- "The Authority has overextended its reach. They command us to identify with our prey. Preach to us to love our food. This isn't some fucking romance novel – this is war. Do you think humans will ever tolerate vampires? If we kneel to them, they will cut off our heads. Synthetic blood? Honestly – we should be bottling their blood! You could been something, Eric. If I had made you instead of Godric, you would be a vampire of legend by now. I could have taught you what my maker taught me: the way of the Sanguinista. The true path of the vampire!"
Remus was "made" vampire over 2,000 years ago by a Roman slave trader, who would also turn Godric, although it is unclear which "brother" was created first. Before being turned Remus was branded with an intricate series of tribal tattoos which mirrored those of Godric, and would later insist on branding his own numerous progenies with similar markings.
Remus once served as a General in the Army of the Holy Roman Empire, and fought in the Siege of Neuss, where he encountered his "sibling's" progeny Eric Northman.
While performing under is stage name "Impaler" at an underground punk rock nightclub in London Remus encountered a young vampire named Bill Compton. Instantly recognizing him for what he really was, and praising his fake Camden accent, the two vampires struck up a friendship which rapidly fell apart when Bill declined to become Remus' new "drinking buddy."
