In life, Reginald was an intelligent boy from a lower class family. He was a dedicated student who taught himself Latin and Greek. Unable to find a career to support himself, Reginald spent his nights drinking and roaming the streets in sadness.
Reginald’s Embrace was the result of a feeding gone wrong. He was attacked by a starved Ventrue named Donal, who was in the midst of a frenzy. The attack nearly killed Reginald, so to cover up his folly the Ventrue tried to turn Reginald into a ghoul, but then on impulse decided to Embrace him instead.
One of Donal’s rivals, an elder Brujah, witnessed the whole event and intervened, killing Donal. Reginald has no memory of the event, but the Brujah took him under his wing and claimed him as his own childe.
Reginald knew little about the vampire world, but he took it upon himself to sharpen his wits and soon he found himself welcomed within the ranks of the Brujah clan, where knowledge and debate skills were respected. Reginald finally achieved the status he wanted his whole life and he eventually became London’s Brujah primogen.
Since London was run by the Ventrue, Reginald had no interest in rocking the boat. He favored intellectual gatherings over physical fights. Since Reginald never intended to become a combative Brujah, he never learned Celerity or Potence, focusing exclusively on Presence only.
Reginald’s true linage could be discovered if it was ever investigated or by a simple act of Thaumaturgy. Such a revelation would destroy Reginald and greatly humiliate the Brujah. Just to be safe, Reginald’s “sire” has instilled in him an absolute terror of Thaumaturgy, which manifests as a hatred and distrust of all Tremere.
Reginald is in his early 20s, with curly black hair and pale skin. He tries to look like a businessman, but he is rough around the edges both physically and socially. His lack of funds result in a small wardrobe of ill-fitting suits. He tries to relax when he’s with other Brujah, but he is still uncomfortable around them, just as they are typically uncomfortable with him.
