GM NOTE: This is Forest's Old Sheet. For her new one, check the character sheet thread.Name:
Forest, Law Unto HerselfRace:
Around 1,350. Physically 19.Height:
Forest is tall and slim with the body of a gymnast or dancer. Toned muscle but without much bulk. Forest is more about speed and agility than power, even though she does have more than enough of that to spare. Most of her height comes from her legs, and they are lovely and perhaps her favorite feature about her body, other than her slightly longer than waist length golden blond hair. She has a classically pretty face with high cheek bones, an Aristocratic nose, fairly large violet-blue eyes (she likes to relate that they're the color of iolites), a mouth with a lower lip considerably plumper than the top, giving her a bit of a pouting look. As a vampire she has very pale skin, which is even more emphasized by the fact that she likes to wear dark red lipstick and black clothing.
Forest knows all about cutting a silhouette and is rarely seen without her fitted black leather duster. It hits her at about mid calf and has Celtic knots stamped on the back shoulders, on the back of the sleeves and tapering down to her waist. She is very fond of this coat and hurting it in anyway is a sure way to piss her off. She generally wears black jeans, Doc Martian's steel toed biker boots, a black camisole (even though she has a red one or a purple one) or black turtleneck. She also wears her .44 Super Magnum at her hip in a sort of modified quick draw holster.
She barely has any bosom to speak of (She's either on the large size of A or the small end of B depending on the brand), but has a nicely curved bottom due to her dancing and tumbling. She has long, clean limbs but feels awkward and gangly because being turned at such an early age where she didn't get to fully develop.(For those wanting to know, she does have Dem Legs and Dat Ass.) She's one of those sporty pretty girls that has no idea how gorgeous she actually is and dresses more for practicality and to be recognized than to look good.Physical AttributesStrength:
Forest is highly skilled in Martial Arts, a master of a variety of styles and schools. Her current favorite is Jeet-Kun-Do which she learned from Bruce Lee himself.
She’s also a master linguist too, speaking fluently over 20 languages. She has some trouble with Spanish.
Combat Medic- Due to all the conflict that Forest has been involved in over the centuries she is a highly efficient combat medic and can even perform some meatball surgery. She’s also been a midwife as well.Telepathy:
Not only can she read minds, she can communicate over great distances this way and also hypnotize and control most people with ease.
She can read minds. Erase/manipulate memories. Hypnosis. She can also cause hallucinations. Communicate mentally.
Also under causing hallucinations she can make people think they see-heard-smell-touched- something that wasn't there or make them think something wasn't there that they did experience.
Theoretically she can even make people do things they don't want to do, but that's generally a no-go. She can also put someone to sleep this way as well.
You know, telepathy/mind control stuff.
Things like the hypnosis, mental manipulation she works best if she makes eye contact with the subject. However, Mind Reading can be done from miles away if she concentrates. She can also communicate or "send" messages over great distances. She can generate mental "bonds" with people, like she has with Gabriel, that allows her to converse with them over great distances. She can also invite them into her "mindscape" (IE Inner World) and have it feel as "real" as if was happening in reality. However, this is a very rare occurrence.
She can influence several targets at once, but the more she attempts to influence, the less effective it will be. On the flip side, she can also shield someone from mental attacks as well, and is highly resistant to the point of almost immunity to mental influence as well. Regeneration:
Superhuman – unless it is a fatal wound such as a stake through the heart, beheading, or immolation through fire or sunlight, Forest will survive it. She can even regenerate limbs and take gunshot wounds to the head. She just needs blood to recover it.Orgasmic Bite:
When Forest feeds she causes orgasms. Generally not intentionally. Heightened Senses:
All of Forest’s senses, due to her vampirism, are heightened: touch, taste, smell, sight, hearing, and mental.My soul is solely mine.
An interesting quirk of vampires from Forest’s home world is that their souls cannot be taken from them nor can they willingly sell their soul either. It is theirs until death and cannot be taken away willingly or by force.Magical Ability:
Low. Forest can cast very small fire spells- like lighting a candle. Equipment:
67’ Camaro. 44. Magnum. An axe older than her that was her father’s. The Compound. A lot of weapons, money, and cars.Origin:
Back in the days before the Dark Ages back when the Celts were still Celts and the Vikings were still kicking around there was a Viking man who was captured when his ship picked the wrong Celtic Village to attack. The rest of his people left and he was left alone, seeing that the guy really couldn't do anything to hurt them now, he was let go and sort of adopted into the clan. There he fell in love with the sister of the Chieftain's wife, who came from a powerful family of magic users and telepaths. They were wed and the Viking's wife and the Chieftain's wife had daughters on the same night. However, the Viking's wife died in childbirth. The Viking tried his best to raise his new baby daughter, but not too longer he was struck down in battle as well.
So the little girl, Bronach, was taken in with her aunt and uncle while her cousin was being groomed as the next High Priestess of the Brigid for their tribe. The two were as close as sisters and the clan thought their shared birthdays was a blessed thing. Except as the redhead grew as a powerful healer and Druid, the blond Bronach was apparently born for battle. So Gormlaith represented the healing and light of the trinity Goddess the Brigid, Bronach represented the Brigid's Dark Side, the Trinity Goddess the Morrigan. Yet Gormlaith and Bronach were unseperatable despite being so different.
Bronach grew into a warrior that could best most of the men of her Clan and her name was feared in battle. She always seemed to know who to strike and at what time, tapping into a telepathic talent she wasn't quite sure of at the time. This was all well and good until a little after she turned 19 when she drew the attention of a Roman vampire that had his ass handed to him by Bodicida and still had issues with Celtic warrior women who could kick ass. So he nabbed Bronach one night while she was paying tribute to the Morrigan . He threatened to go after Gormlaith and the rest of her clan if she did not come with him and submit.
He proceeded to pretty much rape the young warrior as he turned her into a vampire with the thought of making her his eternal toy. Then he proceeded to make her life a living hell trying to break her will.
Except he didn't count on Bronach being a natural telepath and having enough will of her own to break free of his control long enough to club his head in with a rock and getting the hell away from him, no matter what. So for a while she was half starved and half mad until she got a hold of the whole vampire thing. Then she encountered an incubus trying to rape a defenseless girl one night. Despite all of his power, the incubus really didn't know how to use all of his strength, while Bronach did. He fell, the girl was safe and Bronach had an epiphany.
And then Forest was born while Bronach died.
Forest became the most sought after assassin for the supernatural until she built up enough wealth and reputation to strike out on her own, where she eventually earned the title Law Unto Herself given to her by a vampire bard with a serious crush. Of course, she made plenty of friends and enemies on her rise of power. Had her heart broken by an unusual Faerie that she loved but he didn't love her as much in return. Found her sister reborn several times, befriended one Lady Wynn Noreen Umbra of the Unseelie court and became godmother to her "abomination" son.
Flash forward to modern times where Forest is, as she was titled, Law Unto Herself with more money than most current day corporations due to good investing and a shrewd mind for business. These things gave Forest the luxury to do things that most vampires would never due to fear of the Vampiric Council and the Circle.
One night she found herself, and luckily all of her assets, pulled into the Nexus. With no contact with Gabriel, Wynn, or anyone else she was close to, she’s been growing more distant and into herself with each passing night. She patrols the streets of Nexus helping the helpless, but she may be trying to seek her own end as well.You can read more about Forest here
Since stakes Forest is a vampire she's not fond of holy objects with true faith behind them, holy ground pisses her off, especially Christian churches. Fire, Sunlight, wooden stake to the heart, and beheading are the four ways to kill her. The only way to bind her is with magic or silver.
She’s also emotionally vulnerable as well, she keeps her past tight to her chest, and without her Poppet she’s finding it harder and harder to continue.Unconscious Lure
- As an Elder vampire with blood ties to Lilith, Forest emits a low-level Lure that she’s not aware of. This makes her appear attractive to people who Forest wouldn't generally register on their radar. Likes:
Bruce Campbell. Bad horror movies. Sports cars. Gemstones. Paranormal romance novels. Anything written by Joss Whedon that’s not “Alien Resurection”. Comics. Cu Culihian (the myth). The Morrigan. Gabriel. Large, manly men (redheads are a plus). Heavy metal. Lavender. The color violet. Leather dusters. Pop Culture. Steel toed boots. Oranges and most other fruit. Warmth. A good fight. Burn Notice
and Brisco County Jr.
. Of course the “Evil Dead” movies get a ton of love because Bruce Campbell. Dislikes:
When people try to rape her. Being cold. When people are assholes for no reason. The fact that she’s an “eternal virgin”. Evil wankers.
