Not much is known of Zanobi's early life by many these nights before being granted the Proxy Kiss. "Knowledge is Power" a quote that echoes through his psych as he absorbs any and all information either shared or taught to him through his various tutors. He buries himself within the Family's libraries for long periods of time expanding his mind. After Clan Elders thought him ready, he is embraced to be utilized as a weapon, or tool, a year into the Cappadocian Purge by the Giovanni. He fills this role well methodically helping in the clans thought extermination. For centuries he is considered a useful tool utilized both by Clan and Family expanding their influence and power anywhere he goes. In 1793 he arrives in the city of New Orleans with others of the Giovanni Clan to establish control over the port City. After years of fighting for dominance over the city with other interested parties, he utilizes influential help of old alliances established and favors owed by those in his debt, Zanobi seizes control over the entirety of the city. This becomes one of his greatest achievements, as his name begins to be recognized throughout vampire society. His strategic mind set and ruthlessness helps him maintain control of the city for centuries from attempts of its seizure. This lasts until 2011 when the city is one of the first to be established as an official Independent Alliance Sect controlled domain, becoming the Giovanni Doyen alongside one of his oldest allies, Setite Elder Serapion, the Painted Serpent. In recent nights Zanobi has become more reclusive from vampiric society focusing on clan business and personal future ambitions...
