Mirrors, Monsters, and Misfits
“Jones” is the pseudonym for a powerful vampire. It is believed his real name is Evgeny Rodionovich. ( Евгений Родионович )
It is believed that he is a Russian, of an age nearly or at least a century. Research has found that he was probably a Graf (similar to a western Count) in north-western Russia in the mid-19th century. He seems to have been driven out of his holdings by the Tsar’s men, who were displeased with his excesses.
He is a known associate of Wong Fung. The two vampires are both masters of poison and sworn brothers.
It is thought that Jones is fond of using military-grade chemicals as part of his blood magics.
It is also believed that he Embraced “Smith”. He had Smith along for his atrocious debauchery in the trenches of World-War-1, until Smith rebelled and tried to kill him.
He seems to be obsessed with Smith. In the haze of his insanity and moral Degeneration ( * ) due to addictive corruption of the blood of his victims, and with his superstitious (or is it?) trust of fortune-tellers, he has locked his fate into a tragic circle.
In his deranged madness, he may have betrayed the trust of his sworn brother, Wong Fung.
( * ) per our discussion at game night, morality Degeneration leads to derangement and madness. Each of the splats has a morality scale to which they are bound.
