Character Information

Known History

Not much is known about who Randall Scott was before he became Kindred. Even his name is a fabrication, which he will openly acknowledge. The best that most can figure is that he was a kid in the early to mid 20th Century.

He first appeared on the stage in Baltimore back in 2007, where he became Sheriff after a time. He was an open, gregarious, friendly man who was quick with a joke and a wink. Known for his substance abuse and expertise on Spiritual matters, he slowly climbed the ranks of both Camarilla and Clan.

In 2009 he moved to Ohio and settled in the Domain of Dayton. The events around the collapse of the Domain are confused, but it's clear that he was on the ground during the chaos and involved in some way.

In 2015 he abruptly moved to Baltimore. Rumor is that something happened at a Clan event that year and his travel to Baltimore was not a willing decision, but was actually a form of exile and punishment. Active only for a short time, he allegedly stumbled through several crises before vanishing.

The Randall Scott that resurfaced in 2017 is a changed man. Gone is the old jokester. He's now gaunt, grim, and taciturn. He doesn't discuss where he was except to say that he was "Stoned in a ditch" but is now on the wagon and sober for the first time in years. He finds absurdity and ironies everywhere, and while he does laugh there is no joy in it.

Returning to Baltimore as Luther Rommell was stepping down, he joined the Court as Sheriff once again. After a year he stepped away from the position, citing discontent with the blood he was forced to shed. He has since transitioned over to the Primogen Council where he seems to be re-inventing himself as a "Respectable" member of Society. At least as respectable as a known Death Mage can be.

Allies

Most of his Allies seem to be dead or have abandoned him, and much of his influence inside Clan Tremere seems to have evaporated with his time on "In a ditch". The few that still seem to be around include:

Marli Giovanni

Giovanni in General

Hugo Valentine (Dead, of course)

Eli Manfred

Douma Charoum

Philip Walkin

Lydia Laurent

Ester Lyra

Enemies

Probably quite a few! You don't get caught up in shenanigans like his without making a couple.

He does seem to have nothing but bad things to say about Adam Stonebrooke.

Malcom Durrett doesn't seem to like him very much, and the feeling seems mutual.

He used to bump heads with Selene Lazarion a lot.
