Roman [No Longer In Play]
"Stare into the waves; tell me what you see."
A man of below average height, his features are vaguely Arabic, possibly eastern Mediterranean, with dark caramel eyes, lighter brown hair, and skin touched by the sun for years. He's dressed unexpectedly causally, in swim trunks and a surf tee, or hoodie paired with long pants, looking more like a cocky university-student with his tauntingly arched eyebrow and intense stare, but the way he speaks and moves, with complete certainty, tell of centuries of practice.
Established, Privileged, Confirmed as an Elder

Current Location: MIA

- "I am sorry, of whom do you speak? Oh yes, the kindred that looks like the neglected love child of a drunk Gary Busey and a strung out Nick Nolte. He has likely taken to the depredations of his kind and sleeps beneath the waves; he constantly smells like a pier at lowtide." - Lord Simon Kensington
- "لا تنسى من أين أتيت.." - A Shadow From the Deep
- "Roman is everything I am not and I could not be happier for it." -Nepos

- "Ah Roman, who sat at my knee to learn of the Sightless Sea. You have too much potential still to waste it on the Ivory Tower - Astraea
- "It is said that The worlds of the elders do not lock all the doors; they leave the right door open. I am not shy to admit that my path began when I entered the door that he held open to me. I have not looked back since." - Étienne Oumar Ezeazu

- "It took a stranger to seduce me away from the idle pursuits of youth and into the open door of knowledge. For that I can only say 'thank you' and pursue my academic desires with a passionate delight only found among my own clan." - Mila Rurik
- "Without him and all that he has given, I would be lost in rage, anger, and hatred. I owe him..everything." - Lorena Silva
- "Elder Roman is a tome not easily read, but understood. To say that I owe him my unlife is an understatement. He is an unfaltering beacon amidst treacherous seas. A true leader of our blood. A TRUE Lasombra." - Morvenna Mathias
- "He holds the key to the bottomless pit. I have seen it with my own two eyes." - Reverend Gideon Haven

- "I suspect he lures his opponents to assume false weaknesses to be true. I imagine that their last thoughts are colored with shame to have underestimated him." - Olivia Collins
- "Anyone who can face down that Assamite Elder without flinching is worth some respect, no matter what you think of his clan. I never met him as well as I'd like. Seems a mighty interesting figure out there. I hope we both survive long enough to meet again." - Tamara Rose Linden
- "Roman is the sea - all silver and shadow and vision. I appreciate the serene brutality of his presence." - Liam Kincaid
- "I played him recently in a game of checkers. He was slightly aghast that I had flipped the chess board over to the more pedestrian game, yet he opted to try his hand at it. Given his first play at the game, it was not overly difficult to whittle his pieces down to the point where he opted to forfeit when business called. I cannot say whether or not he developed a fondness for the game, but I can say that any Kindred who is both willing to yield when there is no more advantage for them to press on, as well as one willing to partake of new experiences... well, lets just say that my recommendation would be to avoid pissing this one off." - Keith Campbell
- "Dude must think like all women are like into that 50 shades of grey shit for like the amount of like ordering me around he tried to do. Are like Lasombra just like a Ventrue bloodline or something?" - Karma
- "This is why I don't hang out with other Lasombra. Guy acting like I'm infernal--I mean, that sounds metal as fuck, but I know when people are trying to insult me. I didn't even know what that was until he called me that! Its called fashion, Gramps; look it up." - Britney Daye
