BACKSTORY (FAMILY STORY)
1. The Period Before Roleplay
✠ Before Birth: Centuries ago, in old England a family of pureblood vampires known as the Iwahari Household lived in near the border between today's Scottland and England in a glorious manor. The family's head passed away, the leadership was left to the two twin brothers as they were the oldest ones among the siblings (5 sisters and 2 other brothers). One of the twin brothers, Hani, decided to leave the title to his twin as he rather spent his time writing books. They where still rather young and inexpirienced. The current "king" fell in love with a human female, a great mistake. The family bounds crashed as he announced that the human bore his child. The woman's parents found out about the vampire household residing very near their village and decided to bring them down, burning their mannor together with the "king" and the mother, all except Hani Iwahari. He menaged to save his belongings and left the area as if he never lived there nor knew anyone who died in the fire. (Not known what happened to the rest of the siblings.)
The woman brought a halfing to the world after she escaped to old Germany. She was burnt years later as the church found her guilty of witchcraft. The child survived, and continued the generation of the bloodline, not even knowing about the vampiric bloodline he held within himself as he was quite young when his mother died and she never told him about the father. The vampiric genes stayed hidden within the next generations and the bloodline became thinner and thinner. Tamaki's grandfather just as gradmother died just after Darius, his father, came to life. The knowledge of the vampiric bloodline was lost, for now.
Darius had a rough childhood, living through the WW2 as a child, working as a slave through some while and being brought to England as he was sold. He was then adopted by a noble family in London. As his adoptive parents died, he was given all the rights to the company they owned. He was around his 20-es when that happened. His past made him cruel, careless, lustfull for money. His salvation was meeting the woman of his life when he made a quick trip to Japan. He soon married the female named Emi and he brought her to England with him.
After a few years they decided moving to Japan as per Emi's wish. But he insisted in building an old fashioned English manor on the outskirts of Matsuda, Emi's birthtown. Soon their 1st born child came to life, the boy which they named Ryosuke. The bit of vampiric genes left in Darius didn't go onto Ryo. But they did flow into their 2nd son Tamaki, who was born 5 years after Ryosuke.
✠ Childhood (newborn - age 10): Tama was quite a fragile newborn, often in the hospital through the 1st year of his life which worried his parents to death. As soon as he became 3 years old he was as healthy as any other child, only his body seemed always very fragile outside and his skin was quite pale which was the reason for his father to keep him pretty much away from the outside world, always paying the most attention to him. Ryo was always on 2nd place. That annoyed the older brother so he didn't play a great role in Tama's life for now.
As he grew to age 5 his father brought private teachers for this and that - from piano lessons to classical dance and polite behavior and similar things. Not only Tama but Ryo went through those lessons as well so it wasn't special treatment for the younger son. Tamaki did not really like those tho, as he rather wanted to go out and play like the other children in their neighbourhood.
Such a lifestyle kept on going until he reached age 7. Everything went upside down for Tama then. His parents where workaholics, never home to take care of the little son. He was left to the care of the maids and - his older brother. Ryo, who was not too fond off his little brother, started cussing at the small boy, and after a while started commanding him around. He had behaved like a spoiled brat, making Tama do anything he wanted. Tama ofcourse followed all his commands as he admired his older brother. Each time he had done something wrong tho, Ryo would have phisicaly abused the little brother. Tama didn't have the right to say anything to his parents or anyone as Ryo became more and more agressive towards him, until the point where he even threatened him with death, which happened the night before Tama turned 10.
All the admiration turned soon enough into respect and - fear. Great fear.
✠ Teenage years I. (11 - 15): Tama was now in 6th grade. He was always an excellent student with high grades. But, he started missing out of classes. The reason was Ryo, and the bruises and wounds Tama had were caused by his brother.
The now old enoug teenager became now the classical frustrated one, letting out all his anger in form of violence, violence uppon his younger brother. Some people would have called him sick-minded if anyone knew what he was doing actually. But Tama always kept his mouth shut, not even caring anymore if anyone knew anything. He grew and grew, living under the abusement of his brother with something called... actual acceptation? No, no one would accept such a lifestyle. Tama just lost it, all the will to fight back.
As the parents wanted better education for their son, they made him move to a flat to one of the districts of Tokyo - Ikebukuro, Toshima, together with his older brother. Nothing particular changed.
By the age of 14 you couldn't find one bit of resemblance to the 5-year-old boy he used to be. The always-so-happy and shinny orbs where now dull brown eyes. The expression was so.. lifeless. Not to talk about all the wounds he had which he earned by "tripping over things, cutting himself on a knife or paper, falling down the stairs" and who knows what kinds of accidents.
The line was fully crossed that one Friday night, when just another of Tama's birthdays - the 15th to be exact - was ending. He was alone in the flat. His parents where far of in America on a business trip, and his brother? Probably somewhere with his fiancee.
He was laying flat on the big leather sofa. He liked the actual peace in the place... until the slamming of the entrance door was heard. It was Ryo, entering the living room while yelling around, obviously as angry as always. No, something was different.. was he crying? Tama seemed a bit worried, stepping to his brother slowly. Asking if he was alright. The older brother just slapped him across the face with anger, pinning him down then. A few hits landing, a few whimpers heard. The older brother started tearing the younger one's clothing. Tama was confused by his sudden actions, wondering why he was doing it, until he released. After a few struggles and more punches and hits, and a few blood drops spilled, the younger one menaged to kick off the older one. He was fighting back for the 1st time after years, with reason. He quickly ran up to his room, packing some things into a small bag, pulling on new clothing as well. Then he left the house after being sure he knocked the brother out.
There he was now, the rather tiny 15-year-old wondering the busy streets of Ikebukuro. He whiped the last drops of blood off his chin and forced himself to stop cry.
Soon he approached a bar. He knew he wasn't allowed to drink yet but he decided to enter it despite the fact. For a wondersome reason the bartender let him drink after a few mocking announcements. He never drank before so the few beer he drank took soon effect over him. The next he could remember was waking up in a hotel besides a seemingly older man.
He hurried packing his things and putting on his clothes and left before the man could wake up. He decided returning to the apartment, entering through the front door with caution. The other brother was laying on the floor still, staring at the ceiling, but as soon as he heard the door he sat up with a glare. He was about to yell at the smaller one but Tama hit with his pale fist against the wall and glared at the brother, yelling out his soul then at him and declaring he'd move to another place. The brother stayed motionless, stunned by the fiercy of the little Tamaki that obeyed him always under any means.
Tama then walked past him, tearing his hand out of the older one's grip as he grabbed onto the younger one's wrist lightly.
With the money he had from his parents, he moved to a torn up apartment on the other side of Ikebukuro. After leaving all his things there he decided to return to the same bar from a few days back, he wanted to know what happened that evening. He entered, seeing the man that he had found in the bed beside him in the hotel that one morning. After a deep breath in he approached him. He seemed very nervous and the stutter he had since his earlier years didn't help either. But after a long talk and the man declaring his "love at first sight" to Tama, Tama felt warm around his chest for the first time in long. The man introduced him to the other regular customers in the bar and Tama gained a few more friends as well as a lover - the man himself.
2. Teenage Years II. - Important Events Through The RP
✠ 15 Years - Few months after the 1st visit to the bar he found out demons, angels, vampires, witches and so on exist as few of his new bar friends were such creatures. He 1st did get confused by all of it but accepted it with joy soon as he realized he needed such a different change in his life.
✠ 16 Years - A short while after he became 16 a pureblood vampire offered him to turn him into a vampire, or rather Tama asked for that himself. Ofcourse it didn't happen just because they drank each others blood but because of the hidden vampiric genes and the Iwahari blood that he had already. Usually growing fangs and the change of the eye color happen through the actual procedure of the change (around age 18-25 of every vampire) but the blood of this pureblood changed the process.
Soon after his change he gained an enemy - a hellhound by the name Bakyura who Tama fought with often enough, giving each other from time to time horrible wounds which mostly heal of both's fast healing abilities. Bakyura a.k.a. Baku gave Tama the scar on his cheek with a special pocket knife in just one more of their usual fights. Baku played later on an important role in Tama's life as they got very close and pretty much lived in a friend/foe relationship.
Tama started getting more and more calls of his parents and brother, asking him to move back to them, go to family dinners and similar but he kept rather distance from all of them.
He moved to another school, in which he met a special teacher who requested to train him, teach him self defense and sparring with a sword. Thus Tama got stronger through the next few years as he kept up with the training.
He didn't hear of his lover for long which shook him some more up.
His sight drastically worsened with time.
✠ 17 Years - Tama started wearing glasses a bit before he turned 17.
He started slacking off in school and skipping more and more classes. He started visiting the school infirmary more often where he met a rather psychotic doctor who told him his secrets. Tama accepted the secret as he still enjoyed the company of the unusual school doctor. He started taking small redish pills prepared by the doctor for his poor sight and the headaches he often had.
✠ 17 Years - As he realized he wouldn't hear of his lover again he considered their relationship done. It seemed as if he dissapeared from the surface of earth as most of the people he knew in the past didn't meet him until 1 year later. He actually just moved to the school dormitories as he had "family problems."
His thirts for blood became rather strong. Stronger and stronger, day by day. And he became more lazy and similar on warmer days.
✠ 19 Years - And current- His last year at Highschool, so he's a senior student now, still somehow able to live under the humans but as soon as he feels the scent of blood he must go somewhere else or his behavior might change suddenly due to the behavior disorder described in the informations up.
Bakyura finds him after some researches and similar which surprises yet makes Tama quite happy.
His happiness fades again as his thirst problems occure again. It leads him once to nearly murdering a woman outside a bar after he got drunk.
He later on fi- error- error- ... [This would be all of the story I want to say.]
PAST AND CURRENT STORY CONCERNING HANI IWAHARI
The pureblood lived all the while in Japan after his former home and family burned down. Living in the estate he estabilished a great library with different scriptions, old languages and his own books.
Just centuries later, rather in the 20th century he finds out about the only possible successor for their bloodline as he himself didn't plan to have children. After a while he finds Iwahari Darius but doesn't step in contact as he realizes he didn't have the potential to go through the change ceremony he had to go through to become a pure blood vampire.
Just years later he returned to getting information on the new Iwahari family as he heard about the 2nd son, Tamaki.
Just shortly after Tama turned 18, Hani's estate was burnt down and he had to find a new manor. He chose one quite near Tokyo, the castle of the former master of Bakyura, where Hani met him as well and declared himself his new master. As soon as he found out Baku was in contact with Tama he decided on a proper plan on finding out everything about the halfling Tama. As his plan proceeds, the story conti- error- error- ...
