White Wolf Wiki

Jan Puttanesca is a Hecata introduced in Cults of the Blood Gods.


You’re fast. I’ll give you that. But when I pull this trigger, this incendiary round is going to move at eight hundred meters per second. And nobody, living or dead, is fast enough to dodge it.

Mortal Days

Seeing an opportunity to serve both Germany and the world, Jan left school to enlist in the Bundeswehr. After five grueling years, he joined the elite Kommando Spezialkräfte (KSK). He fought primarily in Kunduz, a northern region of Afghanistan, participating in several battles and earning various honors. After he left military service, he returned to Munich and did a series of odd jobs before attracting the attention of a German-Italian Hecata named Niklas Puttanesca. Seeing the need for additional muscle within the newly formed Clan of Death, Niklas adopted, educated, and eventually Embraced Jan.

Kindred Nights

Jan adapted quickly to his immortal life, using the skills he learned as a soldier to benefit the Hecata. In 2017, Mother Anja sent Niklas, Jan, and Heather Milliner to Venice on her behalf. The younger Hecata were unaware of the particulars at the time, but she had tasked Niklas with locating a crypt belonging to the Giovanni.

One night while in Venice, Niklas disappeared and never returned. Jan spent several weeks trying to locate him before Mother Anja called him and Heather back to Munich. While he has no leads to follow, he remains committed to finding his sire. In the meantime, he looks after Heather and does what he must to protect the Clan of Death.


Jan prefers streetwear to blend in with the twenty-somethings of Munich. This often includes sneakers or boots, jeans, and a black t-shirt. He has crystal blue eyes and a semi-permanent scowl.
