Preston Varrick looks like a middle aged Chinese man with slick backed black hair. He wears suits tailored for him.
Preston Varrick was the apprentice and subordinate of Oliver Thrace, acting as his lieutenant and fulfilling his place after Thrace had left for Hong Kong. As he was not very subtle in his interrogations and other criminal activities, the Inner Council was forced to remove him from his original position in London. Varrick was added to the project of infiltrating Asia and was assigned to Japan. He worked again together with Thrace, unhindered by the anti-western sentiments that plagued Hong Kong.
He operated under the cover of a British import company in 1993 and quickly inserted himself into the local drug trade and black markets. Despite his good start, however, his contacts were failing, Yakuza gangs began to threaten his domains.
He is ultimately a Magister who once served the Tremere in Hong Kong. There are claims that the Tremere sent him into central Asia in the early 1990s CE but suffered immense setbacks and was ultimately recalled to Vienna. After many years at the main chantry he was promoted to Magister. He does not speak of what he saw in Asia.
