George was a soldier who fought in the Battle of Hastings, and was turned into a vampire through the most common type of accidental transformation: battlefield excess. He was setting up camp with twenty other soldiers incliding his brother when a nomad attacked them. The vampire had killed at least 12 of them, inlcuding his brother, and was feeding off George when he became fully satisfied. When George woke up a few days later as a vampire, he was horrified by what he had become, but attempted to live with it at first.
In his early years as a vampire, George loved the idea of taunting humans by making them believe that he was a prince from Hell. He led on humans in love with the occult, asking them to sacrifice everything they held most dear in exchange for his supernatural assistance, he preferred to see how far humans would go for their goals even though he had the power to take it all by force, along with his potent gift to control their decisions anyway.
