Here's the OOC section of the thread. This story is set in America, sometime during the American Revolutionary War, in New Hampshire. The basic plot is about my character, a young woman, who falls in love with a guy, who asks her to marry him before he goes off to join the war. The girl accepts, and within a few months time, her fiancé dies.

The story will start off with my character still in mourning. As the story goes along, she'll meet a vampire, and she'll accept his offer to turn her. She'll be happy with her choice, but part of her will still miss her family. I'm hoping to have this story end with the vampires leaving America and going "back home" to England. Anyway, the role of the sire has already been taken by Kalia, and I believe Balthazar mentioned wanting to play a vampire as well. I do have room for 1 maybe 2 more vampires, if they are well thought out. I definitely have room for people to play the human family. Yes, they will have a part in this thread. It'll be a dual arc of sorts.

A few things you need to know about the vampires, if someone wants to play one.

1. Silver will injure them, but unless left in the blood stream it won't kill them.
2. Beheading and staking is the best way for them to die. Fire will kill them, but only if left alone.
3. They will be faster than humans, any blood will sustain them, but human blood gives them the best nutrients.
4. Only some have the ability to read minds, as given to them by their sire.
5. They can sense other vampires.

As for looks, they'll look like regular people from a distance, but up close they are extremely pale, as if they have no blood in their body, and their eyes will have a slight, hypnotic glow. They will be cold to the touch, but not unpleasantly so. Regular mortals, when meeting them, will be able to tell there's something different about the vampires, but they won't be able to tell what.

With that being said, I'm going to post my characters, and anyone else who is interested can do the same.

Name: Irene Michail
Sex: Female
Race: Human (for now)
Age: 19
Hair: Golden blonde
Eyes: Cobalt blue
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 180 lbs
Looks: Slender, somewhat pale skin, round eyes, full lips, slightly upturned nose, light smattering of freckles running across her nose. Has a small scar on her left hand.

Background: Irene met her betrothed when they were both young. Their families were great friends, and it was the hope of both fathers that the two might marry some day, to join both homesteads. Irene and her beau fell in love as they grew older, and before he left to join the war, he had asked her to marry him. She had accepted, and they had planned on marrying as soon as he was able to come back for a visit. Months later, Irene received the news that her love had been killed during an ambush. Irene still has the token he left her, and is still pining after her love.

Name: Iris Michail
Race: Human
Age: 35
Hair: Golden blonde
Eyes: Brown
Weight: 195 lbs
Height: 5'4"
Looks: Has a matronly weight, due to giving birth to 4 children. Also has slightly pale skin, round eyes, narrow lips, straight nose, and freckles.

Background: Iris is the mother of Irene. She grew up in a somewhat poor family, and married her husband, who inherited the family land after his own father passed away. Iris worries about her husband and oldest son, both which are away at war. She is especially worried since her daughter lost her betrothed, and wishes they would come home, and help her with her grieving daughter. Irene spends most of her time in the kitchen, while her other two sons, ages 15 and 12, help with outdoors work.

NOTE: Yes, the father and the oldest son will come home, eventually.

still interested in having a human around? vampires are awesome, but I haven't played a human in awhile. Maybe I'll convince someone to turn me later :P if you are still interested in this story, I'll make someone up, I have a basic idea already.

That would be great! Just need to see if my other vampire player is still interested.

Alrighty, lemme know if this guy'll fit in.

Name: Frederick Smithson
Sex: male
Race: Human
Age: 18
Hair: Wheat Blonde
Eyes: Light gray/Pale blue (varies slightly depending on day and mood)
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 194 lbs
Looks: Well built young man, muscles forged from life on the farm and in the blacksmith shop. Hair is shoulder length, healthy, and thick, usually tied back in a ponytail. Frederick looks like a man who has just left boyhood behind him, his body strong but still not quite full grown.

Background: Frederick grew up working for his family on the farm and in his father's blacksmith shop. He was the funny boy in town and had many friends, never having to look far to find company. When the war came, Frederick's town lost many of it's young men, all of t hem being called to arms. After only a year and a half, every one of Frederick's friends who were with him had lost their lives. Frederick, falling into despair, deserted the army, running as far as he could, knowing he could not go home because they would check there. Before he knows it he finds himself in New Hampshire, seeking work under an assumed name, George Anvilman.

(There we go, now he's in the area and all alone, how sad :P)

01/19/2006 8:22 AM

cool, I'm gonna start getting his mindset down. gotta figure out how depressed he is, or if he's happy to be away from the war or whatever. Just those little things that affect mood and actions.

The description is good, but you need to change the history a bit. The story takes place during the American Revolutionary War.
