Date of Birth: September 2, 1691

When performing: Lots of leather, distressed jeans with punk embellishments.
[ ]


Intelligence Level: Sharp.  Quick learner.
Education: Apprenticeships at various tailors in his human years.  Fluent in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian.  He can understand French but speaks very little of it, with a heavy Spanish/Portuguese accent.  Malakai can also understand German and some Korean.

Current Occupation: Custom makes a wide variety of clothing from period pieces to wedding dresses and even fetish things.  He doesn’t usually turn down a project. 
Salary: More than enough, though he has a great deal invested in stocks, properties, etc.
Previous Occupations:[/color] Tailor
Socioeconomic Level as a human: Merchant class
Socioeconomic Level now: Quite wealthy

Artistically: fashion designing, clothing making.  Musically: playing the piano, singing.  He has above average strength for his age.

Below average speed for his age. Telepathic skills aren’t the sharpest.  He can send and receive messages, though doing so for an extended period of time is taxing.

Hobbies:  Mal is the lead singer of an alternative metal/grunge band To Ashes, and plays occasionally at The White Rabbit.
Pastimes: Altering clothing, reading anything he can get his hands on, throwing get-togethers with the band at his place (especially during a game)

Observable Behavior

Speech Patterns: He has a deep soothing voice.
Words/Slang/Jargon: If he uses any slang it's exclusively to be funny. 
Eye Contact: Gentle, non threatening.
Gait: Long, casual strides.
Posture: Confident and open.
Mannerisms, Gestures, Quirks or Eccentricities: Seems to know all the lyrics to an absurd number of songs.  Around friends and ambient music (in a store, for instance) he will sing along (and sometimes dramatically serenade).  Will hum along at the very least.

Likes & Dislikes
Sports: Football (Soccer)
Food & Drinks: Mal loves cooking and entertaining (despite having to throw everything up)
Music: lots
Movies & TV shows: Cooking shows, Project Runway
Books & Magazines: Fashion/Clothing magazines

Pet Peeves: people who are wasteful, waiting in line, clutter
Major Hangups: dwelling on immortality, vampires who feed in excess

Beliefs and Religion
Attitude to religion: Though both of his parents were firm believers in God, in his later years Malakai was not as enthusiastic.  He never liked politics and could see that the church had acted as more of a political institution than anything else.  Malakai kept his feelings regarding his own personal beliefs largely to himself for fear of ridicule from his father and his older brother.
Morality/Ethics: He follows the rules, but isn’t a stickler about things that don’t really matter.

Awareness of Supernaturals:  vampires, werewolves, demons, shifters, anything else just smells funny


Mal is a fun guy to hang around with because he seems like he could take just about anything.  Publicly, he is the intimidating quiet one, while deep down he really is just a teddy bear.  Although he tends to trust people too easily, he isn't utterly naive when it comes to choosing friends.  However small his inner circle may be, he has a habit of giving new faces the benefit of the doubt before wrongly judging them. 

Strongest positive personality trait:  Benevolance
Strongest negative personality trait:  Perfectionism

  • Super-loyal with the drive to defend until death.  Any insult to a friend is a personal insult to him.  Will never betray a friend or someone who has done him a favor.

  • Creative and talented.
  • Gentle, kind and compassionate, a lover of natural beauty.

  • He likes to keep his apartment clean, and even though he could afford a maid service, he prefers to tidy-up himself.  Not that he would let anyone know how much dusting he actually does...

History and Relationships

Human Relationships:
Mother: Maria, passed away during childbirth when he was two years old.
Father: Miles Pryce, an important tailor with a thriving business.
Birth Order: The second son.  Because of this, he didn’t have the pressure of carrying on the family business.  His father still taught him the trade, though not with as much fervor as he taught his firstborn.
Siblings: Michael (oldest): Mal never really liked him and did his best to stay away.
Matthew (youngest): Mal had an okay relationship with him but didn’t go out of his way to socialize.
Other Relatives: His father married Isabel Daguiar shortly after the death of his mother.  Mal became very close to his stepmother.  He quickly became fluent in her native tongue.

Current Relationships:
Sire: Blesilla Aconia
Relationship status: Single
Current family: Considers his friends/band mates his family.
Best Friend(s): Jerry, Zach, Thor & Kim.  No, he doesn’t pick favorites.
Other Friend(s): Quinn
Other notable relationships: Sonya, Damien
Enemies: none to speak of

Relationship Skills: Very attentive and affectionate, excellent listener.  Aside from being disinterested in sex, he does really enjoy kissing and cuddling.  In the past, he has been known to be quick to love, though he will generally keep it to himself unless the other person says something first.  He is easily guilty, though he will put on a tough-guy front when it comes to the whole breaking up thing.

Sexual Background:  Mal had his first homosexual experience when he was fifteen years old with a childhood friend.  It isn't something he really talks about in great detail now, but the event made him question more about his own beliefs and made him feel a great deal of confusion.  He was constantly worrying that someone would discover what happened through word of mouth or otherwise.  Because of this Malakai distanced himself from his family (except his stepmother).  He has had a few lackluster sexual relationships with women in the years after, and never really enjoyed them.  Always keeping the experience with his childhood friend in the back of his mind, he had a few secretive relationships with other men later in life that were very romantic, affectionate, and only lightly sexual.  It would take him until modern times to come to the conclusion that he was asexual, mostly because there wasn’t a word for it back then.

Human Years: 
When he turned eighteen, he traveled to France, then Italy, to learn different techniques and to get away from his family for a while.  Eventually, he settled in Portugal where he kept a small tailoring business, giving him enough to live off of independent of his father.  He always sent letters back and forth to his stepmother.  While he was in Portugal, his stepmother passed away and he completely lost touch with his family (since Isabel was his only attachment).

Fledgling Years:
Eventually, he developed a close relationship with one of his clients, Blesilla Aconia, who was impressed with his skill.  She was from an old and powerful family and introduced him to the underground world of vampires.  As a result, Malakai gained an entirely new clientele, becoming the family's personal tailor (and for some of their noble connections as well).  It was Blesilla's intention, unbeknownst to Malakai, to seduce him.  She hoped that feedings would facilitate an attraction but they merely made him more affectionate and clingy.  He became deeply invested in the idea of being sired, excited by the possibilities of immortality.  The Aconia family forbade this, but Blesilla sired him anyway.  She kept him a secret for a few weeks, he eventually succumbed to her advances (blood bond overwhelming him).  This event put a strain on their relationship.  When he was eventually discovered, Malakai was sent away as punishment (though he went willingly) and matched with a family friend leaving for America who was meant to mentor the young fledge.

Recent History:
Mal started a band with a group of close friends:  Jeremiah and Zachariah Peterson (vampires, lead and bass guitar respectively),  Thor (human, drums), and Kim (Smoke Demon, keyboard/synth/anything else).  It's a casual thing, but Mal takes it pretty seriously sometimes.
