In his mortal days, Hans Vroenik was a Jewish conductor in the Symphony Orchestra in Berlin, who had to flee when the Nazis took over. After the war, he returned, only to see his city in ruins. In his sorrow, he started to play violin outside for three hours, attracting the notice of soldiers, civilians and of Anntoinette Larusche, a Toreador who gave him the Embrace in order to preserve his talent forever, after he was attacked by bandits who stole his violin and left him to die from his wounds.
Vroenik continued to work with the Orchestra, composing many works in the honor of his sire and avoiding the politics of the divided city. His outlook on any political situation, however, was the oublic view of most of his Clan members.
