René Baristheaut

Caroline's deceased sire


“I don’t have any regrets, really. The last person I hurt deserved it.”
René Baristheaut before his execution

“He didn’t just torture me—to death. He didn’t just murder me. He didn’t just murder my brother and mind-rape my best friend. He destroyed my life. Destroyed my future. Took everything that I had from me and damned me. And he didn’t even have the decency to do it properly. There may come a night I can forgive him, that I can appreciate what I am and the possibilities open to me because of what he did. It’s not tonight. I hope he’s enjoying his stay in hell.”
Caroline Malveaux-Devillers (on the record)

Once a hound in service to the prince under his sire, the then-sheriff of New Orleans Robert Bastien, René Baristheaut departed the service of the prince following the destruction of his sire and became a nomad, wandering from city to city.

He returned to New Orleans in 2015 for the first time in nearly a century, and in the city found his doom at the hands of his ‘childe’, Content Not Found: caroline-malveaux who delivered his staked form to the prince to be executed before the city at Trial of John Harley Matheson.
