WELCOME TO DOUBLE VISION. WE'RE A SUPERNATURAL ROLE PLAY SET IN THE MODERN NIGHTS IN THE SUNNY STATE OF CALIFORNIA AND OUR LORE FOLLOWS THE RULES ESTABLISHED IN WHITE WOLF'S WORLD OF DARKNESS UNIVERSE. WHEN FIRST REGISTERING ON THE SITE PLEASE DO SO WITH A OOC ACCOUNT ALL IN CAPITALS.
DOMINATE: Dominate is a Discipline that overwhelms another person's mind with the vampire's will, forcing victims to think or act according to the vampire's decree.
FORTITUDE: Fortitude is a Discipline that grants Kindred unearthly toughness, even to the point of resisting fire and sunlight.
PRESENCE: Presence is the Discipline of supernatural allure and emotional manipulation which allows Kindred to attract, sway and control crowds.
FEEDING RESTRICTION: Because of his clan weakness Lacroix's feeding preference solidified itself because of his past in Napoleon's army. He's only able to stomach the blood of those who have served their country.
Although shamelessly pompous, wrathful and unscrupulous, Lacroix does have his moments of humility. It is to be debated whether his intentions were to acquire the sarcophagus from the very detection of it's arrival, or if he became caught up in the paranoia gripping the city's other residents and sought it in hopes of presumably diablerizing the inhabitant before someone else did. Regardless, he is a complex indiviual that many kindred "love to hate" for his wily ways. Although self assured and determined, he is still young by vampire standards (the Tremere primogen has called him "neonate" on more than one occasion since he took his position of Prince) and his naivete in respect to the sarcophagus resulted in what might have been a last grab to secure himself in the game of survival that all Kindred are caught up in, being that there is relatively little opportunity for younger Ventrue in the Final Nights.
Although his actions can be cruel and manipulative especially to the newly changed children that have suddenly popped up in his city, one might concede that he owes no allegiance to any of these forgotten children or their sire to begin with, especially if said sire was possibly aligned against him and the player character would surely(in his mind) seek retribution for their sire's death. Lacroix is an example of a survival driven person that chooses to err on the side of unscrupulousness in order to ensure his desired path of one suited to politics and leadership. Being that all Kindred are by nature feral and prone to loss of humanity, his characterization as "villain" is debatable, although he certainly proves to be insufferable enough to receive such a title.
Born in Calais, France, LaCroix ascended in the ranks of Napoleon's army until, presumably in his early twenties, he was embraced by a Belgian Ventrue nobleman. He climbed through the Camarilla's ranks, having several charges in France and England before becoming Prince in Los Angeles in 2004. He is head of the LaCroix Foundation, and resides in the Venture Tower in downtown Los Angeles, commanding the city from his penthouse office.
By Camarilla tradition, he is the prince of all Kindred within his domain, though few acknowledge his authority. According to the anarchs of Los Angeles, LaCroix's position in vampire society was not earned naturally but by other means; additionally, they believe that the Camarilla's laws cannot be applied to them by the prince, seeing as they are free.
