Welcome to my attempt at documenting the life of city vampire Vladimir Schlick (according to my imagination) in my newly started game in Bridgeport. Let us begin by taking a look at Vladimir's character sheet:
96 days to becoming an elder
Indie, O Positive, Black
Playing the piano
Workaholic, Technophobe, Coward, Evil, Athletic
Elvira Slayer (friend), Lotta Greaves (friend, deceased), Wogan Hemlock (boss, varies)
Emperor of Evil
'Vladimir has benefitted greatly over the years from his long lasting relationship with Elvira Slayer. But if a reckoning between old and new vampires in the city comes, whose side will he take?'
Vlad’s ravishingly good looks have tricked many a good Sim under his spell… Most Sims in the city find him irresistible! He’s well connected in the local Vampire scene, but with a new crowd on the rise, Vlad might have to choose sides.
(I find this part to be not quite in tune with his starting relationship panel, but I included it anyway)
My Personal Touch:
Vladimir may dress according to modern time, but in reality, he is stuck in a past century and distrusts all technology. He grew up with and believes in good old hard work to achieve one's goals. As a young child, he was teased and made fun of, but he never felt confident enough to stand his ground, choosing instead to flee from his attackers. That was how he learned, that he could outrun the other kids from school. Even the older ones and with ease. He excelled at sports when he became a teen and was able to better make friends from this point until school ended.
The friends from back then are all long gone now, of course. As an adult, Vladimir has led an obscure and mostly solitary life and that didn't change significantly after he was turned vampire. Moving to the big city, Elvira Slayer was the first to notice his arrival and quickly became his "friend". Her real agenda was and is, of course, simply to get other powerful vampires to join her campaign for dominance. Vladimir did suspect this, but as the "new kid on the block" with secret insecurities, he didn't find much reason to object, so he played along. For a while.
One night while frequenting the Plasma 501 with Elvira, he met a sweet young lady by the name of Lotta Greaves, who was serving drinks. There was chemistry between them instantly and they ended up becoming friends that same night. This had left Elvira feeling scorned, however. She put on her charms and lured Lotta outside in the night and into a dark alley where she drank her empty and set her ablaze to cover up her bite marks. When Vladimir later learned of this, he arranged for a small secluded grave in honor of his new friend at the spot where she was found badly burned and lifeless. Vladimir has not spoken much with Elvira since then and their friendship is decaying steadily. For the first time in his life, Vladimir has decided to oppose his inner demons and take action, get himself situated in a position of power and gather allies, for Elvira must pay for her manipulating and murderous ways. Fortunately, he is far from the only vampire who is holding a grudge against Elvira Slayer. In fact, he already found his first ally in his boss. Complications are bound to occur, but Vladimir is determined.
And so, here we are...at the beginning of Vladimir's journey to take over Bridgeport.
