The Past -
If the Diablo family
could have a poster child that represented every one of their characteristics to
the extreme, Bastian would be it. He's brash, impulsive, ruthless, abnormally
cruel, detests any form of authority, is insanely volatile and as far as anyone
can tell has no soul. Knowing all this, you would think he would be The Diablo
family’s pride and joy…and sometimes he comes close to it. But on the most part
the elders of his clan barely refrain from killing him due to his disrespect of
their positions, machinations and apparent dementia. Little do they know there
is a method to his feigned madness. If they only knew.
Born more than 3000 years ago, Sebastian is older than his King and Queen, being
a child of Meharet. He met his sire after he fled to Greece, escaping punishment
for his many acts of debauchery. The priestess took an interest to him
immediately after she found him with not one, but two of her ladies. She found
him to be spoiled, arrogant, cruel and very very wicked – qualities others may
abhor, but ones she treasured. Instead of killing him for deflowering her virgin
priestesses and with a smile no doubt (she had killed for less), she embraced
him. It was one of the best decisions she had ever made.
As a mortal, Bastian had wanted so much and as Kindred, he wanted to rule the
world. Who was Meharet to stop him, when that too was her plan in unlife.
Together the two manipulated, schemed and seduced their way to the noble heads
of power. They became the true heads of power though they were hidden from sight
by the proverbial ‘curtain’. It mattered little to them. They enjoyed pulling
the strings to their puppets and their reign for over a thousand years. But like
all things, it came to an end. The great empires crumbled and the two vampires
grew bored with one another and when the dust had settled went their separate
For the next few centuries, Sebastian roamed the earth, leaving a path of
destruction and terror behind him. He is the Chimaera bad boy, even the Unseelie
Fey finding themselves in awe of the man. His reputation is notorious and no one
can understand why he is still alive. Surely Selene, Seth or the Powers that be
would have gotten rid of him long ago. Of course that is not to say that many
have tried to take his life and failed.
There are four things that are the most important in Bastian’s life: sex, money,
power and pain, though not necessarily in that order. He rarely sleeps alone,
his bed always having a willing or unwilling partner. He hides his power behind
a mocking indifference. He loves rules, his rules. When provoked or challenged
in any way, Sebastian does not hesitate to prove his prowess. He is an excellent
manipulator being both extremely intelligent and calculating. He does things to
amuse himself and no other. You would think he would be ruling the Diablo Clan
if not seated in Gia’s chair. The truth is he could care less about ruling the
clan, as he cares little for them and as far as the Head chair of the Council
and the Chimaera, well he tried and lost. Of course that does not mean he won’t
Sebastian has been known to break hearts and leave a bloody path wherever he
goes and there are very few who are immune to his plots. And he enjoys his
work…a lot. In fact nothing gives him more pleasure then to see someone squirm
because of the things he has done. You see Sebastian adores pushing peoples
buttons, and is constantly trying to piss everyone off.
He deliberately pushes the envelope, antagonizes the mortal world and does what
he pleases. In other words he’ll do anything that will cause chaos or get him
killed. But Sebastian’s head seems to be fine. Who knows why. Maybe he has
friends in high places. He's cruel, calculated and more than determined to have
NY as his new playground…Let the games begin.
The Present - Most recently, Sebastian found the fabled skull of Rhais, one of the 13 keys.
Will it be enough to save his family from extinction?
