Vampire - Abyssus Abyssum Invocat
Mateo Acosta was born in the mid 1500s in Spain. He became involved in the Catholic church in his early 20’s and discovered that he was profoundly skilled at politics. He advanced quickly, consolidating considerable power by the time that he reached his 30’s. He was embraced at 38 by the Ventrue as an inroad to destabilize the Lasombra monopoly over the Spanish Catholic institution. Mateo was equally adept at vampire politics and after causing considerable inconvenience found himself the target of multiple attempts at assassination by the Lasombra. After coming close to final destruction Mateo decided it was time to move, and he took the arduous journey to the New World in the 1600s. Mateo moved between missions seeking to find a base of power, eventually coming to rest as one of the first Kindred in St. Louis. It did not take long for him to declare himself Prince.
