Trinity Hope Willis is a relatively new Kindred in comparison to many. She was was born in 1918 en route to Montreal, Canada from London, England, as a vast populations of Brits emigrated to Canada following the Battle of the Plains Abraham where the French were defeated and surrendered to the British Army. Her mother died in childbirth and she was raised by a nurse when her father, a teacher, had no interest in forging a connection with the child that killed his wife. Trinity never had a relationship with her father, and she was married off to a local doctor's son when she was 16 but he was called for service when World War II struck and he was killed on the frontline when Trinity was just 22 years old and after a stillbirth son a year after they were married, she was left barren and unable to have children.

In those times, being unable to bear children was a black mark against you. She was a widow and expected to be in mourning for a man she respected and cared about, but never loved. She also wasn't any desirable prospect for remarriage not being able to have children and instead, she sunk herself into reading vast amounts of literature, an inner ambition to not just be a damaged widow for the rest of her life. She worked briefly as a nurse for the war, and that was where her interest in medicine sparked, though women didn't have the freedom of career-mindedness they did in today's modern times, and especially not with the war. It led to her taking an idea from Shakespeare and starting to moonlight as a male, dressing like one so she could gain access to more experience. She was determined to become a doctor if it was the last thing she did. And indeed, it did take decades before she got there.

It was night drinking in a gentlemen's club that Trinity was approached by a man - Pierre Belmonte - who told her he knew she wasn't a man. Caught off guard and scared her cover had been blown, she panicked but the man assured her he could help her. He took her back to his home, a mansion on the outskirts of Montreal and she was introduced to the Kindred Masquerade and offered Embraced with the assurances of freedom she would never know in the mortal world. She was overwhelmed and asked for time to learn more, and Pierre's lover, Verity Bourgeois, took Trinity under her wing and began to teach her the ways of Kindred, their Masquerade, and their Clans. It came to light that Pierre was the Prince of the City of Montreal, and Verity his Toreador Primogen. The mansion was the City's headquarters, and as soon as Trinity began to learn, there was no doubt - she wanted to be Embraced. It was also during her tuition that she began to have a passionate affair with both Pierre and Verity, acting as their Vessel many a time. It secured within her a sexual preference towards females, but it was Pierre who told her that her ambition was rich and intense; she belonged to Clan Ventrue.

He Embraced her on the eve of her 24th birthday and Trinity remained in Montreal for many decades to come, living at headquarters with Pierre and Verity, following her ambition and attending Law School and soon became a lawyer. It was interesting as long as she was learning, but once she began practising, she tired of the job quickly. Pierre told her it wasn't where her heart and soul belonged in that case, but Trinity stuck with it a little longer and instead distracted her indifference to the job by learning French, Italian, German, and Latin. Still again, she became bored and it was in the late 1970s that Pierre told her that perhaps Montreal was not where she belonged and that was when Trinity confessed she had always wanted to be a doctor.

Using his power as a Kindred Prince, Pierre secured his childer a prized place at Harvard Law School, and it was there she began moonlighting once again. Not as a male this time, but a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed young medical student with very liberal beliefs, a laidback outlook on life (due to her many experienced over the years), and also an out and proud lesbian where she was involved in LGBT action groups at the college. Studying medicine, she took a keen interest in the AIDS Awareness campaign which happened to become a lot more important to her once she met fellow Harvard med student, Wesley Lawrence. They became close friends, Wes confiding in her that he was bisexual and missed his first love, who was in New York at the time. Things took an awful turn, however, when one day, Wes stopped coming to class, missed their study sessions, and almost disappeared off the radar.

Trinity's Kindred senses told her something was wrong, so never very subtle and even sometimes on the pushy side, she took herself to Wes' apartment to check on him. That was when Wes broke down and spilled to her his own terrible story of how he lost his lover, Felix, to AIDS shortly after they reunited and Felix moved to Boston, and then dropped the bombshell that he, too, was now infected and it was only a matter of time before it claimed his life just like the guy he loved. Wes was a mess, even borderline suicidal by that point having watched Felix die and nurse him through the worst of the illness. He didn't want to go through it himself. So Trinity offered him Embrace. She knew he was the sort of guy who really was hard to isolate into the best Clan, but she knew he was ambitious, especially as to medicine, and Ventrue was all she could offer him. He took it, and that was how Trinity came to Sire her first childer, which to this day, she still loves and adores like a younger brother.

Trinity is now a Professor of Medicine, teaching at Harvard with double specialty in Infectious Diseases and Palliative Medicine, her connection with Wes very much helping her choose that path. It was her achievements that sparked the interest of the Kindred Prince of Boston, Abigail Hawthorne, who approached her at a Harvard cocktail party one night. There was an instant spark, and since then, Trinity has been Abigail's lover and they now lived together in Boston. As a Ventrue, Trinity has an isolated taste on what she can tolerate for sustenance, and she can only feed from bisexual people like herself. She is every bit a traditional Ventrue, true to her Clan, but she also faces life in a very easygoing way, still involved in many LGBT causes and volunteers at a free clinic three evenings a week at a LGBT youth centre, something with keeps her very in touch with the mortal world and stops her disappearing too far into Kindred realms when humanity still means a lot to her.

Within a vampire bloodline known as The Kindred, seven vampire clans are collectively joined, forming the largest sect of vampires called the Camarilla, and survive through the Masquerade, disguising themselves as humans. Camarilla policy is that vampires should try to fit in with and hide from the rest of humanity, as to easily feed on them. For this reason, they created a web of lies and misinformation, called the Masquerade, to make the public believe that supernatural beings like vampires could not possibly exist. The Camarilla also believes that the only way the vampire species can survive in these modern nights is if it unite. Any breach of the Masquerade by any vampire risks exposing the entire race. Both viewpoints are fundamentally opposed by the Sabbat, an opposing sect to the Camarilla. The Camarilla also enforces the Eldest as ruling class over the younger vampires. The seven clans of the Camarilla are Ventrue, Brujah, Malkavian, Toreador, Gangrel, Tremere and Nosferatu. When a human is turned by a Kindred vampire, it is known as the Embrace, the vampire siring the human to embrace them into their own bloodline.

Each city has a ruler, a "Prince" who enforces the laws of The Masquerade that govern them to protect their anonymity. A clan is a group of vampires "related" by blood; i.e. the vampiric equivalent of an extended family or lineage. A clan is usually a large group, acknowledged widely in the vampiric society. Each clan nurture their own characteristics and traits, and each clan has its strengths and weaknesses. Often the clans do not always get along with certain clans such as the Brujah and the Ventrue actually hating one another. Each clan within a given area has a representative, a Primogen, who is usually the eldest and most powerful member of the clan, who attends the leader or prince's advisory council. This status also grants the character social advantages and greater power than being a normal member of their clan.

The Ventrue are the rulers, leaders and politicos of the Camarilla, sometimes known as the Patrician Clan or the Kingship Clan. In Ancient Rome, they were generals and warlords of the Empire, and in the Dark Ages, they were knights and barons, leading crusades and conquests. In modern times the Ventrue still have great ambition and see themselves as conquerors, but their ways have changed, using courts and companies instead of feifdoms and mighty armies. Targets for Embrace by the Ventrue have always been people in positions of power, whether these people were aristocracy or company CEOs. The Ventrue perceive themselves as the most powerful of the vampiric clans thanks to their wealth, social influence, and powers over the thoughts and feelings of mortals. The clan as a whole is typified as conservative, be it in actions or customs. The Ventrue have their own nigh-inviolable code of etiquette. The clan's Elders have been known to punish violations of these unwritten rules with greater ferocity and resolve than the Traditions of the Camarilla.

The Ventrue claim that ruling vampires is their duty, their burden, a task which is interlocked with their fate. The reality is that excessive pride and ambition seem a more convenient explanation as to why they strive to expand their already vast influence and assert themselves over other Kindred. They tend to be politicians, businessmen, military officers, crime lords, important members of powerful religions, sects and cults. In response to what they perceive as a degeneration of the clan from its noble roots, a smaller segment of the clan has forsworn their ties to the Camarilla to join the Sabbat as antitribu. They believe that greed has led the body of the clan astray from its previous glory, so their quest is for righteous military and tyrannical power over other Kindred to reestablish what they believe to be the proper order. The Camarilla Ventrue casually dismiss their antitribu cousins as idealists doomed to failure. Both Ventrue and Ventrue antitribu refer to themselves as the sole "true" heirs of the name.

In comparison to the other vampiric clans, the Ventrue are considered to be especially particular about whose blood they drink. In fact, any given Ventrue can only drink blood from a specific kind of mortal, or from mortals under a specific sort of circumstance. Some may only prey upon a given ethnicity, while others can only feed from humans of a certain occupation or even religion. Some Ventrue can only find nourishment from blood that carries a more rarefied quality such as anger, fear or innocence. Regardless of the sort of blood the Ventrue requires, other blood is regurgitated or simply cannot be swallowed. They may feed from other Kindred with no such restriction. Ventrue prefer to view this flaw as a matter of refined tastes. Of course, with the power (both supernatural and temporal) most Ventrue possess, few go hungry.
