Personality: Seth is an easygoing, happy-go-lucky person. He’s optimistic and kind to those that return his kindness. He will tease the people he likes and makes sure to laugh often. He’s a very playful vampire. He has a protective and loving nature. Seth is also one to hold grudges and will be vengeful if his loved ones are hurt. He has a sense of justice and duty, often acting on those as well when faced with problems. He can be a bit rash when the people he cares about are in danger, often not caring that he could hurt himself in the process of saving them. Seth is also a gentle person, never wanting to purposely hurt someone. He’s an honest and open person, all right with sharing his feelings and not feel awkward by admitting them. Seth is a pretty flexible guy, never really caring if plans get messed up or changed, believing that things will work out in the end for better or for worse. He is also not one for rigid order, preferring to do things spontaneously or at random. He’s very laid back, and is known to rise to the occasion as needed, often going above and beyond. He fears being overtaken by his instinct or watching his loved ones be hurt in front of him. Seth is also a bit of a prideful person, if told he can’t do something he will work to prove that person wrong and subtlety rub into their faces his triumph. That being said that’s only if presented with a challenge, other than that he tends to be pretty humble and have a lot of humility. Seth is also sociable and charming.
Likes: writing, soccer, snow boarding, history, jazz music, science
Dislikes: sitting still, drinking blood
Weakness: Seth is weak to light, but he can go out in the daylight and the like. He's weak to fire as well but because of his age, for the most part he can bend it away from him. Hellfire and Holy Fire are the most dangerous to him. They burn badly and leave scars. Seth is not good at ranged combat. Decapitation and heart ripping out are also kills.
Pet or animal of association: Raven
History: Seth was born the only child of his parents. His father was one of four kids Mugen had with the Moon Princess. Over the years Mugen’s children were killed off one by one by contracted Hunter’s Guild members. The contractor was believed to be his uncle on his mother’s side but by the time the red flags were apparent, Mugen had since left the throne in the hands of his children and with Seth’s parent’s and the rest of the Night children dead the only possible candidate at the time was his uncle. Seth was to receive the throne once he came of age.
As the years passed and Seth waited until the council considered him of age to take the throne, Seth went on to study many different things over the course of his long life. He studied history, archeology, and briefly studied medicine. He went to college a few times and gained majors in history, archeology, anthropology, and biology. He minored in German, though this isn’t the only language he knows. Also during his long life he took the liberty of traveling and fell in love with snowboarding, rock climbing, and camping. He learned a few languages over his travels: Italian and French. He also knows Latin for his studies.
By this point in his life Seth now had his own apartment in New York City and was picking up research wherever he could before he was called back home to finally receive the throne. Or so he thought. At this gathering his uncle announced that he would chose the new king between Seth and his cousins, but never disclosed when he would. With this hanging in the air, Seth’s cousins now fought each other to the death for the chance at being King. Seth, knowing he was the rightful heir, left and went into hiding while his cousins continued to fight. A few of his cousins do recognize him as the rightful heir though and have given him their loyalty, while others have him at the top of their list to kill. It’s even rumored that whoever brings Seth’s uncle Seth’s head will get the crown.
Seth is currently lying low to keep from getting into fights with his cousins as he tries to figure out how to take the throne back from his Uncle. He does occasionally come out of hiding to run errands for Mugen who is also doing his best to stay out of politics.
1) Darkness manipulation
2) Age shifting - he can change his appearance to any age that he wants to because of how long he's lived.
Special skills/ techniques:
1) Blood Trait - available only to the ruling class, stat increase at the cost of stronger instincts
2) True King (restricted) - This is another stat increase attack but it's not as instinct ruled, though it can be if provoked. This was an ability that was bestowed on the royal family by the Moon Goddess can only be used by the king. This goes back to the idea that all the power was split from the king and given to the others, he can reach these abilities. This was put in as a control measure to make sure that the Night family was the one that stayed in power. That being said this is another stamina consuming attack. The king always being knocked out for at least a good few days with only a few minutes of use.
Seth can form blood bonds like the rest of the vampires. He currently has a half-bond with Willow Brecken.
If he comes under bond stress and risks decay, he decays at a slow rate.
Vampires always have to acknowledge true-selves. If they don't then they risk strain in their relationships and can start to decay and die from it. The risk increases the closer they are to someone.
Mugen was the first real king, his father never really getting a chance to rule. Seth is the third but with the introduction of Kagami he and Mugen both are not on the throne. Mugen can step in at any time to reclaim the throne from Seth but neither can claim the throne from Kagami.
Seth is a bit of an odd vampire in that he tends to operate on a daily schedule. Not only that but he can consume human food where as Kagami cannot. In fact he's quite skilled in cooking, having undergone French culinary training.
Seth is skilled in German, French, and Latin and has a few different college degrees.
He can play saxaphone.
