Previous Lives

John Carver

Lawrence Van Alen was Schuyler's grandfather in this cycle. Lawrence became estranged from the New York Coven after he intimated doubt in Michael's vanquishing of the Silver Bloods. He left for Venice and does not return until Schuyler convinces him to come back to New York with her and help her.

Lawrence is an Enmortal, so he does not progress through the normal vampire cycles of expression, retaining one physical shell throughout the centuries. He has extensive shapeshifting abilities that allow him to change his physical features, though he cannot perform the mutatio like other vampires. Schuyler's abilities are similar to his in this respect.
