Appearance

Mors01.jpg
6'8", 180lbs. Very tall and slender. Brown and gray hair, with visible dark veins on his skin. Dresses in modern semiformal attire with gloves. Obviously low Humanity. Moves with a slight wobble or limp, due to an old injury from life that never healed properly.

Personality

Mors is always unfailingly polite to any Kindred he meets, whether his purpose is to have a conversation about the weather, or to kill. He speaks a little slowly and a little softly, with an odd accent that seems to slip from one place to another. His gaze is particularly intense, and he often stares unblinking for long periods of time, especially in conversation.

Mors is not a front-line fighter, preferring instead to plan, organize, and when necessary, strike unseen from the shadows. He insists that a fair fight indicates someone has already failed. He has acted as a strategist, a tactician, a diplomat, as well as in several other capacities.

He is known to be fanatically loyal to his clan and the Camarilla, in that order.

Known History

Mors was Embraced sometime in the 1500s. As is true of most Nosferatu, his history is somewhat difficult to follow, since he remains hidden from sight so much of the time. It is confirmed that he served as a scout and intelligence gatherer during the Napoleonic Wars, and that his success in that conflict gained him a reputation for effectiveness and discretion.

From 1815 to the mid 1900s, Mors has shown up all over the world, usually at the request of one who wishes to utilize his services as a spy, a troubleshooter, or an assassin. (OOC: Please feel free to email me with any ties you would like to make during this time!) He acted on behalf of princes, Justicars, and Elders of Clan Nosferatu.

In 1946, the offices of Clanhead, Steward, and Myrmidon were created. Mors was asked to serve Clan Nosferatu as its first Myrmidon. Exactly what duties he performed between this time and his retirement in 1985 is a closely guarded Clan secret.

Throughout the mid to late 1900s, Mors spent the majority of his time in California. He retired from the position of Myrmidon and entered torpor in 1985, for reasons unknown. He had not been heard from by any Non-Nosferatu until he reemergence into Kindred Society in 2015, 30 years almost to the day since his retirement.
