Character Information

Known History

Ken West is a Japanese-American born in California and interned in Manzanar as a teenager during World War II. He graduated college at the University of California, and was attending graduate school, though that was interrupted. Ken was drafted during the Korean War by the US Air Force, and served as a bombardier until his plane was shot down in 1952. He arrived back in California later that year, as a Tremere under the Accounting.

Between his Acknowledgment in 1959 and the end of the 20th century, Ken was part of various strike teams providing support to Camarilla forces defending Camarilla Domains and attacking Sabbat Dioceses. They performed over 30 missions, most of which were successful, though with numerous losses. In 1999, his squad was obliterated, with Ken the sole survivor - barely undead, and barely fending off Wassail. He took an extended tour of Europe, spending a decade and a half recovering his Humanity and sanity.

Ken returned back into Camarilla public life in Iowa City, IA in 2015 where he assisted the Domain in their nightly efforts. He never held an official position despite working for two Sheriffs (William Richardson and Kovacs Kavachi). After the Domain fell in 2017, Ken traveled again, finally settling in Santa Rosa CA in late 2020. In December 2020 he became a Deputy to Sheriff Arabella Esperanza of Santa Rosa. In March 2022, Arabella ascended to the position of Seneschal, and Ken became a Steward to Keeper of Elysium Victoria Velario.
