Ambrosia is the current democratically elected Countess of Bloodshade. She's known to be one of Bloodshade's most irresistible and charming ladies, using this quality to her advantage. Ambrosia despises and has never touched the field of battle lest she brings harm to herself or extreme harm to others. Instead, she's known to have a number of loyal, battle-scarred and seasoned generals who lead the armies of Bloodshade into war, whenever it arises. Ironically, she's secretly a highly skilled swordsman but has never presented herself as such so that she won't dispel her aura of feminine charm, allure and beauty. It helps with negotiation and she finds it satisfying to be seductive and convincing. The Count is also known to have a strange love for certain male pursuits such as hunting and chess. Otherwise, she's a seasoned musician and experienced weaver. She's also engaged heavily in sports such as swimming, jogging, basketball, volleyball, gymnastics and even bull-riding.
Long has Ambrosia been a target for marriage by the high society of Bloodshade due to her cold demeanor and stunning beauty. To her, marriage is nothing but a crutch and a curse as she believes in the concept of free love. You could very well assume at this point that she's as liberal as one can be when it comes to politics. As seen in her portrait, she's wears her signature white outfit on official occasions although she has said that she loves keeping it on in the house or in public. Despite the overwhelming amount of derogatory remarks coming from quite a spectacular number of people both inside and outside of Bloodshade including a number of foreign leaders, her comfort is clearly more important to her than the opinions of sheep.
Now then, to be completely honest with you, Ambrosia is just a young and naive woman trying to have fun while making sure others can live a comfortable and happy life until they expire. She's a sweet and nice person to those who deserve it and an asshole to those who also deserve it. She won't hurt you unless you endanger her family and friends. She also comes off as an apprehensive and troubled lady at times mainly because in the nation's administration, she's surrounded by nationalistic humans, fanatically spiritualistic and militaristic Lizardmen, pretentious and egotistical elves, stubborn and obdurate Dwarfs, predatory vampires and finally, the unflinching Tomb Kings. Luckily for her, there are plenty of people that are not stuck to the traditions and rivalries of the past despite some legendary heroes of old persisting to this day.
Ambrosia's a staunch pacifist even if that makes her a disgrace to vampires!
Despite being superior to a human in terms of power, almost every other vampire in the nation is more proficient and powerful than Ambrosia. Ambrosia's juvenile cousins can also manage to overpower her but that could probably be attested to the fact that Ambrosia wouldn't want to accidentally bring harm to them. Still, no one would dare touch Ambrosia because her uncle, Konrad, and grandmother, Isabella, are at the top of the food chain and are ferociously protective of her.
Ambrosia, as well as all the other vampires of her race, are not your typical vampires. They’re not helpless against sunlight, silver, wooden stakes, garlic and whatever stereotypical vulnerabilities you’re thinking of although some do prove more effective than conventional methods
Ambrosia's hair is around 1.5 meters long. It can almost reach her ankles if she lets her hair flow.
If it somehow wasn't obvious, Ambrosia shows symptoms of a nymphomaniac.
Ambrosia loves cooking but she's horrible. Complimenting her 'food' makes her elated but you'll probably have to eat it to prove it.
Ambrosia is in love with alcohol. Her favorite type of alcohol is wine and she probably drinks around two bottles of it a day.
Ambrosia has managed to not drink blood for her entire life so far. She believes it's barbaric to do so since she doesn't need it to survive.
If Ambrosia drinks any blood except for her own, she’ll go mad and probably kill you. That’s the price she pays for not getting used to drinking blood early on in her life.
Ambrosia grandparents terrorized human and dwarfish civilization during their 50 years as Count and Countess of Sylvania.
Ambrosia loves meeting vampires from foreign lands since it humbles her to think the vampires on Bloodshade aren't the only vampires to exist.
Ambrosia has always been irreligious since her family has always been against the gods throughout history in an attempt to become ones.
Despite being a sassy maverick, Ambrosia is rather submissive to those who persist. It's not known if she just ends up being annoyed or helpless. Her personality has its limits and she'll simply agree with some people so they can stop getting on her nerves.
Ambrosia is a masochist and the fact that she's a vampire makes her able to tolerate this trait due to her strength.
Even though she believes in equality, Ambrosia definitely prefers vampires over any other race when it comes to love.
Ambrosia has rejected 347 official marriage proposals so far. This doesn't include all the informal messages she's been getting on social media
Ambrosia really likes kissing. Sometimes, she might not be interested in the person she's kissing. She'd actually just be interested in the pure sensation of kissing itself. As you can probably guess, a lot of hearts have been broken as a result.
Despite being a vampire, Ambrosia practices High Magic, also known as Qhaysh. It is strange because almost every vampire practices the Lore of Death, also known as Shyish, and only Elves, Skinks or Slann could access Qhaysh, until Ambrosia came along.
Childhood and Origins
It has been claimed that the young Ambrosia began despising the prospect of war ever since she was taken to war museums as a child, depicting the number of wars that Bloodshade had been a part of since the beginning of its creation. At that age, she had once asked her father whether any statues were erected in the names of those who would advocate peace. She received a sly remark and a denunciation of those who are afraid of the necessary evil of war, calling them inexperienced babes who would not handle the sight of blood. Despite that, she continued to separate herself from her father's ideals of violence.
Ambrosia's earliest exposure to education occurred in Sylvania, where a governess, Emmanuel Von Liebwitz, attempted to teach her reading, writing and mathematics. Her first book was "Perks of Being a Nightshade". With limited contact with her parents, Ambrosia became very close to her governess. She served as her confidante, nurse and mother substitute. The two spent many happy hours playing in Demigryph park. Despite that, she still had to go to public school according to the law.
Ambrosia has two older sisters. She interacted with them during her time as a toddler up until they became young adults. The three were your usual loving sisters. None of them felt jealous or intimidated by the other. However, Ambrosia leaned to Serath's side most of the time since she was much more emotional and tender, as compared to Helena. Since Ambrosia was the youngest of the three, she'd always look up to the two. Serath was always there to comfort her during her times of strife. Helena treated Ambrosia as if she was a loving drill instructor. You can attempt to imagine that.
Upon having the choice of making a living in Bloodshade or travelling the worlds, Serath and Helena decided to go and make their mark around the world as well as spread the Von Carstein name. Ambrosia was too frightened by the idea of leaving her only home into lands unknown. Today, Ambrosia has sporadically communicated with her sisters to make sure they're alright. Otherwise, the three have never been together ever since they completed their education.
Education and intellectual influences
Despite being a part of a notable family of vampires, Ambrosia hardly had any incidents regarding her nature. In fact, you'd confuse her for a human if it wasn't for her fangs being noticeable every time she opened her mouth and to some perceptive minds, her eyes were clearly not human at all. However, these features only made her more irresistible in the eyes of her human, dwarfish, elvish and vampire colleagues.
Due to the profession of her parents, Ambrosia had to switch schools a number of times during her lifetime as a child all the way up until she was a teenager. However, it meant that Ambrosia took the initiative in making friends and falling in love with whatever boy she found endearing. She claims to have had around 40 partners, both male and female, during her time as a high school student.
Ambrosia was a part of every clique whether anyone liked it or not. She'd could be the 'Queen Bee', garnering attention from all her admirers as a prep.
Whenever her grades were horrifying, she wouldn't hesitate to break bread with the 'nerds' and gain some of their knowledge and intelligence through 'learning osmosis'.
Ambrosia has always been a dedicated athlete and whenever she wanted to let go, she'd find the 'Jocks' and engage in whatever sport she had in mind with them. She'd also look to the 'Jocks' for sexual pleasure due to her own licentious nature which would've been a scandalous affair for her family name had she not made sure that none of her significant others talked about their adventures. This'd be achieved through a mixture of coercion and persuasion which would mean that she'd threaten them with false accusations of raping her, sleep with them periodically or make their lives in school miserable by isolating them from their peers through her sheer influence and popularity until their loyalty is secured. Despite how cruel she knew it was, she still enjoyed being some sort of master of her own petty fate.
Another part of Ambrosia would find peace with emos, rockers and skaters in school. Mixing with them caused suicidal tendencies to enter her mind This led to her abusing drugs and causing harm to herself. She only began to enter these cliques at the age of 16 when she was nearing college. Drugs that can take a hold on humans cannot affect as significantly vampires due to the higher tolerenace a vampire's body has to such substances. Ambrosia consumed these substances out of her own free will in order to dull the pain of her newfound depression.
Ambrosia began writing books at the age of 12. Her governess had helped her publish a book called "The Ebb of Time" when she was 16. It did relatively well for a teenage writer, selling around 10,000 books in the first few months. Her mother and father had discouraged her from continuing as they had other plans for her. Vlad sent her to the University of Sylvania to study law and trade. Ambrosia's years on campus were punishing. She fell into depression as she purposefully flunked her exams in trade and law, turning to a life of drugs, sex and art. She was well known as a pleasure seeker in college. She had been a part of a large number of various cliques thanks to her charismatic nature, evolving from her high school and middle school persona. Despite her horrible grades, she was on good terms with her professors.
Later on, her father died at the ripe age of 393. Ambrosia became miserable and on the verge of suicide. Her mother, Serena, allowed her to apply for the Moot's Academy of the Arts, giving Ambrosia some hope. She majored in the Fine Arts, Dance and History which she excelled in. Upon graduation summa cum laude, she went back to the University of Sylvania and majored in law, in honor of her deceased father's wishes. She managed to find interest in law as she had studied history passionately and managed to link the two subjects so she wouldn't get bored out of her mind. She managed to graduate from the University of Sylvania cum laude.
Years later, as Ambrosia was already Countess of Bloodshade, she was admitted to the Altdorf College of Magic as she began to show signs of innate magical ability. It was 4 years of worthwhile melancholy for Ambrosia. The teaching of magic gave her a newfound source of wisdom. You could say she felt enlightened by her stay at the college. Currently, she has a personal tutor who teaches her the ways of High Magic.
Ambrosia's bizarre and surprising stances on a number of policies made her popular among young voters, surprising a number of current MPs in her swift rise to power. She also went on a high risk/high reward path, calling for increased transparency of the government's actions. She managed to organize a number of protests in front of the Parliament which further increased her popularity. To most government officials, she sounded like a paranoid populist. However, her rhetoric had captured the attention of the Blood-Fire party who offered her to become their candidate for becoming the Count/Countess of Bloodshade. She won with a landslide, much to the surprise of the nation's elite, including Konrad.
Some Sigmarite political scientists attempted to explain her odd and unpredictable rise to power. They claimed that the breaking of tradition, from a noble, encouraged the people to support her betrayal. Others claimed that the prospect of a female running as Countess would be a revolutionary event in Bloodshade's history, spurring the populace into achieving the impossible. Ambrosia's charisma, wit and charm were also said to be major factors of her ascent. Some also say that her youth and energy made her a lucrative candidate as she'd be a bulwark of youth among ancient fossils in the Parliament. Some conspiracy theorists claim that she slept her way to the top, engaging in illicit acts with Bloodshade's rich and powerful. It could be possible but Ambrosia has angered most of Bloodshade's elite which acts as evidence against this conspiracy.
Ambrosia also has the ability to turn others into vampires through the process called the "Blood Kiss". With women, the process involves Ambrosia biting down on her own lips so that it may bleed. She also bites onto the subject's lips so that it may bleed as well. Ambrosia then passionately kisses the mortal so that their blood may mix as they make out with one another. With men, Ambrosia engages in sexual intercourse with the chosen one. Upon ending their session, the subject drinks the blood produced from her breasts.
She has the power to grow a giant pair of chiropteran wings to allow self-propelled flight. Her stare and voice are hypnotic and seductive, particularly to males. She can even induce sexual arousal in men and women simply by being in their presence. She is known to have the power of telepathy.
Ambrosia is an accomplished and consummate user of High Magic. She is currently able to practice most spells of this lore but she is not as experienced and talented as most other users but considering those other users are absolute titans of magic (High Elves, Slann and Skink Priests), Ambrosia is still a force to be reckoned with.
In addition to her supernatural abilities, she is an expert hand to hand combatant and has some experience with small firearms.
Despite all this power, Ambrosia is a responsible user, abiding by the laws set by the Guild of the Extraordinary. She finds little reason to use her powers. She also finds it distasteful to use her powers in an attempt to lure people into an intimate relationship with her. Either way, using her powers against other people's will is punishable by the law.
Ambrosia is irreligious. She doesn't deny the existence of higher powers. She refuses to worship or do the bidding of one. The gods of Bloodshade have shown themselves occasionally throughout the land yet Ambrosia doesn't fear their power or influence.
Thanks to her daring nature, an increasing proportion of Bloodshade's youth have joined Ambrosia in the way she thinks. However, Ambrosia has clearly stated that she refuses to become a figurehead for the irreligious populace as that'd make her no different than a pope, arch-lector and so on.
Ambrosia hosts a talk show every Mani's day (Monday) where she talks about religion and the gods. There have been times where she descends into rage, cursing the gods with every language she knows. Other times, she'll attempt to enlighten worshipers and attempt to make them forgo their loyalty to the gods through discourse and conversation.
Whenever she's in the mood, you'll often find Ambrosia organizing parades all around Bloodshade for the sole purpose of mocking and taunting the gods. She's even written plays where actors and actresses dress up as the depictions of the gods and find themselves in awkward situations. Ambrosia has taken part in these plays on countless occasions.
Thanks to her, Bloodshade has experienced an increase of irreligious people, most of whom are youth. This has caused conflict between the conservative and progressive members of society. MPs have called on Ambrosia to solve the mess she made but she has clearly stated that she won't pander to the the gods. Some have claimed that she wishes the population to become a secular one nearing the end of her term so that she may secure another term. When questioned, she said that she hopes people see the folly of following a religion and begin to depend on themselves, instead of the gods. Some think she's just mad because Aphrodite has been picking on her for quite. This has been assumed because Aphrodite is the one Ambrosia enjoys ridiculing the most.
Ambrosia has been the figurehead in criminalizing a number of religious practices such as sacrificing, dowries, baptism, the caste system, oppressive religious clothing (Hijab for example), refusing to transfuse blood, eating the dead, circumcision, exorcism and any self harming rituals. In fact, she'll go out of her way to ban any religious practice that she finds abhorrent. Even if she's not successful (this happens quite a bit), she'll inspire animosity towards those who practice it and pressure the Parliament into banning it by hosting organized protests outside of the Parliament building.
Environment: Dedicated to saving the planet, Ambrosia has enacted laws to protect Bloodshade's fauna and flora extensively to the point where a significant percentage of unnatural deaths were caused by wild animal attacks.
Recreational drugs: The legalization of recreational drugs can be attributed to her labor. Valyrian Mafias were given amnesty so long as they sell drugs while respecting the law simultaneously.
Welfare: The social elevation of working class citizens can be partially credited to Von Carstein since she imposed laws that helped improve income equality and also created stronger safety nets for the impoverished.
Healthcare: Due to her previous professions, Ambrosia Von Carstein sought to improve the health of the Valyrian citizen, succeeding to increase the average lifespan to 90 years of age. Through the promotion of healthy eating, calorie limits and taxation on fast food, limiting junk food marketing towards children and supplying healthy meals in schools, Von Carstein has drastically beat back the obesity epidemic that plagues many countries around the world.
Industry: During her terms, the Information Technology industry bloomed due to intense modernization of Bloodshade's Imperial Legion, education system and healthcare system. This cemented Bloodshade's prominence as one of the largest and strongest economies in the Pacific, forcing many nations to be dependent on its IT industry to get a lead in modernization. Paired with Bloodshade's many university programs that promote the STEM fields, Bloodshade has a permanent and influential spot in the Pacific's IT industry
Culture: Ambrosia was always a lover of the arts as shown by her generous grants and tax reliefs to struggling communities of artists, painters and musicians. She's always paid fortunes to 'artists in the making' in order to witness their work which led to a substantial number of people studying art and music at college. Undoubtedly, this soon led to the revival of Bloodshade's culture proven by the influx of masterpieces being crafted such as Leriana's famous "Dance of the Manticore" artwork which was sold for $200,000,000 Blood Echoes. The illustrious composer Flerianos De Trout managed to garner 100,000,000 Valyrians to his concerts over a period of 1 year for them to witness his legendary orchestra perform.
Ambrosia is a significant customer in the book industry, acquiring a staggering 200 million books solely for the Winter Palace's library. She's also visited a number of Valyrian high schools in an ambitious effort to press more students into realizing the benefits of reading, usually giving away books to those who are convinced. Bloodshade has also donated many age appropriate books to nurseries across the nation. It's safe to say that the book publishing industry is soaring partly due to Ambrosia's efforts.
Ambrosia believes that vampires are the most beautiful and sexually pleasing creatures on the planet. While she is a staunch advocate of equality, she strangely can't let go of that viewpoint. The introduction of Frøya into Ambrosia's life only proved that point even further.
On one Winter Solstice, Helen and Serath Von Carstein, as per usual, visited Ambrosia and their family. However, this time, they came back with stories of a beautiful vampire queen known as Frøya. They sold Ambrosia on Frøya by saying that she's just like Lady Godiva but unfortunately, her grandmother Isabella and uncle Konrad were not too pleased with the fact that their little one was interested in a 1138 year old foreign vampire, despite both being much more older than Frøya.
Ambrosia took their advice but ultimately ignored them as she and her sisters ventured off to Blodrike to meet this interesting queen. They managed to arrive just in time as a new railway station was being opened, noticing that Frøya was rather ecstatic about that. Ambrosia asked for privacy and bid her sisters farewell as they ventured off to the next country. Meanwhile, Ambrosia shoved her way to the front of the crowd and finally saw the queen in all her glory. Their eyes connected and Ambrosia was sure they'd meet again.
Unsurprisingly, it didn't take long for Frøya to fall in love with Ambrosia's eyes too and soon after the opening, she offered Ambrosia a personal tour around Regnbuehavn. Ambrosia happily accepted! The two went around the beautiful steampunk city of Regnbuehavn and while Frøya was busy describing the areas they'd pass by such as the red-light district, steam locomotive factories and summer palace. From the start, Ambrosia had boldly been cuddling with the queen which she did not mind. Afterwards, the two hopped on Frøya's own personal luxurious train so that they could travel all the way to the city of Nattfjord. Ambrosia was treated to a romantic dinner with Frøya and you could say the two were quite passionate about the romance bit! As they finally arrived, it was night time and all that was left to do was spend the night at Frøya's palace. The place was rather extravagant even compared to the Von Carstein residence known as Drakenhof Castle but Ambrosia was enamoured by the place just as much as she was enamoured by Frøya. For a while, Ambrosia had been helping Frøya build a model railway. It felt rather weird to her but to her, Frøya was adorable for having such a hobby and she played along. As midnight approached, Ambrosia and Frøya slept together and you can assume what the two did that night!
This was not the last time Ambrosia met her though! The two would meet a number of times afterwards. Dates would usually end up being a day of horseback riding, train rides, carriage rides, an evening at a theater or even just staying at Frøya's palace and building model railways! Ambrosia grew fond of Frøya immensely and she still does. It also helps that Ambrosia's got a sultry British accent which turns on Frøya whenever she tries to flirt with her as well as the fact that she's a beautiful and intelligent vampire. She even helps Frøya with mathematics whenever she gets the chance.
The one thing Ambrosia's having trouble with is drinking blood. She often avoids looking at Frøya when she does drink blood because she wouldn't want to think about entering a blood-lust and harming her or other people in any way. Ambrosia usually covers her mouth with her hands just in case some blood beverage gets spilled onto her then it won't be consumed but that usually ends up making Frøya tease her.
Regardless, Ambrosia is still in mad love with Frøya and it doesn't seem like she's getting any less passionate about it.
While Zheneyasil's idea of a first date was rather modest, it did not matter to Ambrosia as she found her to be a 'lovable innocent cinnamon roll' as Ambrosia likes to call people dear to her. Learning about Zheneyasil's humble beginnings, it made Ambrosia impressed and somewhat pitful, considering that she was the pampered child of two magnates coming from a royal line of vampires. Ambrosia wholeheartedly admires Zhen for the fact that she was able to pick herself up and make her name known to the people. While Ambrosia's content with the way things are going in Zitravgrad, you could say she's insanely proud of Zheneyasil's bravery in being the 'odd one out' in the government since that's wand while Ambrosia is somewhat secretly glad she's an atheist, she has definitely attempted to avoid bringing up Zhen's family so she won't upset her.
Nowadays, when they're together, the two meet up wherever they want to but it's mostly bars, parks and night clubs. However, Ambrosia has at times went out of her comfort zone for the sake of Zheneyasil's pleasure such as watching her practice her aim at shooting ranges but Ambrosia always discreetly attempts to try to discourage her from the use of guns but she is destined to fail in that regard. Ambrosia has an uneasy relationship with Zhen's cat, Cat, ever since she accidentally stepped on her tail one day but she always tries to connect with Zheneyasil's cat for her sake only. Even though Ambrosia's dead awful at it, she has been trying to learn how to ice-skate with Zhen only for her to slip and fall, pulling Zhen along with her. Ambrosia's not giving up but she's certainly not getting any better. Regardless, these kinds of dates make for cute memories between the two.
Whenever the two aren't together, Ambrosia thinks up of love poems and writes them down a letter sent straight to Zheneyasil. It only helps that Ambrosia's got great handwriting.
While Ambrosia has had daydreams of her and Zheneyasil being a married couple, cuddling next to a fireplace while Cat judges them for loving each other, she and Zheneyasil can't stop hating the concept of marriage. However, they still do love each other probably even more than they would as a married couple.
Once Ambrosia had cuddled up to the head honcho himself, Sing Scaletta, he was hospitable enough to invite Ambrosia to Stanier and she definitely accepted. Meeting and greeting the First Family was something Ambrosia and that’s where Angie came in!
Angie had seen Ambrosia for the first time when she was invited to visit the Scaletta residence. To her, it was rather appealing that she met a beautiful, cheerful and relatively old vampire like Ambrosia. It was definitely some sort of dream to her which Ambrosia happily fulfilled as she saw the poor girl go head over heels for her.
Ambrosia managed to sneak a message to Angie, much to her delight, so the two could finally meet up and have some fun together. Since Ambrosia had no clue what this strange place had to offer, they resorted to a trip to the cinema. The whole ordeal involved more cuddling and kissing than actually enjoying the movie but to both, it was much more worth it. Also, the darkness helped conceal them from any prying eyes or paparazzi.
Ambrosia felt affection towards Angie. She's a wild, bubbly and fearless (for a human) soul. It was no wonder that Ambrosia kept on visiting her. Despite the fact that Ambrosia doesn’t want to irritate her parents, that doesn’t stop the two from taking any of Sing’s car for a joyride! You can’t blame Angie for being sexually attracted to Ambrosia. When such feelings arise, Ambrosia would find herself bedding her without a thought in her mind although she does try to avoid doing so at times just so she doesn't look she's treating her like an object.
Ambrosia does her best to make sure that Sing and Angelina are content with the fact that a 30 year old vampire is dating their only daughter. Who can blame them? However, despite that, Ambrosia just can’t seem to stop herself from taking Angie out so the two can just live life and go wild like never before.
To Ambrosia, it’s almost like as if she met the human version of herself and that’s an idea she loves thinking about. There have been thoughts lurking in Ambrosia’s mind about giving Angie the ‘Blood Kiss’ but she usually stays away from that idea and hopes she doesn’t fail to Angie’s charms if the she finds out about it.
Ambrosia boasts a large number of provocative, revealing, skin-tight and tailor made clothing. Her Hand's wife, Candice Sato, is shown in the pictures below, wearing her clothing since she has a great figure to show off her clothing. No matter how immodest her clothing can be, she'll gladly wear all her outfits in any situation such as visiting a high-school, having a public speech, hosting state dinners, conversing with foreign dignitaries, participating in state funerals (She'll probably have black versions of all her clothing), being interviewed by reporters and congratulating sports teams in the event of a significant victory. She is shameless and will wear anything she wants, regardless of what people around her might think. Family members gave up trying to tell her to wear something more appropriate. Her grandmother is the only one supporting her fashion choices, claiming that a Von Carstein shouldn't be influenced so easily by others.
Despite how 'violent' her family is in Ambrosia's eyes, she still loves each and every one of them to bits. She doesn't feel unnerved by the fact that they have fought and killed. The only case where she'd ever use violence is if their lives are truly in danger. Ambrosia's got many distant family members but the people that she's truly close to are the ones listed below.
Isabella Von Carstein: Isabella is Ambrosia's grandmother. She's almost 3000 years old and there's no sign of her age showing. Ambrosia's grandmother was known to be a fierce and terrifying foe back when Bloodshade was split between different races. She and her husband, Ivan Von Carstein, became infamous legends. However, years before the confederation, Ivan died to a cabal of human witch hunters and Isabella went into hiding. Soon after the treaty of unification was signed, Isabella slowly re-entered society. She never apologized for the conquests she had with her husband Ivan. All she did was stay quiet and no one bothered her. Despite the fact that she hates violence, Ambrosia still loves to her about the many tales Isabella had to offer. To Ambrosia, Isabella is definitely a second mother but to anyone else, she's the personification of terror unless she's with Ambrosia. No one knows why she's so pacified when she's near Ambrosia and no one will. The best guess is that Ambrosia's calm and peaceful aura affects her grandmother in some way.
Serarth Von Carstein: Serath is Ambrosia's sister and probably the only reason Ambrosia didn't decide to take her life early on in her life. To Ambrosia, she's her guardian angel. The two have always been super close and they hardly ever fought except for the usual 'That's my toy' struggle that sisters usually have, except with more fangs, outbursts of magic and a touch of flying around. Otherwise, they're soulmates. The only time Ambrosia ever felt disappointed was when Serath and Helena left on an adventure. Even though Serath told her a billion times that she should join her, Ambrosia still felt a string of betrayal but she's thrown that grudge out of the window and every day, she's hoping the two would come back if only for a while.
Serath is a simple soul with not much desire in her life other having an adventurous life with her sisters. She does hope that once Ambrosia's done with politics, they can travel across worlds and get their name known.
Helena Von Carstein: Helena is also Ambrosia's dear sister. To her, Helena is, as previously stated, a loving drill instructor. She wants Ambrosia to do her best and sometimes expresses it in ways that can hurt her feelings. However, she always means well. She's much more traditional compared to Ambrosia and Serath. She loves the idea of being a 'noble' vampire. She definitely doesn't let her views conflict with Ambrosia's but they often do find themselves having heated conversations, especially regarding pacifism. Helena is also a rather sex driven creature and that's very well known among her family members although they keep on disciplining and chastising her.
