Personality and TraitsEdit

During her first encounter with the warlock Robert Cauldwell she appeared selfish; in her way of ignoring how she treated her subjects and servants. Spoiled due to her station as a noble and socialite; to gain an audience a gift was to be tributed too her, though even with tribute it didn't guarantee she would show or when she did listen to the pleas of her subjects. A complete sadist by nature, she gained absolute pleasure when she tortured and ravaged her captives. Vigil aka Rasmus didn't experience anything new during his ninty-year "stay" where he was tortured and physically and mentally abused and broken.

Over the period of years (centuries) Charity was forced into isolation/exile she became something even m

ore darker than her past self—crazy, inhumane, vicious, cold-blooded, cold-hearted, vengeful, jealous, malicious and a new found sense for power. Something the ripper side of Vigil picked up was Cherry's trait to consider the destruction of the human both physical and mental to be artistic.

She treated sex like a game, using it as a reward and sometimes as punishment..

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Some of these powers are more potent when the vampire gets older and feeds on human blood.

  • Super Strength - Vampires are much stronger than humans and grow stronger with time. Even new vampires who are still in transition can toss a fully grown human across a room with great speed and force. Their strength is also more powerful then werewolves that are not in wolf form.
  • Super Speed - Vampires can accelerate their movements to cover short distances in an instant, faster than the human eye can see. When running across long distances, they appear as vibrating blurs of motion.
  • Emotional Control - The supernatural ability to control and manipulate the emotions of one's self.
  • Heightened Senses - They can hear whispered conversations, even ones in far off buildings, smell blood, and see in total darkness.
  • Mind Compulsion - Vampires have the ability to control minds, plague people's dreams, and alter/erase human memories.
  • Immortality - A vampire stops aging once turned. Upon their transformation, vampires then on become immune to all conventional illness, disease, virus and infection. The only known disease or infection that can kill a vampire is a werewolf bite.
  • Healing Factor - Vampires can snap their finger bones back into place after being broken and have been seen to fully recover from gunshots, stab wounds, and torso impalement.


  • Vervain - When ingested, vervain causes a vampire to become severely weak and feverish. Also, If a vampire's skin is exposed to vervain, it can result in burning them.
  • Wood - If a vampire is wounded by wood it will cause the vampire to become severely weak and if a vampire takes a wooden stake through its heart it will result in death.
  • Fire or Sunlight - Any exposure to fire or sunlight will result in death to a vampire.
  • Heart Extraction - The act of removing a vampire's heart will result in death.
  • Werewolf Bite - The bite of a werewolf is extremely lethal to normal vampires.
  • Magic - Witches are able to give supernatural aneurysms that cause the blood vessels of vampires to explode.
  • Decapitation - The act of dismembering or removing the head of a vampire will result in death.
