General character background/ history:

Seyda entered the city in July of 2004 after being turned by the vampiress annell. Her sire brought Seyda to the city for her protection, and then left her standing on the street with nothing. She was recruited by DarkestDesire shortly after her arrival for her new clan, League of Shadow Demons. By November 2004, she was promoted to the position of Second in Command. During her tenure, she held several other titles including Head of Intel, Head of Thievery, RPShadows Head Instructor, as well as pitching in anywhere else that needed it. After growing increasingly frustrated with the neutral spin the LoSD was taking, Seyda left the clan on September 7, 2005. On September 8, along with Rawnie, ArcticRainDrop, and Wolfshadow, the Republic of Ravenblack was born. Under Seyda’s leadership, RoR went from 4 vampires and a 100,000 coin donation from Dragonheart deLeionez and trinity to a double divisioned clan that was 1/5 of the Unholy Alliance. On January 10, 2007, Seyda took back control of the League of Shadow Demons and incorporated it as part of the current Republic.

Eventually, Seyda grew tired of constantly having to place the needs of the clans and their members over the needs of her wife. After spending close to three months grooming her childer, nitenurse St. John, to take her place, both Seyda and Asmia resigned their positions within the Republic. After spending a month in Greece for their honeymoon, both vampiresses began clan shopping around October 2007. Finally, on November 5, 2007, Seyda and Asmia took their place as members of the clan Yggdrasil. During this same time, Seyda focused on the relationships within her family, and the St. John family become one of the most recognizable bloodlines in the city.

Seyda slept off and on throughout 2010, waking for the Legacy war, when she came face to face with her former co-Consul, Rawnie. Once the war was completed, Seyda went to sleep as a result of exhaustion, her wife sleeping more than she was awake, and what she viewed as a betrayal from her oldest friend. She rose from her slumber in early 2013. Once she was fully awake and apprised of the status of the city in general, her theme of 2013 was karma; something that was dished out in droves throughout the year, with numerous vampires in the city getting it served cold by her orchestration. On March 10, 2015, ophelia, Seyda's long time best friend and clan leader, abruptly left the highly inactive Yggdrasil; leaving a Dear John note to both Seyda and Valens Dragosee. Valens also left as a result, leaving Seyda to try to revive a sleeping giant. After several months of effort, Seyda eventually gave up, letting the clan and the name fall into the history books.

In her personal life, Seyda dated a vampire named Argnosax for a short while, but while teaching RPShadows, fell for a student named Wolfshadow. The pair went on to marry and then spent an almost absent nine months before Seyda made the decision to sever ties. One month later, she bound to obsidian because both of the vampiresses were trying to heal from their respective marriage failures and took solace in the experience of the other. A somewhat platonic marriage, both vampiresses were seeing others during the course of their marriage, and in early August, severed in order to pursue these relationships. On September 21, 2006, Seyda and Asmia were bound in a very private ceremony with just a few invited attendees. They stayed bound until March 24, 2013, when Seyda ended the marriage due to Asmia taking eternal slumber. She began dating Rawnie Lautari-Dumont around this same time. After a brief romantic relationship with Rawnie, which ended due to infidelity on Rawnie's part, Seyda settled into a relationship and binding with Dea di Luna. This relationship was almost destroyed due to infidelity on Seyda's part, but the couple chose the hard road of putting their pieces back together. Unfortunately, due to Dea's inability to truly forgive and Seyda's inability to handle a relationship with someone who hated everything she loved, Seyda ended up returning to the city alone after her attempts to fix things failed. She severed the bond officially in July 2014. Soon after her return to the city, she began dating Dahlia. The pair were bound on October 12, 2014. In January 2015, the relationship was ended abruptly by Dahlia. Soon following, ladypeacek made her return to the city and after admitting to Seyda that she had loved her for close to a decade, the pair began dating. They were married in a private religious ceremony on February 16, 2015 and their civil binding took place on March 10, 2015.

Throughout her tenure in the city, Seyda has had three sires. The first was her maker, annell. The second was so i did him, who was her best friend and the person who had introduced her to her first mentor, Hesu. The third was to Drella D'dary, which had originally started as two friends who wanted to watch everyone's heads explode. Once Seyda realized that some close to her were legitimately severing ties and leaving because of it, which was the antithesis of the St. John 'each relationship is personal and not tied to anyone else' motto, Seyda made the decision to keep the connection in tact.

Seyda left the city on extended honeymoon with her wife after she gave up on Yggdrasil; she returned five months later to find that most of those that she cared for her severed her.

Merits:

Seyda’s biggest merit is that she will tell someone the truth…whether they like what she’s saying or not. There is no sugar coating to this ‘piress. If she thinks you’re useless, you’ll know it and know it quickly. She is generally very reserved towards those she doesn’t know, but fiercely loyal to those closest to her. She has a rather bizarre sense of humor that others in the city either find very refreshing or very annoying…there usually isn’t a middle ground.

Always thinking, if there is a way out of a situation, Seyda will find it. And if there truly isn’t, she’ll find a way to make it suit her anyway. She also has a sometimes unrealistic sense of responsibility, taking it for essentially anything negative that occurs under her watch. Seyda is also very willing to not only grow and learn herself, but to encourage everyone around her to do so as well, and if she’s the one that has to teach it, so be it. Seyda also has an uncanny ability to keep a lid on her emotions during most situations. It is very rare for her to really “flip out,” but if she does, look out.

Image



Flaws:

Very stubborn. If she has convinced herself that her point of view is correct, there will be no changing her mind. She has a tendency to be so hands on with things under her command that she neglects herself or stretches herself so thin that everyone feels that she’s neglecting them. Seyda has a rather arrogant public persona and has no problem slapping someone down if she perceives the situation as a challenge, whether it be verbal or physical. She is also extremely self-critical to the point of her self-deprecating comments offending those who love her. Being her own biggest critic is what gives her the confidence to be as arrogant as she is publically, as there isn’t a soul in the city who is harder on her than herself. In addition, Seyda is extremely hypersensitive to any situation involving her childer secondary to the death of Wyndcryer, as she feels responsible for missing the signs of her childer's sadness. This situation has led to a psychotic break through with a definite manifestation of paranoid schizophrenia. The hypersensitivity was blunted significantly after the death of her childe, Majica, which is how she was able to withstand the mass severings of 2016 without being completely devastated.


What she admires in her fellow vampires: Loyalty, Honesty, Following the work hard/play hard philosophy


What she loathes in her fellow vampires: Lying, Self Promotion with nothing to actually promote, Laziness, Those who whine about what others have yet don’t wish to work to attain the same, Stupidity, Disrespect

The People


Image


ladypeacek: Her wife and soulmate. The yin to Seyda's yang. It all started with one simple message passed from Seyda to Pea when both were relatively new to the city: "You're not fighting for what you think you are." That turned into a whirlwind where the pair went from friends to family, allies to enemies, from yin to yang until Pea went dead & buried. Upon Pea's awakening in 2015, the red head made it a point to stop Seyda's road to destruction. Love, devotion, and eternity followed. They bound via religious ceremony on February 16, 2015. They made their union legal on March 10, 2015.


Image


The girls. Seyda is very hypersensitive to mentions of either Wyndcryer or Majica, both of whom passed into the permanent sleep. First came Wyndcryer in 2009, which was the beginning of the downward spiral, as Seyda found it very difficult to cope with the guilt. Seyda never kept photos of her family until Wynd passed away; the only memento Wynd's MomPire has to remember her is a broken glass butterfly she fished out of her childe's ashes on the night she died.

Seyda has become more numb since losing Maji in 2015, making it difficult for people to find their way into her heart since. The relationship between Maji and her Momma was different than most; Maji ran her line independently but still part of the greater family, and the pair did not always agree on various methods used. But regardless of that, the pair had a solid foundation of love and respect that kept them together throughout the years. Seyda has remained relatively hands off of those in the Wilde branch since Maji's death, as she can hardly handle talking to them without overwhelming emotion.


Image


Seyda has become more distant and holds most at an arm's reach after the losses of Wyndcryer, Majica, and of her friendship with ophelia. However, she can be seen with her wife or one of these five women.

Liz Summers (upper left): Seyda has known the Spartan since RoR was allied with SIE. She did not speak with Liz much then, but she came back into Seyda's life through Majica and Rodargo. The pair clicked then and have been close ever since. Liz has played several roles in Seyda's life throughout the years: clan-mate, friend, confidant, lawyer, conscience. Liz severed Seyda after the latter had left the city, thinking she would never return. Upon Seyda's return, the relationship between the two did not change, even if the blood bond had.

Kiki (center): Seyda met Kiki several years ago when she was the childe of Pulse. The pair's dynamic has changed significantly over the years, starting with Seyda mentoring Kiki through a lot of things younger vampires go through to an air of pure acceptance and friendship currently. Seyda considers Kiki her tag-team partner; she knows that if everyone in the city decided to take Seyda on, Kiki would be by her side without a doubt.

Drella (upper right): Seyda met Dre in April 2013 and Seyda instantly saw a spark in the woman--enough so to label her 'the next me.' The pair quickly realized they thought very similarly and became quick friends. Sometimes, stability comes in strange places--after Seyda was caught in a moment of infidelity that caused several people to alienate her, Dre was one of the only non-relatives that never stopped caring or showing up. Seyda took Dre as a sire in early 2015 initially as a joke; once Seyda began to see who her friends really were after "going D'dary," she kept the bond to make a point. The bond was severed by Dre after Seyda had left the city, but their dynamic also did not change upon her return.

Annabelle (lower right): Seyda met Annabelle through Pea upon Anna's return to the city, and Seyda has adored her since. Affectionately referring to her sire-in-law as "Mom," Seyda has become fiercely protective of the woman.

nitenurse (lower left): The oldest friend out of the five women here, Seyda met NN through LoSD's school. Seyda initially failed the woman in a class based on her poor attitude. NN hung out into the school until Seyda was promoted so she did not have to re-take class with her, and the pair remained at arm's reach during the rest of Seyda's tenure in the clan. They did not speak again until Seyda called out her former clan leader for lying through an Editorial on the Grimoire; NN angrily showed up in defense of the Queen, but by the end of the conversation, realized that Seyda was not lying to her. NN left LoSD and joined RoR as a result. Seyda watched NN's work ethic and ended up handing her leadership of RoR once she was ready to step down. The pair have many shared experiences in the city from the good, bad, and the ugly. The pair both subscribe to 'business is business and personal is personal' and that is the way they have been able to keep their bond in tact even as alliances and allegiances have changed.
