The immaculate creature known as Florian Ribeni prized being a Vampire for he was vain enough to choose beauty and youth over wisdom and wise enough to appreciate a life without the boundaries of death, illness, or poverty. Not quite tied to gender preference Florian spent his nights lusting after the unattainable or engaging in sexual misadventures while shirking anything resembling responsibility. The last to serve his community he preferred the lighter aspects of life, fashion, gossip, good wine laced with sanctioned blood and seduction. Florian loved seduction above all things and if not for a troublesome Elf, a demon bandit, his personal anger at witnessing the demise of Vampires, he would be leading the aimless, artless, and trite life that he adored. Then there was the Pixie, an inebriated sot with sudden affections and even more sudden dislikes. Beb decided Florian was his new best friend and offered his much unwanted and erratic help to the newly conscripted Runner. Chasing after a deviant Vampire and running from a cannibal cult the pair was determined to save the world—if only an annoying Mage and some arrogant demons would keep out of the way.
