(NOT A TWILIGHT THING. ANYONE EXHIBITING ANY FAIRY-VAMPIRE TENDENCIES WILL BE TIED TO A POLE AND BEATEN... WITH SPAGHETTI.
)The city has a dark side... a dark side that makes a serial killer look like Santa Claus... I've seen them... the great, hairy brutes, bestial and crude... the ice skinned deceivers, clever and quick. They war, they fight... over territory and food... we are the food! I'm not mad, dammit! PLEASE! We need to do something NOW!
- Excerpt from a police interview with now committed detective Liam Bannen.Werewolves
Werewolves can transform at will, and retain full control, though their grip on their forms splinters through the lunar cycle, their often already short fuses turning into blast on contact, blood boiling rage. Each Werewolf is different physically, ranging from more bestial to almost anthropomorphic. Which is a scale that can roughly be translated as least to most intelligence. Werewolves have slightly extended lifespans, ranging past 400 in some cases. Werewolves have to feed about once every two weeks for an average sized one. Large ones often once a week, the runts can go month to month.Vampires
Vampires are deceptive, clever and quick, preferring to use seductive, honeyed words and their superior skill at hiding than all out open combat. A vampire prefers to play the long game, with many years to play with, it's easy to be patient. Vampires have no need to breathe and have pale, cold skin. The sun thing is a myth, however... a false weakness so humans feel they can win. A Vampire is potentially immortal, though they can be killed by removing their head and burying it on hallowed ground. A Vampire that has not fed for too long, a length of time dependant on their stamina in life, they may fall into a coma, and must be awakened by forceful ingestion of blood. Vampires can last about a week per feed, so long as they suck their victim dry.
(So... yeah, it's a war, though neither side has a truly organised fighting corp, and your char's stance on the war could be up to you. Also, and I cannot stress this enough... VAMPIRES are FASTER than WEREWOLVES. WEREWOLVES are STRONGER than VAMPIRES. So any Vampires with super strength will be subject to the aforementioned spaghetti whipping. Ditto superfast werewolves. A vampire CAN be stronger than average, ditto a Werewolf being faster than average, but even the slowest vampire is faster than the fastest werewolf, and similarly the strongest Vampire could still be beaten by the weakest Werewolf. :3)
Name: (Human names please, anyone just called 'Ripfang' better have a damn good excuse in character history. :3)
Age: (Sum total please, not length of time as a werewolf or Vampire)
Appearance: (Please describe/use images for BOTH forms if werewolf.)
(I know I come across as a bit of a... uuuh... fascist here, but I had a very definate idea here, I wanted to avoid Twilight like the plague and I wanted to ensure there was a balance between combat, unique strengths and all. Anyways, enjoy.)
