The Dionysian is an elusive Malkavian methuselah, rumored to be over 3000 years old. He participated in many important events of Cainite history, such as the Great Prank, performed so that his clan could join the emerging Camarilla.
Many different tales have been told about him; they say he is of divine blood and blessed by the gods with divine madness, they say that he participated in the Baali Wars, that he walked many Roads before choosing Sin, that he tries to break static reality, that he can travel to Arcadia by force of his own power, that his laughter drew the Malkavians to the Great Prank - the ritual to cut of Dementation from the Camarilla aligned Malkavians.
Some vampires say that the Dionysian visited Carthage, crossing the walls of the city long before the war ended and that he, by his power, caused great riots throughout the entire city. It is said that the defenders of the city went mad and frenzied as he walked from wall to wall. The Dionysian himself claims to have been part of the Eleusinian Mysteries of ancient Greece, guiding the masses in their rites to return Persephone to the Underworld, although he has been repeatedly known to lie.
Malkavian neonates report that they received aid of him in the early nights of their unlives in order to support the rigors of their selective shattering psyches. He is supposedly looking for a special Malkavian (or Malkavians) who can lead the clan to the next level of enlightenment. The Dionysian sees the comrades of his clan as the secret to restoring hope and magic to the world.
