Personality: 

 Deirdre has mostly grown up mostly paranoid about when her illness would kill her as she was mostly led to think she would not have lived past the age of 15 years old. Mostly alone as a child until she had found Merlin in the oak tree he was imprisoned in by the sorceress Vivian, Deirdre kept quiet and to herself since she was mostly isolated away from the people in fear she would spread her illness to others and cause them to die. She was taught to stay away from people and hide herself. However, she opened up more when she had ran away from home one morning and found the oak tree Merlin was imprisoned in, talking to him while he was stuck and seemed to open herself and act like a child before she found a way to release him from his wooden prison and rightfully become his apprentice. When Deirdre became his apprentice, she began shining like a bright star as she was shown to be a rather talented and intelligent girl. She would be taught anything he knew and would hold his teachings close to her heart. 

When Morgana had attacked Merlin and bested him, Deirdre would use his spell of immortality to keep herself alive by quick wits and take his ring to go find the next person who would be the right apprentice to learn Merlin's teachings. As she travels around for centuries, she shows more of her kind and compassionate tendencies more until someone slams them down rather harshly, causing her to close up once again. She is quite a soft-hearted person, and has no problems defending those who are truly innocent. However, she does not mind dishing out some nastiness if justified. If one is harming someone else, she simply reflects it back to the attacker. 

When in a conflict, she tries to take a quieter and peaceful approach if she can, yet when she cannot, she will be more than happy to put someone in their place and put the fear of God into their hearts. While she does not normally seem intimidating, she does have times where she can.

Mostly, Deirdre is a very motherly and elegant person. She reflects the classier folk of numerous eras with humility and grace. However, that may also be because of her illness that she had to remain humble. Yet she does has trouble with her paranoia and depression. While she is physically attacked with illnesses that cannot be cured easily, her mind also has suffered trauma from her history from Merlin, to the Vatican and so on. 

History:

Deirdre was born to Nathaniel Lafayette and Medina of Cairo. Her father was a foreign prince who was cursed to be a dragon after a prophecy from his homeworld, and Medina a prophetess and advisor to Cleopatra before her fall. While time had ravaged her parents, a small period of stability came for her older sister Solfeige and herself to be brought into the world with a stable family for at least fifteen years. During Deirdre's first fifteen years of life, she was mostly bedridden and ill of didease later known to be tuberculosis. predicted that she would die around 15 years old, Deirdre was usually not allowed to go outside or see other people except for her family due to fears that she would spread illness to them.

Yet her older sister would grow strong and healthy and become known as King Arthur of Camelot. Deirdre however would get a chance to flee from her home for a small while after her mother disappeared and in her grief came to an oak tree that the powerful sorcerer Merlin was trapped in. She opened up to Merlin about her woes and he about his before Deirdre had mustered her magic to free Merlin from the oak tree that the sorceress Vivian entrapped him in, becoming his apprentice and traning with him until her adulthood when she would officially be recognized as the, "Sorceress of Auras". 

When Morgana would attack Merlin, Deirdre, and two other of his appretnices, he would be bested by her while the two apprentices fled and Deirdre would recieve his ring to find the next worthy apprentice of Merlin's teachings. She would take his spell book and quickly use her wits to distract Morgana and perform an immortality spell on herself before fleeing with the ring and book. She wandered through centuries trying to find a worthy apprentice until she would be called by the Vatican to hunt mosnters for them or risk others being put in danger around the 1400s to early 1900s. 

Deirdre complied and seemed to slowly care less about herself and her health as no apprentices had been found. Some candidates came and went, but most died in rather cruel ways that Deirdre could not help. So she would slay monster after monster until a mission in Transylvania would make her run into Vlad Tepes, also known as Dracula. 

She would identify him to be a vampire and not try to kill him simply because at the time, nothing was against him. He was a  man she found to be charming, intelligent and understanding of her opinions and mindsets and for once she felt at least to be around another person again. When she would leave, she could only hope to meet that man again under peaceful terms. However, her hopes were crushed when she kept hearing her leaders shout in anger that this Dracula had caused damning acts against God and how he needed to be dealt with, sending her to Transylvania again to confront him.

Each time they sent her, she would somehow find a way to not harm him during their fights and make excuses for centuries until the early 1900s. The Vatican now had caught wind of Deirdre's antics and gave her an ultimatum to go kill the vampire herself, or the Vatican would find a way to do it. Though not in the best of health at the time, Deirdre chose to go and put one final effort in before she would harm herself instead of trying to hurt him. It was something she would rather do than injure the person she had grown to love and care for.

When faltering between life and death, she had been saved and tended to by the vampire who had become confused by her actions, but could not help but reciprocate her feelings. This led the two to hold a long and careful marriage including a son that would be born until Dracula had been killed later on after their son would reach adulthood. Deirdre would leave Transylvania in grief and some would say she had returned what was done to her family to the Vatican before going into hiding until the modern era would come about.

Now she teaches as a history professor at Oxford University in England as well as her magics on the side to local witches needing guidance. She keeps to herself but combats her ailments and grief throughout the years. 

(Side note: Any history of Deirdre and Dracula was done through my old RPs I had and made them canon. This version of Dracula and son aka Alucard is from the Catlevania version. If there are Dracula RPers who somehow find my account and befriend me and do not feel comfortable with the history I had made for Deirdre, I can definitely pretend it does not exist. She will simply mention and old husband and son from centuries ago that happened to be vampires.)

  • By some miracle Judar didn’t get lost on his way to his next class, though only due to a pair walking down the adjacent hall with the same textbook and conversing momentarily before walking alongside them to their class. Along with his History course, he had applied to two other courses, with the current class now being an Algebra course – something he dreaded almost as much as his first class. Not that the magi was terrible at math, but he never did understand the need to learn such complex formulas. And unlike in Deirdre class, his Rukh remained silent.

    Since it was the first day, the lesson included an introduction of the professor before taking roll and seeing what his students knew through practice problems. While Judar participated and excelled when demonstrating his knowledge on math, his mind remained side-tracked. He never did discuss a place to meet with Deirdre, but it would be assumed that she wouldn’t be too far away from her classroom. An hour and ten minutes past before the instructor allowed his students to leave for the day, but gave the option to stay and practice more math problems. Unlike with his first class however, Judar was one of the first to leave.

    As the magi walked out, his phone made a noise – signaling that he had received a text. Upon looking he would see a message from Kaila, his guide, making sure that he was alright and asking if he needed a ride. His response stated that he was fine, but he would be staying at school for awhile. With that done it didn’t take long before Judar made his way back at the previous classroom; he wandered around a bit, and upon seeing where Deirdre was he causally approached her. "Enjoying the weather?" He spoke to simply gain her attention, while a part of him surprisingly hoped that she didn’t have to wait for him too long.

  • {I did see the Sorcerer's Apprentice ;) I have a couple of ideas - but feel free to veto them if you don't like them :)
    1. Either Deirdre's search brings her across Stephen as a potential candidate for Merlin's successor
    or 2. Her search brings her to a potential successor that Stephen is also trying to protect }

  • Something, or rather someone caused it, crashed behind her. Sam didn't even allow herself to turn around, she simply let out a breath and hoped to god that wasn't a camera. They were expensive, and while she could afford them out of her own pocket, the budget and studio could not. She knew better than to do a favor for any studio harboring a scandal. Part of her being here was to invest, maybe buy it out start her own, but until then she'd spend no money lest she be ripped the fuck off.

    Letting out a sigh of frustration she heard an exclamation of it being suddenly cold before three voices told him to stop whining. She grinned to herself but focused on her conversation with the founder of the studio. Giving her a bullshit excuse to the scandal in question. Truth be told. The only thing she wanted was his employees to at least give them a better chance. 'They deserve better than another Whitman' she thought sadly.

    The moment her phone rang she smiled politely and stepped away to answer it, looking at the number she didn't recognize it, but it didn't stop the automatic greeting from slipping as she answered,"

    What's shakin' bacon?" She cringed and sighed before trying again, "You've got Samantha Nishimura here, if you're looking for my wife she's currently away visiting her rubbish uncle."

  • {Yes poor Martha who is now wreaking havoc or soon will be in another storyline I have going on.  I would think they did.  But maybe it would a couple of years that have passed since they last spoke.}

  • With very, very gentle hands Lapis would take the journal once Deirdre offered it to her and requested help. Delicate fingers slowly turned each page and chocolate hues skimmed each page. "I will start translating it but it may take me a while. Do you mind if I hold on to this?" Lapis asked as she continued to examine the journal.

  • (Thank you :) do you mind starting then?)

  • {What does Deirdre usually go around doing?  Maybe I can pinpoint a spot where her path might intersect with Stephen's ;) }

  • Judar once again gave Deirdre his full attention during her explanation, something that he only did when his interest was captured. While he was aware of the basics of the connection between life energy and magic, he had never encountered a being that used the same energy in their magic. In a way, however, the pair had another similarity: due to the Rukh generating its own form of energy that Judar then uses for the majority of his spells. But the magi snapped out of his thoughts before he became too lost in them, only to arch his eyebrow at the mention of certain amounts of energy burning out faster than others. At first he wouldn’t be completely sure on what Deirdre meant until she gave an example, to which a nod was given to show he was listening.

    It was an interesting topic for sure, but it was one that wouldn’t be delved into further for now as Judar became caught off guard by the mention of his Rukh. To the point where his eyes widened momentarily. 'So she can see them..' He thought to himself. Luckily for him it appeared that his Rukh wouldn’t get him into trouble. A few moments after the magi simply shook his head with a faint chuckle. "You could say that." Then followed the mention of the possibility of attending other classes which caused Judar’s gaze to venture to a nearby clock, seeing that he had a bit of time before his next class, but if he stayed with Deirdre for much longer he would be late. As devious as he was, lateness wasn’t the best first impression to make to his other professors. When she then joked about staying for her next class, his expression briefly showed his disapproval of the idea – but not wanting to disrespect her, he went along with it with a bit of his sarcasm. " It seems that we both have the same interest in continuing this later on, and as completely...fascinating as it would be to relearn today’s lesson, you’re right, I do have another class to get to." With that he walked over to where he sat to place a book in his backpack before putting it over his left shoulder. Afterwards he made his way to the door of the classroom but stopped to look over at Deirdre before speaking again.

    "I doubt your next class will end at the same time as mine will, but I’ll find you once it’s over." And in typical fashion, Judar then walked out of the classroom – not giving Deirdre as much time to respond as one might normally give. While the action might have been a bit rude, it was his way on insisting that they would meet up again. Though as the magi walked further down the hallway, his mind went back to everything that just occurred. Having a magic user as one of his teachers was certainly something he never expected... but the words on how her magic wasn’t as strong as it used to be seemed to stick out, leading Judar to be curious as to why that was as he ventured towards his next class. Hopefully he wouldn’t get lost this time.

  • {I like your thinking.  He could have donated money to an Orphanage or a school, which is how they first met.  I won’t forget how old she is.  And I am counting on her knowing quite a lot actually.  Yes, she just lost it when Bruce died.  Can’t wait to hear the joke, and who shall start us off…}
