Born in 1165 as the bastard son of Claude d’Anjou and Marialea of Carcasonne, Jacopo was abandoned by his father when Marialea became pregnant with Peter Culliford by Alfric Culliford. Alfric took Peter as soon as he was born and Jacopo was raised alone by his mother.
When Jacopo was 15, Marialea took him to the Paris Preceptory, and demanded entrance and an audience with the captain of the guard. Jacopo was left alone outside. When Marialea emerged, she kissed her son and left him. Jacopo was taken in by the templars as a stable-boy. It would be many years before he learned of the connections that had allowed his mother to give her son this gift.
Jacopo became a shield-bearer at 18 and was squired to Alfric Culliford at 20. The next year he embarked on a voyage to Constantinople, a journey that would change his life beyond his wildest imaginings.
In Constantinople, Jacopo was squired to Cristobal de Aragon. He met Darius von Hapsburg and Jean-Baptiste de la Croix and was recruited by Kromrich and von Hinkel to help root out corruption in the local templarate.
Jacopo was Embraced by Mahmoulian von Hildesheim. As such, he believed himself to be a Herement, although his actual bloodline was Baali. How Jacopo the Baalim became Sieur Jacopo d’Anjou d’Outremer, Comte d’Esdraelon, aka ‘Angel of Tears’, and a Salubri, Blooded through the ancient rite of Samael…that is a long, long story…enjoy the read!
Sire (Baalim): Mahmoulian von Hildesheim
