Germaine was an Anarch neonate around the time of the French Revolution who entered into a whirlwind affair with a vampire contemporary of his: Countess d’Adhemar, childe of the infamous Toreador Elder and current Toreador Justicar Madame Guil. Germaine used the Countess as a source of information and funneled the sensitive intel he stole from her to keep one step ahead of the Camarilla. The information he gained was ultimately used to help depose the mortal monarchy of France at the time, with Clan Toreador’s influence weakened as a result. When his manipulations were uncovered, Germaine was placed on the Red List by the Toreador.
Titles and Accolades
- None Known
- He managed to avoid capture over the centuries, but came to public attention recently when Clan Brujah placed him as their candidate for the position of Imperator within the Camarilla. This would have been a coup for Clan Brujah who claim the Countess was complicent in Germaine’s activities and made him a scapegoat once her involvement was discovered. Further, Germaine’s appointment to the post would have resulted in the Brujah bringing a powerful Anarch back into the fold, let alone one beholden to existing Clan Elders for the removal of the death mark upon him. Germaine sought to receive clemency, but stated he would only join the Ivory Tower if he obtained the position.
- This was not to be, as the Elder Gangrel Karsh, Warlord of the Camarilla, acquired the new role.
- Germaine’s reputation was damaged among the Anarchs, but many respect that he only would have left the Movement for his removal from the Red List and a seat of power that could be used against his foes.
