My entry this week: Dracul the Solomonar!
My entry for HeroMachine’s Character Design Contest #391.
Dracul Niculescu was born with a strange mark on his forehead. It was a symbol of his destiny: to become a Solomonar, a wizard able to control the winds, thunder and hail and ride dragons. As an infant, he was taken away to a remote cavern in the Carpathian Mountains, where he learned the way of the Solomonarii and how to control his mystical powers using his magical axe.
Now Dracul lives a double life, pretending to be a beggar in the streets of Bucharest, a disguise that serves both to hide his true identity and to test the goodnes in the hearts of the Romanian citizens. To those who aid him, he becomes a guardian, protecting them with his powers. To those who mistreat him, or do so to others on his presence, he summons the powers of nature to punish them.
P.S.: Gotta be honest, it was hard not to go the obvious route and create a vampire lol
Ileana Cosanezana is a direct descendant of her great-many times removed “Mythical” Grandmother. Who once fought against evil forces and used her voice for enchantments of Healing and revive those who exhausted their energies in the fight against the evil forces. Ileana, who has the same abilities, now also adding weapons work by way of the Rapier, uses it to fight criminals who victimize her city. She also is on guard against her family’s nemisis, Zmeu who once kidnapped her ancestor to force her to wed him. Considered the most beautiful woman living in Romania, she hides her face when fighting elements of evil.
Challenge closed. Results posted shortly.
