I agree is the thing about Arthur being a Vampire apart of the VTM lore?  Or was it some random VTM fan that wrote in the entry?


I hope that entry is more than unreliable  :58_83:  !

According to the V5 Camarilla book the Bloodlines 1 Arthur Kilpatrick isn´t the real Arthur Kilpatrick, just a human for who knows what reasons to pretend to be Arthur Kilpatrick.
Which is completely ridiculous! Does Arthur Kilpatrick look as if he would care enough about anything to even think about doing this? Certainly not. This is as bad as that islamic gay women-defender Anarch shown in the V5 source book, and probably another reason why a lot of people prefer V20!
At least I got Skelter's clan removed from the Wiki ;).

From Page 102 of the V5 Camarilla Book:

"Nick Kilpatrick Neonate of the 12th Generation.
He worked as a bail bondsman in the family business before being Embraced in 1994 by his brother Arthur (now missing).
Kilpatrick serves as Sheriff of Cincinnati, guarding the city against all manner of chaos and foul play.
He loves his job and it knwon to be eager to punish any from of transgression, not always waiting for the Prince to pass judgement before doing. An adept criminal himself, despite his "day job" as Sheriff of the court, he still does occasionally use his safe-cracking skills to pop open a vault.

Prone to bouts of depression, he can sometimes be suicidal and deeply ashamed of his addicition of feeding off of crack addicts and other drug users in order to get his fix.
His large family is his main weakness. He tries to hide them as best he can, but Kilpatrick Bail Bond is a  well known company, and on one occasion his grandmother was kidnapped by an Anarch gang.
While he didn´t recover his nana alive, the gang completly disappered without a trace.

I don´t know but is pretty vague. Of course its strange to have two Arthur Kilpatrick with the same company but its not impossible. Maybe the wiki folks shouldn´t state this as fact.

This still is stupid. Arthur tells the player in Bloodlines gladly about all kinds of stuff regarding bail bonding and bounty hunting and never mentioned that this is a family job and they are a franchise? Compare that to e.g. Chunk mentioning his brothers because Troika knew they wanted to use one. This is stupid fan-fiction retconning in my eyes...

Thanks for the info Wilhelm. It does seem rather vague and unclear.


Could we contact White Wolf perhaps ? Maybe some rando wrote this in the wiki and can still be edited ?

Wilhelm already wrote that this is supposed to be in a V5 source book, so it should be pretty much canon for V5...

I missed his post the last time I posted.  But since it's part of the V5 lore then that sucks.  I also did not like the idea of having E and Lily breakup.  Well hopefully he won't turn up as a vampire in Seattle when Bloodlines 2 is released.

All I get from that is that Arthur was a vampire; not that he had a doppelganger.

This can be easily debunked by using Auspex on him.

I didn't say I believed it (I don't) - it just doesn't add up.  It's just that the link Highwayman667 provided seems to say he was  vampire,  but I don't get where people think he had a double from that.
