From City of Hope MUSH
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Caroline "Augusta" Landreau arrived in Prospect in March of 2020. She works as a procurer and evaluator for Landreau Galleries, a family owned antiquities trading company that's been around for nearly two hundred years. Based in NYC, they've recently begun work on a west coast location in Prospect, which is what brought her to the city.

She's also an Initiate Exemptus of the Order of Hermes and a member of House Tytalus, although the latter is perhaps an odd choice for someone with an obvious disability. Either beggars and ruined Houses can't be choosers, or she's more competent in a fight than she looks.

Landreau Galleries
While the company was founded in the 1840s, they don't advertise, and rely entirely on word of mouth among the wealthy collectors that are their clientele. They are a reputable company, and all of their goods come with the appropriate paperwork to prove their legality.

In reality, while the majority of that paperwork is legitimate, some is forged. This is kept very tightly under wraps, but individuals heavily involved in the black art and antiquities market might know of it.

The Landreau Family
The Landreaus are one of the few remaining Hermetic families. Founded in France in the late 1700s by Ignace Landreau bani Verditius, the family migrated to Quebec in the 1840s and has since spread out across New England. Not every member is a mage, far from it, but the family does consistently produce both linear and Awakened magi. Most go into House Verditius, using the family business to recover interesting artifacts and tomes that have landed in Sleeper hands, but a few have found other Houses more fitting.

The family is allegedly cursed due to something its founder did, and while most Landreaus do seem to have something wrong with them, they keep quiet about the details.

Balance: He seems reasonable, aside from his clear spiritual deficiencies.
Joel: Apparently he's telling the truth. This is troubling.
Marshall: An excellent welcome from a familiar face.
