A short man whose grey skin has a reddish tint, the Egyptian has straight brown hair cut just below his ears. In modern nights he dresses to the occasion from extreme formal wear at a Camarilla court, to ripped jeans and boots at an Anarch meeting.
Marcus Sextus was born in Cairo in the first century AD and traveled to Rome just after his embrace. He introduced himself eagerly, but was little more than a pawn in the machinations of the city’s elders. While visiting Dacia, Romania in 475, he discovered a plot to invade Rome, but after contemplating his experiences, he abandoned Rome and fled to Africa. There he became known as "Esemkofu" (the Speechless One) and terrorized the settlements that he came across as he wandered, his only companions a horde of jackals and the occasional childer he embraced from those brave or clever enough to try to fight him off. It is rumored that during the 14th century he found a community of sorcerers and, after sharing knowledge with them, he was staked and left to burn in the sunrise. These rumors were proven untrue as he was seen two hundred years later in the Americas.
Marcus is quietly active in the United States. He typically stays out of Sect-claimed territories, but does enjoy the amenities of large cities which usually finds him having to interact with Camarilla Courts or Anarch Baronies.
Time Frame for Embraces: 24 CE to 1300 CE Requirements:
- PC Sects/Factions: Any
- Path: Any
- Special: The Egyptian embraces from the upper classes and nobility. And his children often display political acumen, extensive academic and lore based knowledge. Childer backgrounds should reflect this.
- Special: Marcus is using his lineage towards some master plan. He insists his children are well schooled in sectarian (and mortal) politics before releasing them. This better allows them the capacity to negotiate and gather boons and favors. Marcus insists his children have relationships in at least two of the four sects and encourages heavy boon usage.
- Special: Childer of the Egyptian have an aversion to both thaumaturgy and ‘gifted’ mortals. His childer usually avoid interaction with any mortals and have a hard time working alongside practitioners of blood magic. They are encouraged to take the Intolerance Flaw.
