Massimo del Portenza

Search for 'Massimo del Portenza' on Amazon


Bio:
Husband of Erica Portenza in the early 19th century, father of Luca del Portenza.

In 1818, Massimo willingly offered up his 6-year old son for sacrifice to the Carbonari, a Spanish cult he was a member of. The cult's leader, Paolo Priora, knew of Luca's immortality (which was inherited from his mother), and Luca's sacrifice would grant Paolo youth and immortality. The ritual went wrong, however. Paolo instead died, and Luca's once-gentle soul was corrupted by Paolo's evil.

In 1829, upon Luca's 17th birthday, Massimo recruited Luca into the Carbonari at the behest of Paolo's son and heir, Stefano Priora. Upon initiation into the cult, Luca slaughtered Massimo and the entire cult, save Stefano.
