Pervis Guillaume “Lil’ Willy” Boggs
Cletus' foremost herald & bastard necromancer
Name: Pervis Guillaume Boggs
Aliases: Lil’ Willy
Ethnicity: American. The Boggs are Scotch-Irish by descent, but to their view, they’re simply American.
Date of Birth: October 2nd, 1883 (Slidell, Louisiana)
Date of Ghouling: October 2nd, 1900 (Slidell, Louisiana)
Apparent Age: Late teens
Real Age: Approx. 140
Eye Color: Brown
Hair Color: Blond
Religion: Nominally Southern Baptist. The Boggs’ particular brand of Christianity, led for decades by Wilbur T. Boggs, consists almost exclusively of members of the extended clan. Generations of incest, cannibalism, and depravity have warped its dogma into something most Baptists would find utterly unrecognizable, even if Wilbur wasn’t in the habit of rewriting, misremembering, or making up scripture on the spot (frequently casting Cletus and his favorite descendants in the roles of biblical heroes). Most outsiders would describe the debauched “faith” as a cult. Still, the Boggs consider themselves proper God-fearing Christians.
Pervis Guillaume “Lil’ Willy” Boggs is Cletus’ necrophiliac, clubfooted bastard son conceived during the patriarch’s mass impregnation of Slidell before his Bacio della Morte. Pervis functions as Cletus’ primary herald in New Orleans and frequent (as well as current) resident of the Quarter’s Italian House, alongside most of the non-Boggs Giovannini. Partly due to such associations, Pervis is one of the Boggs’ foremost necromancers, arguably second only to Isabelica. Rightly or not, he considers himself Cletus’ true and rightful heir—and thus resents that he’s been passed over at least twice for his own Bacio della Morte. When not representing Cletus to other Kindred or ghouls, Pervis researches potential means of creating Boggs revenants—or engages in his hobby of proxy serial killing using dominated patsies. Whether at home or abroad, the clubfoot is usually accompanied by his surrogate mother-servant, the former French Quarter stripper/porn actress, Bambi Earlene Boggs—or at least her zombified remains.
