  • Maintains a centuries old feud with his older brother Pau Lamarca.
  • I heard that Hugo and Marissa St. Claire had a passionate affair...right before she disappeared.
  • Rogue agent of the DuVals or thorn in their side? Best not to ask that family either way, if you want to maintain relations.
  • He has lately taken to making wines of important Kindred he ravages.
  • Thought to be the last kindred scene with Luminary Elder Quintus Lucius Varro before his disappearance.


  • "Hugo represents everything I've ever wanted to be in this existence. My shortcomings and failures as a kindred will forever leave me basking in his glorious shadow. I hate him / desperately yearn to be him. He is, essentially, an undead Ryan Gosling." -- Pau Lamarca
  • "'The blood of Kings flows through my veins. Not because I was made as such, but because I put it there."
  • "Arretez s'il vous plait. Pitié!" --Cornelia Mowebary

  • "Of all the horrors of the known piss your bed at night over Hugo DuVal? You let the Black Swan erase centuries of alliances because he waddled his ass into a room and shook it? My, your ethics and high codes of conduct are set at a lower bar than I thought. Where is that centuries worth of patience? Nevermind.. get out of my office." --Eleanore Laurent
  • "If I'm allowed to quote the unvarnished, unreported, and unexpected words of Joseph, husband of Mary: what the ever-living fuck where you thinking?" --Thaddeus Moreau
  • "If convincing a wanted criminal to turn himself in and give him the dignity to do so with his head held high is worthy of scorn, then I will gladly bear the slings and arrows of such an action. A problem is off the board, but I cannot help but think of the loss of potential..." Prince Rikard Bouwman of Los Angeles
