Lochlann2A.jpg



Hebridean Brujah Elder


Previously Known As: Goraidh mac Ailin, The Lochlannach, Lochlainne mac Ailin, Lochlan Callan

Currently Resident In: The Domain of Atlanta, Georgia

Clan: Brujah

Affiliation: Camarilla, previously an Anarch during the First Revolt.

Offices Held: Brujah Clanhead

Apparent Age: Lochlann seems to be in his mid to late forties.

Personality: Lochlann, once one of the Sect's most formidable warriors, is these days something of a bored and listless dandy. The world has moved on, and those things that once gave his existence meaning are largely gone. The Sabbat have been defanged, the Independent Clans are neutered, and conflicts in the modern era are settled in boardrooms and Salons rather than on the field of battle. He subsumes this distaste for Twenty-First Century tedium in increasingly hedonistic activity, but this is a poor substitute for the thrill of combat.

When encountered in a Court setting, Lochlann appears a little detached, a little insouciant, and perhaps a little more open and approachable than most Elders of his advanced years. He left politics behind decades ago, and has no appetite for the social intimidation that many of his contemporaries indulge in. He is often encountered in the company of members of his lineage, around whom he is typically voluble and friendly - sometimes a little too friendly.


Background

c.1120-1164: Born to a Norse father and a Gaelic mother on the Hebridean island of Islay in the Kingdom of the Isles (modern Scotland). Trained as a warrior and an administrator, spends most of his life in the service of Somhairle.

1164-1314: Embraced by Dominic, takes up residence in Dublin, pledges Fealty to an Elder Baron, and serves as a courier and knight errant.

1314-1398: Moves to Scotland after losing his sponsorship. Travels to continental Europe a few times as a messenger.

1398-1446: Travels to Spain and joins the Anarch Revolt.

1446-1493: Relocates to Italy to assist in the war effort there. Also campaigns in the Balkans. As the Revolt falters he is slowly driven back home and is at Silchester for the Anarch surrender.

1494-1606: Returns to Ireland and keeps his head down while he rehabilitates his reputation. Eventually begins battling his old comrades in the Sabbat as part of this effort. Gets caught up in the Desmond Rebellions, the Plantations, and the associated Kindred behind the scenes political maneuvering, has to flee Ireland when it all falls apart.

1606-1737: Knocks around Western and Central Europe, bored and restless. Still fights for the Tower from time to time. Sinks into a life of hedonism.

1737-1783: Relocates to Boston in North America to escape ennui. Embraces Daniel Byrne. Is reinvigorated by primitive, primal America and battles the Sabbat alongside other powerful Camarilla Kindred. Embraces Hawthorne during the American Revolution, which he supports. An attempt at seizing Praxis from Prince Constance Fournier of Boston results in his exile from the city in 1783 after he is betrayed by an Elder Gangrel named Torquil.

1783-1826: Resumes his role as a wandering warrior, taking the fight to the Sabbat when and where he finds them. He even travels with Torquil for a while after the Gangrel leaves Boston in solidarity with him.

1826-1852: Travels to Russia to promote what he believes is the start of another popular Kine rebellion, but is mistaken and eventually returns home to America, disappointed.

1852-1865: Decides that his personal ethical code makes him an abolitionist, takes part in the American Civil War. Embraces Geoffrey Monroe during the conflict.

1865-1892: Although he still battles the Sabbat when he can find them, Lochlann slowly and painfully comes to the conclusion that the modern world no longer needs a warrior like him.

1892-2000: Settles down in Atlanta, the home Domain of Hawthorne and Geoffrey Monroe. Sinks into self-destructive hedonism until Geoffrey and Hawthorne pull him out of it. Takes the position of Keeper of Elysium to give himself a purpose and holds the office for most of the next century.

2000-Present: Engages in the "Atlanta Clan Cold War" and the ensuing Praxis struggle surrounding Prince Mathias. At the Battle of the Old Fourth Ward he is forced to destroy Geoffrey. Lochlann is instrumental in the Prince's eventual destruction, and personally destroys the Prince's Sheriff, who happens to be Lochlann's own Grandchilde.

You might think it a curious thing for me to comment on, but you must realize that dress is the first way a person makes an impression. If executed poorly it can result in a uphill struggle, a constant battle against the person others have decided you are. But Elder MacAllan proves how to choose rightly.

Yeah, welcome to my unlife." - Hawthorne
