Physical Description

An athletic but otherwise fairly nondescript German man, Lotharius keeps his hair cut in a modern side-part and dresses in stylish business suits.

Brief History

Born 984 CE in Cologne, Lotharius was inducted into the Order of Hermes at the age of 8. He quickly rose through the ranks and started travelling as a diplomat for the Order. In 1012 CE, he befriended Etrius who introduced him to House Tremere, but during his stay in Ceoris Lotharius suffered a magical accident that caused him to vanish for twenty years. When he returned, the House had started to adopt vampirism in order to escape their weakening magic. He reluctantly accepted the Embrace from Etrius and, afterwards, traveled the world again acting as a diplomat for the new clan and to hunt Salubri. In 1032 CE, he was made Pontifex of Austria and tasked to turn it into a base of power for the clan. He quickly usurped control over Vienna from the previous Prince, Valerianus, making the city a bastion that the Tremere have kept until this day despite ongoing pressure from the Tzimisce Methuselah Shaagra. When Tremere's torpid body was relocated to Vienna, Lotharius stepped down from the Princedom and formed a privy council that would rule instead. Lotharius was part of this council for several years, until 1529 CE when an Assamite seemed to claim his life. In truth, he killed his assailant in the fight and fell into torpor. Etrius kept his survival a secret, until awakening in the 1700s CE. Only when they were certain that the contract on Lotharius’ life had ended was he reassigned to the New World to build the Clan’s influence over the colonies.

Current Status

Unknown, but some believe he is serving in Vienna at the Mother House.
