No known photograph exists.
He is the shadow in the shadow. No one truly knows what he looks like not even
his most trusted advisors as he either stays hidden or uses his magic to hide
his true form underneath the guise of a friendly one. But there are rumors.
Some say he is an emaciated skeleton, while others persist that he is a demon.
In actuality he has had many forms and he has used them in many ways.
His favored visage, like the one Gitanne Noblesse remembers is a relatively
handsome man in his late 30's. His true form? We may never know.
The Lord of Sorrows. Degenerate son
and unholy terror. He is a member of no family, belongs to no clan, an ally to
none and answers only to himself. He is the cruelest of the cruel and the
darkest of anything on this Earth, including the Chimaera. He is neither
demon, nor man, but somewhere in between. His powers rival that of Nicholas
Giovanni and the Feyan Courts combined. But unlike the ancient Kindred king,
he is not afraid to use them. He avoids daylight even though he is not kindred
and must eat the flesh of Chimera to sustain his artificially enhanced life
span. He is the spider in the web controlling all through his threads but
never actually appearing. Until lately as the apocalypse approaches plans that
have been in motion for centuries come to a head and the Lord of Sorrows may
find that he must take a more active hand in his plans.
The Past -
Little is know about the Lord of
Sorrows. It is rumored that he was once human. A man who delighted in
debauchery, violence and pain, he was feared by even the cruelest man and when
he turned to ‘darker’ means to get what he wanted he was feared even more so
and given the name, The Lord of Sorrows. The title could have been hereditary
for if it is not, the Lord would be between two–four thousand years old
depending on which ancient record one used. While this would not be impossible
for a Chimaera, none of the preternatural claim him as kin, as he is neither
were, kindred, witch or fae.
What is not known is that the Lord of Sorrows has been feeding off the Chimera
for centuries and he wishes the door to be opened. He uses Chimaera flesh and
blood to sustain his unnatural life. Once human he is now something else using
the Chimera blood to give him immortality and power. He wants the door open
since after centuries of over use the Chimera are beginning to lose the power
to keep him alive. He plans to kill all Chimera that stand in his way. The
open portal will bring new creatures for him to consume. With the Chimera out
of the way he see himself as the power behind the new order gaining the
gratitude of those he has let in.
His name is forgotten as is his past and he is the stuff of myths, legends and
nightmares. He has been around since the Realms were closed to one another.
Scheming always in the background happily controlling those who fool
themselves into believing that ‘they’ actually rule. He caused the creation of
almost every type of chaotic Chimaera that can be created or bound to kill the
more lawful Chimera so that an old ancient record would come to produce
results. In the past thousand years he has created an army, to kill those who
stand against him and threaten his plans. Whether his army knows they belong
to him remains to be seen.
He is the leader of an ancient religious, magic cult that has it roots in
biblical times. Magi, assassins, thieves, politicians they are the power
behind the power behind the throne. Called the Scarlet Brotherhood, they are
everywhere although very few have any hint of their existence. Dominic Diablo
has used them in the past, as have Roarke Bellemorte and Frost. As for the
rest of Chimaera society only hints and whispers nothing more. He is also the
man who ‘owned’ Gitanne Noblesse so many centuries ago and took their daughter
away from her to be raised in his own damned image. What became of the young
babe, no one knows but him.
Since the destruction of Club Muse, Sorrows has planted seeds within Gitanne.
He finds himself unable to take her life, but that does not mean he cannot take
her sanity...have her destroy herself and everything around her. His
spells have helped. Their daughter will help even further.
Be wary of this creature. He is your worst nightmare come true and if you
oppose him, get in his way or disobey him, you are finished.
