Clan: Ventrue

Embraced: September 10th, 1395

Tall, thick of body and descended from the Moorish peoples, Marcus Cornell is a handsome man with a boldness that makes him remarkable and striking. He seems at home in exquisite suits as well as casual clothing, he seems to define the world around him rather than be defined by it. With a boisterous laughter that can be as engaging as it is aggravating, depending on your relation to it, Marcus is a man that sparks polarizing emotions in others.

Marcus Cornell is a creature defined by many things. The loyalties that he holds dear, the passions that drive him, the force of will that inspires those around him. Considered by allies and enemies to be an intriguing mixture of boldness and refinement, efficiency and excess, diplomacy and irreverence Cornell has never been one to shy from duty or enjoyment. His hungers make him driven and determined in the course of gaining the prizes that he seeks, but those prizes tend to be defined by those he holds duty to. A loyal childe to Hardestadt's line and the the Ventrue clan as a whole, he has been trained to not seek the center stage but instead act to bolster, control and manipulate from the right hand of power. Cornell is an exceedingly charming man, an exceedingly urbane man, and an exceptionally dangerous one.

"It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have very few virtues."
