Personality: Vincent has a certain roguish charm to him. He's thinks himself a smooth talker and his wit is as sharp as his skill with a blade, though he can be rather lazy in that he rarely does any hard work himself. He can, in his own fashion, "care" for something, so long as he finds it particularly amusing or useful. He's not one for charity and can be quite cruel when it suits hims. Ultimately though, he doesn't care much for things like "Good" or "Evil", only about himself.
Short History: Vincent was turned around the early 18th century, though what he was before he doesn't remember very well. It's a flaw of vampirism; a compete memory lost of your life prior to it. What he did afterwards, however, could very well be summarized as nearly 300 years of debauchery and trouble. He had traveled the entire world before he was seventy years old, taking whatever means to travel as he felt necessary. He fought in many wars and made many fortunes, but none lasted long enough to satisfy him for his near infinite life.
In the last hundred years or so of his existence, he's recently found himself something of a "life partner", though not for (entirely) romantic purposes. A boy name Kain Maverick, a young upstart who was the closest to ever killing Vincent. As a vampire who has fought against everything and anything from knights, barbarians, gunmen, soldiers, and even tanks, this young human was perhaps the only one in the last hundred or so years who ever came closest to killing him. Ultimately Vincent won out in the end, but amused by the boy's gusto, he decided to turn him into a vampire, his first one.
Now Vincent is in America, traveling the road alongside Kain in search for pleasure and entertainment. Vincent has no bigger goal here, and plans to move on as soon as he feels that he's done with this town.
Other: Vincent is skilled in many forms of combat, but what others don't know is that he's also a skilled magician. Not a conjurer of cheap tricks, but a true wizard. He can enthrall just about anyone with his illusions, and can use various curses and hexes to kill or debilitate his foes. Vincent is capable of taking on the form of a swarm of bats, up to a thousand, to tear apart his foes or simply for travel. He only needs one of the bats to turn back into his human form, and he can use the rest of them to spy or sick them on people.
Name: Kain Sanguine Maverick
Age: Turned when he was 19 but has been alive for over 100 years.
Personality: Kain thinks himself as mostly just Vincent's aid, concerning himself with the more logistical and legal aspects of their relationship. Kain himself normally doesn't go out of his way to interact with people, but he has been doing it enough that he's not uncomfortable in a social situation. Still, he doesn't like being in large gatherings like parties or even group meetings, preferring one-on-one interaction or small teams. Kain is, however, much more empathetic than Vincent, and generally deals with whatever fallout Vincent's actions stirs up. Unlike Vincent, Kain can be genuinely kind and consider others, but sometimes he also has to use his kindness to trick people and sometimes he has to do some very evil things, even if he knows what effects it will have on the victims.
Short History: Kain life before being turned into a vampire was, for the most part, rather boring. He grew up in a small farm house and worked the fields. He did take up hunting and got into his fair share of brawls, but in his home town that was a common occurrence. It wasn't until he was 19 that his life turned upside down. Some newcomer came into town and began to stir up trouble, sleeping with everyone's sisters, girlfriends, and even wives. The men got furious and formed a mob, and Kain was with them. But when they went to confront the adulterer, most of them were cut down before they could draw weapons. It was a blood bath. Kain himself was nearly killed on the first attack, though in the end he was the last one standing. He ended up armed with only a broken chair leg against the seemingly immortal man, and right as he stabbed Kain through the chest, Kain stabbed him with the chair leg. Unfortunately he missed the heart, but out of everyone else, he was the only one who made the man bleed.
Eventually Kain awoken, but with no memory of himself or what had happened. There was another person there though, a young man named Vincent. He told Kain who he was and what he does, and what had happened (Vincent lied mostly). Seeing that he had no where else to go, Kain went with Vincent, and thus began their adventures throughout the world.
Other: While Vincent is good with magic and cunning, Kain is a much more efficient and brutal fighter. Now that he's a vampire he could actually beat Vincent in a physical fight, though he lacks the same magic advantage that Vincent has. Kain is also a licensed physician and chiropractor, and handles all the cooking between him and Vincent. Kain is also skilled at operating many vehicles, form cars, trucks, horses, motorcycles, airplanes, helicopters, he can even man a boat by himself if he must, and many more.
