About Zebulon

  • "I don't always understand him, but I respect him deeply. And I care - he is someone worth caring for." - Dr. David Archer
  • "Not every kindred is fit to serve the Tower as a Harpy. It's always a pleasure to discover that the position holder is level-headed, well-informed and insightful. With such counterparts, little problems become far more manageable." - Olivia Collins
  • “Without fail, when I show up at a Camarilla affair in Boston, I seek him out first. I do so enjoy his perspectives.” - Ambrose Goddard
  • "Of all of the children of Malkav from Boston that I met, he was the least interesting. Which makes me wonder what it is he is hiding, why he is hiding it, and how he hides it so well. I will find out, mark my words!" - Susurrus
