@Miss Red:
While that sounds unlikely, I won't stop it from happening, because that might happen on occasion. (especially if you like the idea) To put things in persepective of how I think that might cause problems, putting a subordinate in charge of a colony is like putting a High School Graduate in charge of an entire Country. xD Depending on the individual vampire, a subordinarte's confidence usually does'nt match that of the Beta, who was a vampire longer, and therefore, a more adequate replacement in the colony. Maybe what chooses the vampiric ranking is merely how long the vampire has been a vampire, or how much experience the vampire has had. I would imagine that a subordinate that was dumped with the responsabilities of a beta or alpha, or at least presented with the prospect of taking charge of his/her colony,  would need to learn how to make big decisions confidently, since being in charge in a colony would mean more then bossing vampires around. He/she would need to be able to convince the colony that his/her orders matter, and have positive effects on everyone in the colony, and be able to be trusted fully enough to gain their support. An Alpha, being the oldest and more or less, most wise in the colony, automaticly have the trust and support of most of the colony members, be it because of his or her wisdom, strength or a force of habit from the colony. Betas take some time to gain trust from the colony when replacing the alpha, I would imagine, because after putting so much faith in an an authoritative individual, to only watch him or her suddenly vanish from the picture, would effect the entire colony in many different ways. Putting that same trust in a beta would take time.
Putting that trust in a random subordinate, someone who would usually be young or niave, or inexperienced, would probably take a lot of time, hard work, and perhaps the support of someone older, who the colony had presumed to become the alpha.
:-D

It's an elaborate question to answer, with too many variables and interesting concepts to just say no too. Go have fun with these ideas, I won't stop it from happening.

And asking questions is okay with me. ^,^
They're so much fun to answer, I'm figuring out things i have'nt thought of. D: *is mind blown*

@Talli
It's fine! :D And you're totally free to do as you need too when you start. James is NPC, so all rpers are free to roleplay as them until someone has claimed them as a profile.

I probably will end up only hinting at what I'm using all these questions for, and actually use them later in the RP. I'll attempt to create plausible reasons by then, and if not... they can remain unknown until I do.  ;)

A highschool graduate put in charge of entrie country you say... Well, that wouldn't lead to a enjoyable outcome in any scenario, would it? Haha.
I appreciate that you took the time to respond to my questions, and actually answer them, not just give a vague reply. And I'll be sure to ask any more if I think of some - I always have a strange question or two that has absolutely nothing to do with the plotting going in my mind, ones I'm just asking to satisfy some strange urge. Like if vampires are able to change into animals other then bats or something. I dunno.  :D

That last question was an example. Just thought I'd let you know. xD

Okeydokey, I like answering questions, you come up with really good ones. ^,^

And hypotheticly, yes, and it's up to the rper if he or she wants to use a an enchanted piece of wearable jewelery to change into a bat or bat-like creature, or naturally like a lycanthrope-type transformation. If the example answer were provided to the example question, this would be it. :-D

Should I post a picture and short bio (name, age, gender, etc.) of Devon and Julius? They're Olivia's "missing" Alpha and Beta, and just thought it'd be nice to have faces to go with the names. Or I could ad them to my sign-up profile, of course.  :-)

@ MissRed:
Oh you certainly can do that, if you want to. ^,^ I'll save any edits you make later tonight if you decide to. It's completely optional. Maybe I should add a NPC character list, or a list of related colonies.

I'm dying to reply back to the rp, but i'm on my 3DS, which is'nt the best thing to write a few paragraphs of vampire-awesome. xP
I'll certainly do so later tonight though, If I can, while i'm tweaking this and that.

Here are Devon and Julius!  :-) Devon looks a bit scruffy and plain for a vampire, I suppose, but that's intentional on his part. No need to prove that he's an Alpha through appearance when he had no need to - he was already known as one. Julius became blind shortly after Devon left, and I'm thinking that maybe the Hawkens had something to do with it, and they are also perhaps part of the reason why he fled. *Plotting*

I do have a question, can a vampire go rogue? The idea behind my character is that the vampire had meant to kill off his prey but she had lived despite what happened mind you she doesn't remember anything nor will she ever really remember. The man who made her finds out and taunts her later on but that would be the extent of the violence. If this is not an applicable option perhaps he was in the process of changing her when him and his 3 beta's were attacked by a rival colony and she was thought dead and left there and so when she awoke the scene was horrific enough she has no recollection of what happened and is to have nothing of the past except maybe run into the person who killed her would be master and he just teases her a bit mocking her loneliness and hunger until finally taking pity and taking her in himself. Something of the sorts would work if neither of those would.

I would think it would be okay, but if you don't mind, try staying with in the PG-13 rating. :) No violent descriptions of gore or blood, guts and things if you please.
But sure, vampires can go rogue, created by accident, and/or be abandond or disowned by their creator vampires. I won't stop you from developing your character's backstory. ^,^ It sounds very interesting.

I will ninja-pounce you if you don't stay PG-13 though :-D

Update
The Roleplay Passcode is no longer:
Pyrimid of Sponges or The Cake is a Lie.

No major changes in the roleplay or accepted characters.
Roleplay Passcode was changed to make sure new character applicants read the rules.

Don't worry the only thing she remembers is 'cold lifeless bodies' and 'that face' neither of which should pass the pg 13 point, nor go into detail on blood nor other yucky things. The taunting of this pawn character I'm writing in my head merely teases her, she's all alone, look the lost stray found a home, but has she found her mommy? Her precious mommy that she cried for?

I know way to give it away but I want to make sure I'm not bordering any thing that will get me suddenly un approved.

All caught up :3 just wondering, can i have my character as a sort of 'bounty hunter/sword for hire' type person?

I'm not sure exactly why yet, but he's not been a colony member for at least a few years now, and i get the feeling he's going to be a type of vampire looked down upon by nearly all others, since he takes work on for human clients mostly.

@Medias:
I posted, so catch up again!  ;)

I wouldn't know if that's alright, but I assume it is, seeing how she basically gave us free rein with backgrounds. Not being a colony member for a few years entails that they're presumably a loner as well, which are typically (as per what I've gathered) looked down upon. I'm not totally positive if humans would impact that, seeing how there are probably a few vampires mainstreaming and living among humans instead of their own kind - but if Lunar is a bounty hunter who kills other members of the undead, I see why he'd be unwanted and outcast.

@AutoTune:
I didn't know quite what to post, since Helana's attention was directed towards Korra, but posted anyway :'D I dunno if it makes any sense, but yeah. I'd say I could edit it if it's not alright, but since I can't...

That's partially correct, I would say; gennerally, depending on the personal views of individuals, Colony Vampires are protective of their territory, supply of available humans, and are especially wary of strangers if the colony is training young, vunurable vampires, who are easilly adoptable in other colonies.

Loners are more or less indipendent, and either don't like or don't prefer companionship with humans or vampires. Attitudes from both parties toward the other varies.

And your post looks fine. ^,^

A vampire who works for humans? *shudders* That sounds scary for vampires. Well....For some reason this makes me frown at the screen a little bit, I'm not sure.
If possible, he could 'drive out' aggressive loner vampires from overly congested territories, or he could be allowed as some kind of Alpha-Exterminator who randomly attack humans, or something. Right now, I made it a rule to not drive out colonies from their home bases, and to not go on rage-kill sprees. xD

Your character can be a certain kind of 'hunter' for the humans, I would just prefer a one that did'nt randomly kill or drive out every vampire in sight. Perhaps Problematic Vampires that are careless, aggressive or dangerous to humankind? Or maybe a *gulps* human body guard?
Up to you, I'll try not to restrain your ideas.
