Information Known by Kindred Society
A recent resident of New York City, Asira comes to America from India. Although only a recent resident of the United States, he has grown familiar with the customs and covenants of the West from his travels throughout Europe and the United States over the years.
Asira is a known mercenary for hire, working for boons, money, retainers, and weapons. Although a great deal of his history lies on the continents of Europe and Asia, the demon has recently been making a name for himself in the United States. In recent years he has been seen working with luminary acolyte Felipe Saunier, and he has often been retained by the well-known Angelo DiMilan. Some know him for a public stand-off in Cleveland with Urvi, and others for murdering Christian Anderson.
Asira dresses in a fine black suit and is known to be very quiet, well-mannered, and completely vicious.
Quotes From Other Kindred
"If he could have, he would have salted the earth behind him." -- Sunda, on Asira's participation in the Bib-Ghar massacre.
"I met this bloke once. Sent shivers up an' down my spine 'e did. One of the most interestin' lads I met in my trip to Chicago 'e was." -- "Tom", on his first meeting with Asira.
"Asira and Sunda are both Rakshasa. They are not Nosferatu, or rather would prefer not being called Nosferatu or being affiliated with them. They are both deadly, and I encourage you to stay clear of them." -- The Rt. Rev. Luther Fried on Sunda and Asira
"To be fair, he has a business acumen that is unrivaled, I'm not sure what he'll do with all these favors, but he's certainly accruing them at a frightening rate."- Ava deGuise
"We can't call a bloodhunt on him, because nobody here can fulfill it." -- Anonymous Philadelphia resident

"I have little use for the childe. I have less use for the sire."- Jason Landers
"The rate by which you accumulate such measures of prestation among the damned both near and far from our borders is nothing shy of extraordinary. Indeed while I know better than to advocate the tenets of the First Estate to you; I must say that you would give our best a run for their proverbial money in the refined acumen of acquiring pounds of flesh and pints of blood from so stingy a race as Kindred." -- Alder Barone Lorenzo Gambara
"It would not surprise me in the slightest if he and Miss Mae were involved. He is precisely her type: well-dressed, well-mannered, and above all, clearly hazardous." (Overheard at a DeKalb gathering)

"[Sunda]'s just trying to get a rise out of you and establish himself as the baddest ass in the room. Asira, on the other hand, doesn't have to say anything in order to make it clear that he thinks of more unthinkable atrocities to commit in one night than most people do in their entire lives." - Helen Cayhill
"A fellow dealer of death...albeit more honest than I. And more pure in his purpose." - Simon Cassio
"I don't find him frightening at all. I think he's quite beautiful. He's honest about what he is when you look at him. How can that be anything other than alluring?" - Carissa Megaharet, overheard at a ball held by Dr. Thaddeus Grey
"So, he's a hideous Nosferatu... who kills as a vocation... and has a creepy voice... How then does he stand out from the rest of his blood?" - Simon bar Kochba
"I really wonder what blood looks like on that shade of green. We should have dinner at some point and find out." - Caleb Barrow
