Bruce is a former member of the Vampire Hunting Society. He and his friends, Daniel Foster and Vince Tidwell, found that many of the orders coming to them didn't make sense to them, so they defected. In Paris, they saw Genevieve and Charlotte exit the Morrison Institute and tailed them, trying to protect them from the society. When the three friends were confronted by Tariq, they never backed down, even when Maksim and all the other ancients fed from them. Tariq let them join his security detail.
