The owner/creator of the Vampire Club was born October 16, 1854 in Dublin, Ireland. The son of a wealthy physician, Oscar studied at Trinity College in Dublin and at Magadalen College, Oxford. From his youth, Oscar showed an amazing talent for writing.
After college, he attracted a great deal of attention by championing the Aesthetic School of thought. This was the “art for art’s sake” school of thinking. At this time, he also was beginning to attract the attention of the Toreador Clan. He expressed his beliefs in his lifestyle. He indulged in eccentric dress such as velvet knee breeches and often appeared in public with a flower or two. He was such an outspoken and public figure that he was satirized by Gilbert and Sullivan in their musical Patience.
Today, as Sebastian Melmoth, owner and founder of the Vampire Club, he enjoys a great deal of fame and respect among the Kindred. He is regarded by his fellow Toreadors as a prime example of what being a Toreador is all about. He is a major figure among the Artistes and even the Poseurs give him a grudging respect. After all, he’s thrown the longest continuing party anyone of them can remember and, if he has his way, the party and the art will go on forever.
