(Made some changes to his outlook and appearance throughout the years as evident through the pictures)Race and Powers:
Lucky can ‘flash’ to short distances in quick succession, he served as a Saracen blade master during the Crusades, intermingled with his vampire self the creature can be deadly with a blade. He keeps a short sword on his self at all times. Trick N’ Time:
The man’s existence is governed by gambits and tricks – he enjoys making deals for things he cannot get otherwise with people he would not fight. He is sly and extremely diplomatic. Memory Altering:
On account of his age, wisdom and experience the vampire is capable of changing the occurance of an event in the victim’s mind.Flight:
Lucky is capable of flying and flashing from one place to another, but to do it constantly is a huge drain on the vampire’s resources. Important Position:
Head and Chairman of the Conglomerate “Needful Things” in Manchester, England. A hub and safe haven for species of all types that are offered harbour in exchange for services rendered, whose front is excavating artefacts, oil drilling and ship breaking/dry docking facilities all over Europe and AfricaHistory:
Sent as an attaché to his envoy, Saladin – Nuruddin also tasked Dani’aal with defensive manoeuvres and guarding the diplomat should anything go awry. As history had it, Saladin ended up controlling Egypt before the Crusading wars and Dani’aal was right at his side through thick and thin.
Laqaf learnt the way of sword at a young age of fourteen; when conscriptions were made he brought his best foot forward to be made part of the Turkish auxiliary that would chase the foreigners out of land. He proved himself to Nuruddin, his former Master by coming to his Captain’s aid when they were cut off from the rest of the army – and later on to Saladin, who barely survived a Heshashin (assassin) assault whilst laying siege to the former Egyptian territories who would not promise allegiance to him.
From the battle of Jacob’s Ford till the siege of Jerusalem, Dani’aal arose in rank and if it wasn’t for his abduction at the night of the victory, the man – like all his equals – would have ceased to exist. But hell had a special place for men like him and the atrocities he committed during war. He was abducted a few miles outside Jerusalem by a Templar contingent. Closer look and three nights spent in their midst proved they were more than just knights. He was used as vessel night after another, drained to reveal what they already knew, but she
had mercy over him in their absence as he laid awaiting his death. Fed and nourished, she was his angel with fangs and bleeding eyes... until the next morning when the search party arrived that killed her and his captives.
As history wrote of new victors and the defeated, Dani’aal struggled to survive until he came upon more Templars who arrested him on sight, being similar creatures as Dani’aal they refused to part with him ‘lest he carry the ‘gift’ back to Saladin, and change the tide of war. The man was taken all the way across Europe where he lived in their captivity for decades until the order was disbanded, and the remainder of their units ‘purged’.
Dani’aal was a free man – for years he fed and lived by his lonesomeness until the man wished for a coven like the Seethes that were sprouting in the region. So one after another he shared his curse with people and made them a part of himself, until he got caught up in the politics and lost his coven, this is where he disappeared in history only to emerge a couple hundred years later during the American revolutionary wars.
Part of the Hessian contingent, once more Dani’aal – now known as Danielson – found himself on the wrong side of the conflict. Defeated, he returned back to the Britain and attempted to begin a coven once again. This time the man made sure not to get involved in any political struggle until the Industrial Age began, and being a man who valued readiness now, he made full use of the new era, and ended up making his business what it is today.
For the last few years he has found himself in America once more in search of an artefact that may remove the curse he suffers from. Back home his coven thinks he is in search of something truly magnificent, but Lucky knows enough is enough – thus the vampire’s search brings him to present day Portland.
