Name: Ezekiel Von Carstein
Homeland: Wissenland, Empire
Age: 380 years, 6 Months and 2 weeks
Appearance: Standing at 6ft, tall and thin, handsome, with long pitch-black hair, tall and with a noble countenance, his eyes perfectly match his hair. His skin is unblemished and pale almost the colour of parchment. Ezekiel adorns a strange form of armour, created by forging and tampering with ancient magics, the armour neither constricts his movement, nor makes a sound when he moves, it fits tightly around his body, barely noticeable under his clothes. He wears many different clothes, depending on his current interests and desires. At the moment he prefers, over his strange armour, a dark, rich silk and linen clothing and a flowing, blood red cloak
Personality: Ezekiel likes humans, they are a source of great curiosity and entertainment to him. At times he will wander through imperial cities, observing their day to day lives, at others, he may kidnap several people, giving them curious combinations of tortures and pleasures, such as allowing them exquisite meals and bedding before informing them of the torturous poisons within their food and drink, Ezekiel will then observe the people, noting their screams and pleas, greatly enjoying the difference in reactions that he perceives. He may spend hours having polite conversations with imprisoned, tortures individuals.
Ezekiel is honorable, up to a point. He is also very vigilant, his years of experience making him (in his eyes at least) something of an expert in human emotions. He is friendly for the most part, but beneath the polite, friendly comments and fine trappings he adorns, a raging sadistic madman lurks, lashing out and causing suffering with horrible, twisted pleasure.
Background/History: Before his turning, Ezekiel was a lord of Wissenland, even then he enjoyed strange things, he threw lavish parties and practiced endlessly with blades, besting all opponents in the art of swordplay, Ezekiel was famous in his time for never being so much as scratched by an enemy blade, his ability to parry and strike almost supernatural. He studied endlessly in magic arts, uncovering forgotten secrets and forbidden arts, He wore the finest clothes and ate the most exotic and expensive foods.
Ezekiel kept few friends, each earning his favor through pleasing acts, his wife, Anastasia, stood at his side always, enjoying the same pleasures and skills as her husband.
Ezekiel was turned by one of his favorites, who walked up to him during a party and bit into his wrist. To all the onlookers, one of the count's favorites had just bitten the count, who had collapsed. The vampire was subsequently killed by a bodyguard. Ezekiel flew into a rage at the needless violence and tore the guard's head from his shoulders. This was when he discovered the first of his new vampiric abilities. He immediately turned his wife and remaining guards and favourites. After two years of violent and sadistic tyranny, Ezekiel and his followers were driven out of the city by angry, horrified citizens and witch hunters. Ezekiel eventually found himself within an old, abandoned manor, just outside the city of Sylvania, where he set up a home. It was then that he began his curiosity with humans, striking out and stealing people from their homes, subjecting them to his strange tortures. Over time, Ezekiel came upon strange things, first was a talisman, which seemed to draw shadows around him when danger approached, making him even harder to leave a telling blow upon. The other, was a sword, it was a thick bladed weapon, akin to a huge rapier, it could slide effortlessly through armour and was strong enough to withstand the heaviest and strongest blows.
