Character Information

Known History

Born in the 1900s near Detroit, MI, James grew up idolizing Harry Houdini. By the time he was sixteen, he was practicing card tricks and other slight of hand forms of prestidigitation, making a small living to help his family. His mother grew ill and died of pneumonia not long after, or so James thought. His father grew obsessed, claiming something about a secretive cult that had murdered her. It drove his father to madness and then suicide. This led James to attempt to debunk these so-called cults. Unfortunately for him, his investigations led him to the local Tremere chantry.
Before he could investigate the premises to closely, he heard a man tell him to go home. It seemed a wise course of action, so he did. To his astonishment, his mother was there, waiting. She explained that she was given a choice, to kill him or to bring him to work for the vampires that she was now one of.
James, of course, took the logical choice.
While not schooled by or embraced by his mother, she was present for some of his studies and there during his embrace.
James moved around the country after his acknowledgment, assisting in preserving the masquerade. As of late, he's been a citizen of Peoria, IL, and once served as seneschal. Now he tours America where he can, delighting courts with his stage show.
