History: Marcus Shaw was a well respected doctor of the 16th century in Paris, skilled in the latest of medical technology and know-how, that was until his 26th birthday. Out with a wealthy friend of his for a celebration they were attacked by a monster of a woman. His friend was the first to fall to the woman's blood lust and she quickly turned on him. Always the one to have a knife he struck her in the throat hoping to kill what he thought was a demon possessed lady, horrified he watched as the wound closed itself and she laughed. As she latched onto his neck and as he felt his life leaving him he stabbed at her torso repeatedly hoping to no end that she would stop, once he was too weak to do anything against her she dropped him.
The next thing in his memory is becoming a vampire, the horrific pain, and wonderful high of drinking blood for the first time. He spent the next 50 years under the care and command of his master, Mistress Laelia, she was his world. Under her tutelage he learned how to fight and command, care and kill. She would often go away to meet with the Counsel whom he was never allowed to see. He was unaware that she had been raising him to take her place, after 2,000 years she was ready to move on.
On their 50th anniversary together she took him to meet the Counsel. He was forced to take on the blood of all members and absorb his master Laelia killing her in the process. Having taken in all of Laelia's memories and becoming the newest member of those ruling all of vampire kind, The Counsel, was beyond his wildest imagination. The knowledge he possessed was mind blowing not to mention the unique ability that Laelia had passed on to him, the ability to project ones will into another. She had received everything from her master just like he had, just like all 6 Counsel members had. This was the beginning of a new life for him.
