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.
WeaknessGiovanotti, Necromancers, Nigrimancers, the Young Ones, Necro-incestuous Mafioso, Romans
Bounded: He's blood bonded to Mario.
Enemy: He's made a few enemies in his short time as a vampire. It's just part of the job.
Infertile Blood: (Unaware to anyone because he hasn't tried to sire.) His blood does not carry with it the mystical properties required to pass along disciplines, or the ability to sire. This is usually kept as a carefully guarded secret because it has a large social stigma to it.
Physical Appearance6'8" muscular. Dark hair, dark eyes, usually has facial hair. He basically looks like the kind of guy you don't want to mess with.
Personality and interestsMario is quiet, doesn't speak much even in private. He trusts no one, completely, outside his own clan.
He very good at what he does and that is to protect other Giovanni, primarly Mario and a close second is Angelica. (Actually, that might be backward because he's been told by Mario to protect Angelica before him.)
Mario is extremely tough on Guiseppe. No need to go into everything that's been done to him but he has been taught to withstand things like torture, "for the good of the clan" or at least that's what Mario has told him.
Outside of protecting the clan, he has little other interests. He likes learning new things but they are only things used to protect the clan.
Mario doesn't allow Guiseppe to ghoul anyone.
HistoryGuiseppe came into being a vampire because Mario needed a bodyguard. His last one had been killed and he simply needed a new one from inside the family because he didn't trust anyone from another clan enough to hire them. Guiseppe had been in the Italian military for a few years but had recently gotten out before being embraced.
