Louis is the quintessential nobleman, protective of his vassals and gracious to his enemies. His first concern is protecting his domain, and then protecting the interests of the Free States. He has a great deal of respect for Jeremy, recognizing a born leader when he sees one, and is anxious to help him further the goals of the anarchs to whom he has pledged his existence. The declared equality between all Kindred on which the Free States rest offends his noble sensibilities, but he is excited by the possibilities of this “experiment in democracy.” He is one of the few vampires in the Free States who has any interest in the economic well-being of his barony, and under his very tight control the Westside has prospered far better than anywhere else in the Los Angeles area.
Louis lives in almost sybaritic luxury, surrounded by the most beautiful objects and people that money can buy. Despite his unlife, Louis never lost his appreciation of beautiful women. He has surrounded himself with three of the most attractive, and deadly, women in the Free States. Louis rarely leaves the confines of his magnificent Beverly Hills home, but his mistresses are often seen at Free States gatherings and are women to be reckoned with in their own right. No one knows how many ghouls serve Louis, but it is believed to be the largest “army” of ghouls in the Free States. All of the ghouls are young, strong and beautiful, and require little blood to stay that way. Even so, Louis sometimes has difficulty meeting their demands, even with the help of his mistresses, and has occasionally created a vampire to sate his ghouls‘ hunger.
