His dominant personality is that of a Ventrue elder, called David, who was embraced in the 18th century, in Florence. David is a hot headed, art collector with a penchant for militaria. He also used to own the first bank in Florence (obviously he doesnt now). When playing David, play him as a very millitary character. Second on the list is Marc D'Ambron, a french Brujah with extensive knowledge of the Calais of the fourteenth century, when he helped in the war against the Black Prince. Marc is aggressive and forceful, with a habit of shouting instead of talking (he is nearly deaf). Lastly is Octavian. This personality rarely surfaces, since it is the oldest of them all. It is this one that is truly 'him'. When playing Octavian he rarely speaks, or if he does it is in Latin only. He has the terrible secret that he ate his sire in 349AD, then instantly regretted it, and went into Torpor. He is still aggressive though when in this personality. He has only been awake for fifty years, the rest of his unlife has been spent in torpor, each time he awakens he develops a new personality from a different clan, but this time he has stayed in his last incarnation as David. His crime of Diabliere was committed so long ago, he probably is the only one who remembers it with any clarity. The chances of him slipping out of David are 1 in 50, and then the split goes Marc - 5/10 Octavian 2/10 David again 3/10. As stated before, all of his personalities know of one another, but not that they are the same. While in a personality, he will only increase disciplines that are from that clan, and put the others he has knowledge of down to experience, and try not to use them too often.
