Ramblings

This was a perfect post to talk about vampires. But I’ve talked about vampires before. And you’ve only really seen one vampire, no two vampires in the stories AJ has presented thus far. But she is going to make a vampire book. Yay! You’ll get to see more into the vampire world more than me…

The Son of Il Cane

Il Cane is notorious among all the races. She is one scary vampire. And I know I’ve given you a run down on her. But her son is just as notorious, especially in New York City where he is Prince of the City. There are three types of vampires. Primeval – those born vampires and…

The Venatori Lifestyle

Nox: What I’m about to write, or rather I’m going to let Sage type is not what I first thought of when the prompt came up. But I don’t want to hide my daily prompt behind a password so we’ll go the secondary route – how the Venatori lifestyle looks from the outside. Because to…

Alchemy

Today’s prompt really didn’t call to me. Magic potions – cure alls – the elixir of life. Not really soemthing I have much to say about. However definition #3 at dictionary.com did an alchemic preparation formerly believed to be capable of transmuting base metals into gold. My original creation was a channeler for a role…

Il Cane

Tell your story about the time you succeeded at something because you just. Didn’t. Give. Up. I’ve spoken about it before – the fact that I hunted Il Cane. It was part of my first Hunt. But it isn’t really part of that particular serial AJ was working on. So, I’ll tell you about the…

Slur

Insults anyone? We have the typical racial slurs – a Venatori can look like any human on the planet in terms of skin color, hair etc. We are human to a degree, but it’s the origins of our background that gave us our coloring just like humans. Same goes for Primeval vampires, the sun changes…

Lovingly

Not all supernatural creatures treat their young like the Venatori. Most of them lovingly take care of them. The Venatori have always been about taking care of the best to provide the best. It’s just the way they were raised and it was how it’s been for millennium. Vampires take care of their children in…

Resist

A Venatori can resist a great many illnesses and diseases. Our rapid healing ability heals nearly all damage we sustain. The deeper the wound the longer it takes. Add in silver and it can take a little longer as well. But there are two things that are a death sentence to Venatori (and Aeternus). A…

Scent

All Venatori have keen senses. Being half human you are lucky to get parts of the Venatori genetics at all. Some Minorem don’t get any unique abilities of the Venatori. Other’s get partial, and some on very rare occasions keep all Venatori abilities. I’m like most Minorem. I have heightened senses, the ability to heal…

Filter

I tried to find something other than a boring topic to discuss so I started looking through AJ’s world building site at what was built and what wasn’t. While AJ already talks about Ad Aetatem I’m going to expand upon it. The link basically talks about the rituals. I’ll talk about mine specifically and what…

The Ten Bloodlines

Over the weekend I spoke about what came from the Primeval Vampires I glossed over the ten blood lines and said I’d expand more on what I know. The Venatori don’t really care to know beyond how to kill a vampire, but I’m not most Venatori and I have a close personal friend that has…

Devastation

I speak well of Il Cane – the vampire assassin of the vampire world. To quote some unknown book or show I’ve forgotten: When things go bump in the night she is what bumps back. Il Cane or to her family Cari Giovanni. She was born in the late eleventh century. She lost her family…

Oversight

The Venatori were supposed to be the oversight to Clandestine Providence Laws, but who watches to make sure they don’t abuse things. It was technically the Aeternus who were the oversight comity – which was the career path of the Venatori. That is still the case if you call the hunters the venatori. AJ once…

From Primeval Vampires

Since the beginning the Primeval Vampires have been forbidden from turning humans into lesser beings like themselves. But as the stories I’ve been told goes – Lila, the favorite daughter of Lilith and Cain, had different plans. But I need to go a little bit more into the depths of human religion to tell the…

Daevas & Marionettes

I started a lengthy talk on the races in my world and what they are capable of. This post is a second in that series. I don’t know how many we’ll get into before the post gets too long winded, but we’ll start and keep going. The original races are Humans, Dragons, Primeval Vampires and…

Exposure

Today might end up with a long lecture like post. I could talk about photography, but the I suck at taking pictures, and know next to nothing about it. But the prompt did incite an actual topic I’ve only hinted – life as a Venatori. We have very little exposure to the things normal kids…

Capable

Why do all this prompts always put into the same realm of thinking. It’s a struggle to go beyond the same rants and things I typically go on about. So instead I’ll touch upon my knowledge of my race, and those in my world – a little lecture so to speak on what each race…

Beliefs

Do you have the same religious beliefs that you had as a child? If so, why? If not, how and why did they change?

I’m sure I’ve answered this one before. The Venatori don’t exactly have a religion. We believe that the world was created and this creator made four races – Aeternus, Dragons, Primeval Vampires and Humans. Technically you could include The Deva as a race as well since Angels and Demons don’t fit into these four categories but they our creator never intended them to live on earth. They came before the four races.

L: Lunar

The lunar cycle is important for all were creatures.  As a Venatori we are taught that weres are have a three day period around every full moon that fledgling were’s first shift.  This shift is usually forced and if out of control of an Alpha always dangerous.  Were culture dictates that the Alpha of the…

H: Housing

We are provided everything we could possibly ever need. There were times when the Venatori couldn’t afford much, but with bankers and financial guru’s like Asher Eriksen, the Venatori have not been poor for a very long time.
