Family History

Mortal Life & Turning

Ian Demetrius Warren, now known as Vex, was born in a small town in the east of Ontario, Canada. Son of the town's blacksmith, Ian spent the most of his youth helping his father in the workshop. With a both a younger (Leonard) and an older brother (Paul), Ian had always been the outwardly calm, level-headed of the three siblings; he was always the one who mediated arguments between the other two - arguments which he usually caused. Eager to prove himself, Ian voluntarily joined the Canadian military on his 18th birthday. After a brief period of training, Ian was sent overseas along with the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division. Three years spent in garrison and training in the United Kingdom before the division was assigned to Operation Overlord - the Battle of Normandy.

Late afternoon, after the taking of Juno beach, Pte. Warren was wounded - shot twice, the first puncturing a lung and the second through the abdomen and grazing his spine. While not immediately fatal, Ian lost consciousness. He survived until nightfall and awoke amid the dead and dying. There was movement amid the field of corpses - a member of the kindred feeding on the blood of the fallen. As the creature reached him, Ian managed to free his knife and, with his last vestiges of strength, drove the knife into the creature's neck. His last living memory is the taste of blood washing over his lips.

Subsequent Years

After coming to terms with his new identity, Ian changed his name to Vex, a childhood nickname given to him by his elder brother. Vex spent the his first 49 years as a vampire wandering the European countryside in solitude, spending very little time in one place. Despite having spent the better part of his life overseas, he never felt at home on the Eurasian continent. One day in early 1993, he boarded a cargo ship headed for North America, where he traveled across Canada and the United States in search of a place to call home. After years of searching, he happened upon RavenBlack City in late October of 2005.
