April 1760 – Eli Zook is born in Lancaster, PA in 1760 to Amish parents. He is the 3rd son of 11 children.

Nosferatu Clan Symbol.png
1778 – Eli’s remaining elder brother returns to Lancaster, PA during the most violent part of the American Revolution. He urges Eli to return for his own safety, but Eli felt that his Rumspringa had not ended and was not ready to return to the Amish faith and his community.

Nosferatu Clan Symbol.png
1783 – Eli’s Rumspringa had run its course and he was to return to the Ordnung, but instead remained in Philadelphia and took up an apprenticeship in blacksmithing. At this time, Eli began courting a local woman outside the Amish faith and community.

Nosferatu Clan Symbol.png
June 1785 – Eli encounters a scuffle in an alleyway near his home in Philadelphia and stumbles across his future sire with his unsuspecting victim. Yorgar throws himself at Eli and Eli manages to stave off his initial attack with his strength and stamina, but ultimately falls to the vampire’s superior skill and strength. Yorgar is impressed with Eli’s strength, and knows he is in need of a companion in the coming days. He opts instead to ghoul Eli to see if he is worthy of his clan.

Nosferatu Clan Symbol.png
August 1785 – Eli is permitted to return to his Ordnung in an attempt to find forgiveness for his unnatural life, in hopes that his community will accept him back into the Amish faith and community. Upon returning to the family farm, Eli is shunned by his mother and father as well as his entire family. He is seen as an unholy abomination and a tale of caution to his siblings to wish to further explore the outside world. However, they spare is life, and his eldest brother is tasked with keeping track of his movements through written correspondence. Eli returns to Yorgar and begins his tutelage into the new Camarilla of the New World. It is at this time that Eli accepts Yorgar’s Embrace into clan Nosferatu.

Nosferatu Clan Symbol.png
1785-1811 – Eli and Yorgar explore parts of the Louisiana Territory north towards the border with British Canada. They trade beaver pelts for money, assuming the identities of French and German trappers. The German trapper was easier to play off with Eli due to his Pennsylvania Dutch accent.

Nosferatu Clan Symbol.png
1812 – Eli and Yorgar slaughter an entire tribe of Native Americans who were known for scalping families living in the frontier of the Ohio Valley and other areas near the Great Lakes. Eli and Yorgar allowed the women and children to live, but their appearance coupled with their thick fur clothing began rumors swirling of mysterious creatures in the Canadian wilderness. It is at this time that he meets a Brujah named Payback who is working as a nurse on the American side of the war.

Nosferatu Clan Symbol.png
1812-1848 – Eli and Yorgar traverse the Northwest Territory, continuing with their lucrative pelt trading business. Eli sporadically uses his blacksmithing skills when in frontier towns to complete commissions for frontiersmen and their families such as hatchets, axes, nails, and other useful tools for settlers on a homestead.

Nosferatu Clan Symbol.png
1820 – While residing outside a frontier town in the NW Territory, Eli is approached by his old friend Payback with a commission for his blacksmithing services. Eli and Payback begin to talk about the war and decide it would be fun to spar and compare their fighting capabilities. The two are very evenly matched, with Payback being the nimbler of the two, but Eli having the strength and stamina to keep up with Payback by landing mighty blows. The two decide to exchange knowledge of their blood powers (Obfuscate and Celerity) as fellow respected warriors.

Nosferatu Clan Symbol.png
1848 – Yorgar is destroyed in an explosion during the California Gold Rush. Yorgar and Eli had built up a sizeable business selling mining equipment made by Eli to prospectors in California. Losing all of Yorgar’s business contracts, Eli is forced to leave the business and make money through periodic commissions from local blacksmiths in need of assistance. The advent of the industrial revolution is beginning to make Eli’s trade skill obsolete, with his only sources of work coming from horseshoes and occasional custom pieces for wealthy patrons.

Nosferatu Clan Symbol.png
1849-1865 – Eli moves throughout Nevada, Colorado, and Missouri until reaching Tennessee, hoping to find fresh opportunity and safe haven in the hills of the Appalachians.

Nosferatu Clan Symbol.png
1865 – Eli begins protecting members of a small mountain community from returning Confederate soldiers looking for easy looting from these rural communities. Witnesses say that this creature attacked the return soldiers, dismembering them and in many cases decapitating them with a large burning scythe. The shadowy man is given the moniker “God’s Hammer” as his wrath is often focused away from households of faith and humility and towards men of sin that prey upon the weak.

Nosferatu Clan Symbol.png
1865-1974 – Eli continues to reside in the smaller communities dotting the southeastern Appalachians, but continues to travel periodically to larger cities for gatherings of the Camarilla. He is a staunch believer in the tenets of the Camarilla and is a vocal critic of Independents. He volunteers to rid areas of the Appalachians of the Sabbat, and continues to enact his wrath on a sect he feels are amoral. Many Sabbat are cleared from the southeastern Appalachian Mountains as Eli’s strength provides safety to the mortal population.

Nosferatu Clan Symbol.png

He opts to settle near a town west of San Antonio. Helotes at the time is a sleepy town with a small population set in the foothills of the Texas Hill Country. With plenty of cover and low chance of his discovery, Eli is able to enter San Antonio as he pleases to conduct business in the Camarilla.

Nosferatu Clan Symbol.png
2002 – During the declaration of war by Anarch Baron Roger Felton to the Camarilla, Giovanni, and Setites of San Antonio, Eli retreated to the Hill Country west of the San Antonio. There, he lived in relative obscurity until the conflict had passed.
