Louis turns his back on him in pity and disgust. This version of events, however, is also refuted by Lestat, who made no mention of contact with Louis in that era, though he had been visited by Armand and freely admits that his memory of this period is fragmented.
Louis and Lestat reunite in the s with a new understanding, only to be caught up and briefly separated again in the events that are detailed in The Queen of the Damned , though in later books Lestat refers to Louis as his lover.
Lestat has a disdain for rules and order, and states, in The Queen of the Damned , that he has always had to be his own teacher. He openly disregards and refuses to show fear to Armand, the leader of the Paris coven, even when confronted with the possibility of execution.
The only immortal Lestat appears to openly respect and defer to is Marius. Lestat seeks him out as a mentor in the late 18th century, leaving him messages across Europe and Asia until Marius decides to reveal himself.
While Lestat eagerly learns from Marius, he also openly breaches many of the rules Marius seeks to impress upon him, such as the prohibition on revealing himself to mortals.
Such behavior inspires Marius to refer to Lestat as "the damnedest creature" and nickname him "the Brat Prince. Lestat is entirely responsible for the epic triumph and tragedy told in The Queen of the Damned , after he presents himself to the world through his autobiography and formation of a rock band, singing vampire secrets.
His songs waken Akasha, the Queen of the Damned, from her sleep, and she takes Lestat on as her lover while she enacts a horrible plan to take over the world.
This adventure forces Lestat to think of things and people other than himself for one of the first times in his long life, and the adventure changes him forever, forcing him to begin fighting for a kind of redemption—though, as displayed in The Tale of the Body Thief , Lestat remains his old, devilish self, revelling in his identity as the Brat Prince.
After the mysterious and mystical events of Memnoch the Devil , Lestat falls into a vampiric sleep from which the Mayfair witch Merrick eventually manages to wake him, forging a bond between them.
After the spiritual, emotional and mystical changes within Lestat during his adventures in the heavenly and hellish realms he visited, Lestat became a legend amongst the remaining vampires, taking control of New Orleans and killing any fledgling vampires who killed mortals in his city.
While it is largely due to his actions that the Talamasca—an order of scholars who study the supernatural world but vow to never interfere in it—declare a kind of war on vampires, it is also due to his efforts that no lives are taken over the course of the dispute between the two groups.
Lestat is sought out by a desperate Tarquin Blackwood in the novel Blackwood Farm to help him with a problem the young vampire feels only the legendary Lestat can help him with.
Though Lestat suffers losses from this adventure, he falls somewhat in love with Quinn, and the two stay close after their adventure together reaches its conclusion.
Rowan eventually asks Lestat to turn her into a vampire but, despite their feelings toward one another, he painfully chose not to, because she is a guiding figure in the Mayfair family and he cannot take her away from it or from her faithful and loving husband Michael.
Lestat appears as a major character in both motion picture adaptations of The Vampire Chronicles novels.
Lestat became the name and focus of a gothic rock band in Cleveland, Ohio , signed by Jevan Records who split up in Lestat has since reformed in Monster Prom features Liam de Lioncourt, one of the six main love interests in this visual novel video game.

The Vampire Chronicles character. Tom Cruise as Lestat Lestat stands at six feet, with thick rather curly blonde hair that appears white under fluorescent lighting.
He has grey eyes that can absorb the colors blue or violet from surfaces around them. His nose is fairly short and narrow, while his mouth is well shaped 'though slightly too large for his face', his skin deathly white.
The only feature that proves he is not human is his glazed fingernails which give the impression that they are made of glass.
Lestat epitomizes an aristocratic vampire in 18 th century Paris. A bold, enthusiastic and defiant being, who delights in his own arrogance and conceited attitude, Lestat carries himself with the aura of richness and entitlement that comes only from a privileged upbringing, gaining him the affectionate title "the Brat Prince" by his vampire elders, a title he takes great pleasure in.
Egotistic, Lestat is greatly concerned with fashion, taking the time to pause mid-narrative merely to remind the reader what he is wearing, and as a singer and musician who plays both the piano and violin more than reasonably well, he relishes the attention that comes from performing on stage to a crowd, which began in his mortal life as an actor and continued into his formation of a rock band called The Vampire Lestat which he formed with a group of humans in the s.
Having been illiterate as a human, after becoming a vampire Lestat learned how to read first in French and then in English, developing a great love of literature that made him quite the academic and a fondness for colloquialisms.
He chooses to write his novels in English and notes that despite his French accent he speaks English "like a cross between a boatman and Sam Spade".
It can be argued that Lestat is far from being a monster as he was painted in Interview with the Vampire.
In his autobiography The Vampire Lestat he is quick to defend his behavior, repeatedly attempting to convince people that he is hardly the monster previous narrators have portrayed him to be.
In much of the book and in The Queen of the Damned , he is presented as a fun-loving hero who even gallantly leads the charge against the vampire queen Akasha.
Lestat is a creature capable of love, being first portrayed in the series as a bisexual who is attracted to whoever interests him. He spent most of his early experiences with male lovers and spending his time in the company of men, because as he admits men in the past centuries were more interesting than women and secondly he is frightened of women, finding them extremely distracting.
Over time Lestat developed a greater love for humanity than ever before despite his savage relationship with mankind, and so viewed his life as "the Savage Garden", filled with beauty and death.
Lestat is capable of showing concern for the welfare of others, exhibiting a strong altruistic nature at several stages in the series, for instance, upon being made a vampire, he sent large gifts to his family and friends, purchased the theatre where he once worked and settled the debts of his old manager, Renaud.
Later, following the murder of his brothers and family in the French Revolution, Lestat stepped forward to care for his ailing father, the only surviving member of his family, despite their hate filled relationship.
Lestat also displays a moral inclination, frequently hunting evildoers instead of feeding on innocent victims, although he does not always abide by this rule.
He was the youngest of three sons although his mother had given birth to four other boys and one girl--none of whom survived childhood. His father was the Marquis as well as a blind man.
Being the youngest of three, Lestat had no prospects; any land or money that his father left behind after he died would likely go to his eldest brother, Augustin, and his family.
At the age of twelve, Lestat was being educated in a monastery and decided he wished to enter the order as a brother.
Of course, his father and brother completely dismissed the idea and not only dragged him away from the monastery but ended his education.
When Lestat reached the age of sixteen, a band of travelling Italian actors came to the village performing a play which involved two lovers: Isabella and Lelio.
Lestat absolutely adored the play and took on the part of Lelio and loved performing so much that he decided to leave with the actors when they took leave of his village.
Unfortunately, when he awoke not many days later, he found his brothers waiting for him and all the actors gone.
When Lestat was twenty he could only read and write his own name and a few prayers; at the age of twenty-one, the villagers come to him complaining about wolves in the area.
Lestat, feeling no fear, goes out to kill the wolves with his two mastiffs and mare. He succeeds in killing the eight wolves and as a consequence meets a young man named Nicolas de Lenfent , a violinist.
Lestat's dying mother, Gabrielle , encourages Lestat to start a friendship with Nicolas and later she encourages Lestat to leave with Nicolas, who Lestat calls Nicki, and go to Paris, as she wants to die knowing her son is free.
Lestat gets a job in a theatre in Paris but not as an actor but as a backstage assistant. Months later, he is given the chance to go on stage and then offered a job as a professional actor, due to the audience's initial adoration of him.
Lestat grows even more popular with both the audiences and the critics who describe him as, "the blond-haired rogue who steals the hearts of the ladies in the third and fourth acts.
Soon after Lestat is made into an immortal vampire, his maker commits suicide by throwing himself into a fire, leaving Lestat on his own with little knowledge of what he is and the powers he possesses.
As his inheritance of being his only fledgling, Magnus left him riches of gold and other treasures to use as he wishes.
With this money, Lestat bought the theatre where he performed and frequently sent money and gifts to Gabrielle and Nicki. He mostly avoids contact with Nicki and any other mortals he knew so they won't discover his changed nature until one night at the theatre he frightens the audience with his preternatural abilities so much that he decides to shut the theatre down.
Lestat hunts the streets of Paris and the surrounding villages, learning as he goes, while occasionally sensing an unknown menacing "presence", which he chooses to ignore for the most part.
Lestat continues in this way until his mother Gabrielle arrives in Paris, dying from consumption. Knowing he can save his mother from her imminent death, he makes her a vampire like himself, being his first fledgling.
Once Gabrielle's health is restored as an immortal, he shares with her what little he knows of what they both are and the source of his new found wealth.
Lestat soon discovers after making Gabrielle into his fledgling that he can no longer hear her thoughts. For six months they hunt together through the night until "the presence" that has stalked them both attacks.
They manage to fend them off and soon learn that "the presence" is no more than a group of other vampires but later find they have kidnapped Nicki.
When they awake the next night, they hear there are mortals in the church and use their vampiric abilities to frighten them all away in order to escape unnoticed, only to be attacked again by the same vampires when they reach Paris.
They take shelter in the church of Notre Dame where the other vampires dare not enter. To their surprise, a vampire young in appearance does enter and tries to convince them to come out.
When they refuse, he forces them out by telling them he has Nicki and harm will come to him if Lestat and Gabrielle do no follow him.
Lestat attempts to convince the coven of vampires that their way of life living under a cemetery and worshiping the Devil is pointless. The two battle and Armand is startled by the strength of the newly made Lestat who defeats him when Armand himself is hundreds of years old.
Armand becomes devastated that Lestat has quickly destroyed the ideology he has governed his coven by for so long.
Lestat, Gabrielle and Nicki return to the tower left by Magnus and the next night Lestat makes Nicki into a vampire, ignoring the warnings of Gabrielle.
Lestat can no longer hear Nicki's thoughts just the way it happened with Gabrielle. Nicki refuses to speak, so in order to try to draw Nicki out of his silence, Lestat goes back to Paris to look for the violin that Nicki loved so much.
In Paris, Lestat finds four vampires from Armand's coven who ask for his help as Armand has started burning members of the coven.
Lestat is reluctant to help but agrees when they ask if they can use his theatre. Lestat then goes to the flat where Nicki lived and finds Armand there, gathering all the information he can from the flat.
Lestat leaves the flat, disgusted with what he has seen and returns to the tower where Gabrielle and Nicki are. He tells Gabrielle what has happened then he takes her and Nicki with him as he goes to talk to his solicitor, Roget.
Lestat and Gabrielle find him at the old theatre and also there, Lestat finds the violin which he gives to Nicki. Nicki begins playing the violin and soon the other vampires who Lestat gave the theatre to arrive and begin singing and dancing as Nicki plays the violin and it is Nicki who gives it the name " Theatre of the Vampires ".
Nicki tells Lestat that he hates him and then Lestat agrees to leave Nicki and the other vampires at the theatre and let them do what they want with it.
Soon after when Lestat is out one night he sees Armand who acts as though he would be friends with Lestat but when Lestat gets close enough, Armand tries to drink his blood and Lestat in a fury starts beating Armand and only stops when he realizes how helpless and alone Armand is at this moment in time.
He takes Armand back to the tower with the help of Gabrielle. Here Lestat is told the story of how Armand came to be what he is and after the story, Lestat becomes obsessed with the idea of Marius.
Gabrielle manages to convince Armand to join the other vampires at the theatre and Lestat writes the first of his messages to Marius in stone, asking Marius to contact him in some way.
Gabrielle and Lestat travel together for a total of 10 years but soon after leaving Paris Gabrielle starts leaving Lestat on his own for months at a time.
Gabrielle conceals a letter from Paris telling Lestat that his family has all died save his father who waits for him in New Orleans.
Lestat is furious with Gabrielle for hiding this and begins screaming at her to leave. She leaves him whilst they are in Cairo and soon after this Lestat buries himself deep in the ground until Marius comes for him.
He is recovered by Marius and is taken to his secret Mediterranean island. Once Marius has given his warning to Lestat not to go see them again, and leaves on a short outing, Lestat takes Nicolas's old violin and plays for the King and Queen, awakening them.
Akasha feeds from Lestat as Lestat feeds from her. Then, Enkil, furious at the intrusion, attacks and nearly kills Lestat, who is saved by Marius and then sent away.
The Vampire Lestat was released on October 31, We learn that they cry tears of blood, that they're capable of reading other people's minds, that they can be destroyed by fire and sunlight.
We learn that 'no vampire may ever destroy another vampire, except that the coven master has the power of life and death over all of his flock'; and we learn that 'no vampire shall ever reveal his true nature to a mortal and allow that mortal to live'.
The Vampire Lestat was adapted into a comic and released as a part miniseries by Innovation Comics in and In the entire series was published as a graphic novel by Ballantine.
The film was seen to be a critical failure, and disappointed some viewers. Rice herself has dismissed the film. On her Facebook page, any time the subject is brought up, she repeatedly comments that The Queen of the Damned film is not something she can understand or embrace, that she encouraged them not to do the film and that it hurt her to see her work "mutilated" the way it was.
The novel formed the basis for the short-lived Broadway show Lestat. The musical, which was composed by Elton John and Bernie Taupin and written by Linda Woolverton, had a pre-Broadway tryout in California in late and ran for a total of 33 previews and 39 official performances at the Palace Theater in New York.
In November , Rice announced on Facebook that the rights to her novels were reverted back to her despite earlier plans for other adaptations.
Rice said that she and her son Christopher would be developing and executive producing a potential television series based on the novels. There have been three audiobook adaptations of The Vampire Lestat : a abridged version narrated by Michael York ;  a unabridged version narrated by Frank Muller ;   and a unabridged version narrated by Simon Vance.
The Vampire Lestat debuted at No. Dave Langford reviewed The Golden Horn for White Dwarf 86, and stated that "[Rice is] audacious enough to propound an acceptable 'origin story' for vampirism, and to move from dark old Egyptian mysteries to the extremes of twentieth-century Dionysian ecstasy as Lestat gives his first live rock performance.
