***I will be adding to this as I can.***


Redhaven, Massachusetts



The Veil Lifted

20XX.


Only half a decade has passed since the existence of vampires had been revealed to the world after an EU representative was staked on live television. The assassination, spearheaded by a radical international hunter group, was the event that officially lifted the Veil—the word supernatural creatures use to describe the separation between humankind and the supernatural. It sent shock waves through not only human and vampire societies, but those of other supernatural creatures, as well. Tensions are high worldwide as humans warily navigate the world they were once familiar with possessing strange new knowledge that has thrown the supernatural balance into chaos.

It was a literal bloodbath at first, with humans, vampires, and other supernaturals fighting for survival against each other out in the open in third- and second-world countries. First-world countries were not free from the bloodshed, either, but the warfare was usually more discreet. Official laws stated that so long as a vampire hadn't been proven to have harmed a human, it was not lawful to kill them—mostly because they were still tax-paying citizens. Communities already prone to strong prejudices found their new vampiric targets easy to blame for any and all societal ills. The situation was so bad in the beginning that if a human were so much as suspected of being a vampire, they could be found dead the next morning with a stake in their heart. Many vampires that held positions of authority were either forced to resign or outright killed by those seeking to keep the bloodsuckers out of their communities.

Blame was not solely to place on humans, however. Various vampire factions tried in vain their own ways to keep repair the Veil, some more violent than others. With humans more wary out in the open than ever, many vampires began engaging in blood trafficking, the kidnapping and selling of humans as personal blood supplies. Others who fancied themselves more moral took to raiding blood banks or blood drive vehicles.

Eventually, the violence slowed as more was understood about vampire kind and their impressive diversity. Several hundred "variations" of vampires were identified, all with differing abilities and weaknesses. Of course much of this knowledge was leaked to the public through hunter and slayer organizations, although more sympathetic humans took to leading the research efforts into how humans and the supernatural could coexist peacefully.

Other supernaturals have seen this radical shifting of the Veil as an opportunity to come out of hiding, as well. Shifters, ghosts, demons, angels, various demigods and goddesses—all groups now have members "coming out" from behind the Veil to their family, friends, and neighbors. Whether such revelations will lead to a future of peace or peril is still not clear.


The World



The City of Redhaven

Population: 800,000

Redhaven is a metropolitan city in the heart of Massachusetts with a bustling city center surrounded by typical New England suburbia. It manages to combine the community feel of its various neighborhoods with the anonymity that comes with a larger population, making it the ideal home for humans and supernatural alike. The city's rich colonial and magical history makes it a bastion of diversity in an unusual place, with supernatural creatures drawn to the area because of its strong magical energy. It is said that the ground beneath Redhaven was imbued with powerful magic in ancient times by a group of wandering shamans intending to create a safe haven for the gods. Inadvertently, they created a magnet for the supernatural.

Colonial vampires saw the area as an ideal place to make their home and so Redhaven was founded and vampires across the colonies made their way to the rapidly growing settlement over the decades and centuries. Though they tried to encourage the growth of the human population to provide them with a steady supply of food, other supernatural creatures began to descend upon the sacred grounds, making the humans more superstitious and wary. As a result, the vampires had to fight back to keep them out, but it was impossible to hold them back forever. This territorial feud between the vampires of Redhaven and groups of other supernatural creatures still continues to the present day.

Before the Veil was lifted, Redhaven was a tourist trap for supernatural fanatics from ghost hunters to those that had heard legends of real vampires making their lairs within the city. Now with concrete evidence of the supernatural, the city sees even more tourists, much to the dismay of its human residents and to the delight of its vampire population.

Do we post our characters in the character tab or only after they get approved?

I would wait for approval.

I'd also edit your character more. I don't think anyone here will understand how a "uh human i think" will be able to have telekinesis and turn into a monster. And dismissing the personality section with "multiple personalities lol" is lazy writing at best and insulting to people who have the disorder at worse.

I have a link to a better description and also I was trying to not insult that disorder (I’m also saying what she has is different) I actually get pretty pissed when people insult that kind of stuff

I'm very interested! I'll start on a sheet right away. Can I make up my own balanced variation of vampire since there were multiple types? I think that could be fun!

I’ll have to edit my CSs somewhat because I didn’t realize that vampires were public knowledge in this setting... must’ve missed that somewhere, my bad. Will finalize them tomorrow!

@vertigh0st Elias is approved.
@unicorgi I'm okay with the idea of a supernatural variant of multiple people within one person, but I really think it needs to be fleshed out more. I also don't think she should be able to turn into a monster because that would make her inhuman and combined with having a genius personality AND telekinesis, it's pretty OP. I also prefer proper capitalization and punctuation.
@Aleranicus Nathan is fuckin' approved.
@Cio Nessa is approved.
@SamaraJayne96 Azura is approved, but I'm not too keen on the perfect shape shifting. I think it should be imperfect in a way, maybe coming very close to the real thing, but just off enough that anyone who really knows the person would feel something is off.
@Kinjaav That's fine! Take your time :3
