Concept and Details:

Backstory in Brief

Born Tejed Garat, he lived in the Southern Wilds for his entire life and made a living as a tanner and leatherworker. He neither gained fame, or fortune, from his work. He lived with his mother who was a half-breed. His father was a random fling.

The first few centuries were heavy on Tejed. He had moved away from his home to a wife but was unable to bear children. Then she died of natural causes. He remained in their old home, and various couplings never resulted in off-spring to the point that Tejed was by gossip considered sterile. Each century saw more and more lovers die, with no memory walking the earth - the concept of children in Tejed's eyes.

Returning to his mother's home, the only one he knew who would understand the plight of a long-lived in a short-lived world mother and son would ultimately turn incestuous - until his mother wanted children to which Tejed could not give. She abandoned her son for other pastures and, enraged at having to lose a long-lived before even a century, succumbed to his loneliness and killed her in cold blood.

The cycle of isolation, companionship and abandonment would haunt Tejed for his entire life. Well into his venerable years is when he met Juliette Domeil. A Queen. His Queen. He would no longer be lonely. He had a companion. She just...hasn't realized it yet.

Plot Concept

Vernet, the name of Tejed's latest victim, has stalked Juliette her entire life. Whether by his advanced age, his life or both he suffers a form of psychosis in which he believes Juliette is his Heartqueen. To him this bond is not fake, and he feels and treats her as any heartmale would their bonded Queen. As there is no bond in truth, his advances were met with scared refusals on the part of Juliette and ultimately a manhunt led by Juliette's parents. By then however he realized why Juliette didn't respond to him. Something was wrong with him, and so he killed someone else and took their likeness to make himself better. That is how Tejed followed Juliette without her knowing - killing those whose qualities it seemed Juliette liked, then grafting them onto himself with the help of a Healer accomplice. When Juliette reached adulthood, he had undergone 20 different transfigurations.

Juliette's admission into Dark Haven was largely the work of Vernet. Afraid that no transfiguration would ever prompt Juliette to accept him vis a vis Juliette meeting and associating with males whom she actually fancied, just as a part of life, made him concoct a scheme to expose Juliette's Red Jewel and thus get her sent to Dark Haven wherein he would capture and transfigure himself with a resident who shared his Jewel assortment and, as a common Warlord, easily able to take his place. Juliette was discovered, taken to Dark Haven, and Vernet Jalaberd died in his sleep. Tejed had Vernet's face and likeliness grafted to him and he has been working at Dark Haven ever since.

Now with Juliette locked in Dark Haven and Vernet having immediate access to Juliette at all times as a resident attendant, Vernet spends his time being in close proximity to Juliette - being the friendly face and a resident Juliette can talk to. It is the closest thing to heaven "Vernet" has, and will kill anyone who threatens it.

Roleplaying Hints
Due to his madness focusing on the fact that Vernet is somehow physically flawed, he is extraordinarily narcassistic. His face must be absolutely perfect. As a matter of fact his whole body must be absolutely perfect. Therefore he is free of blemishes or birthmarks, his body is handsomely angular and he hates. HATES, something marring his form. Anything from a cut to even spilling something on him will make him unnaturally aggressive. Especially if it's his face. Marring his face will force him to the killing edge.

Personality-wise Vernet is a frankenstein. He has brow-beaten himself into liking the same things Juliette does, not liking what she doesn't and cultivating traits of people throughout her life she has liked. As such he presents himself as a n'er-do-well and free spirit with a solid foundation to earn her respect, trust and admiration. His masterstroke is to become a close friend to Juliette, so much so that she will accept his offer of wearing her Control Ring when she is released from Dark Haven. Then he will have all of her, even if it's through the ring.

Plot Arc Activity
Noah's casework and attempts to release Juliette through the Territory Court has not gone unnoticed. Vernet desperately desires for Noah's efforts to fail. He attempts to, indirectly, antagonize Juliette into proving she needs to remain in Dark Haven, giving her fever dreams via drugs to make her seem mad and will ultimately go outside of Dark Haven and begin hunting Noah in an effort to stop the case.

Vernet's plot activity will conclude with his identity being discovered, the truth of his actions revealed, and his death.
