His crown lit up the way as we moved slowly
Past the wondering eyes of the ones that were left behind
Though far away, though far away, though far away
We're still the same, we're still the same, we're still the same
Howling ghosts they reappear
In mountains that are stacked with fear
But you're a king and I'm a lionheart
King and Lionheart - Of Monsters and Men
Knight Templar and cousin to Jean-Marc d'Harfleur, Gilbert was destined to become the Baron of Harfleur following in familial custom to pledge himself to serve as a knight where his path crossed with Federico DiPadua before their mutual embraces. Sired by the cruel Lady Justania after he spurned her affections, Gilbert brought his sense of valor and chivalry with him into Kindred society. With his cousin, Federico, and Lilika the four of them sought to protect humanity from the brutality of Cainites before the foundation of the Camarilla where they furthered their cause as the first archons.
A collector of ethical antiquities and artwork, Gilbert continues to this day his connection with the Knights Templar and their organization, acting as mentor to Charlie Van Rensselaer, Whiskey Van Rensselaer, Lovecraft Maldonado, Oliver Bouchard, Silas Barrows, and Byron Valdis.
It is unknown whether or not Gilbert recalls the events of the Apocalypse.
