Lenore was a member of the Council of Sisters, a quartet of vampire women who ruled over the land of Styria and prayed upon the humans around their territory. Gentle in appearance, Lenore's role was that of the chief diplomat; she could hold her own in combat if needed, but her primary task was maintaining the council's (often strained) relations with neighboring powers when war was not appropriate. Lenore opted to use deceit, flattery, and other forms of negotiation to get what she wanted. During one such occasion, Lenore seduced the Forgemaster Hector into entering a slave pact with her, meaning he was bound to her commands and was unable to betray her. With Hector's skills, the Council plotted to create an army of Night Creatures that they could use to control a large part of Wallachia.
However, after the Council leader Carmilla plotted to use their new army to subjugate the entire world, Lenore, who strongly opposed total human subjugation, grew disillusioned and worried that her role on the council would fade. She increasingly turned to Hector as a confidant over the rest of the Council. Ultimately, the Forgemaster Isaac attacked Styria with his Night Creature armies and slew Carmilla, although not before helping Hector free himself from his curse. Isaac spared Lenore at Hector's request but kept her as a de facto captive. With her position of power gone and her future at best uncertain, Lenore fell into a deep state of despair. With a final goodbye to Hector, she opted to kill herself by walking out into the morning light, burning herself to ash.
Lenore was a short, slender, and beautiful young-looking woman with pale skin and rosy cheeks. Her red eyes glowed with malice whenever she exhibited her vampiric nature and, as a vampire, she had abnormally pointed ears and sharp fangs. Her long ginger-red hair was partially tied into a thin yet long braid that travelled down the back of her head. The remaining hair was wavy and left loose.
Usually, Lenore was seen wearing a sleeved dark navy-blue one piece dress that flowed down to her ankles. The dress featured teal trimmings and a black belt tied around Lenore's waist that had a silver bat-shaped buckle. She also wore a silver necklace and brown boots, and occasionally a veil was draped across her head. Over the top of her dress, Lenore wore a fluffy hooded white cloak.
On the surface, Lenore seemed courteous, considerate, and even caring. However, this belied a masterful ability to convince, cajole, and deceive others into doing the Council's bidding. Even though Hector was effectively her prisoner, Lenore brought him food, clothing, and advocated for better treatment. Ultimately, she seduced him to have sex, at which point Lenore put on a control ring to ensure his and his night creature's loyalty and triumphantly returned to the rest of the Council.
However, it must be noted that Lenore's manipulations were never deliberately hurtful. In fact, by vampiric standards she was relatively principled, reportedly caring for injured spiders in Styria castle and musing about "humane" ways to feed off humans. It rather seemed that Lenore did not fully grasp that her manipulations caused pain in others. When she described Hector as a "pet," she genuinely began treating him as one, even taking him on walks at night and shielding him from her far more violent peers on the Council. It took time for her to understand why Hector felt so hurt by her placement of the control ring on him.
Lenore hated war. She stated that English soldiers killed her parents when she was a young child. She understood war's practical necessity, but her goal was not conquest unto itself but rather long term stability. To this end, she accepted the Council's initial plans to conquer more land as feeding grounds, but when those plans expanded to the entire world, she protested and was sidelined. This weighed heavily on Lenore, and together with the subsequent collapse of the Council, proved too much for her to bear and sent her into a spiral of grief and self loathing that culminated in her suicide in front of Hector, her captive-turned lover.
Powers & Abilities
Vampire Physiology: At some point in the past, Lenore was transformed into an undead creature known as a vampire. As a vampire, Lenore possessed several abilities that made her an apex predator capable of easily subduing and devouring any ordinary human. Her fangs grew in length so that they could more easily pierce through human skin, her nails were sharp and could easily tear through flesh, and her ears also became noticeably pointed.
Immortality: Like all vampires, Lenore did not physically deteriorate or die due to the passage of time, maintaining the same youthful outward appearance and vigor since her transformation. Additionally, although she could feel pain she was completely unaffected by most forms of damage. As noted by Hector, Lenore could likely survive having her throat ripped out and her neck snapped.
Shapeshifting: A powerful vampire, Lenore was able to manipulate her own physical form in certain ways. She was able to transform herself into a swarm of small flying vampire bats. During this process, her brain was presumably separated into a hive mind-like consciousness shared between each bat in the swarm. Additionally, Lenore could change her physical structure into a body made up of mist. While in her air form, she could phase through small gaps.
Superhuman Speed: Lenore was able to move at speeds that no human could reasonably match. While in combat, her movements appeared as a blur and were too fast for the untrained human eye to properly register.
Superhuman Strength: Lenore's vampiric physiology bestowed her with a level of physical strength that would typically be considered unnaturally high for someone of her size and frame. She was able to effortlessly lift up and throw Hector with a single hand, and could also kick him several feet.
Sunlight: Like all vampires, Lenore was a creature of darkness and the night who had a natural aversion to sunlight. When exposed to the rays of the sun, Lenore would begin to burn as though she was on fire and would eventually turn to dust. For this reason, Lenore only ventured outside under the moonlight.
