Usual Human Form
Morgan Valentine; Typically is referred to as 'Valentine;' Also known as the 'Silent Reaper.'Age:
Somewhere between 500 and 2000; He doesn't quite remember as time tends to blend together; Typical human form looks to be late 20s or early 30s.Gender:
Male, Female, Neither, Genderfluid; as a shapeshifter, gender honestly doesn't matter even though he typically uses male forms and pronouns.Sexuality:
Fear Entity; Fear Entities feed off of fear unlike some Entities that feed off of lust, happiness, sorrow, or other emotions. In his natural form, he looks a near featureless humanoid creature that, from a distance, could look like a human with a major latex fetish. The human form he normally takes looks like an aristocrat, dressing in well made, high quality suits. However, he can focus on any one person and become the embodiment of their deepest, darkest fear x100! Basically, he literally scares his prey to death and feeds off that fear! Normally, an Entity of his type can live off the fear of one human a month, but Valentine prefers to feed once every three days to mitigate the risk of weakening. For a Fear Entity, the longer they go without feeding, the weaker they become. That 'monster under the bed' or the 'monster in the closet' are severely weakened Fear Entities that barely have the strength to feed off the fear of small humans. It sometimes takes decades before a weakened Fear Entity gains the strength to move out of it's refuge and into the world where more succulent prey exists. Fear Entities are virtually immortal, but one can cause them to become so weak that it could take centuries before the Entity has returned to even half its original strength.Position:
Valentine is a very pricey, highly skilled defense lawyer who works for anyone who can pay his price, human or monster; Judges and anyone opposite of him in the courtroom dread his appearance as convicting whom he is defending is nigh impossible, even when the defendant is all but assuredly guilty; Valentine is also a hitman of sorts for the Family; Though his prices for services rendered are far higher than most anyone, those who pay are all but guaranteed to have their target dead within 36 hours.Personality:
No matter his form, he is always calm, cool, and collected. Valentine views all who are beneath him to be nothing but statistics and prey. In court, he is a shark made man, able to convince almost any jury to vote in his favor. His stare is often extremely cold and seems to chill the very soul. Few mortals can maintain eye contact for more than a few seconds. Despite his cold and calculating demeanor, he is often hard to predict and almost always seems to have an ace up his sleeve. In his human form, he is extremely wealthy and flaunts it by always wearing designer clothes and driving expensive vehicles. In his normal form, when stalking prey, he prefers to draw out the fear as long as possible. He generally dislikes violence, thus a typical feeding leaves the victim with stiff joints, wide, staring eyes, and a permanent mask of sheer terror. When a body is found, there is never a mark on them and most assume it is a drug overdose. Rarely does he resort to violence, but when he does, not even a horror movie can equal the results.Backstory:
Most of Valentine's history is a blur, to be perfectly honest. The past is the past and he can't change it, so why bother dwelling on it? He doesn't know exactly when he was....born? Created? The first thing he remembers was back in the 14th century where he enjoyed dining upon the fears of peasants and royalty alike as they panicked while the Great Plague ravished the populace. At the time, he was posing as a healer of sorts. It was an interesting period of his life where he could feed without ever needing to expend energy on becoming something horrific.
As time flowed, Valentine lived many lives in many places around the known world. Over time, he collected a sizable wealth that has come from many, many lifetimes of wise spending. Over the ages, he was drawn towards places where wars, plagues, chaos, and especially fear reigned supreme. He had nothing to fear from mortal weapons and any foolish mortal who didn't take his warnings seriously.....just disappeared.
Eventually, in this new, modern age, Valentine found himself drawn to a city where corruption and the underworld kept the innocents looking over their shoulder. When he arrived, he found that there were many, many Entities who have formed packs and gangs, but none were anywhere near as experienced or as strong as he. In but a few short days, all of the city's Entities were put in their places and knew to never cross him. From that point, he was able to form a new identity and quickly form a reputation as one of the city's more terrifying lawyers.
The local law enforcement took an instant dislike of him, but they knew that there was nothing they could do after he won in the court of law. However, one detective seemed to not get the memo and spent months following him everywhere and borderline harass him at every opportunity. Eventually, the detective found a very flimsy probable cause to enter his home and preform a search. As one would expect, nothing was found that would incriminate him. The detective was quickly removed from the force after Valentine had a few words with the mayor, some judges, and the police chief. The detective continued to do what she could in order to confirm her suspicions, whatever they were. Valentine didn't care, but it was getting boring now that more than a year had passed. So, on the eve of the new year, Valentine visited the detective and savored her screams of terror and panic as she lay paralyzed by sheer terror. Oh, it was one of the best feedings he ever had, over ten hours of slow, drawn out fear. Of course, when her body was found, it was assumed she had overdosed as there were no marks on her body and no signs of breaking and entering. The case was closed, despite some friends of her still not believing that she did that to herself.
It was then that Valentine met the one called 'Arsenic' and was offered a place in the Family as a defender of member who needed it (and could afford it) as well as a specialized hitman. The deal remains that if one cannot afford him, they can go to 'Arsenic' to plead a loan. If the loan is not returned after a set amount of time, then Valentine would come and.....extract it. Few have ever failed to return the loan, but those that were unable......just disappeared.Ons and Offs: Right Here
