Shadow of a Horned God
Brennus, also called “The Barbarian” is a Scion of Clan Ventrue and the childe of Coramius. He is an accomplished Elder, Embraced during his sire’s travels through Europe. Originally from Celtic stock, Brennus accompanied his sire for a while before growing weary and wishing to gain glory for himself. He settled in the region of Helvetia where he crafted a domain of his own and thrived in the face of internal turmoil in the Empire.
He was forced to leave his domain in the mid-5th century, when the vast hordes of Goths swept through Europe on it’s way to swallow the Empire. In the company of his childe, Bodwyinn, he arrived in Britannia to seek out the company of his “relatives”. As he arrived in Eboracum, he quickly found out that Claudius Fulvo, his younger “brother” was slain since two centuries and his childe, Erilos Gallo died only a few decades ago at the fangs and claws of Lupine invaders, creating an opening for the office of Prince in the city. An opportunity which Brennus wasn’t slow to utilize.
In AD 616, he still holds this position, albeit he is rapidly growing wary and tired of the constant threats to his domain. His lack of initiative in the face of “barbarian” uprising in the north have greatly reduced his status, and some even believe him to be in collusion with Savages from Bernicia. What the future holds for this elder remains yet to be seen.
