Character: Vampires

Post  Grimoire .D Valentine on Mon Dec 13, 2010 8:43 am

Vampires are mythological or folkloric beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence (generally in the form of blood) of living creatures, regardless of whether they are undead or a living person.[1][2][3][4][5][6] Although vampiric entities have been recorded in many cultures and in spite of speculation by literary historian Brian Frost that the "belief in vampires and bloodsucking demons is as old as man himself", and may go back to "prehistoric times",[7] the term vampire was not popularized until the early 18th century, after an influx of vampire superstition into Western Europe from areas where vampire legends were frequent, such as the Balkans and Eastern Europe,[8] although local variants were also known by different names, such as vrykolakas in Greece and strigoi in Romania. This increased level of vampire superstition in Europe led to mass hysteria and in some cases resulted in corpses actually being staked and people being accused of vampirism.

While even folkloric vampires of the Balkans and Eastern Europe had a wide range of appearance ranging from nearly human to bloated rotting corpses, it was the success of John Polidori's 1819 novella The Vampyre that established the archetype of charismatic and sophisticated vampire; it is arguably the most influential vampire work of the early 19th century,[9] inspiring such works as Varney the Vampire and eventually Dracula.[10]

However, it is Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula that is remembered as the quintessential vampire novel and which provided the basis of modern vampire fiction. Dracula drew on earlier mythologies of werewolves and similar legendary demons and "was to voice the anxieties of an age", and the "fears of late Victorian patriarchy".[11] The success of this book spawned a distinctive vampire genre, still popular in the 21st century, with books, films, video games, and television shows. The vampire is such a dominant figure in the horror genre that literary historian Susan Sellers places the current vampire myth in the "comparative safety of nightmare fantasy".[11]

Story: A 'lone-wolf', the Expert Gunslinger that Tenik has to offer. Part of the Elite Red5ive TIRS unit, he is a difficult opponent. He has been only a special few non-pure blooded vampires to walk in the daylight without being affected.

Grimoire has been around a very long time. He has seen civilizations fall and rise; loved ones wither and die. He accepts his fate of being forced to walk the entire planet for the rest of it's days. He has a blood pact to Tenik Incorporated-he is to be in Tenik's service for the rest of his days till Tenik releases him. He is unable to touch any members of the Tenik Family, and he has to abide by their law till they release him as just stated. This is because out of fear of Grimoire becoming a Vampire, by Alexander II Tenik; and when he was released by Alexander XIII Tenik (Rufus's Father), he forced Grimoire into his employment forever.

Mu-Irzik Arena has bekoned him back, and he has returned at the sole whim of Everin Faust. Not caring for the competition's prize, but really to just get there and give what Everin want's...

(Will update story at the outcome of that battle)
