Second Ability: Telepathy
Animal Form: Bat
Group: Eventide District Clutch
Rank: None
Role: Guardian


Power Description
Persistently focused use of aerokinesis (especially to summon hurricane-force winds or to prevent air from entering someone's lungs for too long) can trigger her into bloodlust.

Telepathy is always on except for periods of dead sleep, and extends the radius of twice times her height (about eleven feet) in all directions. Having an active stream into more than one person renders her physically mute. More than four people at a time will leave her in a heavy daze. These numbers will improve over time as she gains more control over the power.

Her animal form is an Egyptian Rousette.

Animal Description

Appearance

Outside of uniform, she favors an elegant and often reserved look, though she sometimes has a guilty pleasure for a low cut neck. Will not often wear a veil or hijab, but it is not unheard of for her. Any makeup tends to trend towards a natural sort of look, though red lipstick sometimes finds its way into her arsenal.

Personality

Raziyya is heavily tied to her history and her homeland. She has always been nostalgic for the ancient past, and especially enamored of warrior queens and goddesses of battle. She's always equated herself to them, which leads her into a rather permanent state of arrogance. She slides often between aloof and taunting disdain, especially for those who are not refined.

Attaining aerokinesis was a catalyst for her ambitions. However, she proved a very capable ruler once she attains power, and through several military campaigns she also gained a thirst for the action on the battlefield.

Becoming a vampire only helped to solidify her self-assurance, even at those times when she has faced defeat and finds herself forced to flee.

She is fond of changing her name.

History

382 C.E. Weds her uncle and is named Queen of the Tanukh

As Sayf al-Nur, Queen of Syria
384 C.E. the king dies without a male heir. Maymūnah ascends to the throne and creates a new name for herself. It angers others, but she simply removes her enemies until there are none left.
387 C.E. discovers a religious rebellion brewing, puts it down. Battles an invasion from the Huns. Discovers one of them is a vampire, befriends him.
403 C.E. rules for a time of peace once more until she mysteriously vanishes. Rumors spread that one of her lovers killed her; in reality, it was at her request, as she desired immortality.

As Ameretat, army chief of the Sasanian empire
417 C.E. resurfaces in Persia when she exerts her influence over the shah Yazdekerd I and has him install her as head of his army.

427 C.E. Realizing she must make a habit of moving on or risk revealing herself to others, Ameretat disappears during a battle against the Hephthalites, but not before victory was secured. She spends several quiet decades in a clutch and tours Anatolia.
453 C.E. Attends the wedding feast and subsequent death of Attila the Hun with several others of her clutch. The cause of death remains unclear, but she seems to know.
472 C.E. After several more decades of comfort in the clutch and out of the mortal eye, life is disrupted when Vesuvius erupts, and the damage is widespread. Ameretat and a few others depart to Asia.

As Leontia, advisor to Empress Irene
782 C.E. Unhappy with the deteriorating role of women under the Abbasids, she sneaks into the army on its way to Anatolia disguised as a common soldier; does not support either the Abbasids or the Byzantines but delights very simply in adding to the chaos on both sides.
787 C.E. charms and compels her way into the court of Empress Irene of Constantinople; ends up becoming friends with her. Aids in her retaining her power rather than passing it on to her son, Constantine VI.
792 C.E. Constantine manages to rise to power regardless, but Leontia has other plans, and secretly sabotages his war efforts against the Arabs.
795 C.E. meets with Constantine alone and compels him to divorce his wife and marry his mistress, which leads him into public disgrace. Gathers Irene's supporters to capture and torture Constantine. Kills him via aerokinetic suffocation once they are alone and drains him dry. Irene becomes Empress Regnant.
802 C.E. Irene rules the Byzantine Empire until she is conspired against and exiled. Leontia goes with her and turns her to a vampire; they spend nearly the next one hundred fifty years in quiet obscurity together as lovers.
950 C.E. Irene is killed when another clutch springs up and finds her to be "trespassing." Leontia tracks down their second in a rage and blows her up. They attempt to hunt her down, but she evades them.
1091 C.E. spends the next century or so as a nameless wandering soldier taking part in several human conflicts throughout the Mediterranean. She does not commit loyalty to any cause at this time, but finds the general chaos of war soothing for her loss.

As Na'ila, Soldier of Mahdia
1142 C.E. departs to Northern Africa and joins another clutch in Tunisia. Discovers she is able to travel during the day in animal form, is warned of the limits.
1174 C.E. is approached by the Dominus for her interest in ruling opposite him in exchange for her affections. She declines, preferring her role as a soldier. Her skills protect her from backlash, but she harbors resentment for his approach.
1248 C.E. noting the gradual decline of the clutch, she brings in more fresh (and loyal) blood. Becomes their primary caretaker and earns their trust and support.
1278 C.E. By now in command of a small collection of vampires both loyal to her and strengthened over time, she stages a revolt against the Dominus and his supporters. Installs a new head, and retains her position peacefully.
1423 C.E. departs from the clutch out of boredom to travel. Finds her way to Malta and takes part in stirring the public uprising against Aragon two years later. Returns to the clutch after the conflict settles.
1671 C.E. the clutch splinters due to political conflicts.
