My Story.My original name was Louis Marcelin. I know go by Louise Marcelin Brennus. I was born in 1791 in Mauritius, France. I still keep the first name Louis although I have assumed over a half dozen different human names since 1817; when I taken against my will and for lack of a better word died, and was then reborn. I am what many would refer to as one of the undead, a vampire. I was made against my will by a trouble vampire named Nicholas la Costa. Nickolas was very young at the time, just 30 years old. (When I give ages, it will be the age from when the person died and the vampire was born.) Nickolas was not approved to make me. In the end Nickolas was punished, and I never really got to know Nickolas very well. Nickolas would drift in and out of the area from time to time. Nickolas was a troubled being, but that would be his story, not mine. I believe Nickolas has been extinguished, because I have not felt him in almost 100 years.
At the time, I knew nothing, but I was taken in and raised by Aed (pronounced Aoed) Brennus. He was the oldest of the vampires in our region. Aed considered himself responsible for Nickolas, because Nickolas was a member of his clan. Aed was not Nickolas’s maker, but nevertheless for my sake, he took responsibility for me. He took me alonge with about 2/3 of the clan with him to the New World in 1819. I always thought it funny, that he was not a King in the New World, yet he was 600 years older and much stronger than our king, Brian Drustan. Brian has been a good king, and I know he seeks private counsel from Aed. However it is very discreet and Aed seems to always support Brian. I don’t really know there story. Brian was made a king in the new world almost 300 years before I was born. Vampires came to the new world in 1460 after the Nordic traders first sent back word of the new world.
Aed is perhaps the most patient being I have ever encountered. Aed, is around 2220 years old, he is one of the 5 oldest vampires in the new world. While on a business trip to Rome in 1974, as a part of Aed’s entourage, I was able to briefly meet three Vampires that were among the oldest of our kind.. Vampires that are so old they remember the world in ages not years. Someone may know, exactly how old they were, I asked one of their attendants, and it was brushed off as impolite. I can only guess that they are thousands of years old. I believe Aahmas is Egyptian and she could be five or six thousand years old. I don’t know to what extent the depths of their power reaches. I know Aed is still getting stronger and faster as he ages, I can only assume these “Ancient Ones” are also.
We only met them for few minutes, most likely out of their respect for Aed. The “ancient ones”) don’t have much patience for anyone less than 2000 years old, and they look upon anyone under 1000 years as a mere child that does not understand life, death, or for that matter immortality. I am not passing comment, just stating the fact. I believe in my 194 years I have learned a tremendous amount. I suppose just as in any society there are forms of discrimination, and in our society it is ba
It’s funny, young vampires like myself all sheer our lineage and no one really hides where or when they were made, or who their maker is or was, but the really old vampires, and the ancient ones guard that information like it’s matter of national security. I know when to be quiet and let sleeping bats lie.
