Truagha, Plague Vampire by NyxenAvenger Truagha, Plague Vampire by NyxenAvenger
"Aye, may not be the most healthiest of all doctors, but letting me cure you is a better choice than the cure you'll find down below, should you jump out of the bloody window."-Truagha

Truagha is a 'doctor' so to speak, it had been her ambition ever since she was young, but growing up in a renowned vampire court in the distant Highlands doesn't give you much of an opportunity for such things. She was reluctantly raised to be a noble lady of the court, to be skilled in knowledge of the arcane and to sip goblets of blood with the other vampire nobles. But in her spare time she learned medical practices, the workings of potions and of various ingredients, even poisons were a thing she learned.

Alas, when the great Blood Plague hit the Highlands the vampires ignored the plight of the common people, preferring to suck untainted blood in the safety of their castles, but for Truagha it was a massive opportunity to test out her medical skills. Day by day she would go into the villages and towns and treat the afflicted. Most of the time she ended up sucking the diseased blood out of them, quickly developing a taste for it. By the time the plague passed she had saved many lives, but her once slender figure had ballooned into a blotchy sack of poisonous blood, she was exiled from her court and branded a 'Plague Vampire'.

She eventually found her way into the land of Hememnith, where she set up shop in an abandoned castle. She also found a small army of small tentacled minions who had thought of her as their mother, so she made a makeshift mask not only to bond with them, but it was filled with strong incense to stop her fainting during operations, since then the local folk now call her 'Mama Crow'. Daily life wouldn't be the same without those critters, according to her.

She is also good friends with Aderyn, since they both attended the same arcane college at the time and bonded over their love of potions and books.

First character I've done that's centred around illness and plague, didn't want to do the average vampire archetype, so deviated from it a bit. 

Enjoy! <:
