[CLOSED] Monsters Masked with a Smile

Monster masked with a smile

"The monsters walk among us, wearing our skin and
speaking with our voices. Can one pretend
to understand who is carved from hellstone?"


Its late August of 1888 in London and the country is raving about Jack The Ripper, the serial killer that stalked the streets at night like a rabid dog, ready to pounce on any young woman that walked alone. Other than the notorious killer, London had an infestation that thrived from the terror that stirred in The Ripper's wake; vampires, barely the vicious creatures of legend any more, tamed by society until they looked no different from the nobles that graced the floor of balls or the boxes of opera's.

With the horror of Jack, the disappearances of the few were overlooked by police, already stretched to their limits trying to catch the knife wielding demon. The vampiric population of London drank to their heart content, some of the more flamboyant throwing "Feeding Parties", the most lavish events among the vampire nobility; warm blood from hosts of every different blood types gushing into crystal glasses. No two nobles would hold the exact same party, all attempting to out-do the other in who could throw the best or most extravagant parties.

Among these nobles, were the few with their own, personal donors, humans that willingly give themselves to their vampire masters, getting hooked on their venom like a drug, slowly forming the illusion of love. Most of the time these donors lose their mind as they become consumed, shattering like a cracking glass. Other nobles simply snatch the closest man, woman or child when they got hungry and drained them dry. The debate on which of these methods are is more humane is still on-going.

Not all vampires have the fortune of living the expensive life. Many live in the slums, biting into their own flesh or others of their kind when they are too weak to hunt. The hierarchy that dictated human life barely differed from those that pray at night, hiding their sensitive skin and eyes from the light of day with parasols and heavy curtains. So much so, the vampires mingled with humans, dancing, eating, conversing and drinking with them like they had grown together.

The few rules among vampires: Do not expose the vampire kind, do not kill another vampire except for good reason and the creation of new vampires must be justified or the creator and the youngling would both be punished. This usually ended in the killing of the creation and starvation of the creator, fifty years in a chained coffin in the ocean. This hasnt stopped some from hiding their projects... Whether it was reason enough is judged by a panel of the oldest vampires of the area; the counsel, branded with a mark to show their position.

"In a world of killers, it's hard to trust. The weak
fall and the strong survive to watch the world
burn."



Vampire:
•The vampiric population can have jobs or an accumulated fortune from over years.
°They can walk in the sun but have sensitive eyes and skin that burn easily.
•Mirrors of the time had a layer of silver in them. Since with is considered a holy metal, vampires reflections can not be seen in them. They can, however, see their reflection in glass, other metals or reflective surfaces that don't contain silver.
°Silver can also hurt a vampire. Silver jewellery, the silver tips of hunters weapons or even silver cutlery can burn the flesh if touched with an ungloved hand.
•To turn a human into a vampire, the process is longer than just biting them. The transfer of blood then the rebirth must take place. The human must drink the blood of a vampire, killed then buried in the ground for a few hours until they claw their way back out.
°The venom of vampires is intoxicating to humans, making the weaker-willed addicted to it. To avoid this, blood letting can be done (Slicing the skin to drain them that way rather than biting them with your fangs)
•Vampires are not born in conventional terms. The only pure blood vampires are the ones that have survived from the dawn of time (very few of them survive still)
°Vampires stay the ages when they were at peak health. For most, this is 18 to 20 years old.

Humans:
•Humans can also have jobs or accumulate a fortune through their families.
°Humans aren't as strong as most vampires when they are well fed but can fend off the ones from the slums that haven't drank from a human in a while.
•Humans can become nearly slaves to vampires if they become addicted to their blood.

The council:
The council is a group of four or five vampires that have lived longer than the rest in the area and are said to be a few of the founders of London. They deal with matters such as vampire on vampire killings, the creation of new vampires and vampires who risk exposing the species to humans. They have informants all around London so it is hard to keep information from them but that's not to say some haven't been able to. There are some illegal vampires in London that are hidden by their creators.

The hunters:
There are a few human hunters in the world. They carry weapons lined with silver and wood from a Judas tree (Judas traded Jesus for 30 pieces of silver and hung himself from the Judas tree. He is believed to be one if the first vampires). There are only a few in one area, most descendants of hunters through generations. They are not faster or stronger than most vampires but they seem to have nearly a sixth sense for them, as do vampires for them. They must not expose humans to the idea that vampires exist.

"Demons hide in the dark; lingering on the edge
of your vision like a trick of the eye"

Appearance: A small round face that is usually frames by her long blonde hair on either side. Large Cobalt eyes with thick black lashes and naturally straight teeth hidden behind her pale lips. Her large doe like eyes have a violet tint around the iris, making her dark blue eyes appear purple in the light. She has a small, petite build from years of horse riding, with a narrow waist and long legs. She's curvy, making her look well in most dresses. Due to more pressing matters, Lilith had cuts, scars and bruises over her back, because of the causes of those marks, she had grown quite cold towards humans.

Background:
God created both Adam and Lilith from the Earth, but there was soon trouble between them. Lilith refused to take a subservient position to Adam, since she came from the same place he did. Lilith left Eden and began birthing her own children. Lilith roamed until she settled Babylon, Iraq until she was chased out by those around her. Once they found that she drank blood to survive, those who had known her their whole life turned on her. She spent a while traveling, gathering money as she moved around until she found somewhere, she could settle down for a longer stay in London.
Although she did not start out as a true vampire, she was cursed to never get joy from food nor wine, the taste souring in her mouth and turning to dust in her stomach. Unable to eat the food she used to, she wondered around weak and weary until the scent of blood from a mauled animal smelt like the sweetest of honey to her. Starting on animals to quench her thirst, she was never strong enough to fight those around her and when they came to run her out of her house, she had to flee before she became nothing but a pile of ash. Before she was driven from her home, Lilith was always one to help as much as she can even though it can sometimes put herself at a disadvantage. After the whole affair in Babylon, she had turned bitter towards everyone around, preferring to surround herself in lavish items and vampires who can distract her from the dull pain she constantly feels. To further separate herself from the pain of Iraq, she changed her name to Artimas and hid herself away. Parties and paying for humans to drain kept her numb and with the arise of Jack the Ripper roaming around, there has never been a better time to indulge in all the pleasures of the vampire life style and she wasn’t exempt from this. Although she was by far the oldest vampire, she kept away from the counsel, not wanting to be apart of the noise and annoyance of the job.

Name: Garret Fitzwilliam

Species: Human

Age: 28

Height: 6'1

Appearance: A manly face with a strong jaw framed by an unkept beart, with kind hazel eyes. He's in shape, but it's not too skinny or too muscular. His skin is light due to the avoidance of sun exposure, and there are constant dark circles under his eyes for lack of sleep.

Background: Garret grew up as an orphan in London, and after his emancipation he joined the police force. He was always an avid reader, and through efford and hard work he was able to, at a very young age, become one of the most reliable detectives in Scotland Yard. He always puts his job first, and that prevented him from finding a spouse and creating a family for himself. He doesn't have many friends either, and is always mocked on his work space for being an introvert.

He took the Jack the ripper case under his belt and created a strong emotional bond with it. He knew something wasn't right; some of the killings were too bloody and didn't fit the serial killer's profile. He's been digging deeper and began working on a theory that perhaps he'd have a copycat - or multiple. Garret is unaware of the existance of anything supernatural (for now).

Oh and he likes to draw as a hobby.
