His name is Sebastiano Lorenz Valensuera y Ramirez, but he calls himself Don Sebastiano. His codename is The Don.[1] He is a junior at Whateley, an Ex-4, Esp-3 who lived in Melville with Cavalier as his roommate/slave. He has far too many enemies to list, given his habit of being as cruel as he possibly can to everyone around him.


Don Sebastiano affects a nobility he doesn't deserve by prepending the "Don" title to his name, as in Spanish nobility -- but the other usage of "Don", meaning a criminal lord, is more descriptive of his personality.

He likes to harass people (he calls it "pranking" them), and he's quite good at figuring out how to manipulate people and the social matrix.

He has violet eyes and is at least seventeen years old as of October 18, 2006.[2]


Don Sebastiano is an exemplar-4 and a psi (telepath)-3. During the whole of 2006, he had most of the school believing he had some mental trick for completely subjugating another person's will without leaving traces. In reality, he's not that good; he is, however, very crafty and skillful with his telepathic talents, being a master of manipulating people by subtly influencing their thoughts and emotions. That's how he made Hekate fall in love with him to the point of her giving him control of Cavalier and Skybolt, and letting him enjoy the unearned reputation. He came very close to splitting Team Kimba by manipulating their insecurities.[3]

The Don's FactionEdit

After his deposition as Alpha, The Don has been gathering together a faction composed of deposed Alphas, creating a new power base with plans to leverage his way back to his former station. There are others clustering about him, foolishly thinking he'll remember their help.


Fall 2006Edit


During his sophomore year he was one of Freya's hit men in the Alphas. Hekate used a mind slave spell on two rivals, Cavalier and Skybolt, over Christmas 2005; the fallout had everyone scared to cross him since they arranged for people to think he had an undetectable mind control power. In the 2006-2007 school year Kodiak should have been the alpha Alpha, but he let The Don and Hekate take over.

Until the Breakfast Brawl, he had Ms. Hartford running interference (Alphas don't get detention.) After that, Ms. Hartford was removed from any disciplinary hearings concerning the Alphas.[8]

He assigned Solange to do a revenge strike against Team Kimba. It didn't work.[9]

He attempted to get control of Fey by manipulating Team Kimba, and particularly Chaka, into splitting up. Chaka detects his manipulation, and he gets detention for misuse of telepathic coercion.[3]

He tried to get his revenge against Chaka by framing her for an unjustified assault.[10]

He had Hekate attempt to trap Fey and Chaka in a causal time warp, setting himself up as the rescuer.[11]

It turned out that the mind slave spell had to be renewed annually, and Hekate flubbed the renewal by attempting to do Fey at the same time.[12]

When Skybolt and Cavalier came back, the spell had worn off, and Hekate had been expelled. They beat up The Don, leaving him in the hospital for most of the Winter 2007 term. Kodiak and Tansy kicked him out of the Alphas after discovering some evidence he'd recorded on a DVD.[13][14]

He starts to plot to regain control of the Alphas.[15]

He's contacted by Hekate's Master, and passes some information to The Necromancer. While doing it, he decides that the only way he's going to survive is to find out who Hekate's Master really is, and turn him in to the school administration.[16]

He gets some very poor quality info from one of his stooges, adds Icer to his plans, and then decides to use Reach as a cats-paw to flush out Hekate's Master.[6]

He has Ringo put sophisticated call tracers on his phone.[5] It works; now he knows who Hekate's Master is, or at least so he believes.[17]
