Azrael of the Rose (aka. Azrael il Toreador)
« on: 2006-11-27, 15:45:55 »

Name: Alexandre (al*eh*shan*dreh) DeAnorim               
Race: Kindred
Clan: Toreador           
Generation: 9th
Sire: Dante Alighieri
Human Age: 23
Blood Age: 362
Rank: Elder
Faction: Camarilla (in name only)
Diciplines: Auspex, Celerity, Presence, Potence, Obfuscate..... 
Powers: Doubletalk, Shadow Feint



                I, Alexandre DeAnorim, was born in 1621, in a village outside Oporto, Portugal. My early years were uneventful, my father was a carpenter, and so it seemed I would one day follow him in this trade, as was common in those days.
   One day on my nineteenth year I was running an errand for my father in Oporto, when coming from a tavern I heard the most beautiful music. It was a young violinist and his wife up from Italy. They had come to make some money before moving on to Madrid in hopes of playing at court. For a week, I came to the tavern every day to listen and talk to the violinist,  infatuated with the music, which seemed to me to express the very essence of the soul. When the time came for the musicians to leave Oporto, I begged them to take me with them, and to teach me to play as they did. The violinist and his wife reluctantly agreed, and I, having no great love for my father, and knowing he would never understand, ran off with them to Madrid.
   For the next two years I lived and studied in Madrid, learning the art of music, stealing for my bread. I quickly became quite good at both, eventually amassing enough coin and skill to purchase some finery and, posing under some pretense, to play at a lavish ball in the manor of some aristocrat or another. I played better than I had ever before, earning me much praise and attention. The most attentive of all the courtesans and nobles was Dante Alighieri (8th generation), an Italian poet, my sire.
   Dante saw in me the potential to surpass my two teachers, and he doted on me accordingly. He bought me the finest clothes, gave me a room in his own palazzo to live in, and took me to the most decadent and wonderful parties in all Madrid. I was his protégé, and he loved me (in a totally plutonic way ;D)
   Then suddenly, in 1644, without warning or apparent cause, Dante roused me in the dead of night from sleep and ushered me into a carriage. We traveled on and off for 4 days, arriving finally in Paris. I asked Dante why we  had to leave Madrid and in such a manner, and he told me everything.
    The then Prince of Madrid (a Ventrue, of course) had come to him, demanding he embrace me immediately so that I could be sacrificed to the Inquisition to draw attention away from the Camarilla elite in Madrid. My sire loved me too much to sacrifice me in such a way, and so despite his loyalty to the Camarilla, he took me and fled Madrid, knowing he could never embrace me there without the Prince using me, and fearing his wrath. He explained to me his true nature, and offered to give me the false life, which I immediately accepted. I am embraced in the year of our lord 1644, in Paris.
   From then on I was with Dante always. From 1644-1736 we traveled the world, seeing all the great cities of Europe, (except for Florence, from which my sire had been exiled, and Madrid, to which he feared to return) as well as Cairo and Alexandria in Egypt. Then in 1737,  I finally convinced Dante to go with me back to Madrid,  longing to see again my mortal home and confident that the danger of retribution had passed. Reluctantly, he agreed, But while there in 1738 we encountered a different kind of trouble: The Inquisition. My sire was captured, tortured, and killed, and in my shame and guilt and fear I fled to my first home of Oporto, where I succumb to grief and enter a torpor for 34 years, blaming myself (and the Camarilla, who I would never again trust) for Dante’s final death.
   Upon rising, I returned to Paris as a courtesan and continued as I always had, though now the songs of my soul were filled with pain and sadness. I became more guarded, affecting the demeanor of the stereotypical Toreador hedonist to hide my true cunning. Then in 1789, when the French Revolution broke out, I left Paris and Jouneyed to my sires home of Florence, Italy, where I met an apparently Austrian Tremere pianist, by the name of *insert Scipoten’s true name here*, beginning a rivalry/acquaintanceship that continues to this day.
   I lingered long in Italy, finally departing in 1849 for the new word and the American port town of New Orleans. Immediately upon arriving, I was set upon. *insert Captain Boxman’s true name here*, a Brujah,  was the first kindred I met upon disembarking, as he tried, and failed, to cut my purse. I needed friends, and I needed information, and I quickly learned that he had both. He had connections with various levels of the Camarilla in New Orleans, as well as among the local Nosferatu.
   So, from 1850 onward, we were a team. Gambling, drugs, alcohol, weapons, prostitution (escorts only, none of that street trash), if it was happening in New Orleans, and it was illegal, we had a hand in it. I hatched the schemes and greased the right palms, bribing, flattering, and blackmailing as necessary, and he worked the streets, meeting with, intimidating, and sometimes strong arming our many contacts and associates. Eventually, around the time of the Harlem Renaissance in New York City in the mid- 20’s, we expanded out of New Orleans. We now control the assets of a casino in Atlantic City, two night clubs (one in Miami, the other our original in New Orleans) several ghouls in NYC who fence stolen art and other valuables and give us a cut of the profits (and a few choice pieces) in exchange for vitae, and a small side business running blow from Columbia to Miami, all of this right under the noses of the New York power of the Giovanni and the Setites.
   Living in my lavish 14th floor haven in New York City, I am also involved in stock trading and investments. My loose bond with the Camarilla extends only so far as to keep me informed on the day to day machinations of its members, and to take opportunities therein as I see fit. I play much the part of the decadent Toreador Bon Vivante, but its merely a mask for my cunning.

This is the fourth time I've read your profile, Azrael, and I love it. It is so... canon. It is very close to both reality and the books. ;D Not to mention how you seamlessly tied two other profiles into your own. ;)

thanks man, i could porbably turn this into a proper short story..or evena whole story, novel style, but i would never be able to publish it (fucking white wolf) and i doubt filling in all the gaps would be condusive to role playing, so alas, it remains as is. but it is pretty tight i agree.

The way I'm going to run my "chronicle profile" is whenever I meet someone new, it will be easy to weave him/her into my story even after I finish it since I will be the only one posting. I can copy/paste my old posts into WordPad or whatever and delete my posts up to the point in time I first meet my new acquaintance, then repost everything again with the final message directing where to find the new post. It will be tedious, but worth it.

So Scipoten, I guess something will happen to you in the end of our current roleplay? So I can meet the new you?

I am going to continue our current role play as Scipoten, but everything I said about my past regarding Scipoten is now noncanon (that includes the profile I sent you, Azrael, though it is closer to my outline for Slaydin). Call Scipoten a "test run" for me to sharpen my RP skills thus benefiting myself and others from what I have learned. I will use what I have written in the past as "inspiration" and try to include things I have written before in my story, but some of the things I wrote before were prior to me submerging myself in the books or I had just gotten started and screwed up some of the facts. Everything that happened in Jakovis' Bar is noncanon up to the point where we stepped through the mirror to my Chantry. The deal is still the same, but the way I made my offer is noncannon. I still offered you the power of Lure of Flames, and in exchange, you subject yourself to my experiments so that I may study your mind. After that, it is mostly canon. In fact, the only noncanon statements in A Study of the Mind is the circumstances of my Embrace and some of the details regarding my diablerie of the Assamite on page 1. Everything else in that thread is canon and will be treated as "present day."
