In his mortal days in London, Horace was a dillettante in many fields, possessing an unkanny skill to appear at the right time and know the right people. Unable to be an artistic active himself, he instead learnd to spot popular trends before they were known.
When he found the Gothic literature, he became consumed, even trying to pen down his own creations. Following down various strenches of the movement, he breached eventually the Masquerade and found a blood cult in the possession of a Toreador. Striving to become immortal like them and have all eternity to master his poetic craft, he threatened the terrified Kindred to embrace him, otherwise he would expose him and his cult to the public.
The Toreador complied, but Horace soon found out that the unlife of the Damned was difficult and hadn't many pleasures. Still searching for artists he can imitate, he is now doubled damned as he can never perfect anything and is damned to forever watch others fulfilling their artistic drives.
