Androvikus’s true appearance is never seen, hidden by black robes and a plain white mask. His face is rumored to be nothing but teeth and eyes.
Androvikus is believed to have been embraced in Herodium. During the Long Night and the War of the Princes, Androvikus encouraged his childer and his clan to look to one another in solidarity. A logician and scholar of reason, he felt the High Clans would abuse their position and that the only way for the Nosferatu to secure their power was to ensure that any attack on one Nosferatu was an attack on them all. Androvikus is reported to have great deal of knowledge of the Nictuku and believes their status as monsters to be only fairy tales told by other Elders to scare their childer into submission. Stories are told that in Antiquity he was killed by a Nictuku’s poison, only for him to resurface again in the 800s. After the Treaty of Tyre, Androvikus disappeared and was not heard from again until the Red Star appeared in the sky. Androvikus’s behavior since returning implies that the circumstances of his awakening were unexpected and unwelcome.
The Androvikus that walks in recent nights is drastically different from the reasonable, restrained logician who argued for solidarity among his clan. He now speaks of blood, vengeance and a “betrayal beyond words”; his beast stirs within him. Many suspect the root of this change is an echo of the betrayal by the Nosferatu Stanford Warwick who violated the solidarity of the Clan at the behest of Imperator Karsh of the Camarilla.
