Personal Information

Appearance

Nyx looks like a shimmering relic of the 1980s, complete with fluro pants and psychedelic tops. He's tall and muscular, with what looks to be a perpetual smirk embedded on his face.

Personality

Nyx is friendly and approachable, albeit with a paternalistic superiority complex. He's always making light-hearted jokes, with the devil-may-care attitude that any night could be his last.

He presents as suicidal, running headlong into danger and staying there as long as possible. And yet he's lasted this long, so there must be more to this fiery thrillseeker who seemingly lacks any agenda of his own.

Mortal World

Nyx is engaged with the mortal world, but in a domineering kind of way as gang leader, street dealer etc. As a drug-taking solider in Vietnam, he was already losing it a bit at the time of his embrace. While still connected to his humanity, Nyx sees mortals as inherently weaker and lower down on the food chain - as valued pets & companions at best, straight up food for most.

Information Known by Kindred Society

The Fallen (aka Tinder and the left swipes)

Nyx is a member of the Fallen, a coterie led by JJ, operating with his child Yama as the group's principle physical protector and scout.

Known members

  • JJ
  • Nyx
  • Yama
  • Kali
  • Karl

Mortal coterie members

Blackbloods

Nyx is in charge of a bikie gang called 'Blackbloods' that he took over in Perth after the destruction of the previous kindred and capture of its former leader.

Family

Nyx has two childer currently at court: Yama, a fellow Carthian, and Hachi of the Invictus.

Status

Is currently Acknowledged in the court.

He has faced down many threats to the city that would have left other kindred as ash. Yet this same fact gives him the attitude of not giving a damn what the powers that be expect of him - Nyx does his bit for the city by saving their undead hides; he's not going to lick their boots as well.
