Abilities & Weaknesses
STRENGTH – Vampires are considerably much stronger than Supernatural Hunters and humans. They are able to shatter windows and doors with ease, single-handedly tear out the hearts of other vampires and creatures with little to no effort, and much more. Their strength has been used to break necks and spines, break and move heavy objects. Any impact with strong enough force can send anyone flying.
SPEED – Vampires are much faster than Supernatural Hunters and Humans, as well as younger vampires and even some werewolves. They are able to stop others in their tracks, run miles in mere minutes and can easily catch up to others, supernatural or not. Their reflexes are similarly heightened.
AGILITY – Vampires possess superhuman agility, flexibility, and dexterity than Supernatural Hunters, werewolves, and humans. They can move quickly, jump very high, climb and run incredibly fast without difficulty or exhaustion.
SENSES – Vampires have extremely keen senses of hearing, sight and smell that far exceed those of Supernatural Hunters and humans.
DURABILITY – Vampires can take far more trauma than Supernatural Hunters werewolves, and humans can, without much discomfort or injury. It is known, however, that despite all their strength and so on, a normal vampire is not invincible. Even a vampire can die. Ordinary bullets, knives and blunt objects can hurt a vampire; not kill them. But a wooden stake or bullet is enough to kill them if you get it directly into their heart.
HEALING – The injuries of vampires heal faster than those of Supernatural Hunters, werewolves, and humans. Vampires also seem to heal much slower when exposed to vervain or wooden stakes and bullets. They can heal, recover and regenerate from any and all injuries in a matter of seconds. A vervain-laced liquid has also been shown to weaken them, though they recover from the effects much more quickly.
EMOTIONS – Vampires experience emotions more powerfully than humans. Emotions like love, joy, and happiness are intensified for vampires allowing them to live life more intensely. This ability allows the original vampires to feel emotions at their peak regardless of their age.
COMPULSION – Vampires can control and influence the thoughts, emotions, behaviour, actions and memories of humans and other vampires, they cannot, however, compel witches, immortals, Original Vampires, or werewolves.
TELEPATHY – Vampires have the ability to enter the minds of others as long as theirs is stronger than the mind they are attempting to enter. Normally, this ability works in a tactile fashion and the vampire requires physical contact in order for it to work successfully.
DAYWALKER – Being an original vampire, Drakos has the ability to walk in daylight without getting injured, catching on fire, or dying, unlike normal vampires who tend to wear rings or necklaces that protect them from the sun.
BROKEN NECK – Breaking a vampire’s neck will not kill them, but it will render them unconscious for several hours.
DESICCATION – Being completely drained of blood or the heart stopping will cause a vampire to desiccate like any other, losing most of it’s strength and any ability to move. The desiccated body of a vampire will appear as a corpse and can only start functioning again once they feed on blood. This process can be replicated artificially by a witch casting a desiccation spell.
INVITATION – In order to enter any house owned by humans, they need to be invited in by a person that officially lives there or the person of entitlement. Once invited, the invitation cannot be revoked. If a vampire lives in a house, other vampires can enter freely and if a vampire is in the house without being invited in, it will become disoriented and will begin to suffocate. If the ownership to a house changes while inside, vampires would become disoriented and pulled from the house against their will.
MAGIC – Witches can dangerously affect a being as powerful as a vampire. Witches can also do spells that can seriously harm even the strongest vampire. Minor spells have little effect. An example of a spell that can be used to effect a vampire is the spell with sage that can block a vampire’s hearing.
VERVAIN – Vervain prevents vampires from compelling anyone who takes it and burns them on touch.
WEREWOLF BITE – A werewolf’s bite is extremely fatal to most vampires. It’s been known to kill a vampire within hours. However, being an original vampire, a bite from a werewolf would just weaken him greatly but not kill him.
WOOD – Wooden stakes and wooden bullets won’t kill an original such as Drakos but they will weaken and slow him down.
SILVER LACED DAGGER – When Drakos or any of his siblings became bored or wished to leave this world they would have another sibling thrust a unique dagger into their heart, as long as it remained in place the original would sleep until awoken centuries later.
UNKNOWN SOURCES – Though original vampires are thought to be completely unkillable, there are few items out there that will end an originals life.
“Rei is a name you will know well if you have come across Drakos, for where he goes she is never far behind. These two met centuries ago what she was just a pup, left alone in the forest without a mother to care for her. Drakos didn’t think twice before taking this poor defenceless creature home and raising her himself and there, the two were bonded for life, protective and loyal to one another until their ends.”
“Anna, a young demoness and Drakos’ soul mate, they met when the two were very young, a short time after he had left Black Hollow. The two spent most their time together whenever they could, it was soon clear that they had feelings for each other and fell in love soon after, as the years past they eventually became married with many children, all of which are now grown and living their own lives.”
“Drakos and Ska, the two have been allies and close friends for centuries. The two had aided each other in many troubling times whether it be personal or an equal agenda, they were always there for each other. Over time their bond grew stronger and it was clear they had feelings for each other, perhaps even a spark from the day they first met. All was clear that when he was with her, he was truly happy.”
“Since their first moment, that very moment when their eyes met from across the Inn Drakos felt overwhelmingly drawn to this girl. Love, lust, hunger? Perhaps a mixture of the three, her scent was intoxicating to him that much was clear. But it soon became more than that, getting to know this girl brought him contentment, Drakos had always chosen his friends with the utmost of care. The urge for him to watch over this girl, to protect her from those who meant her harm grew deep within him. For those who upset his Anastasia, his wrath would be swift.”
- My Story Is...
“One of the first vampire families, a father and his five children each born to a different mother, the heirs to his kingdom.
Ruby – the eldest of the five siblings, fearless on the battlefield and perhaps the greatest leader of all the siblings, she can be rather bossy at times.
Danteus – the second child, born on the fields of battle and plunged into a life of war. He is usually quick to anger but deep down he has a good heart.
Drakos – the third child, the most honourable among the six and loyal to each of his siblings. It is him who stands between sibling rivalry and keeps the peace among this family.
Ganaka – the fourth child, she tends to keep herself out of the way of her trouble making siblings. She is usually found hidden away in the library, a habit she picked up from her brother Drakos.
Lilly – the fifth child, she is rather shy at times and being the youngest sibling she tends to shy away from confrontation. She carries the kindest and most forgiving heart of any of her siblings, though she is also the most dangerous.”
“Black Hollow are the lands of which the Dragule family rule over, the vast prosperous city resides at the center which is inhabited by Vampires, Humans and Witches. The borders of Black Hollow are thick and dangerous forest lands, inhabited by the Dragule families oldest enemies, the Lycans. Throughout the centuries countless wars have broken out between the Dragule family and the Lycans, while both remain, there will never be peace within Black Hollow.”
“From a young age Drakos was brought up to survive in this world, along with his siblings. His father, a good man at the start but corrupted by power and greed he soon went to claim all he could under the name Dragule. Vladimir Dragule, a king among vampires and ruler of many, all of his children birthed by a different mother as there father wished for a number of offspring to shape and mold as weapons to destroy his enemies and command his armies.”
“At the age of eighteen, after ten long years of being taught and trained how to survive in this world his father had created, in the city of Black Hollow his journey would begin. With his older brother, Danteus, the two stood ready for their fathers orders, to lead his armies into battle and take what their father wanted, taking orders without question as they had been brought up to do, completing any and all tasks their father sent to them. It was many long and bloody century’s until Drakos questioned his father’s motives, surely there was more to life than this, than war. Few of his siblings shared these thoughts or were too afraid to face their father with such questions and have his wrath fall upon their heads but not Drakos, in fact Drakos feared little in this world, nothing he had come across to this day had put fear within him, all but the darkness that lay within himself.”
The Darkness Within~
Though all the Dragule siblings share the same father, each have a different mother, passing down different gifts to their children, Drakos’ mother was an elder witch, well known within the covens. Drakos had inherited one of her most darkest abilities, a rare dark magic that few could conjure and that even fewer could control, most witches who had this gift either never used it themselves, or became corrupted by it.
