The Davenport Family

The Davenport Family

0 INK

Recent rumours are causing the villagers of Oakfield to accuse a local family of being monstrous creatures, whom they call "blood-suckers".

786 readers have visited The Davenport Family since RogueNinja created it.

Introduction




Image



ImageImage
The Davenport family are known throughout Oakfield, a small village not too far from their secluded woodland residence, but they are not thought of highly amongst the villagers. Rumour has it that they're "different" from normal people, which is why they choose to live far out in the woods. Through lack of sunshine, their skin is ghostly pale and they are often described as unbelievably beautiful, regardless of their age or gender. They never really enter the village besides to occasionally go to the local shops, and even then they are characterised as avoidant and wary of others, yet strangely delicate and graceful. Though they seem highly aware and suspicious of others most of the time, it is in fact the villagers who are deathly afraid of the family and with good reason.

A fair few individuals from Oakfield have claimed that the Davenports are responsible for the recent attacks on villagers; the victims have almost always been found strewn across the village, drained off all life. Puncture wounds are found either on the neck or wrists of the victim, which has lead people to label the family as "blood-suckers". With the increasing number of victims, the rumours spread further throughout the village. Though this has never actually been proved, several have come forward as witnesses claiming that they've seen shadowy figures in the night with glowing golden eyes; the figures are known to watch you from a few yards away, then disappear in an instance.



ImageImage
The Davenport family are in fact the blood-sucking creatures of myth and legend. However, they have neither admitted to it nor have they let any sort of real evidence leak out into the village, so no one can prove it. For their entire lives, no one suspected anything about their true nature, and their only fault was that they were separated from other villagers having never been given the opportunity to attend school or any sort of social events. Then one day, when their eldest daughter turned nineteen, the parents left the residence under mysterious circumstances. Without the guidance of parental authority, the children of the family grew careless in their actions; they weren't discrete about feeding from their victims and even less so about killing them. They left quite a mess, in fact, and that's around about when the villagers would whisper amongst themselves.

Their parents write them letters every now and then, sometimes containing money for them to live off of and parental advice. Through the help of the internet, the parents heard rumours of "blood-suckers" tormenting and murdering villagers in Oakfield. They grew worried that their children would reveal themselves to the world, even if not intentionally, which would not end well for them. The parents warned them to stay away from villagers; if they ever needed to enter the village, they must never stop to talk or wander around. They came up with a plan. If they hired "staff" who would also double as an endless food supply for their children, then the murders would stop and people would leave the situation alone after a while. However, with the rumours spreading further around the internet by villagers, it was hard to find staff who would willingly be sent to live with the Davenport family.

And so, with little choice, they stole four young individuals from their home lives and "changed" them, for lack of a better word. They became half-breeds. Still pretty much human but with the gifts of a vampire. After being told their duties, they were sent with one of the Davenport parent's personal servants to the house bound by shackles, and there they would be expected to remain for the foreseeable future.

Below are the characteristic and abilities of both Pureblood and Half-breed vampires.



Image
Enhanced physical attributes || This comes quite naturally to vampires. Their strength, speed and agility are at a level which humans cannot even begin to comprehend.

Intolerance for sunlight || It does not burn them to a crisp, but they will come out in a rash if they stay in direct sunlight for more than 12 hours.

Golden eyes || Purebloods have bright golden eyes, which they cover up with contact lenses to avert attention away from their unusual colour.

Specific gift || Each vampire has a unique gift (or power) which sets them apart from all others. These are usually quite powerful and specific to each person.

Shadow manipulation || This is a natural gift for vampires. The shadows bend to their will but some vampires will be more skilled than others.

Enhanced senses || They're gifted with super-human senses and reflexes, making them almost impossible to fool.

Compulsion || When staring into the eyes of an average human, a vampire can put them in a sort of trance where they believe any lie and carry out any action.

Pure beauty || Born from the most beautiful creatures, they inherit a sort of true and pure beauty; their physical appearance has no flaws to speak of.

Instant healing || They are quite easily able to heal any wound without scarring (though silver and wood injuries will not heal as fast and will leave a scar).

Image
Partially enhanced attributes || While they do not hold a candle to a Pureblood, they are still much stronger than any human.

Enhanced senses || Their sense of sight, smell, sound, touch and taste are all beyond that of a human. But they lack extraordinary reflexes.

Immunity to compulsion || Since they are not fully human, they are not at all affected by the tricks of even a Pureblood.

Coercion || They cannot fully compel others, but they can quite easily influence certain actions or ways of thinking to their own benefit.

Shadow manipulation || With enough practice, one might even become as skilled in shadow manipulation as a Pureblood.

Discomfort under sunlight || They do not come out in a rash but if they stay in direct sunlight for longer than 12 hours, they will start to feel dizzy and tingly.

Faster healing || They do not heal instantly but their recovery rate is still astonishing; the possibility of scars remaining are reduced.

Re: The Davenport Family

So I'm guessing, this rp has died before even starting. What a shame. I was really looking forward to rp something like this :c

Re: The Davenport Family

Where are all the people? Please don't tell me this has died even before starting off.

I wanna start so badly ><

Re: The Davenport Family

And there we go, all done with the angry drunk.

Re: The Davenport Family

Oh, awesome. c:

M'kay then, since all the characters have been submitted now, all we have to do is wait for everyone to finish their sheets and we can start posting.

Re: The Davenport Family

Okay then, I'll take you up on that. Kind of makes sense for the girls to get the female servants.

Re: The Davenport Family

M'kay, sounds good.

Also, if anyone would like to partner their character up with Violet, all you gotta do is say.

Re: The Davenport Family

If you're not going to set the partners, Keen and I plan to partner up with our characters ^-^

I don't think we necessarily have to have male and female pairings, right? Seeing we have bisexuals but also a homosexual, it's pretty much a good mix; making things more interesting~

Re: The Davenport Family

I hadn't planned on doing that myself, but yeah, that was the sort of idea I was heading towards. I thought it would be better if the Davenport characters chose their own "partners" in the roleplay.

Unless you had someone in mind? Then you can PM them or ask them here in advance if your characters can partner up.

I don't mind what you do, to be honest. It's not for me to decide. c'x

Re: The Davenport Family

@ RogueNinja
Do you plan on partnering up the vampires with the half-breeds? As in each vampire has its personal servant or something?

Re: The Davenport Family

I gotta say, I wasn't expecting the roles to be taken so quickly either. c'x But sure, I'll let you know if anything opens up.

Re: The Davenport Family

Damn, day after it's made and all spots are taken. I wanted to join this RP (Vampires are my thing). So if anyone decides not to join, would you be so kind as to PM me?

Re: The Davenport Family

Here are my FCs

Twin #1 Nase Hiroomi

Image

Twin #2 Oreki-Houtarou
Image

Re: The Davenport Family

Hey. c:

I don't mean to rush anyone (totally not that sort of GM), but if you could possibly get your characters in some time in the next few days, I'd really appreciate it. Even if it's only a WIP; I just need to know you're all still interested.

Re: The Davenport Family

Of course. c:

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: The Davenport Family

Oh, too bad then. =/
Well! Then let me have the remaining role, if you'd please~

My FC would be Karuta Roromiya.
Image

Re: The Davenport Family

At first, yeah. The second was reserved through PM.

Re: The Davenport Family

Didn't Scra just reserve Twin #1?

Re: The Davenport Family

Oh, I'm sorry. Both twins have been reserved for Scra; I would've updated the main page sooner but this website takes for ever to update pages when the URL is too large.

You could always take the remaining servant role, if you'd like? c:

Re: The Davenport Family

May I snatch away twin 2, please?
I don't know his FC yet, probably going to wait for Scra's FC c:

Re: The Davenport Family

Finished my character! Hope he gets accepted and hope everyone likes him :3
