[Armand looks like he just spent a weekend in the Bahamas, judging by how tan he is right now. His face is streaked with dirt and soot still, and his once fine velvet and silk is dirt covered and scorched.]
I go hunting every night, and I always have extra meat. If you need any, or in coming days find yourself short let me know either here or on my voice mail. I can also loan out traps, like bear traps if anyone knows how to use them. If you can use them. We don't need anyone else getting hurt.

I need seal-able containers.

Is there a hospital around here? Working or not.

Armand needs a scared icon... Video

[The feed is dark mostly, with occasional flashes of orange as some fire drops nearer to the edge of whatever enclosure Armand is in. He sounds on the borderline of being in a complete panic. Someone with sharp vision might notice some of the skin on his face was charred black.]

Lestat? Lestat, do you have cover?

The Townhouse is on fire.

Does anyone in the city have an area safe from this fire?

[Filtered to Lestat, Buffy, and Ed.]

Even if Lestat and I get burnt we'll live, but I will at least need blood, and I'd rather get it from a beast than blindly attack the first who comes near. [He's having a hard time outright asking for help, but he's already injured.]

[The young-looking vampire's skin is like marble, but he had the forethought of only having one candle lit while recording this, so it will take a sharp eye to notice that he is rather unnaturally white beyond the orange glow tinting the whole scene.

Those that notice might realize his next statement being the reason he hasn't hunted.]
I have spent quite some time thinking after Louis left. Has any here attempted an assault on the animus? Has anyone been in the Inner City that can report what it is like there? Has anyone spoken to the guards or the scientists, or gotten any information from them?

[he takes a breath and tucks his auburn curls behind his ear] I cannot seem to take my mind off of what it is the Animus are doing, the games they are trying to play. I don't want to just be a toy, and I doubt[The young-looking vampire's skin is like marble, but he had the forethought of only having one candle lit while recording this, so it will take a sharp eye to notice that he is rather unnaturally white beyond the orange glow tinting the whole scene.

Don't misunderstand my meaning. I do not propose attacking the Animus or the Inner City just this moment, but I am sure that I'm not the only person who wishes to be left in the dark. I've edged close to the Inner City's perimeter. It seems very well guarded. I have considered asking the guards a few questions, though I would like to know if I would be wasting my time. anyone else here has any interest in that either.

[At first it's silent, save for some shuffling. The lights are far too low to make much out.]

Louis?

Oh, Louie, don't do this.

[He seems to notice that the device is on, but instead of turning it off he lights a candle that gives an eerie glow to his face.]

No one has seen Louis de Pointe du Lac, have they? He's not here, and I can't sense him at all.

Gift 003 [Video]

[Armand looks paler than usual. He hasn't left the house in a few days.]
So, how many of you are doubting that this is the reality?

Gift 002 [Video]

[Armand is ripping a thorn covered vine off of his leg with a furious snarl. Blood does splash as he pulls the vine off and tosses it to the side, but he doesn't seem too bothered by the injury.]

Is this the sort of thing that I should be expecting regularly from Adstringendum? One mind-game after another? This is growing old!
[The camera flashes to show a boy with auburn curls, looking to be about 17. He has an innocent, youthful face, and seemingly impossibly pale skin, matched with flushed pink lips pulled into a slight pout.] Oh, come now, ah, [he still has some issues with technology that is completely new to him it seems, but now that it's working his expression has softened to seem more like the serene looks of Botticelli's angels.]

Hello. I am Armand, and I would be glad for some explanations. Perhaps more importantly, has anyone seen a young woman obsessed with playing the piano named Sybelle, or a young tanned boy named Benji?

HMD?

How am I doing? In theory, anon should be on, though I've never been too good at this. Anon is screened.

4th WALL BREAKING: Sure! Armand would be shocked to hear that someone else thought it was a good idea to write about the vampires.
THREADJACKING: Go ahead! I appreciate an IM warning, but if I'm not available you can go ahead.
BACK THREADING: Always and forever

MIND READING: He'd certainly be intimidated and confused. You'd have to be pretty powerful, but it's not impossible!
LOCATION SENSING: Ask me, just to be sure!
TELEPATHY: Sure!
SPECIAL/MAGICAL ITEMS: Gogogogo!

FIGHTING CAPABILITIES: Armand is strong, even among vampires, even if he is not the strongest among them. I'm more than willing to have him lose, but unless your character has comparable strength and speed, it would more than likely be in the field of cunning, and that won't be the easiest win either. If you want a fight, just talk to me, and I'm sure we can figure out something!
INJURY/DEATH: Considering it's Adstring? Death won't be a problem. But still, ask me first.
WIN/LOSE/TIE: Should be pre-arranged.
MEDICAL/PHYSICAL INFO:Armand is one of the older vampires around and rather difficult to kill as such. He is super fast, strong, can fly, and has extraordinary vision and hearing. He needs blood to live, and though he can go a while without he prefers to drink nightly (There is a period of what was implied to be several months, though he was extremely weak and nearly incapable of movement at the end of it). He can also survive direct sunlight, though it will burn him severely and render him weak until some unfortunate creature with blood comes across him, and even then it will take time and a dark place to recover.

ROMANCE/RELATIONSHIPS: Armand is at the very least bisexual, having had multiple relations with both genders. I am very open to the idea of him getting romantically involved with someone, but Armand seems to fall in love more with the idea of a person than the person themself. If he does fall for your character in either sense, I would expect you to be at least as active as I am, as your character would become in a sense his driving force. Getting him tied to a character and having nothing happen with the relationship would put Armand at a bit of a stand-still until he managed to find someone or something else to latch onto.
SEXUAL RELATIONS: Armand has had relations with quite a few of either sex, though for vampires of his canon blood is more enjoyable than sex. That doesn't mean that he won't give someone else the night of their life.
PHYSICAL CONTACT: Go for it.

ANY TRIGGERS/SECRETS/FACTS YOU WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT: His old human best friend, Ricardo, is one trigger you might not want to hit, though it is unlikely for any to know that story. Aside from that, looking down on him or calling him childish tends to set off a smaller, quiet sort of fury that will count as a sort of black mark against your character in his mind.



Permissions for YOU!
MIND GIFT: Armand is capable of mind-reading as well as speaking into other people's minds. Can he do this with your muse?
SPEED / CLOUD GIFT: Armand's capable of moving at speeds faster than the human- and very nearly vampire- eye can see, giving him the illusion to teleport. Likewise, the Cloud Gift allows him to defy gravity, giving him the ability to fly and stand on ceilings or walls. He seems to prefer to have his feet on the ground during a fight, but that doesn't mean that he won't use it if it is helpful Would you count this as god-modding in a fight?
SPELL GIFT: Armand can influence weak-willed individuals into a trance-like state, and even call out to people who might wish for death and invite them to him. He does not use this terribly often since he began preying on the evil-doer, but would you be opposed to it if he would use it?
