Lucien de Maupassant was a socialite among the Tremere, known to investigate occult meetings in order to find potential recruits for the Tremere Clan. He met his future childe, Aisling Sturbridge, during a seánce and later saved her from becoming Aleister Crowley's new Scarlet woman. After a couple of years, he brought her to Vienna to grant her the Embrace. For the next 30 years, he and his childe acted as free agents, who delivered messages for the Clan and the Inner Council. During World War II, de Maupassant disappeared and has not reappeared during the Final Nights.
