Giorgo Giovanni (NPC, adoptable)
Owned by: Cindy
Age: 85, 30 at time of embrace
Game: Vampire the Masquerade in New Orleans
Job/Skills/PowersLanguages: Italian, English
Loyalty: All Giovanni are loyal to their own but Giorgo's loyalty extends to those that help him or his clan. It is part of who he is. He will never go against his own clan but he is, maybe, the one most likely to try to help someone escape who's helped him. (He is blood bonded to Mario so minus anything dealing with that.)
Business knowledge: No surprise, he has been trained to be good at business while it never has come as easy to him as it has to Angelica, he also does have the ability to learn it. He runs the riverboat casino Mario owns.
Computers: He has studied computers more than anyone else in the clan therefore he is their go-to computer person for some things.
Magic Resistance: He is naturally more resistant to the spells and rituals of the Tremere. He may never learn Thaumaturgy. This difficulty works both on good and bad effects.
Necromancy: (advanced) Necromancy: is a form of blood magic that deals exclusively with the world of the dead.
Potence: ( advanced)Grants Vampires supernatural strength.
Dominate: (advanced) overwhelms another person's mind with the vampire's will, forcing victims to think or act according to the vampire's decree
ClanNicknames: Giovanotti, Necromancers, Nigrimancers, the Young Ones, Necro-incestuous Mafioso, Romans
The Giovanni are the usurpers of clan Cappadocian and the youngest clan of Caine. Clan Giovanni is both a clan and a family. They Embrace exclusively within their family and are heavily focused on the goals of money and necromantic power.
In many ways, the Giovanni are a Ghoul Family with less visibly disgusting parts. This doesn't mean the Giovanni aren't as warped as the Bratovitch clan; the Giovanni are repulsive and degenerate in a more subtle manner. It is said that younger generations of the Giovanni were found to be very attractive. Some even say they put on the irresistible look of a succubi pre-change. Also, some are known to be shape-shifters.
The sadism and weirdness of Giovanni internal culture is enhanced by its incestuous nature. Giovanni can spend the majority of their lives interacting with nobody except other Giovanni, and the resulting insularity breeds additional problems. The Giovanni are, in particular, arrogant and prone to underestimating the world around them.
Like everything else in the family, the Embrace is a reward. Promotion for good service, and more than other clans, the Giovanni actively consider factors like generation in the Embrace. Being Embraced by a lower-generation clan member is considered a performance bonus.
While not uncommon, it is frowned upon to Embrace another of your own mortal family. This would encourage nepotism, and Giovanni much prefer to have the loyalty of their Neonates as divided as possible within the family.
WeaknessThe clan weakness of Giovanni dictate that when a Giovanni bites a living being, they deal more damage than normal, making it difficult to keep people alive after feeding from them.
Allergy: He is allergic to gold. He has a mild reaction upon touching gold but a more series reaction if he drinks the blood of someone who's ingested blood. (Think gold flake put into drinks and on food.)
Bounded: He's blood bounded to Mario.
Haunted: He is haunted by a spirit that only he (and mediums) can see. This spirit can cause havoc or, at least, minor inconveniences when it feels like it.
Physical Appearance6'2" dark hair, blue eyes
Personality and interestsGiorgio is a fairly personable guy, for Giovanni. He has little issues attracting women and uses that to his advantage every chance he gets. He and Angelica do have a decent relationship and he respects her opinion, not just because he kind of has to, but because he knows that she is very knowledgeable in many different areas. He loves going to nightclubs and when not at the riverboat he will be seen at other night hot spots.
His interests are women, computers, hot spots, and did I say, women?
He has ghouls that are always women and only one at a time, Mario only gives him permission for that many.
HistoryOnce Mario had sired his first two he spent some time looking for who would be his next one. Several decades actually. He met Giorgio as a young boy and waited. Giorgio grew up, got married, he and his wife tried having children several times but nothing came of it. He was working in the business (mortal) in the family and Mario was keeping an eye on him. When Giorgio's wife died and he hadn't produced any offspring, Mario took him.
Favourite Sayings"We can work with you"
