Embraced in 2013 in Hartford, CT and assigned to the Stamford Chantry in 2014 with his broodmate Claire Ward after a few months of introductory lessons by their sire, Fredrick Gold. They arrived just as the new Domain of Stamford was being settled in by the new Prince Che Valiente. Calvin was chosen as Primogen for Clan Tremere which he served as faithfully until the beginning of 2016, when former Prince Valiente relinquished his Praxis to him. He has been the Prince of Stamford since February 2016 and has since been struggling to cope with the burdens and the isolation that comes with leadership.

Has recently Embraced his first Childer, Alistair Sinclair, who was his first ghoul as well. Rumor has it that the "final test" to earn the Embrace was actually a poker game. Alistair won.
He has apparently been acting strangely since the death of his former Seneschal, Tess Montgomery.
Most rumors agree that Calvin Butler is a puppet prince. But most rumors can't agree on who exactly the puppetmaster is. Between his loyalty to the Pyramid, his devotion to his sire Fredrick Gold, his dedication to his best friend Che Valiente, and his fear of an ancient Methuselah that lurks in the shadows, nobody knows who is truly running the Domain of Stamford.
His real sire is Seth Dolan but Fredrick Gold is helping him keep that a secret.
Tremere elder John Reiss owes him his life but Calvin refuses to claim a Life Boon over him.
He is secretly a Follower of Set apostate that was corrupted by Joseph Hildebrandt.
Hates his broodmate Claire Ward for being Embraced only a few months after him and without working through years of being a ghoul first like he did.
He is in love with Che Valiente and often lavishes Che with expensive gifts in an attempt to sleep with him.
Calvin is actually still a ghoul and that's why he is able to harness the power of sunlight without being harmed.
Studies magic that make people trapped or stop moving because of his subconscious abandonment issues.
