Voice in the head Orton was also a bit dark and psychotic as was Mordecai. It did not disappear all of a sudden but did not flourish as it did back then.
I was a Gangrel mark during the AE too. The music, the look, the bloodbaths, everything just worked. I think they should have done more with him. I feel like they sort of dropped the ball on the whole Brood idea.
Mankind is also a great gimmick. Its a character that was confusing, you didn't understand his motivations, he's ugly. apparently some type of hunchback, with one ear playing with rats, it was amazing.
