Gabe (by Serena)
Human // Tenebras Vampire
75, looks 26
He has the deathly pale skin and red eyes typical of vampires. His fangs are of an average length, usually barely noticeable. His long, dark hair is pulled back in a tight braid. He can usually be found to be wearing a black suit and tie, and he pulls it off perfectly. He stands about six feet tall. He has an incredible smile, which he shows off often.
Gabriel is always sure of himself and confident that everything will go his way. The best word to describe him is charming. He is always making friends and allies, or at least enamoring his enemies to him. He is always well spoken.
- Glasses with red lenses and silver frames. (Hardly ever wears)
- One of those pretentious bluetooth ear phones.
- A set of bat shaped platinum cufflinks.
He is an accomplished mind mage. His greatest talent is in enamoring people to him, either by making them more comfortable in his presence or manipulating their opinions subtly.
His powers can be more combat oriented as well. He can directly attack others' minds and sometimes controlling them. He is also capable of destroying a weak willed person's mind completely, but he will almost never attempt this, as the consequences tend to be grave if he fails.
He's also an excellent dancer
. Is so an ability.
~Can turn into a bat, a wolf, or a cloud of smoke at will.
~Has unnatural strength that exceeds that of a normal man.
~Can regenerate, but at a slow pace.
~Can suck the blood of the living by biting them, and if he drains most of their blood they will be turned into a vampire.
~Can hypnotize someone if that person is weak minded enough, but only if he is able to stare them directly in the eye for about 3 seconds.
~Is allergic to garlic. It weakens him and makes him vomit. It won't kill him.
~When exposed to the sun, she is weakened to a less than human level.
~Burns when in contact with anything
holy. Only if there is a particularly strong belief in it that is close-by, so he's not going to be harmed by the "holy vampire cloak" of "hocus pocus religion on the other side of the world".
~Is paralyzed if a piece of wood (stake or not) goes through his heart. It won't kill him, but he won't be able to move, think, or do anything at all until some nice (re; stupid) passerby removes it.
~Can't cross running water.
~Can't enter a home uninvited.
Ghar took Gabriel from his father at a young age. He did so to protect Gabriel, who's father was bloodthirsty. He grew up with Ghar's other adopted child, Serena, and she is like a sister to him in everything but blood.
When he was still a young man and before he was turned, Gabriel fell in love with a woman. They were together for months before they arranged to get married. The night before their wedding she stuck a knife in his back, right through his heart. He fled the room, his life fading quickly. A friend of his, a vampire, came across him and saved his life, by turning him. He immediately went back to his so called love and crushed her mind. Before she died however he saw that someone had corrupted her mind, had compelled her to try and kill him. In a rage he confronted his would be killer and slowly picked apart his mind. Since then he hasn't been able to get truly emotionally attached to any woman. Only Ghar, Serena, and Gabriel's biological father know the specific of the incident.
Gabriel was considered a rebel in his old home of Gul-Thadar, a vampire city-state. He vehemently opposed the high counselís old fashion style of leadership. He leaped at the opportunity to leave his home and accompany Serena to the Nexus when Nite called her there. His goal is to establish a 'utopia' in the Nexus, but no one is sure what that entails.
