Joaquin Murietta










Christopher Houghton



Joaquin Murietta is a Toreador vampire infamous in California as a mass murderer. He has served his sire Christopher Houghton as a hit man from the moment he was Embraced.


Much of Joaquin's past is based on legends, but he was a desperado in the California territory during the the mid-1800's. He garnered an atrocious amount of kills to his name, and it became apparent he was a threat to the territory. As the populace of the territory began to rally together to find and kill him, Joaquin was approached by Christopher Houghton, the recently exiled Toreador of Boston. Houghton offered him the Embrace, which Joaquin immediately took.

Now a vampire, Joaquin staged his own death to calm the mobs and free himself of any future retribution for his mortal crimes. Free and a creature of the night, Joaquin has been with Christopher since his Embrace into the modern nights. Blood bound to Houghton, Joaquin has since traveled over the world and is now adapt at the skill of murder to better serve his master.
