Born: March 5th, 1964
Embraced: March 25th, 1982
Title or Position: Keeper of Elysium
Information Known by Kindred Society
Neonate Known to be something of a painter, due to the demands of his sire. However he is known to dance as well. A child of the arts, if having the desire to step out of the box of the norm for art.
Been maintaining the Elysium in the absence of a keeper, following the guidelines set by his sire, the previous keeper.
Has an original dagger of Izaak Engelstahl named "Hunters Thrill", which was recovered after his grandsires fall to the sabbat in 2002 and his sires fall in 2013.
Given the circumstance, I feel I did pretty good. My life was always pretty easy. I was born to wealth, was attractive and popular. I skated thru school on my looks and money. I danced because I had a good time and have you ever seen the ladies who dance professionally? Well, who would not want to make their acquaintance?
My time there apparently made a kindred interested in me. While I was not the greatest dancer, I was in great shape. And my natural grace superseded my style, but it was enough for the raw talent to be recognized and the potential to earn my place in society given.
I met Brian after a show, and we had a great discussion about art, culture and the show. I couldn’t help but like him. I felt like I had known him forever and we talked late into the night. He gave me his card. Is it weird that I want to spend time with him? I can’t wholly remember what all we talked about but he kept my rapt attention nearly the entire night.
I remember the concierto vividly. I remember Brian and have a vague recollection of the girls. It’s so strange that he can hold my attention over beautiful women. I found out that Brian wrote the critic column for much of the different things in town.
We continued to see shows and review art. And it wasn’t long before he decided I might be one of his childer. I had no idea what that meant at the time and before he explained it to me, he turned me.
I am not sure how others transitioned but it was quite the challenge for me. First I have to say I was a bit undisciplined, and wanted to do my own thing. I learned the hard way the price of failure. He cut off a finger. Sure they grow back in time, but it still hurts like a son of a gun.
I learned, what was expected of me. I kind of liked being a Toreador and my connection in life seemed to be strengthened. I actually seemed to be better overall.
Brian was a good sire, and when he moved to aid his sire in Greenville. I thought about following but didn’t right away. I came in 2010 following them and have been a behind the scenes player in the political games.
