TJ Blackthorne says he was "born on a mountaintop in Tennessee, tried to kill a bear but the bear killed me." He showed up in Annapolis in 2008 and immediately got caught trying to steal a priceless Edwardian goblet from the Prince, dressed in a ninja costume. A colorful character, being a self proclaimed raccoon ninja apparently means he is a fantastic scout who frequently has the goods. In 2010, he very publicly married Janet Lyndon, childe of Archon Jessica Kesch. They are married still.
In 2011, TJ performed a poem titled "The Snake Oil Seller" and presented a carving titled "The Triumph of the Mongoose" at an Elysium gala hosted by Prince Adrian Florent in Baltimore. Not long after, TJ became the Harpy of Annapolis, replacing Vincent Velario who had just claimed Baltimore's Praxis.
Shortly after becoming Harpy, Rook of Clan Toreador took the Praxis of Annapolis. TJ has remained Harpy throughout Rook's rule, becoming increasingly more vocal and active, both locally and nationally.
TJ would never admit to having enemies, only friends he doesn't really like.
