Lady Joya

By:

She might not seem to be much of a threat.  Not at first.  Just pray you never meet her when she’s hungry.

Special Equipment:

She doesn’t carry much on her person, but there are many useful things hidden in the Graveyard.

Appearance:

She is a slight woman, with long dark hair that she leaves loose.  She is very pale, and reasonably attractive.  Her eyes reflect the moonlight in a fashion similar to that of animals.  She generally wears loose, dark clothes.

Background:

Joya was a young woman from a village on the edge of the Western Woods.  The woods had not yet gained the reputation that they would grow to develop.  Only certain parts were shunned.  Places like the old graveyard a little distance into the forest, and the ruined cathedral further in.  Joya was a practical woman, however, and did not believe the stories of fantastic creatures living in the woods.  She like walking there alone, and there were sometimes useful things to be found in the shunned places.
It was by the abandoned cathedral that she met him, as she walked one night alone.  She did not realize his true nature then, and was flattered by the attention he gave her.  Mistaking his intentions, she agreed to meet him again the next night.  That promised to be the last night of her mortal life.
After her change, Joya took up residence first in the abandoned cathedral with her master, then in a tomb in the graveyard.  She had not been there long when the Great Wizard War erupted between the Great Wizard Vazon and his underlings, and the True Fey and their agents.  Joya’s master was destroyed, and Joya inherited his place as the ruler of what was to become known as the Place of Bones.
That was a long time ago.  A very long time ago.  Decades, and then centuries passed.  Joya rules her realm unquestioned, and has spent centuries feeding on any and all tresspassers into her territory, mortal and fey alike.


Roleplaying Notes:

Joya is not an inherently evil creature, as some might think.  She’s amoral, because after the first couple hundred years, the distinction between good and evil just seems silly.

Joya tends to keep things that she might find useful, so there’s really no telling what intrepid and lucky souls might find in the crypts and tombs of the Ancient Graveyard.

Joya is not the only resident of the Place of Bones.  The region is positively infested with undead, walking skeletons, at least two wights, wraiths, ghosts, and all other manner of formerly living beasts.  And Joya can control them.  Also a danger is Roland Feyfriend, a psychotic that patrols the area by day.

Joya is very old, and very smart, and she does not take incursions into her territory lightly.  However, she is a reasonable creature, and if one could prove it was in her best interest to allow it, she would make a powerful ally.  They better talk fast, though.

Joya has all the vampiric powers due to one of her age, but she might have also gained more from feeding on fey beings.

Most lesser beings in the forest, certainly in the Place of Bones, fear Joya and/or take her orders.

A vampire that is refreshingly different from the norm. 5/5

A neat character, though portraying something that lives by eating sentient being as something other then evil does not sit well for me.

I could definitely see her used as something other then an opponent though.

(A levitating giant nautilus that makes a noise like "piki-piki" and is thus called a Great Piki-piki.)
