Lenali Shepard. That's the name she gave herself. In her human life, the plantation owners named her Eden, for she was born a mutt of her people, and was born beautiful. She was a house trophy, often dressed up like a doll and taught to obey every and any command, as well as learn different languages. At 21,she fell in love with a field slave name Giever. He was favored by the master, often a buck that kept everyone in order. Her master had sold her, and she was to marry a neighbor's son... They caught her in bed with Giever, in a gown that was White. She secretly married Giever.
Outraged, Giever was taken and lynched, and she was to be raped and killed.
An image had appeared after the horde disapeared. He asked her name and if she was ready to die. She shook her head slowly. He bowed to her and told him who he was: Dracula, the immortal impaler. He saved her life, and let her exact her revenge on the plantation.
After which, she was taken in by the King of darkness, to meet Judas Iscariot, Nosferatu, and other Immortals that called themselves [b "The Vampire Council"]
There, she was taken under Dracula's wing, fed, trained and adorned with what could be called love. Being that she was his fledgling, he made sure to train her well, with knowledge, resourcefulness, and combat, and for the next half a century, she trained, restlessly, without regret. She became first guard and quickly became established upon the immortal crowd. Dracula's only fledgling had became general of all other fledglings and her greated honor after three hundred years, was that she will become a noble, claim a seat in the hall of Councils... But, it didn't happen.
Humans had come and tried to find and kill Judas Iscariot, and when Dracula heard word of it, he had to get him and himself out of harm's way, and were taken away, to hibernate. Upon that, the Vampire Council was left to care for the fledglings... And they started with poor Eden.
She was beaten... She was burned... She was experimented on... And down to the war to keep the castle, she was put front and center, guiding other fledglings and Memphas [I ] to a victory... But, it didn't end there.
She watched as they tortured and harmed fledgling hordes by the dozen, and she had enough... She rebelled, leading the hordes to their freedom.
Some say they saw her turn to the castle engulfed in flames, and ran in, and never came out.
Years had passed... Not a sound or a trail from Our heroin. A Mempha travels to a city, where he catches a familiar scent... What it'll lead to is the past, past love, past fear, past revenge. Will she be able to keep herself out of radar for long?

As soon as he rose in rage, Eden backed up. He bulked at her, yelling at her about his name... But, what made him more upset was that she was smiling... And not in a nice way. Before his eyes, Eden's eyes flashed crimson, her canines stretched to battle length, and she willed her sword into her hands.
She let out a hiss, Matheus, Asmodian and Eutharian backing up. Eden's aura strengthened, her stare, venomous. [I "Make me, fledgling"] she taunted
"DON'T YOU EVER CALL ME THAT NAME!" Zeke snapped. Zekeriah, that name alone forced him to lash out at Eden. He didn't know why but even that had caused his blood to boil ready to burst into fight or flight mode as he stood staring defiantly at her, "That name belongs to a weakling who is dead! I only made it this long by surviving on my own and that name brought me nothing but nightmares!"
"You will find out." She sddenly felt bored. She looked at him before chuckling. " Whatever he did to you effected you , Zekeriah. Its up to you to remember. But, the day you attack me will be th day you see why Herod desres me so much"
She smirked as she gave him another glass. "Don't worry. It is simpler to listen. I wont harm you so long as you dont try anything funny"
"Honor?" Zeke muttered in confusion before smirking to himself. A brief image of him smiling at someone for a challenge to unbeatable odds caused him to go distant for a few minutes.
'They outnumber us what? Ten to one? Maybe more? So what that means we each take down twenty at a minimum each? Low ammo and shitty rusty weapons man could the odds be any more in their favor?'
"Could...the odds be any more in your favor?" He asked: his memories now speaking for him, "Currently outnumbered with hidden potential within the three elites? On top of that you're just on a bad day?" Zeke spoke with an attitude of an overconfident man as he began to chuckle before outright laughing, "Don't tempt me with a good time. I might just have to take you up on that offer. What better way to die than against seemingly impossible odds." Eden's words triggered a piece of Zeke's old self before he returned to his original somewhat drunk self forgetting what he had just said yet kept his smile.
"Herod. You say that name like I should know it," Eden's words had begun to mid Zeke's personas together as they intertwined making him sound arrogant, " if I'm to die then I'd at least like to have one last meal of sorts and if could I'd want to have the battle go down at my house. If I'm gonna die I'd like to at least sleep in my hammock before facing judgment."
Matheus growled before cocking his gun. "Oh, don't worry..." He grinned Eutharian and Asmodian stood taller, but Eden huffed once, calming them now. [I "Zeke, you are Mempha who not only developed his insatiable appitite for liquor, but your injury you sustained then effected your memories. What Herod done to you is warranted for him to be put back in hell for. Vlad, Judas, even Cain finds solace in their chance of redemption by living under God's eye, but governed by Hell's rules."] Eden sighed as she felt she needed to explain. [I " i am that vampire that saved Memphas. And if you find a reason to try and kill me because of what's in your head telling you to, then you can try... Like i said before... I saved Memphas and fought against the strongest of the Aerie. You may not want to try it when I'm at full strength"]
Matheus, Eutharian and Asmodian backed away, feeling her aura getting stronger and surrounding around Zeke and her. She propped her elbow onto the table and rested her chin in her hand. [I "So... Will you fight and lose ? Or, will you take the chance to do something worthy of honour?"]
'Extract any and all information! When you have what I need KILL' The voice shouted in Zeke's head. It broke through as a whisper through the alcohol kept him from wanting to scream, "Styx....Aerie," he echoed. Again he looked to Lenali's 'chiodren' as if expecting an answer to a riddle to jump from their mouths before staring back at Lenail. "That one survivor could've been anyone if that's the case. As someone once told me 'Only the victors can write in the books of history ' At least that's how I remember it."
'LET ME OUT OF HERE!!! I CAN'T GET OUT!!' The image of being trapped in a room starting to fill with smoke haunted him before he felt a chill run down his spine forcing him to speak again.
"Whichever one of your boyfriends is trigger happy should have their hand on the trigger a blade at the ready ....if I had shown up at anyone elses I would've been killed on the spot. And who knows," he looked as if he was begging for it to happen, "it may help the dreams stop "
Lenali stared at him as he spoke. She nodded as she recollected the memories he possessed, and sighed. [I "The Rebellion of 1815... The Styx Aerie"] she said as she looked ahead. [I "There was a rebellion there... It was significant because the Aerie was set ablaze... Turned night into day as Memphas escaped to their freedom... All but one... They say"]
Unsure of how much to answer Zeke stared at his hands, looking from them to the boys beside the woman who he chased after, "I ..I've lived in that forest for as long as I can remember...but there are times where it feels like I just went there on my own accord. As for what I was doing it was simply looking for ores...you saw the weapons laying around the my home. I don't really have any other reason to go to the city...if anything I'm probably one of the mysteries of some stupid stories as to people being chased out or injured by some beast." Taking a breath he reached for his bottle and started to down it like water just to start a buzz, "For your other question ..for being here as in at your house...a few days...after seeing you I've had nightmares. Fire...screams....people running in fear...rage...and a shadow of a woman leading the charge. They all end the same with fire just being too much," taking another big swig finishing the bottle his eyes became distant, "On rare occasions I see something staring back at me...saying 'hunt, disguise, hunt.' The words only getting swallowed by the fire only to become a whisper I can barely drown....." In truth Zeke talked too much, spilling his guts to these people he knew nothing of. All he knew was that she was the start of his nightmares.
Lenali looked at him. "Eutharian, Asmodian and Matthew. They are good boys... " she said as they took a seat.
Eden had sighed a minute. "So, what were doing at the forest? How long were you here?" she asked, truly curious. In order to help him, she had to know some things.
Seeing as all was calm for the moment Zeke followed a safe distance from Lemali. As he did so he could feel the intensity from her son's wanting him to leave or even verify if he himself was a threat. "I guess ... introductions are in order? I'm Zeke...I guess if me a hermit compared to you and your guards. I guess I came originally to get answers but for what I don't even know."
Listening to him, she knew that he was trying to remember. But, she wouldn't push it. She nodded. [I "Yes? I was there. "] The boys had piled back in the house as she walked to the door. [I "Coming in?"]
She sighed as she went into the kitchen, grabbing a mug, filled it with blood, and sat at her dining room table
Staring up at the roof then at the three who tripped over him Zeke couldn't help but just wonder if this happened before, "I've never even met them but this for some reason feels familiar..."
Hearing Lenali's chuckle he looked to her and for a brief moment saw a shadow from a forgotten memory fill, if only for a second, "You were there ....but I can only remember your chuckle. This is our second encounter and yet I still feel like a big part of myself is missing...who are all of you?" Asking the question Zeke stood carefully his hands outstretched as if ready to pounce. He may have a knife on him but going for it would take too much time and being sober for now at least allowed him to think clearly and not with rage.
After a few hours, Lenali had returned. And her boys were waiting.
They were going to run to her in a welcome... But, they seemed to meeting the ground instead. Adjacent to them was the awakened Zeke, sort of shocked. They scrambled to their feet to arm themselves, but Lenali's chuckled kept them still. [i "I see you met my boys"] she said with a softened smile
"Altered...? But I'm...still me right?" Not sure of what else to do Zeke quietly released the door and took a few steps back from her vehical. 'How...I don't even know your name.' Sure he wanted to say that to her but he didn't even ask her name, and because of that he only sat down by the door of her house as if he was a sleeping guard to her house.
During that the man dreamt again of memories of another life. It was like the night he rescued her and saw the flames separating them as he smiled after her. As they parted ways to finish their jobs Zeke saw a new part and felt himself start to be cornered as if someone was leading him away by using the fire up til he was in a room with one light. 'Welcome....Zeke...let's have a little chat.'
During his slumber Zeke's body rested against the wall keeping the image of a broken man waiting to be let in, waiting for redemption.
Lenali looked to him a moment before stwppi g out of her car. [i "Its your instinct. Youve been searching for me since i rescued all the Memphas from the Styx coven, and now that youve found me, your figuring out why because your memories are altered. I wont say anything about what you should remember... It will come the more you search"]
She stared at him before sighing. [i "If you want answers, i suggest staying here until i get back. I jave business to tend to, but ill be back soon "]
