**1000 Years Prior**
Unknown to the human world, there is a parallel universe, filled with beings whom are not so much different to themselves in looks, but have a vengeful thirst for blood and travelling the high seas! The universe of these "Sailors" is an accursed one, full of demise and misery, but something has changed and stirred up what had allowed these beings to plunder and thieve to their unbeating hearts content.
The human world had legends of these beings, but no sighting was ever reported, of course there was always those who claimed to have seen the beings whilst out at sea, but they were always put down to hallucinations or a vivid imagination.
But unknown to the humans there was an event that would turn these universes upside down.
There was a human pirate known as Captain J. Spark. He had been known as a notorious sea-baring thief and wreaked havoc wherever he landed, his crew was said to be the most insane criminals known to mankind. But in a turn of events, this cannibalistic crew disappeared without a trace one misty night. There had been sailing warnings and no ships were to sail due to the mist, but Captain Spark never stayed home, they say his life was in the depths of the sea.
That night there was a cosmic shift, and the universe of Sailors and the Human world came into contact, and anything that was caught in the time shift when it opened, which looked to the humans like nothing more than mist, was then thrown and stuck in the shift of universes.
Since the universes crossed over, they became one, co-existing at the same time. The Sailors or more commonly known as Vampire-Pirates, sail the seas, usually undetected by the humans who exist on the land. There has been only a few of the pure-blood Vampire-Pirate clans left, as many eventually ended up falling for humans when they'd dock in on land. The Sailors are only allowed to sail at night, and it's said that sometimes you can still see Captain J.Sparks boat on a misty night.
Plot / General Character Information
It's essentially a free-for-all plot, with not much initial story-line and room to take the adventure wherever your mind likes. There is 3 kinds of beings of which you can decide and that may help shape what plot you have for your character:
1. Pure-blood Vampire-Pirate
These are the true Vampire - Pirates that existed from the lineage from before the universes crossed over, almost regarded as royalty and high being members, Captains of Ships are also usually Pure-blood. They do not like humans, and refuse to drink a humans blood for the chance it could taint their perfect lineage. These beings age, but very slowly, so for what would be one human year, would be 10 years of ageing to a vampire-pirate. For example : If your character looked 20 they could be at least 200 if not older. Also, they are near immortal, but not un-kill-able, it's just more difficult. You'd need silver or a wooden stake to the heart to kill them.
These are Vampire-Pirates whom also have human lineage as well, even though the Vampire-Pirates will regard them as their own,they are not as highly ranked in the society, and would probably be the sort of beings you'd find cooking or cleaning the decks of their Captains Ship. They being half human themselves, do not depend on just blood-lust alone, but also need some food of the normal kind otherwise they become weakened and their mind starts to deteriorate. They also have no issue with killing a human for blood. They age slowly, but not as slow as a pure blood, so for 1 year in human life, would be 5 in theirs. For example: If your character looked 20, they could be about 100, maybe a little older. They are immortal in the same sense as the pure-bloods, but can die of starvation, silver , wooden stake and sunlight.
This is pretty much self explanatory, they are humans, with no Vampire-Pirate Lineage at all. They exist on land and have no day or night restrictions. They lead normal human lives, much like those today. There is no blood-lust and they eat ordinary food, and age, and die like human beings do. They have a normal life expectancy, and will die from disease, hunger, and anything else that can kill humans aswell as old age. However, they can be turned into Half-lings, if they are bitten by a Vampire-Pirate, and not fully drained/killed... however once they are turned their aging stops completely, and they become doomed to sail under the Captain of the being who turned them for all eternity.
