Real Name: Presumably James Melrose
Apparent Age: Early-to-mid 20s
Concept: College student turned Malkavian
Physical description: Jim is fairly average-looking, with brown hair, brown eyes, and somewhat well-kept facial hair. He tends to dress in darker colors, and is rarely seen without a light jacket or blazer. He has a somewhat serious expression on his face at all times, though this belies his easy-going attitude. All in all, Jim at a glance is nothing standout or anything to write home about.

Originally from Massachusetts, Jim Melrose was embraced on accident while on a trip to Belgium in late 2010. His sire, Yvette, took him under her wing more out of pity and guilt than any real sense of responsibility. Jim was taught how to focus his powers and aid those around him in the domain, which he used on more than one occasion to great success. He became something of a go-to seer for fledglings and neonates, someone with powers of the mind that was also friendly and approachable.
Near the tail end of 2017, Jim wanted to head back home. Discovering that Massachusetts was controlled by the Sabbat, he headed north into Maine, eventually settling in Lewiston/Auburn. Since then, he has acted as a lesser harpy to Echo, a fellow Malkavian and somewhat mentor, Keeper of Elysium (though was removed from the position after the praxis seizure of Lewiston/Auburn by Prince Connor), and Primogen for Clan Malkavian in Lewiston/Auburn. Recently, he was named Seneschal by Prince Vaclav.
