Lemar Isaiah Jackson could tell you a thing or two about growing up hard. His father: shot in the back and killed while trying to escape with a neighbour’s stolen television. Lemar was only seven. His mother: struggled to keep things somewhat together but rent and bills were always being juggled with a painkiller addiction. His old lady practically lived on percacets. But hey, this is just life when you’re an inner city kid from the streets of San Francisco.
Before going any further, let’s just say don’t feel sorry for him. Lemar learned early on how to use his anger to excel at whatever he put his mind to. High grades in school coupled with being the captain of every sports team he joined meant that when Lemar graded he was accepted immediately into the academy. As was almost expected at this point, Lemar took to police work with a real tenacity. He hit the BEAT as a young gun, complete with a hero’s aspirations.
- He’d learn soon enough though.
The years on the force were long. Lemar spent the first few trying to live the white knight lie. His assigned partner, Ronald “Ronnie” Marks was a big influence on him. Eventually though, the job got to him. First it was just about getting convictions to stick, but that soon turned to bribes being accepted and eventually even being on the take. The scum he’d tried to lock up, were fast becoming his closest allies. I.A. had an open file on him that was quickly being padded by the week.
One night, while responding to what seemed like a routine APB, Lemar found himself in an all-out foot race with a Kindred. He didn’t know it at the time, but Beau Sheehan would become his Sire, damning him to the Dansé.
The year is now 2023 and Lemar has been a creature of the night, a vampire, for a little over two years…
