Society: Camarilla

Clan: Ventrue

'Position: Prince

Known By The Camarilla:

Rikard Bouwman is the second Childe of Luminary Ventrue, Desmond Aldred, and a scion of House Everard. He has exerted subtle influence through mortal history in his never ending quest to ferret out the Sabbat and other dangers to the Masquerade. Though he was a transient Kindred during his youthful and years as ancilla, he has settled into the mantle of Elder and becoming a shepherd of the Kindred condition. Until the past two centuries, he was not overly concerned with the operations or internal politics of the Tower or the Kindred Condition itself, instead choosing to cultivate wealth and challenge himself by intervening in mortal affairs and using his extensive web of networks to maintain the Masquerade and ensure the safety and sanctity of the Kindred species and the Tower itself.

He has served as the Ventrue Primogen for the City of London in the mid-19th Century, the Primogen of Los Angeles in the early part of the new millennia, and now holds the title of Prince of Los Angeles.

Known By The Ventrue:

Rikard demonstrates proclivities informed by his descent from Tinia and Julia Antasia. He is a naturally inquisitive and curious fellow, and more tolerant of new forms of governance and pursuit than many of his fellow Elders. He is still staunchly loyal to the Camarilla, but does believe the more moderate influences within the Anarch Movement may have legitimate criticisms that need to be addressed. He is far from an appeaser and placater, but will listen with an impartial ear and make decisions based on applicable evidence rather than nepotism and favoritism. This has won him allies in surprising corners, and more than a few enemies.
