Scars come with his job, He has a few dozen spread across his body. Stab scars, bullet scars, and cut scars. These will fade when his current incarnation dies. But there is one mark that will stay with his no matter what. -Link- This mark is what shows what he truly is, and the more Incarnations used, the longer the Feathers grow, and the darker the Shading becomes. This mark covers the entirety of his back, with the more Incarnations used up.

- Dominate: James is Dominate, he likes to be in control. Mostly in the bedroom, while outside he has been known to allow Diplomacy provail. Though, he will never give ground or relinquish control of a situation. He doesn’t back down, and if things get tense so be it. He is not an easy one to Intimidate, and if no one is willing to listen. He shows that he’s not afraid to walk away, and doesn’t look back. Deals are made by calling someone’s bluff, and if they do bluff. They better say something or else he won’t stop. It’s safe to say, that in his line of work. He isn't interested in getting screwed over, and not afraid to play hardball.
- Caring: As a Bodyguard to those willing to pay, or those that have managed to get past his hard ass exterior. He will put his own safety aside and protect those under contract or naturally under his protection. Even if it costs him his current Reincarnation. He chooses to let his actions show how much he cares, rather than words and it will take someone rather special to get him to admit it. Or how much he really cares. His kind are rare, so he’s made it his goal to preserve those he finds and make their kind last longer. Even if he dies in the process.
- Bad Temper: James has a bad temper, that’s rather straight forward. When he’s pushed, and pushed by someone he lives by one simple rule. “I’ll only warn you once, continue at your own risk.” So if you push him too far after that warning, you better be prepared to pay out the doctor bills. There have been times in a past life, that his temper had lead to him taking another life. Beating them to death, only to have been sentenced to death in the 1800’s in London. Since then he’s learned to restrain his temper. Now instead of killing them, he just beats them senseless and should he lost control again. He’ll need someone to make sure he doesn’t do something stupid.
WHAT ARE YOU?
Regenerations: 12 (Has 6 Left)
Title: Member of The Order
Power Level: Elder
Unspent BB: 20
Quick Movement- (Starter) Thunderbirds are swift creatures, they move faster than even most other supernatural creatures and expend less energy to do so, but this high speed cannot be maintained forever.
Distance Sight- (Starter) In the style of birds of prey, Thunderbirds can see extremely well at long distances. Their sight degrades as their reincarnation ages.
Light Weight- (Starter) Thunderbirds bodies may look humanoid, but they are in fact lighter, almost halfly so. This makes flying and floating easier, among other things.
Shapeshifting- (Starter) Thunderbirds can shape shift into their true form, revealing wings and various water-like or darkness-like colours, their size and vibrancy depending on age. Also, they have wings in human form, but these appear visible only to other Thunderbirds and do not allow flying, and when not in use, are stowed as "tattoos" on the skin.
Darkness- (10 Points) [+ 1 Power] Gives the Thunderbird the ability to see in the dark without the aid of light or magic. The better they’re trained, the longer and more useful the ability becomes.
Storm- (30 points) [+2 Power] The Thunderbird can use the energy from lightning and wind to temporarily shock and paralyze their target. This power is predominantly used to escape when the Thunderbird needs to heal from a bad injury.
Fiend of Night- (40 Points) [+2 Power] Gives the Thunderbird the ability to temporarily blanket an area with a diameter of 5 meters around them in darkness. (Only lasts for three of the Thunderbird’s posts).
Silence Death’s Call- (50 Points) [RARE] [+3 power] Thunderbirds cannot become a vampire’s animal servant. However, a Thunderbird’s beast may still be able to be called by an extremely powerful Master Vampire. This power allows the Thunderbird to block his call.
Shadow- (70 Points) [RARE] [+4 Power] This power allows the Thunderbird to pull on the energy of the moon and the night. The Thunderbird is surrounded in complete darkness for about ten seconds, before the energy explodes out with the force of a level 6 hurricane. The Thunderbird may be able to extend the storms radius up to five miles, but the larger the storm, the more likely the Thunderbird will be forced to reincarnate.
WHERE DO YOU COME FROM?
Family: James Family is long since dead, best not to revisit the past.
Other important people: Chandra Ambrosine: Den of the Order, Crush.
Jamie’s thunderbird was brought into existence during the spring of 939 Which was preceded by a large storm. To local Vikings took it as a sign, of Thor’s anger. It was because of this that he was given the name of Ásvaldr which meant Divine Ruler. His parents taught him what he’d need to know. While his father wanted to out them to the rest of the village, his father was power hungry. But his mother was there to teach him, and keep his father from doing something they were not supposed to do. She taught him how to harness his power, how to take on the form of his thunderbird and everything else he’d need to know to survive. Even the fact that if he died, his thunderbird would regenerate his body back to that of a young adult. And that he only had a curtain amount of times before he would die for good.
Sure, this worried Jamie at the time. Knowing that he would live 200 years before dying of old age. Or that if his life was cut short, that he would regenerate within a couple dozen of minutes. But as he grew, he to was able to help his mother keep his father from outing them. But he knew that the village and even the Jarl saw his father as a risk. So when they went raiding, his father was left behind to guard the village. While his son, went along. Jamie would continue this way for another 41 years. His family moved to another village and followed a different Jarl. To avoid questions, but in 980 Their armies came upon the shores of england. They took what they wanted as they moved from village to village. But he’d never taken part in the ‘extra’ spoils the others seemed to
In one village, he’d come upon the after affects of said Extra spoils to find a young woman, and her family bleeding out on the floor of their small hut. The woman was beautiful, it was a shame that he had to watch her die. But to his shock, she didn’t die. The wound across her throat started to heal, in shock he ran off yelling to get his father's attention. Telling him what he’d seen, but when they came back to the hut. The girl and her family were gone...all that was left was the blood that had come from their wounds. After that, his father shunned him. The prospect of more of their kind was too important to be joked with. So Jamie lived in shame, much like his father had under the last Jarl that they had served under.
Jamie would continue to raid, but slipped away one night under the cover of darkness. He would travel the rest of England, He changed his look and over the next twenty years learning the language and using his knowledge of the Vikings to stay out of their way. Finding himself in London he took odd jobs, teaching young lords to sword fight was by far the most profitable. While it would take him awhile to lose his Scandinavian accent, it was because of that, that Jamie suffered from Prejudice seeing as just 20 years earlier his people had terrorized their people. Though after another 40 years, he’d move on. Taking what he could save, and moved to a small village. Until one night a drunken brawl had found it’s way outside his hut.
When he came out to investigate one of the fighters was pushed into him. But just as Jamie pushed him to the side. To tell them to take it someplace else, Jamie felt a dagger slip between his ribs. This hadn’t been a drunken brawl, this had been a planned murder. Apparently they had thought something was up, or they had seen his Sword one night when they came in for drinks. But the Prejudice against his people had come back to bite him in the ass. So as he bleed out, he was dragged unceremoniously away from the village and dumped into a ditch. He felt his life slip from him, but just as he slipped through death's door. His wound healed, and when he came to he dragged himself from the ditch and took off. Last thing he needed was being called a Monster.
So he hit the road again, Spending the next 150 years of his second Reincarnation Traveling much of the known world. Though his age caught up to him in Rome, he had grown weary near the end of his second Reincarnation. So he settled down and lived the 50 years of his second Reincarnation in peace. Falling into a sleep one night in 1220, slipping into the darkness. When he woke at the start of this third Reincarnation, he hit the road once again. Traveling from rome to France, the journey took him several years in itself to make and when he did made it. He could feel something in the air, and it so happened that the night he arrived. A thunderstorm had rolled in, Paris the city of love as it would become known as (If not already by 1240) This was where he’d find his first Vampire, a beautiful Vampire. Everyone who knew about her, called her Scarlet. Because she wore nothing but red Dresses, Jamie had been drawn to her. The smell of death was one that he’d never been able to resist, and it didn’t help that she was Master Belle Morte. She seduced him, and fed from him over and over again over the following 8 months. All during sex, and he found that he liked being dominate in the bedroom. He threw her around, and had her each and every way he could 4 months later she vanished without a traced.
Jamie would stay in france for a number of years learning the Language, and 20 years later in 1260 he hit the road again. Traveling to Egypt, the middle east, India, and even China. Learning as he went spending all of this third and fourth reincarnation on this long stretch of Traveling and learning. He learned from monks, to control his temper. And to fight using his hands, and not a sword. 400 years, going from Monastery to monastery. He knew not to draw attention to what he was. Jamie had yet to meet another of his kind, that was until he traveled north into Russia 20 years later (1680). Though his reception by the only other Thunderbird was less than warm, though he stayed. Just for the company, and a chance to learn the language.
He spent the next 50 years with the russian Thunderbird and watched as she slipped from one Reincarnation to the other. Jamie too got a little too comfortable, with his new friend. She was warmed up to him and he spent the last 150 years imparting what he’d learned during his time. Slipping into his 5th Reincarnation before they parted ways and Jamie made his way to Japan after 10 years of Travel. He studied the culture and the way the world was building the structure for the modern age. 20 years was spent learning what he could about the culture and language, before jumping ship and going to the new world. A year was spent sailing and when he set foot in New York. He was already quite hardened, finding underground fight clubs, getting into bar fights and spending his fair share of time in lock up to sober up(1911).
He found a home in New York, getting a rep he had been given several jobs protecting the rich from gangs. He found that he was quite good at it, and he could make a decent living...at least until the great depression. But he survived, and joined the war effort when the US entered World war 2. That was when he fell on hard times, but he stayed in New York City until 2013. He felt like he needed a change, having run into some trouble with a local group of werelions. He packed up and moved to Boston, taking odd jobs as a Private security contractor. But a stray bullet caught him while on a job, and ended his 5th Reincarnation and now starting his 6th...he didn't know how many he had left. So he would start searching for clues that would lead him to more of his kind. He found the clues, and now he was starting his search for more Thunderbirds. While setting up fight clubs, he had to get his aggression out someway...What will happen now? Nobody knows, but he’s willing to find out.
To say that his arrival in Boston was warm, would be a drastic understatement. As it turns out, being nearly immortal leads to holding long outdated grudges. Anyways, after his arrival he met with the Den of the Order. One Chandra Ambrosine, as it turns out they had met once before in their past. Having been in one of the villages he and his Viking kin had raided, the very same woman he tried to save from a few of them. She was cold, strong and really hot, and a crush formed. But she was married, and hated him. Things were rocky and his lack of social graces didn't make things any better. Not to mention that the order was on the verge of crumbling. Thanks to a plot, that had yet to rear it's head. When it all came to a close, and the Order split. James didn't go far, he stayed in Boston but gave Chandra her space. Waiting for the time that the order would rise again, he went under ground. Living the last year and a half off the grid, making an old abandoned home his place of residence. He got the feeling that the Order was on the move, so he has come back to help bring the Order back to glory...and try to win the heart of the woman that hated him. Granted, he had worked on his social skills in this time.
