Overview

xxxxx Growing up in poverty Francis always longed for the nicer things in life. Through hard work and struggle he was able to claw himself up the social ladder. He was a respected Psychiatrist with powerful clients. Everything looked like it was starting to go right for him. That's when he was embraced. His sire, a sewer dwelling Nosferatu known only as Slinker, knew he was starting to go over the edge and wanted a companion and someone to help him piece together his humanity. After having a taste of the life he always wanted Francis now had to give that up to live in the filth attending to his sire. Slinker was never the most social being and Francis spent the early years disconnected from any larger society. His sire was nominally a member of the Ordo Dracul, but rarely interacted with other members. As soon as he could Francis fled from his sire and while he occasionally checks in with him Francis is embarrassed by his sire's lifestyle.

xxxxx Francis tried to return to the sort of high society circles that he ran in before, but his nosferatu nature got in the way. He no longer could work crowds or connect with people the way he previously did. If Francis hadn't meet Oscar Brecht he probably would have given up and slunk back into the sewers to live like his sire. Oscar Brecht showed him a different way of living. Another Nosferatu, Mr. Brecht didn't let his nosferatu lineage hold him back. A member of the Cockscomb Society, Mr. Brecht was proof that he didn't have to be the sort of monster everyone thought they should be. Francis took Mr. Brecht as his Avus and was inducted into the Society

  • Obadiah: He seems fair. A bit rough for one of his kind.
  • Dazbolg: A monster of the worst kind. He represents the lowest we can fall to. I thought we had an understanding.

  • Lawrence: Seems to run a tight ship.
  • Neferet]: There are motives there I don't understand.
  • Paulette: As quiet as my own used to be. I can only imagine the waters run just as deep
  • Selene: Loyal to no one but herself.
  • Ibrahim: A good man to work with. A shame that he is gone. The Invictus could use your guidance
