Danny was born several minutes past midnight on January 1st at a free clinic in one of the poorest areas of San Francisco and was given up sight unseen at birth by his mother; his Bernard Smith name was given by the staff in accordance with policy for such cases (a "B" name for second newborn that day). He spent many years in the foster care system and while never enduring the horrors many orphans did, he also never felt attached or close to anyone. He observed that while hard work and dedication could lead to success, the path was much easier for those who had many people they could call on for favors and support. So he set about learning to be a social chameleon, with a gregarious nature and ability to empathize and ingratiate himself into most situations, groups, sub-cultures or social circles.
Using this ability to easily integrate himself into a wide-ranging set of groups Danny cultivates a vast network of friends, contacts, acquaintances and clients as he goes.
Danny changed his name as soon as he achieved legal adulthood, basing his new name on that of colonial alchemist Samuel Danforth.
While his stake in the funeral home is fairly public knowledge, known only to a very select few is that he owns the gentlemen's smoking establishment he frequents with clients. He has hidden this information by creating a fictitious absentee owner and installing a highly loyal mundane as manager. In addition to using the club to meet clients and schmooze, he also uses very discreet surveillance to obtain information about the members and their guests.Reputation :
Danny is welcome almost everywhere and because of this he is able to move more freely than most between the various Orders, often acting as a neutral broker, mediator, or facilitator making introductions, smoothing things over or acquiring and selling various bits of information and items.
In addition, Danny using his talents in the paths of Matter, Life and Death, he also provides discreet services creating documents, altering appearances or providing treatments to a client's health and well-being. To desperate mundanes, he is someone in the shadows who is able to obtain unheard of, highly experimental drugs and medicines to treat difficult or unusual conditions and illnesses.
Danny has a reputation for maintaining confidences, discretion and upholding the deals he makes, never dealing in bad faith. However, in his eyes any information he uncovers about a client not strictly covered by any agreement/deal is fair game to be utilized for his purposes.
While he often performs his services to benefit the greater good,to foster good-will or establish connections, Danny is also capable of exacting costly payments from his clients; be they in the form of currency, favors or some other sacrifice.
He never uses his information or resources to force someone to do something against their will, however Danny does often present difficult choices as part of his payment, sometimes leading to his clients 'consenting' to activities they would never had chosen to participate in otherwise.
Along with another Mage he is co-owner of a prestigious funeral home in the area and although seldom involved in the day-to-day activities, he often works out of the offices, occasionally meeting contacts and clients there. More often he is out and about the city gathering his intel and maintaining his relationships wherever and however he needs to.
Another favorite haunt of Danny's, especially for clientle with more high-brow tastes, is a gentlemen's smoking club which serves high-end cigars, liquors and extreme privacy.Sexuality :
