Somnium by temiel Somnium by temiel
Raka, ~Arthulin wants me to tell you that the existence of this guy is totally your fault. You and your need for unofficial pairings. :XD:

So here we go with Character #3 from the whole Vampire Dark Ages thing. Gregory is a bit of a sweetheart, actually; very social, and cute, and charming- everything Claris is very, very much not. :giggle: Truth be told, they've only met once, so there's not a HUGE amount I can say about him beyond that he's a Toreador painter (surprise surprise), and he met Claris while Leland was presenting her to the vampire prince of London. Gregory was disarming, and apparently really digs Claris's dollface. She now has a wee bit of a crush on him. As such, I'm sure there shall be more of him eventually. :eyes:

Texture by `Princess-of-Shadows, brushes by ~green-eyed-butterfly.

Awww, Claris has a crush - charming guys are the worst - you can't help but get crushes on them!! Charisma is a enviable trait to posess!!

He ain't bad to look at as well :P :rofl:

HUHU, I know, right? :XD: Rian and Pirossa have this same problem. I swear, she's probably still crushing on that obnoxious Martian even after she and Farael get properly married. :giggle: OH CHARISMA.

Ah, i think i would probably have a little crush on him if i met him as well.....it's like a magnet!!
If someone managed to bottle charisma they would be the richest people in history!

Another great outfit and more great hair! xD I like how all the character's styles easily tell us the setting, era and such not. xD
He seems like a charming fellow

Hehe, thanks much! :D I've reeeeeeally been digging hair lately. Every now and then I get these periodic artistic fixations with certain body bits, and I think it might be hair's turn now. ;) And thanks about the era-appropriate clothing! I kind of do a stupid amount of research when there's actual history involved in the costume design... =P There's SO LITTLE VARIATION in clothing from this era, at least what I can dig up about it. People don't seem to start varying their styles until about a century later... :cries: Fortunately, after that it all gets a lot more interesting. :giggle:

Thank you! :D I definitely think he's awfully cute. I had to ask ~Arthulin how old he is, since he hadn't told me yet! Gregory is about 500 as of the 12th century, so he was turned during the late 600s, when England was still under Roman control.

MWAHAHAHA, this is the trouble, isn't it? :XD: Raka's been bugging me about how there TOTALLY NEEDS TO BE AN UNOFFICIAL COUPLE. And now there is. I don't think there was originally going to be this early on, but here we are. ;) I think Leland is more POETIC OMG, but Gregory is probably a lot more fun. :rofl:

Also, his full name is Gregorius of Camulodunum, which is just badass and made me giggle like a schoolgirl. :XD:

Don't worry, this one's an easy one, no complicated grammar, so you probably would've gotten it right. It means dream or fantasy. ;)

And thank you!! I'm glad you also find him cute. I think he works pretty well as an un-Leland. :XD: And yesssss, cape+hat=medieval awesome all around. :D

I'm quite eager to see where he and her go. I actually have no idea whether they're ever going to hook up properly, but I do kinda hope he at least does enough legwork to figure out where she lives. So then maybe they CAN hook up properly. :eyes:

I haven't learned that word yet at school.:XD: What a pity.=P It could have been pretty easy otherwise. X3

You're mostly welcome. Oh yes, he looks like he's kinda the total opposite of Leland.=P
Medieval costumes - historical costumes in general actually - are so much funnn! :D

Haha! Yes he MUST! :lmao: I'd love to see a drawing of both of them.:eyes: Cute and cuddly or hot and sexy, I don't care. As long as I can see them together once that'd be greaaaaat!:XD: Of course, this is only a suggestion and you really don't HAVE to draw it if you don't wanna.=P

Oooh I like him!! *__* I'm a bit fond of this type of characters! :giggle: Yuum and Toreador! I played the classic VtM some time ago and a friend of mine was a toreador vampire, who worked as....hairdresser!! :rofl: He was a totally funny character!! I was a Ventrue girl vampire, instead... I really enjoyed this role play, and I'm curious about the Dark Ages version! ^__^

temiel Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2010  Professional General Artist
AHHH thank you. :love: And I'm fond of that type too, I have to say! Toreadors... I really do love them. :rofl: Ventrue are awesome too, even if they're often GIGANTIC JERKS (at least, the ones I've met so far have been!). My girl is a Brujah, but she's, like... the most UN-Brujah EVER. Polite, shy, respectful, obedient and VERY unquestioning. Clearly her sire is going to have to browbeat her into behaving like a PROPER Brujah. :giggle: Though actually, in the Dark Ages version, a lot of the clans are VERY different from their modern versions. The Ventrue and Toreador are very much the same and haven't changed much over time, but the Brujah are... INCREDIBLY different. In the medieval time period, the Brujah clan has a reputation for being educated champions of the oppressed. I have absolutely NO IDEA what happened between then and now to end up with the bastardized version from the modern setting! Rest assured, Leland and Claris will NOT be pleased about it. They're old school. :D

The details are lovely, and himself, he is an awesome guy! ;)
I am a bit worried for Claris, actually...XD so strange so many guys showing interest for a servant...they must have been plotting something :ninja: Your game is intriguing, i will wait for it to go on!!! :eager:
Are toreadors the same as in the modern setting? He must be a really interesting and unpredictable guy, then...

:rofl: AWESOME! :D And yes, you totally totally are able to influence things from all the way over there, aren't you proud? ;)

AND YESSSS, I am most pleased. :D In all fairness, Gregory of course had absolutely no idea she ever used to be a servant; he just knows her as Leland's progeny, which he assumes means she MUST be interesting, since he finds Leland extremely amusing. Claris is starting to become acutely aware of the fact that her sire has... a reputation that precedes him. A reputation for being a GIANT PAIN IN THE ASS to a lot of very established Kindred, which leads people to assume she must be like him. She's SO not. :lmao:

And yes, if the Brujah are really different, the Toreador are pretty much EXACTLY THE SAME! :XD: Dreamy, spacey, a little unpredictable. Artists. :roll: :giggle:

Aw, Leland is NEVER a pain in the ass to her! Only people who kind of deserve it. Political bigwigs and all that; as we've discussed, such people tend to be complete jerkwads, especially when undead. If anything, I approve of someone going around stirring up trouble. :giggle: :love:
