Lord Thomas Blackwell was born in the year of our lord 1850 in the heart of London. Having spent several years as a member of British society he was later embraced in 1881.


Lord Blackwell, a member of the British aristocracy, was turned in 1881 and was presented to the court of London. There were some rumors that his sire embraced the man to prevent the Ventrue from getting to him. His fellow Nosferatu originally shunned him because his conversion left him fairly untouched. Leaving him with skin as white as porcelain, his 'curse' did not necessitate his expulsion to the underworld of the city. Lord Blackwell refused to debase himself, regardless of the customs of his clan, and carried himself as 'the Civilized Monster' in Kindred society. Many Ventrue had been known to compliment him on his hospitality and good form when it came to manners. Many Nosferatu thought him 'too good' to mingle in the sewers and so not all of them accepted him. Still, his tactics and ruthless attention to detail afforded him their respect when it came to the Prince's growing conflict with the Brujah. He rose quickly within the Court and before he moved on there were many of his clan looked to him for aid and occasional assistance in securing transport or influence within society.


In the 1940's, towards the end of World War Two, he was embroiled with a member of the Giovanni family concerning their knowledge of Wraiths and Spirits. The two had been exchanging barbs and minor attacks for the majority of the war but towards the end Blackwell decided to make his move and hopefully steal a great portion of the Giovanni's library. The two fought as the Allies were liberating Rome and the surrounding territories. One stray mortar was the only thing that ended the fight - and nearly killed Blackwell in the process. Thankfully he was able to make off with the remains of the Giovanni's library and retreated back to England to recover. Unfortunately for him his underground haven was covered in the collapse of the building above it and what should have been a brief slumber lasted for nearly sixty years. Returning to the world in the early years of the new millennium has been quite a shock.

New York

After he arose from his torpor he needed to distance himself from London for a while and so he traveled across the ocean to see what the Courts of America were like. Spending only a decade in the city, he occasionally helped in the continual struggle of the Prince in maintaining the Camarilla's hold upon the region. He left the court in good standing but seemed to keep to himself most of the time.
