Shayara Laylah
« on: March 19, 2016, 02:01:47 PM »



    "I have been all over the world, served both sage and scum."
    "No more. "

    General Information:

    Name: Shayara Laylah
    • Shayara stands for versatility and spontaneity, where as Laylah has Arabic origins and stands for either darkness or night.
      Exact translation is born at night, or shall I say... reborn?
    Age: Around six centuries.
    Place of origin: Egypt
    Racial information: Vampire, 8th generation, daughter of Haqim, Sorcerer caste.
    Past affiliations: Children of Haqim, Followers of Set, Kindred of the East, European Camarilla
    • She has been an active Assamite since the beginning 15th century, was sent to infiltrate the Camarilla then discharged from the main clan under the circumstances. She rejoined the clan after the pact, though that was short lived and she left the clan during the Schism.
    • Following embrace, Shayara ventured back to Egypt where she worked with the Followers of Set. Though that does not necessarily place here in the shoes of a Setite, she was affiliated with them for several decades.
    • In an attempt to gain more information on the curse laid down by the Tremere, Shayara was sent as an undercover spy to retrieve something from a well-guarded domain.  It would take two decades before she could be trusted, and in the end she did retrieve the book, but at the price of her sire's death.
    • Given the Amr expected Camarilla investigations, Shayara was cast away from the Assamite fortress to seek her own path, she ended up in Japan where she had encountered and worked alongside a Eastern bloodline for about 50 years.
    Current affiliation: Baleful Lynx


    Physical Appearance:

    Apparent age: 28
    Ethnicity: Middle Eastern.
    Skin characteristics: Ebony, rough skin.
    Hair characteristics: Long, yaki straight or wavy swavy raven hair.
    Facial characteristics: Oval shaped face,  dark blue eyes
    Body characteristics: Well built mesomorph.
    Distinguishing features:
    • Having fought many battles, she had earned a fair share of scars, some failing to heal to this day. Most notorious is the one on her cheek that goes all the way down to her throat.
    • Due to the curse of darkness that affects the Assamite, she has a very dark skin color, some might say unnatural, though most of the times it's concealed by a layer of make up that lightens the shade/tone.
    • When wearing short sleeves, one could observe a substantial yin/yang tattoo on her shoulder.
    Height: 1.85 m or 6+ ft


    Personality Insight:

    Humanity/path: Walks on the Path of Blood
    Temperament: Melancholic/sanguine.
    Trivia stuff: Drinks alcohol, acknowledges God's existence but isn't religious.
    Stereotypes: She believes in individualism, everyone is worthy of a separate judgement.
    Code of honor/moral ethics:
    • Faithfully follow the teachings of Haqim..
    • Mortals are beneath the notice of vampires. Feed from them only when necessary.
    • Withstand the Beast's fury -- failing to master oneself results in lessened prowess.
    • Seek knowledge that may aid the Clan in its war on the cursed spawn of Caine.
    • Don't hesitate to learn, whether from the weak and the strong, the mistake of a fool and the success of a wise man, it is an opportunity which should not be lost.
    • Knowledge is a privilege, don't extend it to mortals undeserving of its power and do whatever must be done to keep our secret.
    Nature: Chameleon
    • Independent and self-reliant, you carefully study the behavior and mannerisms of everyone you come in contact with so you can pass yourself off as someone else later. You spend so much time altering your mannerisms and appearance that your own sire may not even recognize you. Spies, con artists, drag queens, and impostors best represent the Chameleon.
    Domeanor: Enigma
    • Your actions are bizarre, puzzling, and inexplicable to everyone except yourself. Your strangeness may be a residual effect from your Embrace, or the most effective way for you to carry out your work. To the rest of the world, however, your erratic actions suggest that you're eccentric if not completely crazy.

    What a relief to see that you meet the general toxicity level and will fit in perfectly with the other VWH rp players.

    Wade, fixed.

     Yeah, too bad shitposters all end up being banned.
    Now, if it would please you, stay out of my topic and make your clever remarks elsewhere.

    I don't like stereotypical characters. das' all.
    Besides, it's not like most of our shit is unbanned and we can actually do shit as sorcerers.

    oh and jah, assamite sorcerers did fight too. A lot.
