    Appearance
    Hair: Damien has thick, luxurious brown hair cut into a modern, textured style. The top is on the longer side, with shorter lengths on the sides. The hair is tapered in the back to the natural neckline. Due to the thickness of the strands, it tends to have a moderate amount of volume. More often than not his hair is worn without product, unless he has some kind of meeting. At special events, it is often styled into a side part or slicked back completely with pomade or gel. He always wears it clear of his eyes.
    Eyes: Set deep under a heavy brow structure, his eyes give off the general impression of heaviness. There is an impression of seriousness and distance there, as if he lacked the ability to relate to humanity. Damien has blue-grey eyes, like unpolished steel, which were a much dimmer shade in his human life. They are lined with fine black lashes.
     
    Skin: Fair, though with an undertone which gives the impression he used to tan well. It is dotted with scars and marks of battle.
    Face: Rectangular with a pointed prominent nose and chin. His jawline is quite angled due to the length of his face, creating a sharp, well defined profile. His jaw is set forward which creates the impression that his face is longer than it actually is. His forehead is on the large side of average which makes his eyes seem smaller, accompanied by a square hairline. It is typically hidden by his hair.
    Nose: Just shy of awkwardly long. The tip has a very slight hook to it and the nostrils have an average flare, though seem high due to the length.
    Mouth: Pouty, wide lips that are on the thin side of average, but well shaped and defined. They sit above a jaw that is slightly too forward. It gives the onlooker the impression that he is not amused, even in neutral situations.
    Glasses or Contacts?: No
    Frame: 5' 11'' (180.5 cm), 175 lbs. (65.9 Kg). Damien looks healthy; being high nobility for the human years has given him an attractive advantage. Wide, sloping shoulders with smaller, square hips. An average athletic build without intense muscular definition. His weight is evenly distributed throughout his frame. While he would be considered him attractive, there is the impression that he had not reached the peak of his beauty when he was claimed. He appears young at first glance, but there is something much older about his aura.
    Hands: Prominent, square knuckles and strong structures with calloused skin.
    Tattoos: None
    Piercings: None
    Distinguishing Marks:
    • Forehead, left - Light pink half-circle scar
    • Forearms - Slashes and old scratches from running and lack of protective armor
    • Lower legs - Slashes and old scratches from running and lack of protective armor
    • Ribcage - Deeper scars due to armor gaps
    • Chest/Back - Occasional scar from an impact wound on his chest and back.
    • Misc. marks include: stab wounds, slashes, blunt impacts with various weapons

    To bed: The occasional pair of undershorts, if anything at all
    To work: Creased slacks or nice denim with plain button up shirts with open collar, casual jackets and dress shoes.
    To an interview: Business casual or business formal - creased slacks fitted appropriately with plain button up shirts, closed collar, pressed jackets that worn closed, dress shoes
    On a date: Nice slacks with a cashmere sweater or button up. Dress shoes
    Daily accessories: A watch on his left wrist, usually black steel with large face.
    Special accessories: A necklace with Lucretia's crest on it. No longer wears this, and now keeps this crest in his top drawer.


    Character

    History in brief:
    Guillaume deToulouse was born the fourth child of Michel and Marie deToulouse. His family was high nobility, his uncle being the duke of the region of Toulouse in what is now southern France. While Guillaume’s father was last in line for the throne, the family did have the fortune of having money.

    While growing up, Guillaume showed extraordinary interest in Christianity and would often read passages from the Bible aloud to the rest of his family. His uncle, the famous and influential Raymond deToulouse, took notice of the boy’s studies and suggested to his brother, Guillaume’s father, that the boy should be sent off to a monastery to study and become a clergyman. And so, at the age of twelve, the boy left home for an abbot in the nearby region of Tarn.

    Not long after, however, the pope of the time, Clermont, made a declaration to take back the Holy Lands from the invading Muslims. Raymond deToulouse, being a devout Christian and a supporter of the ideas of the Pope, gathered his own sizeable army of crusaders, including his fifteen year old nephew Guillaume, and headed out to Constantinople, or modern day Istanbul, Turkey. For four years, Guillaume fought at his uncle’s side and killed many men in the name of God.

    In 1101, when Guillaume was on the verge of his twentieth birthday, Guillaume was felled in battle and nearly killed. When he awoke, he found himself in a luxurious tent of a beautiful woman who took care of him for a few days. But Guillaume was never returned to full health. This woman, Lucretia, kept Guillaume as a slave for his blood and his sex, breaking his mind and nearly killing him. About three weeks or so after he was found on the battlefield, Lucretia claimed Guillaume as a fledgling. She is responsible for renaming him Damien.

    Damien was kept nearly secluded from the rest of Lucretia’s encampment – a small gathering of vampires and a few other immortals. He was reliant solely upon her and kept as her pet, her intentions for him never clear. He hated her but slowly became accustomed to laying next to her at night. As the years passed, he developed feelings for the woman and became defensive over her, jealous of the men she bedded. It appears as if she as well had feelings for her fledgling.

    Nearly twelve years or so after his fledgling, Lucretia announced their union. While the union was in no way the conventional sense, Damien felt himself in love with her. Years later, Damien would understand the politics of their union – Damien was, after all, quite skilled as a soldier, as well as a talented linguist and strategic captain of the regime that Lucretia ran. He was also a man in a world where Lucretia was still, though extremely old, a woman.

    The years passed and the two grew closer and farther apart with the continuance of time. In 1353, Damien successfully fledged his first son, Pierre duSang, despite Lucretia’s desires not to. Damien changed his name to Damien the same night that he fledged his son. Lucretia said nothing.


    Still time passed and the couple grew as couples do, closer and farther, ebbing and flowing in their feelings. Pierre grew close to the couple and proved to be a terrific addition to the growing army. The younger remained the couple’s personal confidante, though he remained closer to his direct Sire, rather than Lucretia.

    The army wandered all around the Middle East and Europe during the centuries after Damien’s fledging in order to remain unseen and unnoticed by the humans, who clearly outnumbered them. While Lucretia wanted a utopia of sorts for immortals, Damien knew the idea to be foolish, but could not oppose his Sire or convince her otherwise. In 1641, the army, twenty-one in number, was captured by a radical group of humans who were the equivalent of witch hunters in southern Germany. Lucretia, along with the majority of her lineage, was burned at the stake in front of Damien. In a last ditch effort to escape, Damien broke through his binds and killed a majority of the humans, freeing Pierre in his fury. The two ran off into the night.

    Damien and Pierre wandered for a few years, Damien in a state of denial and grief that was unreachable even to Pierre. In 1649, the pair lived in Paris, meeting a mirroring pair of vampires who had suffered a familiar fate, Odessa Turkevich and Nadia Dominik. After a brief time living with the women, the pair left to wander Europe. Eventually the pair split up in the late 1600’s, needing space. Damien went to ground, Pierre continuing his wandering around Europe until the pair met up in the 1870’s again. From there, they remained together, moving around from big city to city in order to remain anonymous - Montreal, Quebec, New York, Detroit, Portland, Seattle, etc -  Pierre found the nameless city in the late 1990’s, and the two moved into it, feeling it the perfect placement for such a utopia.

    Sire: Known to her fledglings as Lucretia, she was destroyed by exposure to fire by humans on the night of November 29, 1641 (when Damien was 541 years old) in southwest Germany. Her relationship with Damien is extremely complicated. Lucretia had found young Guillaume deToulouse severely injured on the battlefield in modern-day Turkey, and brought him back to a functioning health. He remained as her pet for nearly three weeks before she decided to claim him as a vampire.

    In the time that he spent with her as a human, Lucretia robbed him of his virginity, faith, and understanding of the way the world worked. His feelings for her in the beginning were strictly of hatred and disgust, but she was smart about the way that she fledged him. He was cut off from all contact expect for her and was comforted as he died. She became the one thing that he held onto for sanity and life. Their marriage in later years was mostly political, though there was the echo of love from Lucretia. His feeling for her remained mainly protective and caring, though loving is still arguable. They relied on each other for understanding, emotional and sexual release, and political power. Damien believes to this day that he was madly in love with her because of this, though he secretly doubts that she felt the same way. This is something that he doesn’t even admit to himself many days.


    Hobby/Hobbies: One will often find Damien on duty. Often times he is thinking about Lucretia, or working some plan out in his mind. He has the habit of pondering the meaning of his existence. From time to time, Damien enjoys penetrating throngs of people for no purpose whatsoever and blending in. He tends to lose himself in memory often.

    Likes: Thinking and remembering, governing, planning, respect, reading, learning new languages, securing his legacy, being in control, blood, dancing (believe it or not).

    Dislikes: Disobedience, disruptions to his plans, money, attention, eternity, waiting, being rushed, killing without purpose, technology.
