Lenoir came to London during the Anarch Revolt on orders by his sire, hoping to find shelter from his raving clan members. Initially, he was distrusted and regarded as a potential spy of the apostate Clan and only Mithras' direct protection saved him from destruction.
Over time, Lenoir managed to insert himself into Kindred society with a combination of humor and keeping himself above the intrigues of the London Kindred so that no one had a reason to have a grudge against him. He began to patronize young Kindred who came into the city alone and without a guide, much to the annoyance of Valerius, Mithras' seneschal. He also became quite adept of integrating ex-Sabbat members into Camarilla structures and managed to destroy nearly all spies sent along with them, earning the respect of the vampire community. When a pack of Lasombra came to London to diablerize him, nearly a dozen Kindred worked together to protect Lenoir.
