"One must always strive for perfection; anything less disrespects yourself and your associates."
Name: Mr. Giles Blackett
Date of Birth: 1847
Born as the second son to the Baron of Matfen Hall, Northumberland, England, he would never inherit the title. This was something he never really cared about, as he preferred spending his youth doing embarrassing things. He would !GASP! spend his spare time with ACTORS. The family could mostly ignore this, but once he started performing with a company in London (under a pseudonym of course) it was a step to far. His father gave him the "opportunity" to study abroad in the Middle East. The fact that this "opportunity" happened to be far from the theatre's of London, he was assured was just a happy coincidence. He therefore spent years in what is now modern day Syria. During this time Mr. Blackett found a love for the sciences and the then burgeoning study of Archaeology. He even managed to make a tidy sum for himself selling some finds to various museums. His delving into Assyrian ruins caught the attention of the being that would be his sire. Strangely he was released after only a few years. In another coincidence, the evening of his release his Sire went missing and has never been seen again.
Later he met a gentleman that would become a great friend, Mr. Anton Von Forcade, and they would travel together for many years. Their chancing together was the start of the The Janus Coin Coterie. A group of Camarilla Kindred who have been known to travel to various city over the years with the particular goal of stabilizing those cities. Montreal is their current home.
Recently, Mr. Blackett has come into acquaintance with one Elder Rhiannon Byrd, who has enlightened a few details about his missing Sire.
Her passing during the Conclave of 2019 allowed Blackett to gain closer relationships with others of his blood. After spending a year in Service as Servire to Archon Alexander, he gained the attention of Justicar Giess. He was named Archon by Justicar Giess in early 2020.
