A dreary man seeming only to desire that of a life of solitude and solus, Valeray Amber was a only know for his dark demeanor and was born in the land humans as one himself and was raised as the son of a noble. The interesting tale of his life begins was when he was 18 and his sister had just given birth to a newborn baby and Valeray and made to comment “I wonder if the whelp will actually make it through the night with the horrid plague sweeping through the land, you should be concerned for your safety as well my dear sister.” both died in their sleep that night. The family, convinced that Valeray had cursed them he was exiled from the land of his birth and was forced to walk the earth in shame. For two years he had traveled like that of a common peddler until he was greeted by the company of a lovely young wench, while in a small town, who agreed to give him food a shelter for the night. while staying there he experienced a terrible nightmare that had woken him from his sleep on wake he realized the women had been watching him and there she revealed the she was a vampire and that she had also cursed him with the wretched disease as well.
To avoid conflict with other vampires or humans Valeray sought refuge in one of the darkest corners of the Plane of Shadow their his wish of a dark solitude was granted, for four long agonizing years alone in the dark realm drinking the blood of any creature he could to stay alive the vampire became subject to the long term effects of the plane of shadow turning his skin black as the shadows themselves his hair lost all coloration turning as white as snow itself the once human vampire had now become a vampire shadovar reborn in the shadow cursed darkness he now felt new purpose, a clenching desire for vengeance on the one who cursed him with vampirism.
to do this he sought out the demon of trade and services the demon known as Mammon. there he said he desired a way to allow his cursed body to bathe in sunlight again without the fear of a inevitable swift death Mamon seeing into his dark heart saw the true lust for vengeance and decide to exploit it. Mammon instructed him to retrieve the one who has prevented him from seeing the sun again so he may perform a ritual to help him with his curse. Valeray set out to find the harlot, vampire wench again he search lead him back to the town where she had cursed him. realizing that she was not a fighter he snuck into her home while she dressing herself he waited until she was done then grabbed her and smashed her head on the ground rendering her unconscious the her took her and returned to Mammon once there Mammon was pleased and surprised that he had not killed her. Mammon instructed him to cut her heart out and consume it using a demon knife he had given him. While he was doing this Mammon spoke word of incantation that made it so Valeray started to seal her soul inside his body. After the task was complete Mammon then ask to see his arm there he stabbed into one of his veins while he said “Your curse is now lifted so long as this sword, that I now craft from your black stained blood, is sheathed as it too sheaths to bulk of your new power and weakness but one the blade in draw all will be returned to you so I say from this curse sword payed with a young girl’s life, you name now shall also now be Velatous and this you blade Violator.”
After the ritual was over the newly proclaimed Velatous had realized that he had extinguished the girl’s existence completely, so out of respect for the source of his new found pact he burned her body on the spot and proceeded out of the demons lair. Now after four long years of hiding in darkness Velatous started to head out in the light of day with his new sword sheathed upon entering the daylight his curse black skin became a pale white his hair reverted to his natural black color and his fangs had disappeared the only thing that stayed irregular was his yellow iris but his sclera had reverted back to white instead of the demonesque red. At that moment Velatous realized that his new dark destiny was now to be forged and he would follow neither that of evil will or goods law instead only serving his selfish self-righteous goals as Velatous the cursed blade wielder.
