Information Known to the Nation at Large
Shakespeare on the park appeared on the national stage sometime late 2014, an individual who given his proclivities perhaps should be better known. Still, he makes up for this absence with a passion. He’s a great storyteller and performer, (though a terrible actor, he’d never admit to that) He has a grudge against the Fianna, and against hillfolk. The reasons for these grudges aren’t currently known. Given how much he loves to tell stories, it's surprising that even the many stories he tells very few involve his actual past, or if they do the focus is on others.
Part Bard, part Journalist, part literature aficionado, part historian, he is all galliard in a style and manner that is uniquely his own.
He manages to make a little money, just enough to keep his bookmobile/motorhome on the road. All of his extra cash always seems to disappear almost as soon as he makes it. He's worked odd jobs, teaching, performing, busking. He has rescued libraries before, and is constantly going and saving books from destruction, which he often hands out to local neighborhoods. He's notorious for going and fighting to save cultural locations, often rallying nearby packs to assist him in these endeavors, and is quite passionate about history and culture.
He also has heard of something called a book tank. And he really really NEEDS it. No really.
If one digs enough one can find stories of a literature teacher experiencing a first change, and before the garou found him he was abducted to be experimented upon. Of a daring rescue that freed this individual. Of a story of daring do, and great activities... then of the pentex first teams and blazing guns. It is said he died that night. That what remains is a shell of who he was. Or maybe, it's a coping mechanism.

- "'Twas a bit of a fit of pique and temper, the clashing of an ill-chosen word from a bladed tongue against an unexpectedly raised blade. Parry, thrust, riposte...the lesson is this. Never in your life should you cross a Galliard with a gift for words, be they born high or low. The love that I bear him can afford no better term than this - he is a villain. No less am I...the question becomes who is Tybalt, and who Mercutio?" - Benjamin de Provence
- "I hear there are Bone Gnawers who eat human flesh, and it makes them crazy. If you ask me, Shakes is PRETTY DAMN CRAZY. Surely you don't think that's a coincidence."
- "Shakespeare in the Park is a disgraced Silver Fang who is hiding in the Bone Gnawers from his many enemies and rivals. His real name rhymes with... Falbrecht."
