Thistle was showed up in the vampire scene around the end of the 70’s. Orphaned, recognized by no one, he eked by for years at the fringe of Camarilla society, learning the barest bones of cammie politics and the simple truth that he would never be anything or worth anything to them. It’s unclear when he joined the Anarch movement specifically, but he has shown his commitment to the cause repeatedly in conflict with the Camarilla and the Sabbat. Initially he worked within the territory carved out by the late Baron Douglass Ross in Jefferson Parish (New Orleans West), he followed Baron Ross in leading the Anarchs of the Parish.

Never the most popular of Barons, he has been instrumental in keeping the local movement going at key times.

When Prince Alexander of Baton Rouge started violating the treaty of Thorns, Thistle joined the forefront of those challenging the Prince for control of the state capital. In the final confrontation between the Anarchs and the Prince, the ingenuity of Thistle and another Caitiff named Billy was able to turn the tide. Main force was failing, but Thistle and Billy forced the Toreador Prince to choose: loose forever the last of the art created by his true love (who had only recently fallen), or abandon his city. That night Thistle became Baron of the Free State of Baton Rouge. More recently he has stepped down from the position of Baron, as other draws to his time keep him occupied, and his children Akila has been Baroness for several months.
