Campaign of the Month: October 2017
Blood and Bourbon
Racist good ol' boy & regent of Uptown
“Anyone will tell you I find gaudy accessories to be the crutch of the hopelessly tasteless. It had always been a rule of mine to accessorize with nothing larger than a child’s fist. However, there inevitably comes a time where you find something so consummately complementary, exceptions need to be made; Pierpont is my exception. "
“Gerousiastis McGinn is a fine fellow, though I’ll never understand his fascination with cigars. I suppose I’ll just have to agree with Mr. Freud. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.”
Pierpont McGinn is a tall, steel-jawed Southern man with dirty-blond hair and chalky-blue eyes. He dresses in light-colored suits that accents what he terms his “perfection of breeding.” His favorite affection—a fine Southern cigar—is frequently seen nestled between two white fingers. Curiously, he does not seem bothered by the proximate source of flame that so upsets other Kindred.
The most bombastic voice in New Orleans’ Prima Invicta belongs to the Ventrue schemer Pierpont McGinn. His star has been on the rise in the local Invictus in rough conjunction with the decline of Accou Poincaré’s, and thus the two are not on especially good terms. Still, McGinn’s successes are hard to argue with, and the fact remains that he has emerged as one of the leading members of the region’s First Estate.
A child of the American Reconstruction, McGinn was born into wealth and prestige, and has worked to maintain both in the decades since his Embrace. Though he is far from the eldest Kindred within the Invictus, he holds a reputation as one of its most traditional members. That is, McGinn absolutely believes that the Invictus should rule every Kindred domain, that the Ventrue should rule the Invictus, that the Prima Invicta should rule the Ventrue. Though McGinn sits on both that august body and his clan’s gerousia, in addition to ruling Uptown as Vidal’s duly appointed regent, he is still not satisfied. He sees only the fact that membership on the Cabildo is absent from his list of titles and honorifics. Thus, McGinn constantly schemes to advance his cause regardless of which way the winds of chance may blow the factional warfare in the Big Easy.
