The Life and Times of Alexander Fink Mon Feb 18, 2013 12:40:38 AM#275254Perm Link
(This is a bit of a background story for my character in the circus roleplay.)
The Day I awoke was strange and dark. I was created out of nothingness, along with my brothers and sisters. one of my brothers, who we called "the creator" was able to make anything and everything he imagined out of thin air. he is the one that created the world, the universe, and the galaxy. the twins, one a girl we call Life, and the other a boy named Death. Life breathed life into the things The creator made, and death took it away when it was needed. this is how the world, humans, and other creatures, came to be. but what of me? who was I? why was I the only one of us who asked these questions? My name was Knowledge, but what did that mean? what did anything really mean? I wanted someone to talk to, someone to help understand what it all meant, so, after the creator made beings that resembled our form, and Life brought them to life, I decided to grant them with my Knowledge. they started to learn and become intelligent, I have watched their intellect grow for many years, but still no one has helped me understand the meaning of it all. One day I learned the meaning to our existence. there was a woman, named angela. she was royalty. at this point in human history, they had forgotten who created them, and who gave them their knowledge, I was not given the respect of an omnipotent being, but that of a commoner, but I did not care. I had given humans intelligence, so it was only natural that their thoughts and imaginations where mine as well. I could know anything they did. it helped in my quest to win the girls heart, but Knowing the girl's mind, and knowing her heart where two different things. I worked for years trying to make her fall in love with me, but I was never met with the desired results. I almost gave up, when one day she came to me. "sir arther" she said to me, this was the name I had choosen that millennia. "why, on this day, have you not done something that amazes me? it seems to me that every day for the past two years you have come to me with an amazing gift, but today I find you here, alone and upset." she had said. I answered "It is not for your Eyes amasement I show you these things everyday, but for your hearts." she had not known that my gifts where attempts to win her over. she started to laugh. from that day we spent every hour together. we had a child, and for the first time since I was born, I lived. but she was human, and humans can not live forever. I pleaded with my brother death to let her live, but he told me it could not be done. she was to die. I took care of our daughter, by myself for years. she was the only thing that brought me joy. I searched deep in my mind, so full of knowledge, to find a way to bring my wife back. eventually I had an Idea. I used my knowledge to bring my wife back to life, but at a terrible price. she became the first of a species now known as vampires. She was not like other vampires though, she was full bloodthirsty, her mind had gone with her to the afterlife, so when I brought her back, it was only her body that lived, her soul and mind where gone. My daughter, sweet little Amber, was driven to the brink of insanity after seeing her dead mother transformed into such a horrific beast. I did the only humane thing and wiped her mind. I had lost my wife, and in my grief, I had forced myself to lose my daughter as well. that is the sad true story of Alexander Fink, the tale of the dumbest decision the smartest man in the world ever made.
