Vampire: New Venice
Master of Rarefied Banes, Sworn of the Axe, Guardian of Rose Plaza, Sheriff to Elder Ambrose Thomas
Gant Jones was born in San Francisco, California in 1832. His father was a white man and his mother a black woman. Menial labor, minor thievery and hard fighting ruled Gant’s early years on the chilly and misty streets. The California Gold Rush found him working deep underground in a mine, toiling in the cool and dry darkness. Never one to give in to cowardice, Gant volunteered to work in the Jeebi mine… the mine that was, according to the local Indians, disturbing the spirits of darkness. Miners disappeared, never to be seen again in those dusty shafts. It wasn’t spirits in the mine who found Gant, but a Nosferatu vampire. Impressed with his courage, the Nosferatu embraced and sired Gant.
At least, this is how Gant tells the story of his rebirth.
Gant is a light-skinned black man, about 6’ tall, and appears to be about 30 years old. Muscular and quick moving, he is a master of armed and unarmed combat. He is able to easily best the both you at the same time.
Gant is the Heroes’ mentor. Ever since the night five or so years ago he found you, he’s educated and led them through the politics of the city and the teachings of the Ordo Dracul. Never a kind man, but he is just and fair. His presence, you believe, saved your reputation and skulls many times. He saved their lives, just once. He was not alone the night you were found. His companion, a Kindred named Anthony Charm, intended to end your unsanctioned existence. Gant placed himself between you and certain death. It is only later that you learned Mr. Charm was the Sheriff of Lancea Sanctum elder Leo Messerschmitt. Gant faced denunciation, censure and punishment but the two of you were allowed to live under his supervision and responsibility.
