Lord Alan Ardington of CarindelRace:
Born in 1581, early Elizabethan Era, to Barron Marik Ardington of Carindel. A lost land in Europe. Whilst away at war, Barron Marik fell in love with a peasant girl, Erika Silverwind. Unfortunately the woman was of the Germanic tribes, and such a love was frowned upon. So after the night they spent together Marik left the village and continued his campaign.
Six months later the war was finally over, Barron Mark was proclaimed a war hero, and those born of the Germanic empire were allowed to cross over. After 2 months of searching Marik found Erica again and brought her to his castle to wed her. When she arrived, he saw that she was to sire a child. Marik treated Erika to anything she could ever want. They were happy and in love.
When there child came into existence, so did Erika leave our world. It was said that her body could not survive the process of giving birth to a child of the gift. Marik's only love was gone and all that remained was their half blooded son. Marik named the child Alan which in the Carindailian language meant 'Destroyer of Beauty'. Though Marik blamed his bastard son for the death of Erika, his only love, he was not abusive or scornful to his son. No, he was distracted. His servants by the order of the Barron preserved Erika's body within a glass case, underneath the castle, and Mark searched for a way to bring her back.
By Alan's 12th birthday, his father introduced a man to him. His name was Rorik Bal, a man who was to become his fathers adviser. Something about this man amazed Alan. He had a power about him that none before have had. The man noticed as well that Alan was special. Marik had found a man who had promised he could bring his wife back to him and they would be reunited once again. This was true, but it wasn't what Marik had in mind.
Rorik and Marik built a laboratory underneath the castle and began to create things that should not be. Sometimes a servant would go missing, and no one would ask why. For years Alan was left to run the court while his father would be missing and turn up weeks later drunk, or dstracted. Marik grew obsessed, and when Alan was 14, he had finally got what he had wanted.
Rorik told the Baron that he had figured it all out. It didn't take him years however, he knew how to do it all along, but he needed time to plot. Rorik was really a leader of one of the Germanic tribes. He intended to kill Marik and rule over Carindale, when Rorik preformed his black spell on Erika, she rose from her imprisonment. But the thing that stood before Marik was not his love but an abomination against nature. A mindless walking corpse. "This is what you wanted!" yelled Rorik "and now you will be reunited." Marik drew his sword to cut down Rorik and the abomination, but to late. Fire jumped from Rorik's fingertips, fast as lightning. Marik Brought down his mighty sword and cleaved it clean through the Roriks right arm and the body of his wife. The disruption of magic caused an explosive reaction and the castle burned, along with everything inside it.
The fire felt like thousands of snake bites as Alan felt the flame dance across his skin, while he lie screaming in his bed, and then their was darkness. When he awoke, he lie bandaged upon a bead, and Rorik sitting over him bringing him into consciousnesses. Rorik told him that his father had died in the fire and that he had saved his life because he had a destiny. When Alan was able to walk again, his entire body was covered in scars, everything but his face. Throughout the years Rorik taught Alan how to use his power in a dark way. Alan grew prideful with that power. He now was able to control whether a life would live or die. Something about watching the life energy fade in a persons eyes, made him feel excited. He courted many women, for he was beautiful, but after every night they would be found dead, by some servant or his Master. He wasn't angry at them, but he knew they were looking at his scars with distaste. They smiled at him as if he didn't know they thought he was ugly. They only wanted his power, and he didn't think someone who was trying to feed off of others should be around. He was doing everyone a favor by getting rid off them. But he let them look beautiful before they died. Showing of every organ so that the word could see their beauty.
Rorik never took Alan back to the kingdom, no, he had different plans. He was going to take Alans body when it was strong enough, so that he would survive the transformation. Rorik would rule without defiance, but Alan could see, he was smart. So when his master was sound asleep Alan stole his Masters grimore and ran. In it was a spell of Immortality.
Alan traveled for many years gaining ever more powerful completing all steps necessary to cast his spell. Unknown to him, through means of alcohol he had sired four children. Two sets of twins. The brothers Armond, Armont, and the sister Angelina, and Kathrine, but this isn't their story.
By the time he was 29 he had completed everything needed to finish his spell. He took control of the Supernatural World as High King for almost 200 years, but then suddenly he disappeared, locked away by his servants to be awakened when the world had changed. He was bored with it all, and wanted to sleep.
Now hundreds of years later his sleeping chamber has finally been disturbed and a power of which he had never felt before fills the air with a sweet scent. The modern world has changed, only vampires of the old would remember the name of Ardington, and the Indoths order had him stricken from the history books. Never again would they allow someone to fall as much as he did. They wished only to keep him a faded memory of the past. Though some had passed his legacy down to their children In bedtime stores. In the minds of the witches of today he is no more real than the boogie man. Personality:
