Character Info

Profile

Vampirella is a demon who hunts other demons. She's alone in this world, maintaining only loose, superficial ties to groups like a Catholic order of warrior nuns who share her one-time goal of destroying monsters; a goal she feels increasingly adrift from. She's vanished somewhat from that crusade to take on a job as a school teacher, trying to build connections with humanity.

Timeline

Timeline:
*1969. Vampirella is created by her mother, Lilith, in a far demon plane. She is taught the basics of hunting, fighting, and survival there.
*1994. Vampirella's mother conjures her to Earth. The effects of being sent across dimensions affects Vampirella's mind, changing her understanding of her past. Her first Earthbound memory is of a plane crash which badly injures her. She is discovered by a chaos cult that nurses her back to health with the goal of using her supernatural powers. When she discovers their goals and their manipulation of her, she kills them and swears vengeance on their kind, hunting them. She is convinced this is her mother's purpose for her and she is on an unholy mission.
*1997. Upon killing Dracula (she isn't the first person to do so and probably won't be the last), Vampirella immigrates to America. She befriends a struggling magician by the stage name of Mordecai the Great and agrees to serve as his assistant.
*2000. Vampirella's bite transforms a human, her friend Sofia Murray, into a vampire. This has never happened before. Vampirella is forced to kill her friend in self-defense as Sofia's bloodthirst is uncontrollable and her body mutates rapidly. Vampirella swears off human contact for fear of what her presence might do to them, living only for the hunt. Her enemies send spirits to ply this weakness, tormenting and tempting her. She enlists with the Vatican and attaches herself to a holy order of warrior nuns, serving as their weapon.
*2019. No longer able to see a point in hunting her enemies because she has no one to share her victories with, Vampirella retreats from her crusade, only fighting when called on so the Vatican won't decide she's a deserter who needs to be put to the stake. She takes a job in a Gotham elementary as a math teacher, and attempts to reconnect with humanity through the dating scene.

Personality

Click to expand.

Conflicted:
Vampirella must drink blood to survive. This is hard for someone who mostly likes people and wants to make connections with them. She limits her predation to monsters and cultists.

Lonely:
Vampirella hides it behind a stoic facade, but she is desperately lonely and looking to make real connections.

Righteous:
Vampirella knows right from wrong, and will be avenged on those who trespass against her. Her ennui is strong, but rage can break out of it.

Character Sheet

Powers

Click to expand.

Blood Manipulation:
Vampirella has very minor control over blood. When drinking from a person, she can receive imprecise impressions of the kind of life they lead. Her famous costume is made of her own blood.

Demonic Physiology:
Vampirella is a living demon. She does not age and is immune to mortal diseases.

Minor Shapeshifting:
Vampirella can grow vampiric fangs, as well as huge bat wings with which she can fly. Her fingers can grow into deadly talons, but when this occurs, she enters a sort of "battle form. Her muscles bulge, her eyes become glowing blood-red, and her ears extend up higher than the crown of her head, making it impossible to hide her inhuman nature.

Vampiric Strengths:
Vampirella is magically strong and fast, capable of lifting more than a ton over her head and moving as fast as an Olympic athlete. Her senses are superhuman: she can see in the dark, hear a pin fall to the floor, and identify and track people by smell. She regenerates visibly. She is capable of mesmerizing people who are attracted to her. She does not age.

Vampiric Weaknesses:
Vampirella does not die in sunlight, though she finds it painful to her superhuman senses, blinding her eyes and skin with its touch. Garlic and Christian symbols do not repel her. She does not know if a stake through the heart will kill her.

Skills

Click to expand.

Combatant:
Vampirella has trained for decades as a fighter in a style that takes advantage of her unholy gifts.

Manipulation:
Vampirella was taught how to manipulate others as part of her training in hunting. It's difficult for her to form legtimate emotional bonds, but she does know how to trick others into doing what she wants.

Occultist:
Vampirella is well-versed in magical theory and other planes of existence. She has no skill for spells, but can often recognize magical effects for what they are.

Resources

Click to expand.

The Six Marys:
Vampirella has an odd working relationship with a group of warrior nuns who exist to fight demons (and only demons; not their cultists). Five of them are waiting for her to slip so they can kill her, but one of them believes in her and could perhaps convince the others to back her up, or provide her with sanctuary should she need it.

Weaknesses

Click to expand.

Hunted:
Chaos minions want Vampirella dead, and are willing to devote serious resources to doing so.

Inhuman:
Vampirella passes for human, but superhumanly acute senses would doubtlessly notice something off about her.

No Paper Trail:
Ella Normandy only exists in the minds of the staff at her school, created through her mesmeric powers. Anyone who ran a background check on her would find she does not exist.

Not Quite a Vampire:
Vampirella is not undead, so she must breathe and sleep. She feels pain. She must feed on blood from intelligent creatures to live. As a demon, she is subject to certain spells and rituals that could conjure or bind her.
