"Sometimes I wonder… With as much crap as we do to ourselves, maybe it was about time we were given a wake up call."
Name: Elena Pierce
Age: 17 years old
FC: India Eisley
Occupation: High school Student
Affiliation: The Tivaci Pack and the Hawthorne Family
Species: Werewolf (Untriggered)
Elena couldn’t recall a time when her family was happy. Between her alcoholic father, her addict mother and her brother who wanted nothing to do with them, there was no room for happiness in her life. She never knew why her parents had so many problems, but she knew that their problems were forced to be hers as well. She wasn’t allowed to be a kid. She had to take care of herself; make her own dinner, do her laundry, pick her parents up when they were at their lowest. As far as Elena was concerned, she raised herself.
While her parents ignored her to deal with themselves, she locked herself in her room to retreat into the worlds of her books. If they didn’t care about her, she wouldn’t care about them either. She had to look out for herself. Her brother would come around, but it was never for long. As much as she wanted to depend on him back then, she knew that she couldn’t. It wasn’t until the day that her father died that everything changed for Elena. One moment, her teachers were sitting her down to tell her that her father had passed and the next she was at her brother’s front door, abandoned there by their mother.
It was that day that all the anger and resentment she had pushed away to deal with her situation began to rise to the surface. She hated her parents and what they had put her through as a kid. She hated that she had to make excuses and pick up the broken pieces when they weren’t adult enough to do it themselves. She tried so hard to push Chris away, afraid that he’d end up being just like their parents. He pleasantly surprised her, however. The immature big brother she had expected him to be was washed away by a big brother who actually cared about her and her well being. He became the only person she would open up to and the only person who had been willing to take care of her instead of it being the other way around.

"I’ve been running with the wolves with the wolves since I was a kid."
Name: Elijah Pierce
FC: Ian Somerhalder
Occupation: Bartender at Black Moon Bar
Affiliation: Hawthorne and The Tivaci Pack
Had you told Elijah three years ago that he would be raising his little sister in his mother’s absence, he would have laughed in your face. As fate would have it, however, that was exactly how things played out. Elijah had never had a good childhood. His parents certainly weren’t in the running for any “parents of the year” awards and as far as he was concerned, he basically raised himself. On the good days, his father was passed out drunk in the living room and his mother was out doing whatever she could to make money. On the bad…let’s just say Elijah had his fair share of learning to defend himself. It wasn’t until he turned 16 that he packed up and left for his grandparents, right after his little sister, Elena, was born.
After moving out of his parents home, Elijah lived a carefree lifestyle. He had a job he liked, he slept with anyone that he liked and he had no responsibilities, just liked he wanted. However, his reckless lifestyle caught up with him the day he got in a bar brawl. He had been in many before, but this was different. An anger inside of him snapped and the next thing he knew, he slammed the man a little too hard on the concrete. Police ruled it self defense, but it opened an entirely new world for him. After he questioned his father about it, he learned that his grandparents had been wolves as well, and their parents before him. At first he thought his alcoholic father was crazy, but the night he first transitioned changed his perspective quickly. He was thankful enough to find the Tivaci after a lot of research and they happily took him and showed him the ropes.
It seemed that Elijah was once again allowed to live life his way with his wolfy-visits in check, but his plans were short lived with the news that his father had finally hit the bottle one too many times and was found dead in his favorite chair. With him gone, his mother and sister had no real way of supporting themselves. The only solution his mother saw fit was to send her daughter off to live with him, leaving her, a bag of her clothes, and a note at his doorstep while she disappeared without a trace. Elijah was forced to change up his carefree lifestyle very quickly to accommodate his little twelve year old sister to take care of her to the best of his abilities. While at first he resented the idea, he realized that she needed him and that maybe he needed her in his life too. Years later, and the two are thick as thieves and Elijah would do anything to make sure that she’s safe and taken care of, even if it means putting himself at risk.

"Pretty faces can be dangerous too."
Name: Franchesca “Frankie” Lee
FC: Vanessa Hudgens
Occupation: Model/Blood Bag
Beauty has always been a weapon for Frankie. She learned from a young age that a pretty face could get you out of a lot of trouble if you had the brains to back it up. Frankie was born in raised in the slums of New York. She has lived in more seedy places than she likes to admit and remembers living in many homes that weren’t her own. Her mother was a prostitute, selling her body to support her daughter and her education. Unlike many of the prostitutes that Frankie encountered in her childhood, her mother was one of the better. She didn’t do drugs and she tried to keep her dignity even though many of her customers liked to try and strip it away. Every time she tried to go on a more legitimate path, she would always wind up in the body selling market again. Frankie never got her answers when she asked her mother why she continued going back to prostitution. She knew that she never would.
Growing up in the world that she did, Frankie learned how to be street smart. To survive, you had to have your wits and Frankie always kept her’s on full blast. As she got older, she learned from her mother and the other prostitutes she liked to hang with that her beauty was more than just a display. It was a tool, a weapon. Frankie learned how to use her’s well. Playing the innocent act when she was in trouble was easy enough, but soon she moved to more big time goals. After she graduated from school, she got a job working in a bar, where her patrons always flirted and tipped her extra when she batted her eyelashes and smiled. One night in particular would prove to change her life forever.
A woman who claimed to be an agent approached her and offered her the chance to get a few gigs posing in photo shoots for designers and photographers all over the city. Frankie jumped at the chance. Her new career as a model proved to be a lot more fortuitous than she hoped. Money rolled in, and eventually she was able to move she and her mother out of their shabby home in the projects to something more high class in Manhattan. Life for Frankie was going well until her mother fell ill. The medical bills began pouring in and Frankie’s large pay checks were barely enough to make ends meet. However, a photographer she worked with in the past referred her to a job at the Midnight Room under the Torres family, with promise of good pay and benefits. A “Blood Bag” they called it. Some vampires hated the idea of feeding from hospital bags and wanted something more warm and fresh. She was to be their new supply. Though she never wanted to get mixed up in the supernatural community, she didn’t have much of a choice. She just had to let a few vampires bite into her every once in awhile. Still, she knows how dangerous this life can be and always keeps on her toes, with a smile on her face and stake behind her back in case things get messy.

"You hear that? That small hum, it’s barely there. A lot of people don’t hear it, because they don’t bother to listen. The world is full of music and art. You just have to know where to look."
Name: James Carrow
Age: 43 years old (Physically 26)
FC: Kit Harington
A love that is unrequited makes the heart grow cold. James had learned this lesson well in the early years of his life. He was born in New York City, New York in 1971 into a time of struggle, pain and beauty. From an early age, he had been exposed to the beauty of the arts and music. His mother had been an aspiring song writer when she met James’ father and fell in love. His mother always loved to romanticize the relationship she and his father had, but James learned the truth behind her haze of stories and fairy tales. His father was an alcoholic who drove his car off the road and left his wife and unborn child to fend for themselves. James didn’t particularly mind growing up without his father. Most of his childhood was spent with his mother and her band in the slums of Alphabet City. Everything that he learned about music was learned from attending her many rehearsals and spending time with the musicians that were in the same financial situations that they were in.They were all struggling but they felt like they had the world in their hands when they had their music. That was a feeling James kept with him as he got older.
As much as his mother tried to discourage him from taking up music as a career option -seeing as her’s had landed her in a life of poverty- James was optimistic for his burgeoning career. He did everything he could to get his name out, from small time gigs and birthday parties to sending a recording of his songs to music companies. It took years and many odd jobs to make ends meet before he finally got his foot in the door with a young producer named Emily. Being the romantic that he was, he thought it was love at first sight. The girl could make him laugh simply by looking at him and before he knew it, she had become is muse. What James failed to realize that while he was falling in love, she was doing just the opposite. All Emily sought to do was use him to brandish her own career. She took his songs and claimed them as her own before selling them off to whoever would by them and get her the promotion she needed. She didn’t even spare him a goodbye as she sauntered out of his life. With no career and the love of his life having all but smashed his heart to pieces, James gave up the will to live and planned to take his own life. However, before he could jump from the window of his apartment, a man below saw him. A man whose name was simply Carter. He took pity on the young James and lamented his story with his own heartbreak. In the end, Carter revealed that he was a vampire and by drinking his blood and giving his life, James would go on to do extraordinary things in a long life. Having nothing to lose, James took the man on his offer and was ironically pushed from his apartment window anyway after taking some of the man’s blood.
James awoke in the hospital as a vampire, his wounds all remarkably healed. He managed to escape the hospital and found his way back to his apartment to find the man who had promised him immortality, but there was nothing left but a note telling him that Carter simply wished to leave behind a progeny before he took his own life that morning. Since the day he turned, James has been working on his music career and has made quite a big name for himself. Now, with the supernatural being outed, his career has became even bigger since his fans found out about his vampire status. He remains an optimist despite what he’s been through. With a long life ahead of him, he plans on spending it fulfilling all of the dreams his mother had for him and being happy for the first time in his life. Ever the romantic, it is reflected in his music as it begins spreading to ears everywhere, just as he has always wanted.

"People are much easier to read than they give themselves credit for."
Name: Juliana Torres
FC: Francia Raisa
Being the eldest daughter of the Torres family, Juliana was used to being in the spotlight. Whether it was seeing her face in the paper or having people stop her in the street to enthuse to her how fascinated they were with her family, there was always someone who always knew her name. While she was used to it, she was just as annoyed with it as anyone would be. From a young age, Juliana shrank into herself, preferring to watch from the sidelines rather than play the game. People always lamented how quiet and withdrawn she was, but the truth of the matter was that she enjoyed studying people. Despite her mother’s protests of having a more prominent part in social interaction, Juliana simply wasn’t interested in such things. Books -spell books and not- were all the interaction she needed and she was perfectly fine with the way things were going.
A braniac was what they called her by the time she reached high school. She made the best grades, excelled in every spell and lesson her parents threw at her and was tutoring people grades ahead of her.While her mother and teachers liked to make a big fuss out of it all, Juliana preferred slipping away from their always prying eyes. The only one who seemed to understand that was her father. He always babied she and her sister, no matter how old they were and how much they protested. Juliana would spend her days in her father’s study hiding from her mother’s newest lesson, playing chess with the man. She only ever managed to beat him once, but she always enjoyed his company.
His death hit her the worst. Gone was her father and her rock and there was no one to replace him, no matter how much anyone tried. Unlike her mother, however, she didn’t let his death throw her into a depression. Instead, she used it as motivation. She wanted to make him as proud of her as he was when he was alive and she knew the only way to do that was to achieve his dream of putting the family on top. After attending law school, Juliana moved back home to help her mother and siblings in their war with the Hawthorne’s. Using her wits and intelligence, Juliana plans to bring the Hawthorne’s down one at a time. And once Juliana puts her mind to something, there isn’t anything that can stop her.

"Batten down the hatches, here comes Jaime Torres."
Name: Jaime Torres
FC: Selena Gomez
Affiliation: Torres Family
Jaime Torres has always been a loose canon. Between her parents’ absences in her childhood and her idolized siblings, there wasn’t much attention to be given to the youngest Torres sibling. From a young age, she was mischievous. Her nannies would always complain of her pulling pranks and the lack of control everyone seemed to have over her. The only people Jaime bothered to pretend listening to out of respect were her older brother and sister, Juliana and Jorge, and even their words didn’t hold much weight. By the time she was in high school, she had the reputation of a bad girl. Teachers loathed having her in their class and no one bothered stopping her from skipping out in the middle of the day.
It wasn’t until her father’s death that things slammed into perspective for the girl. Seeing her mother depressed and her family in complete disarray stopped her reckless path in it’s tracks, and for once she bothered to think about someone other than herself for a change. She straightened up, started going to school regularly to bring up her grades and even stopped sneaking out her family’s mansion. Everyone seemed impressed with the girl’s change, but they also placed their own metaphorical bets on how long it would last.
After she graduated, Jaime opted out of going to college and instead decided to work on her magic full time. With all of her added free time, she also decided that it would be a good opportunity to wade the waters of New York City’s social high life. She attended parties and used her budding connections to make her families’ name even more prominent among the wealthy and well known. It was all going well for her until the day she met Zachary of the Blake family, a group of well known Hunters in the city. While she tried to resist his charms and good looks, their friendship soon turned to an affair she has been keeping a secret from her family for months. Now, she only has to make her choice. She can stay with the boy she might very well be falling in love with and be branded as a traitor by her family, or turn her back on Zack and make him an enemy. As much as she hates to admit it, the choice might be clearer than she things.
Later on, I’ll be setting up a chat for our old members so that we can discuss a few ideas I have for the roleplay. I would really love your opinions, so if you can make it I would really appreciate it!
She was born with darkness in her veins.
The eldest child of the Hawthorne family. The one that everyone believed would always stay in the light. Who would have thought she’d be the one to fall to corruption?

"What’s the point of having magic if you can’t enjoy it?"
Name: Jorge Torres II
FC: Michael Trevino
Occupation: Assassin for Torres Family
Jorge isn’t the same man he was three years ago. Then, he was genuinely carefree and happy. Now only stands a shell of the man that everyone knew and loved. Being a Torres, Jorge was always rather talented when it came to magic. He had a natural affinity to it. He made his mother and father proud by practicing magic that was well beyond his years and doing it so that it seemed effortless. The only thing that frustrated his parents was the fact that he couldn’t take anything seriously to save his life. He preferred making mischief and enjoying himself, something they didn’t want to take away from him, but they always reminded him that being the oldest meant that one day he would have to take responsibility and become head of the Torres family.
The idea of so much responsibility only made him want to shirk them even more. He stayed away from home for most of his teens and did anything he could to avoid the millions of lectures his parent’s liked to give him. The only solace he seemed to find was in a human girl named Diana whom he soon found himself falling in love with. They were young, but there wasn’t anyone in the world that could tell them that what they felt for each other wasn’t real. Jorge was willing to leave everything behind for her. His magic, his family, everything.
Shortly after he and Diana planned to get married, they found out that she was pregnant. Their joy over the information was cut short when Diana fell sick. There wasn’t any magic in the world that could save her. She passed away a few months later. Jorge was devastated by the loss of his love and child. The mischievous, carefree boy that everyone once knew died a long with Diana and a cold, distant man was set to replace him. Jorge returned to his family home and began his work so that he could one day become head of the family. With his sisters and mothers to comfort him, he’s slowly coming to terms with Diana’s death, but the man he once was is gone. The only thing left is unwavering loyalty to his family and an ice cold heart.
