It took me so long but here it is! My guy! I might add more later. I wanted to go over all the big banking stuff of all time.
Full Name: William Johnathan Lancaster "Mammon's Brother"
Nicknames/Alias/AKA: There are so many names. Here are a few of his favorites.
William: His fellow Originals have always called him William. He has many names but that one stays the same regardless of his persona.
Billy: His current preferred name for his favorite cover. He looks young enough to be a party animal. He most certainly is an animal and can hide his true intentions. Billy always seems to be at the hottest clubs. Everyone only sees the hard partying boy and yet they never see the boy talking to scary men in suits.
The Banker: He is known only as The Banker. This shadowy figure seems to be every where, yet nowhere. Terrified men scream of a man who "cannot be" with his army of loyal lieutenants with their thugs. The man funds criminals around the world and seems to move like a ghost. Whoever he is, this man has power and knows how to wield it.
Age: Looks around: 21 years old. Real Age : 720 years old. Born on June 28 , 1297 in London. Gender: Male
Occupation:: Far too many to count. However, his occupation on paper would be student. While in reality, he is a criminal mastermind or he likes to say so. It makes him seem more interesting. Will has money for any occasion.
Hair Color: Light Brown
Eye Color: Grey
Height/Build: 6'1" Muscular due to his nature.
Personality: Just like his three names and aliases, there are different facets to William. Each one of his aliases has a different personality.
William: Ever since he was changed into what he is now, William has been loyal to his fellow Originals. They were the family that he never really had. William is the voice of reason who does his best to keep everyone from yelling at each other. There is no reason for them all to be fighting since they are all in it together. William does not announce this to his "family" but he has made nine different bank accounts for them in case of a rainy day. He knows how hard it is to have to run away from something so having the money ready for them should they need it. William knows how to maneuver through human society unseen and has an odd fixation with them. He does not see them as cattle or food but as interesting beings. That does not stop him from drinking blood but he does not do it for kicks. Unless it is one of the Six. One of his favorite things is drinking the blood of one of them. Nothing tastes better in this world. Oddly enough, William hates regular vampires. The creatures made by his siblings are barely vampires in his eyes. They are perfection and these things are not worthy of a place at the table. A true vampire is one who eats the heart of an immortal to gain true power. William only keeps a few of the "lesser vampires" around as basic thugs or attack dogs at worst.
Billy: Billy is a rather new persona. Since the modern world has odd stereotypes when it comes to money, William created the bon vivant character of of Billy. Billy can go running around the city acting young and stupid. No one cares what some 20 something is doing in a club that just so happens to be owned by Colombian drug lords who have issues with a certain powerful banker. Billy can move unseen which is just the way William likes his personas. Billy enjoys drinking and acting like a fool at all of the hottest night clubs. William acts like Billy is just another person.
The Banker: He is quiet and frightening to say the least. He does not want to be seen and does everything that he can to keep himself in the shadows. Early on in his new life, William discovered that it was easier to use human agents to do his bidding. No one would bat an eye if some old man was running an empire but they would have questions as to why a young man was at the helm. So the Banker stays in the shadows. Most people only ever see his agents. Only his trusted Lieutenants, The Golden Ones, and his fellow Originals know the Banker's true name. Every one of his Lieutenants would die for their Master and William rewards their loyalty. He is oddly protective of his Golds since their families have served hims for countless generations.
To say that William was born in filth would be an understatement. William Johnathan Lancaster was born on June 28, 1297 in the foulest corner of the kingdom of England. His mother was a prostitute and young William saw the true darkness in the hearts of men. He saw how foul people could be just by watching how his mother made her money. Most of her coin went towards his drinks or herself and thus William had to learn how to steal to make his living. He would steal food or whatever else he could get his hands on. By the time he was ten, William had made his own gang of street children who would steal for their leader. William enjoyed his little kingdom until he tried to steal from the wrong person. Will spotted a well dressed man and a woman (Jon and Agnes) walking through his local market. Without even thinking, Will tried to steal the rich man's coin purse but the man moved like a snake and caught the boy's hand. Instead of begging for his life, Will glared at the man and refused to cower. His lack of fear seemed to impress the pair and they decided to take the boy as a mascot of sorts. William distinguished him using his street smarts to prove to the two that he was worthy of their time. The two taught William how to fight and act in certain situations. William excelled in his lessons and was fiercely loyal without a shred of selfish desire. William was ambitious but not power hungry. He knew his place in the world and he liked it. Jon and Agnes told him the story of the Six and how certain people could gain power from it. That power of immortality was all William wanted for himself.
His efforts seemed to pay off around his twenty first birthday, when he was called down into a deep dark basement. There William saw ,strapped to a stone slab, one of the Six (To be named Later). Jon and Agnes helped Will cut out the still beating heart and eat it raw. Thus William Lancaster became the third Original. William relished in his new undeath. It was everything that he had ever wanted and yet he could not find his own place in the world. He had been a common thief but he had to be more. For 100 years, William was just lost and could not find his place in the world. Then whilst in Italy for Jon on the hunt for the Six, William found his true calling. That calling was Banking. He could not lead men into battle but he surely could make the money for wars appear and vanish at the same time. Money was the true power in this world and Will had a skill for it. For years, he was a Banker as he slowly turned into the man he would become. He rubbed elbows with the Medici and he thought that he found another one of the Six but he could not place her. After years of profiting from the near constant Italian Wars, William decided to return to his native England since he felt that was where the money was going.
William saw the Goldsmiths and their practices and quickly joined in on his own. He had enough gold to start lending on his own and eventually used this gold to continue into his own bank. He was there when Child & Co opened its doors to start lending. William used his gold and banking knowledge he had gained in Italy to raise his investments. William saw the South Sea Company as an amazing investment and invested heavily in the company. During this time, he run into a gang called The Travers Gang. William needed a group of thugs to get their hands dirty while William kept to the shadows. The Guardians and Hunters were all over London while William had to stay hidden for now. He could send his boys out while he stay in the shadows giving the orders. His men were fiercely loyal to him and it gave Will enough time to focus on making money while helping his siblings wherever they were needed. Will saw the signs that the South Seas Bubble was about to burst and got out quick. He made countless of millions of pounds with his smart investments but it caught the attention of the Six. William quickly took his cash and fled the city for the Americas. Before he escaped, he gave his investments to the Travers Gang while teaching them what to do. The group swore their loyalty to their master and Will fled feeling safe in his choices.
He settled in the colony of New York. There were so many new investments in the Americas. The Guardians were not as deeply entrenched in the New World and Will saw a chance for making more money. Will got involved with the Tobacco trade while gaining another group of loyal servants, The Campbells . This family needed a patron and Will needed a cover. So he used his knowledge to keep the family going. They grew rich off the backs of forced labor but Will did not care any more. He was beyond caring about the plights of the average person. The Campbell clan eventually got too powerful after a vampire changed a few of them against Will's demands. So Will used his power to trap the entire family inside of their mansion and burned them alive in punishment. He was not going to take this kind of disloyalty. From then on, Will took direct control of his North American holdings and swore that his siblings were the only vampires he would trust. During the American Revolution, Will supported the Americans mostly because he wanted to gain even more power in the new colony. He tried his best to get his brothers and sisters to come over to the colonies with him.
Then Will decided that he wanted to travel again. This time he went towards colonial India. He had invested in the East India Company and wanted to see the continuing investment. Will arrived in Bombay in 1795. Once there, he decided to get into the Opium Trade. It was an interesting and lucrative trade to China. While he was in Bombay one day, he felt a hand in his pocket. Quick as a whip, Will grabbed the hand of a young Indian boy. For the first time in almost 500 years, Will felt pity for this boy. Raj Heravdakar was the boy's name and he reminded Will of himself. Just like Jon had done for him, Will took the boy in and trained him in his path. He wanted Raj to take over his Asian investments. This was the first time that Will had gotten into the drug trade and he loved it. The risk was minimal and the profits were high since he was growing his own poppy and making his own opium for trade. In the end he got a great deal of coin off the backs off addicts. Will eventually left Bombay in the capable hands of Raj. He knew that the man would be better than most at making money. Will got his hands into human trafficking and the drug trade. Now he had multiple ways of making money for his empire.
Will added multiple other members to his little group. During WW2, Will met Vladimir Luka. He instantly liked the Russian smuggler and his devil may care attitude. Will combined his South East Asian holding with Vladimir so he could smuggle his diamonds and people through Eastern Europe. The smuggler boosted his trade and now Will feels untouchable. He has everything working exactly how he likes it. Will wants to move into South America to get his hands on some of that sweet cartel cash. It is the one continent where he does not have an Empire. He created The Golden Ones to condense his holdings and to keep his allies close. He gave each of them a title based on their native tongues to make them as mysterious as The Banker. Each one of the mortal families tells the story of their immortal benefactor and how he protects them. Will has so much work to do right now. He wants the whole world in his hand but his family needs him. The Middle East and South America can wait since Will feels like going on the hunt with his owned officials. Will sits in his penthouse in Manhattan and enjoys his life. Sometimes you just have got to have a little fun. Nothing says fun like going on the hunt again.
Extra: He has an odd obsession with the Silver Daggers that can kill him. The magic or whatever that created them makes them very interesting.
Will has cultivated as large group of loyal human agents. He dislikes vampires on the most part since most are unlike his family. Each one of his The lieutenants are all mortal and fiercely loyal to their Master without the need of mind control.
The Golden Mistress of Mumbai. Kareena is Will's most trusted agent. She smuggles in drugs and humans.
The current Head of the Travers Clan. Will turned them from a street gang of thugs to a street gang of Bankers. The family has money all around the world.
