Saint of the Divinity Within
Gesu was the leading Tzimisce in Constantinople between 888 and 1204. He was the Holy Ghost in the Trinity and the spiritual leader of the Divinity Within. He met Final Death when his haven (the St. John Studius Monastery), was burned during the Fourth Crusade by Gauthier de Dampiere - along with many tomes of the Library of the Forgotten.
Gesu bore the mark of his childhood fevers. Though tall (measuring over seven feet) he was emaciated. His features were exceedingly beautiful, giving Gesu an ephemeral and haunting appearance. He wore long red habits that concealed the face of Lillian in his chest.
In 689, in order to make peace between Antonius and the Dracon, Mi-ka-il (Michael the Patriarch) presented them with two twin brothers, Gesu and Symeon, as students and future Progeny. The boys were only 7 years old.
Twelve years later, the Dracon received envoy from [Tzimisce], advising him to never embrace Gesu. Dracon refused to listen and embraced Gesu, who immediately fell into a deep torpor. His brother waited by his side for his revival.
After two years of torpor Gesu finally awakened. He embraced his brother Symeon, which filled Antonius with rage.
In 890, the Fifth Council took place and Gesu and Symeon were declared leaders of the Tzimisce.
A century passed and Symeon took a mortal lover, a woman named Lillian. Against the wishes of his brother, Gesu embraced her in 1196, melting her into his own chest, believing himself to have reunited the holy whole body of a pure human.
Gesu was destroyed in 1204 in the flames that consumed his monastery.

- Wants the Tremere Abetorius dead.
