Augustus Giovanni








4th (originally)

3rd (through Diablerie)





Augustus Giovanni is a powerful Cainite Necromancer, the patriarch and leader of clan Giovanni. He managed to diablerise his sire, Cappadocius, and became a third generation vampire.

Augustus is not in fact an Antediluvian - as he was not Embraced before the biblical deluge - however, being a third generation vampire, he's often referred to as the "Giovanni Antediluvian".


Augustus Giovanni is either the luckiest or unluckiest Antediluvian ever. He diablerized Cappadocius in 1444, and out of his contemporary usurper-diablerists (Gratiano, Tremere, Lugoj and himself), he may be the only one who truly succeeded. He's built up clan Giovanni from a being a specialized sub-branch of the Cappadocians into the new Clan of Death. He's wealthy beyond conception, his clan is amazingly well-organized, and he stands an odds-on chance of destroying the world.

He is however, a weakling by his generation's standards (through his comparative youth and his failure to absorb Cappadocius' soul). The neonates of his clan often refer to him as "Uncle Augie", and treat him as little better than a myth. After the failure of the Giovanni master plan (to obliterate the Shroud), the long-term plans of Augustus and his clan have been cast into ruin.

Final Nights Edit

In Gehenna, he is slaughtered easily by (depending on the scenario) the millennia-older and far more powerful real Antediluvians, their Methuselah servants, or even a coterie of younger vampires. In the end, Augustus' greed and ruthless desire for power comes to nothing in the face of those to whose power he was foolish enough to pretend.
