[PAY TRIBUTE TO THE VAMPIRE OF BAYLEM]
"The night is special...
a pungent darkness of thrilling wind.
The night is my element, my home in its rough endless folds,
it empowers me...
The soul of night has merged with my own...forever spliced."
A dark sentry in the shadows among carved stoned gargoyles. A nightโs watch over the city? A prehistoric predator? Or a beast evolved? This winged-creature turns loose in the concrete jungle of Baylem. All teeth and talons, eyes unblinking. It knows fear because it feeds off it. The Dark Angel. The Guardian Devil. The Vengeful One. His name is Kirk Langstrom and he is a pseudo-vampire who lives as a vampire hunting vigilante. His vigilante persona, the Baylem Batman, is counted by the officials of his hometown of Baylem City as a "domestic terrorist," and is being pursued by the authorities. Kirk himself is a stoic outcast. He lives and fights in Baylem, where vampires seemingly influence every aspect of the city unbeknownst to the humans living there.
sually, a black shape is seen moving too fast to fully make out what it is like the shadow in the corner of your eyes gone when you turn to look. When it fully comes to view, its face is covered with a black helm accompanied by a powerful frame covered by a black callapase cape with pointed protrusions all along the bottom. U
Out of the suit, Kirkโs wardrobe is dark, looks younger than his age with a milky white complexion, has a strong muscular frame, and a low voice. He has straight masculine eyebrows, a smooth bridge of a nose, with steel willed reserved eyes that are quite unique with dark circles around them. His lips are full but tightly drawn as he is a man of few words and his hair color is dark often hanged before his eyes.
Kirk is highly private, keeping things close to his chest: feelings, plans, levels of trust. He is highly guarded, at best reserved and cautious, at worst antisocial and paranoid. Kirk is complex. In his own way, he cares for people and believes idealistically in their better nature and second chances, but struggles with two of the fundamentals of relationships: communication and honesty. He has anger issues, a dark sense of humor, obsesses, and can be judgmental and hypocritical. Heโs an idealist at heart but a broken man in an extremely terrible world. Sometimes Kirk is disturbed by the awareness that his is not a sane way to live. Sometimes he is solaced by the lives he has saved. But the life/death contradictions still rise and burst in his head like a vampire arising when the sun has died.
Kirk Langstrom is not a supernatural vampire in the sense that we come to usually know them as; he is a pseudo-vampire, whose abilities stem from his fatherโs experimental DNA. As a result of this, Kirkโs powers are similar to vampires with differences.
As a pseudo-vampire, Kirk is beyond mortal limitations, his powers allows him to not only move fast (can run up to 70 mph and dash in any direction in the blink of an eye), but see better at night and hear with amazing clarity, detect specific persons, objects, substances with his pseudo-vampiric senses that are imperceptible to normal humans. Kirk can shapeshift his nails into protruded claws and develop razor-sharp fangs. His power also extends to his strength allowing him to strike with inhuman force enabling him to break through strong, sturdy barriers. His strikes also allows him to send opponents flying through the air. He can lift and support great amounts of weight. One night, while out on a hunt, Kirk shifted the weight of a 2.15-ton car with one hand. He can coordinate his body with perfect balance, equilibrium, and flexibility- being able to leap from the inside of one building into the building across the street. He can leap over cars with simple running moves and perform amazing aerial maneuvers.
During his time training with the Black Lotus, Kirk developed psionic abilities such as "ESP Gliding" where Kirk glides through the air similar to flight, and "PSI Detection" - sensing the presence of others in his vicinity (can extend his detection with innate echolocation ability). He also became highly resistant to mental intrusion, but Kirk's greatest psionic ability is called the "Black Lotus," an attack of highly compressed energy in the form of a ball that fires at a target in a straight line.
Vulnerabilities: Like vampires, Kirk is afflicted with uncontrollable desire for blood. Because of his constitution, Kirk can withstand the aroma of blood much better than vampires and is able walk around during the day. However, sunlight weakens him greatly. Symptoms are a sudden feeling of exhaustion and ever increasing lassitude, leaving him struggling to just move around and defend himself properly. Another vulnerability is his hearing. Kirk's ears are ten times more sensible to sounds than human ears. Therefore, it can leave him vulnerable to certain frequencies that can be painful to hear. Finally, like most living beings, a wound to the heart or decapitation can end him.
Pound for pound, body armor pales in comparison. This advanced suit is featherweight and sewn in a single-piece memory-weave pattern, stretching comfortably over Kirkโs body. When not worn, the suit folds neatly and compact. It is designed for maximum utility, the suit is both fire-retardant and chemical-resistant, with a thin triple-weave synthetic spider nano-silk overlaying a magnetorheological fluid, incorporating the latest in cutting-edge technology. In addition, Kirkโs scalloped cape doubles as an offensive weapon: its weighted ends provide a physical wallop in tandem with psychological impact. The suit is completed by a blessed dully gray-colored silver, synthetic osteoderm exoskeleton (thereโs a separate one for the cape) to provide further protection against the supernatural. The helmet - Kevlar and Twaron-lined with some steel gorget (providing extra protection over his skull) - features various mirco-electronics links, as well as multiple visions mode including zoom capabilities, and includes breathing apparatus, diagnostics, and sound protection.
WEAPONS: Besides several throwing knives (with variety effects) about him and his utility belt housing various items, Kirk carries a small arsenal on him during his nightly patrols:
Sword of Woes: At Kirk's side, usually covered by his cape, is a specially designed Tantalum-tungsten alloy straight, double-edged blade. Narrow and honed to a razor's edge on each side. A Thin engraving coding of vampiric language in red runs down the center. Light glints dully off the grey metal. Runnels in the blade are coated with a bioweapon, it produces cyanides on contact with Hgb. Cutting away from the edges is fine, but if you sink the bioweapon in anything with blood... Nasty to any living creature with blood. The sword itself can collapse into two blades.
Dark Claw: A gauntlet with unearthly resistance to almost all forms of attack. Long ago, the gauntlet was forged in another realm with otherworldly materials giving an odd-looking gray to it and nightmarish appearance. Adopted by Kirk, in his hand the old spike is immaculately civilized yet frightening lethal, a sort of feral floral.
Kirk's Gun: A sleek, specialized semi-automatic pistol equipped with a built-in laser-aiming module. Clips are loaded with custom ammunition, including exploding ordinance and heat-seeking bullets. It has an ultraviolet flashlight attached. In addition, the firearm also interfaces with Kirk's visor to quick draw targeting. That means fewer bullets and pinpoint accuracy.
