Often Mistaken for a Toredor this Tremere Knows how to Play the Social Game
Chronicle:Portland By Night
Date of Birth:3-12-1948
Cohn Rose grew up in a wealthy Jewish family in Virginia. His father was a diplomatic attache to the new state of Israel,and later a persuasive lobbyist for the US’s continual support of Israel. Cohn was no stranger to politics,and the political life of the back room deals,and power brokering that goes on before the public is made aware. He carefully watched and emulated his father and was proud of him. Cohn had a privileged existence before his Embrace,but Cohn was easy to spoil-always happy,and learned from his father’s example, the value of listening with all his attention,and repeating back what was said,making the person feel important,and what the person was saying valuable no matter how banal, or mundane it might be or no matter how busy he might be.
Clan Tremere saw Cohn Rose as a valuable asset to Clan Tremere for his social grace and political acumen. Naturally it helped that he was intelligent,and devastatingly handsome. He possessed the ability to schmooze in all the right places with the right people.
Before his Embrace, Regent Helena Taylor collected as much information as she could about Cohn and his family. She made sure that his parents were transferred to Israel where his parents subsequently perished in a terrorist attack. Helena came to Cohn when he was in a black pit of despair,and Embraced him and made him part of Clan Tremere. All of Cohn’s contemporaries believed that given his ability to garner influence,make friends and cut political deals,he was a shoo in for Prince of some small city.
The Sabbat invasion of the eastern seaboard occured,and Washington DC fell to the Sabbat. The Tremere chantry was the only Camarilla presence existant in all of Washington DC. Also given the claustrophobic quarters of the Washington DC Chantry,a bit of a rivalry developed between he and Pieter von Dorn-the two vying for the attention of Pontifex Peter Dorfman,and their sire Helena Taylor.
In recent nights, Cohn Rose has been transferred to Portland to win back for Clan Tremere,and to place him as Prince of the city. It is only possible with Cohn Rose’s abilities and acumen. Cohn Rose will work on getting a viable chantry in Portland,rebuilding the library while defeating the Sabbat incursion into Portland. Cohn certainly has his work cut out for him.
