Players: Joshua Bowen
|Public Effects:||Status (City) 5, Status (Invictus) 4, Giant,|
|Titles||Board Member on behalf of the Invictus|
|Age:||Appears middle aged.|
A middle aged Caucasian man standing at nearly seven feet in height he quite literally is head and shoulders above the average person. Often dressed in conservative suits when in public.
His physical size taken on an even more exaggerated proportion, like something out of mythology a giant half man with pale skin and the black eyes of a beast.
Not much is known about Bowen before he came to Miami in the early 1920’s, He is believed to have been from new England and possibly involved in the railroads prior to his embrace. What is known is that when he arrived here along with his friend and former prince Cornell Mason things would never be the same in Miami.
When the hurricane of 1926 hit Miami it was Bowen’s opportunistic nature which prompted the pair to cement their power. striking their rivals with ruthless efficiency. Those political opponents who were not physically destroyed found mobs of rioters set on their havens and other assets ensuring those who survived would either flee the domain or be too weak when it was over to mount an effective opposition.
They would remain the unchallenged power in Miami until the prince fell into torpor an in the chaos that followed began to threaten the masquerade itself. Violence and armed conflict between kindred was a nightly occurrence, and supernatural feats were regularly displayed in public. Fearing the consequences of continuing the feud within the city Joshua Bowen was able to pull together the leaders of each covenant in addition to the eldest member of each clan to hammer out an agreement and settle things for the good of the kindred community, and in doing so secured a position for himself as the main power broker at the table.
Everyone needs a favor sometime (Anyone):
Bowen doesn’t own a monopoly on trading boons and favors in Miami but he has all but mastered it. if you don’t personally owe him for something than you know someone who does be them kindred kine or something entirely different.
The stick (All/Kindred):
Those that Bowen doesn’t have in his debt he probably has dirt on. maybe he knows about your mortal family and which dorm window belongs to your daughter, or about that time you buried something out in the everglades…. If you have made a mistake, a bad choice or have something to lose he might well know about it…. and if not he might well pay good money to find out.
The Puppet Master (Kindred):
It has long been rumored that Bowen is the real power behind the board. Some have gone so far as to suggest the reason the current board president (Tyrus Alexander) was chosen is because Bowen believed he could control him. Being able to wield this power though requires information, and capable agents to get things done. Both of which Bowen is always on the lookout for.
