Lycia is a confident woman. Then again, surviving for over a thousand years would make any master vampire confident as there are very few of them that are that old and not a council member. How has she survived this long? By using her head and her skills with her body. Knowing when to fight, and to lie in wait for the moment to strike. It also helps that she is not ashamed to use sex as leverage in any thing. She even finds it amusing that what she once found shameful and humiliating, now a gift and strength. Lycia is not the same woman she was as a mortal. She has back bone, and a stubborn streak that has helped her through hard times, and get revenge in the past. Needless to say Lycia is not one to underestimate.
Due to this Lycia is willing to do what ever it takes to get what she wants that benefits her, and if it happens to benefit the Kiss so be it. She is not beneath to manipulating people for this to work, nor undercut a person in a business prospect to gain a leverage over a person. She is also not one to ask permission of anyone below her in power and position. She'll take what she pleases so long as she knows it won't upset those above her in power and rank. Normally when she does this, however, it is normally giving her a boost in power or leverage in power on a political level.
Though many vampires dislike fire due to them burning much more easily, Lycia fears it because of the possibility of loosing her beauty. She prides her beauty since her transformation, and has made sure to do her best to not get scarred too badly. Due to being so vain it is considered a weakness as well as it can be used against her should she get captured for information. Granted those that have earned her loyalty to a fault, she has sacrificed her beauty before to protect information. She has merely been lucky so far to be near another Belle Morte who could mend the flesh and restore her beauty. Lycia is also egotistical enough to strive to be as strong and powerful as Belle Morte herself one day. Finding that to be her ultimate goal.
Though she is a Belle Morte, she is not preferably a lover. She is a fighter, and when push comes to shove she'll show some a person just how well she can fight to protect that which she claims as hers, and to protect the Kiss members that look up to the Masters for protection. Just because she's willing to fight for them, does not mean she won't dish out punishment either should she be slighted personally, or the younger vampire risks the safety of the Kiss. Just as she was raised with a firm hand, she believes in the showing the same thing when it comes to teaching younger vampires so long as their status in the Kiss is not greater than her's.
When it comes to personal relationships in her bedroom, Lycia is easily a flip. Being dominant if the male shows signs of submission, or submitting to a partner who can show they can control her in bed. She has a variety of kinks that she doesn't reveal, but instead relishes to see if her partner can discover them. After all exploring is one of the most exciting things to Lycia.
WHAT ARE YOU?
Bloodline: Belle Morte
Title: None at the moment
Power Level: Master
- Superhuman Strength-(Starting) Vampires are extremely strong, though it is debatable as to whether a vampire or lycanthrope is, generally speaking, stronger.
- Preternatural Healing- (Starting) Vampires heal at a rate even surpassing that of lycanthropes. Wounds, even those caused by bullets, heal within seconds and they have an uncanny ability to regenerate from even the worst harm imaginable. With few exceptions, vampires cannot become ill. Vampires are still susceptible to lasting harm from sunlight, silver and holy objects.
- Preternatural Speed and Agility[-(Starting) Vampires are capable of moving faster than can be tracked by the human eye.
- Enhanced Senses-(Starting) Vampire senses are amplified to a nearly unimaginable level. Their sense of smell is heightened to the point that they can detect subtle changes in a humans emotions. Their sense of hearing is so acute as to hear a whisper from one hundred feet away, and their sense of sight so keen as to give them unchallenged night vision.
- Preternatural Endurance- (Starting) This gives the vampire incomparable stamina.
- Healing Tongue (20 Points) [+1 Power] This power allows vampires to close the wounds caused by their own bites if they use it within 2 minutes of the original bite, preventing their victims from bleeding out. This power is limited to wounds the vampire has caused themselves and cannot be used on wounds caused by other vampires.
- Detect Love- (Starting) A Belle Morte vampire with this ability is able to see people's aura's and know if they would be compatible enough to date. This does not allow them to see if the people are soul mates...just compatible enough to get along to date...or at least have one night flings.
- Reading Minds- (40 Points) [+2 Power] A vampire with this ability is able to detect the surface thoughts of most untrained creatures. This will not work on people with a greater power level.
- Human Servant Creation- (20 Points) [+1 Power] This power gives vampires the ability to mark a human as a servant. A human servant is analogous to a witches’ familiar, and serves to amplify the vampire’s power. The servant also receives a jump in power and abilities.
I. Second Mark: (35 points) [+2 Power to Vampire and Human]
- Call Cats- (Master) (30 Points). [+2 Power] Instead of choosing an animal to call, a descendant of Belle Morte may elect to call one of the large species at a lower $BB cost. She can call Leopards.
- Animal Servant Creation-(Required Call Animal, must be same species) (20 Points) [+1 Power] This power gives vampires the ability to mark a lycanthrope counterpart to their animal to call as a servant. An animal servant is analogous to a witches’ familiar, and serves to amplify the vampire’s power. The servant also receives a jump in power and abilities. Leopard
I. Second Mark: (35 points) [+2 Power to Vampire and Lycanthrope]
-Ardeur-(Master) (60 Points) [+4 Power] This power allows the vampire to feed on sex and lust in lieu of blood for a time. This is a hunger that must be fed and satisfied between 2 to 3 times a week or else the Arduer will lash out on it's own and force the vampire to do the feeding...all in all it's a nasty thing and for Lycia this is a curse.
Triumvirate- (80 Points) [+5 Power]This power allows a vampire to acquire both an animal and a human servant. Note: This $BB cost is in addition to the costs of acquiring each servant individually. This allows for a stronger link between the three where the power boost is greater. The three people also start to take on traits of the other two due to the tighter bond this is. The down side...is that if one dies it increases the chance of the other two dying as well, and when one is hurt the others are weakened just as badly as if they received the wound as well.
WHERE DO YOU COME FROM?
All dead so it doesn't matter.
Other important people:
Jane and Emmett...twins that she turned.
Lycia was born a long, long time ago. In a land that still exists today, but the culture vastly changed. She was born during ancient Rome. When it was known as Latin instead of Italian. She was born to a lower class family who barely made ends meet. Her parents barely bringing in enough food each day to feed herself and two other siblings. Though school was an option, Lycia did not stay in it long. At the age of fourteen she was working in a laundry business to help bring in more income, and when she turned sixteen she turned to a different profession. She turned to becoming a whore and working in a brothel. Though Christianity was reigning freely and welcomed, did not mean that sins disappeared, and ignored.
Sex has always been one of the greatest sins of all time. One of the greater ones to boot as it is seen as the means of the greatest gifts God had given man. Reproduction. However men are pigs (most of them) and thus they had needs. Needs that sometimes wives could not satisfy. As a result brothels were sought out though they were not always seen as thus. This is what Lycia turned to at sixteen. A life of letting men use her. She was ashamed of it and always felt dirty, and yet it always brought a good in come for her family so that they hardly scrapped to get by. Instead they now lived comfortably but not overly so. Anything that she had extra that could have gone to spoils, Lycia gave to the local church or orphanage. Feeling that if she donated this money it would help minimize the dirt on her slate when she died and went forth for judgement.
Then times got harder due to illness that started to run through Rome. Medicine became hard and at the age of twenty, Lycia was the only one able to work as her parents became sick. Soon just her income was not enough, and she attempted to work more at the brothel, but soon her siblings fell ill as well. Lycia felt over whelmed, and she wished that she could be like the ladies that went to the royal men. Knowing that they would pay well enough to get the medicine she needed for her family. In time she lost each member to the illness, and each time she did she died a little bit to the point where she didn't care about her life. She had given up. Felt more filthy and shame because of her job than she did before as she had no reason to do it other than to do it.
One night a lady patron came in, a rare thing for their business, and many women volunteered to please herd (as there were no men at the establishment). Though this woman had plenty of volunteers, she had passed them over as her eyes would land upon Lycia. She was chosen to be her partner that night and she felt lost. She had never bedded a woman before and she was sure her behavior indicated this as she tried to refuse. However the woman insisted, and at the risk of loosing the work that kept her alive...Lycia finally caved and went to do what ever the woman wanted.
For the woman that had come that night was none other than Belle Morte herself. She had been in the area on business, and had the need to feed the Arduer. Despite the fact that Lycia looked thinner than she normally was, Belle could see the beauty that she had once had. She felt sorry for the girl, and anger for the beauty that was being lost due to the neglect that Lycia started to show to just merely live the day-by-day life. As Belle was never one to let beauty be lost, she made the offer that she could help Lycia be restored to health, and live a life of power. As Lycia had no reason to refuse due to having no one to hold her back, she accepted. It also helped that fear drove her. Not wanting to die at a young age for any reason and that was what she felt. Like she was dying. Over the next three nights Belle fed from her, and Lycia welcomed it with open arms because of that fear; and she died for a short time.
Though she was far from that for many years. Lycia relished in the bloodlust and for the first decade as her life as a vampire she relished in the killing and drinking. For the first decade she was allowed to be more free due to being a fledgling. However starting into her second decade, Belle began to reign her in. At first Lycia resisted, but in the end Belle would win. Belle had powers beyond what she could imagine and she had become one of her "pets" as she called them for a while. When she was released she retaliated in anger and lashed out with killings involving sex. As a result Belle punished her by locking her away in a cross sealed coffin. This one got through to Lycia, as well as the threat that if she was reckless again...she would be killed.
Instead she would become what many would say Belle's prodigy. She learned how to win nobles hearts for their money, blackmail to aide the vampires secretly, and to help start wars. She was becoming a perfect child of Belle Morte once she started to enjoy the life. Thus was her life for the first two hundred years. Learning every trick that Belle would teach her and mastering them one at a time. Doing the bidding of The Council and becoming an emissary for them when vampires needed to be approached about anything. When she hit two hundred years old, she bloomed more by stepping up to the power of master. She no longer depended upon her to rise at night and she was able to move more freely it would seem though her loyalties were with the Council.
With her new status Lycia was given more responsibilities, to know more secrets, and handle the younger ones better. She would be one of the Masters they would send new vampires to to learn how to do glamor as she did her's rather well, and how to hide what they were until they reached the age it was no longer possible. Her loyalties would remain strong, in fact, until 1492. It was the year that Columbus would set sail for the America's. The Council worried on what this could mean, and she was assigned to join as a settler to the new land. With some rolling, seduction, and convincing Lycia was one of the first new settlers to the America's.
It was on this trip that she would experience love for the first time. Not just having sex love, but truly falling for a person. His name was Emmett Smith, and his twin sister was with him to go to the new land. He had no interest in her what so ever, and that seemed to only fuel her desire and love for him more. She eventually wanted to tell him what she was, but first she went to his sister. The reaction...was not what she was hoping for. Lets just say in the end the only way she'd be able to have Emmett was if him and his sisters were vampires as well. Just as she got done with turning Jane, Emmett walked in, and she had to turn him sooner than she wanted. Needless to say for the next week she felt guilt for the way she had done things. Not that she done them, only how she had to do it.
In the next three nights she had two new fledglings under her. She came to learn how difficult it is to teach and came to respect Belle a bit more due to how hard it was. However she was determined to make the best of it. Using the same strong and firm hand that was used on her, she was able to train them up to control their thirst and their growing powers. Thus was their life for the next few hundred years. Exploring the new land, and reporting to the council. In time they returned to The Council's headquarters, and her two children got a taste of the world she had always known. For the next two hundred or so years, Lycia's life was simple. She had Emmett as her lover finally, Jane had found a position for herself in something (as she never saw her again), and she followed Council orders as given.
During this time with the changes in technology and the sin of men growing, as well as women, Lycia opened up a business that she called Nighting Gales. A strip club as well as an escort service for the...Upper Class folks. The business went so well that in time over the centuries, Lycia opened up a chain of them all in her name. Though to make up for it she would give a good 40% of her income to The Council as she was staying in their accommodations and they had her loyalties. This helped with them in time as soon they would have to start paying authority figures to hide deaths and the like. Due to her aid, The Council started to require tithes from all vampires who had their own business to keep up with the changing times as they remained hidden.
Then just a week ago, Belle discovered Emmett. He was a handsome male, and knowing how Belle thought of beauty, Lycia had made sure they never met...until now. She had served Belle faithfully, especially in the last few centuries wars. Helping causing them...to fuel them, and the like. Now...now Lycia knew she was going to have a falling out. Belle became obsessed with Emmett when she finally met him. Lycia became jealous, and fearful for Emmett never became a master. So one night she did the only thing she knew they could do. They fled. They fled to the land she had turned them in...and that now held sanctuary to many vampires. Lycia and Emmett ran to America so that Emmett would not become one of Belle's many play things. It angered Belle, Lycia was sure, but she did not want to loose someone she considered her lover.
Two days ago an assassin was sent after them when their treachery was discovered. One of The Harlequin was sent after them, and they had received the mask of death. Lycia and Emmett attempted to run, but to no avail. Their assassin caught up with them. The order was that Lycia's lover was to die. Lycia was overcome with grief at the loss of Emmett as she was no match for The Harlequin assassin, though she had tried. Thus Lycia was left in this state. Numb with grief, and finally she had to push it aside. She could not stay where she was. Thus...is how she found herself to be applying for a stay in Boston...as the Master of the Cities third in command. She is now only waiting for the permission to enter his city and go before Samuel. She intends to open a Nighting Gales in Boston and plans on giving a tithe of the income to the kiss once again.
Shortly after becoming involved with the Kiss, Lycia could not handle it. Her sorrow from her loss had her just leave with no notice. As a result Lycia went into isolation to handle her pain and loss. She found herself a secure and isolated cave, and blocked herself in. Only going out when she needed to feed so as not to go insane. Sleeping her way through the months. Now, feeling more composed and like she can be herself, Lycia is returning. Only she has come to learn that Samuel is no longer the Master of the City, and that chaos is on the verge of flowing out. Lycia returns to Nighting Gales, and prepares herself for what may come...including the possibility of defending the city from power hungry and cruel masters who may want to claim the city for themselves...
