Faction: Tester has not expressed his political choices, one way or the other. He follows orders when they're given, but he's also known to go out on his own when he feels like it.
Testers does not speak much of his time before his embrace, but he has mentioned that his father was a priest of some kind, and he was a well known mechanic.
Tester was one of dozens of people embraced in the mid 1990's in a mass embrace. Unlike most of those embraced that day, Tester managed to survive, and, over the years, become a true member of the Sabbat. He credits this to a pack of Cathari who took him in and trained him.
He later returned to Sacramento, and joined the HoW out of respect for their decision not to join any of the faction vying for control of the city. Sometimes he seems a bit out of place, because he does not seem to display many signs of faith, but those who speak to him about his "Tests" soon discover the heart of a cold, insidious fanatic.
In the years that have followed, Tester has made a name for himself as a stalwart, if unhinged soldier. While his social skills seem non-existent, he has shown that he has a quick mind, and a is more than capable of holding his own in a fight. In particular, his skill with guns is renown.
Unlike many Malkavians, Testers mind is not chaotic mess. In fact, his madness seems to have cut him off from all emotion, or feeling. Tester has expressed that the closest he feels to joy is when he is presented with a challenge he must investigate, or overcome. Indeed, when Tester fails at a given task, he is almost always obsesses with it until he get's better.
Most had believed that Tester would become a Cathari, but recently, he actually started to follow the path of Death and the Soul. He hasn't spoken much about the decision, but has stated that every life is a lesson, and ever Test has an answer.
While not an official duty, Tester is known for both his skill with mechanics, and his skill with torture. He seems to look at both jobs with the same lack of enthusiasm.
- Tester has a haven full of Vampires, Humans, and other things, that he tortures for fun.
- Tester is far, far more screwed up than even he knows.
