In all his years, Marius embraced only three women. One was Gia, his first and his favorite. The second was
Antigone, who disappeared long ago. And the last was Medea, the daughter he
had always wanted.
In a time of rationalism and industry, Medea was a throwback to the time of the fey. With her wild mane of red hair and
flashing green eyes, her quick temper and quicker laughter, she was a force of
nature set among mortals, a trickster and contrarian who did her best to vex
anyone who placed themselves above her.
Any save for her mother, of course. Where Medea was quicksilver her mother was granite, where daughter was flash and fire
her mother was a cool touch on a hot brow. But they were an unbeatable pair.
From a young age Medea's mother taught her the hexes and spells that all the
folk thereabout used every day- a ward to keep out vermin, a hex to strengthen
the weave- and Medea took to the magic like a fish to water. The young girl soon
outstripped her mother and even the local witches with the power and versatility
of her spellcasting. It was this that drew Marius's attention. A wild,
uncontrollable, beautiful, and powerful young woman, as unpredictable as the
storm and dangerous as the flame. She was everything Marius wanted in a daugher.
Their first meeting was contentious- Medea had yet to meet anyone more powerful
than she. But if there was anyone who could tame her it was Marius, and tame her
Medea grew to love, to idolize this man, the only father she had ever known. She dedicated herself to serving him and he
encouraged her to be the devil's advocate in all things, the sinister voice in
his ear when anyone spoke to him. She was daughter and advisor, tool and weapon
all in one.
The young woman unsurprisingly harbored other feelings for the vampire who brought her into the eternal night. She was
jealous of Gia and Antigone on first sight, though Medea soon realized that her
middle sister was no threat to her, no rival for Marius's attention. Gia was
Marius's great love, though, and for all she did she might as well not exist when her eldest sister was in sight.
She played out her desire and jealousy through proxies, finding men who looked and acted like Marius and seducing them
and finding women who looked and acted like Gitanne and torturing them in unspeakable ways.
The wildness in her embraced the changing years as they sped through immortality. She knew that to live was to change, and
Medea launched herself fully into the modern world. In modern nights she's known
as a hellion, as someone dangerous to be around as either friend or foe. Her
moods shift like quicksilver and woe to you if you jump left when she decides to
When Marius died, she was devastated and her bitterness towards Gia grew. Though she cannot prove that Gia killed their sire,
she believes it wholeheartedly and has been trying to dethrone her blood sister
for the past five years.
A few years ago, a mysterious man approached her, named Ba-ali, promising her enough power to not only destroy Gia and avenge
her father, but to rule this world. She believed him and has been searching for
'the key' that will make that come to pass. She does not recognize Jason, who is
currently the host for Ba-ali as her mysterious benefactor who has been
whispering to her all this time.
