Blood Dance in the Dust Bowl
Ragman’s great grand sire
Mattias first came to America during the time of the American Civil war in hopes that the new world would be able to provide better weapons that could be used against the Nosferatu’s ancient enemies, the Nictuku. Though he didn’t find the weapons he had hoped to find, he did find a nation whose technology was quickly advancing, technology he knew that he would not be able to understand. Mattias embraced a child, Raphael Dasani, an engineer in the United States Army, and gave him the task of developing advanced weaponry over the coming years that would be powerful enough to destroy the Nictuku. After he instructed Rafael in Nosferatu lore and the legends of the Nictuku Mattias sought a suitable place where he could rest in torpor, and later awaken to the age of technology he hoped for. Mattias does not talk of his sire, but it is speculated that he was sired by Baba Yaga, or perhaps the Matriarch and in one account stories tell of him hailing from Egypt, and that he was embraced anywhere between 1000 and 4000 BC, possibly earlier. He certainly would have to be old to believe he would have any hope of contending with the Nictuku, either that or completely delusional.
