Rule of Three
Vampire financier and dealmaker
Maximilian is one of Melbourne’s elder vampires, all of whom came to Australia from Europe in the 19th and early 20th century. There are tensions between these elders and the young breed of local vampires, who resent the rule of the foreign ‘nobles’, but Maximilian does his best to remain removed from these issues.
Instead, he’s carved out an existence as a broker and procurer of secrets, oddities and supernatural resources, buying and selling through a network of secret suppliers and customers. Maximilian’s trade has gathered him a useful fortune, and he now seeks to cement that by investing in the building of the Arcadia Luxury Apartments in Balwyn, a building designed by Percival Ashcroft.
