Vedetta Auditore is the eldest son of Leonardo and was the sole pup of his litter. Born into an unstable mateship of sorts, on the Barbados port where his parents ship set anchor. Fussed by his mother and allowed all too much free reign by his father, the Auditore male quickly developed an ego and over confidence within himself as a result.

As his mother, Iniga fell pregnant once more, he took up the role of protector and is fiercely protective over his only other full blood sibling, Salvatrice. Inevitably, his parents split apart, with the Auditore male following his father out to Italy once more, where he delved into the highly more civilized culture that was present in those parts.

Time passed and once more he found himself travelling back across the ocean, the group settling in Nova Scotia and splitting, going their separate ways and pursuing their own lives and interest. After hearing of Sapient's foundation, Vedetta was not long behind to join their ranks, proving himself adapt at leather working, hunting and showing a strong interest in Anatomy.

During August 2015, Vedetta was present at the ball when his younger half-sibling was murdered.


Vedetta was a member of Sapient, ranked as a Sodalis up until his untimely death during the Familia Sugit Conflict. He held the Metier of Leatherworker and had several budding relations within the pack.

2.  Personality

Vedetta is a man with a lot of energy and talent; to which he actively puts to use and constantly works to build upon. Due to his collie nature, he picks most things up quickly, though only leatherworking, hunting, and anatomy have held him for long and are where his talents truly shine through. Tied to his past and pleasant times spent with his father, he is respectful and caring towards animals with a purpose. This is evident in the way he clearly enjoys taking care of his horse, Veloce.

Growing up often travelling and in a variety of cultural types, Vedetta has a deep affinity for the wild world, and enjoys no greater peace than being on his own, hunting in the woods with his bow and wits. He has a deep interest in being civilized though, influenced by his family and his time spent in Italy, this has also led to the development of and active expression of dislike towards signs of savagery or brutishness. He considers himself far more than an animal, and believes that some higher purpose gifted them with being luperci, and being greater than other animals.

Practical and efficient, Vedetta is not one to waste time of futile pursuits or to drag out a hunt for the fun of things; he is methodical in the way he conducts himself, even with the smaller things, indicating a calulating and intellectual mind. Additionally, he is notably ambitious in regards to both rank and wealth, and that gets in the way of his generally good hearted nature at times. Like many of his family, he is a perfectionist, and enjoys making beautiful things with his leather working and takes great pride in his pieces, thus his work is rarely fast, but always exquisite.
