Byron Unmasked - 02.png

None that are known publically.

Real Name: Byron Gautier

Apparent Age: Twenty-eight

Concept: A political think tank, originally, now Phantom of the Opera.

Physical description: While unmasked, Byron looks to be about a charred up corpse but a usually well dressed one. He, more often than not, carries a "Phantom of the Opera" style half mask and is almost always seen with a guitar case that holds either an acoustic Gibson or Cordoba Hauser Spruce Top Classical Guitar (though, on rare occasion, it houses a Fender Stratocaster that was custom ordered).

While masked, Byron bears a faint resemblance to Humphrey Bogart.

Detailed Status:
Acknowledged, Admired, Influential, Loyal, Revered (As Primogen)

Character Information

Known History

Born in the bayou not far from Slidell, LA, Byron Gautier moved to the west coast to pursue an acting career in the mid-1920s. With the advent of the "talkies", he was looking forward to showing off his musical talents when fate intervened. A ghoul jealous that he'd not been chosen to be embraced by his Toreador sire sabotaged Byron's Model A then tried to burn him alive. The Toreador was so shaken by Byron's appearance that he declined to embrace him and accepted a trade with the local nosferatu who'd noted Byron's dealing with local politics. So, instead of becoming a rose, Byron became a Nosferatu. His appearance changed little.

Byron, surprisingly, holds little enmity for the Toreador and, due to a recent encounter with Archon Incisus, has flourished in his artistic talent.

Byron has been seen taking selfies with people and yet, somehow, it's his masked face.
