Baldovin Kallikrates Narvaés
Current year 50 BC
Total Age: 63
Born in the year of 113 BC Baldovin was raised on the streets more or less of Utica until he was of recruit able age for the armies. Rising in the ranks he outperformed the expectations of his instructors within a short period of time 12-15. He was placed in charge of a unit which went on to fight in various skirmishes throughout the lands for the wars between Carthage and Rome between 15 and 26. Crushing rebel scum up and down the coasts and capturing small territories the band made a name for themselves in the war. He had a high success rate (97%) earning him much renown in the war efforts whilst retaining most of the conquered lands in his conquests and minimising loss of life for the Carthage side whenever he was involved in battle.
Towards the end of his campaigns he was assigned to drill up martial forces to higher competent standards of combat and to prepare them for the real skirmishes yet to come. After several years of training recruits into warriors and (in the cases of a few) heroes, Baldovin was approached by a mysterious benefactor.
He was told a tale of mystery and intrigue and offered a chance to be great again, fighting where it counted in the favour of Carthage. Eager for the chance to return to conquest… and ‘conquest’ Baldovin accepted. He found himself turned into a creature of the night, one of the Kindred.
For many years he was rendered back to being a watchful servant and ward to his sire as he learned the ways of the Kindred and their secrecy. He was also being taught that unlike the brute yet skilful force he had applied in his military career that there were other ways, subtler ways to turn the tides of war.
He turned his focus from the core of the war to the edges and the politics of the enemy factions and through his new knowledge and also application of skills granted by being learned in the secret ways of the Kindred he was joined in the militarised Vampiric police force known as The Sacred Blood.
The Sacred Blood was assigned to tasks which the Prince of Carthage desired to be kept secret and also independent from the main workings of the immortal political workings. The Sacred Blood was created to operate purely under the prince’s purview whist also remaining an autonomous entity with its own agenda in the operations of the mortal world and also the eternal power struggle of Kindred politics.
Baldovin was chosen to operate in The Sacred Blood in order to temper his subtlety whilst also being a prominent strong arm for the group.
