Lets see about my character, well it changes from RP to RP in name and general build. Yet one thing is for sure, he's old by human standards but not very old by Vampire standards. He has use of certain powers and they themselves change every so often. Always ends up fighting something, trouble just follows him eventually.
I will give a few examples of my various character builds. Oh one constant is that my Vampire doesn't burst into flames from the sun, it weakens him the longer he is in it, but it won't kill him. I think of the sunlight as more of a annoyance.
Setting 1: Fantasy Meideval realm, Sir Francis Arcurius once a General of a Calvary Assault Division in Kingdom of Rycor. After the bloody three year war the great King is assassinated and the Kingdom breaks apart in brutal infighting. Francis a know loyalist to the King is hunted down by the Kings assassins. Cornered and wounded alongside a fast flowing river in the Northern Mountains, Francis is cast into the Rapids and left for dead.
The river however flows many places and enters a dark forest, one where sunlight never penetrates and few creatures have eyes to speak of. Here a Convent of Vampires live, and one day Francis's body is discovered washed up near where the Vampire Children fetch fresh water. A young vampire girl, pure blood believes the "treat" to be dead and bites into him. Francis suddenly wakens and the girl flees screaming. Scared and half alive Francis struggles to walk and travels deep into the forest.
There the curse takes him, collapsing he dies besides a cliff. Many hours pass and his body transforms, then he begins to wander, not awake more like a zombie. Then after several days his body pale and his hunger strong he comes across a trail and a small cottage along side the trail. There he takes his first victim and upon feeding he is reborn. Centuries pass and the world is much the same as it was, however the once strong peaceful Kingdom of Rycor is replaced with a evil Dominion. Francis learns quickly what it takes to survive and lives in the shadows alone.
This would be the point where the young lass enters, and well you can imagine the rest.
Setting 2: Present Day Realm, Noah Lionheart has been a Vampire since birth, when his mother was biten during her pregnancy. Noah is rare as most human children die in the womb when their mother becomes turned. He is born a halfbreed, able to walk in the light more than most Vampires. His powers didn't mature until he reached 16 years old, then he began to roam the streets looking for those like him.
He is found and mentored by a old man, a man of great knowledge of the underworld. He is trained in his vampire abilities. The mentor dies of cancer leaving him alone. Noah is then approached by a friend of the old man the founder of a corporation. The corporation protects the humans from the evils of the world but also those non humans that wish to just live in peace. Something happens recently and some corporation executives are found murdered. This is when Noah finds a girl running away from home, sleeping on a park bench, the winter cold stealing her life right in front of his watchful eyes. He waits for her last breaths and steals her chance to die.
Setting 3: Future Realm. Living on a resort planet Bryan Yates is a carefree kid until one day a raid of Space Vampires attacks his town and kill all of his family. Those that survive are captured and hauled off to the mothership to be turned into food, farmed for their blood. Once aboard Bryan breaks free from his captures when a Rival Vampire Clan attacks the ship.
He stows away in the Rival ship and is discovered while he sleeps by a member of the crew. He is however not treated like a prisoner and brought to the Captain of the ship. He is informed that ship is filled with Vampires who were once human victims of attacks by the true Space Vampires and there mission is to rid the universe of there evil kind. Bryan agrees to join them and undergoes the changing.
Several years later after a successful raid on a Vampire outpost Bryan discovers a group of human survivors. They are rescued and brought safely to the nearest safe Planet, but a young girl takes immense interest in Bryan and vows to stick with him.
Those are a few of the ideas I was thinking of. As you can probably tell by the length of the settings, I got very tired as I wrote these out. If these is anything you like and or questions, even a suggestion or two let me know.
