    II. Physical


    ● Appearance:
       - Height: Sylmaria stands 5 Feet 2 Inches tall.
       - Weight: Syl weighs approximately 118 pounds.

    LOOKS:
    ● Hair Color/Style: Originally Sylmaria has waist length silvery white-blond hair. Her hair is layered shorter in the front and longer in the back.  Syl tends to wear her hair in a variety of fashions and often has her hair dyed/colored as she sees fit. Her styles and colors often change depending upon her mood. Currently her hair is lavender tinted shoulder length hair in the front becoming longer in the back, with silver undertones that glisten in casual moonlight.

    ● Eye Colour: Being a vampire Syl’s eyes often glow red, when she is angry or hungry, however her natural eye color is Hazel. As her eyes are Hazel they often change colors from Blue, to Green and sometimes even a very dark brownish/red color.

    ● Skin Color: Sylmaria has creamy ivory snow-white skin that looks as if its been kissed by winters touch, a color that only seems to accentuate her lovely vampric features.

    ● Makeup (optional): Syl often wears eyeliner and other varieties of make-up as she sees fit. Sylmaria is more of the Tom-Boy type of girl at heart so she often wears no makeup at all, but that doesn’t mean she can't gussy up like the rest of the girls either.

    ● Body Type & Physical Condition: Slim, but moderately toned and sculpted body. Petite in build and appearance, but appearances can be deceiving. Although she is small, this little lady can really pack a punch when necessary, her vampiric strength is one of her greatest abilities.

    ● Physical Abilities & Limitations: Vampiric Strength, Speed, Heightened Senses ect.
    ● Physical Illnesses & Afflictions: No physical Illnesses other than intense cravings for blood or Afflictions, although she does smoke and drink.

    ● Physical Imperfections: Syl wishes her breasts were bigger, but other than that she loves her physical body very much. She sees herself as almost perfect and she likes that.

    ● Clothing style:  Syl has no particular clothing style, she wears what she likes.

    ● Distinguishing Features:  Syl is always wearing her spelled necklace, she is never without it. Is an ancient family heirloom held strong since the fall of the old world, a precious sapphire the size of a golf ball suspended from a thick rope of white gold.

    ● Voice: Soft and Sultry bell like voice.

    Transformation:
    Syl has a very unique transformation ability. When she chooses to transform, she has large black and red wings that span a good 20 feet. She also has razor sharp talon like claws that are about 4 inches long and as solid as steel. When she transforms her eyes are black as night with no whites or pupils to be seen, she also sprouts four inch long horns and tail, with a sing sharp barb like stinger on the end. Although she still keeps a human-like appearance in her transformed state her skin actually thickens during the transformation and her strength and speed doubles.
    However when she is in this form, she is consumed by rage, and pure raw vampiric instinct. Although she is deadly in this form the destruction that lays in her wake when she awakens, it may not always be as she wanted. Although her intelligence never wavers her judgment is clouded by her power and instinct to destroy everything in her path and drain the world dry and leave it painted in red. Even though her strength and speed double in this transformation, she can only stay in this state for a limited time before exhausting herself completely. Staying like this too long, could be life costly.

    III. Mental


    ● Alignment:  Netural. Sorta. For now. Syls alignment is to herself, her brother and her coven she will do anything to protect and ensure her covens safety. While she tends to stand on the side of good it doesn’t mean she won’t dirty her hands to take care of her own.

    ● Goals:
    Spoiler:


      - Outer Goals: Ruling her vampire kin in her city and keeping all well in Caelin.

      - Inner Goals: Sylmaria has numerous inner goals as her mind is always thinking and working. Some of her most inner goals are as follows: One of Syl’s main goals is to get all vampires legalized in all cities not just Howledon, as well as equal rights. Another is to end all the fighting between the feuding covens, as well as the various races and vampires, and to establish a peaceful place in which all races can live together in peace, prosperity and happiness.

      - Super Objective: The reason Sylmaria continues her undead existence is to usher vampire-kind into a new world free of darkness and tyranny under her rule. When she awoke from her long slumber she saw the old world in tattered ruins, as the new world began to flourish and grow she vowed she alone would make a place for herself as well as her vampire kin to live in peace with all other races, and to end the segregation, war and hate between the races.

    ● Defining Characteristic: Sylmaria is very strong willed, intelligent, confident and a bit conceited. She keeps her true self and true heart very guarded. Over the years this has paid off for Syl a time or two, she tends to be extremely suspicious of everyone, although if you do catch her interest and she becomes interested in you, things could be very disastrous as everything she touches seems to burn to ash before her eyes. Once she lets her guard down and you get to know her Syl is very kind and gentle hearted, but although she tries to be kind and good she stands on the borderline of good and evil struggling to contain and control the demon that is her insatiable thirst.

    ● Likes/Dislikes: Syl actually likes being a vampire as once she was turned she was set free from the shackles that held her down. She loves blood, reading, fighting, going to parties and having fun. She hates spiders, people who cause trouble in her city, and any creature who take unnecessary life for no reason.

    ● Hopes/Desires: Sylmaria hopes to one day find true love, peace and happiness. She desires to achieve all her goals, hopes and dreams not just for herself but for all vampire kind.

    ● Fears/Phobias:  Sylmaria is actually terrified of spiders.

    ● Sexual Orientation: Bisexual
    ● Dirty Secrets: Syl back in her early years, was once staked by a lover, and has the scar that never quite completely healed over her navel to prove it.

    ● Introvert or Extrovert: Introvert; while Syl enjoys a nice party she always needs some solace after to recharge and relax.

    - More Thinking or Feeling: Both. Syl often weighs her feelings and the rationality of a situation before making a decision. She finds when she makes rash decisions she often tends to regret them.

    - Selfish or Selfless: While Sylmaria can be quite selfish she can also be very selfless, especially when it comes to protecting her kindred from her coven or the inhabitants of the city she resides in from danger. As the Vampire Master of Caelin Sylmaria sees it as her personal duty to make sure the streets are safe to walk at night.

    ● Attitudes Toward:
    Spoiler:
    - Self: Sylmaria always protects herself, if she dies who will ensure the safety of her coven in Caelin? She sees herself as very important not only to her coven but to her city as well.

       - Others: Sylmaria tends to try not to take a personal interest in the life’s of those in her coven or her city unless she absolutely needs to, but that does not mean she does not know all there is to know in her coven or in her city. She likes her privacy and tries to respect others privacy to an extent, unless it threatens the safety of her city or coven in any way. She makes it her job to know what goes on in her city.

       - Friendship: Sylmaria is open to friendship, or so she tells herself but she tends to be a bit closed off, to make friends with this vampire you need to spark her interest as well as be persistent.

       - Love: Syls heart is about as cold as ice, when it comes to romance she was burned by love in the past and has literal scars to prove it. It will take a very courageous man to try and woo this vampire and melt her frozen heart.

       - Religion: Sylmaria is not so much religious as she is spiritual. She believes every creature has a spirit, and that each spirit deserves respect. She does not kill to survive although she has in the past. She makes it her job to set an example for vampire kind and live a peaceful existence as much as possible.

       - Country: Her loyalty is to her city Caelin and to the vampires in her coven; she does not focus on the country as a whole so much as she does her vampiric kin in the city.

       - The World: She plans on eventually trying to make the world a place she and her vampire kind can live in peace and prosperity under her ruling care.

    ● Superstitions: Syl is very superstitious as to what she believes are 'omens'.

    ● Method of Handling Anger: Syl is not one to piss off. As she has aged over the years she has learned how to control her anger, but not completely. When she does get angry, it’s best for all if they get out of her way. Now days it seems to take quite a lot to spark Syl's anger but beware.

    - Admirable Traits: Syl never gives up. No matter what she will never be helpless for her motto is if there is a Syl there is a way.

    - Negative Traits: Over confident at times.
    Prejudices: Syl tends to be a bit of a feminist, watch out men.

    - Most Painful Things in Their Life: The tragic events leading up to her turning, the staking betrayal of her love, her lonely existence since fourth.

    ● Mental Disturbances: Her constant urge to kill and maim the world and paint it in endless crimson. Although Syl fights the good fight and does the right thing it does not mean that it is always easy for her.

    ● Philosophy of Life: Syl lives her life struggling to stay what she perceives as good. She tries to live her life as best as she possibly can with as little regret as possible. Even though she has been dealt nothing but strife in her endless existence Syl will never give up hope and never stop fighting.


    IV. Skills & Talents


    ● Talents/Abilities:
    -Syl has talents alright, some she’s proud of and some she’s not. They are listed as follows: Syl is fast; really fast even when she was human she was always able to out run everyone in the village. Now that she’s a vampire she’s even faster.

    -Syl also has a knack for compulsion, even when she was human she always found she could easily sway others to her side, now that she’s a vampire she can will her way into anyone’s mind, implant suggestions and orders to suit her needs.

    -She also has an ability to control fire, she was born with it as a human although in her human incarnation the ability was dramatically weaker, and her ability to manifest, control and manipulate fire is extensively stronger in her vampire form.

    -Another talent or ability of Syl’s is that she has a photographic memory.

    ● Skills:
    - Magic: Ever since the end of the Old World, Syl has had to relearn to control and use the magic she once knew because the Dreaming replaced the Eight Elements and everything began to work in a different way. Although her knowledge is not vast, she still knows a few good tricks. She uses the magic she knows to control and manipulate fire, she can even produce it.

    -Another of Syl’s skills is that she is incredibly good at hand to hand combat when necessary.


    V. Social


    ● Political Alignment:  Neutral for now. Syl’s first loyalty is to herself and her coven, then to her city. She tries to be a good vampire and help her city flourish in peace and prosperity.

    ● Religion: Syl is more of a spiritualist, than religious. She believes the world is alive and everything has a spirit and it is all interconnected. She tries her best to respect live even when her instincts tell her to decimate it.

    ● Job/Class: Sylmaria is the Vampire Master of Caelin. She rules all vampires who reside or visit within the city of Caelin. She runs a casino/hotel and underground market illegally in the city, although she may operate and reside illegally in this town she hopes that with the vampire movement, in time Vampires will be legal in Caelin.

    ● Family: The only living member of Sylmaria’s family is her twin brother Adrias. Her history is long and complicated; she focuses on the present to keep from crumbling under the weight. The only thing that keeps her going is her brother at times, but she will never give up hope at least not completely so long as he is with her.

    - Relationships: Syl is in no relationship with any male other than her brother Adrias and their relationship is purely platonic. However she may take a consort here and there they mean little, if nothing to her romantically as her heart is guarded and as cold as ice.

    ● Noted accomplishments: Surviving the slaughter of her family and exacting revenge upon the ruffians who carved the first hole in her heart.
       
    - Famous/infamous: Bloody Syl, the infamous. Syl is not all that proud of her past, when she first became a vampire she carved a bloody name for herself over the first two hundred years.

    ● Hobbies: Making money and amassing a fortune.
    ● Pets: Syl has always loved animals, however she doesn’t have time for a pet right now but deep down she wants something that will love her and only her unconditionally. She’s thinking of acquiring a bat or wolf, something vicious that’s for sure.

    ● Weaponry, Armory, and Inventory:
    Spoiler:
    -A small Ruby & Sapphire jewel encrusted dagger is kept at her thigh.

    -A long Katana is strapped to her back most of the time.

    -Syl is never without her enchanted necklace, a sapphire the size of a golf ball suspended by a thick white gold rope, that allows her to walk in the daylight.

    -An Enchanted bag/purse that allows her to carry many things with her at all times.

    Stock & Holdings:
    - Wealth/Possessions: Sylmaria has collected mass amounts of money over the endless years of her existence. Her cash flow seems endless, far off somewhere in the billions. Sylmaria also owns her own resort & casino and runs an underground black market.

    - Land: The Proud owner of Syl’s Place. “The Caelin Coven, and so much more.” At Syl’s place there is a fabulous underground resort hotel and casino, fabulous dining options for every race around and so much more it’s absolutely to die for. The only problem is it’s a tight kept secret in the city of Caelin, only those whom are invited find their way to Syl’s place.
    ● Education: Sylmaria is highly educated and fluent in several languages. She’s always was a scholar at heart so she’s kept up her book smarts.
       
    - Languages Spoken: (Click here for precise information.)
    - Literacy: Even when Sylmaria was human her family was semi wealthy and able to send the children to school in the village, as well as pay for a private tutor. They prided their family that education was the way to survive in the world, so she studied history, science, literature, poetry, astronomy, languages and more. Syl makes it her duty to keep up on current events, as time does not pass the same for as it did when she was once human so long ago.


    VI. Background/ History:


    Spoiler:


    So you want to hear my story; Learn more about the mysterious female Vampire Master that sits before you now? I can recall it all like it was yesterday, for time passes differently for me now. It’s all so clear and pristine; I could never forget even the minutest detail, so I’ll make sure not to linger much and give you a quickly detailed summary of my incredibly long existence since you wish to inquire. I have survived the rise and fall of worlds and have seen much in my endless life. If you wish to know my tale then I shall indulge you in your request with a shortened version of the events that have made me the Vampire Master I am to this very day. Do read on if you dare enough to care.

    ~Syls Human History: The Beginning
    A very long time ago there was a human girl named Sylmaria. 2353 years ago to be exact. She was a beautiful sixteen year old girl. Happy with her simple yet lavish life. Sylmaria and her twin brother Adrias were the only children of their parents Erik and Emara Settsuki. They had lived simple lives, on their simple yet lavish farm raising livestock and crops to sell at the local villages, and for many years they prospered. While things prospered the children grew and there was many happy times shared.

    Their little family lived out quite far in the woods on a nice chunk of family descended land. For many years their family lived in peace with the surrounding villages until one autumn evening. Just before dark a stranger came passing through the village asking for shelter, and when everyone refused the stranger their family took him in and gave the man shelter for the night.

    That night the stranger stayed with them, the children were very curious about him, asked him many questions even at their parents bequests to leave the man be. The stranger who only regarded the children with kindness indulged their request for information, so he told them a story about a man who had traveled for a long time, and saw many things and who had many great adventures. It wasn't long before the children were fast asleep and eventually they all went to bed. But when the family awoke the next morning the stranger was gone only leaving behind a small satchel of gold with a note saying thank you. As mysteriously as he arrived in town he disappeared the same without so much as leaving his name.

    ~Her human death and Rebirth:
    It was a year later to the very night that they gave the mysterious man shelter, that everything changed forever. That nights memories are soaked in blood, leaving Sylmaria remembering herself bleeding and dying on the floor with her twin brother they're little hands reaching out and clinging to the other as they thought their lives were ending. The brutal things the children endured only strengthened their will to live, even as they lay helpless on the floor. But fate had other plans for them, their destiny had only just yet to begin. Little did they know that the same stranger would be the one to save them, another sign that destinys hand was in play.

    It was that very fateful night that they both were born to darkness, infected with the vampric virus that kept them tied to this world, not alive but undead. When they awoke from their rebirth, the stranger was there. He explained to the kids what had happened to them the previous night, and that in order to save them he had to make them like him.

    He did his best to educate them before he took his leave after only a short year and left the twins on their own, freeing them of their Maker/servant bond. He had not told them much about himself only his name and that he was very old when they pryed. When the kids asked why he saved them and not their parents to, Kaname was brutally harsh with his explanation, only blaming himself and saying he was too late, it was a fortnight after they had questioned them that he had abandoned them. Or so they had felt.

    ~Revenge & Separation
    With their destinies now intertwined even more then before the unlucky twins, stayed together for many years before separating ways for years to the point that they lost contact. However the siblings did not finally part ways until they avenged the tragedy that befell their family so long ago. The twins will never forget what those mongrels did to their family, its been forever burned into their memories and souls, somethings even time cannot heal. But they paid in blood for their crimes. Oh how they reveled in the blood. After being consumed by rage and revenge for so long the Syl lost herself to the blood lust and her own desires for many years, and Adrias just disappeared.


    ~Syl Wild and Alone
    Much bloodshed for many years as Syl wondered the world alone, enthralled with her bloodlust out only to sate her thirst and pain by painting the world in red. For a long time Syl was known for her ferociousness. She was feared among many and quickly grew a reputation for her ruthlessness, carving a bloody name in history for herself.

    ~Loneliness & Scars.
    After about a hundred years of killing who, what and when she felt like it, Syl began to notice that she had grown lonely. So she sought to make her first fledgling. Vowing never to abandon her own she sadly made a human girl into her own servant. She had not intended to turn the girl but she was ill, and so sweet to a strange woman she met crying in the woods, so unaware that her own little life was not far from ending, so Syl befriended the young girl. After spending so much time with her, Syl grew attached to her and eventually turned the girl when she grew quite ill.

    However Syls little knowledge of her own race would come back to bite her only a mere fifty years later. Things did not end well for Syl nor her once sweet friend, now turned slave. The girl she once was had changed entirely over time and became not only blood thirsty and savage, but spiteful and maniacal. It wasn't long before Syl had to put an end to her servant who had gone mad by the very virus Syl thought would save her, not all took to it well but that was a lesson she had to learn the hard way. If it was not hard enough Syl was forced to take her young friends life literally with her own hands, ripping out her heart. It was then that Syls own heart began to turn to ice, and so again she wondered the world alone.

    ~Love & Betrayal
    Another slow hundred years passed and Syl met a mortal and fell for him, quite hard. However their love was to be brief however passionate it was, the flames of love turned to ice once she revealed her true nature to her love. His family like hers had been murdered by vampires and he despised all vampires. After several months had passed Syl finally thought he would accept her nature, as he had proposed to her and they were set to be wed she knew she must tell him the truth. Yet when she told him, he was repulsed by her. In a rage that she cares not to remember he drove a stake through her chest missing her heart by a mere inch. So shocked by this betrayal she did not even defend herself, unable to speak a word as he staked her, he said sparing her life is all she would ever get of him, as he walked out of her life forever. Broken hearted and wounded badly Syl disappeared yet again to wonder alone, her heart slowly becoming more numb and icy.

    ~After a thousand years of wondering Syl began to grow weary of this world and its worry-some ways. She had been burned by herself, and by one she thought had loved her, and bears the literal scars to prove it. So she sought to find her brother once more.

    For many, many years Syl searched for Adrias chasing one rumor after another, until they both met again by chance. It was only when the world they new began to fall to war again, and at their age they were not interested in world events. They both were tired for so many reasons, and so they sought and found a powerful witch from the old world who spelled them to sleep in coffins inside an enchanted cave, deep inside the now long forgotten forest of Amar.

    ~And so they slept for many many years, hoping to never wake.

    ~While they slept the old world fell and the new world was born, and with the death of the old magics the spell that kept Syl and Adrias at rest broke. From the death of the old, the new shall rise, and so the Siblings awoke from their 500 year long sleep.

    ~Rise & Shine welcome to the new world
    Waking up to a new world, was scary enough, much less having yourself and all that you know changed. When my brother and I awoke, we found not only had the world changed but so had we, and so much more. Ever since the end of the Old World and the birth of the new world, Syl has had to relearn to control and use the magic she once knew because the Dreaming replaced the Eight Elements and everything began to work in a different way. Although her knowledge is not vast, she still knows more then a few good spells and tricks.

    ~Syl spent the next 200 years living in the shadows with her brother, accumulating as much knowledge about the new world as they could. Over that time they watched and learned much about the world and how it changed, and the many events that had occurred. It was not easy for this High Ancient set of twins to adapt to the changes, neither of them really cared for change.

    ~With knowledge in hand Syl and Adrias join the Caelin Coven.

    ~Syl rises through the ranks and becomes a second in command in the Caelin coven. Where she resides for the next 300 years with her brother at her side until she has every piece on the board where she needs it to be.

    ~For Syl & Adrias’s 2000 year, birthday they celebrate by Syl murdering the Master of their coven and asserting herself as the new Vampire Master of Caelin.

    Present Day:

    ~Syl rules the vampires of Caelin, as Master for the next 352 years, which brings us up to present time.
