A well-travelled vampire, known for the medical operations he performs in public view of congregated Sabbat (in emulation of the 19th century surgical style), Pangbourne ranks as a voluntary member of the Sabbat as of the 20th century. He threw off the Camarilla’s yoke after Anne Bowesley declared his practices uncivilized. Pangbourne obsesses over delivering the first vampire baby.
Pangbourne methodically arranges carnal trysts between thin-blooded vampires, ghouls, and kine, mixing the participants as it suits him to fulfil his objective. His ties to a plague-spreading brotherhood of Cainites are unsubstantiated.
