: All the usual things for a vampire. Women. Appearance
: 6'4” tall, 230 lbs of lean muscle, dark blonde hair, and blue eyes.Personality
: Rhys is a very easy going, laid back kind of guy. He is very much about living in the moment and enjoys indulging himself and spoiling whoever is on his arm at the moment. He is the type that enjoys women and remains friends with them even after their affair is done. He possesses a seemingly endless stream of patience and is more of a lover than a fighter. However, he is no coward and will not run from a challenge. With the flip of a switch he can become hard and ruthless if the situation calls for it. He absolutely cannot stand disrespect or abuse aimed at women. He trusts very few but once someone makes it onto his short list, he will go out of his way to protect them. Brief History
: Rhys was the only child of an English Knight and his Welsh bride. Early on Rhys displayed a keen interest in knowing how and why things worked as well as a certain charm with women. However, as the son of a Knight his future was pretty much planned for him and not wanting to disappoint he upheld his duty and followed in his father's footsteps.
Due to his size and ferocity on the battlefield, Rhys developed quite a reputation in his years of service despite the prevalent attitudes of privilege that had overcome most Knights of his time. In addition to this, Rhys of course developed a reputation for seducing many women, even some he perhaps shouldn't have. However, with his charm and the strength of his form he avoided most trouble until one day the seducer found himself seduced in turn.
He did not know where she came from or who she belonged to, but from the moment he laid eyes on her he had to have her. With hair as black as night, eyes as clear as day and lips that he swore hid a secret, she wove her spell around him. There was no caution in him and he openly pursued her, taking her subtle cues as evidence of her interest. Every night he would sneak off with her wherever they could find privacy. Every night he would ask her to tell him who she was and where she had come from but always she flashed him a smile infused with her seductive charm and he would forget to pursue the answers to his questions.
He could not truly complain, for a man such as himself had a large appetite that was not easily handled, yet every morning he would wake in his bed feeling sated, though he could never recall details. It did not bother him enough to question and if it had, he would have been promptly urged to forget in favor of pleasure. He did not know what manner of enchantress she was, in fact, it wasn't until he felt a stirring at his side one night and roused himself that he truly discovered. As he clawed his way from the dirt with confusion, his eyes were opened to a whole new world that shook him to his very core.
He could have reacted with fear and violence but instead, after the first few moments of confusion, he turned to his maker and asked but one question: why? She told him plainly that she had not meant to change him. He was but a distraction for her, something that fed her hungers and let her separate from the monster inside her for just a little while before she had to return to her duty. However, this last time she had gotten carried away and before she knew it, he was dying beneath her. She couldn't justify such a waste of potential so she embraced him and fed him her blood, sealing his fate.
Life as a Knight had indeed left its mark upon him and he found the strength in his new body to be intoxicating. The clarity with which he saw things astounded him and with little nudging he accepted and adapted to his altered fate. He served at his Maker's side for more than a decade before she finally released him and Rhys set off on his own.
With a keen eye for mechanics and learning the how and why of things, it was simple enough for Rhys to find ways to build his legacy. A small invention here, a new design there, along with the occasional service as a mercenary for hire and sound investments and Rhys was able to build himself a fortune large enough to ensure that he would never be at the mercy of another. Currently has his fingers in several media pies and is a movie producer, as well as the occasional appearance as a model or actor (not enough that he is recognized on the street or anything). He also retains his status as a guard/assassin for hire.Turn On's
