    Dominic Adair
    In Character
    [Image: 23kp5qb.jpg]
    Full Name: Dominic Edric Adair
    Nicknames: Dom as well as various aliases when the situation calls for it
    Birthdate: November 9th of 1792
    Current Age: 94 Years (was turned at the age of 20)
    Race: Vampire
    Occupation: Mercenary
    Reputation: Two
    Residence: Vampire Caverns, Hogsmeade
    Social Class: Lower
    Donovan Adair, father, deceased
    Lenore Adair, mother, deceased
    Eric Adair, elder brother, deceased
    Lorraine Adair, younger sister, deceased
    Like all vampires, Dominic has pale, gaunt skin and sharp teeth. Dominic has dirty blond hair, blue eyes and dark shadows under his eyes. He stands at an even six feet with a slightly muscular build. Dominic enjoys attire that is classy and refined and favors darker colors that make it easier to blend into the forest at night. He is right handed.
    1792: Dominic is born to Donovan and Lenore Adair, an upper class pureblood couple that live in Wales.

    : Lorraine Adair is born.

    : Dominic shows his first signs of magic when he sets a room on fire in a fit of rage.

    : Dominic's November birthday assures that he is almost twelve when he finally goes off to Hogwarts. He is sorted into Ravenclaw.

    1808: In the summer before his fifth year, Dominic receives a prefect badge.

    1810-1811: Dominic becomes Head Boy, much to his delight. When he graduates, Dominic decides to go on a trip with a friend through different parts of Europe. The trip is planned to take about a year and a half.

    1812-1841: Sometime during their trip, due to a series of incidents, Dominic and his friend find themselves stranded in a dark forest in Romania. They make a campsite for themselves but when night falls, they are attacked by a vampire in a scenario that Dominic would later consider to be overly cliche. Dominic's friend dies but Dominic is turned. He joins the group of vampires that his sire is a part of.

    For a long time - through all of his 'fledgling' years, in fact - he remains a part of them and moves around with them through the forests of Romania. They rob and plunder people for funds and supplies. They also think very little of claiming human life. Dominic finds his new life to be much more enjoyable than his human life had ever been. He especially takes great joy in murder, something he had always daydreamed about as a human but never would have seriously considered. Due to how long he has been "missing", Dominic is legally declared dead by his family.

    1841-1846: Feeling restless, Dominic and his lover at the time decide to leave their vampire nest and strike out on their own with a few other younger vampires joining them. Their travels soon find them in Italy where they end up settling for another few years. They move from town to town in Italy, robbing homes, killing humans, and then leaving before the locals can catch them. In 1835, this comes to and end when a couple of vampires in their coven get themselves caught and executed. The remaining vampires, including Dom, decide to move along to a new country.

    1846-1850: Residing in France for the next few years, Dominic and his remaining brood keep a lower profile than they had in Italy. Eventually, Dominic grows bored of them and ditches them without a thought when he finds opportunity to return to his home country.

    1850-1852: Dominic returns to his home town and makes the discovery that his mother had died many years ago during his absence. He later also finds out that his has sister died as well. He doesn't much care about these facts but it's still nice to know. He spends the next two years secretly living within his familys estate and causes his brother - now an old man - to believe that he is being haunted by Dominic's ghost. Eventually driven mad by insanity, Eric burns the family home down and perishes within the flames. Without a home, Dominic begins residing within the forests of Wales.

    1852-1875: For some time, Dominic keeps a low profile, sustaining himself by preying on humans that cross his path and looting them after they're dead. He always makes very sure not to turn anyone as he doesn't want to have to deal with a newborn vampire following him around. He maintains this lifestyle for quite a long time, finding himself surprisingly adept at solitude. Even still, he does crave some sort of social interaction from time to time. You know, aside from brief conversations with his dinner.

    1875-1880: Bored of Wales and lowkey on the hunt for fellow vampires to possibly strike up alliance sort of friendships with, Dominic travels to Ireland. He resides there for some time, keeping the same low profile that he has learned helps him manage to be able to stay in one place without being driven out or discovered by locals. Through the small connections that he manages to make, he learns of a new settlement called Hogsmeade. He decides to see if this place will stick before moving there but makes plans to do so if it does.

    1880-1883: Hogsmeade seems like it's gotten itself pretty established so the vampire moves into the forests and is delighted to find more of his kind in a place known as the Vampire Caverns.

    1883-Present: Dominic has made a home of one of the caves in the Cavern and has managed to steal himself quite a few home comforts to adorn it with. It feels weirdly comfortable to be living near his own kind even if he tends to choose to keep to himself. He lowkey offers his services as a mercenary of sorts as a means of having something to do with his time as well as to earn a few coins.
