And then there's me. I always end up making characters with dark backstories and some level of suffering. Be it due to a morbid curiosity with such things, or perhaps my masochistic tendencies.

On a relevant note, the trap character I'm making is using the appearance of a character from a game, who according to what I've read, has some severe psychological problems and ends up hanging himself.
I really should feel sorry for my characters, 'cause some of them... oh boy have I screwed them over. And sometimes I do. But most of the time, I don't.

Consider yerself lucky. I can't count the amount of times that I've lost entire apps.


By a load of it, I mean pretty much everything since around 1PM this morning (though I've been working on the app over the past few days, so there are various earlier versions of it from before, too), and I spent most of the day adding bits to the app and looking up/researching stuff. I wander off for one minute and it crashes.

But yeah, that's happened to me in the past, too. Sometimes I get a bit forgetful and end up not saving copies of it elsewhere or saving the draft regularly.

I am exclusively in Anselm...currently...mainly because no one needs me antagonistic services anywhere else right now.

Better.
Working for a week on an app saved as word document.
Then decide to post it.
But delete the word document after you've copied its contents.
Click Submit.
...
You can guess what happened.

Granted 'twas long ago.

Okay so Tracian, I thought of and changed the name of the spell group, Entrancement. I carries the same meaning around, doesn't get too confusing with Enchantment, and is still elegant enough to not be dull.

Is this forum just a secret hub for monarchists? We got a Romanian monarchist, a British Monarchist, two American monarchists, and who knows what else.

Send the idea to Charlia, she's a factory of suffering characters by this point.

He did. And I've been thinking about it for a while, and I'm coming up with ideas and stuff, and if he doesn't end up doing the character, I'm going to see if he minds me doing it. XD

Alright, I think I got it this time.

Character Application

Name: Mélanie "Mellie" Trebond
Age: 210
Gender: Female
Sexual Orientation: Pan
Race: Vampire (Upyr)
Appearance: https://www.howardlyon.com/illustration ... /new-blood


Position/Status/Affiliation: Her family's rich so she's a lady of leisure, although she is very active in the vampire political circles. She's also the current head of the Trebond clan, one of the more prominent vampire clans among the world of the undead and the family was known for their magical abilities. One of the Vampire Lords of the Umbra Court of Arghyo.

Skills/Powers//Magic: Vampire magic
Equipment: A parasol and a hooded cloak to keep her protected from the sun when she goes out, emergency blood packs, a world encyclopedia and map. Crystal ball.


Personality: Mellie is somewhat reclusive and paranoid after what befell her parents, but always tries to maintain an air of politeness and elegance wherever she goes especially when dealing with business associates. She takes her position as family head and Vampire Lord very seriously, and has a great pride in her family name. As such, she doesn't take insults to her family well and is highly protective over her sisters, not wanting anything to happen to them. She has a cool and distant demeanor that hides a simmering anger, she's almost obsessed with tracking down those who killed her parents and woe unto anybody who gets in her way. She seems like she doesn't care for much but her clan and money, but she has a deep love for her sisters although she may not be the most affectionate in public, she'd go to any lengths to protect them and the rest of her clan. She doesn't tolerate betrayal well nor does she hate other species, but is distrustful of most other living beings until she gets to know them. Can be pretty vain as she knows she's attractive, and she plans to marry one day but due to this shadow hanging over her she hasn't gotten many suitors nor does she really want one at the current moment.
Moral Alignment: True Neutral
Biography: Mélanie is the eldest of four sisters born to Elissa and Hector Trebond, Lord and Lady of Clan Trebond. However, she wasn't born in Velikiya like many vampires that she knew (even her own parents) but instead she was born and raised in Arghyo. Her father was a politician of the vampiric government there called the Umbra Court, which was ruled by seven Vampire Lords, one from each of the seven most powerful clans in Arghyo with Hector being one of them after they had overthrown their king. He had reigned as a tyrant for many centuries, until the first Lords established a coup and managed to overthrow him. From then on, the Umbra Court operated democratically with the Grand Master at its head. And not only Strigoi would reign, but those who clans showed strength and fairness regardless of rank, so it's unusual in being a mixed court. As such, Mellie was raised to follow in her father's footsteps and she took to her lessons well, almost better than well. Her sister Marçela worked on cultivating her beauty, wit and magic and that made her a deadly spy. Mona and Mary, the two youngest took to becoming assassins and are sought out by many prominent vampire families to take care of "unwanted problems."

However, living so long sometimes inevitably comes with the cares of immortality and as such the weariness of it. Her father and mother planned to stepdown as clan leaders, opting instead to join the other Strigoi underground after asking and making sure that Mellie was ready to handle such responsibility. But they were sent on one last mission before that, called before the Council of Progenitors for some unknown business. They never returned, and what happened to them still remains a mystery. That made Mellie the head of the Trebond clan at a young age, and she was elected Vampire Lord some years later once she had proved herself. To generate more income and connect themselves to other vampires, she and her sisters operate quite a few seedy businesses like brothels and gambling houses in addition to their spy and assassination services.
Goals: To accumulate as much wealth and power as possible, keep her family together, maybe even build a vampire coven. To extend her clan’s power by marrying...eventually.
