A vampire trapped in the Victorian Era who loves the blues. Athanasius Theophylaktos (often shortened to Thanos) was a man who worked for a wine-press before an elder vampire of the Yagnatia Nosferatu bloodline grew to fancy him and eventually turn him. Athanasius then in a blood frenzy killed his wife and daughter, which left him distraught once he came to his senses. The grief from his loss and angst over his new condition lead him down dark paths, where he eventually found and joined the Belial's Brood, where he learned not only to accept but revel in his nature as a vampire. This quickly escalated into the desire to become *more* than a vampire, but a demon in its own right. Through the study of the nature of souls and mastery over the powers of sin, Athanasius eventually found the Strix and was subsumed by one of their numbers. Now he exists as a true monster with absolute hatred for the living.
