Basic courtesy: please don't attack me while I'm online, and I'll return the favor.*

Name: Severian (Nickname: Sev)
Birthdate: March 14, 1973
Turned: September 4, 1998, at age 25
Place of birth: Los Angeles, CA
Height: 6'4"
Weight and build: A lean and muscular 165.
Eyes: When well-fed: a brilliant blue which slowly fades to a light gray as his thirst grows.
Appearance: Favors black denim jeans, t-shirts, black boots and a black leather jacket. Hair - sandy/dirty/ash blond which falls several inches past his shoulders, usually worn loose, but worn pulled back in a tie when hunting. Skin complexion - still appears relatively tan from his time spent in the California sun.

“Forget what you think you know, most of it is wrong anyway.”

That's one of the best pieces of advice I've heard or been given. Like most people, I believed that vampires were a figment of imagination, and existed only in the mind of authors, TV scriptwriters, and movie makers. I know differently now, and my eyes have been opened to a world the “normals” don't know about.

The obvious question is: How did I become a vampire?

That story begins on September 4, 1998, when my view of reality changed forever.

I was a graduate student at UCLA, and I had ridden my motorcycle (a Harley) down to Hollywood Boulevard that Friday night just to take in the sights and sounds of the famous street. I passed by the mouth of an alley, and a pair of strong hands pulled me into the darker shadows between two buildings. I fought and did everything I could to escape, but it was futile. My attackers were vastly stronger, and I soon felt two sharp jolts of pain as a pair of fangs entered my neck. My consciousness faded with every passing moment. The fangs were eventually withdrawn, and a bloody wrist was pressed to my mouth. As I hovered somewhere between life and death, someone whispered in my ear the following: "Drink my young one. I have been watching you, and I have chosen you." As I was in a weakened state both physically and mentally from the blood-loss, I followed that command without any resistance. 

Most of what happened immediately after that is one big blur, and I still don't remember much from that night. What I will say is that it's been an interesting ride. Part of the reason is my sire, whoever they were, decided to turn me and then left me. Maybe they wanted to see how I'd do on my own. All things considered, I think I've done well. I've never been angst-ridden about being turned. I simply didn't have time for that nonsense back then, and I still don't. I had to adapt, and I did – no choice. If you're wondering, I prefer fresh human blood straight from the source, and I did go through a phase where I killed people indiscriminately. Now? I don't always kill, but I'm not above it either.

Of course, I've seen plenty of vampire movies, and I thought that a fiery end thanks to the sun was a given, - that or a stake. Then again, it was the movies, particularly 1922's release of Nosferatu, which introduced the idea that sunlight = death, and authors and movie makers ran with the idea. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a complete day-walker with full immunity. While I won't go up like a Roman candle on the 4th of July with my ashes scattering on the slightest breeze (which is just the magic of a special effects team), I usually try to avoid sunlight. With that said, it did take a few days for me to figure out that prolonged exposure to the direct rays of the sun will slowly sap my strength and energy and leave me lethargic. As a result, I'll become hungrier a lot faster in order to compensate. In addition, my eyes are much more photosensitive now, and I prefer to sleep during the day if I can, unless something requires me to be up during those hours. The whole coffin thing? That's just a stereotype.

Being a native Californian, there are times when you might catch me out on a night where the light of the moon is reflected on the ocean's waves. Becoming a vampire may have changed a lot of things, but I still love to surf.

Contrary to some popular portrayals, vampires don't always hang out in tapestry-lined castles, a glass of blood in hand, dressed in the most expensive tailored suits or something out of some prior century. That scene was never mine, and I prefer jeans and a t-shirt along with my leather jacket

Pheenyx 02/28/13 A perfectly scripted piece of parchment was delivered to the address of the male vampire. On the outside was a burgundy wax seal with a large 'P' molded onto it. Inside the quick note read:

Sev,

Trouble soon, you and I.

Phee

Selina Kyle 08/12/12 Scarlet bows at the warrior who delivered her the head she bountied."Thank you sir you did the realm a great honor in catching this vermin.Here is the reward that was offered." Scarlett hands him his reward and smiles as she takes the platter and tosses the head in an open fire."I know you will be back you always come back."
Crystal 08/03/12 *I bow* Thank you. Its a honor to receive congratulations from you
Michael Arch 07/23/12 He had not seen the vampire in what seemed a very long time. The Realm wasn't exactly the biggest place on Earth for the Immortal, and word had gotten around quick about his friend's growth in strength as well as his taking on the golden robes. Setting out to find this vampire, the Archangel finally found his thunderous blue eyes to catch those of an old friend.

Approaching him, the Immortal would nod his head with a sincere smile upon his face as he spoke.

"Congratulations, Severian, on your those golden robes as well as your growth in strength. Definitely well deserved my friend."

Shannon Taylor 02/17/12 Shannon smiled at the masculine voice that greeted her to the Realm. The corners of her lips turned into a sweet smile, her dark eyes shining at the figure before her. "Why thank you very much" Her eyes following him as he again disappeared into the shadows.
Phoebe Eriksen 01/03/12 "Thank you Sev!
Selina Kyle 01/01/12 Happy New year my friend

Selina Kyle 12/22/11 *the young witch turned when she heard a voice speak to her,to see a man suddenly appear before her.Jumping back a little her petty coat ruffled as she moved back letting out her southern voice*

"Oh Fiddle-dee-dee you startled me."*placing her hand upon her chest then smiled * "Why thank you kindly sir."
Sofia Johanneson 12/22/11 Watches the shadowy figure retreat after the pleasant welcome and thinks "Hmmm well that was nice. Quick.... but nice"

Phoebe Eriksen 05/17/10 Canter her head slightly to a angle as her lips curled into a soft smile. "Thank you Severian. I appreciate the kind thoughts." He had inquired something within the realm to her and meant to get back with him.
Mackenzie 12/14/09
Crystal 09/11/09 Lets honor those we lost on that day.
Mackenzie 06/30/09 Mackenzie felt poorly about the previous night, and bad for this individual. Wrong place, wrong time. It had happened to herself many times before. As promised, she dialed the second number on the slip of paper and waited as the sound of ringing met her ears followed by voicemail. Without hesitation, she left him a message. "Sev. Hello. It's Mackenzie I was calling to make the plans we had spoken about. Obviously... I was thinking sometime tomorrow perhaps? In the early evening? Let me know." Hanging up her phone quickly, she rolled her eyes at herself. Sometimes she just sounded ridiculous, and she knew it.
Crystal 06/17/09 *Walking up to you with a friendly smile.* "Hello, I am Crystal. May I welcome you to the Relm?" *I reach out my hand in greetings.* "I am from the Coven of Shadows and Light. If you need help, call upon me."
