Paul, Daniella's Ghoul
The guests of Lord Giovanni were taken from various points to all arrive at the Red Lamb Inn. The evening before the party, we mingled with each other in the common room. There, we met a young soldier. Paul came over to Sister Daniella and asked to join her. He introduced himself, and began to tell her of his story.
Paul was not part of the group that was to be going to Lord Giovanni's dinner party. Paul was a soldier who was crippled in the crusades. He spoke of serving under the Crusader Janos Hunyady, and how in a battle against the Turks he received a deep leg wound.
Paul heard that Lord Giovanni is hiring a large number of household guards, and is very interested in working for him. Paul said he knew no other trade then fighting. He explained that being a soldier required long marches, which he is now unable to do because of his leg injury. Lord Giovanni was looking for house guards, which is work he could do.
"If Lord Giovanni will not hire me, I know not what I'll do." he said with a worried look.
When Lord Giovanni's steward Lothar came in later in the evening, Sister Daniella spoke to him and requested he be considered for a guard position. Lothar accepted him, and Roderigo beckoned Paul to come with them. Paul happily went off to his new job.
The next time we saw Paul was at the dinner party the next night, when Claudius Giovanni ordered him to kill Sister Daniella. He refused, and Claudius backhanded him across the room into a wall. He landed so hard we feared him dead, but we soon had our own problems as the vampires began feeding on us. Hardestadt attacked the dinner party, causing our captors to embrace us before they fled. When Hardestadt arrived, we surrendered to Roderigo. Taken to Hardestadt's castle, it was eventually determined that he would allow us to return to our sires to serve as spies for him. But Hardestadt did not wish to allow Paul to leave.
"He knows too much about our kind now." Hardestadt said. "He must be killed, or made a ghoul."
We talked to Paul and explained the options to him, and he chose to be Daniella's ghoul.
Paul now watches over us during the day as we sleep, and helps us with errands that can't be done at night.
Paul has done better from this situation as well. He is blood bound to a domitor who thinks highly of him and treats him well. He has a permanent job which takes care of him and pays well. His leg has healed a bit just from being a ghoul, and once Daniella learned bonecraft she reset his leg with vicissitude so he was no longer crippled.
