Character Details

Giacomo's life has led him to have a rather unique outlook and value system. Due to his upbringing and his role with organized crime, he tends to buck authority of a more orderly type. Since his conversion to a vampire, however, he has viewed that as his replacement for the Family, proving loyal to this Sheriffs, Kings, and Queens he has lived under. He is fiercely loyal of those persons and groups he has sworn allegiance to. He doesn't hesitate to use violence and is certainly capable of cruelty, but must justify its use in his head before it is implemented. He isn't too happy about the choice of other vampires to expose the entire group, as he thinks it has led to more scrutiny than necessary.

He's fairly cocky in reference to his own skills, that coming with the bravado bred into him with the mob and the general superiority complex that most Vampires hold. At this point, G views his violent ways simply as a means to support himself in his other pursuits. Towards humans, he has a supportive, if patronizing view in an academic sense, but tends to be a bit more abusive in practice. The other supernaturals he has a strong tendency to be skeptical of or even hostile to, as he views them as competitors to his "family's" dominance.

On a personal level, G is a smooth talker and extremely forward. Rather than dress up what he is trying to express, he'll go right to the point, truthful or not. He often indulges in more hedonistic things, given dancing, drinking, and men, generally a simultaneous combination of the three.
