I have every expectation of my character delightfully clashing with Red's. >_>
Edit: oh and Jaded's, due to the religious angle. ^^;
Anyways, if edits are required, just say the word.

Cold, dutiful, arrogant, does not suffer fools lightly, hateful towards religion, but intellectual, enjoys debate, deeply curious, and honorable to a fault.History:
Václav never had a normal life. He had the fortune (or perhaps misfortune) to be born as a descendant of the Rurik dynasty in the Kievan Rus area. His family was a minor offshoot, never meant to ever acquire a princedom. Václav was the fourth son of his family, and he never stood to inherit anything at all...and worse, he was born sickly. It was expected he would die before adulthood, so he was allowed significant freedom, which he used to hone his natural intellect, studying any language he could acquire a teacher for and other skills that he felt would be helpful. On his twenty-third birthday and during a time of great illness, Václav drew the attention of a powerful Kindred of Novgorod, who decided to ghoul him and groom him for the Embrace.
Václav knew the attentions of this Kindred were...unnatural, but long years of illness had left Václav with no more faith in God, and so instead he put his faith in this stranger. He was not disappointed. Ghouling made for an immense difference in his life. Václav found, for the first time in his existence, that he could go forth from his family estate and play at swords as other men did. The Kindred who ghouled him, a powerful Tzimisce named Bor, knew that his charge's body needed to be as fit as his mind, and to that purpose spent considerable money training him in combat. Soon enough, he left religion and gave all of his devotion and duty to Bor.
And Bor gave him the stuff of nightmares, training Václav in the art of the human body, showing him how it was constructed. It was not a true
study of medicine, but anatomy and its workings.
On his thirtieth birthday, Václav was Embraced. He left behind much of his mortal ties, hitching his fortunes to his Sire's. He is grateful for the Embrace; he knows it would have only been a matter of time until some foul vapor or chill would have taken his life, and to be a Kindred is beyond all his hopes, even if this means he is Damned. He is=s to act as his Sire's hands and ears, to act as a knight for him and to uphold Clan Tzimisce's honor. He's served faithfully now for twenty years, and his Sire has promised Václav that he'll be given more trust in the Clan and trusted with more responsibility if he is successful in Bistrița sorting out things, ideally in favor of Daecaneus, whom Bor is indebted to, although the reasons for that debt have not been disclosed to Václav.
In short, he was a very physically ill man turned into a trained & monstrous killer...albeit an honorable and quite dutiful one. For Václav, there is no sense of personal pleasure, only duty.Your O/Os for this character:
Honestly, my only Off for Václav is probably scat, but due to his demeanor, he's not likely to be going around sexin' things up. Just prod at me if you want to plan something with him.
