Character Information

Known History

Strategize. Operationalize. Analyze. Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

Alec was in Griffin in its first nights as a Camarilla domain, but disappeared soon after. He has since been seen in Savannah, Athens, Atlanta, and Middle Georgia.

He presents himself as a strict rationalist with survival of the Kindred race as his first and guiding principle. Alec speaks at length about the problems of limited resources and marshaling them towards ends that will get the most return on investment, while playing down his stake in financial matters and markets. Instead, he speaks "from a security perspective," gladly explaining risk management theory to any who will listen.

Alec strongly advocates prestation and the use of boons to settle debts in Camarilla society. He has spoken at gathers in Macon, Athens, and Atlanta about what he sees as pillars of the Camarilla, coming down harshly on those he believes weaken the boon economy. Alec has taken his points to the international Camarilla forum, writing on the necessity of Kindred getting paid to fight off a growing movement of citizens volunteering services "for the good of the domain."

With this perspective and background, Alec stripped three of his fellow Ventrue (a Keeper, a Prince, and a Sovereign Prince) over their allowance of a self-described "mummy" to live in Atlanta and Griffin as a "ghoul." He quickly lost his primogen seat, but recovered by becoming Deputy Sheriff and enlisting in the Ivory Legion.

Alec continues his efforts to protect the Masquerade not only by addressing issues himself, but by putting his expertise on the market and hosting salons, giving lectures, and holding informal conversations on the topic. He has made public offers to instruct Camarilla Kindred in skills commonly needed to address these kinds of situations. There is no need for a one-man war. If all Kindred bear responsibility for keeping the Masquerade, Alec is determined to see to it that they have the right tools...and no excuses.

His consulting background never too far from the foreground, Alec advises Princes, Sheriffs, and others on tactical issues, stressing the need for coordination and discipline. On multiple occasions, he has been given field commands in operations against enemies of the Camarilla like Sabbat, lupines, and hunters. He strives to lead by example and is not afraid to put himself on the front lines against such foes, but often works with younger members of Camarilla domains to instill military values in them, sometimes to the point of actively recruiting for the Ivory Legion among those same younger Kindred. His work as Servire to Archon Dubhan sees him mostly in Griffin, GA these nights. He is often seen working with young Kindred who've found themselves serving in Camarilla positions, explaining the ways of the world and advising them how to work towards prosperity and stability.

Rumors

Views from outside. Drawn by Dora Jay.
  • An affair turned foul is the cause of his departure from each domain he has left.
    • (Ventrue only) Hence that shiny new Serpentine Egg?
  • Alec Finch would steal from an orphanage if it would get him a quick buck.
    • But moreso because he was an orphan as a child, and still hates the places.
  • Betrayed his Prince and the Ventrue by publicly airing dirty laundry considering the "ghoul" Ephraim.
    • Just an excuse to strip his more accomplished clanmates of status to elevate his own position.
      • Of all the Archons around to be servire to, why would the Ventrue go with a Toreador with a long history of antagonism towards his clan? Hmm...
  • Alec despises paisleys.
    • Actually, have you ever seen him wear a tie at all?
      • He wore a dapper green one when he took his seat on the Middle Georgia Primogen Council.
        • And another striking green one when he was named Servire to Archon Rachel Dubhan.
  • Alec was allegedly involved in the disappearance of one of his Georgia clanmates. Was destroying the standing of the local Ventrue not enough?
  • Punted spectres back into the deadlands through a painting.
  • I am Prosymnus.
