Gabriel Rosewood was the leader of a cult. In 1965, he had encountered the "Highgate Vampire", which was actually a creature called a Corvid. He craved the taste of power he held when he was held in the creature's grip, and by 1972, seven years later, plotted to use his followers as bait to gain the Corvids' power.
