Character Information

Known History

Nathlar's appearance into Kindred society occurred roughly in the mid Victorian period when he was embraced in England in New Castle. He was granted Acknowledgment nearly half a decade later, and then disappeared for nearly 40 years. He later appears along the New England coast line of the United States. However, his attendance in court was very brief. In 1970 he reappears in Tampa,FL and helps to claim the city form the Sabbat. This time however, Nathlar remains active within the Camarillia courts and remains an active member.

Through the rises and falls of various Princes, Nathlar steadily climbs to different offices of power. Eventually he secures the position of Seneschal to a very erratic Malkavian. In a fit of melancholy and frustration, the Malkavian leaves the city and the Warlock find himself the Prince of Tampa

As Prince, the blood mage seems to become a natural leader, and brings about an age of stability and prosperity within Tampa that lasts for nearly three full years, both socially and physically. However, Nathlar latter grooms a Ventrue to replace him, claiming that his elders have need of him else where. After he abdicates the Throne of Tampa, the Usurper then moves out of the city, and will only be caught visiting the Domain rarely from this point forward.

Nathlar reappears nearly a year and a half later within the Domain of Saint Augustine, FL. He immediately steps back into a position as Primogen and serves Carter Johnson as one of of his chief advisers. The blood mage speaks not only for Clan Tremere, but also for the Samedi of Saint Augustine during this period. He also helped to unhinge and destroy an infernal corruption within the city.

However, Nathlar suddenly disappears a short time later, and is gone for nearly three years without a trace. Many rumors rise to his fate, but then reappears once more and settles back into Saint Augustine once more. The Warlock becomes the Primogen of Clan Tremere once more, and serves Prince Leonard Flynn this time. Nathlar is found during this time period, aiding in a number of investigations within the South East, speaking for the Samedi once more of Saint Augustine, aiding the city of Daytona in being reclaimed by the Camarilla, he speaks for Clan Tremere at the 2010 Conclave with a commanding 112 status gathered behind his name, and all the while he comments little about where he was for the past three years.

However, as time marched forward, Prince Flynn becomes entangled in a personal issue and decides to set aside his Domain to attend to his problem. Primogen Shadowbourne rises to take the position, and after a brief contention, claims the city for his own. Nathlar now faces an intense war with the Sabbat, keeping the Domain focused, and helping restore many traditional costumes to his court.
