I created this on Dreamselfy, once again it has pulled me into its clutches and I can't escape its awesomness!
So all credit goes to that site
NAME: Kharis - meaning; charm/grace
AGE: Is hinted that she's at least 200 years old
RACE: Vampire (No-Life-Queen), was once human, was reborn at age 24
HAIR COLOUR: White-blonde
EYE COLOUR: Originally grey, but now permanently blood red
FAMILY: All deceased, was an only child
FRIENDS: All deceased
WEAPON OF CHOICE: Spiked mace, small pistol (rarely used) and clawed hands
~Shape-shifting (she can transform into many forms of darkness, some of animal origin i.e. crows, rabbits, wolves, cats, bats - this is mostly used for spying purposes, she can create "shadow" arms/hands and barbed wires that appear from anywhere - mostly through her arms, back, material of her clothes or the floors and walls, with these she can manipulate freely to aide her in combat)
~Telepathy (she used this often with her former-now-deceased Master when she was still a Fledgling, but after becoming a No-Life-Queen moments before her Master's death, she had no reason to use this ability)
~Minor precognition (can only see a few minutes into the future - mostly uses this in combat to predict her opponents' next moves)
~Minor summoning of familiars (can only sustain one summoning at a time, always summons her deceased (female) Master as a last resort)
~Advanced combat (mostly sticks to using her spiked mace or her clawed hands to fight)
~Memory absorption (only through blood)
~Creation of Fledglings (she never uses this ability)
OTHER POWERS ONLY GAINED THROUGH HER MATING BOND TO ALUCARD (that she didn't have beforehand):
~Immunity to Vampiric Weaknesses (sunlight and silver have very little-to no affect on her, only holy relics can cause her real damage)
~Telepathy (she uses this with Alucard once they become mates and from that connection she can speak to Seras and Integra telepathically due to Alucard's bonds to them, thus forming bonds of her own to them as well)
~Sharpshooting skills (carries one pistol with her at all times as a precaution, she only gains this skill after meeting Alucard, he teaches her how to use a gun, see HISTORY for more details)
~Empathic projection (she can make others feel different emotions, Kharis uses this to calm those around her - mostly on Alucard when he becomes enraged or out of control, instantly soothing him with her presence/touch, downside to this is she has to be stood within metres of the person or be touching them for it to work, the latter being more affective)
PERSONALITY: Reserved and calm, always poised and graceful, often polite to those she is loyal too and mocking to her enemies/strangers.
She is more of an observer; often watching after others or sending one of her many shape-shifted animals to follow after them. She doesn't trust easily, initially questioning the motives of others this results in her giving others the cold shoulder, but once her trust is gained she is a most loyal ally.
Kharis is extremely protective and often-times possessive of those she deems worthy of her affections (usually reserved for Alucard, Seras, Integra and Walter) and will defend her loved ones to the death. She isn't quick to anger, but once she tips over the edge it takes a while for her to calm down; during this time she usually falls into a state of Bloodlust that only Alucard can help her with.
She is also very cruel to her enemies, killing them in brutal and callous ways without a care in the world; often with a smile.
LIKES/HOBBIES: Reading literature, hunting for prey, playing crib as well as various other card/board games, completing puzzles (mostly sudoku's) and taking long casual walks
FEARS: Dying alone, operating tables and most insects
HISTORY: Kharis was born in the late 1700's in Britain as a daughter of a Duke and Duchess with a different name (Alva; meaning brightness), they weren't very wealthy and held little power to their statuses, she grew up in a town with little trouble, she was well-liked and had a few friends.
However, she lost her parents when a gang of criminals broke into their home to steal what treasures they had and sell on for money. They killed her parents and stole Alva away with the intention of selling her.
One night during their travels, the men became a little frisky and started tormenting Alva, by shoving her about roughly and pulling her hair, calling her names. As they became rougher with her, Alva picked up a large jagged rock and used it as a weapon to fight off her kidnappers.
She kills a few of them with well-timed hits to their skulls, but is overpowered once more, the men in a fit of rage decide to not sell her and go to molest her but they are swiftly stopped by a beautiful woman, who after killing Kharis' kidnappers turns out to be a Vampire called; Damaris.
Having witnessed that night's events and understand that Alva was not with the men willingly, she offers her gift to Alva with the promise that she will look after her. Alva eventually agrees as she weighs up the odds of her returning to her home-town alive when she's stuck in the middle of a forest with no sense of direction or protection and with no family to claim her she was alone and penniless. She had nothing left to lose.
That night Damaris changed Alva into her Fledgling Vampire, pleased to find that Alva is still a virgin and renames her as "Kharis", telling her that now she is reborn, she will no longer cling to her past and start over with a new beginning.
For sixty years Kharis remains with Damaris as her Fledgling learning all she can from her about Vampires and her abilities, both perfectly happy with their bond as Damaris comes to see the young girl as the closest thing to a daughter she will ever have, they remain hidden away in what looks to be a run-down castle from the outside, but is actually a liveable home within.
It is on a winter's day a new Lord claiming to own the land returns to take back the castle, having learned of what he assumed to be squalors living in his castle, he calls for his soldiers to run them out, only to discover the Vampires within, the Lord barely escapes alive and flees for his life only to return later with skilled Vampire Hunters disguising themselves as Catholic Priests.
During an intense battle, Damaris is severely injured from holy relics and with no chance of recovery, she beseeches Kharis to finally drink her blood and become a No-Life-Queen, to gain more power to protect herself.
Kharis reluctantly agrees, not wanting to see her adopted mother perish but realises without freedom and power, she won't be able to win against the Hunters all by herself.
Damaris passes away quietly and crumbles to dust not long before addressing her once-Fledgling to go forth and destroy their enemies; retake their home and conquer.
Shortly after, Kharis defeats the remaining Hunters and spends the next few months securing the castle so that she may fall into her Hibernation with no disturbances. With nothing else to occupy her, Kharis Hibernates for the next 120 years only to be awakened in the modern era by Catholic Hunters invading her castle under an ancient rumour of a Demon dwelling within the castle-which is now no more than ruins stood upon a hill.
It is upon her awakening that she is sent into a Bloodlust, killing her enemies with her "shadow" arms and spiked mace; drinking their blood and eating their flesh that dared to disturb her sleep, basking in their screams.
Meanwhile miles away, Alucard who is now a servant to the Hellsing Organization feels the immense power of another Vampire no doubt in combat, but it is not just any Vampire, it is his destined Mate.
He feels an intense longing to meet this Vampire and claim them for his own, though wonders why he is only now noticing The Pull. He relays part of this information to Integra, about there being another Vampire on the loose in a Bloodlust but withholds the other parts as a precaution.
Hearing this, Integra is rather sceptical-especially when Alucard insists on going alone without the Police Girl as his usual companion, but agrees in the end that it would be ideal to stop the Vampire before it causes too much trouble and is noticed by the public.
Kharis has finished feeding when Alucard appears before her, mightily impressed by the bodies of her enemies lay strewn about her in their own blood. He makes small talk, complimenting her on her handiwork, delighting in the thrill her overwhelming presence gives him.
Kharis demands softly as to why he has trespassed upon her territory, being so far gone with Bloodlust she doesn't immediately recognise the Bond between them, when he tells her he is here to claim her as his Mate, she challenges him to fight, finding the mere suggestion of a random male coming out of nowhere to claim her preposterous.
They fight and although Kharis holds her ground very well having not had much practise with her new abilities before her Hibernation, she eventually loses, though is relatively unharmed.
Alucard knocks her to the ground and pins her, telling her to calm down and "feel" him, she does so through sheer will-power alone-another impressive feat and eventually notices a strange longing sensation connecting them. His scent and intense power almost overwhelming her as she finally recognises who he really is.
In this quiet lapse Alucard goes to claim her by drinking her blood and then leading to intercourse, but she refuses and tells him that he will have to prove he is worthy of her as she has noticed the seals upon his hands, stating that she will not bind herself to someone who is under the service of another without knowing why.
Alucard agrees to this arrangement, immensely please that he's at least being given a chance, he returns to Hellsing Manor with Kharis and explains the situation with no small amount of humour.
At a stalemate, Sir Integra begrudgingly allows Alucard to court the female Vampire understanding that if he doesn't, then not only will it put yet more strain upon her and Alucard's "relationship" whereby he may become rebellious and fight the seals, but the female No-Life-Queen will be left to run off to kill others as she pleases. At least with her tied to Alucard, she can keep a close eye on Kharis.
She becomes acquainted with Integra and Walter, initially not knowing how to feel about the humans, though later forms a deep respect for them both as they are able to control and house two Vampires-especially with arguably the most powerful No-Life-king to ever exist.
She is then immediately introduced to Seras-the blonde Fledgling who's barely containing her excitement to meet her Master's Mate, where Alucard proudly states that when they complete their Bond, Seras will become her Childe as well. This stuns Kharis for some time, having never decided to have a Fledgling of her own, she finds sharing Seras a pleasant idea; thinking back to the familial Bond she felt with Damaris when she herself was a Fledgling and how she may be able to feel that again with Seras.
And so begins the courtship, Alucard-whilst still being his insufferable self to everyone else, goes out of his way to prove that he is worthy of being Kharis' Mate-much to the admiration and exasperation of onlookers, at the same time not understanding how she is able to fight off The Pull that links them both together.
He hunts food for her; providing for her, he takes her on a couple of missions whereby she is an observer only; proving his strength and that she'll be protected, he teaches her how to use modern weapons; showing that he will be patient with her and has much to teach her of the world, he insists she stay with him in his quarters; allowing her to get to know him better away from others, he also brings her gifts; further proving she will want for nothing, all the while refraining from anything beyond a few kisses and innocent touches at her own request; also showing that he respects her wishes and will at least make an effort to listen to her.
This goes on for months where Kharis is practically hidden away from the world within Alucard's chambers, allowing no other to come near her, he guards her fiercely with a jealous obsession bordering upon unhealthy and when she does leave their rooms, he always accompanies her, shadowing her everywhere she goes.
His protectivenesses is immediately noticed by the others, Integra does some research regarding her servants erratic mood-swings and discovers it's completely natural for him to feel this way, though she's not too amused by this, she orders the others to approach with extreme caution.
At this time, only Seras is allowed within close proximity to Kharis, as she will soon become the Childe to both of them, thus making her harmless.
However, much later when Kharis falls ill due to the strain of resisting The Pull, he reacts violently towards both Walter and Seras when they attempt to enter his chambers to examine Kharis' health, seeing as anyone coming too close as a threat. They back off after failing to reason with Alucard and decide to try again later.
Alucard remains with his mate, feeling her weakening through the barely established Bond and begs her to accept him so that their Bond can mend itself, with little reluctance, Kharis agrees, realising that it was futile to put it off any longer and agrees to be his. Overjoyed at this, he finally claims her as his and she becomes his eternal Bride.
