Description (if an NPC) or name of your creator/gifter(if a PC) ( Please be as specific as possible, who your creator/gifter was, why he chose to change you, where is he/she now?):
Oringo Ramsey is the 8th and only living child of Arapmoi and Nkosazan Ramsey. Born in the winter of 1934, in his mother’s hometown of Sahel, South Africa, Ringo’s family has been part of Vyusher R’asa for generations. He was gifted at a young age, like the rest of his family.
Describe your character’s personality: Ringo is a pleasant man with a severe and calculating personality. He employs his ability of Frightening Visage in his daily life as well as his professional. He is handsome, even with his caricaturisation tattoos that were caused by silver. Like most killers, he is charming and friendly.
Describe how your character would appear to a stranger (I.E. typical dress, way they carry themselves etc.)
Tall and lithe, he carries himself with liquid grace and a demanding presence. Ringo’s wardrobe consists of neutral colored, light weight slacks and button up linen shirts that he leaves open to expose his chest and more caricaturisation tattoos.
3.What does your character like?
White woman – the contrast in skin color is always fascinating to him, being so dark skinned.
Clubs – the night life has always intrigued him; the bright lights, sensually swaying bodies, and fresh meat
Therapy – Ringo has had a long time therapist on retainer who listens to his complaints of humanity and stupidity. He enjoys talking to someone of his exploits, bragging to his therapist who has been threatened with death if he ever spoke about him to anyone. Therapy is fun.
Mortal weakness – Humans are too weak to be anything but cattle. They are annoying for how weak they are and being around them for too long does irritate him to no end.
Being poor – growing up in South Africa, even being part of one of the more powerful families in the pack, life was hard as a child. VR’s are nomadic by nature, and without the roots for solidarity, luxury provided by money was hard to come by. He swore he’d never live that way again.
(For humans) Describe what abilities you see your character having if they were turned.
What are your fears? (please choose and explain 3 minimum)
Dying alone – His brothers and sister, all 7 of them, are dead, and by nature a wolf runs with a pack. There is unity, unspoken loyalty, and tolerating love within the pack – you are never alone with your brethren. The thought of no one to care for him or no child to carry on his name stirs a fear in him that is unspoken, but very real.
His reflection – not a normal mirrored reflection, but while using his frightening visage. The ability to instill fear into others is intoxicating, but his own terrifying reflection has given him disturbing nightmares.
drowning – Ringo absolutely hates everything involving the water; swimming, sailing…having almost drowned as a child has left deep emotional scars.
What is your character’s strengths and weaknesses? (please pick 3 minimum of each and explain in detail how and why this affects your character)
Ordinal-linguistic personification – Ringo posses a form of synesthesia (stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway) in which ordered sequences, such as ordinal numbers, days, months and letters are associated with personalities. In layman terms – he associated personalities to numbers. It gives him the uncanny ability to remember any given sequence of numbers, making him extremely proficient mathematician and possess a limited photographic memory.
Combat training – Ringo possesses 40+ years of hand to hand and military combat training. This coupled with his werewolf abilities has made him an extremely dangerous man and efficient hired killer.
Religious belief – although nothing short of a psychotic killer, Ringo is extremely religious, explaining what he does is in the name of someone who controls everything and every one. He does not speak about this with anyone but his therapist, but he truly believes he is the Left Hand of God.
Material wealth – stemming from his poor nomadic life that killed his brother and sisters as a child.
Therapy – Has been in constant therapy for all of his adult life. He finds it addictive, the inner reflection of one’s soul, and uses this outlet to grapple with his acts as the Left Hand of God. People need killing, but he has to discuss the results of these deaths with his therapist whom he brings with him around the world.
Books – has an intense love for books and libraries. Has researched many of the great libraries around the world, and although he sees the wealth of information the internet holds, he prefers to read for pleasure out of a book. He is less likely to refer to the internet, limiting his ability to research quickly, thus creating a handicap that his men have to compensate for.

Quirks and Habits worthy of mention –
Personal History 3rd person (1st is acceptable) but please be as detailed as possible, this can/will affect your rp with other players.
The Ramsey lineage is one of the oldest in the VR family ancestry, but traditionally held no title within the pack. The only surviving child of a family of 10, Ringo has traveled the globe working for the highest bidder. He is cold, yet charming. Remorseless, but religious.
Ringo is a handsome man, but his appearance is in direct contrast to his personality. His body is covered in traditional caricaturisation tattoos, but his heart is darker and uglier than the surface. Growing up in the nomadic pack, he has circled the globe dozens of times in search of the type of work that rewards not only with money or contacts, but favors. Ringo has no moral compunction or loyalty, and although very much part of the VR, the mighty dollar dictates his actions resulting in his path crossing many times with the VR brothers, the Kadzait.
Ringo’s parents are still very much part of the pack, but he leads his own version of the Kadzait Pipers; the lishumi nakubili, a SiSwati word it is simply put, The Nakubili – (the twelve).
The Pipers and the Nakubili are well known to each other, the latter being hired killers. Ringo’s introduction to the other pack was through a random meeting with the beta, Iov Hammerthynn. The one eyed beast, twice his age, had bested him in an confrontation that kept the feud between the two groups alive for almost fifty years. His recent fight with the Pipers had resulted in a grudge match between himself and the new LT, Lothias Jameson, son of David Jameson. That fight resulted LT being almost mortally wounded and the continued fight between the two families.
Ringo is now in Nachton for business, despite the Kadzait and his VR brothers having located in the region. Money is the only thing that precipitates his relocation and the lure of money from an unknown, but resourceful client will introduce him not only back into his brothers lives, but the much hated species, the vampires.
