Because you got one, and he's this jerk.
Hi hi hello, I'm Caz and I used to play here about three thousand years ago when the earth was still cooling. Greatest hits included the angry guy who writes bad movies from Marble Hornets (not the one you're thinking of, the version before that), the sad guy with a cockroach problem from Amnesia, and other charming and social characters. I've missed this place like blazes and I'm so excited to play with you guys.
Grout here is a vampire from the classic World of Darkness (more specifically, the videogame Bloodlines
). He studied psychopathology in the early-to-mid 1800s, got turned by a vampire, and then... carried on studying psychopathology. But now with more blood-drinking. And more fruitless searching for a vampirism cure (and a cure for his frightfully sick wife). And more invasive and occasionally-prophetic hallucinations. He likes facts and he likes clarity and he likes security, and he's not... exactly the most trusting or compassionate person you'll ever meet. He'll be visiting Eway from the mid-1960s, where he's occupying a pretty high position in vampire society, despite only finding out there was
such a thing in the last 50 years or so.
He has some vampire abilities (such as compulsion and mild clairvoyance) which I've asked about on his permissions post here
, so I'd love people to take a look/fill that out if possible. (There's a lot but I've tried to condense it as much as possible.) Also featured on the permissions post: Blood drinking!
He'll be doing a lot of drinking from closet-supplied bloodpacks, but the difference between bloodpacks and humans is like, cardboard vs a steak dinner, so. hmu. Also ghouling!
Ever want to be a mildly-superpowered vampire's thrall? Of course you didn't. But the option is there.
And I'm taakotime
