by Prince Thorne of
Born outside of Toulouse, France in 1753 to noble Croÿ family.
He attended University, and joined the Acadèmia dels Jòcs Florals, earning a reputation as a romantic, only amoungst those who did not see his shrewd opinions come out in University. He read Voltaire, Montesquieu, and their inspiration, Descartes. While their political theory was found interesting, what he found more interesting was the way they conveyed themselves.
He began his work in politics, though it wasn't until his rather public argument with the University's head that he gathered the attention of his sire. Gawain was in public relations before that was a job description. He used his sway and savvy, not for personal glory, but to assist others in their ascentions to power and in doing so gather influential debtors. Sired 1783, when his sire saw what the Tremere could gain from someone, perhaps not so accomplished or gifted in the occult, but someone who could assist the clan in the political arena.
