Character Information

John struggles between his personal wants, his duty, and what is right in his eye. Most often times he is blunt and is willing to point out the elephant in the room, but on occasion he has been known to show some forms of etiquette. He spends time assisting local police with missing persons and cold cases, as well as catching the occasional criminal at large.

Known History

Not much is publicly known of John's history. What is known is quite brief and not much in the way of details. John was a police detective turned PI after a messy incident and a case that hit too close to home. He was embraced in Las Vegas by his sire, Malcom Ashcroft, who admired John for his stories and lifestyle. Malcom and John didn't get along well and earned his sire's resentment. Soon after he left Vegas and came to the Twin Cities on a hunch and a lead on a cold case.

Within 2 weeks of arriving in the Twin Cities, under Prince Chester Black, John managed to track the location of a Sabbat pack by his police training alone. Throughout his time in the Twin Cities, he served as Primogen, a short term as Sheriff, and multiple terms as a Deputy due to his investigative abilities.

In September of 2010, John left the Twin Cities to return to Vegas to take care of some personal business. During his time away from Minnesota, he also assisted in the Orange County Seige serving on the team lead by Archon Jessica Kesch. Soon after the seige, he made his way back to the Twin Cities after hearing of numerous problems with Sabbat, Infernalists, and Zio!'s death.
