Fernando was a wererat and the son of the Master of Beasts. He was tall, slender, dark-skinned and wore nothing but a pair of black satin pants with silver embroidery along the legs. Fernando came to St. Louis along with his father and the rest of the Council delegation. He was not powerful enough to dominate Rafael and wanted his father to torture him. He also abused Hannah and raped Sylvie and Vivian.
Anita forced Padma to trade his son's life for his own, and Fernando was taken by the werewolves and was tortured and killed by Sylvie, as revenge for the rape. She sometimes wears some of his bones.
