Skyler grew up in Whatcom County in Washington State as the daughter of a small farming family. She was quite miserable. Her parents tried to teach her about farming and raising farm animals and even riding horses but these things did not really interest her. She loved to read Tokin and Lovecraft and books on vampires. Anything she could get. The internet greatly aided her in this once she finally got a laptop.
Even in middle school she was a bit of an awkward freak. One time the girl bully was trying to intimidate her and Skyler made an elaborate gesture to cast a spell to turn her into a frog only to be mocked in public. Skyler then grabbed the girl and bit her neck drawing blood. After two weeks of suspension she returned to school and was never seriously messed with again. Skyler, who was much smaller, always gave that girl a big toothy smile whenever she saw her again.
Skyler was neither a bully nor violent by nature. She had just hit her threshold and refused to be bullied anymore. Growing up on a farm with animals she simply made the logical leap that sometimes a smaller creature can chase off a larger one if absolute ferocity and lack of fear is used. Growing up on a farm she had seen a 16 pound cat can intimidate a 400 pound bear for example! Why would humans be different? She was correct and her punishment was quite acceptable in her mind.
By high school Skyler’s bloody act was a bit of legend and a group invited her to join their gaming group which she was quite excited to join as a freshman and they were upperclassmen. She enjoyed several different gaming systems but really liked the World of Darkness vampire genera. Sometimes table top and sometimes larping. During lunch she also enjoyed beating “experts” at Magic The Gathering as a “novice,” however her reputation grew where no one wanted to play with her.
Skyler had a difficulty with school and fitting in with normal society as they are just such simple sheep. There has to be so much more. As brilliant as she is she struggled in school as she barely paid attention to her classes and her attendance was very bad as she would setup secret gaming sessions instead. Despite this she was still able to get a scholarship to Western Washington University.
College has been an annoyance for her but with her scholarship and her family urging she was compelled to go. With the economic crap her age bracket have little actual job potential so she has mostly been focusing on her other worldly gaming. She has really embraced being a vampire and even gotten custom acrylic fangs. If boys, or girls she is not picky, are willing to give up a little blood for her then well she is willing to trade what she wants for what they want.
Skyler has taken a job as a waitress at a Denny’s near the campus to make money to fund her interest of attending the various local conventions in the state. There is enough “throw away” food for her to “liberate” and keep her food costs down that she can spend her money on gas and con-tickets.
