Merits Efficient Digestion (3), Inoffensive to Animals (1), Literacy (1), Multilingual (Arabic, Avar, Latin (passing familiarity from Academics), Turkish, Venetian) (2)
Clan Weakness Warriors are marked with their tradition of diablerie. Warrior Assamites always confirm as positive for diablerie whenever scrutinized with supernatural powers, even if the character has never tasted the blood of another Cainite.
In addition, an Assamite's skin will begin to darken with time.
Efficient Digestion (3 points) Your internal vampiric systems work faster and more effectively than most, granting you more a greater yield from feeding. Gain an additional blood point for every two you consume.
Inoffensive to Animals (1 point) Not all of the curses of unlife have fallen upon you. Your presence does not disturb natural animals; instead, they treat you as they would any ordinary mortal.
Literacy (1 point) You are a learned scholar, able to both read and write. The Merit assumes that you can read and write with fluency in your native tongue, as well as Latin and any languages you may have gained through the Multi-Lingual Merit.
Multi-Lingual (2 points) Through patience, study, and/or immersion, you are able to speak another language or languages with native fluency. This represents a full command over the language. For each dot of Intelligence your character possesses, you may know one other language. You may also use this Merit to reflect secret codes, cants, jargon, or sign language as well. Additional languages increase the cost of this Merit by one point per language.
At fifteen Durdona is a bit of an old maid but those days are near an end.
She is the daughter of the proud and ruthless Avar steppe warlord Yabghul III the Greater. Alas political infighting has left her an orphan. Her dishonorable uncle Mehmut though has connived an escape from the the steppes. He has taken his family and Durdona into the West. Along with them he has brought his elder brother's accumulated wealth and a shadow of his political power. Though the marriage of his harridan niece he hopes to stabilize his own family's political situation and eventually rise in stature once more.
Durdona was raised on the steppes as a child and can handle herself upon a horse and with a bow. Eventually her tomboyishness forced her otherwise doting father (at the insistence of her jealous uncle) to send her away to Constantinople to study the art of courtly womancraft as a girl-in-waiting. In part this was to break Durdona of her wild spirit but the experience had the opposite effect. While Durdona practiced poetry and needle craft. She also learned to read and became acquainted with a range of philosophy and science. She learned to conceal her rebellions behind a veneer of polite but often pointed discourse and the occasional stomach-disquieting garden herb used as a dinner spice.
Durdona stands 5'2" but seems to loom larger. Her spirit is that of an furious valkyrie. She has dark brown hair and an olive complexion reflecting the multiculturalism of the region she was born into.
