Have you read through the Character Creation Guide at least once this season?hai! (yup!)
NAME: Yi ling Mao
DATE OF BIRTH: Winter of 1370
BIRTH COUNTRY: Nanking,China
EMPLOYER: Chinese Triad
POSITION: second in command- general (Aristocrat)

PRIMARY ERA: Reformation

What is the concept for your character?
A man dedicated to following his boss into hell fire but madly in love with someone who has defected from the organization. A man who now must choose between love and loyality.
What other eras will they be active in and what will their job be in each era?

Victorian Era - aristocrat
Expedition era - Aristocrat
Marauder era - Arisocrat
Golden - aristocrat
Legacy - aristocrat
What does your character look like?
A man who has not updated, changed and or given up his heritage and Chinese honor he still wears his white robes of purity and keeps his hair the way it was all those years ago. He sports black eyes and a pear like face, his hair goes down his back and is usually adorned with a classic headpiece from his era. He keeps his sword at his side unless he is forced to walk with the public...and on the rare situations he is he will sometimes switch to a white pair of slacks and a white shirt - his hair not being touched.
Where can we find your character when their story first begins?
Working for Jiang, as his third in command he recently got promoted, a man of respect and honor he looks to the future always forgetting over the years of the time Jiang forcefully turned him due to his social standings within the old emperors court in 1391, the anger having vanished all those years ago when he decided to make due with his situation. The attack on Nanking by a fellow sister sector made this all the easier.
What was life like for your character one year before their primary era?
His primary focus was keeping Zhao in line, as honorable as Zhao was he was often a rule breaker- him being the only thing keeping Zhao from not crossing any important rules. He is secretly in love with the man, his honor keeping him from acting on his feelings.
Who is someone from your characters past who influenced who they are today?
Jiang, who changed his whole live within a blink of an eye.
What does your character think their strongest and weakest traits are?
His weakest would be his inability to let life run freely, often using rules as his guide he has never in a sense been his own person- something that sometimes gets in the way. His strongest are his vampire abilities which he has honed to perfection in his 500 plus years of living with them.
What is something your character wants but does not have?
Zhao’s heart to be his.
What are their current short term and long term goals?
He has no idea what his long term goals are...maybe getting Zhao’s heart? His short term is simply to follow the rules Jiang gives him.
What is your character doing now to work toward their goals?
He is currently doing nothing to gain Zhao’s heart, his pride stopping him...but he is being Jians loyal follower and doing every order given to him.
What is something your character would never tell anyone about themselves?
That he would really love not being tied to the triad.
What is their strongest childhood memory?
His father showing him the butterflies in the garden of their long since lost home.

Welcome to the Wizarding World,
Yi Ling Mao!
I'm super interested in this vampire story line you're building!

It looks like even when you've lived more than a few lifetimes, your life can still be a complicated one. You might like to begin your story in Trouble Finds Me which takes place in Fiji, or by using one of the following thread ideas:

★ Jiang needs Yi Ling to check up on some affiliates in Shanghai.
★Looking for something rare to put in your home? Check out the deals at Amoud's Artefact Warehouse!
