Miriam Agatha Jeikobu
| Miriam Agatha Jeikobu|
(Gaera Second Generation)
| 12th of Kazerora, 1322|
Estate of Vashtiy, Underworld
|Current Residence||Christian Jeikobu IV's Tower-fortress, Yamaedor Mountain-side, Doma|
|Occupation||Unemployed, studying magic under her Father|
|Family||Christian Jeikobu IV (Father), Vashtiy Haniel (mother)|
|physical description||5' 4", with a slight built, Miriam's not the most imposing of figures. She's got very dark blue, almost black hair at near waist-length and yellow, cat-like eyes. Porcelain-skin because of spending her life mostly in-doors, and a slender reptilian tail (carefully hidden under her dress).|
|Typical Attire||Miriam prefers long dresses and discreet, but fashionable, jewelry, and she's usually seen dressed in rather covering robes, mantles and robes, but after recent ventures with Sirvix, she's taken to trying to be more revealing in her choice outfits, but without having had a chance to shop away, she's got to make due with what she's got. Likewise, her preference in color's somewhat sobre, and she enjoys wearing matt purple, red and black, like her father, and jewelry is mostly silver, her ear-rings in silver with inlaid, polished onyx. She's known to wear evening-dresses and gowns, should the occasion require it, and she's also got a set of black-lacquered ceremonial armor, a family heirloom. Although she used to wear white, elbow-length gloves most of the time, the recent addition of talons has made this very difficult.|
|Personality||Miriam has spent very little time outside her father's tower, and therefore has a somewhat limited world-view. Due to her father's penchant to over-the-top power-hunger, not to mention her mother's nature, Mir has a thirst for power and knowledge that, while not as obvious as her father's, does color much of her behaviour, direct or otherwise. She may be a bit naive, but she learns quickly, and in difference to her father she much more prefers to see herself as ambitious, carrying none of her father's imagined grudge against King Charles, but rather see old business as dead as her ancestors. Although intimidated by her mother to no end, she's started to realize what an asset that side of her family in, and has recently approached her mother about all kinds of matters, most of which the old bitch-queen is more than happy to exploit to her own ends. Miriam is also, sadly, a teenager, and is therefore a victim to most hormonally-charged emotional problems as most of your average teens. She's not exactly greedy, but will do some pretty nasty things to get what she wants, and she can be manipulative, vindictive and over-react to any dismissal or declinations. She's got a good heart though, even if it's sometimes hard to find.|
|Religious Beliefs||Miriam, like her father, is far too occupied with her own interests to pay homage to any particular deity, although she's of course open-minded enough to accept their existance. She doesn't feel anything particular to them, although she of course respects power.|
|Drunk Type||Miriam becomes painfully blunt when she's drunk, losing her ability to sugarcoat things, and her streak of arrogance becomes more obvious. Then she continues drinking and becomes incoherent.|
Christian Jeikobu IV wanted power, no matter what the cost. Having never seen his family squander their power away into nothing, merely being told a scewed and unreal version of it that blamed the Doman Nobility, he grew up hateful and power-hungry, willing to do anything to restore his family name to its proper seat of respect. To this end he dabbled in the forbidden arts. Although trained as a warrior-magician, he abandoned the path of the blade to divert all his attention to the dark arts of demonology and necromancy, anything to be able to wrest power from whomever had it and was too weak to keep it.
During these dabblings, Christian made a deal with a succubus named Vashtiy, a minor noble in the Underworld, in order to attain knowledge otherwise out of his reach. Vashtiy, meanwhile, was given a rather significant portion of the human's soul, which she still keeps in a lockbox in her personal chamber. For although their dealings first began as merely business, she developed a liking to the desperate but willful man and had, what she'd prefer to call it, a brief fling with the end-result of a baby girl being born. Although Christian remained unaware of this for some time, the matter was revealed to him on his daughters second birthday and managed to wrest guardianship of her from her mother, although what the prize was he has not told anyone.
Miriam had been named Agatha by her mother, the name which she had first used when she had met Christian, but her father, finding himself unable to call his daughter that, gave her his mother's name, Miriam. Miriam was a half-blood, and it showed. She had claws, fangs, leathery wings and a thin, reptilian tail, and her hair was in a burgundy red shade. Feeling that she should suffer less from her father's badly-chosen path, he used much of his power to seal away his daughter's demonic side, making away with most of the more obvious traits. He decided likewise that keeping her locked up, away from boys, demons and just generally other people, would be the best thing for her daughter.
Pretty obvious he had no clue on how to raise a kid.
So Miriam grew up under her father's tutelage, learning how to be a proper noble, how to hunger for power and not how to socialize with people outside the formal. Although her talons were reduced to fairly long nail-like claws, she was taught to file them down, and her father schooled her in the field of Fire and summoning magic, feeling that letting her dabble in Shadow arts would be too dangerous considering the seals he'd put on her.
So, after a mostly uneventful early puberty, Miriam was the wonderfully isolated person her daddy wanted, and he relaxed a bit as she seemed to calm down from her occasional bouts of demonic-fueled anger, or her desire not to be in the same room as her father. Of course, she was allowed to head outside once in a while, not to mention the semi-annual visit to her mother, but other than that her contact with outside people was, at best, non-existant.
Of course, what he didn't know was that, at the age of 15, Miriam'd already figured out how to make her way to visit her mother by herself, and through her learned a bit about that side of life as well. Vashtiy was, naturally, somewhat reluctant to share all she knew, but did enjoy spending some time with her child without her paranoid father realizing it.

All celestials and holy creatures cannot pass through this area of land. Should they wish to do so, they must make a COU*3+d20 check vs. the caster's spellcasting check. If they succeed, they may pass through the area, but they suffer 100 points of damage as a result.
