Age: 85 years (became vampire at age 21)
Age: 85 years (became vampire at age 21)
Melody was born in what you would call a ghetto area. She was an only child, and she lived with her mother, since her father only came at night and her mother took care of her. Melody's family was really poor and they went to the local store to buy food once a week, and they only had enough food to provid for one day, so they ate their food wisely and slowly, no matter how hungry they were. They lived in a small apartment that only had a small kitchen, an area to sit on the couch or relax, and one bedroom with two twin beds.Flaws/Personality traits:
Melody was thirteen, her mother suddenly became ill. They had no heat and the winter was always hard to live through, but her mother just couldn't take it anymore. She got a really bad cold, and then that ended up turning into the flu. Melody had to watch over her mom and clean everything since her mom was too sick to care for their apartment. One day, when Melody woke up early to fix a pot of coffee for her mom....her mom was found dead on her bed. They didn't have enough money for a funeral, so Melody had no idea what to do with her mother. So...she ran away, and she kept on running until she was far away from that apartment.
Melody lived by herself and got the job as a cashier at a local store. She lived off that money and bought herself an apartment that was very similar to the one she grew up in. Unfortunately, like her other apartment the heating was poor, and at first she didn't have enough money to pay for heating. She soon did get heating, and she thought everything was going to be fine...
Melody was now twenty-one years old, and she was living a pretty good life. She had enough money to live like a regular citizen. One day, she decided to visit her old home, and see if her old apartment was still there. When she arrived, she saw how spooky and ghetto it was there, and she didn't even remember it being that spooky. She was unsure at first, but she did end up walking through, looking for her old address. She knew someone was watching her though, and she immediately panicked, she heard footsteps, which made her go faster. The next thing she knows, she hears a bang from a shot gun, and then...intense pain. She fell on her knees, and saw blood pouring out of her chest, very close to her heart. Then, she felt very faint, and she knew, she was probably going to die. She was wrong...in a way.
Someone had heard the gun shot, and that someone had, fortunately for her, been a vampire. He felt pity for this pretty girl, who was half dead on the ground, so he went over and bit her neck. Melody shrieked as it felt her neck was on fire, and she did not remember being shot in the neck. She thought she saw the blackness of death envelop her, she thought she was a goner... She woke up a day or two later, and she looked around confused, her eyesight had improved, and so had her smell. She wondered if she was in Heaven, but no, she was in the scary ghetto....how strange.
She stood up and started walking around, confused. She saw some poor guy sitting against a wall, with a hat in his hand, asking for money. Something drew her to the man, and something about him...was it his heart beat, the blood rushing through him? She didn't know, but she found herself lunging for the guy's throat, and then...she started drinking him blood. When she caught herself doing so...she knew this wasn't normal...she knew she was a vampire.
Melody is kind of a secretitive type of girl. She usually doesn't show her presence that often and doesn't let people know much about her. It is hard for her to be in public, since of her appitite for blood usually makes her go insane so she usually sucks people's blood when they are usually alone of course, but it's just hard for her to control herself when around other humans, although through the years, she has gotten better. She usually hangs out in the ghetto where she became a vampire and where she grew up. She finds it easier to capture people in the ghetto, and since someone had turned her into a vampire there, she thought it a good place for her to be too. She kind of has a dark mind, and likes seeing humans in pain, but other then that she is usually pretty nice, if you get to know her well and she trusts you at least. She also likes violence and usually finds herself in fights believe or not.Physical description:
Melody has long blond hair that goes to her mid-chest area and is usually straight. She has reds streaks in the front of her blond hair. She usually wears a lot eyeshadow and eyeliner. She has a tattoo on her left shoulder of a treble cleff symbol, since she thought it went with her name well. She is pretty thin, since most of her life all she ate was a one days worth of food that had to last a week.
She is 5 feet and 8 inches tall. She has kind of long legs and arms. She usually wears dark colors like black, navy, dark green, or dark purple.
Melody's goals in life are to meet a vampire who is a "vegetarian", learn about their ways and how they survive, and possibly try to become a "vegetarian".Where Did You Find Us?: Proboards Support
