Brief Bio:
Gabriel is the new professor of Medieval Studies at the University of New Orleans (uno). He is a charismatic teacher whose classes are always packed despite the fact that they’re only held at night. He is a well-respected researcher with connections across the globe in academia.
The humans around him have no idea he is a vampire made in the 1200’s during the Fourth Crusades. His regiment had the unfortunate honor of sacking the home of the head librarian of the Library of Constantinople, Niketas Choniates. The men were provided with food, loot, and entertainment during the day on the condition that they leave the librarian’s family be who were hiding in the cellars.
Greedy, the Crusaders went down to the cellars to see what was hidden from them and upon seeing the beautiful women and their children decided to take their pleasure with them. Gabriel protested such unchivalrous behavior vehemently. His fellow Crusaders stabbed him in the gut and left him to die.

When Niketas returned to find the crusaders had raped and pillaged his home, he took a terrible revenge. Finding Gabriel dying before the stairs leading to the cellars, Niketas realized Gabriel was a man of unusual intelligence and integrity and decided to save him. After giving Gabriel a few drops of blood to stave off his death, Niketas captured the Crusaders and locked them into the cellars. Gabriel was made that night and set upon the house’s defilers upon the next knowing it would take a decade for Gabriel to learn to control his baser instincts and needs. Gabriel’s hunger drove him to use and kill his captive comrades over the next fortnight or so. Other Crusaders remaining in Constantinople after the siege were terrified by the screams issuing from the house and stayed away from it in fear.

Gabriel, who had been a very devout man when he sat out upon the Pope’s mission, does not think himself a monster for what he did or becoming a vampire. The true monsters were the Crusaders for he’d witnessed many atrocities from his comrades and feel that they were the ones who broke the covenants between God and man. He was so disgusted by the knight’s behavior that their cross actually repels him.

Niketas kept Gabriel with him for the next hundred years, training the former knight in the ways and secrets of the library. Gabriel eventually became a Guardian and carries at least one artifact of power in his keeping as part of his duties. He also constantly seeks out those with the mental capacity to become a librarian which is part of his duties.

While Niketas has given Gabriel much, his blood comes with a great disadvantage. Gabriel’s appetites are exaggerated more so than most undead and would easily control him if it weren’t for his iron will and training.

About the Librarians

The organization has gone through many fronts and name changes over time, however, the members in the know simply call themselves Librarians collectively. They are an extremely secretive bunch, most are unaware of their existence. The organization is extensive and extremely old, and was behind the founding of the Libraries of Egypt and the University of Timbuktu. Sharing and archiving knowledge is there goal, so they have eyes and ears at nearly every major university.

Every Librarian wears the signet in some form of jewelry ever present on their body. This jewelry identifies them and gives them access to the Librarian’s resources and secret areas. It can also connect them telepathically in a pseudo-information network similar to the net.

A Librarian’s duty is preserve knowledge and history even that which is dangerous to man. When it is deemed necessary, information and artifacts are sealed away in impregnable vaults with supernatural and technology safeguards the likes of which are unimaginably complicated.

Many secrets, artifacts, and weapons have been logged into such secret repositories and only a few members have full access to these stores.

As part of their duties, Librarians are to seek out other beings with the unique mental capacities that would allow them to be a Librarian. To be an actual Librarian, one has to be able to store great amounts of information in their head and retrieve it upon command. When someone is found with the right capacities, he or she is approached and if willing turned into a vampire. These beings are used as back-ups to paper copies of the original materials because libraries were burned often and it was the only way to make sure that things weren't lost.

There is a rigid hierarchy amongst Librarians which is governed by a series of mental and psychological tests. One must have the mental prowess and fortitude to access and use what is learned. Librarians may petitions artifacts and information from the repository as needed. If it is found worthy by the head Librarians then the request is fulfilled.
Those Librarians with minor abilities to access the Librarian networks but have above par fighting abilities are known as Guardians. They are given dangerous tasks such as capturing especially hazardous artifacts or guarding a being or artifact against harrowing odds. They may even keep one such artifact upon their person and it is his or her duty to guard that artifact. To complete their missions, they are equipped with several tools:
• A sub-space pocket which is tied to the signet jewelry. It has the approximate capacity of a foot locker in which equipment and other non-living things can be stored. The equipment can be retrieved upon command.
• A warded box designed to deactivate and shield powerful objects from the world and smaller less powerful bags, bands and/or gloves with similar properties.
• Up to date information about their mission and any weapons or tools needed to complete the mission.

safeguard the following:

Secrets- such as rare books, scientific discoveries, treatise etc., Also, occult information and lore about supernaturals that have been long forgotten by most.

Artifacts - would be lore books, powerful objects, significant historical items (e.g. intact copies of the Dead Sea Scrolls)

Weapons-While for sure the organization has collected weapons over the years, such things are strictly monitored and packed away in highly secure vaults. They would only come out in times of great needs or to fulfill some prophecy.
