Like most vampires, Eleonora started off living a normal life. She was born to a middle class family, and spent the majority of her childhood life studying and learning about the outside world. A Young Eleonora aspired to be a military surgeon, much like her father in the first World War. Her eagerness brought her to the tops of her classes, and soon enough it was time for the ambitious girl to head out to a prestigious university out in the mid west. Her family and friends were all very proud, but completely unaware that she would be leaving permanently...
Eleonora fit in very well and quickly with the college crowd, but was mainly unimpressed with most people that she met. Spending most of her time hidden away and studying, Eleonora focused on her reason for being in school and rarely made friends for her first few weeks.
One night, Eleonora awoke with a strange thin pale man sitting at her bedside chair. When questioned, he described himself as; "the answer to her desires, and the end of her loneliness" which shocked, and worried her at first. She managed to convince him to leave, but found herself constantly meeting him again afterward. The more he spoke to her, the harder she found it to deny what he said, and quickly began to see herself enjoying his company. Eleonora began to assume that he cared a lot about her.
Months later, the two had gotten to know each other much more. Eleonora fell asleep in her bed by his side one night, and awoke cold, and starving. She opened her eyes and saw him sitting next to her as he had been when they first met. he told her that he was a vampire, that he had made her like him, and that they could now truly be together forever. In most cases, this was believed to be every girls fantasy. Eleonora, however...immediately got sick all over herself.
It wasn't how she wanted to live her life. Eleonora broke everything off immediately, scolding him for making it so that she would never be able to see her family, or friends again. She claimed that he was selfish for not asking her first, and even threatened to find a way to kill him if he were ever to return.
Realizing months later that she may have pushed away the last person she had left, Eleonora's mind began to fray. She became completely anti-social, putting all of her time and effort into training to become a surgeon, and succeeded quickly. As the years passed, Eleonora began to become a mindless operating drone. Her skills were all but unparalleled with those of just about anybody in the field. By the year 1965, Eleonora was known as "Stitchy" by peers because of her amazingly fast and steady hands when stitching people back up.
As years turned to decades, Eleonora had relocated to the rogue islands with it's super powered presence, and therefore high demand for skilled surgeons. She operates privately, but ironically almost always out of the hospitals of the region due to they're high number of Surgeries needed day and night.
Crimsona will often give a shy, or quiet first impression when meeting somebody. She unknowingly suffers from Paranoia and a cocktail of personal flaws including most recently; dependent disorder. In times where others ask her to make a big decision away from the operating table or taking a contract on somebody, She will direct them to Dr. Phantasmo. Or, at least confer with him first. She dislikes any sexual advantages, often warning people when they try to get close to her in such ways. Those who ignore her warnings, are usually slashed open, drained or both.
In the presence of other Vampires, Eleonora will usually become a little bit more talkative but a lot less trusting because of the trickery in past experiences. She seems to have little desire to learn about the history or present state of vampirism, often stating that she already knows enough about her 'sickness' to completely utilize it. It's not a blessing, or a gift to her, but a tool.
News in the Rogue Islands
Sometime within the last year, Eleonora has become the co-founder and head surgeon of a small underground company for developing custom and signature biological weapons known as Lime-Gen. She met a recent Zig escapee by chance while on her way through an ally in Port Oakes, and numerous times again as his solitary efforts often found him rushed back to her operating table. The escapee, or Dr. Phantasmo as he was sometimes known at the time showed a noticeable concern to the surgeon, and therefore they began to develop a mutual feeling of care for one another. Dr. Phantasmo Suggested that they work together to enter the profitable and interesting world of bio weapons, Eleonora joining him without question.
In the beginning of Lime-Gen, Phantasmo had been being tracked by a vast network of would-be assassins for his crimes against the countless bystanders he had used in his experiments. One dangerously close attempt was when a group of mercenaries hired by Phantasmo to protect him learned of the price on his head, and stormed into his lab, while he and Eleonora were researching. He was able to defeat them, but suggested that Eleonora train to defend herself.
Eleonora agreed with his suggestion, and took some funding to train herself in the skill of blade fighting. The combination of her already heightened senses, lightening reflexes, and great knowledge of human anatomy made her a candidate for becoming an assassin. She took her first steps down this path by hunting and brutally massacring anybody that would dare to claim the price on Phantasmo. In a short time, many of the contract killers abandoned Phantasmo for easier prey when they realized just how many of their peers were disemboweled and eviscerated. Her apparent preference in the color crimson, and slender female form paired with the sick nature of her hits earned her the nickname "Crimsona Viscera" in the local paper.
Most recently, after exhausting most of the funds while constantly moving, and pushing back the constant waves of assassins, Lime-Gen is beginning to go under. The duo of Crimsona and Phantasmo are trying they're hardest to cope, but owe money to some less than favorable debt collectors. The two founders are contacted by an ambitious Egyptian businesswoman, and offered funding for part-ownership of the company. Phantasmo reluctantly agrees. Luckily for Crimsona, this Egyptian woman is a vampiric sympathizer...
Technically, the only true 'Superpowers' Crimsona has have been gained through her becoming of a vampire. these include:
-heightened senses/reaction: her ability to sense and react to danger is higher than that of a regular human. ((as seen in; super reflexes))
-super agility: Crimsona can run swift, jump impressively high , dodge out of reach, and fight both very fast, and precise. ((as seen in; duel blades, jumping, fitness, super reflexes))
-blood regeneration: by feeding off of a downed enemy, or using one of her emergency blood tubes, Crimsona can steadily heal any wound, or damage on her body. If she takes enough damage, however...she will be unable to fight until she feeds. ((as seen in 'rest'))
