Alright, so I have just begun to read some of Christine Feehan, "Dark" series, and I find myself itching to do an rp based on the premise. While I would really appreciate it if anyone who is interested has actually read at least one of the books, that's not really necessary. Particularly because I want to do this rp with our own characters rather than using characters already made in the book.
I can give an overview of the premise, and any thoughts and questions are more than welcome.
Carpathians are a race of people that are somewhat like vampires. Carpathians survive by drinking the blood of humans, but unlike vampires, they do not kill their human prey. A Carpathian male "turns" into a vampire when he kills while feeding, loses his lifemate, or fails to find his lifemate. On the other hand, vampires are Carpathians that succumb to their desires and actually kill humans for blood and for the rush of power they get when doing so. Carpathians have telepathic abilities that enables them to bring humans to them in order to feed, and then use those same abilities to erase the humans’ memory of doing so.
Carpathians mate for life. And this has a HUGE impact on whether or not a Carpathian becomes a vampire. It is extremely important for a male Carpathain male to find his lifemate. This is because, after 200 years, a male Carpathian loses the ability to feel emotions, sexual desire and see in color. Finding his lifemate brings back all of this.
Now, this is all fine and dandy, but Carpathians are now on the brink of extinction, and the last female Carpathian born was over five hundred years ago. This leaves the remaining males with the choice to either become a vampire, or virtually commit suicide. Luckily, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. It appears as though human psychics somehow have the correct chemistry to not only be a lifemate to a Carpathian, but also survive the transformation into becoming one.
I want to do an rp with two original characters, a Carpathian male, and a human psychic.
If you have any questions about this, just pm me.
