Genesis 4:19-24 King James Version (KJV):
19
And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
20 And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.
21 And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.
22 And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.
23 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.
24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold...


Lamech ibn Methusael's name (written in Hebrew as למך and pronounced in English as LAY-mik) means "to make low" or to bring down, to overthrow or conquer. It also insinuates the act of being demoted to a lower social status, perhaps that of a murderer or exile who was banished from their homeland in the desert. Lamech definitely fits the description of someone who has been condemned to eternal damnation for sacrilegious reasons, most notably for his polygamous lifestyle and acts of murder. Lamech has also been condemned for blasphemies against Yahweh Elohim and perversions against the sacrificial altar, where he is rumored to have consumed fresh living blood from a human skull for ritualistic purposes.


Physical Description:
Lamech ibn Methusael appears to be a fair-skinned humanoid adult male of average size with light brown to dark black shoulder-length hair, often having one or two nicely braided strands which hang down loosely over his mildly wavy mop. Lamech ibn Methusael also has a clean shaven dark-haired goatee which varies in length depending on how well it's kept. On average he stands about 6-feet-tall weighing only 160-pounds when he's not wearing anything. Lamech has dark brownish yellow eyes, though at times they may appear to be shining gold in the moonlight. He has straight clean white teeth and a well kept hygiene, often described as having the aroma of essential oils as opposed to body odors or fragrant soaps. Lamech is often noted as being rather young to middle-aged, somewhere between the ages of 25 and 35 without any outward signs of ailment or blemish. Lamech has the physique of an 18-year-old male athlete with ripped abs and softly toned muscles, which also makes him appear younger than he actually is. His normal garb is usually purple or indigo, brown and green, crimson or pitch black and of courtier quality.

Lamech ibn Methusael is actually 20,000 to 15,000 years old. The exact date of his birth is unknown, but Lamech is the sixth generation of Cain and is said to have been born on the night of a red moon. Lamech is an immortal of sorts, being that he is now ageless and appears much younger than he actually is. However, he can change his appearance as he also has the ability to shapeshift into the horrible revenant he truly is. At such times, Lamech appears to be extremely ancient and undead, more like a rotten animated corpse than a living human being. Those who live to tell the tale would describe Lamech as a vampire or demonic entity who haunts the living, luring young beautiful virgins and lost wandering travellers to their gruesome deaths. He appears as a skeletal figure with long straight thin stringy white hair, bloody fangs and sharp long nails. He is covered in rags and torn clothing, and "the stench of rigor mortis and fresh dirt" lingers around him. In this nightmarish form, Lamech is comparable in appearance to the Cryptkeeper rather than the oftly stereotyped image of a seductive handsome young prince. Despite his undead appearance, however, Lamech's corpse is said to be physically stronger than average with a frightfully powerful deathgrip. His corpse can hover or fly very quickly without the need for wings, as his raggedy hooded cloak flows behind him in the wind as he flies. Lamech is also impervious to fire and flames, making him impossible to incinerate or burn.

Lamech ibn Methusael has many other shapeshifting forms as well, some less human and more animal than others. Lamech is rumored to be able to also turn himself into something like a vetala or baital, similar to the aforementioned physical description above. This bat-like hybrid grey corpse has pointed ears and features and is said to hang upside down from the branches of trees using its bat-like wings and talons to snatch up unweary victims. Lamech can also turn into a giant prehistoric dire wolf, twice the size of normal wolves. Besides having qualities similar to a vampire, witch or zombie, Lamech also resembles a werewolf in that he can shapeshift into a number of different wolf-like forms. This ranges from being one regular giant wolf to a whole pack of wolves, or from a single regular tiny bat to a whole cloud of flying bats. Lamech can also turn into a large rat, a small house cat, a night owl, a spider or even a nest of deadly poisonous spiders. He has also been known to turn into a crow or raven, a scorpion, a jackal, a vulture, snake or centipede. Lamech (sometimes refered to as L'mek or Lam'kh) has even been known to turn into common elements such as smoke, fire, shade, fog or mist. Also because of his tantalizing psyche abilities, Lamech can hypnotize individuals who have a lower willpower into seeing things which may not even exist at all.


Personality & Demeanor:
Lamech ibn Methusael is usually seclusive and perhaps even a bit antisocial. He is described as living in total isolation, preferring the wilderness and loneliness of the swamps, forests and mountains over the noisy cities and vibrancy of urban civilizations. Lamech is a wildman by nature, preferring to live in the shadows by day while becoming more active during a rain storm or at night when it's foggy. He communicates telepathically with creatures of the night and often tends to have a wild look in his eyes, as if his mind has been obscured. However, those who meet him say that his first impressions are always great. Lamech gives off the impression that he is both noble and charming, a well-mannered gentleman with a romantic persona. He has a very deep manly voice that is both soft and bold, rough but gentle. Lamech portrays himself as a tall, dark, handsome young man who knows how to win a lady's heart. He is respectful and kind, courteous and courageous, a true nobleman through and through. That is, when he's not feeding and raping, killing people and bathing in their blood. For despite his seemingly good nature, Lamech has a very sinister and darker personality which he hides deep inside. That's because Lamech is also a lunatic, helpless against the phases of the moon's lunar cycles. He has been cursed with symptoms similar to that of porphyria or lycanthropy, which sometimes causes him to act very spooky or strange.


Equipment & Abilities:
Lamech ibn Methusael has many abilities which could be hard to specify. To label him strictly as a vampire, witch, demon, ghost, zombie or a werewolf, or even as a crossbreed of these things, would be to misunderstand what he truly is. Lamech is none of these things, and yet he has traits which might be similar to all of them. To put it simply, Lamech is an abomination. He was a normal human being who was cursed by God to live and suffer the price of immortality. Despite his appearances and demeanor, Lamech has no heart and is incapable of feeling love. He can never grow old. He can never get sick. He can never die, unless God allows it. Suicide itself is beyond Lamech's reach, as he is already undead. That means he can never get re-married or have more children, since all of his seeds are infertile and produce stillborn offsprings more hideous than himself. Lamech can never set foot on Holy ground. He cannot enter a church or kneel to pray, since God has forsaken him. Lamech is also cursed with a strange phobia. Although holy weapons and religious items have no real effect on him, Lamech is frightened away by such things as crosses and eucharists. He is afraid of holy scriptures, holy water, holy oils and anything that is Christian in nature. Even the very mention of Jesus Christ's holy name causes Lamech to hiss and throw a fit.

Image


Lamech's tantrums are caused not by pain or suffering, but by the fear of God, instilled upon him many centuries ago when he lost his mortal soul. Lamech is also not a big fan of the daylight. The sun's rays actually have no effect on him at all, they just make him less powerful. He is less likely to shapeshift or do magical tricks during the daylight hours from sunrise to sunset. Lamech is most powerful at midnight, especially on moonless nights when it's very dark. Blood moons are especially significant also, since Lamech was born during a red moon. Blood moons usually occur at dusk just before nightfall. During a red moon, Lamech is at his most powerful potential. Contrary to popular beliefs, however, the full white moon is not a friend to Lamech or his powerful abilities. He has no control over his actions when the full moon is high in the sky. Often times, the full white moon will drive him completely mad. He is even said to have helplessly murdered one of his own wives during a full white moon, an action which torments his memories even to this day. Lamech becomes even more hopelessly psychotic during a blue moon, right before it rains. However, during a honey moon or yellow moon, Lamech retains some of his willpower and magical abilities.

Lamech ibn Methusael is immune to silver, garlic, rosemary and wolfsbane. In fact, these items have the opposite effect on him as Lamech is attracted to these things. Superstitious faith in such things is of no help to his victims. Lamech can not be warded off by fire, candles, smoke or mirrors. He is also immune to magic, which is strange as Lamech himself has magic abilities. He can summon darkness, disappear into thin air, or hypnotize his victims just by making eye contact. Lamech is telepathic as well, with the ability to communicate with most animals by way of thought. Lamech can not communicate with horses, however, nor read their minds. Horses have a sixth sense and ability to see Lamech for what he is, which often causes horses to buck and go crazy around him, much to their rider's dismay. Lamech can summon and control certain animals, including humans who have been suckered into a blood bond with him. This is because Lamech's blood has magical powers of its own. Lamech's bite is venomous, often rotting the flesh of his victims over time as the poison enters their bloodstream. Even a tiny scratch or bite from Lamech could be fatal within a matter of days. However, by consuming Lamech's blood, his victims can also become immortal bloodsuckers themselves with magical abilities similar to his own. Those whom he wishes to embrace with his blood will become full-fledged vampires, or sometimes even werewolves. At that point they will die, but will then be resurrected as the undead. Lamech's embrace is a painful experience which causes death, dementia and elucid visions or sounds. This is part of the transmutation process, as Lamech's new minions will no longer be human once the transformation is complete.

Lamech ibn Methusael is of course much more powerful than anyone he embraces with his own blood. This brood of the undead will only have a taste of his power, and only some of his special abilities. Silver still effects his minions, as does the full white moon. However, unlike Lamech, his minions are also immune to religious superstitions and holy weapons such as crosses, holy books, eucharists and holy water. Their shapeshifting abilities will be limited, unlike Lamech's, but they will be completely immune to priests and churches. Lamech himself has been known to fly or crawl up vertical walls, to hang from ceilings and walk upside down. Contrary to popular belief, magic has no effect on Lamech whatsoever. Not even his father or grandfather before him was as powerful as Lamech, which is peculiar amongst his kind to say the least. Lamech can never be smoked out, drowned in a lake or hung from the gallows. He does not require oxygen or air to breathe. His minions can be killed with a stake through the heart, or with silver bullets, but Lamech himself is heartless and immune to such things. Indeed, the only surefire way to dispose of Lamech is through decapitation. Beheading seems to be his only weakness, as removing Lamech's head will kill him instantly. This is supposedly the only way to get rid of him for good.

Lamech ibn Methusael is strong enough to flip chariots and fast enough to dodge bullets. He is capable of instant regeneration and his wounds heal rather quickly when injured. Lamech is immune to poison and venom. He is already undead, therefore he does not require solid foods to survive. Being immortal, he is immune to starvation apart from the hunger and thirst for flesh and blood. Lamech requires fresh living blood in order to increase his magical powers. Old dry or coagulated blood is of no use or benefit to him. He prefers the blood of young virgins, as their blood is the most vital. Lamech can also consume animal blood and other types of human blood, however, without much prejudice. The more he consumes, the stronger he gets both magically and physically. But although magic itself can not effect Lamech, divination in the form of prayer seems to repel him or keep him away, especially when the name of Jesus Christ is spoken verbally towards him. Lamech therefore has many powerful abilities that make him almost invincible to most forms of weapons, poison or magic. Lamech also weilds a sword and is said to be quite proficient in many styles of combat. His bloodline is credited with the invention of the first bladed weapons of war, so it only makes sense that Lamech himself would be a master of such things, having known them since even before ancient times.

Lamech does not need to consume blood to be truly immortal, unlike his minions who will simply shrivel up and die if they are deprived of fresh blood daily. Lamech will not die without blood, but he will turn into stone for a very long time if he doesn't consume blood regularly. Lamech has also been known to induce this stone-like state upon himself at will, turning himself into a heavy statue which can exist almost indefinitely. In this stone form, Lamech can not move. However, he can survive even if the statue is cracked or broken. Breaking the head completely off the statue will kill Lamech, but even a single tiny drop of blood on his frozen lips will cause Lamech to break through the statue and be resurrected. This may require a blood ritual from outside influences, as Lamech is completely immobile and incapable of doing anything while he is in rock form. Any blood he consumes has a direct link to the host, allowing Lamech to know their thoughts and memories. He also has incredibly powerful senses, being that his eyesight, sense of smell and hearing are supernatural and far above average. This too is a curse from God, despite its connotation.

Lamech ibn Methusael has one rather ironic weakness or ability. His curse can be lifted and he can finally rest in peace, but only if he is kissed on the lips by a mortal woman who truly loves him. This act of pure love must be consciously given by a fair maiden's own freewill, meaning it can not come through any sort of love potions or hypnotic magic. Lamech cannot lift this curse by methodical means, nor by deception, in other words. The curse can only be lifted by a woman of pure intentions who honestly has a heart for him. But since Lamech is quite realistically a monster and a lunatic, it makes loving him seem almost impossible, as the kiss must come from a truly compassionate lady who already knows Lamech's nature but yet is willing to accept it anyway. So even though it might appear easy for Lamech to simply woo fair maidens with his charms and good looks, it proves much more difficult when they see his decrepit form and discover his sinister nature. That's when they often respond with fear and hate, which is the opposite of true love. So despite the potential for peace, it seems unlikely that Lamech's curse will ever be lifted.

Historical Background:
Lamech the son of Methusael, sometimes called Lemek the Elder (pr. LAY-mik or LEI-mik), exists from a time before writing was invented. Lamech or Lam (also called L'mek or Lam'kh) is an Antediluvian being who was born before the Great Deluge of Noapishtim, placing his origin some time between 20,000 and 15,000 years ago. According to fragments from a collection of clay cuneiform tablets referred to as the Book of Blood (now lost completely), Lamech was a man who was cursed by Yahweh Elohim to live for all eternity. Lamech's mother was Edna from the house of Methusael, his father. Lamech's parents were Cainites, and Lamech himself is recorded to be a sixth-generation descendant of Cain's bloodline.

Lamech is believed to have been born in Enoch, also known as Old Uruk (modern Warka east of the Euphrates), in a land that was once more fertile than it is today. Lamech was said to be one of the great kings of Shinar, and a devote follower of the Sumerian pantheon, even becoming deitified as a god-king himself according to some accounts. However, his true story actually begins way before these events. Lamech was actually born around 20,000 years ago (in what is today modern Warka) in the then nameless land of nomads. It was sometimes called the Land of Nod located East of Eden in some ancient texts. Shinar (better known as ancient Sumer) did not exist yet, nor did any of the Babylonian city-states which came later. At the time when Lamech was born, Enoch was the only city in the world. It was a prehistoric city which pre-dates the Sumerian civilization. This land was located on the outskirts of Eden, and although it wasn't as luscious or as desirable as the central garden in the middle of Eden, it was still nevertheless located in a strategically defensive valley on the eastern side of the Euphrates river. It was at this location where Lamech's progenitor Cain is said to have built the small fortified settlement of Enoch, often refered to today as the world's very first city.

The fabled Book of Blood was allegedly dug up in New Uruk around 3500BCE by some Sumerian priests who were able to translate them. But those tablets went missing during the Crusades, along with any historical records from before the Great Flood which might add credence to Lamech's origins. All that remains is the Tale of the Knight Brothers, which depicts Lamech as a monstrous type of cursed individual subspecies called homo sapiens malevolence, something which they say is more powerful and yet different to H. sapiens sapiens (humans), H. sapiens sanguins (vampires), H. sapiens lycanes (werewolves), and H. sapiens zombeze (zombies). Lamech ibn Methusael, recalls Jacob Knight in one epic tale:

"He (referring to Lamech) is not a demon, if that makes you feel any better. But he's not just a warlock either, I'm afraid. He is a man, human, and a mortal. But his name should not be spoken so carelessly by those who are powerless to deal with him. He is an abomination to God Most High, and it is God's divine power which we fight against here. For he (Lamech) has been cursed to walk amongst the living for all eternity. Even many vampires, werewolves and magicians claim lineage to his bloodline and are subservient to his (Lamech's) very name. Do not underestimate such a heartless individual."

It's not public knowledge how Lamech's bloodline came to exist. Some say that his progenitor Qayin (also called Cain) was the first vampire, and the husband of Lilu (also called Lilith) who was considered to be the first witch, or in some cases, a demoness. Cain bore Enoch, who bore Irad, who bore Mehujael, who bore Methusael, who was the father of Lamech, the progenitor of many subspecies. In the time before the Great Flood of Noah, it is said that Lamech's bloodline was ageless and immortal. Lamech's race were worshipped as gods on the earth, or as kings who had completely dominated the human race. Lamech was a ruler in Enoch, from a time when human beings were herded or even harvested as slaves. Humans were regarded, not as sentient creatures with a conscious intelligence, but as living batteries who could be farmed or traded as livestock. It was a very dark time period in human history, a time when human women were treated as little more than objects of sexual desire. Women were often enslaved, raped and beaten while their husbands and children were either murdered or harvested like sheep. Lamech's bloodline was cruel and merciless. It was literally a hellish nightmare for mankind, as humans lived in total fear and subservience to the gods above them. It would continue this way for thousands of years.

Temples and statues were erected in honor of Lamech and his progeny. He had a throne and bed chamber made of pure solid gold, and was considered to have riches and wealth beyond imagination or comparison. But it was never destined to last. Soon the floods came, and the rivers turned to blood. Lamech's kingdom was wiped out around 10,000BCE during the Great Deluge, leaving Lamech and his treasures buried beneath the sands of time. There they would remain dormant for many centuries upon centuries, until eventually Lamech's progeny was all but forgotten. It was a case of global amnesia.

Then one day in 3500BCE, some ancient Sumerian priests in Uruk unintentionally discovered the Book of Blood and translated it. They also dug up what they thought to be a statue of a god-king sitting on his throne, and so they placed the statue inside their giant temple monument located in Babylon, where a great priest-king named Cush ordered the statue to be erected so that the god-king (Lamech) could observe and oversee the construction of a massive ziggurat that Cush had started. This ziggurat was later known as the Tower of Babel in some myths, and it would take many generations to build. Cush's son Nimrod would continue the project, building the tower to even new heights before he died. After his death, Nimrod's wife Semiramis erected a statue of King Nimrod next to the statue of Lamech inside of Babylon's great ziggurat, where they were both worshipped and idolated as the gods of the sun and moon.

Semiramis' actions must have upset Lamech, however, as strange things started happening shortly afterwards. One day, the statue of Nimrod fell over and shattered into several pieces, crushing Semiramis and many of the temple's priests beneath its rubble. This was believed to be a bad omen, and soon the Tower of Babel itself would come crumbling down. Hundreds of slaves, planners, builders and laboring elephants were crushed beneath the falling stones. The ruins left behind by this event can still be seen today, located in the desert which had once been home to one of the greatest civilizations ever in human history. Another generation passed as people spread out across the earth, forming different languages and customs until eventually, Egypt replaced Babylon as the center of the world. Lamech's statue was forgotten as it lay dormant, hidden within the ruins for centuries. Then one day, Amraphel became the king of Shinar.

One day it is said, Amraphel was strolling through the land and surveying the ancient city when he discovered Lamech's statue standing perfectly amongst the ruins of the former temple. Amraphel was a selfish ruler whose only desire was to increase his personal gain. He conspired with four other kings, and together they performed a blood ritual which awakened Lamech from his stone-like stasis. Immediately he took a bloodbath and started feasting, causing the five kings to lock all the priests into the chamber with him. Lamech killed all of them, and their screams were terrible. Lamech then proceeded to try and attack the five kings, but King Chedorloamer pulled out the Book of Blood and kept him at bay until Lamech settled down. Demanding a reason for why they had awakened him, the five kings replied that they wanted Lamech's help in establishing a new empire, of which he would be the emperor. The five kings would kneel before him, offering him five young virgins as a gift to satisfy his appetite. Lamech was appeased by their worship, and agreed to help the five kings establish an empire. And so it happened.

Lamech embraced the five kings, turning them all into monsters like himself. There was much raiding, killing and conquering as the five kings established the world's very first empire in all of human history. Lamech was now the first emperor, with King Chedorloamer as his second in command. Lamech's empire was short-lived (again), however, as the Hebrew king Abraham led the human rebellion against the five kings. Abraham stormed the enemy army by night and routed them out. There was darkness and fire, blood and steel. The battle lasted until dawn, when Lamech's progeny, being preoccupied by the raging battle, were unwillingly turned into pillars of salt as soon as the sunrise appeared over the horizon. Abraham had outsmarted the five kings and brought their empire to its knees, giving the rebel kingdoms new hope and a fighting chance at survival. It was then that Melkizedek the king of Salem met with King Abraham in the Valley of Shiddim and blessed him as the priest-king of God Most High.

Lamech ibn Methusael retreated into the shadows once again. These events were recorded in the Book of Blood which was retrieved by Abraham and presented to Melkizedek shortly before they went their separate ways. The book was treasured as a well guarded secret and was kept hidden for over a thousand years. It wouldn't re-surface again until the Dark Ages during the Bubonic Plague, when two young Knight Brothers ended up with the book in their possession. As for Lamech, he disappeared after his empire came crashing down and all memory of his existence faded into darkness.

Until one day...

So begins...

Linus Trucidabunt walked past most of the usual openings people used, for the winery or just to get down to the beach, and walked for a bit. He was still silent. He didn't look at Carmen, though he could hear her behind him.

Sol was no longer in the sky and past the horizon. As the last shadows of the day turned into night, Linus chose his entrance and ducked into it. At first it was pitch black. Eventually the slow curve of the tunnel was dimly lit by a bioluminescent moss. It took a minute or two to get here. Linus walked with big steps, though gentle.

What if she wasn't safe?

Carmen hesitated before she decided to ultimately follow Linus into the tunnel. Thank goodness for her sensical boot choice!

Linus Trucidabunt continued for about ten minutes in silence through the dimly lit tunnel. Down a short set of stairs. To the left at a dual fork, then through the middle when three ways presented themselves. There they sloped down, down, down, in a wiggledy way that wasn't quite a spiral. Another fork where Linus went right, a narrow part off a curve that didn't seem like they were supposed to be taking it that again plunged into pitch darkness.

It was while they were squeezing through, the rock absorbing almost all the sound of their voices, that he shot back at Carmen, "You're not the Don Dellevon, are yeh?"

Linus Trucidabunt wasn't too sure about that, but laughed all the same.

The crack opened up into another hallway split three ways. Linus went left. It curved down into darkness. The sound of crashing waves grew louder and louder. At the end of the curve were six very tall, very shallow steps down.

"Watch yer step," Linus warned Carmen. He picked down them. They led to a tunnel that pitched harshly downward. It was brighter towards the end, where it was the most damp. If the sun was out, it would have been a little dancing circle where the tunnel opened up onto the beach.

Linus did not continue down the tunnel. Instead he turned into a crack in the wall that couldn't be seen until you were basically inside of it. It opened up immediately to another tunnel that pitched sharply down and towards the sounds of the sea - though the crashing sounded a little more echo-y.

Linus Trucidabunt hopped down the last single step into a small cavern occupied by two pools and a strange looking ship. The first pool he wouldn't go near if you paid him. It was the force of the water rushing in. Death trap. A good trap, for intruders. A death trap. It was the only apparent way in and out of the cavern aside the secret crack he had gone through. That's not the way they would be going.

The second pool was still, fed water from what seemed to be an impossibly deep pool that must have, somehow, lead out to the ocean. Every now and again the first pool splashed and spilled over, causing the vessel that bobbed there to sway.

Thick glowing moss dangled from the ceiling and climbed up the walls, lighting the room with an eerie dim.
