Permissions Given In Reasonable Role-play:

Hair: Her hair is a dirty blond colour that is cut very short but her bangs are longer in the front. Her hair is smooth and silky to the touch and smells like fresh kiwi from the soap she uses. Sometimes she will style her hair but only on special occasions.

Eyes: Her eyes are a blackish-brown colour and are usually lined with eyeliner. Her eyeliner gives her eyes an intense look that intimidates most people when she gives them the right look. Her lashes are long and silkily looking giving her that bold look. Her eyes can be warm and welcoming. Many people have gotten lost in her unique eyes. They are almond-shaped which compliments her face.

Frame: The frame of her body is sleek but has a muscular look to it; showing people that she is a worthy fighter and takes pride in her skills. She works out almost every day keeping her body in shape. She practices her disciplines daily keeping her mind in a sheer focus. She is graceful in her movements like she is almost floating from one place to another. She is 5 feet and 9 inches tall.

Tattoos/Distinguishing Marks:

* She wears a ring that was given to her by her sire; Freya when she left the clan. The band has a golden-metallic look to it and what seems to be an obsidian stone set in the middle, melted within the stone is a symbol long lost to the human race. The symbol flickers back and forth from one colour to the next, legend has it that the ring holds an untold power from long ago.

* She also has a long horizontal scar across her stomach it has faded over time but is still visible. She doesn't see it as a blemish on her skin but a sign that she is a strong fighter to survive such an attack.


Brianna is a very strong-willed person with a bit of a temper but knows how to keep it in check. When she does let it loose, it’s for a very good reason. If you're six feet tall at the start of her temper, you’ll feel like two feet when she’s done with you. She is not afraid to put in her two cents even if it offends some people. Brianna will fiercely protect anything that is precious to her and shows extreme loyalty and trust to the few friends that she does trust.

Many people do not know just by looking at her that she has high intelligence and once you start talking to her it is quite clear that she, not just a brawler she has brains too. Higher than most people believe. When she does reveal the magical number she keeps so secret. She is clever and can come up with comprehensive actions and plans in the tightest situations. When problematic situations present themselves, Brianna becomes determined to solve them. She tries not to solve them with violence but with reasonable conversation; if that does not work and she feels her life is on the line or others that she cares about are in danger. She will kill without hesitation.

But beyond Brianna's tough appearance there is a softer side that many never see and are often shocked to see this, she is a caring person and kind person who takes the time to help others. Even if it is something that can be simply solved. She also takes the time to listen when others think that it is not worth their time. She is also has a lot of patience which is why she is slow to anger. She also likes to give helpful advice if people are willing to listen. She also has a lovely sense of humour, although sometimes it might become dark and crude.


Brianna doesn't remember much about her the early years of her life, bits and pieces have faded out of her memory, she recalls coming from a loving family. Her father was a famous swordsman and her mother was sent over from France. Highly common at the time and she was highly educated despite not being a noble. Brianna adored the wilderness, choosing to be with her father, rather than stuck inside with her mother. Against her mother's wishes, she took up horseback riding, how to defend herself, and how to wield a dirk by her father. She was loved by her father immensely, and he even told her that she was like a son to him. She kept these words close to her heart.
When she was fourteen her house and fields were set on fire. Her father stayed back so that he could give his wife and daughter a chance to escape, presumably died trying to save their lives. Rushed terrified through the forests in the middle of the night, she could hear 'them' catching up. Brianna's mother hid her, telling her to stay no matter what happened. She saw her mother raped, tortured and killed, she saw the face of the man that ordered her mother to undergo such torture and it was a face she would never forget. She cried for hours on end, losing the only two people that mattered to her. She buried her mother and, in the daylight, went back to look for her father but she couldn't find his body in the wreckage of her house. All she did find were his dirk and broken sword away from the house. Snatching the dirk and broken sword engraved with her clan's insignia. And never returned.
She wandered through the countryside trying to find those who had killed her parents for years; it was the only thing that kept her going through those hard and hurtful times. She had become strong in body and mind, barely remaining on the fringes of society. Once she did locate the man she sneaked into his tent; he had been drinking heavily for hours that night. After his drunken stagger to his bed, she slit his tent open after he passed out.   

She tried to slit his throat, there was a struggle and she was viciously stabbed in the belly by a long tail but succeeded in her goal. She fled the tent running as fast as her legs could carry her. Once she was out of earshot of them she leaned against the tree, slowly dying. Her eyes drifted closed even though she could hear someone approaching her and felt a sharp pain in her neck. She felt the blood draining more quickly out of her and thought she was dying faster... until a wrist was pressed against her lips and she began drinking blood. She did die... but somehow was brought back to life.
What Brianna did not know was that she was being watched the whole time, and it was only when Freya - a female vampire - took pity on her and decided that a human with so much determination in her should not die, that she was turned into the undead. At first, she was angry at the woman as she wanted to die and tried to escape her fate. But slowly she warmed up to her Sire, and accepted what she had become, a vampire. She learned a lot for she had two brothers and a sister, much older than Brianna. She was the youngest in the family now. Her one brother and one sister were already ancients, the other younger brother was only fifty years old when Brianna was embraced; her closest relationship outside of her mother.
For years she was trained hard in the ways of her own Kindred vampires. Her sire called her a guardian, a protector of life. She was given a ring that was once worn by another, but later died, and the ring was returned to Freya. It was said to hold an ancient power, one that hasn’t been unlocked for ages.
Brianna and her sire became very close and stayed that way even after her basic training was complete. For almost two hundred years. Then Brianna decided that she would go her own way, leaving her mentor and mother. Freya gave her a ring so as to remember where she came from and what she was taught. On that final day, she told Brianna why she had turned her; it was because she was pure in heart and soul.
Freya looked her face one last time as she knew it would be the last time she saw Brianna for quite some time. Brianna, brave and young wanted to see the world. Her sire understood. Brianna’s heart for adventure and danger couldn’t be denied. She left to start a journey of her own; an adventure that begins when she turns two-hundred. She left her sire and long before she ever became a spymaster for the Oligarchy. Good memories that she could never forget. She remembers her first adventure was a long hike.

She remembers mountains, big vast mountains that pierced the clouds they were so high and the snow she had never seen such a white of snow. There were caves and caverns within the mountains that a person could travel from one side of a mountain to the next. To Brianna to find such a place was sheer luck and here she remained for years exploring the caves and caverns and always in solitude. It was here she would test herself against the elements. Blizzards and whiteouts that ripped within the mountains, as well as the shortage of food in which,  tested her inner strength and her mind. Brianna ventured out many times within the few calm nights within the mountain to search for blood only this time she didn’t expect the company, dangerous company.
Dressing in all white and carrying a white bag with many jars and a brown coloured cloak in case she needed to hunt from above in the caves. She ventured out and looked up only to be shocked to see that stars and the moon and she knew it would be a good hunting night. She set off slowly travelling about two miles before she could smell blood. She crouched and wadded through the snow only to find a herd of rocky mountain goats, prey that was easy enough. Closing in and bursting forward, grabbing a ram and breaking its neck. An easy kill as she drank her fill before she started to fill the jars, only to hear a wolf howl. Greedy things she thought as she continued to fill up the jars. The creature howled again, it was distance but it was but wasn’t a wolf.
Thrill now turned into fear, she started filling the jars more quickly, slicing arteries with carelessness as she tried to fill at least three large jars. Another howl and more fear. Stubborn, Brianna wasn’t about to leave her prize. Finally full, she shoved them in her pack. An abrupt howl too close for comfort forced Brianna to look, her eyes became wide with fear. A feral creature appeared, much older than Brianna, then two more materialized. Looking back while running she knew she couldn’t stop and the creatures charged. Her heart dead for over two hundred years, beat in her chest, sprinting for her very life.
She could hear their claws thunder within the snow, there breathing hard and laboured as they gave chase; cursing as she hurried over the snow with extreme ease. The savages had a long way to catch up. But one stumble for Brianna, and it could ruin her lead on the things. Looking back and forth for a cave to escape she found none. The wind unexpectedly started to stir over the frozen tundra. It worried Brianna. If a whiteout erupted before she found safety she would surely get lost. The monsters were closing in, and she watched as a whiteout appear before her eyes. Frantic she saw an opening but she was doubtful she could make it before the storm hit. Seconds before the winds hit and then the snow she dashed upwards and slipped inside. Sighing in relief she travelled far into the cavern.
After that day she decided to become the ultimate hunter, and for over two hundred years she remained where she toyed with the beasts setting traps for them and playing cat and mouse games while learning their weakness and how to kill them. She became extremely fit and honed her skills as a shapeshifter, but after a while, she grew bored, and decided it was time to move. Leaving at the next dark moon, she left her little playground only to discover a new one. One that would be one day is forcefully taken away.

She travelled to a small village deep within the remote areas of the world. Where darkness fell quickly and the light seemed not to exist except for a mere eight hours a day. At first, the village did not accept Brianna. She remained on the outside of the village for almost five years. One day, she ventured into the village, not once did they shout or throw rocks. They merely let her pass through. Over time they accepted her and she got a small-time job making weapons in the local smith shop at night. She became close to a smiths son, at first, he was scared of her and would jump almost every time she moved. In the course of a year, they became good friends.
He was young and quite intelligent; he was also kind and considerate with his words and thoughts. Brianna started to get feelings for him but she kept them secret. For she knew she could never reveal what she was for no one would understand and if found she would be more than likely killed. But the feelings wouldn’t go away and although she was desperate she remained tight-lipped until the day he started to have feelings for Brianna almost four years later. At first, she passed it off as him being friendly until one night something happened she couldn’t expect.
She was working on an intricate piece of metal it was extremely hot within the building, the warmth on her skin felt so inviting that she wasn’t paying attention to his actions. She turned to place the metal in the water almost dropping it as she saw his upper part naked. His eyes met hers and she thought she felt a lump in her throat. He walked a few steps and stood before her before placing a hand on her face; she panicked and ran from him. She left him standing there confused, she didn’t return until the next night for she had to face him.
She walked and stood before him before she could speak and he said the words vampire, she stood in shock. Not knowing whether to run, or stay where she was standing. He turned to face her, he expressed the feelings for Brianna. He knew she wasn’t human. He noticed Brianna was always cold, and Brianna knew he was right, she stepped forward and kissed him for she was no longer afraid. Their love was kept a secret for many years until they decided to leave, for years they cared for each other. Until he asked the ultimate question. He wanted to become like her, at first she refused. Over time Brianna accepted the fact she loved him and she didn’t want him to die.
On a calm night she turned him, their love grew over time. For almost four hundred years she remained his wife and they even decided to sire a child together on their travels. Her family was nearly complete, but one day it would all be taken away. She lay with her husband as their son practiced his sword techniques, they were ambushed. Her son has killed first in front of her and her husband's eyes. Brianna’s enemies had finally caught up to after all these long years. She fought valiantly, but her son had fallen first then her husband. Sadly, they both didn’t make it through the fight; two casualties that he hit her with a hard blow emotionally and physically.
She cried over her lover's body and over their only son to carry on the bloodline, she made an altar for them and tearfully sang to the gods and goddess for a place in the afterlife. She felt lost, she understood more than one piece of her had died in a single night. Brianna could never feel her legacy through the bond they all shared, she tried to reach out but it only made it more clear that they were both actually gone. When the sun rose she took cover in a dark hole and slowly her mind began to succumb to insanity; she had lost control and she remained hidden for many years. Her own mother is unable to find her in this dark time of her life.

After she showed up in the United States, her psychological trauma somewhat fresh within her mind. She needed to save lives, to prevent what had happened to her own family. The 'voices' said in her head. She wandered the states; waiting for the perfect home. A place that she could settle. Where she could ultimately start over. The voices subsiding for an extremely long time. She wandered with a sense of purpose now. And it would be a long time before the Oligarchy (now fallen) would be created.

For a time she did have a new start but as of three years ago, she was fired as a spy by Kerr Galvin. The grief of her actions weighed heavy on her mind, a grave mistake. She knew Kerr would not forgive Brianna. Then rumours spread Kerr had died, for a time she was with Digital. But then the voices started again, only this time. It told him to answer the call to go back home. To see her mother, leaving this group to an unknown future.

Brianna recently returned to the city, ready and nervous to sire another child.

Awareness of Supernaturals: She is very aware of the supernatural's being alive for almost a thousand years.

Occupation/Job: Unemployed at the moment.

Interesting Facts / Quirks:

* She has been playing the violin since it first was invented. Owning an original Antonio Stradivarius violin, a prized possession. She loves to sing and has the most beautiful voice; she also composes her own lyrics and music for her violin.

* She also has a heart that is located on the right side of her chest instead of the left. It's a congenital birth defect that would have surely killed her at the age of forty. Her mother started to show signs but was killed and she doesn't know of this as she has never been to a doctor.

* In her whole vampire life-span she has made only two fledglings; one her husband and their son. Sadly, they were later killed by her enemies in a massive ambush. These deaths took a hard toll on Brianna and to this day she still feels responsible for their untimely deaths. She will not speak of this openly to just anyone and will be infuriated when it’s brought up at the wrong moment.

* She joined the Oligarchy when it began; it is still unknown as to how she joined the Oligarchy and no one will speak of it. Only a select few people know how she became a Spy in the Oligarchy including Halen (now dead). She has a lot of knowledge in her head from over the years.


* Practicing her vampire abilities to keep them sharp. As well as her violin in which she is a master at playing. She is also very talented at singing and if her mood is right you might catch her singing in her rare moments.

* She also practices shape-shifting ability and her mental vampire abilities daily. She also reads to increase her knowledge and she is always carrying an all-black dirk that is buckled to her belt on her left hip, hidden from view. She can wield it with lightning speed and deadly precision, close and afar with her telekinesis. It has a perfect balance for her hands, kept sharp at all times and has unusual resistance to heat.

Likes: Moonless nights, weaponry, books, all sorts of music, a good glass of blood, playing her violin, hanging out at Risk, taking long walks through the city, getting away from the city, The Brazilian Quarter and has a soft spot for children.

Dislikes: Sunlight, back-stabbers, people who think they know everything, people who think she is weak, ignorant people, people who are rude and show no respect.

Strength: She is a great fighter due to her vampire abilities and is trained in a wide variety of weapons and in the fighting arts. She is extremely quick and light on her feet; also a quick thinker in sticky situations. She is a great ally and will give counsel in times of need and will fight for those she knows have been wronged. She is also patient and a willing teacher and when it comes to the knowledge she takes pride in knowing she has that information to share. Many do not know that Brianna has a very high intelligence which is why her mental abilities are beyond the comprehension of most people.

Weakness/Flaw: Brianna can be brash, unbending and sarcastic at times. Sometimes this is not such a good thing, she also loses her temper some days due to stress or if she is not having a good day. But this occurrence is rare. She also has a tendency to protect those that are younger than her age, which many find annoying and rude. She also uses humour when she gets very defensive and not in a good way either.

Anything Else to Add:

* She is still bound by some of the old vampire ways such as talking first, fists second. If that doesn't work she will fight with a sword or her vampire abilities. Not guns. She sees that as cowards way out when settling a dispute between two vampires. However, times were changing and more young vampires carried guns. She has considered adding one to her personal effects, but she is undecided.

Vampire Abilities:

Telepathy: Brianna is a master of telepathy and well known for it. Either at receiving or transmitting information. She can probe one's mind undetected, hijack telepathic communications, create a telepathic static and protect the minds of herself or others. Even being able to manipulate and redirect signals between the brain and nerves. Achieving control over thoughts and feelings. Brianna can also utilize telepathy in combination with physical combat. Fusing her telepathic powers with her physical combat skills. Enabling her to read her opponent's plans as they make their move. Giving her a dangerous upper hand in a fight.

*Telekinesis: Brianna has been practicing telekinesis as long as telepathy. She can push and pull most objects with ease, prevent an object from being from moved, alter an object's directional course and alter an object's inner workings (ex. unlocking a door.) Brianna can also use telekinesis to transfer energy to and from objects. She can copy key cards, pull information off computers, create telekinetic security systems and store information or energy inside an object. A sort of a telekinesis/telepathic mix. She can also use telekinesis to augment her speed, strength, durability, reflexes and agility at a cost. She can even make any object automatically follow a person's home and lock onto its target or targets. Almost like a drone camera. Brianna is considered a master at this skill.

*Levitation: Brianna has only had this skill the last seven-hundred years roughly. It took painstaking practice to achieve the level of control needed for levitation. Stabilizing oneself was much more difficult than stabilizing an object like in telekinesis. She can now fly and glide with ease. She can also air walk giving Brianna greater maneuverability in her environment. And Brianna can even use levitation to leap large distances.

Shape-shifting: Brianna has been taught a skill to hide from prying eyes in the form of different animals. Similar to the skill Obfuscate. She uses her telepathy to make an illusion in the minds of her targets. A different deception of the mind, honing the skill over the years. She can be anything from a small rat to a large dog, anything she has seen she can shapeshift into. She CAN NOT physically shapeshift herself into animals. She had learned this skill from her Sire. She knows of very few who posse the skill let alone be able to learn it.

Dominate: No one would ever think Brianna is a master with dominate. Humble and secretive with the skill she uses it less than her other skills. Nevertheless, do not undermine her ability to wield dominate. She can be a fierce and clever opponent in the skill and she does not need to have eye contact either when used.
