Rubrec DeBheil

Back in a hurry to deal with an issue

a character in “Beautiful Creatures Hidden”, as played by Pazeem

Description

Name: Rubrec DeBheil

Age: Old (born 1773), but youthful; appears 25ish.

Height: 6'1"

Weight: 200 lbs

Hair: Is copper reddish, the exact nuance always in contrast to the light. Darker under the light. Lighter in the dark.

Eyes: Are either green, grey, brown, or blue, depending on the light surrounding him. Always the one that make them seem darker. Usually hidden behind very dark purplish tinged designer sunglasses; even in the dark.

Sexuality: Is this relevant in PG-13? Ace, then.

Personality: Full of contrasts. Easy-going, but prone to rage-trips, if he encounters unreasonable resistance. Pleasure-seeking, but asexual with long bouts of asceticism.

Species: Half-Demon (Apocalyte)

His appearance is that of a 25ish year old looking young man, dressed in black clothes of differing styles. Apparantly a style for each day in the month. A few things that remains the same though, are a golden chain belt, and masterfully engraved, black bracers. The latter are often hidden under his sleeves, though.
The design on the bracers only becomes apparant on close study and appears to be a cornucopia of arcane symbols for restraint, control and containment, interwoven with great care.
His eyes are either green, grey, brown, or blue, depending on the light surrounding him. Always the one that make them seem darker. His hair is copper reddish, the exact nuance always in contrast to the light. Darker under the light. Lighter in the dark.
His accent seems to range from pure Oxford to drawling dixie.

Occasionally, he will sport extra-human features, such as a five o'clock shade that is actually made up of a myriad of tiny spikes; spikes might actually grow out of his back or scalp; or his meticulously manicured nails will become claws. These are all warning signs that his demonic side is rearing its ugly head.
You should probably run, when that happens.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO NOSES: He doesn't have a scent of his own and scents he picks up from the environment become subdued.

Don't take off his belt and bracers. It won't be pretty. He will stop being pretty. It will end in tears and gnashing of teeth.

He has grown to be quite adept at manipulating shadowstuff and the perceptions of people around him.

So begins...

The man approaching the castle from the forest was quite obviously not dressed for trekking. The black suit he wore looked more at home in the flash- and lime-light of a red carpet show with wall-to-wall celebrities and paparrazi. The designer sun glasses, their lenses tinted towards dark purple reinforced this look, at odds with his present location. He wasn't leaving footprints that matched the mirror-shine polished leather shoes, though. The moss under him gave way in a pattern that suggested something a bit larger than human feet. With three forward toes and two spurs from the heel. Given the distance to anything from the castle, he had obviously been walking for a while, but showed no sign of exertion.
He paused outside the castle and took a while to study the windows, battlements and the entrance.

He himself was - or at least appeared to be - 6'1" tall and of a build that suggested regular trips to the gym and healty eating. The coppery red hair was a light tone in the shadow of the castle. He raised a hand to his face and lowered the sunglasses just a fraction of an inch, allowing the green eyes to look over the thin frames. As he readjusted the sunglasses, something made of hard leather was just visible under the sleeve; a bracer perhaps?

Riley had been shopping over seas as she returned on foot, she came in from behind to see a man standing outside the castle, she had always had a colt in her pocket. Pulling it out and cocking it, "Don't move a muscle" she said "What are you doing here?" she asked, not moving anything but her lips.

The man froze in the pose he had been in, when Riley arrived. He stood very, very still. He even stopped breathing. Then he exhaled softly and chuckled.

"You know, I can't stop my heart, so I can't really comply with that command. Heart's a muscle, you know. And even if I could, it wouldn't end well. There're consequences to stopping the blood coursing in my veins," he said with a smirk.

Apart from his chuckle, his resumed breathing and his talking, he had not moved at all.

Riley pressed the barrel of the gun to his back as she moved to face him, the gun trailing his body until it arrived at his chest, when she finally saw who it was, she froze. "Ru?" she asked, her mouth gapping, "I thought you died" she added, dropping the gun, but not her guard.

He grinned sheepishly. Slowly raising a hand in the most non-threatening way he could manage and brushed through his hair, using the arm that would interfere the least with her gun.

"Uh, seems you have the advantage, good Lady. I, uh, don't have your name present. Sorry," he answered and lowered the hand again. With a cocky grin and eyes rolling to the right, he added, "There's just been so many...".

He inclined his head slightly and met her gaze over the frame of his sunglasses with eyes that changed to brown as a reaction to the ambient light and shade. The cocky grin was still firmly on his face.

"A little help, perhaps, with the name-business?"

There was a glint of teasing in his eyes. The hair had shifted towards the darker end of the coppery red colour.

Riley still couldn't believe he was alive. "Well Ru, it's been a while" she said with a grin, shooting the gun into the air, scarring all the birds in the trees above.

"I could leave you guessing, or show you the scar from our last party." she said lifting the corner of her shirt, revealing a long, jagged scar. "We were play fighting when you got seriously into it and broke a bottle of holy water" she smirked and started walking inside, "If you need a place to stay, we have some room left" she added, waiting in the doorway.

The cocky grin melted into one of genuine amusement and then morphed further into a warm smile.

"Oooh, Ry-Vee... Wow. It's been ages. Literally," he grinned and relaxed his stance. His eyes drank in her comely shape with obvious appreciation.

He lowered the sunglasses a bit and gave the castle wall a quick once-over glance. Paying attention to the details, would tell Riley that his eyes expertly sought out various paths of possible handholds as well as one or two likely places to hide a CCTV camera or two. He looked back at her. The eyes briefly shifting towards gray, before turning blue again. He licked his teeth behind closed lips.

"So, this is your kip. Looks more than halfway decent. Got the usual hauntings and flauntings set-up, I suppose. Hug?" he asked and raised his arms slightly to accomodate the expected permission.

"I mean, before the rest of the party arrives, summoned by that shot, I mean? It wouldn't be like you to be all alone, so someone else is here, right?"

With, or without the hug, he would follow her inside to meet the others.

Riley's eyes went from their normal white to a cheerful color of yellow, she ran towards him and hugged him, then gave him a small kiss on the cheek. "They know if I needed something, I would call" she added with a smile and walked inside, "We do have a few people living here already" she added, looking back at him, knowing her sister would notice the eye change.


Kirsten smiled and giggled at his comment, "Eggs are my favorite" she added and took a forkful into her mouth. "A documentary on wolves" she said with a wink as she swallowed the eggs.

He stood for a moment, eyes following her, as she went forth, then he grinned - mostly at himself - and followed her into the castle proper. He took the time to admire architechtural details and whatever pieces of art were present. He folded up the sunglasses and put them in the chest pocket of his blazer.

"A few people," he ventured, as they went further inside. "That could explain why the surrounding countryside is, or was, crawling with des chasseurs. Hunters. I stumbled across a small party some five'ish miles from here, going in the wrong direction. Or right direction, as it were. Away from here. Couldn't really let them be. I made something beautiful out of them. Just like that time in Kâmpŭchéa. Then I tidied up, of course, and buried the bits. Nothing calls more hunters like grisly displays of guts for guirlandes, as you know" he prattled on, seemlessly slipping into French a few times.

Cocking an eyebrow, he continued. "One of these few people wouldn't happen to be that scrumptious sister I heard so much about, last time? If she's here, I might as well walk out the door now. Coming between the Venom sisters would be only slightly less of a bad move, than being...oh, say on the Messines-Wytschaete ridge somewhere around June 7th 1917."

He was practically grinning from ear to ear, when he spoke and showed no hurry to leave at all, regardless of how she may reply.
Then he stopped dead and gazed at a particular painting over a door, framed by the ubiquitous velvet curtains.
His tone shifted to somewhere between anger and envy.

"You utter and complete ... You got that one?! It was reported burnt by the Nazis, wasn't it? And there it is, just like that. Like it's nothing really special."

He raised his arms partly, then let them drop to his sides. He muttered something under his breath and by the tone, it wasn't particularly nice words. Fortunately, they were too garbled for anyone to hear their meaning.

A couple of heart beats later, and he was smiling again.

Kirsten finished up her breakfast, saving the juice for last, she set the plate aside and stood up, "Well well well, I wondered when I'd be seeing you" she said looking at Ru. "How much my sister missed you" she addded, earning a not so great look from Riley, ignoring her sister. "You know, she once almost cried" she added.

Riley lunged forward at her sister, knocking her to the ground, causing her to shift into a wolf, pushing her sister off, sending her flying to the stair case, Kirsten's left arm had snapped in the shift, causing her to yelp in pain, rolling over, she lept over her sister, sprinting on all three legs to her bedroom.

Riley felt extremely bad for what she had done and raced out of the castle.

Daniel smiled at first but when the fight started he was too slow to act, as he saw Kirsten bolt off he went after her and shift in his werewolf form not giving a single growl to the others. As Daniel got by Kirsten he sit by her and lick her cheek softly "I'm sorry I was to slow" he said softly while holding her gently "your arm does need to be set otherwise it won't heal correctly" he said softly and kiss her on top of her head

He was about to speak, when the fight broke out. Rather than try to interfere in any way, he just found a nicely sturdy wall to lean against and watch the spectacle. It seemed to be over even before he was comfortably settled in, though. He sighed and shook his head.

"Nice to meet you, too," he said to the empty space where Kirsten had been sitting. "At least the castle still stands."

He looked around and started rummaging through cupboards and drawers to find something to prepare for breakfast.
Apparantly unable to decide on something to make, he was still picking and choosing five minutes later.

Kirsten whimpered, "Under the bed I have cast equipment, and clippers so you can shave my fur inorder to apply the cast." she said and looked at him, she then sat closer to the bed so he could apply the cast.


Riley sat on top of the castle, feeling sorry for herself, something Vampires don't normally do.

(I apologize for the short posts it's early in the morning)

Daniel nodded and got the clippers and careful started to shave her fur on her arm as he hold her ever so gently "what just happened there?" Daniel asked and kiss her head and let her speak then set her arm while tightening his grip on her if she might want to escape "shhh it's alright love" he said and apply the cast as he softly lick the top of her head to calm her down a bit

(no problem)

Rubrec eventually found and began preparing some bacon and eggs, added some French Toast to the mix and set up his plate, while making some tea. Eventually, he sat down and began eating, then he stopped mid-mouthful and sighed.

He sat down the fork and rose from the table, looking around and followed the route Riley had taken, pausing several times and studying the carpets and floors, as he went along. He followed whatever traces he was detecting out of the castle and stood looking in various directions, until he looked up and smirked mirthlessly.

Rolling his shoulders, flexing his fingers and finally twisting his neck to both sides so far that it creaked loudly, he crouched down and jumped up against the wall, catching hold of the handholds he had spotted earlier. Huffing slightly, he started climbing up the walls. The nice shoes flickered, faded and were replaced by wide feet with three forward toes and two spurs. The toes twisted and curved to find better purchase against the wall. Slowly, he neared the roof.

"You know, we did a bit of climbing last we met too, remember?" he asked between huffs, as he climbed.

Riley smirked as he reached the top, "Had you let me bite me you could get here faster" she said with a smirk, "And you wouldn't need to eat, only drink" she added, noticing she hadn't drank in a few weeks. "Speaking of which I need to drink sometime soon" she said, aloud, sighing and leaning on her palms.

Kirsten howled in pain a little as he applied pressure, when he put the cast on, she did her best to applie pressue so she could walk normally.

Whistling softly between clenched teeth, he bounded up the last bit and landed on a nook on the roof, reclining like a Roman on a couch.

"Oh, Ry-Vee, while I'm not an expert on the matter, as far as I can tell from the inherited memories of my Apokalyte parent, consuming our blood doesn't go well. Firstly, there's supposedly a risk you'd conceive with a bastard spawn. It certainly was what my sorceress mother got in return for her troubles. Though, since I'm only a halfblood, I guess that'd make it a quarter-blood? Anyway, secondly, and this is definitely a gray area for me, as I'm not deeply acquainted with Sangvivore digestive systems, you'd be in danger of blowing up, as Apokalyte blood is about as voltatile as nitroglycerin, when it stops moving. And sommun as perty as you blowin' up'd be a real damn shame dahlin'," he said, tone and intonation shifting towards a Southernish drawl at the end.

"Ah was gonna tell you, lahst tahme. Things jus' got outta hand after that business with the vial and when that excorsist came bursting through the window screaming bloody murder, or whatever it was. Ah, good times, good times," he continued, the drawl seeping out of his voice again, as he approached The Queen's English.

"So, you missed me?" he asked with a faintly different timbre in his voice.

Kirsten smirked and shook her head, "I'm fine, besides I'm full now" she said, licking his muzzle to reassure him she was okay. Looking over the rest of her newly formed, family? She noticed Clara was outside with the baby.

Riley watched Clara and the child from the top of the castle, her gaze shifting from Clara to Ru, "I guess you can say I did" she said with a snicker. "Did you miss me?" she asked, as if she already knew the answer.

"Hm?" Rubrec said and appeared to be dozing off, even if his reclining was a bit of a forced pose. He had noticed her eyes on something on the ground. He couldn't see what it was from his current position, though, so he shifted and climbed up higher to get a better look.

"What is it?" he asked and craned his neck. He stared down at the the cat, the wolf, and the baby, and frowned.

"Strange. I get a sudden urge to destroy that boy's life. Is he human?"

He left the question unanswered.

Kirsten nodded and laid down on the couch.

Riley looked back up at the sky and nodded at Ru, "Yep, as human as human can be" she answered and shrugged. "But I can't drink an innocents blood, I took an oath. she added, not regretting it normally.

Rubrec leaned back and gazed up in the sky, just like Riley did, sighing heavily.

"Oaths are the worst, aren't they? To be honest and to set the child's obvious guards at ease, I will fight this urge of mine, because it's clearly the family business that wants me to, and as you know, I've kinda been trying to get out of it, uh, ever since the Storming of the Bastille," he said in a slightly louder voice.

He fell silent and just lay there, gazing up in the sky and seeming quite content with doing just that for a minute or so. Then he snickered.

"I might just pop around and have something terribly embarassing happen at certain junctures in his life, you know. Like the first day at school, graduation, proms and such," he chuckled softly. "Just to make his existence a little bit miserable."

(I predict a long post next, with quite a bit of backstory, be warned ;) )

Clara jolted awake, she had drifted off in spite of herself.
"Oh Xavier. . .He's wonderful." Clara smiled up at Daniel before shifting into human form again and picking up the still sleeping boy and standing by Daniel.
"Who is that man? Up there with Riley?" Clara asked sideways to Daniel.

Riley smirked, "Yeah, that wasn't a good day" she added and leaned back even more, to where she was laying down, her legs bent over the side of the castle. "We can be the embarassing aunt and uncle" she added while laughing her musical laugh. Her eyes turning a dark color.
