In life, Don Sidonia had been the commander-in-chief who lost the {{w|Spanish Armada}} to the English, due to his own lack of initiative and self-confidence, but in no small part the failure of the fleet had been found in a direct order given by King {{w|Philip II of Spain|Philip II}} of [[Spain (WOD)|Spain]]. Hence, the [[Lasombra]] [[elders]] decided to use the Admiral as an object lesson to the king.

In life, Don Sidonia had been the commander-in-chief who lost the {{w|Spanish Armada}} to the English, due to his own lack of initiative and self-confidence. But not a small part for the failure of the fleet had been found in the order of King {{w|Philip II of Spain|Philip II}} of [[Spain (WOD)|Spain]], so several [[Lasombra]] [[elders]] decided to use the admiral as an object lesson to the king.
   
Sidonia was [[Embrace (VTM)|Embraced]] and presented in a starved state before King Philip II, the slender hand of the creature's [[sire]] the only thing holding him back. For the next six hours, Doña Beatriz proceeded to calmly explain the basics on strategy and leadership to the frightened monarch, while the former Admiral howled for blood the entire time.

He was [[Embrace (VTM)|Embraced]] and presented in a near-starved state before the Philip II, while his [[sire]] held him back and and explained the basics of leadership to the frightened king while the former duke of Medina Sidonia howled for blood. Several elders of the Clan wanted to kill the don afterwards, but his sire intervened, feeling pity for him and instructed him in the ways of the [[Clan (VTM)|Clan]] and the [[Sabbat]].
   
Doña Beatriz and her peers originally planned to destroy the Admiral right after the lesson was over, but the Doña felt guilt for using a Spaniard of noble blood in such a manner. She then decided to spare him, and gave the Don a proper training in the ways of the [[Clan (VTM)|Clan]] and also in the ways of the [[Sabbat]].

In unlife, the former duke of Medina Sidonia quickly proved himself a brilliant tactician, determined to erase the shame from his defeat in the Channel. His great success as a Lasombra granted his sire ascension into the ranks of [[Les Amies Noir]] and himself great prestige for war efforts coordinated by him against [[New York City (WOD)|New York]] and [[Manila (WOD)|Manila]].

The Don has maintained his hatred against [[Britain (WOD)|Britain]] and strives to see its destruction. He also has a grudge against a [[Ventrue (VTM)|Ventrue]] named [[Parma]], who was a former mercenary who deserted the Armada and joined the British.
