“We are born of the blood, made men by the blood, undone by the blood...”
— Provost Willem
Name: Adrien Reynard (DECEASED)
Camarilla Position: Prince of Dallas
Lineage: Member of House Kensington
Notable Traits: Inquisitive, Blunt, Flirtatious
- Authority as Prince of Dallas
- Commander as Prince of Dallas
- Sovereign as Prince of Dallas
- Confirmed as an Elder of the Camarilla
- Established as an Elder of the Camarilla
- Privileged as an Elder of the Camarilla
Physical Description: Adrien Reynard always dresses plainly in simple colored suits or tailed coats. The only adornment a jeweled spider on his tie or a spider broach to honor his lineage. Frequently smiling, ever welcoming, Adrien enjoys meeting new Kindred and bringing them into the loving bosom of the Camarilla.
High-Level Concept: A mystery junkie who loves sticking his nose where it doesn't belong.
RP Role: Adrien believes in Family and the Tower. He will fight and die for his family and the shining Tower he dreams the Camarilla will one day be. Despite this as he has rounded his first century of unlife he begins to feel the years scratch at the edges of his heart. He his prone to frivolous use of boons and favors to try and rekindle the fires of passion that once drove him. He recognizes that this is a weakness but can't help himself.
Persona: Adrien is kind and helpful to loyal members of the Tower. To members of other sects he is the same, only as far as he believes he can coax them back into the loving arms of the Tower. Words are not his favored form of communication. That tickle in the back of your mind while he fixes you with a piercing gaze? That means he wants to talk.
"Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful."
— Proverbs 27:6
Adrien was born in New Orleans at the turn of the 19th century. Turned by a sire that is no longer with us, he spent most of his days traveling with his Grandsire Christian Gerard Marceau. While Adrien was a quick study and left accounting quickly, he stayed with Christian for decades. This longstanding relationship has led observers to note the way he defers to his Elder or seeks his advice.
Despite this history, recent nights have seen a bit of a rebellious streak in the Ancilla. Defiance for the sake of defiance. It's probably going to get him into trouble sooner or later.
He came with the team to retake Dallas in 2009. After Praxis was established Lady Von Jaegar, Prince of Dallas appointed him Seneschal. He has faithfully served in this position for the last 8 years. In February of 2018 Adrien claimed Praxis of Dallas.
He served as Prince until July 2018 when he abruptly disappeared from the Dallas Elysium. Rumors and speculation have run rampant on what "actually" happened (Was it Assamites? His own line removing a nuisance? Dallas is awash with rumors for the curious...) but all that is known for sure is that he was killed shortly after.
Quotes about Adrien
