Ghoul is a term used to describe a minion created when a vampire gives a bit of vampiric vitae to a mortal without draining him or her of blood first (which would create another vampire instead).
Powers and Abilities
As long as a ghoul has vitae in his body, he does not age. If the ghoul cannot get his monthly feeding, he will slowly lose the vitae and the powers that come with it - including catching up with the years. A ghoul without vitae reverts quickly to his real age, and those who have far outlived a mortal life span rapidly turn to dust.
Feed just about any living creature a little vampire blood and it becomes a Ghoul, at least temporarily. In VTM, ghouls are omnipresent servants, easily created, and heavily abused - although networks do exist to assist them in escaping their masters. A ghoul’s emotions run to extremes with the heady drug of vitae in his veins — such a creature often falls prey to great rages and disturbing cravings. The name “ghouls” was not chosen at random.
These creatures are created when a vampire feeds his vitae to another creature. Mechanically, this vitae is treated as a single point - for one lunar month, the ghoul has a point of vampiric blood in his system and acquires all the benefits (and drawbacks) of ghouling. Ghouls can hold multiple blood points in their system, but if they try to hold more than a human capacity, it has unpleasant side effects until the vitae replaces their normal blood. As long as a ghoul has vitae in his system, he remains a ghoul: vitae is lost at the rate of one point per month, and when used to power Disciplines. While a ghoul has blood in his system, he will not age.
Animals can also be ghouled, a tactic particularly favored by the Nosferatu. Animal ghouls tend to grow larger and mutate, the result being a somewhat horrifying parody of the original creature. In addition, almost all ghouled animals develop a taste for blood, regardless of their original diets.
WeaknessGhouls are prone to frenzy, although not as strongly as a vampire, but do experience provocation for frenzy more often. In addition, they are addicted to vitae - apart from the deleterious effects of the blood bond, Ghouls are subject to horrible side effects when the supply dries up. Without vitae, a ghoul will rapidly age physically to his actual chronological age, and ghouls over a century will crumble to dust quickly.
Ghouls are addicted to blood, and the control of blood is the primary way that ghouls are managed by their domitors — in addition to more traditional techniques like Dominate. The nastiest part of being a ghoul, of course, is that one is a slave to an inhuman monster that treats humans as chesspieces or the occasional light snack.
Physical Appearance6'3" physically fit
Personality and interestsHarold enjoys being physically fit. He exercises, shoots guns, driving and piloting are what he enjoys doing.
HistoryHarold was given everything in life. If he wanted it he was able to just ask and his parents or someone in his family would buy it for him. That made him extremely spoiled and as he grew up his spoiled attitude went with him. He went from a spoiled child to an spoiled adult who expected everything to be handed to him and it was. His parents introduced him to girl after girl, who he used and then dumped without any real concerns for them. That was until he meant Lillian without much thought he decided he wanted to be with her. She ghouled him because he was even more spoiled than she was and he was annoying but also attractive, she wanted him to be hers and to control him. His parents died a few years later, surprised, but not questioning the change in their son.
