Andrew Emory is a Lasombra who uses the tentacles called forth with Obtenebration to carry himself, as he is disabled.


Just because rebellion is sometimes necessary or desirable doesn't mean you can build a routine out of it. Most of the time, really, we don't behave all that much differently from the Camarilla or most independent vampires. Leaders give orders, underlings carry them out.
  — Andrew Emory

Originally a reporter, Emory's life was changed in a car crash that paralyzed him from the waist down. He continued his work, however, but but became a young punk around the post-punk zine scene. In 1986 he was among the authors that wrote a book called KILLING LEVIATHAN. NEW PERSPECTIVES IN ART AS THE DEATH OF MONO-CONSCIOUSNESS AND FASCISM.

After ten years of cruelty and constant challenges, he caused another car accident that claimed the life of his parents. As he lay in his car, unable to get out, a woman approached him. She told him that everything that had happened to him had been a test, to see if he was worthy. After telling him the story how she was herself subjected to a similar trial by her sire, she asked him if he would accept her the gift of the Embrace. Andrew did, and from that night on, he was a Cainite.

He was introduced into the Sabbat by his sire Conrad, but after a brief period of time his strength of character made him the Ductus of his own nomadic pack, composed of Barry Morn (the Pack Priest), Roxana, Simon Peter, Niccolo, and Rose. Andrew himself rose even further in the sect's echelons and was appointed Bishop of Portland. His duties to the sect allow him to often travel the world, but around 2000 he was given the dire task of capturing and escorting the infamous Lucita de Aragón to a Court of Blood at the order of Lasombra Cardinals.

Andrew and his pack surprisingly succeeded in the perilous endeavor, but after Lucita's trial, they were assigned to accompany her to stop a group of Abyss summoners. During a Vaulderie, Lucita had an insight on Andrew's persona, describing him as a malevolent knot of will surrounded by an endless transmuting body – his flesh is anything and everything he needs it to be. She said his mind is clear and correct in every regard, and he demolishes mysteries by his very approach. It is also considered that part of him would never be happy with society or indeed with anything but the act of destruction.
