"I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: "O Lord make my enemies ridiculous." And God granted it." ► Voltaire

"I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me." ► Hunter S. Thompson

“Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires.” ► Shakespeare, Macbeth

"Rudeness is the weak man's imitation of strength." ► Eric Hoffer


"If you pretend to be good, the world takes you very seriously. If you pretend to be bad, it doesn't. Such is the astounding stupidity of optimism."

"I choose my friends for their good conversations, my acquaintances for their good characters, and my enemies for their good intellects. One cannot be too careful in the choice of enemies."

"No object is so beautiful that, under certain conditions, it will not look ugly."

Fear and hope have a relationship akin to fire and air. Without any hope, fear flickers out. With too much hope, it blows out. But with just enough, just a tiny breeze, it grows and grows...

RP Hooks
Crime - Alejandro's name is known in more then a few circles.

Teatro di Sofferenza - The original BDSM club in town. If you're into that sort of thing, Apone owns it. (Hidden Meadows)

Finder and Fixer - If you need it, you know what it means.

Cults - Alejandri is always looking for new converts for his cult. Want ties to influential people that also swear their loyalty to our dark God?

Corruption - Ok, not so much corruption as liberation. Society tells us alot of what we can't do. Mental blocks placed on people by the order of society from a very young age, deciding what behavior is acceptable, and what isn't; removing any form of free will people are born with. What's worse, most people can't even acknoweldge that this is what happens. If you want to be truly free, maybe we can work something out.

Via Corp Holdings -Currently Alejandro Sotolongo leads as the head of operations a major security division called Eclipse Security, a multi-billion dollar entertainment corporation called Myopic Media, and a telecommunications corporation called Nexus Communications. Eclipse Security deals with all different sorts of security from the government, business, infosec, and housing. Eclipse Security is also known for doing contracting as far as mercenary works go either private or otherwise as well as offers training for such. Myopic Media on the other hand deals in all different kinds of entertainment... both legal and otherwise, though the latter isn't publicly known. Anything from theme parks to theatres, restaurants, clubs, television, radio, games, and the like, Myopic Media is where it's at.

Intoxication - Got a thirst for blood, yet miss what an old fashioned hangover is like? Or maybe you want to sit around with some friends and drink a few beers without having to worry about trying to hold it down long enough to not ruin the mood. I got just the thing for you.

Stereotypes and Associates
Aubrey- Beware the patient woman. [A Little Wicked]

Khalid- Burn it all down, Khal. [Techno Viking - Dance with the Devil]

Laura- Little Sister, where have you gone? [Cry Little Sister]

Hedone- Your cult may not align with mine and the city's completely, but I recognize your gifts Sister. Stand with me to lead the faithful. [Maiden, Mother, & Crone]

Bishop- Won't you come with me and walk this land? [In The Garden of Eden (IN A GADDA DA VIDA)]

Silvana- You're the fun kinda trouble. [Trouble]

Amelie- The Voice of an Angel, and the heart of a new born babe. [The Sounds of Silence]

Vegard- You may be the biggest fish in the pond, but I'm a whole other animal entirely. [Bow Down Before The One You Serve]

Heathen- So easy upset. That temper will be the death of you child. [Friends on the Other Side]

Mikael- More worthy of the blood then most of those in this domain that have it. Pity. [Who Wants To Live Forever?]

Cedric- The lone Usurper to survive the wrath of one of Madeline's pet rocks; now fancies himself something special. Do you believe you can do your little trick before I can do mine? [Playing With the Big Boys Now]

Madeline- Queen Bee. Close friends once. Maybe more, had time unfolded differently. Se la vi. [That Type-O Negative song]

The Tower - Mice pretending to be men. Boisterous when they feel they have the advantage. Quick to scurry back into their bolt holes when they realize they don't.

The Sword - Mice pretending to be monsters. The same applies to them as does the Tower, only their less likely to accurately judge when they don't infact have the advantage.

The Anarchs - You are so close to realizing the truth of the world, so close to opening your eyes....and then you tie the blindfold yourself.

The Ravnos - They have preferred customer status for a reason. Always good to see a gypsy walk in the door.

The Giovanni - What can I possibly say about the Giovanni that others would believe? We have so much in common. The circles we keep in society. The wealth and knowledge that we horde. Our devotion to our founder. The pleasure that comes from profiting from the foolishness of others. No wonder we get along so very well.

The Assamites - The diablarie clan. The amaranth rose. Have you forsaken all of your freedom to serve at the feet of the Tower now? Do you even deserve notice above the collective that is the Tower? Probably not.

White Hats - No offense intended, but if you consider yourself a 'White' Hat character that thinks the same moral code which says it's wrong for someone to feed just to survive also justifies you murdering them for it, or that somehow you have moral authority over anyone other then yourself and get to run around acting like a full blown sociopath when it's convenient and a normal functioning human being when it's not; chances are I'll just not be all that interested in RPing with you. It's the World of Darkness. Monsters are real. Bad things happen. Both those bad things, and your response to those bad things will have lasting effects on you. If you don't want to RP that out, then don't take part in that kind of RP. The sword cuts both ways.
