Per angusta in augusta : Through difficulties to great things
Benjamen James Samson


Nickname: Ben

Age Appearance: 19
Birthday: 14 January 1986
Gender: Male

Vampire (Fledgling)
Sires: Arles Bren & Kerr Galvin
 Fledgling Connections: [via Kerr] Ichabod Conners, [via Arles] Shane Ripley
Domicile(s): 1710 Patterson Cove Lane - North West District
Vehicle: Turquoise 1967 Chevrolet Impala

Permissions Given in reasonable Roleplay:
(Yes = you don't have to ask before acting in RP, No = you ask first)
Feeding: Yes
Wounding/Cursing: Yes
Killing: No
Hair: Sandy, mousy blonde/brown, has golden blonde highlights. He keeps it short all over, with the front flicked up a little.
Eyes: Very pale blue when mortal, they became a very supernatural iridescent white blue in his undead state. They are his winning feature.
Frame: 5'9" in height, masculine build but not overly muscular
Tattoos/Distinguishing Marks: His lips remain tinged pink, even in death.
Personality: Confident and analytical to the point that he over-analyses things.  Watchful, observant, perceptive, glib, intense, mature, most of the time he's sensible but to 'break free' he'll do something spontaneous. He's fascinated with vampire lore and 'classic' myths about them and can talk extensively on the subject should someone be willing to listen. Blunt, forward, doesn't shy from confrontation, doesn't see the silver lining to things, isolates himself.  Swings grandly between self-love to self-loathing.

Representational Music:
(note: lyrics are not exact, the 'feel' of the song is representational)
  • Time Is Running Out - Muse
  • Signs of Love - Moby
  • Breaking Down - Florence + the Machine

Human History: Mundane. He had a family (parents, one younger brother, Michael) that were good until the crunch came, studied hard, left home at 16 despite preparing for college and never finished his final year of high school because his parents told him either change his sexuality or get out.  He left. Got a dead-end job so he could continue living at a sharehouse and pay the bills until he found something more suitable. He only left the sharehouse when the Oligarchy forced him to be a pet.
Vampire History: He's always wanted to be a vampire, so when he found out they were real, he approached the first one he saw (Kerr) and asked to be sired. Rejected, he continued to offer his blood to Kerr, enchanted with being friends with a vampire before he and Kerr had a real relationship. Bonding quite strongly in 6 days due to sharing a lot of personal information very quickly, Ben and Kerr were part of a trial that saw them separated, and had Ben in the care of the Oligarch for Vampires, Declan, who thought he was appealing.  Declan performed a ritual at the Oligarchy headquarters that from this point onward, Ben can no longer remember the next three years once Jack came into being.  So far all he remembers is waking up in the desert in Kerr's arms and finding out he's a vampire, sired by Kerr.  His lookalike, Jack, makes him extremely uncomfortable so when Kerr started a romantic relationship with Jack, Ben found the first excuse offered to him to leave - which was Kerr kissing him.  On a whim, he ended up in NY city, ending up with a rather successful modelling career under a very controlling manager who was also an abusive and manipulative Ancient.  He's fled that scene because Kerr came to check on him, and is now back in the city with Kerr.  He felt like he wouldn't be able to live up to Kerr's standards, so suggested Ichabod as another fledgling for Kerr when the opportunity came.  In the two and a half years that Ichabod has been his blood brother, he has tried his best to become friends with him but it always falls flat.  It seems they are unable to remain civil with one another, thanks to Ben's attempts at friendliness being seen as ingenuine, and his sharp tongue of frustration considered his 'true' personality, by Ichabod.
Occupation/Job: Part-time Model

Notable Friendships: Murphy Hilton, Daniel (from NY, but is no longer in touch)

Interesting Facts / Quirks: He tends to stare rather intensely at people when he's interacting with them. As a mortal he blushed easily and obviously, his cheeks and neck used to go an obvious pink colour when embarrassed or self-conscious, but now they tinge pink and the light colouring might be missed (especially if he hasn't fed for a while). He doesn't shy from confrontation or any uncomfortable conversations, thanks to his time in NY.
Hobby/Hobbies: Spends a lot of time in the Oligarchy library looking up whatever takes his fancy (usually vampire related, but not always), collects vampire paraphernalia, constantly testing his skills to see if he can enhance his vampiric mental powers.
Likes: Seeing a new connection that he didn't see before - tying loose ends, being trusted/accepted at face value

Dislikes: Missing out on information, explaining his motivations when he doesn't want to, being misled by someone he trusts, having the worst assumed of him.
Strength: He thinks about things that he observes and can imagine different scenarios - both tactical and emotional. Excellent mind communication skills - he is naturally attuned to it.
Weakness/Flaw: He analyses way too much and draws all sorts of conclusions that should not be made.
