I am Vongetta Valoris. I was born in 1815, the year of our Lord, in Sussex, England, to my father, the Marquis of Bonhaven and to my mother, Lady Elisabeth Warwick. I spent most of my youth as was appropriate for girls of that age during then, under the care of a governess. Because of my noble blood I was to be schooled in everything that was expected of a lady: etiquette, embroidery, the pianoforte, the flute, the violin. The only sort of literature I was ever allowed were books on poetry, and as such the works of  Byron and Tennyson, yet until today it is only the works of Edgar Allen Poe that remain my personal favourite.

I was something of a hoyden by the time I reached what the ladies deemed a "marriageable" age. Father was constantly on my back about my latest public flouting of the rules - these ranged from horseriding in the park with a few of my best friends (it wasn't my fault they all happened to be male, the female ones didn't seem to be able to hold an intelligent conversation most of the time) to climbing trees on the pretext of rescuing a kitten ("Are you sure it wasn't an excuse to show off your skirts?" Father roared) to engaging in a duel with the neighbour's son, whose father happened to the Duke. 

Though I suffered the wrath of my father often, I was his only child and everything was soon forgiven with the new morning. He was a talented businessman, and I suppose I inherited that little streak of rebelliousness from my mother, who in her own way, went against society's code by helping Father out with his business, though not openly. When an illness took my mother two years later, Father was beside himself with grief. I learnt to be his companion, making sure he would always have a hand when he needed in his business. There were days that he fell into mourning for my mother, and those were the days that my boyish ways stood me through, for it was then that Father leaned heavily on my support.

At nineteen years, Father decided I needed to be safely wed off to ensure a good future. Balls were held in quick succession; grand affairs that lasted through the wee hours of the morning. It was during one of these balls that I met Lord Averly Tresham, society's most notorious rogue. He was also the most dashing, having an aura about him that was at once commanding and mesmerizing. Under his gaze I felt like a woman, a lady to be admired, all instances of my tomboyish ways fell apart when he was near.

I never believed in rumors, but I should have that day. Tresham suggested a game of cards upstairs, away from the noise. I was breathless, excited by this man's attention. The warning bells in my head I had silenced them, and before I knew it we were playing a dangerous game of seduction with each turn of the card. Tresham wanted me, lusted for me, and I lusted for him too.

The last I remember of him was when he entered me; the pain and pleasure mixing into one was indescribable. At the time I did not know, but that night he was to become the sire I never knew, and the night that shattered every illusive dream I had of men.

I knew I couldn't continue living in England. Father would know something was amiss if I locked myself in my room all day. I was horrified by the changes in my body, and the disgusting, newly-acquired thirst for blood. My only choice was to escape. I left a letter for my Father, asking he would forgive me, and took one of his hunting knives from his collection to aid my journey.

I have travelled far since then. First in Africa, where a desert tribe took me in for a while. It is there that I made friends with their hunters, and learnt to survive in a world that wouldn't welcome me with open arms. Then it was a long route to China, and finally I am settled here in L.A. where I have made a few friends at a local nightclub, not in the least a fellow Toreador by the name of Azrael and his partner, Captain Boxman.

The night is young, and I am ready.

I love the storyline. It's well-written and has a sense of finality. I do have two things to point out, though. Me being the typical WoD book thumper you all know and love, *guns racking* I'm assuming you are going for a noncannon character? I mean Brujeador... There have been several notoriously violent Toreador in the books, and the Toreador antitribu are particularly known for their cruelty and deep grudges. Also, what is Spirit's Touch? Are you referring to Spiritus, the power of the Ahrimane? Spiritus can only be learned by Ahrimane because of the shamanic magick used to create one. It strips clan lineage (but not generation) and they adopt the new Ahrimane bloodline. Also, every single one of them are Gangrel and female, typically originating from the Sabbat in the southern U.S. area. The only way you might learn it would be to capture one and "extract" the information.

Thanks guys.

Sorry about the confusion - I meant Boxman, but somehow I keep saying Bloodywolf....both starting with a "B"! So sorry about that - I'll edit my post later, right now I'm swamped with work and barely have time to even breathe..

I know my story isn't very WoD-like, to be honest I have very little WoD knowledge outside of the game (which I haven't got the time to even finish playing), so if I seem to be vague in my storytelling sometimes, I hope you understand. Like I said, the club thread was meant to be fun-like, and hence I think of my character as a Brujeador...it isn't canon at all, but I like it that way, and unless I'm RP-ing in a really strict game complete with rules to adhere, then I don't see a problem with Brujeador as it is.

*disappears to work*

I'll edit my bio later with Boxman in it..

Look at the properties of the picture she uploaded. "valoris/vv.jpg" is at the end of the code. She's got a knife and you gave her that Luger P08. I don't think she would mind being called VV, in fact, I think that is what she was going for.

Actually....I would definitely rather you called me Vongetta. Everytime I see "VV", I'm reminded of that manipulative chick in Bloodlines. Sure she's drop-dead gorgeous, but she's cold and...well, manipulative.

I wouldn't want to be associated with the likes of her.  ;)

Oh and to answer your question, Scip - well I read somewhere on the Web about an Intermediate level of Auspex, I believe, it's called Spirit's Touch, where you can sense past events from the "aura" of inanimate objects, like a comb for example, perhaps who was its owner, or etc.

Actually, I want to keep calling you Valoris. Vongetta sounds more like a last name than a first, and male for that matter. Valoris sounds so much better. It makes me think of valor and scarlet, especially scarlet for some reason.

Everytime I see "VV", I'm reminded of that manipulative chick in Bloodlines. Sure she's drop-dead gorgeous, but she's cold and...well, manipulative.

And don't forget that purrrrfect voice. But yeah, the first time I played and heard her say Really? Would you be willing to do that... for me?, I was thinking, "You have no intentions of following through when I come back to collect." Sure enough, I come back and she's hopping around a pole, and not mine in the VIP area.

I am familiar with The Spirit's Touch, but it is not a Discipline of its own, it is a Level 3 Auspex power. It's not like in Redemption where you have to purchase 5 dots in a single power level; you either have it or you don't. It sounds to me like you have Auspex 3.

Brujeador?

Is that some kind of special clan term?

i'll just edit the bio then, and put it up as Level 3 Auspex.

Bloodywolf - Well, if I were creating this character bio out of WoD canon, then I'd be Toreador. But at the moment we're RPing in a more informal thread, and I like the term "Brujeador" since the combination of the two words lets people know easily that I'm a rather vicious, hot-tempered rebel who has an appreciation of the arts, especially poetry.

its interesting. i like your graphic thats nice and spot on. and your name im not so sure about Vongetta, but (and i hate to say this) cyril pointed otu to me that your last name bears resemblance to the common french surname 'valois', whereas from what i get from your profile your of english decent...

names are hard to make up. i used my true first name and my mothers mothers maiden name for mine  ;D.

Please, don't pay attention to what Cyril says about my name. It has an "R" in it, so it definitely is different from "valois".

I can't change it anymore because everyone knows me by this name, and I like how it sounds too.
