Lord of the Castle (Thomas, Garrett)

Post#1 » February 6th, 2016, 4:54 pm

They had been in contact with their various Covenants and told that when they arrived in New York they were to report to the Seneschal and Ventrue Priscus Charles Pelham (Earl Pelham to Thomas).

They were to meet this fine, upstanding Lord at his Manor on Staten Island.

The building was as close to a castle as New York offered. Spiked iron fencing separated the stone three story mansion from the green space around it.

There was a gate with a pair of security staff. When each individual presented themselves a call was made to the house to make sure that they were expected.

Thomas admired the location as well as the show case of Power and Style it posed. What is more Traditional than a castle, and what else is as Symbolic for strength? He patiently waited to be told where to go and in the meantime inspected his follow Ventrue. He introduced himself with a welcoming smile and the words "Ah, good evening! I am Mister Richter. It is a pleasure to meet you..?", trailing off to let him finish the sentence.

"Garret Ware. Pleasures mine Mister Richter " He holds out his hand for a shake, a winning but slightly dorky smile gracing his lips. "Call me Ret if the full names too fancy for me." What strikes you is his voice is stilted slightly, a little over dramatic, like an old timey actor mixed with a southern accent.

He is dressed "up" in what appears to be a nice graphic tee, some thick metal chains with a Cross on it, and a nicer looking pair of jeans. He also appears to be at oldest 21. A pair of tattoos peek out from his shirt, black and intricate from what you can see. Fancy indeed.

Since they have not been called on, they engaged in some smalltalk. The difference in attire was great, since Thomas wore a suit embroidered with dark purple and golden handcuffs. He seriously doubted that Garrett was with the Invictus. But Thomas knew that being corteous and polite was always a good strategy. And getting to know fellow kindred always paid off. "Please excuse my asking, but are you a long term Citizen or are you New to the Domain?"

The pair were shown into the manor and then into a private waiting room with leather seats.

Taking a seat next to him, Thomas answered "Oh, very much the same, I believe." Of course, their opinion on what "making it my home" actually means probably differed by a large margin.
"So tell me, where are you from, and what made you come to NY?"

If he considered anything odd about the answer, it did not Register on his face. "Ah, a good ear for languages! Close, actually, as while I am from Miami, my family is indeed rooted in Germany." He flashed a winning smile while he accompanied his words with hand gestures.
"So, your family ownes property. You were in the agricultural Business then, I take it?"

Interesting. "Oh, I was, and to a certain extend, still am, a banker." He considered what was said. "You said 'your family'. What did you yourself do in your Mortal days?"

An understanding nod was offered."I can See how that might pose a problem." He was silently for a heartbeat.

A small alarm siren went off in Thomas' head."Ah, That sounds indeed like a fruitful endeavour. May I ask what kind of films you shoot?"
