Victor Martini was born December 7, 1919 in New York City, New York raised in the riches of high society. Victor's mother, being from France, taught him the French language and the wonders of the French culture. Victor attended Trinity-Pawling Boarding School with the love of his life Michael "Remy." Martini spent his youth attending Broadway and going to the movie theaters. It is rumored that Victor had a sister, who he was very close to.
Due to his love for culture, Martini was swayed by the Toreador Elder, Mikyra Von Driskel, to travel the world and study art. Mikyra took Victor to France to start his studies of culture and art of sculpting, but World War II swiftly made its way there. With clan Toreador going into hiding in France, Mikyra had no choice but to ghoul Martini to assist with Prince Villon's Court. Victor was told to leave behind his mortal life; therefore his family received a notice of his death. It is rumored that Victor was part of the French Resistance preserving art and was in Court attendance with his domnitor at the Louvre when the Russian Brujah attempted to claim Praxis.
Mikyra along with her coterie, The Curators, utilized Victor Martini in retrieving items from different countries. Martini has spent at least a decade in each of the following countries following his time in France: United Kingdom, India, China, Japan, Egypt, Greece, and Italy. Victor became knowledgeable in each culture, their primary language, and can recreate stone and bronze statues based on their cultural style. It is rumored that Airis Mal spent time with Martini in some of these locations.
Summer of 2005 in Italy, Victor created a stone statue that retold the forgotten story of Broderick Kliest which awakened his memory of who he is and the losses he had suffered. Victor left that night with Mikyra, Broderick, and a few other Roses and was gifted with the embrace. Martini spent his time with Broderick Kleist from party to party while Mikyra left the country to continue her collections. It is rumored that Victor acquired an unusual face mask that is linked to the Giovanni during his stay in Italy.
In October of 2008, Victor created his second work of a Greek woman, who looked related to Victor, being kept by Hades. Shortly after his presentation, Martini was granted Acknowledgement and returned to the United States of America with encouragement from Broderick. Due to New York City being held by the Sabbat, Martini moved to New Orleans, LA to further his studies and integrate himself into the social network of Kindred Society. It is rumored that the women in the Greek statue was Victor's sister and that she lived in New Orleans.
Broderick Kleist arranged for Beau Cotter & Airis Mal to accompany Victor to New Orleans. During his time in New Orleans, Victor Martini spent most of his time researching and attempting to fix the backwards political system of the Louisiana Hegemony along with educating citizens the meaning of status and prestation, while supporting the safety and entertainment of Elysium through his coterie. Victor quickly earned the respect of its citizens and due to the machinations of Prince Mandeville served both as Harpy & Primogen of New Orleans. Despite his couth relationship with Mandeville, Martini has openly questioned the humanity of Prince Mandeville for he breathed constant Camarilla deaths through his rulings. With loss spiraling around him, Victor moved to Atlanta, GA in hopes to regain his artistic inspirations. It is rumored that Prince Mandeville threaten to kill Victor and broke prestation with Victor which caused Martini to move.
Since Victor has been in Atlanta, GA, he has been a Lesser Harpy and been highly involved with his artistic endeavors for clan Toreador. Victor has been seen spending a lot of time with David Blanchett, Rachel Dubhan, and Lilyanna Salvatore. Martini was recognized by Katherine de Montpellier for the elaborate decor during Prince Villon's Fete and was seated among them. It is rumored that Victor is still being haunted by death.
July 30, 2011, Victor Martini and Michael Remy were to be wed. "Death" murdered Remy on the alter which sent Victor into 'torpor' temporarily. Victor has not been the same since. . .
Current News: Victor has been working with other Toreador on the infernal & uninvited issues.
