Much of the story of Menippus is recorded by Katherine of Montpellier. Menippus was Embraced in ancient Mycenae. He survived the power struggles of the local Cainites long enough to flee to Rome and later left the Eternal City with his brood to join his Clanmate Michael in Constantinople. He was still present in the city during the islamic conquest and afterwards, his fate becomes unknown.
