Blade

History

Eric Brooks was born in London, England in the district of Soho in October 24th, 1929. During his mother's labor, her doctor turned out to be a vampire who feasted on her as she was giving birth to her son, causing vampiric genetics to pass into Eric, but was not completely infected with the Vampire strand. Thus, while Eric's mother was killed by the vampire, Eric was born successfully.

The Vampire was driven away before he could kill the child.

Orphaned and growing up on the streets, Eric killed several people out of thirst for blood that he did not know how to manage or control. It was around this time that he had met an old Vampire Slayer named Jamal Afari and proceeded to rescue him against vampires who were out to kill him. Jamal eventually learned about Eric's unique origin and took him under his wing, teaching him all he knew about the craft of vampire hunting and monster slaying. Now with the tools to take his vengeance, Blade set out to avenge his deceased mother.

Thats when he started calling himself Blade. And Vampires started calling him the Daywalker.

For the next couple of decades, Blade became the nightmare of the vampire community, slaughtering them where he could. He managed to become an enemy of the law more than once when he was actually caught (at rare intervals) during his eternal crusade. During this time, Blade became a military operative, assisting with secret splinter groups like the Howling Commandoes (of which he was a consistent member until his departure) and even British Military with MI-6, becoming an intelligence operative for a brief stint with other 'enhanced' individuals. He even had a stint with the Marine Corps.

But now, Blade has returned to New York City. The Darkness will remember the name…

Blade.

Recent Events

Personality

Blade is a person who has a very cynical and grim view of the world. He's stoic and appears, at best, cold-hearted in most situations. Most noticeably, he holds a grudge and obsession with the total elimination of all vampires. However, despite his seething hatred against the blood-drinkers, Blade is not without a heart. He often plays the role of an anti-hero, willing to save people that need to be saved, but will not hesitate to bring death to his enemies.

Ironically, Blade also possesses a sense of humor that plays off of grim and dark situations. Nevertheless, He's straightforward, no-nonsense, and often times rude in direct social situations.

RP Hooks

Vigilante - You a Vigilante too? Lets meet!

Vampire - ….you want to fight?

Character Sheet

HEALING FACTOR: Blade can heal remarkably quickly. Almost as fast as a certain hairy Canadian mutant. Almost.

Blade can recover from severe slashes and puncture wounds in minutes to hours depending on how extensive or how severe the injury. Life threatening wounds take a few days to heal. It should be stated that Blade cannot return from the dead nor can he heal lost limbs, not unless he has outside help.

LONGEVITY: While not truly immortal like actual vampires, Blade will eventually die from old age. However, he will live for a VERY long time naturally. For example, despite looking to be in his early-to-mid thirties, he is actually ninety years old.

SUPERNATURAL AGILITY: Blade's agility and balance have been raised to supernaturally enhanced levels that are beyond an athlete of Olympic skill. He can leap several feet into the air without difficulty and He can perform above-human level parkour and seems to almost always land on his feet like a cat. Key word: Almost.

SUPERNATURAL DURABILITY: Blade is one of the tough ones. He's not so tough that he's invulnerable, mind, but he can just take a bit more punishment. Small-arms fire only bruises his flesh, not pierce, but anything above that will certainly do exactly that. He has mild resistance to energy weapons, able to survive their effects with naught but burn marks after, but of course they still hurt like madness.

SUPERNATURAL SENSES: Blade's senses are equal to that of true vampires. He can see clearly in total darkness, see long distances like an eagle, and detect even the smallest sound within his general vicinity. His senses also allow him to sense supernatural creatures in his general area, though he only really uses this to identify Vampires.

SUPERNATURAL STAMINA: Blade's body produces far less fatigue toxins than everyone else does. Which means it takes him effectively longer to get tired than the average person. Currently, Blade can perform at peak capacity for several hours before exhaustion claims him.

SUPERNATURAL STRENGTH: As a Dhampir, Blade possesses the strength of a full-fledged vampire. At rest, he can lift up to 1 ton but when he pushes his limit, he can lift a maximum of 6 tons.

VAMPIRIC IMMUNITY: Due to being a Dhampir, a mixed-breed of human and vampire, Blade is ultimately immune to almost all vampire weaknesses minus one (see flaws). This is mainly characterized by his ability to be in sunlight and not be harmed, nor would a stake to the heart kill him or a holy relic repel him. Silver has about as much effect on him as the average human being. He is also immune to vampire bites.

Miscellaneous

"So, how many times do I have to put you in the ground?"

"Motherfucker, are you outta yo damn mind?!? [said while cops shoot at HIM after a charred vampire just escaped a hospital]

"You better wake up. The world you live in is just a sugar-coated topping. There is another world beneath it — the real world. And if you want to survive it, you better [shouts] learn to pull the trigger!"

"You obviously do not know who you are SHITTING WITH!"

[To a vampire familiar] Go. You've got twenty seconds. [The familiar runs] Twenty. [Shoots him]

[When he sees the vampire nightclub, which is packed with several hundred vampires] "You've got to be kidding me."

[crashes out a fourth story window and lands smoothly on the ground] "Forgot my sword."
