    Personality

    Veronika comes off as a sweet and affectionate, if somewhat shy child fraught with anxiety and occasional bouts of childish immaturity. Generally polite, albeit innocently mischievous at times, she is hardly different from ordinary children. Excited at the prospect of making new friends and grateful for the kindness others, she can be quite cheerful when surrounded by people she trusts. Curious by nature, Veronika reacts excitedly to learning new information and can often be found reading books and scrolls. Borderline obsessed with keeping her adorable appearance perfect at all times, she enjoys long baths and pretty clothes and usually has the sweet fragrance of perfume about her.

    But the innocent girl she once was is dead, gone. Behind her sweet face and thick smiles is the mind of a calculating monster. An evil wearing her appearance rose from the little girl’s corpse in a foul mimicry of life - an evil with her memories not because it is her, but because it uses who Veronika used to be as a guide to blend into human society. The little vampire is fully aware she looks awfully adorable, especially when she smiles. Much like everything about the girl, it is all a lie. Those cutesy smiles never reach Veronika’s big eyes, where treachery hides behind a veil of caution.

    Utterly ruthless, gleefully cruel and borderline sociopathic, the girl is a selfishness incarnate whose ambitions reach the stars. A narcissist with a cold diabolical brain, she views living beings as mere sacks of meat that exist to be used and disposed of. Even though pretending to be a sweet little kid, Veronika is a predatory creature who gets rid of anyone who gets in her way or slows her down. A schemer and coward, her only true loyalty is to herself and her quest for power.


    History

    Sole heir to a wealthy and powerful Salvari noble, Veronika was born into a life of luxury and influence. Pampered and groomed into a proper little lady, she had never tasted discomfort during life, becoming a spoiled child beyond reproach and growing used to getting her way at all times. At the same time, hers was a sheltered, lonely life - one devoid of friends and fun games. All joys of childhood fell victim to pushing Veronika's potential to the limit for the sake of turning her into an acceptable candidate for an arranged marriage. Attending grand social gatherings was mandatory for the noble family and presented the only escape from the sheltered life Veronika had.

    Returning from a ball one late night, the family’s coach was beset by a pack of vampires. Murdered with the rest of her relatives, the girl did not share the merciful death of her parents, for her breast had been pierced by a pair of razor sharp fangs. Born anew as a foul, undead creature laid to rest in a fresh grave, Veronika started her new life by clawing her way to freedom. New to the world of darkness, the fledgling vampire spawn followed its instincts and wandered the night in search of its creator. It wasn’t long until the dead girl joined the pack responsible for the death of her family.

    Bound to her creator for over a century, she had learned much under her master’s guidance and grew into a capable little terror to stalk the night. When Veronika’s master made the fatal mistake of willingly letting her drink his blood, returning her free will, the vampire child feigned gratefulness and remained with the pack. But vampires had always been solitary, selfish creatures. Once the pack outlived its usefulness and threatened to attract too much attention by their growing size and foul deeds, the small vampire sent word to the Church of the Ethereal Sway before disappearing into the mist.

    Her family estate had long since crumbled into a desolate ruin, just like the once proud family name. Veronika started absorbing the lives and identities of others to stay undetected. Unable to stay in one play for longer than several years, be it for the string murders that follow her wherever she goes or her eternal youth, the vampire had traveled a lot before playing the role of a poor orphan to become a particularly gifted scribe of the Church of the Ethereal Sway.


    Appearance

    Veronika retains the physical appearance of the age at which she was turned during her mortal life, meaning she will forever bear the unassuming form of a small girl. Childishly chubby cheeks perfectly complement her round face and further accent the girl’s immaculate youth. Doe-eyed and armed with a simpering smile that invites trust, she is a short-statured child whose youthful look defies her true age. A crown of shoulder-length raven-black hair sits atop her head and a pair of cyan-hued eyes cautiously scrutinize the world about. Her unnaturally pale complexion is unblemished and gives Veronika the impression of a porcelain doll.

    Fond of being pretty and looking cute, little Veronika takes meticulous care of her appearance and actively grooms the pristine image of an innocent young girl to always get her way. The girl is prone to wearing clothes that don’t make her stand out, though secretly prefers fancy gowns and long dresses. A charming, warm smile often reveals two rows of pearl white teeth, careful not to give away two small yet razor sharp fangs capable of tearing flesh from bone and draining blood from the body.


    Skills

    • Educated - Well-read and tutored by some of the most esteemed private teachers of Salvar during the time she was alive, and with plenty of time now that she is dead, the small vampire is knowledgeable in alchemy, math and astrology, able to read and write, skilled at dancing and playing the piano, and an exceptional baker.
    • Swordsmanship - Despite her small size and unassuming appearance, Veronika is actually a gifted duelist, having had the pleasure of personally meeting multiple skilled swordsmen during her short unlife. Unable to use large swords effectively due to her physical indisposition, rapiers are her weapon of choice and she wields them with deadly swiftness and grace.



    Abilities

    • Darkvision - Veronika can see in dim light as if it were bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light. She can't discern color in darkness, only shades of gray.
    • Vampiric Grace - Although possessing the frail body of a child, Veronika can use her vampiric reflexes to dodge attacks and move with an unearthly grace and ease, about four times that of an average human being. She can also climb difficult surfaces, including upside down on ceilings.
    • Vampiric Body - While Veronika is technically dead, her undead flesh still mends on its own and can withstand the abuse that would prove lethal to ordinary men. Most injuries go away within an hour, with serious and near-fatal blows taking up to a week to fully heal.




    Equipment

    • Ordinary clothes
    • Travel backpack with camping supplies
    • Glass vials
    • Iron dagger

    Hey there, Veronika! Welcome to Althanas! I apologize for the wait on this and we appreciate your patience. I just have a few things to go over with your abilities.

    Under Skills, Vampiric Body has a couple of abilities tied in under it (Immunity and Regeneration), so it needs to be moved down to the Abilities section, please. What would you say her rate of regeneration is? Like deep wounds healing over a 12 hour period, or something? Just keep in mind, these two abilities tend to be strong and easily eats up the Total Power Level of 15 for Level 1 pretty quickly, if not put you over.

    Cursed Blood is also an ability, and we need you to fully understand that this is a constant-based ability. You will need authorization from any author of a targeted character for subjecting their character into vampirism and control.

    Heading on down to Vampiric Grace, for the enhanced Agility, what would you say as compared to that of a normal human? 2x that of a normal human for now?

    With Mist Form, there are also two different abilities tied in under this one (Mist Form and Flight). There’s no need to split these up, but just letting you know for the future and a better understanding of where your Power Level points are going.

    We’ll get the numbers worked up as soon as edits are made, but Veronika looks overpowered for Level 1 as she sets just reading over these abilities, so please keep that in mind. We’ll probably need to trim some down and/or lock some until Level 2, but we’ll have a starting point as soon as the questions are answered.

    Thanks lots!

    Thank you so much for your edits and they did bring the Total Power level down some, but we are still over the allowed limit for level 1. If we drop Vampiric Grace down to 4x, and lock Cursed Blood until Level 2, then I can get you on your way.
