Cassanova — first book seen in: Claimed by Shadow

Introduction Edit

Casanova is a vampire that is a host to an incubus. He isn't the historical Casanova, but his incubus once possessed the man, so he adopted the name. He was one Tony's senior vampires, in charge of the Decadent Dreams spa. In the beginning of the series, Tony left him in charge of his Las Vegas operations including Dante's Casino, when he recently disappeared.[1] This is the place where Cassandra Palmer later resides.

Biography Edit

He was originally from a Spanish family of good background and no money. He was changed into a vampire, and then shortly thereafter, reached an agreement with an incubs who possessed him and taught him strategies for getting ahead. Since said incubus had once also possessed the historical Casanova, Carlos took the man's name as his own, hoping it would help his rise in the vampire world (as they are as swayed by fame as anyone else).

His incubus hadn't realized until he had already possessed the attractive Spanish don that he'd actually took up residence in a baby vampire—one too young to know how to evict him. The two reached an understanding. The centuries of practice Casanova had in seduction helped the vampire feed easily, and having a body that wouldn't age and die on him suited Casanova. When Tony decided to organize the incubi of the States into a moneymaking deal for him, Casanova was chosen to run it. [8]
