Lenali Shepärd is an unusual woman... This slave- turned- Immortal had the power to take down an entire coven and free all of their experiments (Memphas) before disappearing. It's knocking on a century, and the Styx coven had came up empty- handed since her rebellion..
Their last resort, was to go to their creator, their desperate attempt to bring her out of hiding.
Meanwhile, on the run with her three boys, Lenali has one option that could prove useful in her efforts.. Get to her stronghold in Georgia... Search for Memphas, make her own coven, train and defeat The Styx Coven. Just, that particular plan did include humans, and not only that, she'd have to create allies with alert underground humans. Mafias. Gangs. So to be able to give protection to their own species. But, this one in particular is about to step into an adventure of his own... And it involves Lenali

You don't have permission to post in this thread.
Eden turned over to Caveziel as he spoke... Wait... A Van Helsing? She could've hissed if it weren't for the fact that Memphas were a new specie of Vampires that couldn't be detected easily.
She looked to Phanuel, who stared at him intently. "Is this...?" she asked. Eden nodded to her before Phanuel had walked around and stared at him. "Eden, a Van Helsing..." she chuckled and looked at her. "He will be a perfect mate, i can tell. This is probably what Uriel wouldn't tell me"
"Watch your mouth, Phanuel"
"No, i am serious. Uriel has said that there was a future for you with the one you've turned, and if he's the one you turned, you chose right" she turned fully to Eden. "Your blood is tainted... and pure. You are a vital asset to your kind, and you waited long enough to fight aloe" she chuckled. Eden growled before looking to her. "Keep talking and your pretty goldilocks will be tainted with blood"
Phanuel chuckled before sauntering past her. "Alright, alright... Have it your way..." She said before walking out the door and turned. "I'll return later" she said before disappearing.
Eden had walked off, asfter closing the door. She sighed with frustration as she walked up the stairs and to her room
Hearing the knock at the door from his own room far in the back Cavs had stepped out into the living room. Something about Hared had once again come up. Who was this guy? Perhaps he was far worse then others made him out to be, to think that he was trying to all but destroy his first weapon ever made and to do so by the use of ghouls was even worse. Of course that would mean one thing the creature he had seen so many years ago was indeed what these memphas call a Paleskin or to humans a ghoul. It was a creature that was partly dead but not fully dead.
Hearing the name of Van Helsing and Frankenstin brought up even more fond memories. Stepping into the light of the fireplace Cav cleared his throat a bit to make his presence known. [b "Frankenstin's monster is more likely what he is after, the doctor is long dead. His creature last I knew was in New York city working with the Nameless order to keep the demon prince there from raising his army here. The Gargoyles are however very pressed against it."] taking in a deep breath he also raised a finger. [b "As for Van Helsing you have the blood line standing in front of you."]
taking a step more into the light of the room a deep presence hit the boy. [b "I am Caveziel Inrei, Last living male of the Van helsing's main blood line. My twin sister is tucked safely away in a safe house built by my fore fathers for the time when the sun would be blocked out. My family's name changed when we moved here to the states, and we allowed our family within Europe to keep the family name incase someone went looking into the history of our family."]
Holding up yet again his finger another deep breath Caveziel continued. [b "In seventeen sixty-three My ancestor Victor had brought his son Gabriel to the chample in Romania in where he would earn his name as Van Helsing slayer of the supernatural and wanted murder of all to those who knew nothing of the supernatural world. Others would call him monster hunter, Demon killer, and most of all the right hand of God. It was during his time with Anna Valeria that they had a child. That child was named Henry Van Helsing. Henry had three children of his own. Ivan, Jessica, and Hope. Ivan is my Ancestor and the main branch of the Van Helsing name. He had come here to the Americans during the colonization period and built up a name for himself as the greatest black market dealer. Jessica's line holds the Van Helsing name now and are scattered mostly through Germany France and Spain. Hope's family ended during world war two as they were experimented on by the Nazi's and Russians both trying to figure a way to adapt my family's strength into their soldiers with little success."]
Brushing off the looks that were given to him by it seems everyone he went on some more. [b "As for the Foundation that contains demons of the darker parts they have yet to find the single demon that my family has kept trapped within The Fortress. A Creature that Originated Immortality. Alexander Convenes himself It is also from him that my sister and I draw our bloodline's from as it is his daughter that our father married."]
Eden sighed to herself as she looked ahead. He was right. He couldn't be controlled... But, she wasn't looking to control him. She was looking to help him keep humans in line. Yet... Through the entire ordeal, she had to take some of the matter into her hands. She looked over to Eutharian and Matheus, who shrugged as she walked away. She looked at the situation another way. She had to see this a whole new way.
She ended up in her room, sitting on black satin and pondering... She had to make sure things were not going where she thought it was... But, when she thought about Vlad and Judas, knowing that it was damn near impossible to actually find them, it made her huff. She had to try... She had to get Herod. She had to stop him before other immortals and even humans are harmed by his plans. She looked up before hearing a knock on her door. "What is it?" She asked as the door opened. Asmodian looked over to her as she raked her locs back. "Someone is at the door..." She looked at him a moment, confused. The look on his face was flat, almost monotone. "It's an immortal... But, i think you'll find her interesting..."
Her? She stood and sighed as she walked behind Asmodian. Who she saw irritated her... Not only demons were annoying... So were the other side. There... On her doorstep... Was Phanuel, and she looked like she always had... wearing a white skirt with pearls and a sort of pink top... looking casual, but her aura was unmistakable to say the least.
"What is it, Phanuel?"
Phanuel's curly tresses bounced as she looked to Eden. "Geez, you can't say hi at least?" Eden sighed and rolled her eyes. "Hello, now why are you here?"
Phanuel chuckled before looking over to Eden again. "I came because there had been news that you have broken your oath" Eden sighed with agitation. "... And?"
Phanuel shrugged. "I dunno... NBut your oath being broken had opened a whole can of worms that i don't think you wanted at all" She said, annoyed. Eden looked at her before growling. "So what else is new?"
"No, i mean, there was a shift with the planes. There has been some things happening under the crest that i know you've been dying to find out... Herod is up and at it again..."
She growled with full anger. "What?"
"Oh, but it gets better. He's using Paleskins..."
"Paleskins? The Ghouls?" Eden was a bit confused at the problem. Ghouls had been a problem for the human race... But why was Herod using them?
"They're translucent... They can manipulate things around them, even humans. He's using them for experimentation because he feels they are incapable to rebel... Like you have." She eyed Eden as she finished the sentence. Eden scoffed as she growled. "Herod is far too stupid to think that they are in need of a master."
"Of course, but he's also looking for some people...Victor Frankenstein and Van Helsing. He's hoping to have Victor take on the removal of the capability to think for itself... In other words, he's forcing them to be tangible enough to suffocate the main components that makes them act emotionally"
Eden couldn't believe it. She looked to Phanuel before looking ahead. "If this bastard... "
Phanuel nodded. "I would suggest you watch your back... Something is wrong here, and we need you to keep him at bay until the time comes"
Eden looked at Phanuel. "Don't think i'm gonna let you fight my battles for me, Phanuel. He and i have some business to settle... And i won't let you or the Seven Archs Pariah get involved in my fight"
"We may not have a choice, Eden. This does involve the humans God made, and it can very well spell a disaster if Herod gets his hands on some strong entities. And we both know what happened to them..."
They shared a glance. Of course she knew. Humans, otherwise people in a society called The SCP Foundation, have some of the most dangerous and life-threatening demons known to the underworld. Eden shook her head. Oh, my God... Herod, you've gone too far...
Cav had heard the low growl reverberate through his spine and yet he did not flinch even once. [b "This way please Caveziel."] said a calm voice from the side off on the right. [b "Very well."] standing and going towards the hall that would lead to the bedrooms he poked his head over his shoulder. [b "Before I go, remember one thing. I am still Caveziel Inrei, I am a person who can not be controlled. Also if Cain wanted me so badly he would have taken me the same day he gave me the card. Breaking into my house and killing all the guards I had there with me."]
Following the single female person who seemed to be human still he continued along the way to dead stop at the last room on the left side. [b "This is your room Caveziel."] nodding he went inside and looked around. A blank room really, Four white walls, high ceiling two windows, bed, dresser, two side tables, a closet, even a small cedar chest at the foot of the bed. Before he could ask about anything the door was shut and Caveziel was left to the room himself.
Nothing was said. Only eyebrows arched and furrowed. "Vez, Armand is in France. He refused to leave." Eden looked at him, then ahead after seeing the card. "... And I would take care. Cain may not be into what Herod is, but Cain is also into sibling and friendly trades... If you call it that. Cain isn't bald. He uses a trance on humans to make him look like that. He wanted you to become one of us by Herod's hands. It's a good thing I've gotten to you first"
A low growl escaped her before looking to Eutharian. "Show him to his room. Training starts tomorrow "
Nodding the young vampire looked at the group still his face blank. [b "You mean to tell me a vampire was experimenting on other people to see if he could create daylight walkers like the blade movies? Did he by chance to try impregnating a human women instead of you know making them through other means? Did no one bother to think that perhaps the reason vampires aren't seen during the daylight hours is if they aren't fully turned by drinking someone's blood the sunlight burns the vampire genetic out of their system or a fully born or turned vampire just burns?"]
Turning to Matteus he nodded. [b "Note to self no meeting the vampires themselves especially big named guys."] Holding up his finger before the group could talk again. [b "Would by chance one of these guys have long flowing black hair, speaks like he is from france or something calls himself Armand? Has a little pet thing that runs around with him doesn't talk? Think the creature's name is Santiago or something like the sort."] Thinking about it he nodded to himself like he had it right the way he spoke their names.
[b "If they are any of those vampires then I have met a few of them already. I am sure Cain and I have had a few dealings in the past, but never met face to face either. Bald headed sort of man, bright blue eyes looks kind of bat like even with human shape. Gangling looking thing now a days I think. Slightly older fellow."] Digging into his pocket in his jacket he pulled out a blank black card with the single letter C on the card in red. [b "He had a calling card sent to me I'm sure also. Something about making a deal and him knowing my business outside of the public figure."]
Eutharian looked over to him "Oh... Vampires. Vampires yes, Memphas?? Not so much. You see, Herod used her as a Guinea pig first. He was making Memphas that could walk in daylight, so that he could rule the waking and sleeping worlds. He made his first mistake in allowing her loose in battle." He stared at Eden. "Besides, Newborn, If you could remember, you just rejected a vial of blood twice, mistaking it for booze. That can be your proof. Blood helps us survive, its not a crutch like it is for the likes of Herod and Ramses." Eutharian looked at Vez. "I'd rather you not meet them. Off rip, just seeing Cain, you'd feel a anger you can't scratch away." He looked to Matheus. "Oh, and his dear old man... You dont wanna meet him"
Crossing his legs as he sat like he normally did in business meetings Caveiziel looked at the group with a blank face. [b "It takes more then having a group of old folk threaten me to scare me."] The male just looked at the group his eyes a golden gleam instead of their original human blue. [b "I may have changed, but A mempha or vampire would that not require me to drink blood before I fully turn?"]
Caveziel and Eden shuffled into the room as the boys were conversing. Eutharian was the first to spot them before Matheus and Asmodian did, and approach their mother with exclamations. She huffed, silencing them. "Sit down, boys." She said calmly. She looked at Caveziel, who had a concentrating look on his face. She sighed as she watched him look throughout the room. Vez was battling this weird feeling in the pit of his stomach that would only be sedated by taking this damn jacket off! He looked sway, attempting to look at the room to distract him.
"Okay. Vez, have a seat." She looked at everyone. Matheus and Asmodian looked to each other before looking to him. Eutharian looked to Eden. "I think you should hear this, Eden."
She sighed in frustration. "Come on, guys, not this again." Rubbing her temples, she looked to Eutharian, whose eyes were stuck on her. "I don't have any doubt you turning him was for a worthy cause. The Styx Aerie hadn't detected anything, but i have. The moment you turned him, the Earth shifted. You've managed to duplicate everything you are in him, not bits and pieces like other turns. You actually turned a human into one of us... A Mempha"
Matheus huffed as Asmodian looked at Caveziel. "I see it... He's wearing your signature... But, he also created his own. Fledglings can't do that so soon" Matheus growled. "Not cool. What if they felt that shift?"
"I dunno if this is good news or bad news, but they weren't on the plane at the time of the shift... "
Everyone had quieted. They weren't on the plane? If not... Where did they go... Eden could only guess, but her sigh broke the silence in the room. "Now, now, boys. Let's not scare him. Right now, we should focus on accommodating Caveziel into our pack."
The young fledling vampire had followed the maker of his. While compulsion was apart of the pull it was more of the lure and pull at the hints and drops of discovery of his new found power and strength that drew him in. While the world would be completely different then what he knew already it would be like nothing changed much for him anyways. He was growing up always around blood, Violence, Sex, and even Drugs sense he was but a boy. He knew how to guard himself and how to phase out the world when it was needed. And coming down to business was a second nature to him at this point in his age.
Of course the difference was how he felt affected by what had happened. He still couldn't wrap his head around the fact that he would have died had she not turned him. How could he have been so foolish to try and walk out the back door thinking he would be safe going through the kitchen of a place that anyone around knew of and any big members of gangs knew the backdoor to the kitchen and the side door that went into the freezer from outside.
Caveziel had still refused the drink offered to him, while tonic was not bad for a body, the idea of drinking blood yet revolted and turned his stomach doing flips over itself alone. The young boy knew of course that he would have to drink it eventually to stay alive but right now would not help him any if at all to do so. And whats more to drink chilled stuff drew even his vampiric senses over edge. He would have to learn to control them and down the blood no matter where it came from and soon, but now wasn't the best time for that either.
Following behind her the idea of becoming use to his senses again drew more questions up in his head. What was it that he would have to get use to again? He understood the super sight, he caught that the moment he 'awoke' in the dinner wholes in his shirt and blood everywhere. The colors were vibrant more so then ever. His hearing hadn't hit him until after he came to this estate here with her and the motely crew of people she had with her he had caught the smell of a small brook running somewhere in the back yard, and the forest from across the road left an earthly pine smell about the place, but more so was the game smell that came off the animals in the forest that seemed to avoid the edge of the forest because of the creatures in the house now. It was like the animals could tell they weren't normal.
Even more so the hearing became an uproar of sounds which he had quickly learned to tone out as the heavy sounds of cars zooming past him, or the loud engines of the trucks and semis driving past nearly caused him to crash several times. And not to mention his super hyper sensitive skin drove him nuts in the suit he wore. The wind whipped around his clothing, but he wanted nothing more then to tear it all off and scratch off his skin because it felt like he was crawling with a thousand bugs crawling all over him.
The look on his face was cold, stone cold. It almost surprised her. There was a certain detachment from the situation, as if he still didn't totally believe he was a vampire. She sighed before setting down her glass. Eden looked to him, and summed up what she could to calm him.
[I "Caveziel... I didn't choose you for this purpose alone. I could see a destiny beyond your revenge... It's one of my curses. Trapped in the blood of The Sea Witch. I can see their futures, human and beast alike. Yours... Well, yours was a haze at first, but as soon as you looked at me, it would clear into two forms... A woman and a man... And, above them stood a name..."] She was trying to hide her blush with little success. [I " My name"]
[I "I will help you claim your title, if you wish it. And now that you're one of us, i will personally train and teach you. I must prepare you. Otherwise, you'll be bait, and i won't allow that."] Eden looked at the glass. [I " It's not liquor, Vez. We fuse drops of blood to a flat tonic. You won't damage anything. "]
She then stood, half chuckling. [I " I'm sorry, I'm talking your ear off. You should walk with me, Vez... Get acquainted with your basic functions again"] she stuck her hand out, softly offering her hand as an invitation to come along. Her smile was ginuwine, her hazel eyes half mast, cast in a mysterious shadow. She couldn't help it. She had too much of a kind heart to be hard on her first fledgling. If she had taken the duty to teach him, she would do so right. [I "Come with me"]
The new fledgling nodded at the women in front of him. It seemed she would talk about the coven and the world she was deeply involved it seemed. And while the mortals, or rather humans didn't know existed, but coexisted with. And to make it worse his Empire was smack in the middle of them at that forcing them to make allies with him. A nod of no came to the man when he was offered a drink, He hadn't touched the stuff and would refrain from doing so, he was a Crime boss yes, but drinking had done his childhood damage and he would not see the same happen to his own brood when he chose to have children, or if he could now.
Having his partner explain to him the covens and who they all were didn't seem to phase him one bit. All religious icons were based off these beings of power, and to him it was no surprise they were immortals of sorts. Vampires always seemed to stick out like a sore thumb in history, and their marks were well put on history. Of course anyone who actually lived to see a vampire was long past dead or their memories wiped or turned. Otherwise humans would be hunting the nightwalkers down wouldn't they?
Shaking his head no again to her question the male let her go on.
Eden sighed as she looked to Caveziel, who seemed busy in covering their tracks. She had to use the time... The more he knows, the better the lessons will be.
She approached him.[I "Does he know of the assassination attempt?"] She was referring to this Tony. She shook her head ,chuckling. [I " Don't worry, Caveziel. You've made a smart move of keeping him informed. And keeping your sister on speed dial is smart, too. More likely your uncle will try to get to her after believing you've been killed"]
She knew he'd feel a bit on edge about her knowing about it, but shrugged. [I "I will explain over a glass of Henny. What's your poison?]
After pouring glasses for him and herself,she gave him his glass as she walked to her living room. She took a seat as he encouraged her to tell him.
[I " Well... I guess my story starts a good few centuries ago... I was turned in 1775, when I was being lynched for marrying a black man without my father's consent. I was turned by Vlad Dracula, accompanied by Judas Iscariot. At that time, The Styx Aerie had been formed, as a group of foolish souls seeking redemption among their eternity. There are seven covens: The Seven Arch's Pariah, a group of Archangels cast out by God. Michael, Uriel, Gabriel, Phanuel, Raguel, Raphael, and Remiel house there. They chose Vampirism to hide away from humanity, as it was why they were condemned;
The Tevet Galére, holds betrayers of Prophets seeking redemption. The members are more than most because they needed to suffer for their cruelty against God. Sariel, Shimon ben Shetach, Bahya ibn Paquda, Hobot Ha Le Ba Not, Nebuchadnezzar II, and Esther council this coven. I will warn you, they seem tempting with their tongues. They will try to convince you to do anything they wished. If you submit, you will become a slave until either you break their spell, or until they are through with you... And once their bored, they don't let you live.
The Seven Sins Sabbath, you should be familiar with... Pride, Envy, Gluttony, List, Wrath, Greed, and Sloth... Well, in that order, the members are Lucifer, Leviathan, Beelzebub, Drude, Satan, Mammon, and Belphegor. They are children of the Creator, not God. Aside from Lucifer, that is. I'll get to the creator soon.
The Sryx Aerie, as you heard a few times is where I came from. It was formed by Vlad Dracula, a bystander turned prodigy for vampires everywhere, taking the title of the warrior of eternal love. Judas, Bartholomew, Ramses, Herod, Cain and Solomon are the council there... After Vlad and Judas went into hiding for a rumor spread of him murdering humans , Herod took over .. Started making ideas about making soldier vampires for his selfish reasons. I was the first to be experimented on... The first successful one and the purest blood. I rebelled when I realized he was experimenting on other newborn vampires. They're after me for more than one reason...
There's the Coterie of Discord is a coven sitting in Transylvania, made by Vlad's late cousin Elizabeth Bathory. Nimrod, Jack The Ripper and Sweeney Todd are there, small but lively. They're more into gore , so expect it if we have to visit their residence. The Council... Is where our Creator resides...he is Abaddon, the right hand of God, given permission to create beasts.He keeps his most prestigious sons with him... Famine, Conquest, Pestilence, and Death..."]
She looked at him. [I "Any question so far?"]
the young male followed the group home. Of course it looked odd as he was it seemed the only one on a motorcycle where the others were all piled into the back of a car which Cav didn't recognize. It must have been a foreign made care with special detail and design for the inside and custom outside as trying to even look at all the cars he knew none of them matched. Of course it wouldn't surprise him, as mrs Shepard had said she was a Mempha which was if he got it an experimental vampiric weapon. They were usually failures from the sound, as Mrs Shepard said she was the first successful one they had.
Of course likely her group was all mempha that had escaped them, which meant there had to be other ones as well, but if he was to learn of that it wasn't now. Of course one day perhaps he would. His biggest concern however was making sure his sister, and his business would be running smoothly without him keeping a constant eye on them. Thrumming through the thoughts that had flooded into his head he shoved some ideas to the side and even considered some, but most of all he came up with only one idea for certain as he didn't know when it was that he would return.
What kept drawing his attention however was that Shepard had kept speaking of how he was a middle man, it was like the vampires were scared of him a mortal, well previously a mortal, it was like they didn't want to cross him to get to the other groups that it sounded like he was surrounded by. The only groups he knew of around him were the Styx to the North, The Aztec to the east, they didn't work together but they tolerated one another, their border was strict and an eye kept heavy on it. To the West was the Dragon born, odd people but a good partner for him to go into business with especially sense they tended to not have much of a price.
To the south was a group called Memph which he should have guessed was Shepard and her little group of peoples, but it could have been all a ruse set up specifically to catch the styx coven of vampires hunting them of course. Pulling to a stop just shy of the bumper on the car he took off the helmet and let his natural skater look take over. Instead of following any of the groups he pulled out his phone again and made another quick phone call. the phone kept ringing and ringing, but no answer. Instead it went to voice mail. [b "Hey sis, its me. Just wanted to let you know I won't be in town, be extra careful a few people might be hunting."]
Hanging up Cav dialed another number on his phone. [b "Tony I want it done. No traces."] Of course while he expected the first phone call he made to work, he wanted it covered to be sure it would actually happen and no tracks back to him could be found. While young in age considering he was only twenty-four years of age he was a smart person and an even smarter businessman. He had made himself an empire and stayed out of jail by covering up his tracks and covering up the tracks of those who covered his own. Of course no one in his employment had died from his hand or on his orders, even the assassins he had sent after his uncle a few moments past would be paid well and sent off to never be seen again anytime soon.
OK... All her boys had climbed into the car before she turned the car on.
As Eden drove off, Asmodian, Eutharian, and Matheus bumrushed her. "Eden, your oath!"
"What about it?"
"You swore you wouldn't turn any humans. You could've just let him die!" Asmodian argued.
"You have no idea the price of that decision could've been"
"So? We're vampires"
"That type of thinking is why you're not going to make it alone"
Asmodian growled at her as Matheus picked up" You can't mean -"
"If i let him die, humans will be sure to make this place a hot spot. Plus, he's a Godfather. Did any of that sink in?"
Eutharian nodded. "Dead Godfather, mafia comes for revenge, bloodier outcome."
Eden sighed. "At least someone gets it! Besides, I'm sure he's a formidible ally"
"By turning him? What if he used you?"
"You forget I'm a Mempha, too, Asmodian. I can tell when someone is lying."
Matheus growled. "So, we're just supposed to look the other way?"
"If you want to stay in this coven, you should understand i don't do anything i feel won't help us"
Asmodian growled at her. "This is help?"
She growled back. "Either you get with the program, or step out of it. I don't need a jealous child in my coven"
With that she waved her fingers. [I "Go."] afterwhich, she had parked in front of a home hidden in the trees, and eyed Caveziel approaching on the bike. All the while, all she could do was wonder... Why did i turn you?
Eutharian and Matheus stared as she watched him dismount. Eden was already worn out by the fact that her boys didn't approve, but to her, they seemed like three jealous sons. They didn't expect her to do such a thing... But, what she expected was for them to disapprove.
She climbed out of her car and started for her house. She was too frustrated with all of them to even try talking. She needed space.
