Name: Connall Delaney
Actual Age: 787
Apparent Age: 26
Powers: As a vampire of impressive age Connall is immensely strong and fast, has had centuries to perfect his glamour, and of course knows how to use the power of his bite to the greatest effect.
Skills: Unlike other vampires who reach a certain age Connall has made a point of staying up to date on technology. While he is hardly a hacker, he is computer savvy and knows how to cover his tracks. He true talent lies in the duel areas of warfare and politics though, years of experience with both have helped him develop the talents that a vampire needs if they are to survive to a great age.
Personality: Connall possesses what some would call a dominant personality, he always knows what it was that he wants and is willing to do whatever it takes to get it, anyone who stands in his way will soon find themselves up against a threat that is hard to imagine. He is perfectly capable of being subtle when it is called for though, direct action might not all ways work and he is more then happy to be indirect.
Brief History: When Connall was young life was simple, he belonged to a moderate sized Celtic clan in what is modern day Britain. Warfare was common between the tribes as they constantly struggled to demonstrate which was superior. However around the time he reached the prime of his life things were changing. The Normans controlled large amounts of land and had of the Lord of Ireland, giving them a very firm control indeed. But not all of those who were descended of the original peoples in Ireland were content with this and Connall was from a clan that enjoyed making trouble whenever they could. Frequently they would ambush patrols along the trade routes that had been established, doing little initial damage but quickly disrupting things.
However alone the clan could never hope to change things and as Connall grew older he wanted to enforce "the proper order of things." Seeking the power to drive away the Norman's he listened to Clan lore and set out to track down a woman said to live in a cave on the northern most tip of Ireland, a place that men who wanted to live would avoid but those who craved power could go to in the hopes of a boon. At the cave there were men who could took the shape of wolves, guarding the woman who ruled them and driving away the unworthy. Connall was undaunted though, with sword, spear, and eventually his bare hands he fought his way to the mouth of the cave where he collapse, bleeding from a score of wounds.
He awoke the next night, coughing up the dirt from the gave, embraced by the woman of the cave. He soon left Ireland with her, she had greater things on her mind then the Normans and they set out across Europe, leaving a trail of blood in his wake as he learned the lessons that had to be learned. He had been born a Mortal but he had been elevated now, to a creature that had the power that could not be over come...
In recent years he has come in contact with the Sanguanista movement, while not wholly buying into the spiritual aspect of their teachings he is very much in favor of a vampire dominated world.
