Character Information

Known History

William Harkness arrived in Hartford with the New Year in 2008; for the first few months of his time there, he could usually be seen quietly sitting in Elysium with a book open in front of him. He served as a Deputy to various Sheriffs from his arrival until 2010, but as a general rule seemed to be less interested in politics than in his Academic studies.

He supported Victoria Rowlands' Praxis against Stast after it was revealed that the former Malkavian Prince had Diablerized a Sabbat Elder; later, he was involved in a series of strange happenings which culminated in a battle against a spirit of great evil. When Sariel Sefirot threatened to kill Rowlands in Elysium and take the City for himself, Harkness declared that he would not stand by and allow either to happen. Instead of stay in the city for the political collapse that followed, Harkness left for Portland, Maine.

Arriving in May of 2010, he quickly became first a Deputy, then Sheriff himself. In recent months he has travelled up and down the Eastern Seaboard and as far as New Orleans, for Prince Villon's soire.
