Age: 8 (Appears 17)
Mei Beauchene is a unique creature in the vampire world. Her mother was a Chinese fish merchant who fell in love with a beautiful French sailor. They were married, and she was born a year later.Flaws/Personality traits:
They could live peacfully in the Chinese shore for a while due to the contant fog, marine layer, and general smoke from ships that felt like home away from home for her father. However, once Mei was born, everything changed. Mei was born with a rare and bizarre disease, when she was born, she had the body of an old woman, in Chinese culture, she was to be sent out to sea. But Bai He (her mother) refused, she loved her strange, old baby. He didn't know what to do with his old daughter, and his unease coincided with their many arguments. If she was fire he was gasoline.
About a year later they moved to San Francisco. Not long after they got settled in did Eric and Bai He come to the astonishing news that there had been another baby like theirs, a boy named Benjamin Button. They found out that as Mei would age, she would become younger and younger. Bai He and Eric were relieved to learn that their baby wouldn't die as soon as they'd origionally thought.
At first they thought she would de-age gradually, like the Button boy, but Mei was special. By the time she was eight years old she looked like a young woman. Bai He named her Mei- which means 'beautful' in chinese- and she was.
As Mei aged (or de-aged) rather quickly, they learned several things about their daughter; first, she was exceptionally bright and ages abnormally compared to most humans, so school was not an option- second, she got easily bored, and was known to do reckless things, so they needed to keep a close watch on their daughter.
They kept their daughter close for her first seven years, until she reached full maturity (they looked into the medical community for tips onhow to raise a unique child). She moved out of her parents house last year. She'd snuck out to what she thought was a cool, underground club, and made a grave mistake. It was an "undergound" club alright, but it was a club for Vampires. She didn't know such creatures existed. And was charmed into submission by a very handsome young man, and she followed him to his car, where she was turned. Her sire told her she was special, and that she would have to keep a low profile, so she was not to hunt humans, at least for the first few decades. She loved her parents- and still keeps in contact- but wants to hunt as vampires are supposed to, hunting humans. And doesn't want her parents to be any part of that world.
She feels a little deprived of her rights of having vampiric blood in her. And she and her father usually fight if together for too long.
Mei feels deprived of the right of hunting humans, and therefore is a little reckless/ careless when she hunts. She quicky learns who to hunt and how to hunt humans without revealing the vampire world. However she does slip up. She has a hard time keeping her cool around a lot of humans. Her parents were human, but for the most part there were never more than 2 or 3 humans around her at a time. She still holds up better than expected, but her new food is highly addictive.Physical description:
Mei also has oppositional defiant tendencies. She will do the opposite of something just for the sake of being defiant, which gets her into trouble.
Even though she's smart, and has the body of a 17 year old, she's still 8. She can take care of herself, but she still acts like a child on occaision.
Other than that she is a pretty amiable person, as long as you don't talk about controversial subjects....or anything that requires a strong opinion.
Mei is incredibly beautiful. She ahs her father's pale skin and narrow face. But she has her mother's intense turquoise eyes. Both of her parents had black hair. She has her father's french curls. She is 5'6"- fairly tall for an asian, but average for a french woman.Aspirations:
To live as a vampire should...free, doing what they please, hunting who they please. Maybe make a few friends.Where Did You Find Us?: Potterholics Anonymous
