Russel Hammond is just some kid from Brazil who loves the Classic World of Darkness.
How can I put you at ease? Shall we begin like David Copperfield? "I was born...I grew up".
Or shall we begin when I was born to darkness, as I call it.
That's where we should start, don't you think?
According to some accounts, Russel might be an incredibly powerful Ventrue methuselah who pretends to like role playing games just to establish a herd of nerds - and also dig for some worthy ghoul material.
His name was not originated from the movie "Almost Famous", as it is much older than that (45 BC, to be exact). Derived from a much older name, it is spelled with only one "L". Therefore it's Russel, not Russell (glad we got that sorted out).
