Dr. Vitale (born Vitale Valentin Sangiovanni, May 26, 1928) is an Italian-American vampire of the Sangiovanni bloodline of the Mekhet clan, Invictus member, unlicensed physician, amateur occultist, and mobster affiliated with the Westies criminal organization. He currently shares the Domain of Hell’s Kitchen, New York with a coterie of four fellow Vassals, under the lordship of Salvaro, the Regent of Midtown West and the Upper West Side.
Dr. Vitale was the third of five children of first generation Italian immigrants, who settled in Chicago’s “Little Italy” neighborhood during World War I. Despite his family’s impoverished condition, Vitale was an excellent student and graduated high school with a 4.0 GPA. His academic excellence earned him a scholarship to Loyola University Chicago, and the interest of Sangiovanni vampires, who subtly nudged him toward studying medicine and the occult. During his junior year at Loyola he met Maryanne Whitney, a freshman from Mississippi whom he would marry three years later.
After earning his undergraduate degree from Loyola in 1950, he went on to study medicine at Loyola’s Stritch School of Medicine. After earning his medical degree in 1953, Dr. Vitale went on to start a private practice pediatrics practice, father three children, and sexually abuse his daughter and an unknown number of female patients. In Winter of 1963, his wife discovered that he had been sexually abusing their daughter. To this day, she has never spoken of it.
In Summer of 1966, one of his victims filed sexual assault charges, which were later dropped under mysterious circumstances. The AMA, suspicious of Dr. Vitale’s behavior, launched their own investigation. When it lead them to his family, they quickly ended their investigation and revoked his medical license with little explanation. His family told him not to appeal the decision, and found him work as an unlicensed physician for the Chicago Outfit. Shortly after starting his new job, Maryanne took their kids and moved back to her family in Mississippi. She then filed for divorce. In 1979, more of Dr. Vitale’s victims came forward, but this time no mysterious circumstances intervened.
Beginning in 1979 Dr. Vitale served two years of six consecutive 4-to-15-year prison sentences for six counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child. He was murdered in his cell by an unknown assailant in 1981. After Dr. Vitale’s burial, Alphonse Sangiovanni had Dr. Vitale’s corpse exhumed and transported to the Sangiovanni Manor in Brooklyn, New York. Alphonse then removed Dr. Vitale’s genitals, embraced him, and threatened to destroy him if he ever found out that Dr. Vitale had sexually abused any more children.
