Marconius is abnormally tall, thin and pale skinned for a vampire. His eyes have changed to orbs of inky black and his skin is a glowing chalk white. His features have taken on an ethereal air with high cheekbones, sharp lines and inhuman symmetry, and his hair is black as night.
Founder of the Kiasyd, Marconius was known to have been active during the reign of Roman Emperor Julian the Apostate when he and two other researchers experimented with fae blood, resulting in his physical transformation. After the clan discovered what had happened, his partners were destroyed and he was banished with strict orders to never embrace. He was not heard from until late in the 12th century, when he and his childer drove the Ventrue out of Strasbourg. Since then, the rest of the clan has tacitly permitted Marconius to continue his research without interference, as his bloodline is small and seems exclusively focused in such pursuits.
Marconius operates from Strasbourg gathering and cataloging his bloodline’s knowledge. He hopes to unearth secrets of vampiric origins that have long since been forgotten. In the pursuit of this knowledge he has discovered lore on many of the other supernatural denizens of the World of Darkness.
