Strauss is a mysterious figure, but his rank as Regent indicates that he mastered the blood magic of his clan to an alarming degree. He is also highly proficient at the Obfuscate discipline, and seems to be the one responsible for leading and anchoring the Tremere influence back into L.A.
He is the archetypal Tremere wizard, and like most of his lineage, is scholarly dedicated but also willing to sacrifice little bits of knowledge for the safety of the clan. He shows a great deal of loyalty to the Camarilla, but no loyalty to Prince Sebastian LaCroix.
