Commonly Known

Name: Övé Háskell

Notable Traits and Features:

Övé Háskell (pronounced Ooo-vay Haws-kl), Primogen of Clan Tremere currently in the City of Kelowna, as well as Primogen in the early- to mid-1800s in Malta. He is a loyalist of the utmost; his loyalty to Clan Tremere is unwavering, and is a not-so-vocal yet obvious supporter of the Camarilla.

However, Övé is no stranger to Sabbat controlled regions, as he has conducted business transactions with every Sect, societal station, and Clan, in both kindred and other mortal interests. His dealings have lead him into enemy territory which, for reasons unknown to many, has allowed him to also return from these regions unscathed. It's unclear how he is able to travel into Sabbat territory, only to walk back out as if on a clear, spring evening stroll. This remains to be one of his secrets kept close to his chest.. and one which, when asked, Övé will refuse to answer.

His demeanor is that of a pleasant and cordial fellow, willing to speak to and associate with all manner of personality or station, above and below his own. That said, he is quick to stand up for, and against, those he deems necessary, without issue.

Although he walks with a limp, Övé seems to be a man of stature and refined taste, enjoying the finer things in his unlife, from expensive, Toreador-tailored suits, to high-end fedora hats. His reputation precedes him, however, as a womanizer (but in the most attentive and polite manner), and as a man who will do what it takes, to whomever is required, to accomplish a job or deal. His notoriety is globally recognized, and rumours abound regarding his past. Rumours of intra-Clan ties are plenty, and his reach has been known to extend very far beyond mere federal borders.

If there's something you require, Övé is likely the person to get it for you. Need someone removed? Speak with Övé. When things just aren't quite going the way you wanted... don't look at Övé, it wasn't him.

Known History

Born the son of a Norwegian nobleman, Övé was already in the heart of intrigue, plot and murder. When his father was murdered, young Övé was shipped away to foreign lands to protect his noble heritage.

As a young man in his early 20s, Övé made his way to Constantinople in a quest for knowledge and growth. What awaited him there was much more than he bargained for.

After decades of service as a retainer to a twisted regnant, Övé fled back to Europe, and survived as he'd learned... through guile, blackmail, deception and sheer will for survival. This lead to the eventual final death of several dozen Kindred, who unwillingly gave their unlives to his continued survival. This methodology of survival was what eventually lead him to also discovering that not all Kindred are willing participants in his practice of trapping, drinking from, and killing kindred. One of his targets would eventually lead to his capture, near death, and eventual embrace within Clan Tremere (after proving himself too valuable to remove from the earth completely).

Travelling the western hemisphere, Övé eventually found himself travelling the North American continent, making connections wherever he went.

In modern nights, Övé is known as a boon-maker, deal broker, and at the very least, a man of his word. No one will ever find him untrue to what he says. Usually because, if there's been a non-truth spoken, that person isn't around to confirm or deny.

Knowledge Known to House and Clan

Within the Clan, Övé is known as a Pyramid climber. He's always been ambitious, and the structure of Clan Tremere affords him the means to grip the rung higher than his station should allow to help pull him ever higher.

Within 20 years of his release from the Accounting, Övé was awarded two quick promotions to Apprentice of the Second and Third Circles of Mysteries due to his dedication of study and simple learning ability. This quick head start to his advancement bolstered Övé to look and reach ever higher within the Clan's hierarchy.

For nearly 300 years following, Övé was moved around the Western hemisphere, both training retainers, Acolytes, and Apprentices in the proper ways of serving House and Clan, and in assisting or leading construction and / or leadership duties with Chantry business. This has earned him the attention of the Elders, specifically his grand-sire, to be groomed for service within the Societatis Transitus. His ability to control and lead lower ranking Tremere, as well as ensure the safety and continued success of the Clan, has proven nearly flawless, and has given him the opportunity to provide strong Clan leadership in the Western region of Canada.

To this night, he currently sits as Regent of Kelowna, and is the ranking Regent of the western half of the country.

Rumors

  • In the very early 1800s, there are but a handful of Kindred around the globe who are aware that, for all he has shown to be unwavering and die-hard, pro-Clan, there was a short time period when he would have been removed of his unlife for his actions. Had his elders known that he was, in fact, peering over the edge of the abyss, there is little doubt he would have had himself removed entirely from existence. His only saving grace was the assistance of a highly unlikely source, and friendship with an Elder in the City of Bristol.
  • There has been hushed whispers of Övé cavorting with the Sabbat on a positive note, however, all efforts to prove this have come up with nothing for proof. He HAS been seen in many war-torn regions, where cross-sect violence has been prevalent, but nothing further has been proven.
  • Whispered words speak about a man who, upon being thrown in a warded, ultimate-security prison constructed for Kindred, killed the childe of a noted Luminary Elder while in their cell, only to walk out unmolested.
