This is a constantly accepting thread.
It is November of the year 1805. Napolean has defeated all other resistances that stood against him and Britain has been left as the only nation standing. An era of unstable and worrisome peace between Britain and France has been entered but itwill not last long. A third Coalition between Britain, Russia, Austria and sweden has been formed and a bloody, savage war has once again begun that stretches all of Europe as well as the sea. Only a month prior to the day, Nelson won his grand victory against the French-Spanish fleet at Trafalgar and news of it has just reached Britain.
However it is not the only conflict causing bloodshed and grief. Things in the shadows are beginning to stir. Rivalrys and hatreds that have lain dormant for millenia are beginning to bubble to the surface and demons start to sense the coming of their own war. However even this is insignificant to what these events will reveal to be the truth. A truth that could shake the world and bring both human and demon life crashing down.
So we begin the Roleplay in an era of strife and conflict. The king is going insane and England has alot of worries to do with war and the like. Vampires and Werewolves are actually profitting from the conflicts since war breeds desperation and desperation leads to more humans wishing to sell their soul for a task to be accomplished.
All of the information about the three species of Demon is in the Tabs below. There is alot of information and, though I'd love for you to read every single syllable of it, I can understand that you all have lives so there are little summaries at the top of each tab. You will need to read all of the lore for your chosen character type since my version of a werewolf almost certainly differs from yours. If you wish to be human then I would recommend you read all of the 'Bound' sections in the Demon tabs so that you have all of the information.
Now the roleplay is quite firmly based on the Contractor/Contracted relationship. Its about character development and progression to power. I would really like it if one person plays each role (contractor and contracted) rather than one person playing both roles. Its just more interesting that way. Now for the Human contractors, I know that playing a character that will definitely die at some point or another is kinda depressing but once your character dies you will have total freedom to make a new character. I'm probably going to let you go completely wild with it actually, just PM me any of the really original ideas to make sure they fit in with the Universe.
There is a 'Wanted' List at the bottom of this first post, along with an 'Accepted characters' list. On the wanted list I'll post Characters who need a contractor or a Contracted so that we can partner people up and you can discuss your histories with each other ect.
One character each is the policy for now, but it is subject to change depending upon how many people join up.
AND NOW FOR THE TOTALITARIAN REGIME RULES
1. This is NOT a democracy! My.Word.Is.Law.
You Character may be amazing, original and uber imaginative but if I say it won’t work then I said it for a reason and I expect you to listen!
2. No god-modding! (As if you thought this rp would be different than any other rp you have ever joined)
3. No cybering! I wont stop you with before and after comments that trail off suggestively, however you MUST trail off! There will be NO kiddies heads exploding on my rp. The clean-up job the last time that happened was horrendous...
4. No sentence long posts! I want two paragraphs most of the time, although I’m not completely unreasonable when it comes to battles and dialogue.
5. No Drifting Characters! If you have remained inactive for one week without telling me why then your character will be brutally murdered in a fashion of my choosing.
6. No breaking the rules! There may be other rules that I have forgotten so when I enforce a rule that you don’t think is a rule see Rule number one!
7. Ghost97 is the official book of Lore, he is carried under my arm at all times and is a second font of knowledge for the lore of Demons, Hunters and all other manner of beings in this Universe with a particular knowledge of Warlocks and their workings. But be careful! He DOES bite.
Here is all the stuff you need to know:
Soulless Demons are people whom have been killed by a Whole Demon but then forced to remain on earth, their soul energy simply torn from their body but their memories and personality and 'self' remaining.
A contract is formed on the basis of a task, a task that a Human wants completed dearly enough to make it worth the sacrifice of their own soul. The creation of a contract pauses time for the contracted human, not letting them age or die until their contract is completed. This makes it impossible for the demon to gain a soul without completing their task. Most often the contract lasts a few years, however some have been known to last for hundreds of years, ending with the changing of the world. Once a contract is fulfilled the human dies and the Demon takes the Soul. A Demon can decide whether or not it wishes to keep the memories of its Contractor although most choose to wipe the soul clean and never remember their contractor, too painful is the memory.
If a human wishes to enter into a Contract then they have a choice of three Demon species. Vampire, Werewolf or Angel. Depending upon the demon in question there are various ways of entering into a contract including rituals and messages.
Vampires are by far the easiest to get a hold of. Just a taste of your own blood accompanied by the intention of making a contract will call a Vampire to your side but it rarely, if ever, comes to this. Vampire society is highly advanced with networks of contacts, both vampire and human, seeded throughout the world. Just mentioning your intent to make a contract in a conversation with your neighbour can have a vampire at your door within the week.
Werewolves on the other hand, have a very disparate culture and a ritual is usually necessary, unless you chance to meet one on your travels. To call one you must wander into the wilderness at a full moon and howl. This will draw a werewolf in full form to you, but rather than ripping you to shreds werewolves can smell the intention to make a contract and are tamed by the scent, thereby allowing a contract to be formed.
An Angel contract is not only rare but difficult to acquire. Praying for a Contract or something along those lines will draw one to you but they will not even reveal their presence unless your will is strong. Even then they will argue with you and try to persuade you against your choice, trying to find ways to accomplish your task without the sacrifice of your soul. Only if you are completely at peace with the loss of your soul will the Angel accept the Contract.
Characteristically vampires are cunning and wise with all the years they have behind them, their powers are more ones of subtlety and cunning than strength and force. They are a very organized society with a Royal government of Whole Vampires and a complicated legal system for ensuring their continued existence amongst humans. They do live and work around humans and it is often hard to identify them although there are signs that the trained eye of a hunter can spot. Vampires have heightened strength but mostly they are incredibly fast and agile, as well as this they have powers of persuasion and glamour, able to woo an individual by their voice and appearance and manner alone. Souless vampires only have this effect upon humans but once a Vampire becomes whole their powers of seduction are almost impossible to resist.
The average Vampire has to drink blood to survive. By consuming a human's blood a vampire can get a taste of their soul which sustains them, even though they have no soul of their own. However it is a painful existence since they can never be quite satisfied. It is very rare, if not unheard of, for a Soulless Vampire to spare a victims life. There is no exertion of will that can stop them killing their victim once they have taken the first bite, no matter how strong their conviction or feeling for the victim might be.
Many Vampires take quite will to this life of killing, either accepting it as natural and forgiving themselves or embracing it wholeheartedly and reveling in the bloodshed. But some remain ill at ease with this way of life and wish to not kill for a living. These Vampires either find a way to their own destruction or add their name to a list, set up by the Royal Covern, that names the Vampires who wish for a soul. It is a dangerous choice though since a Vampire in a contract will definitely come across many dangers, such as Hunters and Werewolves, and have will to protect their Contractor even above their own life so they cannot flee when danger is near if commanded otherwise/
Many Vampires decide it is not worth the risk and simply remain as they are. Others have a different strategy. Once a soul has been taken the demon in possession of it becomes very powerful, however they are not indestructible and because it is not their soul they have no other form of defense. Humans have complete control of their soul, there is no power that can force a human to give up their soul if they do not wish to. A whole demon on the other hand, has no protection against someone stealing their soul but their body, once their body is broken there is nothing stopping the soul from being taken by any who wish for it. Therefore if a whole demon is killed by another, souless or otherwise, that Whole Demon's soul can be stolen by the victor. However, although this is a more common way for Vampires to pursue a soul, it is a less successful one since a demon with a soul will almost always be stronger than one without.
The strength of a Soulless Vampire relies solely upon whom created them. If a Whole Vampire has two souls then the Vampires it creates will be stronger than those created by a whole vampire with one soul, and so on and so forth. In this way a Soulless Vampire could be strong enough to defeat a Whole Vampire and take their soul for themselves, provided their mother was of immense power.
The relationship between a bound Vampire and their Contractor can be a very varied one depending upon the personalities involved, but characteristically the Vampire takes up a kind of Butler role, always standing slightly behind their Contractor and advising and protecting them until the contract is fulfilled. As the vampire has no soul they still need blood but they only take it from their contractor and since they have complete control over their vampire servants, a contractor can order a Vampire to stop and avoid death.
Human contractors are often introduced into Vampire society and are respected highly depending upon the vampire Covern in that area. The Royal Vampires normally have a definite view that Contractors should be respected and honoured for their contribution. However it happens in some Coverns that Humans are always to be looked down upon and usually in those circumstances they are kept in the dark about Vampire society.
Once a vampire gains a soul they double in strength and often gain abilities unique to them. As soon as a Vampire becomes 'Whole' they become a Vampire Noble, respected by all and given a place in the Government. They give opinions upon decisions that Soulless Vampires would be too biased upon and take responsibility for a certain area of Vampire populated territory. They have many responsibilities and those only grow as they become stronger. Sometimes a Whole Vampire will still make contracts with humans to gain more souls and more power and this factor gives rise to a kind of fear that one vampire will become stronger than the others, however the Royalty generally manage to keep a handle upon any who would try and disrupt the balance.
The most important characteristic about any whole demon is their ability to create souless of their kind. The Souless that they create have a special bond with their 'mother' which waxes and wanes depending on personalities and wants, but generally remains in some form or another. A new Vampire does not have to enter the Covern of their 'mother' but most often it is what they do.
One of the most important roles of Noble's is to protect their Vampire Covern by keeping the level of werewolves in that area to a minimum. Werewolves, when in their wolf form, are always stronger than Souless vampires and even when in human form they can be hard to kill. For safety’s sake Whole Vampires are given the task of culling them periodically so that they do not go mad and alert the human population to the presence of supernatural beings.
At the top of Vampire society sit the Royal Vampires, the Vampires that make decisions for all the Vampire race and are the strongest, wisest and oldest Vampires in the world. They are usually more than 500 years old and have gathered at least 20 souls, a great achievement. At the moment there are only 13 Royals and they are all scattered around the world. However just because a vampire is not in the Royal Covern does not mean they are not as strong as them. There are rogue Vampires who have been traveling for decades without care for the Vampire hierarchy, then there are Vampires who refuse the title in favor of simply helping the cause and finally there are those old and powerful Vampire whom the Royals do not consider suitable for the role of Royalty.
Werewolves have a far more chaotic society than Vampires, however it is also far simpler. They exist by the laws of wolves and belong to packs with an Alpha male and female and others below them. They do not have a universal leader like the Royalty of the Vampires, however they do have Werewolves whom all other Werewolves accept as their betters and whom are obeyed without question. Alpha's of packs that are centuries old command respect wherever they go and even Alpha's of lesser packs will bow to their will. Sometimes a werewolf will choose not to belong to a pack and, providing they do not go mad before they can gain a soul, these individuals will often live a great many years and are treated with great respect. Apart from loners, Werewolves very rarely go into human society, preferring to live in the wild away from civilization. They will sometimes pass through villages and towns but they never stay anywhere for long.
A souless werewolf has limited time. After one is created they will change at the next full moon but they will not be in control. When in werewolf form, a person is in no control of themselves and they react on instinct alone, hunting prey and attacking dangers be they animal or person. These rampages are the reason Vampires cull them since Humans do not distinguish between a corpse drained of blood and a corpse torn to shreds and inevitably a Hunter is called to investigate. Of course the Vampire hunter can distinguish between a Werewolf victim and a vampire victim but often enough they search the area anyway and take the opportunity to kill any vampires they find.
At first a Souless Werewolf is weaker than a Vampire when in human form, but as it ages it gets stronger. At around one hundred years of age they reach equality with Vampires in both strength and speed. However as a Werewolf ages its werewolf instincts and traits begin to seep into its human personality, even into its human form. Slowly it begins to lose reason and humanity, eventually falling completely from humanity and becoming purely wolf. At around 100 years of age is the perfect stage for a souless werewolf. They are at their strongest and, although they have wolfish tendencies in their manner and appearance, like eating raw meat and fang-like protuberances, they still retain their reason and are capable of rational thought. After this they go down hill and this is the point when a werewolf will become most desperate to gain a soul.
A werewolf in a contract with a human is usually used as an utterly obedient guard dog. The human contractor can command the Werewolf to change forms even without the fullmoon needed and they can use a werewolf in its wolf form somewhat like a puppet, controlled entirely by their master and unable to do anything but watch. There is no particular stereotype that they follow, only that they never leave the side of their contractors, hovering around them as a bodyguard.
When in a contract a Werewolf's degeneration is paused and they go no further down the road of wolfishness, however they do not go back either and werewolves vary greatly in the amount of humanity left to them. The rate of success for werewolf contracts is higher than Vampires but those with souls rarely take anymore than one. Only if they rise to the head of a pack will a werewolf try and make themselves stronger by taking more souls and then usually it will be from battles with other whole demons rather than contracts.
Whole werewolves have complete control over both their forms and the degeneration ceases, although they do not regain the humanity they lose. They are usually stronger than Vampires although Vampires are usually faster. As a rule the Alpha of a pack must be a Whole Werewolf and they must be stronger than all other pack members so fights for dominance are common and they cause a kind of natural selection. An Alpha will defend its position from another werewolf with a soul and the victor will kill the loser and take their soul. In this way the strongest will become stronger as well as disposing of the competition.
A Whole Werewolf, Alpha or not, has a responsibility for those Souless Werewolves whom run rampant on nights of the full moon. At this time they are gathered together with Whole Werewolves watching over them and when they change they recognise the Whole Werewolves as their leaders and follow them through the night, hunting for deer and playing together harmlessly under the watchful eyes of their betters. But this is only for those werewolves in a pack, lone Werewolves must find other ways to deal with their full moon transition.
Another way Whole Werewolves protect their pack is by defending it against Vampires. Usually Vampires will only attack the Lone werewolves whom wander into their territory since they can cause the most trouble and an attack on a werewolf pack is a dangerous undertaking. But sometimes they mistake a member of a pack for a lone werewolf and this can be a fatal mistake. Werewolves are usually very protective of their souless, like mothers of children, and almost all Werewolves have an inherent hatred of Vampires. Therefore if one stray pack werewolf is killed by a thoughtless Vampire it can incite a war between the two forces that can mean the end of both as well as the destruction of any nearby human settlements.
Soulless Angels and Whole Angels have virtually no contact. The Whole Angels pity their brethren and Soulless Angels pity in turn but they very rarely come into contact. They are mysterious and very rarely make themselves known to humans, although they do try to aid them from the shadows. They have powers of emotion and healing but how they use it varies greatly between the three types.
Soulless Angels: The messengers
All Angels answer to a being they believe to be god. They do its bidding and nothing more, having no life, no relationships and very few individual thoughts. They have many powers of purity and goodness, healing being the most predominant one, and they go down to earth only to spread purity and happiness amongst the Humans and to collect information about the world to relay to the Being. The Being keeps them in a haze of utter bliss, allowing them to sense only beauty and light and instilling in them an inability to cause any living thing hurt. But so long as the Being tells them to do something, an Angel will not see it as evil. So for instance the being might tell an Angel to kill someone, yet the Angel will see the deed as a kind one. Life through very strong rose-tinted glasses you might say.
However the longer an Angel stays on Earth the weaker the Being's power over them becomes. They begin to see things such as friendship and love and these things cause them to wish for a soul of their own. The time required for this to happen is different for each Angel since, although the Being has complete control of them, they all do have different personalities, wants and emotions.
Even after an Angel has begun to wish for a soul, a human has to pray for an angel's contract to gain it. Only when the Angel is actually faced with the possibility of a soul will they consider it truly and even then they have to see that entering a contract will cause a lot less unavoidable pain for the Human than accepting it will. Up until this point an Angel is still incapable of causing harm.
Bound Angels: Fallen Angels
An Angel in a contract is completely torn from The Being's influence and has their own mind and personality forced upon them. However at first this is a great shock. To see the world without any barriers for the first time is incredibly traumatic and often an Angel will simply kill themselves before ever gaining a soul. If this does not happen then they latch onto their Contractor, finding comfort in the relationship of utter trust that comes with the contract and delighting in helping someone.
They are normally seen as a dear loving friend of the Contractor, not only protecting them but knowing instinctively how to make them smile and laugh. Quite a lot of contracts made with Angels are made by children so in that case they become like a parent or a sibling, watching over them until their task is done.
Whole Angels: Seraphim
The start of a Seraphim is fragile since it involves the loss of their contractor. No matter how brutally they are treated by their contractor an Angel cherishes the very first relationship they ever have and its loss causes much pain. Still they enter into their life on earth and try and find many friends among humans, vampires and werewolves. Mostly they stick with human relationships since the bloodshed that naturally comes with the other two options is repulsive to them. Even so because Vampires and Whole Werewolves live forever the few friendships made with them last longer and are more equal.
Seraphim are incredibly powerful. They do retain some of their healing power but mostly they are just given raw power of light and regenerative capabilities, to be used however they see fit. A human cant look at them when they show their wings the light is so bright and individuals make their own use of the pure light energy. Like all Whole Demons, Seraphim can make Angels but they basically never do, to tear a person's soul from their body is far to traumatic and violent a thing to do. Also the memory of not having emotion is very vivid in their minds and they do not want that for anyone.
Although it is the rarest of occurrences, it has happened that a demon has fallen in love with a human and had a child. The life for this child is difficult from the start. At birth they are fragile and weak and few survive the first few weeks. Even those that do survive don't live long past their teens or early adulthood. The reason for this is the weak soul that inhabits their body.
Its worst if the parent was a soulless demon. In that situation the child will definitely not survive, but even for Whole Demons their soul is inadequate. A Whole demon's soul isn’t their own, it doesn’t have the same tie to the world and so cant pass on a strong soul to a child. This causes a weak body that has no will to hold onto life and also colours the child’s pupils grey instead of black.
Even so this does give a Half Demon certain abilities and those Half-bloods who discover, train and use these abilities are named Warlocks. Because their soul has such a loose tie to the world they are free to roam into the realms of the dead. Warlocks have certain powers of foresight and they can call back the dead into a living body by sacrificing the original host. The host must be completely willing for this since it is similar to a demon contract in that the soul must be freely given. The soul of the original host is taken by the Warlock and they feed upon it, which strengthens them for a period of time. However this is not an everlasting effect, the energy of the soul is eventually depleted, the length of time it takes for this depends upon the ability and strength of the Warlock. This skill of resurrection is risky since the Warlock’s soul must leave their body and travel through the realm of the dead to find the target of resurrection. Each time they do this they get better at finding the target, but it also becomes harder to leave. Many Warlocks are lost this way.
Someone who is resurrected has no adverse effects, they are simply alive in a body that is not their own. They can live a relatively normal life if they wish, but that is rarely the case. Sometimes they might have memories of their time dead, but these are never more than blank swirling grey or unbearable bright light.
Warlocks can also commune with the souls of a Whole demon or any soul still bound to the living world that should not be there. They use this to gather information and often to help Whole demons in their dealings, or help Hunters against them. Warlocks may be physically weak but their abilities make them incredibly useful so often they gain the protection of others in exchange for their gifts.
Of course although Half bloods may be weak, there is a way of allowing a child to survive. By turning it into any of the species of Demon they effectively die and are reborn in that species, allowing them to live on. When this happens, because they have supernatural blood in them, they become stronger than most Soulless Demons and often swiftly gain a soul through their strength.
There is only space for two Warlock Characters in this rp and they will have to be good, well developed Characters as well as fit in with the plot.
Hunters usually come from an old family (often religious) who have collected information over hundreds of years on the ways to kill demons.
They use special weapons forged with some silver content in them but that is not enough to kill a demon. For a hunter's weapon to work they must be bathed in the blood of a Whole demon, the more souls the demon has the more potent the weapon's ability. A demon is weakened when around a weapon drenched in the blood of its species. Their speed and strength is reduced and their ability to heal is also lessened. By how much depends upon the strength of the demon being fought and the blood of the demon on the weapon.
Not only that but being in possession of the weapon gives hunters greater speed and strength as well as endurance in amounts depending on the species of demon's blood. Greatly enhanced speed for vampires blood, strength for werewolf’s and endurance for angel’s. These weapons are usually handed down through these old hunter families and the children who show the best potential are given them. There are exceptions.

Name: Carmen Martirio
Personality: Carmen has a very gentle demeanor and is considerate and compassionate. However she is also strong and quite merciless, being capable of doing whatever is right and defending it passionately. She has no guilt for killing anyone since she never kills without a reason that satisfies her.
History: Carmen lived as a dancer of an ancient form of flamenco dancing in Valencia and rose quite high in fame for her dancing. She even danced for El Cid, the legendary Military Commander and lord of Valencia until he died in 1099. For a while after she danced in the failing city, sad for the loss of its beauty.
She attracted the attention of a very old wandering Vampire named Meneshe who had come from jeruselum after the first Crusaders landed. Many Vampires fled from jeruselum at that time since holy men are trained in the identification and destruction of vampires. He was very tired and downhearted, a vampire old beyond reconning and just as wise. He saw Carmen's youthful beauty closeted in the dark and crumbling Velencia and he was saddened to see it. He offered her two choces. Either he could smuggle her away from the city and find her a husband of noble birth and character so that she might live in luxury the rest of her life, or he could change her and she might follow him to venice and dance and be beautiful freely and for forever.
She was conflicted for some time but eventually the thought of being bound to a man for the rest of her life seemed a thankless existence and she chose to follow him. Their relationship grew and Meneshe took on a paternal love of Carmen, protecting and nurturing her in vampire society while Carmen was as dedicated and loving a daughter as any.
They traveled away from Valencia before the city was taken and journeyed to Venice where there was a florishing vampire society of Nobles and royalty. Carmen's dancing was much loved among the Vampire courts and she rose in esteem not only for her maturity and cunning but also for the calm way she handled feeding. While they remained there Carmen noticed Meneshe being bagered to accept a position in Royalty but he maintained a refusal which Carmen was greatful for. Royals were never at liberty and Carmen enjoyed journeying with Meneshe.
In the year 1110 news was heard of the Crusader's attack upon Beirut and even though he did not wish for responsibility, Meneshe decided to return to Jeruselum and try to aid the muslim rebellion against the Crusaders. Carmen insisted upon joining him and a large number of other Vampires agreed to come but it took some time to organise and only in the year 1125 did they set out. They arrived and began the fight against the English but a new and dangerous enemy awaited them for the crusaders contracted angels to their soldiers. These soldiers were called Templars and although they had no significant destructive power they did not die and did not feel pain because of the protection of their angels.
A while after Meneshe and Carmen joined the fight Carmen became contracted to a fearless and passionate Arab Prince named Ṣalāḥ ad-Dīn who charged her to aid him until Richard the Lionheart was driven from Ṣalāḥ ad-Dīn's homeland. Carmen respected and trusted Salah from the first and through their long relationship she came to love him though this was a great pain for her whom had to take his soul.
The three, Meneshe, Carmen and Ṣalāḥ ad-Dīn, spent long years trying to repel the Crusaders and Templars and Carmen's prowess in battle rose to great heights. However in the year 1180 Meneshe was killed while battling against a large number of Templar knights although the battle overall was won. Carmen lost heart for the fight after that but could not cease since her contract bound her to continue.
The angel Marcus, whom had been the death of Meneshe, had taken his soul and became a Seraphim. He came to Carmen and begged her forgiveness for he was repulsed at having caused a living thing such anguish. She did not forgive at first but the Seraphim would not leave and Carmen found herself warming to his company. Not being one to dwell on the past at that time, she forgave Marcus and they became good friends. With his help Ṣalāḥ ad-Dīn's wish was fullfilled and he became sultan of Egypt until Richard the Lionheart left Jeruselum.
Carmen chose to keep Ṣalāḥ ad-Dīn's memories once she became a Whole Vampire and, with Marcus, began a journey to England to observe the monsters whom had caused so much bloodshed. She stopped off in Venice for a time and was comforted by the Nobles there whom had known Meneshe. While there she gained another contract which turned out to be a very simple task and another. Very soon she was known for her ability and she was sought out by Humans for help with their various problems.
She managed to escape from Venice when she had gained another seven souls but again got sidetracked by wanting to visit her homeland of Spain. She arrived there by 1470 and stayed there, learning the new Flamenco dance and entertaining herself with simple pleasures that she had forgotten. Marcus left for England in the middle of this and Carmen promised to follow, which she did, eventually. During her time in Spain she gained 23 souls, putting her way over the requirements for a place in the Royal Covern and when she once again set off for England it was 1587 making her 510 years old.
She came to England, was reunited with Marcus and was asked to accept a seat in the Royal Covern which, after some deliberation, she did. Since then she has been devoting her strength and abundant time to managing her Covern in the English countryside on the Devonshire Moors.
Personality: He is quiet and smiles rarely for he has nothing to smile for. He is polite and quite gallant to other vampire’s unless they are rude to him. However he will kill who he is told to kill without regret or mercy.
History: Born in 1509 in Venice, the same year that the French invaded. His parents were simple fishmongers and fled the country in an attempt to escape the war. He had older brothers who were both killed in their flight of the city. Once in the countryside they began travelling to Spain where they could hire a sailor to take them to England. His parents however were not good travellers and were devastated at the death of all but one of their children. At some point in their journey they were attacked by bandits who brutally beat Adriano’s father to death with crude weapons. Once finished with him they turned to find the woman and child gone. Whilst they had been clubbing the father she had fled with her son. Eventually they reached the coast and hired a sailor who took them across the channel. Once in England Adriano’s mother finally lost her strength and collapsed in the port they had stopped at. People came to help; they wrapped the baby in blankets and tried to tend to the woman. But she was too cold and ill and was suffering from shock. She died late that night. Adriano grew up in the orphanage, which he hated. He broke the law aged 16 by running away and fleeing out of the town and into the country. He dodged the law for the next ten years or so. Stealing food, money and occasionally working for coin. He knew not what to do with his life, he was an orphan with no family anywhere to support him. Eventually he started to slow down. Stealing less and working more. When he moved to London he found work as a courier. He had always been a strong runner, now he could be paid for it.
It was on one delivery that he met a girl in the street completely by accident. It so happened that she was the daughter of the man that Adriano worked for. Her name was Alice and he was instantly enchanted by her beauty. They spoke for a long while there in the street before finally exchanging locations to meet then departing. Within a few weeks they became close friends and within a few months they had completely fallen for each other. They both knew it could never work however for she was a lady and lived in a large mansion, and he was a poor foreign boy who lived in an inn and couldn’t even afford his own house. Despite this they were soon becoming even closer, and one day she invited him to come and visit while her father was at work. So the next day at lunchtime he went round and visited. It escalated quickly and before he knew it they were on top of each other and making passionate love. It was at that point that the door flew open and her father returned home to find his daughter performing adultery with an 18 year old peasant.
He was thrown into the street and beaten repeatedly by one of his men. Then he was left in the mud, his money taken and his love never for me to see again.
There he lay for many hours. Pondering in miserable silence what he should do.
It was not until that evening that he bothered to get up and move to shelter.
He spent the next few years honing his skill with a blade, preparing to become the only thing he knew he would be good at, an assassin. About two years later he was initiated into an assassin’s guild. He worked for them for another few years until he was given a contract to go to London and kill one of the rich aristocrats who owned many factories and markets. He was told there was a heft reward for completing this contract. So Adriano and two other assassins made their way to London. Once at the house they waited until night fall and then snuck in.
They quietly dispatched the guards and left one man on guard at the entrance. Making their way further in they found the man sitting by a fireplace with a girl next to him. Acting on instinct Adriano hurled a throwing knife at her just as she turned round. It was Alice; there was a second when her eyes seemed to light up with happiness. Then the knife sank into her chest and she collapsed to the floor. Something changed in him as he saw Alice lying dead on the floor, some distant light finally extinguished. The other assassin had killed the man and was shaking Adriano hard telling him that they had to go. In one fluent motion Adriano had pulled the assassin’s own dagger from his belt and stabbed him through the neck with it. He then proceeded to kill the other assassin and set the house alight.
The guards found him cradling Alice in his arms. They dragged him, screaming from the house and to the prison.
That same night in the prison he was approached by a seemingly young and beautiful woman. This woman said that he did not deserver to die, instead he should live in her service, and his life would hers. Not knowing whether he had a choice or not Adriano grudgingly accepted. He was hung the next day at dawn.
So the woman came to his near dead body and made him into a vampire. She introduced herself as Carmen, and so began his life of service to her.
At first he went slightly mad with his new power and strength. He fought many other soulless vampires in the covern. He eventually went too far and killed one. Carmen then put him in the dungeon for a month or so.
At the end of that month she came to him and took him to a hidden location where she fed him tiny doses of blood to train him control and spent a long time teaching him how to fight better and even dance!
Manners also came into the equation.
Within a few years he had mastered himself and had become a quiet, cold and merciless killer (also polite and helpful to other vampires).
He stayed at Carmen’s side until about 40 years ago when a man named Adán tasted his own blood nearby. Interested Adriano went to investigate and ended up being contracted to this man. Adán’s brother had become a werewolf and had transformed, killing their entire family. Now Adán wanted to find and kill him. Once contracted Adriano was relinquished from Carmen’s service until his contract was complete. He still hunts this werewolf at Adán’s side…
Adrán is friendly, very blunt and has a thing for women, he is always on the lookout for some fun with a willing lady despite his age. He holds grudges very easily and for a long time and he can be incredibly arrogant at times, much to Adriano's annoyance.
He doesn't talk about his past much, all Adriano knows is that he is from a rich trading family in spain that specialized in the animal trade.
Name: Sophia Brandon
Species: Half-breed Seraphim, turned vampire
Personality: Sophia is meek, quiet and can’t stand any form of conflict. She gets upset easily and has almost no experience in social situations. She has little sense of self-worth mainly due to her father’s quite obvious disdain for his weakling daughter. She has a high tolerance for pain developed in her years of illness.
History: Sophia is the child of a rogue seraphim and a human mother. Her mother came from a rich family and married well; she pretended that Sophia was her husband’s child and Sophia never knew her real father. She was always weak and fragile growing up and had several close brushes with death; the doctors could never understand how she survived but she always did. When she was 18 her mother died suddenly of unknown ailment and the next day she was attacked in the street and woke up as a vampire. Carmen found her and looked after her for the next 2 months, helping her to survive.
Name: Anthony Hastings
Personality: A steely personality by necessity, but he can be gentle and loving. He is not naturally cold-hearted but he does a good job at it nonetheless. He is always a Gentleman though, etiquette becoming almost instinctual.
History: He was born to Noble Family, the first-born son to a Military father and a Lady mother. Later on he had a sister and she loved him like nothing else had ever done. He adored her in turn and became completely devoted to her care and safety. Years passed and when she turned 18 her parents pressured her to find a husband. Eventually they grew tired of waiting and forced a marriage of convenience upon her to a completely odious man whom had likely killed his previous two wives, though they had both died in childbirth. Anthony knew he could not let his sister be married to a monster, but he also knew he could not kill the man outright since his sister would undoubtably be forced to marry another or even blamed for his murder. So, after finding an odd book that told of secret rituals to call demonic servants to his side, he drank his own blood and was found by two Vampires. He was promptly taken to an estate not far away in the Devonshire countryside where he met a dark and beautiful woman. She told him she would give him one of her companions as his servant to aide him in his quest so long as once his deed was done, he would freely offer up his soul. Anthony accepted without question, he could not do this alone. He was shocked at the appearance of his chosen servant, a delicate angelic creature she was, dainty and fragile looking. The dark woman saw his surprise and mistrust and told him that there was more to the girl than met his eye and that even her innocence would prove useful to him in his task.
Name: Abel Toupin
State: Not contracted
Personality: Mmmmm...This will become apparent through posts.
History: Abel was born into the first, and richest estate of the time, the clergy. His father was a devote priest to the church, and his mother was a maid in the house of the emperor. He seemed destined for the boring life of a priest's son, growing up in the Catholic church and learning how to be the perfect man, and he was thought to eventually become a priest like his father.
It was not meant to be, however, for one day Abel, as a troubled young teenager wandered his way through the streets of Paris, carrying a rapier that wasn't his. He bumped into a musketeer, and when he refused to apologize, the enraged musketeer drew his blade and challenged the boy to a duel. The battle was over within less than a minute after it started, it was obvious the boy didn't know which end of the sword he was meant to hold.
The musketeer seemed to feel pity on the boy, and took him to the place in which he was staying, and offered him a meal. After telling the musketeer of his horridly boring life and his yearning for adventure, the musketeer immediately brought the boy before his superiors."He has quite a spirit in him." The musketeer explained."I believe I can teach him to be better than even I."
And so he did as he told his lordship. Abel was taken in by the musketeer as his own son, and never did he see his birth family again. The training was hard, and many times he wished to give up and return home, but the musketeer now dubbed his father pushed him on wards. He pushed Abel to his breaking point, until one day he approached the lad after a hard days training."You're ready." He had said.
The astonished Abel was brought before Napoleon and sworn in, and handed his weapons and clothing. Now a full-fledged musketeer, he set off to return to his family. It had been many years since he'd left, and he had never once thought to tell his family where he went. He believed returning home now a musketeer would right that wrong...
He was never given the chance. He arrived to his home, to find the interior stained with blood, and his two parents half-consumed corpses are the floor in the kitchen. The room was filled with claw marks, and pieces of wood were bitten off from the counter. After an investigation, it was clear what had done this...
Abel now has a hatred for that species, and will stop at nothing to see every one of them dead...Even sell his own soul...
Name: Thomas (III) Stark
Personality: To be revealed
History: Thomas is part of the old Stark house, a family that originated from Wales in the medieval ages.
From the very begining, the family was destroyer of the evil creatures. At a young age, every man born with the name Stark was to become a demon hunter, trained by the father or grandfather of the family with a blade and the herbs that were necesarry. For a price, they could also be hired to exterminate covens and specific targets, earning their gold as cleansers of the world. Some of the younger in the family were also known to be "witch boys", which we today know would be more fit as "warlock boys". For a few coins, they would point out warlocks of villages, if there was any. These warlocks would then be taken away for the witch trials. The elder of the Stark family would mostly have no qualms of this, as they saw warlocks only a slight better than demons, as they carried their blood.
The females, if the head of the house allowed it, would be apocatherians, producing the herbs, salves and toxins that were increadibly helpful for the demon hunters. They were often given the honor of the village apocatherian, as well.
The family quickly grew a quite generous wealth from the payment of exorsisms, demon slaying, witch hunting and herbal remedies, allowing them to grow into a large and well-known name, respected by the normal humans, and the fear of demons and contracted. After three generations, the Stark Mansion began construction, which was finished a generation later. The building was an impressive one, of black-painted wood, looming as a reminder to anyone looking at it that the house of Stark was a force to be reckoned with.
As time went on, it was realised that a weapon bathed in the blood of demons empowered it's wielder, lifting them closer to the abilities of their prey. As such, a blade was forged and bathed in what the Stark's had considered their greatest threats: the mind-boggingly quick vampires. Werewolves were brought down with well-aimed, crippling shots and decapitacion, not to mention easily distracted, and angels were a rare prey. Vampirs, on the other hand, were increadibly hard to even reach with the blade, and night impossible to shoot. This sword, known as Cráwa (old english for Raven) after the sole, black raven, with red-tipped thornbushes behind it that was the family crest, was at first a mighty claymore, passed down to the oldest son of every generation. However, with generations comes new minds and preferences, and with preferences comes remaking. Cráwa would be reforged many a time throughout it's hundreds of years of existence, keeping it from ever growing worn of age. While the steel that formed it was not much younger than the Stark mansion itself, the blade was never beyond three generations of age.
As was demanded by a tradition formed the first time a hunter wished to reforge the blade, a whole vampire would have to be tracked down and captured, and then kept within the mansion's dungeon, which had been specifically added for the purpose. Once the blade was reforged, the first blood it would ever taste would be that of the whole vampire, who would bathe the weapon red.
With centuries passing, "superstition" of demons, witches and other monsters turned into nothing but tall tales and bedtime stories. The Stark family's occupation became less and less respected, until their services were never called upon, but from the few that knew of demon existance. To keep themselves fed, the Stark family thus also taught the medical side of herbal science to the sons, who would be earn their gold as doctors, and cleanse the world as hunters.
As this development took place alongside the rise of the black death, the Stark's often became plague doctor's, dominating the occupation within most of Wales. It fit them well, as the masks they bore shared the beaks of their crest.
While plague doctors also became obsolete, the clothes stayed. Many hunters in the house started keeping a modified version of it as their hunting attire, due to the well-fitted pockets it had, and the mask and hood that would obscure them from those that did not see demon hunters, but murderers of innocent and sick.
In the current era, the Stark family is more known for their herbal remedies, than their demon slaying. In fact, they are hardly ever seen slaying demons anymore, albeit only because it is what the house wishes. They are as active as ever with their slaying of the demons, and all who affiliate with them. The mask they wear has become associated with the saving of lives, and the terror of death. As the Stark family always has been.
Thomas, the third carrying this name, was born 1762, in London. He is the son of Thomas the second, the oldest hunter to ever have lived in the long family line. His mother was a young maid, who was married into the family after Thomas II found her in a London pub. After a night of passion, she was given a child. To keep his family name clean, the head married the maid, not that either of them minded the unison.
The young boy was raised mostly in London, not knowing much more of the mansion, which would one day become his, than it's mere existance. His birthplace became the place where he learnt to wield a blade, the particular style of swordsmanship fitted to Cráwa's current form; a blade the size of a cutlass, kept within a staff of polished, black iron wood. Topping the staff is the head of a raven in pure silver. The blade was made with the purpose of subtly that the house has been forced to embrace in later years, and is still as lethal as the day it's first form was made. Thomas had issues, at first, with the blade, finding the handle and lack of guard unwieldy and dangerous. Much to his father's chagrin, he instead excelled in the medical part of the Stark's legacy. He could use a mortel and needle better than a sword. On the other hand, his crafting of toxins was also amazing. The perfection of his concotions was stunning. At the age of 16, he had already invented a method to perfectly treat wolfbane, using ice and stone to keep the temperature just right during the whole proccess. His invention was given to every member of the Stark house, and passed down to the next generations, centuries later. It was even adopted by certain other families of demon hunters.
Still, a boy that could mix the best toxins, but not wield a blade to use them was about as useful as a horse with three legs. In a last, desperate attempt, Thomas' father decided to let him try Cráwa - and he was breath-taken by the results. The speed the blade bestowed allowed Thomas to fence with the skill and ease of a prodigy. It was as if his body had been formed just to move with Cráwa in his hand. Even the handle seemed to mold with his hand. At the age of 28, he did something completely unheard of within the Stark lineage; he defeated his father, before the mansion had even been passed onto him. As such, he was also given the master attire of a plague doctor, two years early. On the day it was given to him, he was so prideful and joyed that the smile which donned his face could not even be hidden by the beaked mask.
Now 43 years old, his father has passed away, and Thomas the third is the sole owner of the mighty mansion, awaiting him in Wales, still calling to him to enter for the first time of his life. The mansion is currently kept in a fine state by the younger brothers of Thomas II, and their wives and children. At times, the eldest of the Starks will send them letters, giving them a briefing of England's demon situation, or ask for the situation of Wales. In rare cases, he may request supplies, as well.
During his time, he carved himself quite the reputation in northern Europe, spanning not only the British isles, but the neighboring countries as well. He is respected and feared as the Estranged Stark, the lethal hunter who's never visited his own family house. Not to mention his medical skills and herbal poisons has earned him business with civilians and hunters alike.
As of now, Thomas only have two goals. First, to cure the second plague of the world, the demons. Second, to reforge Cráwa. The sword is soon much too old, the steel needs to be tempered and remade. Thomas wants it to be forged for him, forged to better fit the issue he always had with it. He intends to have it made a cutlass, with an actual guard. However, he knows he first will need to find a whole demon to bathe the reforged Cráwa in. What he also knows is who's blood will first run down the blade. The reforged sword will be painted red by Carmen Martirio.
Character Theme - Heaven
"An endless cycle of violence and death. Addicting, is it not?"
While the majority of demons know of the Vetrov family, Alisa is often referred to as "The Night Stalker"
Alisa is a very elegant woman. Every gesture she makes is fluid and graceful. This has caused her to emanate an aura of pure beauty even from when she was younger, making sure she was constantly surrounded in friends and men who wished to enter into courtship with her. She's a lady of status, both while hunting and while living her normal life. To say that Alisa is kind would be incorrect, but she's not a spiteful person as well. While she was more aggressive in her youth, her persona has become more subdued; some even say that she looks almost sad. Her life has been anything but easy, being a Hunter, and it is her goal to free herself from the world of hunting which she finds herself so addicted to.
Is is often uncommon to find cases where Demons were cautious, sometimes fearful, of humans. The Vetrov family is a renowned family of experienced Hunters that stretches back generations. They are mostly known as a wealthy family of rich, London Elites to humans. However, to the Demons they are a force to be reckoned with. They are known for their quick, silent methods as well as always being able to make their mark. In earlier years. the Vetrov family would often send large groups of hunters to slaughter smaller covens of vampires, packs of werewolves and other Demons alike. However, as their family climbed the social ladder they had to start being more careful with their hunting practices. Now the Vetrov family acts as almost a mercenary group; only offering their services to those who know of their existence and for the right price. The family all used to live together in a large manner, but in recent times they have told their hunters to sever their ties to the family and work from the shadows.
To Alisa, this deal worked out perfectly. Blessed as a hunting prodigy from an early age, Alisa was slaughtering demons from as early as her teenage years. More so than any other hunter in her family, Alisa killed demons with murderous zeal in her eyes and one would even think that she enjoyed hunting; thinking of it more as a sport than a profession. Being able to live by herself and hunt alone meant she could do as she pleased without having to look at her families concerned stares as she happily tore through the undead. Alisa continued to keep her families wealth and status, even despite what their agreement was. As such she was often invited into high social gatherings. It was at one such gathering she was able to meet Luca; a rich elite from another family. Her and Luca grew incredibly close, even to the point where they were planning to be married to each other. As fate would have it, Alisa received her next bounty a month before her wedding; with Luca as her target. The cunning vampire had wormed his way into human society in order to create a form of security around him from the hunters. It appears as though his cover had been blown and someone came to Alisa requesting that he be dispatched. Upon finding out that Luca was a vampire, Alisa erased all feelings for him and killed him as quickly as any other Demon she had faced. But something was different. On the day she was supposed to be marrying Luca, she suddenly felt a pang of regret inside of her. Finding herself crying for days on end, she was suddenly hit with a revelation. Is this how she had made so many others feel? Through her constant killings. As she had seen with Luca; it wasn't impossible for Demons to forge bonds that could last forever just as humans could. How many of those Demons had a family, a lover or even a friend that would have been deeply saddened by their death? And Alisa had been the one who inflicted such feelings upon them.
Alisa wanted out; a task that was easier said than done. Alisa had always felt the urge to hunt; it was in her blood from the start. No matter what she did, she couldn't tear herself away from the life she had always known. Despite the feelings of guilt and regret inside of her, she continues to hunt to this day; knowing that with each kill she is merely pulling herself back into an endless cycle of pain. She continues to live as a wealthy elite, respected by many people; but forever burdened with a tradition she can't escape from.
Weapons and Tools
Alisa carried around two of her families finest blades when hunting; one of them dipped in the blood of a Vampire and the other in the blood of a Werewolf. In addition to these two deadly weapons, Alisa's fingernails are coated in a rich, silver. While this silver cannot kill an undead; it is enough to fend them away from Alisa when she is unable to reach her weapons.[/SPOILER][/FONT]
Name: Levi Bauer
Age: 34, born in 1771
Appearance: Currently I cannot get my image to work; while I attempt to make it work you can imagine him as a man with shoulder length russet hair and a small beard.
History: Levi comes from a mixed heritage as his mother is English (Anna Clarks) and his father (Peter Bauer) hailed from the North German Confederation. His father decided there were better places to be and left for England. Once in England he managed to land a job as a temporary ship hand on an unknown trading vessel. It was during this time that Mr. Peter Bauer decided ship work was his calling and found a ship that would employ him, The Leviathan. He continued to work aboard The Leviathan until he took a break in 1769 due to an injury he acquired during a more hectic storm. While staying in a port town he met the young English woman Anna Clarks and found himself instantly smitten.
All though it took a great deal of effort on his part, Anna eventually reciprocated the feelings and the two were wed in May of 1770. And the next year there son was born, Levi Bauer. Because of the wound Peter Bauer received and because he desired to remain with his family he never rejoined The Leviathan and instead became a fisherman. Like his father, Levi grew up with a love of the sea and longed to one day sail far out into her vast waters. Around the year of 1790 the family befriended a man by the name of Walter Goodall, who served as captain of a transporter ship. Walter claimed he once worked on The Leviathan and was thoroughly impressed by Peter, as such he attempt to recruit him to his ship only to be rejected. Ultimately there came a time when Walter would be taking a long voyage that would not allow him to return for many months and through much coaxing he convinced the old sailor to come along with him.
This had been a mistake.
The ship never returned and it was believed to have been torn asunder in a passing storm. And so time carried on, and Levi took up his father job as a fisher to provide, his dream of sailing became less as responsibilities pulled him down. It was one day in the year of 1798 when he came across a man who had set sail on that fateful journey; he was perfectly fine-but he claimed to be a different man. Angered by this discovery, Levi began to search vigorously for any traces of the other sailors. He was capable of finding two more, both who lived under fake names, and all three of whom disappeared shortly after being suspected. Determination began to consume him as he no longer believed the story of the storm. He became obsessed and would use any means necessary to obtain the answer he sought.
Personality: Asariel, in his own way, can send off kindness and love(much like any angel) to anyone he fancies, mostly enjoying the company of someone abnormal and erratic. Amused easily, and quite compassionate, Asariel is an odd angel with kind, little quirks of his own to give. He likes cheering up the suffering, and mourns with those who see destruction in their world. The man has a large distaste for war and any kind of conflict, but if dragged into it, he would do what was right(or what he believed to be right).
Another side of him is the serious, more introverted one. Instead of a gentle, benevolent being, he turns to a quiet, sullen shell, getting depressed and discouraged over things he had seen in the past. If reminded, his mood somewhat moves down a tick, and he avoids social contact, and finds his comfort in intellectual stimulation(reading books, spying, thinking, etc..). Overall, Asariel is a fun-loving, helpful guy with just a bit of leftover problems.
History:In the beginning, Asariel, like all angels, began as a soulless one, serving the Being the best he could(or the best the Being allowed him to). Life was wonderful, and all he saw was light, goodness, every day, every night. Everything he knew to be was unrealistic purity, and simply believed the world was already cleansed of sin and bloodshed. As Asariel began spending more time on Earth on little tasks, he had the habit to linger for a bit, as much as he could. It was so different to him, the humans, the practical smell of dirt on the ground, the sky that he soared through. All of this, each day, he would see a little more of Earth. It wasn't as much as a blur.
That was when an insignificant yearn came to him in the night, like a tiny flea biting at his skin. A soul. At first, he ignored it. He was scared, and the fact he was actually scared scared him more. He had grown attached to the Being, the only thing he knew, and was aware that his master would some time be cut off from him. It was already too late. He had already seen too much. The more the flea gnawed at him, the more he went crazy from the feeling, and the more the Being seemed to go away. The Earth and a soul was so beautiful after all. Why had the Being kept him away from it?
All of those years of wishing for a soul almost had him tearing out his hair, but one day, he found himself in a new situation. Something cried out to him.. he didn't know what, but it was something he could never, ever ignore. At first, Asariel kept a distance, studying the source from afar, noticing it to be a young girl, perhaps around 14-15 years of age. She had long, chestnut hair, and good, intentful brown eyes, with an olive-skinned tone. She was kneeling by her window, shutting her eyes, her prayers silent. It certainly grew Asariel's excitement, but he could not help brooding over it the next day.. Inexplicable feelings were rising in him, and the strong desire for a soul was overwhelming him. What about the girl? Were those tears on her eyes just the beginning of the pain she would feel if she contracted with Asariel?
No matter what he said or did, she insisted on having a contract with him. He even considered leaving her, but the girl begged and begged and her intentions seemed pure. Days passed even more, but he truly decided to answer her prayers, and they made a contract together, him discovering her name was Ashia. Their contract was, in return for her soul, Asariel would be her life-long companion until death. The girl had been carrying a great deal of suffering, living in poverty as her mother fled with a baby in her womb, and her father dead from the war. She was all alone. However, the angel felt greater feelings.. like he wanted to die. What had happened to that beautiful place he dreamed of walking on? What was this horrible planet? Questions rose in his head and all he could do was grieve and cling on to Ashiel. In fact, that was exactly what he did, never allowing her to leave his sight. She didn't seem to complain, for a friend/companion was something she always hoped for.
Many years went by, and both of their sorrow seemed to lesson each day, but Asariel could not help ponder on the horrible mistake he made.. Now, that he contracted with her, he dreaded on the day she would pass. He had grown very attached to Ashiel, only finding happiness when he looked at the young, happy woman she had become. Her smile was bright, her love was true, and she changed from a depressed adolescent to someone who he was proud of. All of those years, they had supported each other, Asariel making sure she had enough to eat, and Ashiel making sure he was mentally in tact. It was a nice life, and Asariel thought nothing of the Being anymore.
On her death bed, aged 67, Asariel would not forgot that old, recognizable face of his loved one.. The day she died, he collected her soul and wiped it clean, knowing his suffering would increase, as well as his lassitude levels. Ever since her death, he wandered the world, caught up in his own sadness. Now, his serious side shows more, but he still dwells around humans, befriending them with a rather pitiful expression and repairing the world as much as he can.
