I don't fear LaCroix, nor do I give a damn about his jackboot sycophants and court jesters. Let them all come to Hollywood! It would be a battle sequence worthy of
While he was the producer of Negative Zero, a film which proved to be incredibly successful because of the performance of Ash, Isaac noticed that his young protege was partying too much with drugs and booze. Unfortunately for Ash, he overdosed one night and forced Isaac to Embrace him in order to keep his artistic flame intact. That would prove to be wrong, because Ash shunned Isaac, hating him for transforming the young man into a vampire. Abrams then gave Ash a club, Asp Hole, a "shadow of his former glory", in order to keep him happy.
At some point, Isaac became the Baron of Hollywood, having close relations with Anarch Kindred such as Nines Rodriguez or Damsel. After the Camarilla's arrival in Los Angeles, Abrams and Sebastian LaCroix made a non-aggression pact, as long as no Camarilla vampire interferes with the Anarch's business.
Events of Bloodlines
Isaac was present at the execution of the sire of the protagonist as many other powerful Kindred in the city. He would later meet the protagonist in Hollywood, when they come to him seeking his help in finding the Nosferatu. Isaac then voiced his interest in a tape that made the Nosferatu flee in terror. After the player delivered the tape to Isaac, the Baron pointed them to a house in Los Angeles' hills, where the protagonist would find out that the tape is the creation of a Tzimisce named Andrei.
Isaac would also send the player to solve a problem with a Gargoyle that haunted the Asian Theater. Should the protagonist decide to persuade the Gargoyle into working with Isaac against the Camarilla, the Baron would be very impressed.
Personality and Traits
Unlike other Anarchs, Isaac is more civil and tolerant, befitting his Toreador blood. He is also very compassionate, as he decided to save Ash's life and then help him cope with his new existence as Kindred, although he was quite unsuccessful. Isaac is very dedicated to the Anarch cause, but he doesn't want war with the Camarilla.
Even though he isn't her sire, Velvet Velour views him as a great person, a patron of the arts and the father she never had. Even though Isaac loathes the presence of the Nosferatu, as do many other Kindred, he is willing to let them live in the Warrens beneath his city, no matter what sect they are part of, as long as they don't interfere with the independence of Hollywood.
Isaac is also a traditionalist, as he demanded a tribute from the fledgling (in his case, a videotape) in order to give them the information they needed.
If the protagonist were a fellow Toreador and also being respectful to Isaac without ever causing him to be angry, he will compliment them and let them know he is impressed by their work and proud for what they did for their clan before giving them his gift, along with an additional note reading "The Barony of Hollywood appreciated your services".
If the protagonist made it clear to Isaac that their loyalty lies in the Camarilla, he will also advice them not to waste it in LaCroix.

- Going the Way of Kings
- Having seen the whole tape, Isaac decides to send the fledgling to investigate. He recognizes the building shown in the tape, a mansion in the Hollywood hills.
