Over the next three… three? Anna… Marcus… Doug… yes, three days I will be sharing the rest of the character bios with you. They will be going up on the website soon (as soon as I get quick and dirty temporary book covers put together for HW3 and HW4!) but I thought I would share them with you.
I will not, however, be editing them here again. *laughs* They will be edited [better] before they go up on the site.
Anna Marie Connor
Age: 33 (according to the government; 633 as a living Vampire this life)
Pack Status: Alpha Mate
Supernatural Status: Princess of the Vampires, daughter of Cain, heir apparent, holder of the Regnier seat on the Vampire Council, liaison to Dragon, Fae and Demon realms, Alpha Mate of the Four Claw Pack.
Human: Anna is a curvy girl in exactly the right way, she is the kind of sexy Marilyn Monroe was; very fluid, liquid lines, generous breasts and hips. Her hair is copper* with silver streaks, grows quickly and undergoes a random change in style every few months. She was born with tri-coloured eyes that change colour with her emotions. When she is happy they are pale green with copper around the iris and navy blue rims. They darken to emerald green with passion, either ire or arousal. When her ire reaches the point of fury or when the Vampire within her is hungry they turn black. When they are forest green with a black rim she is feeding from the ambient energy around her. She has sensual lips most often curved in a smile and a dimple in her left cheek that appears under sweeping cheekbones when she is delighted with something. She has a long torso, long legs and long arms that all make her look taller than she is. Her soft curves belie the strength her body carries.
*In Demon Plague Anna’s hair turns black after a battle with a griffin and later it turns white after an infusion of Demon essence. She also acquires three thin scars from her right temple to the corner of her mouth, giving her a small, permanent lopsided smile.
Vampire: Anna’s Vampire is harder, leaner and uglier, even her fingers lengthen as the nails turn into razor sharp claws. The bones in her face become more prominent, sharper and more angular. Her canine teeth lengthen and all her other teeth sharpen, giving her mouth the appearance of double the amount of teeth. Her eyes turn black as her skin pales to the death white of her undead kin.
Wolf: Anna’s Wolf’s beauty is a complete polar opposite to the ugliness of her Vampire. Because of her human weight she comes in larger than most of the pack’s other female Wolves at about 185 pounds. Her fur is a deep, dark black like Liam’s but with the silver streaks from Marcus’s influence in her change. Her eyes are a beautiful clear amber.
After her adventures in Hell in Demon Plague Anna’s fur is snow white, almost a crystalline purity.
Demon: (Her Demon form comes out in Demon Plague during a course of events in the depths of Hell.) Anna’s Demon is a blend of her Vampire and Wolf with a few changes. She has the same facial structure of her Vampire but with a shortened Wolf snout altering the lower half of her face, giving her face a half-Vamp, half-Wolf structure. Long sharp teeth, snow white hair and deep-set black eyes complete the appearance. Her skin turns ash grey and she is covered with short startlingly soft, white fur. Her body tightens, slims, becomes longer, almost skeletal. The claws she has in her Vampire form are nothing compared to what tips her fingers in this form. The final detail is a pair of large, dull silver, bat-like wings that sprout from her back.
Background: Anna is her human name but in the other Realms she’s known as Princess Sadira Chalthoum. She is a living vampire with a purpose: to maintain the peace and good relations between the Vampires and the rest of the Supernatural world. She is born over and over again, choosing with each death to be reborn alive rather than become undead, so that she remains current in thinking with the shorter lived Supernaturals, such as the Lycanthropes.
Janelle, her mother, is half Witch and half Vampire and is the source of much of Anna’s magic. Where Anna’s Vampire half, from her father, trumps the Witch, in Janelle the two are in perfect balance. She is in a human body kept immortal by her Mate, Cain.
Cain is Anna’s father. He is the Cain of Cain and Abel infamy, cursed by the Christian God to walk the night, feeding solely upon humanity. He is the source of Vampire kind and Anna is the only genetic, living child he has ever sired. He sits upon the throne, father and king of Vampires, a vicious and nearly merciless ruler.
Anna has been involved in the Supernatural world since birth (in all her lives it is the same). She is generous, kind and sweet. She is an excellent diplomat who works tirelessly to find peaceful resolutions but who can be as cold, hard and vicious as her father.
Anna is the Vampire liaison to the Supernatural Council and it is at one of those council meetings that she meets Liam. He had never attended before, having always sent his Beta, Marcus. Their energies, their souls, were immediately drawn together. They decided to keep talking after the meeting and eventually got together in the Astral Realm. They fell in love quickly. It was deep and true and within a few months they knew it was forever. He and his pack bite her and bind her to them.
Weaknesses: Anna is the absent-minded professor type; very powerful, fairly smart but most often stuck in her own head or in at least one other Realm at the same time. She is vulnerable to attack because she doesn’t pay attention to her physical surroundings.
Physical body is easily injured; power use drains her physical strength.
Always sees the good in people.
Strengths: Always sees the good in people. Anna is fiercely loyal. She loves deeply. She always keeps her word. She has the combined powers of Vampire, Witch and Wolf. She is honourable.
Abilities/Traits: Astral projection, healing, fire (blue is healing and cleansing, black – which is Demon fire and comes in book two – is pure destruction), shape shifting (to Wolf form), body temperature rises with passion (anger or sexual) and can rise to the point of spontaneous combustion. She can cut an opening in the seam of reality between realms to pull things out or put things in, after book two she discovers that she is able to move her physical body through the seams.
Anna is the only Vampire-Wolf hybrid in existence in any realm and is one of the singularly most powerful creatures ever. And yet, she is vulnerable because of her human frailities and her innate need to see the best of people.
