Sylum Inspiration: Ernesto Olivetti

Lealta: Hunter

Figured highlight some of the Top Ten Favorite Characters!

Ernesto is the only son of Franco and Veronique Olivetti. His father was a Roman Carabinieri, and was killed in a shooting when Ernesto was twenty. He followed in his father’s footsteps when, after two years as an MP in the Italian Army, he joined the Vatican Police.

He was married to Maria, and has four children: Francesco, Mary, Adria and Isabella.

Ernesto rose up the ranks in the Vatican Police quickly, becoming one of the youngest Inspector Generals at the age of 47.

He was introduced to the world of Vampires when he became friends with and later a Chosen One for Andrew Kiernan.

His life radically changed That Night. Though he had known about Vampires, he had not expected to be pulled into a conspiracy that went all the way back to Galileo, who he found out was a Vampire and was betraying his Clan and society.

He chased all over Rome with Robert Langdon and Nicolaus Meridius. Until he ended up at the Santa Maria della Vittoria, his home parish. A place where he laid his life down for his Church only to wake up a Vampire.

Sylum Inspiration Maria Carmichael

Lealta: Member

 

Maria’s family has been Chosen Ones for as long as they can remember.  Her parents, grandparents, and great grandparents took care of the Count of Monte Cristo’s home.  They made sure it was always ready for John and Harold, and killed any rumors that may surface over the decades.

When Austin arrived at the home, she fell in love instantly with the goofy English Butler.  She wooed him, and claimed him as hers.  Her parents weren’t thrilled, but Austin grew on them, and all of them were upset when his parents rejected him.

Then Turned her husband … Mate.

He made Lionel into an Asset, pulling him in to help with the numbers.

John had Lionel moved to the 8th Precinct to work with Carter.

John had Lionel go deeper into HR, to help bring down the organization.  It was then he realized he was finally doing something good.  He liked working with two men, and the dog was cute.

In time Lionel discovered that Carter was also working for them, when the two were trying to help him stop an HR hit.   Only to watch John hunt down the bitch that had stolen Harold.

If that wasn’t enough to prove there was something more going on … after seeing John jump across a four lane highway to get to another building to save Finch, he was sold on the Vampire thing.

She in turn was there for him, when he discovered about Donna.

Lealta Kin Clan: Advisor/Scientist

 

Name: Leonardo

Mate: Robert Langdon

***
Leonardo was youngest son of a small Patrician. He was educated by the finest tutors, and had shown his gift in art and mathematics. His father encouraged his inventions and artistic endeavors.

He was apprenticed to an archetict who worked for Caesar to build new buildings for the glory of Rome. He watched in horror as many of them burned in 64 AD. In the following years he started to work on rebuilding areas that were destroyed.

It wasn’t until he started working on the Colosseum that he felt for once he was helping something grand for Rome.

He met Archmedes during this time, who had come to see the new constructions. The two became friends easily, though Leonardo’s frantic work and inability to rest had the older Greek worried. When he found Leonardo collapsed on his workshop floor, he nursed him back to health then gave him an option to be Turned.

Note: Yes we changed the image of Leonardo due to a rumor for the Assassins Creed movie – that kinda stuck and wouldn’t let go.
