About Him

Grew Up… in France in the late 1700s. While technically a noble family, his family was actually poor, having squandered the family’s riches. Lestat hated his brothers and father, even dreaming about killing them. He was finally able to escape them with his mother’s help. He moved to Paris and became an actor.

Living… forever. While on the Paris stage, Lestat caught the eye of a vampire, who changed him into a creature of the night. Immortal, strong, fast – Lestat will probably keep “living”, if that’s what you call it, for a long time yet.

Profession… independently wealthy. After inheriting his maker’s fortune, Lestat can do whatever he likes, and often does.

Interests… the finer life. He enjoys acting, music, literature, and fashion. Lestat also relishes his vampire powers, enjoying the hunt and the kill.

Relationship Status… complicated at any given point. Lestat has a terrible habit of falling in love with people and changing them into vampires, without asking them first. And since he’s bisexual, that just multiplies the number of people he could fall into an ill-advised romance with.

Challenge… answering the big questions. While Lestat enjoys being a vampire, he often ponders whether there’s something more, if there’s a God, if He has a plan, if His plan includes vampires like Lestat. If he wants to answer those questions, though, he’s going to have think about someone but himself for a change.

Personality… bold and dangerous. Lestat has been called the “Brat Prince” for his self-centeredness and vanity. But he’s more than just a pretty playboy. He’s had centuries to educate himself, and he’s incredibly hard to kill. He also has a soft heart, if you happen to be one of the people he cares about.
