Alexandre Hayes was born July 12th, 1735 in New York. His parents were French-Canadians making a living in British territory. He grew up in what would be considered middle-class at the time. His father was a retired privateer, and as such taught Alexandre swordsmanship, leadership and proper ediquite, and in 1751, Alexandre put those skills to use and joined the French Army.
Alexadre rose quickly through the ranks, to the position of officer. In July of 1759 he was mortally wounded by a British mortar shell. Fortunately for Alexandre, his detachment had been followed by a Kindred by the name of Marcel Fortier who had taken notice of Alexandre’s natural leadership abilities. Marcel chose to embrace Alexandre that day.
Marcel had been looking for a protégé to join him in the Knights of the Thorned Wreathe, and Alexandre fit his strict criteria. So Marcel and Alexandre moved far south to Monroe, Louisiana to work with the Invictus in the city.
Alexandre fought as a Knight of the Thorned Wreath for a few decades after that until he disappeared one night in 1799. He didn’t show back up until the spring of 1865, with his new childe, Lillian Blackmore. He became an instructor and trained several Knights over the next two years. However, for reasons unknown to the First Estate, he left the city and traveled east to Miami.
Not much is known of what Alexandre did in Miami the next several years, but in 1874 he moved north to Hutsville, Alabama, now claiming to be among the Sanctified of Longinus. There in Huntsville he, Deacon Jonathan Strange, and his childe Lillian Blackmore founded the local chapter of the Lancea Sanctum and started the Huntsville Parish.
Since that time he has traveled all over the southern US aiding other Lancae Sanctum parishes with their struggles in the region.
In February of 2014, Alexandre claimed Praxis of Huntsville. He knew that the job of Prince may be an impossible one as the city is often referred to as cursed by other Kindred. The office of Prince is more like a revolving door rather than a chair. Little did Alexandre know that he would be known is just two months time as the Last Prince of Huntsville.
Seemingly like a coronation gift, Hunters showed up in town and started causing trouble. They started hunting Kindred and Forsaken alike, and in doing so, provoked a 3-way war between the groups. In just two months the city devolved into chaos. Havens were burned, there were mass murders in the streets and even the federal government stepped in and invoked martial law. It was time for the Huntsville court to close its doors. So on April 10th, 2014, Alexandre ordered an evacuation of all Kindred from the city. He would lead them to a town in North Carolina by the name of Dark Ridge. Here he hoped that the Kindred he swore to protect would find safe haven. However, no place is perfect it seems...
