From Mind's Eye Society 2017 Wiki
“Home isn't where you're from, it's where you find light when all grows dark.”
— Pierce Brown, Golden Son
Camarilla Position: Prince of Dallas
Lineage: None. Why? You think you're a good fit?
Notable Traits: Unless he is trying to hide himself as someone else, he can be identified by his mask and the DDL patch on his jacket. On very, very rare occasions one may notice that he casts no reflection.
- Warned [March 15 - April 15]
Physical Description: Assuming he is appearing as 'himself,' Mendo appears as a man of average height and proportions. Everything he wears is either brown or mostly brown with another dark or neutral color. He always wears coats, jackets, or vests with prominent buttons. To date, he has only been seen in public with one mask, a brown mask designed like medieval plague doctors' masks. In private, a small handful have seen him wear other masks.
High-Level Concept: A disgraced and fallen Santero who finds purpose in protecting his chosen city and his chosen people.
RP Role: Grumpy, overly protective big brother.
Persona:Casually, Mendo is gruff, grumpy, often sarcastic but rarely outright aggressive. For those who can read others well, they can tell that beneath the all but intolerable exterior is someone who *cares.* He tends to be drawn to individuals who need protecting, or who he values so highly that he insists on protecting them.
He is remarkably good at curtailing the sarcasm, though he rarely ever hides the cynicism. He can be perfectly polite, or he can be so rude as to snub you publicly. It really depends on the context of your meeting and what goals he is trying to achieve.
For all anyone knows, Mendo just wandered into the world from nowhere and began sticking his nose in the business of others. The few Kindred who cared enough to bother learned that he came from Cuba and can place him there during the War for Jenkin's Ear. He was a known Santero. Shortly after his Embrace, he and his Sire went to ground.
Shortly after its founding, Mendo resurfaced in Dallas. It's suggested that he had been there since Dallas was founded, but his presence cannot be confirmed until 1858. He is known to have been in Dallas again in 1922. He is now in Dallas again, having returned in 2018.
(As other characters learn more about Mendo's history, I will expand upon that on this wiki. So far, nobody seems to care. Which is actually just fine.)
