Nashville After Dark

Nashville Main


The Ventrue Clan once held great power in Nashville, until Wyatt Hamilton arrived and took over. In the years since his death they struggled to regain their power and finally set upon a course of action both the primogen and the whip could agree on: bring in a clan member to run the city. They approached the elders of their clan, and found Tristan D'Castilla, a prince looking for a city. Through many deals and negotiations with other clans, they managed to bring him to power. The clan own many of the tourist attractions in and around Nashville.


Tristan D'Castilla - Ventrue Prince - Tristan Cristoval Thomas D'Castilla, y de Leon, Rey de Castilla was the eldest son in line for title and lands in Castille, Spain. Unfortunately his home was burned by the Inquisition, who had come in search of Tristan's father. Believing his mother and younger brother dead, he took his sister to their Grandfather in England. In London, Tristan met Stuart Williams. After seven years of friendship, Stuart offered Tristan the embrace. Tristan returned to Spain shortly afterward and was reunited with his brother, who had been embraced by a Toreador. They lived in their family home for many years, then moved first to Madrid then to Berlin. When Nashville's Ventrue went looking for someone to replace the incompetent Daughter of Cacophony who ran the city, Stuart recommended Tristan, who sent in his child and a trusted friend to pave the way for his arrival. Tristan took over the city, and has restored the peace between the clans.
