Cristiano Gasparo di Giovanni, outside of the family, goes by Gasparo di Giovanni. On first appearance, he is an anomaly: He distinctly appears to be a middle-aged man with Asian features but with an Italian name. Anyone foolish enough to question or joke about it never does so a second time. His head is shaved and he has a neatly trimmed goatee and mustache. He usually is seen wearing simple, but fashionable clothing, suitable for the occasion, favoring Italian designers. Despite being quiet, reserved, and low-key, he quite obviously emanates a frightening inhumanity about him, that goes beyond being cold, distant, and dispassionate. To make matters worse, it is said that plant life withers at his approach and dies upon his touch, and a noticeable chill follows in his wake, regardless of the surrounding temperature. He never raises his voice and remains calmly analytical during even the most challenging of circumstances or environments.

Rumors, lies and half truths

* He has a vengeful streak, one example of which is that he bound the souls of his maternal grandfather and his maternal uncles as a result of an offense against him and tortures and torments them regularly.
* He has abandoned any vestige of humanity after a personal tragedy some time in his past.
* He is a half-blooded Giovanni, adopted into the family centuries ago and embraced only after considerable debate within the family.

* "Our Anziani are cherished and beloved and those that speak for them like Elder di Giovanni are just scary as il diavolo. He may smile a lot - but to so do jaguars right before they pounce. Look it up." - Vincent Giovanni
* "One must always maintain one’s connection to the past and yet ceaselessly pull away from it. To remain in touch with the past requires a love of memory." - Agnese Giovanni di Calderari
* "A Kindred of knowledge, class and poise. Elder Giovanni is by far one of the most gracious people I have ever met. It is an honor to trade observances with him and share perspectives." - Jozef Prinz
