My name is John Matthew, and I used to be lost, a boy without parents or any path to speak of. That was before Tohrment, a warrior of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, and his shellan, Wellsie, found me and brought me into their home. My world changed when I discovered I was like them, a pre-transition vampire, brother to the Queen of our race, son to Darius of Marklon. For the first time I knew unconditional love.
Then my happy life was hijacked. Wellsie was gunned down in cold blood, and Tohr returned with the angel Lassiter, who seems to annoy the crap out of most everyone here. I’m just glad to have my father back, and the more time that passes, the more it seems we’ve done this before. We’ve been here before. Our bond was forever sealed the day I stood at his side during Wellsie’s Fade ceremony.
After my transition my friend Qhuinn saved me from unspeakable brutality, costing him his own freedom, almost. Before he was inducted into the Black Dagger Brotherhood, he served as my Ahstrux Nohtrum, my personal guard, a position he was appointed to by the King himself. When the raids started, Blay moved into the Brotherhood compound, while his parents escaped to their safe house. Wrath invited us to fight with the brotherhood.
Life wasn’t really complete until I met my female, Xhex. Half symphath, half vampire and the blood that tears through my veins, she brought it all into focus for me and everything realigned. I’ll fight to the death to protect her, even if she won’t let me. We’ve had our issues lately, but some shit you just can’t fight. Like destiny.
