Public Name: Hugo Valentine
Apparent Age: 25
Concept: "He is a Sociopathic Puppetmaster" -Traci Niklas
Physical description: Valentine dresses in dark, expensive yet unremarkable suits often wearing leather gloves if in a non formal setting. His harsh features shift between cold indifference to scowling in anger or annoyance. It is rare to see him smile outside of the observance of another's suffering, or political blunder. Most agree the curse runs deep in his blood, almost to the point of it being a palpable aura (eerie presence and beacon of the unholy flaws). Despite a host of personality flaws and supernatural creep, Valentine is able to speak with the weight of a legitimate authority and is an experienced politician (Natural Leader merit).

During the 2015 conclave he further argued a need to cripple if not disable the internet.
