  • "Prince Jean-Pierre Durand has a keen sense of flair and the dramatic. He would have made a perfect Toreador. What higher praise could I offer?" - Kendrick Seamus O'Shea
  • "Many have questioned my eldest's methods. Let them do so to their own folly. I know him well enough to trust that he has the long game in his sights." - Adrienne Maxwell
  • "There is an old adage: 'As Goes Clan Ventrue, So Goes the Tower,' how true it is within the halls of Waterloo. I and the gathered kindred would gladly follow Prince Durand to hell and back, secure in the knowledge that whatever the task, it serves to better our noble Sect" - Benjamin Sharp
  • "Prince Durand is a very thoughtful man - he even made special effort to excuse my family from his laborious court proceedings. I cannot wait to visit Austin again, if just to enjoy the hospitality so freely given." - Carmina Giovanni
  • "Prince Durand is a wise and thoughtful leader. Why else would he have chosen me as his Seneschal? He knows accomplishment and determination when he sees it. And I never disappoint." - Nenette
  • "The speech he made the night he took Praxis? I've heard it's like before. It was a war ballad. I don't know what kind of fight he's expecting but he's ready for it." - Sweet Dick Bobby Turner
  • "Jean-Pierre Durand: Proof that the old ways are the best ways." - Mr. Chen
  • "Most Ventrue Princes that I have encountered are essentially the same. Devoted, stalwart, et cetera. But Prince Durand adds pageantry and gravitas. And in this, he understands the need for spectacle. It is the difference between building a Praxis, and building a legacy." - Einhardt Wagner
  • "My heart swells with pride that he is the Liege of Waterloo, an inspiration to us all." - Chloe Pavlis
  • "Waterloo Court and Domain fits him well, and he to them. As a King, I'm not surprised by his success. As an Established and Venerated Elder, his actions and words don't surprise me either. As a fellow Prince and neighbor in the Region, we do not agree on everything, and I'm, again, not surprised. It's all very refreshing." - Prince Orelio Taipetra of Baton Rouge
  • "I have nothing but respect for Prince Durand. He's a gracious host and stabilizes The Tower in this city. He's definitely good for business." - Angelo
  • "He is too soft, too kind, too lenient. One should not give second chances to monsters." - The Broken
  • "My cards tell me he is the rightful King of Spades. He has a rare gravity..." - The Gambler
  • "A Prince who listens to reason, and perhaps could be what we-- I-- need most right now: A chance." - Jackson Flynn
  • "Prince Durand can sit quietly in a chair, and bear a more complete sense of leadership than can most in the fullness of their verve and vigor." - Master Harpy Johnston Ramsey (JR) Forbes, Domain of Waterloo
  • "Prince Durand is the perfect example of everything the Ivory Tower is and should be. He is kind, patient, fair and rules powerfully, if we step out of line. He gives us all a sense of stability. I feel honored to be a member of Waterloo, because of him." Candice Caine
  • "He wields his political power like a scalpel instead of a cleaver. Let us all hope that he stays a surgeon, because you don't want to see him as a butcher." - Marus
  • "If anything, he knows how to keep his bitches in check." Johnny Shine
  • "His sire spoke highly of him, Our houses have been allies for some time. I hope he represents his house well here, I'll find out as more time passes." Dexter Mara
  • "For most of us there is I think that time when the night begins to end and in the quiet before dawn we let down the mask a little and are ourselves for just a moment. I think for Prince Durand there is no such time. I hope he is well, alone behind the mask." Lazuli
  • "History repeats itself in many forms. During the crusades its was Europe verse the old world. During the Golden Age of pirates I sailed in defiance of European kings. Now I find myself once again on an opposing deck once more, yet this time this European was willing to parlay instead of declare war. We shall see if he continues to intrigue me." Achilles Hellgate
  • "I have never been particularly fond of Frenchmen. Prince Durand was kind enough to remind me of why that is the case." Magdalene Lys
  • "I look forward to meeting him." Evelyn Atwood
  • Prince Durand is a man of great intelligence, with the mein of a true leader. I wish he and his domain well, and hope to have the chance to enjoy his hospitality again soon. - Vitalia Giovanni
  • "The word to describe Jean-Pierre Durand is 'tenacious'. Where there is adherence to time-honored traditions, you will see Mr. Durand." - Edward Porter
  • "Sayeedy Durand is an individual consumed with power. This is not a bad thing, as many of the short term seem to think. It is what quickens him, moves him, and delights him. The fact he has survived as long as he has, indicates he is very good at accumulation of what he wants. His idea of power, however, differs from mine. - Zaina
  • "I've never had to talk to him personally, but he paints a terrible picture of himself. I've only ever seen him in public twice, but both times I felt embarrassment for him. Everyone else may cut him some slack, but from his rep, i was expecting a lot more." - Evan Lazarus
  • "Oh that Durand is mighty fancy. And a sweet talker. I'd say he's trying to get somewhere, but he wouldn't get far. Not with Bob. Bob gets jealous." - Mabel Ruby
  • "I like that Elder Durand inspires me to try and do better. He didn't even have to get angry or raise his voice at me, he was just inspiring in a cool and collected way. I'll try not to let him down." - Melvin
  • "So that is Elder Prince Emeritus Jean-Pierre Durand. He is nothing like I expected, and yet, everything to expect. Our exchange was short but civil; that is truly the best scenario." - Costanza Rodriguez
  • "Why does this Ventrue not simply seize his rightful place from the low-blooded one that sits on his throne?" - Andrasi de Covasna


  • Kemintiri is in love with Jean-Pierre, and it is this tie to her that brings the eyes of the Inner Circle upon Austin.
