Chill in the air cold as steel tonight
We shift

Born into slavery in the newly conquered Gaul, Catus was put to use in hard labor - anything that needed lifting or carrying. It was a life of drudgery and pain. He hated the Roman invaders, seeing them as the root of the trouble he faced in his life. While he was opposed to those Romans in his land, there was little he could do about it due to his position as a slave.

In 84 CE, Catus was found and Embraced by Roman Kentarch. To this day, Catus is still uncertain as to why he was chosen - just that he was. He traveled with his Sire for quite some time, being released in 100CE. A free Cainite, it was the life he'd always wanted - to be in charge of his own destiny.

Catus kept around the Gallic Empire, leaving only after the Merovingians claimed the territory. His travels took him to Hispania, wanting warmer climates near the sea. He spent quite some time there, learning the Muslim culture and blending in with the people. As Christianity began re-establishing control over Hispania, Catus aided in the change of rulership.

In 1391 CE, he enjoined the Anarch Revolt, actively lashing out at the constraints that the Elders enforced to control Cainites. He aided many campaigns, seeking to change the way that Cainite society was run. When the Anarchs came to the table with the Camarilla, he was one of the original Cainites to join the Sabbat. His bestial nature was not suited for the pampered halls of the Camarilla, nor would he live under their rules.

When Mexico was being explored and conquered in 1521 CE, he migrated over to North America. He sought to explore and gain a foothold for the Sword of Caine in the new land. In 1920 CE he headed to Mexico City, bolstering the efforts there to gain full control of Mexico.

In more modern nights, he moved a bit further north - aiding the Sword of Caine in their two assaults on the Domain of Phoenix - eventually claiming Flagstaff and Prescott for the Sword.

"I have not heard that name since before the Great Revolt, truly one of the most terrifying beings that I ever had the occasion to converse with. He taught me a very valuable lesson, while the Gangrel may not be the best suited for the salons of court, the language they do speak is one in which they hold true mastery." - A Lasombra of the Camarilla
"I learned to be small, and unassuming, I learned that just because one's bite is worse than one's bark, that one can still be good. I learned much from my time with him, and I hope that he still walks the nights." - Ana
