    I know what I did. And I'd do it again. Which is why I'm here and not going anywhere anytime soon.

    Vampires have long memories.

    Our kind don't tend to have a lot of rules. Even murder isn't necessarily that big a deal. A human matters little, as long as it doesn't attract too much attention. But another Vampire is... a bit of a different matter. Even then, depending on the circumstances, it's not necessarily the end of the world. Your own family, though... there is no walking away from that. I guess, in a way, I should consider myself fortunate. It could be worse. At least I'm away.

    This place is almost as familiar to me now as my own home. I've been here longer than any other student, in fact I've seen several classes come and go. I've even been here longer than most teachers and I'm likely to see even Mr Dover either retire or pass away mysteriously. Those seem to be the only established routes out for the staff. I guess this is not a place you'd choose to teach at if you had any other options. I've thought more than once of transitioning to the teaching staff myself and I've already started assisting in several classes. It breaks the monotony of attending the same classes over and over again.

    My name is Samael Hale. Some call me Sam. Whether or not I like it depends entirely on the tone of your voice and the warmth of your blood.

    Introducing

    Samael Hale

    The Vampire

    LOOKS: Aloof. Thirsty eyes.
    Male, ashy skin, dark messy hair, blue eyes. Modern expensive clothes.

    ORIGIN: Many ages old. Appears as late teens.

    Currently Darkest Self

    STATS:
    Hot: 2
    Cold: 1
    Volatile: -1
    Dark: -1

    CONDITIONS: SAVAGE

    BACKSTORY:

    I have Strings on:
    Elodie Faucher: 2
    Reasons:
    - I am beautiful.
    - She's got no chill and wears her heart on her sleeve and her heart says: death sucks.
    Timothy Oglevee Crompton: 3
    Reasons:
    - I am beautiful.
    - Timothy lives next to you, your bedroom windows face each other, and Timothy leaves his blinds open.
    Annalee Sokolov: 0
    Reasons:
    -

    Have strings on me:
    Annalee Sokolov: 3
    Reasons:
    - I think I got a few drops of blood from one of your feedings on one of the days when it was my turn to clean the classrooms. You really should learn to leave less of a mess, some unscrupulous person might take advantage of you over that someday.
    - It was you who let me in as dawn broke over the horizon when I was locked out of the manor at the edge of night. The angel's subtle answer to my not seeing the point in attending classes I've already passed in previous years. I'm grateful you were awake, even at that time, and that you unlocked the massive doors and saved my unlife.
    Timothy Oglevee Crompton: 2
    Reasons:
    - Timothy lives next to you, your bedroom windows face each other, and Timothy leaves his blinds open.

    HARM:
    [_] [_] [_] [_]

    When you take time to tend to your wounds, once per session you may heal 1 Harm. If someone else is there with you, tending to your wounds delicately and intimately – and perhaps with erotic subtext – you may heal an additional 1 Harm.

    To avoid death, erase all harm and choose one:
    - Become your Darkest Self,
    - Lose all Strings you have on everybody.

    MOVES:
    Hypnotic: You can hypnotize people who have no Strings on you. Roll with Hot.
    On a 10 up, they do exactly what you wish and have no idea that anything is wrong.
    On a 7-9, the hypnosis works, but choose one:
    - they realize exactly what you’ve done to them,
    - they f'ck up your commands,
    - their sanity is unhinged.

    The Feeding: You feed on hot blood, direct from the source. If this is the first time they’ve ever been fed upon, you both mark experience. When you feed, choose two:
    - you heal 1 Harm,
    - you take 1 Forward,
    - they definitely don’t die.

    Darkest Self: Everyone is your pawn, your plaything. You hurt them and make them vulnerable, for sport – like a cat does with a mouse. Maybe you’ll even drain them dry, though you’ll certainly take your time first. You escape your Darkest Self when you’re put in your rightful place, by someone more powerful than you.

    Special: When you deny someone sexually, gain a String on them. When you have sex with someone, lose all Strings on them.

    XP:
    [X] [_] [_] [_] [_]

    IMPROVEMENT:
    _ Add +1 to one of your stats.
    _ Take another Vampire move.
    _ Take another Vampire move.
    _ Take a move from any Skin.
    _ Take a move from any Skin.
    _ You’re in a Vampiric Coterie.
