Michigan by Midnight
Reginald Smythe is a Tremere Vampire and one of the Brood Mates of King Charles. In life Reggie was a Bio-Chemist, and Research Scientist working for the laboratories at University of Michigan. His family was a member of the financial elite in Michigan prior to his embrace.
Reggie was a fairly faithful Vampire, until his brood decided to betray the current Crown Prince of Metro Detroit Joseph Langtry. After they left the umbrella of The Camarilla Reggie butchered and Diablerized the ranking Tremere Elders in Metro Detroit. He then joined The Sabbat, and became involved in a plot to understand the Tzimisce. At some point Reggie gained the ability to use the Vicissitude Discipline, and eventually mixed it with his own Thaumaturgical knowledge. His construction of Tzimisce-inspired War Ghouls is considered to be a cornerstone of The New Republic’s early success against the predations of The Camarilla, and The Sabbat.
Little is known about Reggie’s whereabouts today, but it is known that he maintained estates in Grosse Pointe, Bloomfield Hills, and Traverse City.
