About Me

Casanova DuGaunt was born to a very wealthy family in Paris, many many years ago. Born to the name of Leon, he grew for a short time in their manor, learning a life of luxury, where he was given much and sought for very little. His parents were that of magical descent, and their gifts were kindled also in him. His first display of power came at a very young age; an accidental Levitation Charm on an unfortunate peahen attempting to pinch his favourite stuffed bear.

In his eighth year, the residents of their little town in wonderful Paris learnt of the family's unusual gifts through the rumours of their servants, and drove them out of their home. Taking all the possessions they could manage, they fled not only the town but the country, seeking a new life over-shores, in a majestic world spoken of highly in France. America was to be their salvation, yet delivered only a curse.

New Orleans was where they settled, in a beautiful city of the French language. Leon became quite the adventurer, and one night, wandering the streets upon his 21st birthday, he was attacked. Rarely spoken of, yet a large threat, a vampire stole his blood and fed him a new life; one of many possibilities, tainted only by the need for blood. In a tragedy, he fed upon his wife to be, draining her to death.

Distraught, he fled from his family to London, England. He was discovered by a group of wise and powerful vampires - the DuGaunt Clan. He took on their name, fashioning himself also the forename of Casanova. His old life was diminished, and throughout the years, his memories were buried.

A love for women kept him young, and he earned his reputation as a love scoundrel, and a womanizer. With glee, he sought out passionate nights with the most beautiful of women, yet a murderer he never became, feeding only from wrong-doers and criminals. Yet, as the modern world flourished, he took magical education from the Ministry, and to this day, uses both vampiric senses and magic to his advantage.
