Vampiric Form ⊱⊰ Only the most superficial of changes, as her skin turns silver-white, her hands form talons, and blackened feathers sprout around her wrists, ankles, and the back of her neck. Personality Alignment ⊱⊰ Primary: Neutral Evil ⊱⊰ Secondary: Chaotic Evil At her core, Viktoriya is out for herself - plain and simple. She cares little for kindness, charity, or goodwill, and save an indulgent preference for chaos and disarray over the firm hand of law and order, has little interest in the wider scope of things. Jungian Archetype ⊱⊰ The Outlaw Devoted to her ideals of freedom, rebellion, and taking what one wishes, Viktoriya aligns squarely with the literary archetype of the outlaw. Religion Viktoriya follows an esoteric belief that lies somewhere between a religion and a collection of loose superstitions; one inherited from her original coven in the Walds. Life Story BIRTH ⊱ ⊰ Born to a maidservant of a local baron in the depths of the Waldmark forests, Viktoriya was raised for the first few years of her life with the firm conviction that she was the daughter, if illegitimate, of the patriarch, and rightfully deserved to be raised as a noble scion alongside her supposed half-siblings. Of course, this view that her mother held firm to was rather less popular with her employers, particularly given her Vladno heritage - when her claim inevitably came to the attention of the household, she was unceremoniously removed from both her position and the servants’ quarters, cast into the street. EARLY LIFE ⊱ ⊰ Still believing herself to rightfully deserve a noble upbringing, Viktoriya began to self-educate via books - frequently stolen from nearby houses, as her unemployed mother made little effort to meaningfully care for her, swinging between rampant alcoholism and sheer poverty as the charity of strangers permitted In stark contrast to her sole parental figure, Viktoriya self-styled in an almost aristocratic fashion; and while much of what she had in her possession was stolen, such a minor detail could not stop her from indulging in her delusions of grandeur and nobility. Her mother’s degrading condition ultimately led to her demise, and with it, the death of any trace of order in her life. Untethered from the last of her moral obligations, she joined up with a few other local youths in a small and ultimately rather poorly planned gang. A short spree of violent crime quickly forced the fledgling criminals to seek a hideout away from the city; and they found one, in the form of an old fort well into the forests of the walds. Unfortunately, it played host to a coven of von Kërle, and the youths were butchered. The survivors, few and far between, were turned to join the ranks. With all the worst of her natures amplified, she found herself well suited to life amongst the coven. Several decades of violence and destruction passed, taking the time to learn a host of different fields beyond her existing experience in combat, including the construction and maintenance of a clockwork weapon. LATER LIFE ⊱ ⊰ Hunting travellers and vagrants, Viktoriya began to form her own coven, turning those who showed an aptitude for battle and bloodshed. As their numbers grew, she ultimately succeeded in turning the daughter of one of the more isolated aristocratic families in the region, with whom she grew close. Far from prissy and difficult, she proved to have every bit a match for Viktoriya’s bloodthirst, and quite a superstitious streak. Whether invented as she went or part of some ancient tradition of the deep woods, the coven was quickly indoctrinated into her beliefs, their leader included. Such a destructive nature did not lend itself to an indefinite lifespan for the group, and though they held through many a skirmish with the nearby baron’s levies, they ultimately faltered in a final assault after years of hunting and tormenting the local populace. Scattered and broken, they went their separate ways - and for Viktoriya, this meant Regalia, in search of richer pickings.
