Angelika- By Pandora
 

 

Angelika- Vampire

Angelika:  Vamp..Valek's favorite plaything.

Discription:  Long ashe blonde hair, green eyes, full red lips. Very feminine build, very soft mannered, almost whispers when she speaks. Originally from Germany. Age 20 when bitten.

Her Story:
 Angelika was the daughter of an army captain under Kaiser Maximilian I rule.. and lived small village near Franconia,Germany in 1503. A very skilled rider, she often rode the properties surrounding one of Valek's castles there.
She met Valek one night while riding, thus beginning a 6 month love affair.They were very passionate lovers during that time,he had promised her that they would spend an eternity together.Only at the time she did'nt realize what he meant. She never knew of his vampirism.
But she also had a secret that she kept from Valek. She had been promised to marry Erich, one of the guards in her father's brigade.Erich had a very promising future in the military, with her father's guidance.
She was fond of Erich, more so like in a brotherly way, but she loved Valek.She had passion with him that did not exist with Erich...upon Erich's return from the frontshe told him of her love for another. Although he was hurt, he promised to announce that it was he who broke the engagement to save her and her family's good name.Unknown to both of them Valek had seen their secret meeting and misinterpreted what was going on. That night while Erich slept in his bed, Valek paid him a visit. The next morning he was found dead, apparently shred to pieces by a vicious wild animal.Other's believed that it was the work of the devil, and that their village was cursed. Then the rumors surrounding Angelika and Valek came to surface.

Angelika's father found out about the affair between his daughter and the rumored monster and his undead army. He swore that he would destroy Valek, his castle and undead children.He forbade his daughter to leave their house, but she always did after everyone went to bed.

 In the weeks to come, Angelika became more and more distant, and unlike herself. Rumours started that she was possessed by Valek, and had become one of the undead.She was examined by the vilage doctor and there was no proof anywhere that she had been actually bitten. But the strange, distant behavior went on.

When her father found out that the affair was still going on, he started a campaign to destroy Valek and his castle, and his undead children.Upon storming the castle, Valek killed Angelika's father, and his undead children wiped out the village. Valek found Angelika hiding in her father's house in the village.In the wake of seeing all of the dead friends, family and loved ones, she realized it was Valek in a jealous rage that murdered her beloved friend Erich. At that moment, Valek grabbed her and drove his fangs into her neck....

After a few days of being ill and looked after by Valek, she realized what he is and what she was to become. Hate and fear washed over her love that she once knew, not long after that she made her escape.

She now lives in hiding ..feeding only upon the greedy, and pompous, rich, womanizing men..they are so easy to seduce. Such easy prey. But her fear is that someday Valek will find her, and his love will destroy her.

Elena- By Lisa

Elena

Name: Elena Vidorich
Nationality: Romanian
Hair Black, Eyes Brown
A Slayer

Orphaned at an early age, Elena was adopted by Professor Ivan Vidorich, a noted scholar of folk tales and parapsychology.  All her life, Elena was plagued by nightmares of wolves, and becoming a wolf...an avid runner, she would wake to find herself deep in the forests, running
from her dream phantoms.
She also has a unique gift of extrasensory perception called psychometry, which sometimes allows her to sense events or persons by handling objects connected to them.

She was educated at the University of Oxford in England, and visited her beloved adopted father as often as she was able. Elena followed in his footsteps, becoming a noted historian, speaking several languages, and possessing an obsessive interest in werewolves and vampires...

Returning home after her tenure as a professor was finished for the term, she found the torn body of Professor Vidorich, and a strange book on the floor beside him. Scrawled in blood beside the body were the words "We are watching you. You cannot escape what you are." The strange book was an ancient Bible that contained a family tree; several names were marked with a medieval word for "werewolf". Her name was the last entered, and it was also noted with this word.

She procured a charm from a gypsy woman that promised to prevent her from succumbing to her wolfen side. She wears it around her neck, never removing it, and constantly worries that her dreams of wolves will become her reality.

She joins an odd assortment of individuals with similar interests in the paranormal, and becomes a vampire slayer quite accidentally while involved in a paranormal investigation. She keeps her secret from the others, afraid that they will find her a threat and destroy her, too...


 

Lance S. Richards By Helen
 


Lance S. Richards

He was born into the endless night in the year of our lord 1155. He was bleeding to death on the battlefield, and was only one of two Knights that survived.

His mentor and vampire father was a sorcerer, who later became known throughout history as the legendary Merlin Lance has other  un-printable names that he prefers to
call him.

His mother whom he loved dearly was the Lady of the Lake, and he has spent a good portion of his 844 years on this Earth looking for her.
He was the protector of King Arthur, and has never forgiven himself for falling in love with the Queen, but he was a brash young Knight very pompous, and had many young Maidens fall into his lair.

He is now the protector of The Grail, the Poor, and the defenseless. He chooses not to kill needlessly and only kills the most evil of the human species, he also hunts down the
most vile of the Nosferatu.

And though legend says that Sir Perceval threw the sword Excalibur into the hand of the Lady of the Lake, he now cares and protects Excalibur, and will continue to do so until his King returns.
