Basic Statistics

  • Subject Name: Lucius, called Lucien Paricii


  • Subject Clan: Malkavian


  • Known Factions: Thought Police (Clan Faction); The Paricci (Malkavian Lineage).


  • Known Location: San Juan, Puerto Rico


Physical Description:

Lucien is a tall, thin man. A scholar's emaciation from his mortal days, he projects an air of confidence over wire-frame glasses perched upon a hawkish nose. Obviously from some noble stock, he has the long thin fingers of an academic, and a delicate appearance. He almost always wears stiff, starched clothing, typically with a blue suit-vest. He always has an elegant, well-made (Crafts x6) pocketwatch, and in recent nights the chain is adorned by a single Chinese coin.

General Knowledge:

No one is quite certain how old Lucien is, but whispers persist that he was a young man, possibly a monk, certainly learned, in the Byzantine Empire more than a millennium ago. Since that time he has spent much of his existence traveling, studying various Kindred domains as they arise, testing to see whether they will flourish...or fall. What is known of his travels is that he has amassed an impressive network of elder allies over the centuries, becoming a Pillar of the Ivory Tower, a representation of its light to all Kindred. He views the sect as the Beacon on the Hill, the great City that all vampires were born to join, it is only a matter of time.

In a surprising turn, over 111 years ago, Lucien seized praxis of San Juan, Puerto Rico in the wake of elder corruption and the Spanish-American War. Rumored to be on the island to study isolated Kindred populations, he has since set the stage for a stable Camarilla domain, ruling with just order since. Why the elder halted his travels and explorations is unknown, but to the modern nights he stands as a solid representation of the power of a Camarilla Prince.

  • The Prince cannot be out of earshot of a mechanical clock without falling to frenzy.
  • Ever since placing the coin on his watch chain, the Elder Malkavian has grown slightly kinder, less stoic and withdrawn. Has he perhaps softened his cold heart?

Quotes

  • "I think Prince Lucien saw something in me when he allowed me to reside in his domain, I really want to show him that he made the right choice" - Lydia Brooks
