    Olivia


    Alias:
    Gender:
    Female
    Race/Species: Human vampire
    Age: 19
    Alignment: Good, but with evil tendencies
    Class/Profession: Undead monstrosity, housewife-in-training
    Power Rating: C-
    Description: A short and pretty young brunette girl. Her flawless skin is very pale and her blue eyes are tinged with red; and she has rather large and pointy canine teeth. She usually looks quite average, but can also either look like a dazzling and voluptuous beauty or a rage-filled bloody monster.
    Equipment: Her wardrobe consists of modest and secondhand dresses, and she also carries around a large and cream-colored parasol. She also has a fine spider-silk midnight blue dress.
    Abilities: She can clean stuff and cook things if needed, though she is not a master at either thing. Apart from that, she barely has any education besides knowing how to read and write.

    Her vampire abilities and weaknesses can best be explained with a lengthy quote from Dracula, though there are a good deal of differences. She does not have a coffin yet, for one, her powers are definitely not as well developed or entirely under her control, and she is, like her sire, rather... flammable in the sun.

    The vampire live on, and cannot die by mere passing of the time, he can flourish when that he can fatten on the blood of the living. Even more, we have seen amongst us that he can even grow younger, that his vital faculties grow strenuous, and seem as though they refresh themselves when his special pabulum is plenty.
    But he cannot flourish without this diet, he eat not as others… He throws no shadow, he make in the mirror no reflect… He has the strength of many of his hand… He can transform himself to wolf… he can be as bat…He can come in mist which he create… but, from what we know, the distance he can make this mist is limited, and it can only be round himself. He can come on moonlight rays as elemental dust… He can become so small… he can slip through a hairbreadth space… He can, when once he find his way, come out from anything or into anything, no matter how close it be bound or even fused up with fire, solder you call it. He can see in the dark, no small power this, in a world which one half shut from the light…
    He can do all these things, yet he is not free. Nay, he is even more prisoner than the slave of the galley, the madman in his cell. He cannot go where he lists, he who is not of nature has yet to obey some of nature’s law, why we know not. He may not enter anywhere at the first, unless there be some one of the household who bid him to come, though afterwards he can come as he please… Thus, whereas he can do as he will within his limit, when he have his earth-home, his coffin-home, his hell-home, the place unhallowed… It is said, too, that he can only pass running water at the slack or the flood of the tide. Then there are things which so afflict him that he has no power, as the garlic that we know of, and as for things sacred, as this symbol, this crucifix… to them he is nothing, but in their presence he take his place far off and silent with respect. There are others, too... The branch of wild rose on his coffin keep him that he move not from it, a sacred bullet fired into the coffin kill him so that he be true dead, and as for the stake through him, we know already of its peace, or the cut off head that giveth rest.
    Thus when we find the habitation of this man-that-was, we can confine him to his coffin and destroy him, if we obey what we know.

    Backstory: Olivia was born as a human in the Nexus and grew up in a poor family in the Red Zone. She didn't go to school, but learned to help out around the house and was at least taught to read and write along with basic arithmetic. She survived many of the calamities that have plagued Inside periodically, except for the vampire attacks. Well, she actually survived most of it, and was only turned after the majority of the threat was long gone. A mistake on her part, thinking the danger was gone, that it was safe to investigate a flapping noise outside her window...
    Once awaking as a vampire, she went on a biting spree, though used what little leverage her mind had behind the bloodlust to not actually kill or turn anyone. She was a danger, though, and quickly subdued and sent off to GLoG for 'redemption'. We'll see how that goes...
