An imposing Greek man, Lysander has the bearing of a man who is already looking for the next great war. Not battle or fight, a war.
A Spartan general in life, after the Embrace and centuries in Greece, Lysander came to Rome and befriended a young Ventrue, Titus Venturus Camillus, called Camilla, the childe of the Prince of Rome. Lysander had centuries of knowledge of the world outside of Rome and Ventrue history, and he spent years debating with Camilla, teaching him and supporting him when Camilla confronted his sire and proposed that the Ventrue should lead Rome in truth, and not simply from the shadows. While Lysander denies it, many assume that he and Camilla killed the Prince, putting Camilla on the throne. In time, Lysander saw the abomination of Carthage and advised his friend and Prince, Camilla to take action but it would be years before Camilla finally agreed to attack. Lysander emerged from the battle scarred but otherwise intact, having taken the final Brujah head himself. They salted the earth so that nothing would ever grow there again — and so that no torpid Cainite could rise. Lysander continued to be active if quiet in organizing the Ventrue, and it is said that he helped guide Hardestadt in creating the coup that would lead to the Camarilla’s creation in 1450. Whether this is true or not, Lysander is rarely seen by most Ventrue, and any actions he has taken have been through proxies.
Lysander returned to Kindred affairs in December of 2016. He seems to be preparing for another war on the horizon. Camilla has requested his old ally and friend to meet with him. Lysander has yet to respond. The clan holds its breath for the two heroes of the clan to reunite.
