Dr. Douglas Netchurch
Kindred, Malkavian, Camarilla
From the White Wolf Wiki:
Dr. Douglas Netchurch is a vampire of the Malkavian clan, well-known worldwide as an expert on vampire physiology. Born in America in the 19th century, he excelled in his medical studies and was considered a genius even before his Embrace. He went to Europe after the outbreak of World War I, assisting in the trenches, and it was there, in 1915, that his brilliant mind caught the attention of Trimeggian, who was involved in medical matters himself.
Operating out of a facility in Research Triangle, North Carolina, Dr. Netchurch has firmly established himself as the World of Darkness’ foremost authority on the physiology and hematology of the Kindred. Among other achievements, he has added to his sire’s catalogue of vampiric Disciplines, identified techniques to simulate the Insight possessed by the Thin Blooded, and greatly expanded Camarilla knowledge about both thin bloods and ghouls. He also popularised a standard for measuring the potency of an individuals Vitae, the “Vitae Efficacy Unit” or VEU, though this scale was developed by a Tremere Professor.
