Troilus was a reclusive metamorphosist whose many mouths made him unpleasant to mortal eyes. As he has diablerised his own sire, Troilus was tasked by the Sabbat leadership to help his ancient grandsire to catch up with the modern nights. The methuselah had just woken up from a 700-year-old torpor and needed assistance to learn english and spanish languages, as well as to learn about the scientific novelties that took place since the last time he was awake.
To that end, Troilus sent his own childe, Ezra, to serve as a communication link between the two. Through letters, Troilus showed great contempt for the younger generations, and treated his ancestor contemptibly as well - speaking to him in familiar tones, to the methuselah's great displeasure. His ancestor sent him many advices through their correspondence, however, he vowed to test Troilus himself to see if he was truly worthy of his Blood.
