Full Name: Grayson Jude Monroe Nickname/Alias: Gray Age/Date Of Birth: Eighty Seven Years Old | 10/25/1931 Race: Creature Occupation: N/A Species Group: European Vampire (Thea's Bloodline) | Royal Psychic Play-By: Ken Bek
Empathy: Being from a royal psychic bloodline, Grayson has the ability to feel other people’s emotions, feelings, and desires as his own. Now that he’s a vampire, this ability is intensified and is very dangerous. He can’t control the ability though so he feels everything because of this he tends to shut his humanity off a lot…. Sometimes his empathy can “turn it back on” forcefully, making it almost impossible to run from feeling emotions. He has a special ring that is enchanted so he can walk in the sun, but it has a dual effect - it keeps his empathy ability in check. This requires him to constantly have it kept up by witches.
Vampire Powers/Abilities -
Supernatural Speed: European vampires are incredibly fast and move in a blur.
Supernatural Strength: European Vampires are stronger than most species of vampires but it also depends on their age, as they get stronger as they grow older.
Supernatural Agility: European Vampires possess super-human agility. They have shown that they can move quickly, jump very high, climb, and run incredibly fast without difficulty or exhaustion. Vampires can jump with their super speed too.
Supernatural Senses: European Vampires have extremely keen senses of hearing, sight, smell, and taste that far exceed those of humans. They can hear whispered conversations, even ones in far of buildings and on phones, though most vampires typically learn how to tune out most ambient noises when it's not necessary to hear them. European Vampires can also smell blood from several meters away, and see in total darkness. These senses improve and grow stronger with age and experience as well. Their senses of taste are also enhanced, allowing them to detect the presence of drugs, alcohol, or even what the person ate in someone's blood.
Regeneration: European Vampires recover tissue from any form of physical damage to their bodies within seconds, though they still feel the pain of a wound before it heals. They can snap their bones back into place after they have been broken and have been seen to fully recover from gunshots, stab wounds, and torso impalement very quickly, so long as they had consumed a regular diet of human blood prior to the injury.
Healing Blood: European Vampires are able to heal humans by feeding them their blood, it will not turn them. The only way for them to turn is if they die while having the vampire blood in their system. If a drinks fresh blood from a vampire, a psychic and emotional bond is created. The vampire will be able to sense the location and emotions of the human.
Progeny Link: The one who made a vampire has a special link to those they create and can sense any pain or duress the progeny undergoes, and know when a progeny has died. The maker can "call" their progeny by saying their name out loud, causing the progeny to become aware their maker is calling out for them. The progeny experiences a shiver, and may be able to tell where their maker is. Lastly a maker can force their progeny to do anything they want, as long as they make what they say a direct order.
Immortality: They have the potential to live forever without aging.
Enhanced Emotions: European Vampires experience emotions more powerfully than humans. Emotions like love, joy, and happiness are magnified for vampires, allowing them to live life more intensely. This ability allows vampires to feel emotions at their peak regardless of their age.
Emotional Control: European Vampires have the supernatural ability to remove or dull their emotions by "turning off" or "switching off" their humanity, which is directly connected to their emotions. Doing so allows them to block out their more negative emotions, such as fear and guilt, allowing them to feed and kill without remorse, go against any opponent without fear, and relieve themselves of painful feelings such as grief, loss, depression, and shame. A vampire without their emotions is far more calculating and direct than one who keeps them on. However, the vampire can become a remorseless killer, and are almost unrecognizable from the person they truly are, as blocking out negative emotions also causes their positive emotions to become dulled or nonexistent as well. Vampires are capable of turning their humanity back on and bringing back their emotions, but it is difficult as a result of the fact that they will be bombarded with all of their repressed emotions in addition to the guilt of anything they did without their humanity (such as killing or torturing innocent people or loved ones) with enhanced intensity.
Mind Compulsion: European Vampires have the ability to influence and control thoughts, emotions, and behavior and can alter or erase memories by eye contact. They are not able to compel other vampires or any other kind of creature.
Animal Blood: Animal blood, while somewhat satisfying a European Vampire's hunger and sustaining their undead life, will make the vampire considerably weaker than they would be if they had drank human blood, causing their physical abilities to be inferior to a human-blood-consuming vampire, making them heal much more slowly, and making their compulsion less effective.
Excess Blood: If a European Vampire drinks too much blood, they will display alcohol intoxication-like qualities (such as euphoria, confusion, stupor, etc). However the amount of blood needed for this to happen becomes larger the older the vampire is.
Hunger: A European Vampire has a strong blood lust that they have to fight to control; most cannot.
Broken Neck: Breaking a vampire's neck will not kill them, but it will render them in a death like state for varying amounts of time, depending on the diet and age of the person in question.
Decapitation: Dismembering or manually removing the head of a European Vampire will result in instant and permanent death.
Desiccation: European Vampires who abstain from blood for extended amounts of time will eventually desiccate and mummify.
Heart Extraction: Removing the heart of a vampire will result in permanent death. Vampires have the strength to plunge their hands right through the flesh of humans, allowing them to punch their hand through the thorax of a person and pull out their heart. If it is a vampire who has been subjected to this, then they will desiccate upon their death, causing their bodies to become a grey, dry husk with their vampiric veins exposed all over their body.
Sunlight: Sunlight and UV rays burn vampires on contact, and prolonged exposure will cause them to burst into flames and die. However, this weakness can be mitigated by the use of a piece of jewelry enchanted with a specific protection spell by a witch for a particular vampire, though it requires the vampire to wear the jewelry at all times.
Vampire Bloodline: If the alpha or one of the vampires the alpha himself turned dies, then any vampire they turned and the generations after will die as well.
Wood: Wounding a European Vampire with a wooden weapon such as wooden bullets will incapacitate them, and it will take longer for them to heal their injuries than if the wounds were caused by any other substance. Stabbing a vampire through the heart with a wooden stake will result in instantaneous and permanent death. It's possible for a vampire to build up a resistance to the effects of wood, but it's not possible for them to be fully immune.
Silver: Any contact with silver will burn the skin of the European Vampire it touches.

Personality: When Grayson was turned into a vampire, all of his emotions were enhanced. He’s a monster, and he’s very much aware of it. Of course, that’s not all there is to the man. It’s hard to really get a good read of Grayson, as he’s pretty slow to reveal his emotions and opinions. He’s always been a quiet guy, and stays in the shadows for the most part. He’s not the best at expressing himself either and when he does… It usually doesn’t end pretty. The vampire is pretty intense and when he’s angry, hurt, or even aroused it all tends to blur into one feeling - hunger. So when he’s down and emotional, it turns into anger and he becomes very tempermental. Any small thing can set him off and when it does, he usually does something extreme. A lot of times it results in someone being hurt or worse. He acts on emotions quickly, without much thought or reasoning. However, after the fact he usually realizes what he’s done and he regrets it and feels remorse… Though more times than not, this has resulted in him turning off his humanity.
He’s a perfect hunter, being incredibly manipulative and patient when it’s time to lure in a victim. He knows what he wants, how to get it, and how to strike at the right moment. And when he does want something, it becomes so powerful that it becomes more of a need for the vampire. Grayson has an intense need to act out on his needs as well. He’s very smart, and strategic. You kind of have to in order to survive as a creature now days.
Grayson enjoys trouble and drama to the point where he likes to cause it sometimes. He easily becomes bored with peaceful environments for too long. He’s a bit of a daredevil, liking the thrill of doing stupid shit; he’s pretty open to a lot of things. You can’t really intimidate him either, there’s not that much that scares him but he’s not brave to the point of stupidity. He likes both men and women alike, both sexually and as a meal. He has a soft spot for both mothers who are raising their children, and also children themselves. If he becomes romantically involved with someone, he tends to be very controlling and jealous. Though he can be a bit controlling of people in general at times. When he’s in your corner though, it’s for life. Grayson is an incredibly loyal person and he won’t turn on you once he cares about you.
He’s a very patient person and is very observant. Due to him not talking as much, he’s able to pick up on details a lot more than normal. When he talks with people, he picks up on their actions and mannerisms. Grayson is able to really read people, he’s good at noticing when people are lying and well, when he does it’s not good. Because he despises people lying to him. He’s a very confident man and comes across as mysterious and sometimes seductive.
On a deeper level, Grayson is a very generous man. He is kind, and he does care… But he doesn’t show it. He doesn’t allow people to care or nurture him, mostly out of thoughts that it may not be sincere, long lasting, or simply not enough. He does tend to take things personally as well, though this can possibly result in him lashing out; most of the time he just keeps it to himself. You can’t really get him to do anything, he is his own person and has his own mind. So don’t try to talk him into doing something or change who he is, because he can’t do it. If he tries, he’ll probably drive himself insane.
Parents: James and Ruth Monroe Siblings: Edward, Timothy, Mark (Brothers) Other Family: The Monroes Important Others:Kieran Ward (Progeny), Magnus Garrison (Maker) History:
Grayson was born into the Monroe family on a cool autumn morning at 7:23 AM in London, England. He was the youngest of four boys, so growing up he learned how to fend for himself since his brothers liked to rough him up. However, they always had his back. He had a fairly normal life, but his mother left the family while he was still very young. She went to be with another man after his father caught her in an affair. Ever since then he gained a longing for a mother, and he respected those who stayed with their children and despised those who didn’t.
Grayson dropped out of school at 16, and did work at a junkyard and mechanic work for his father’s business. He continued to work for his family and moved with them when they all decided to go to the United States. Depression hit Grayson hard when he was 21 and he began to just shut down. He wished he would’ve done more with his life and he was so lonely. His psychic abilities were getting out of control and he could feel everyone’s emotions no matter what he did. He took off and went into the mountains of Colorado. He lived in a small secluded cabin, having to stay as far as possible from civilization. So he wouldn’t feel anything besides his own feelings. That’s when he met Magnus, a man who came out of nowhere. Well, that was only true in one way because Magnus was not an ordinary man. He was a vampire. Magnus took a liking to the mountains, and hiked often. He even climbed Mount Everest. Grayson could feel how hungry the man was, and offered him food but when he picked up on his ill intentions, he tried to defend himself. The vampire attacked, showing his true form to the man. He made quick work of his weapons and pinned him to the ground. Instead of ending his life and feeding, however… Magnus took interest. How was he able to know his intentions? How he felt? And Grayson told him, he was born that way. He was from a family that wasn’t known to be normal. Magnus asked how it worked, and Grayson told him he couldn’t control it. That he felt everything. The two talked for a long time, Grayson just trying to buy himself more time but then he was offered something from the man that took him by surprise. He could take away the pain and suffering, make it where he wouldn’t have to feel. He could make him a vampire. This things were only ever talked about as horror stories, creatures of the night… Vampires. They weren’t supposed to be real, but they were and the temptation was too strong for Grayson to deny. So he did it. He became a vampire.
He traveled with Magnus, and when his abilities got out of control his maker showed him how to turn it all off… And he did. For a while. But then he was forced to feel again, his empathy forcing the switch back on. This both fascinated and concerned Magnus. He took his progeny to a witch who made Grayson a daylight ring and also enchanted it so that he could be in control of his empathy. The only catch was that it needed to be periodically enchanted to strengthen and contain its power. Once that was taken care of, he just continued on living alongside his maker. Magnus lost it over time, disconnecting and becoming a monster. He killed for sport and survival. It was when Magnus killed a woman Grayson had developed feelings for that everything changed in the early 90s. He had to be stopped. Grayson staked his maker in his heart when he least expected it. He was going in for a hug, not knowing his progeny held a wooden stake.
After Magnus’ death, Grayson went on living on his own. In 1995 he met a man named Kieran, who was a drunk and had nothing going for him. Grayson lured him into a dark alley, and fed on the man. In an impulsive decision, he fed the man his blood and snapped his neck. He had became lonely without his maker and didn’t want to be alone anymore. When he awoken, he was in transition. He explained what he did to him, and gave him the choice to either really live, or let himself die. Kieran chose to live, he fed and became a vampire. Ever since the two have become very close friends, fuck buddies, and share their meals and lovers.
Dean watched as the young blonde suddenly stood up and held out her hand. She was leaving? Dean couldn't help but feel a bit of disappointment. Little did he know the blonde thought Dean was trying to get rid of her even though that was not his intentions. He also stood and took her hand shaking it lightly but firmly, the electrical shock he felt earlier not as strong as the first time. When she leaned over and kissed his cheek it took him a little off guard. Her warm yet moist lips sent a feeling much stronger then the electrical shocks he felt earlier every time they made slight contact. What was it about this girl?.... It was something very different, he felt an almost... pull to her like she was a magnet and he was just a fine piece of metal. Again, his mind blamed it on the fact that he was in Purgatory for a year and this was really the first time he had been with a girl alone in quite sometime.
Dean took her phone and put the number in, all the while realizing that she would probably never call. He knew better then anyone that you don't give the person your number you get theirs. He handed her the phone and their fingers brushed against each other. She put the phone back in her bag.
"Thank you again,"
As she looked at him, their eyes met once again, gazing into one another's for a split moment before a small sigh escaped her lips. Before Dean could ask what was wrong a knock and a small voice came from outside the door.
Dean immediately furrowed his eyebrows. What the hell was housekeeping coming around at this time? It wasn't right, and Dean knew it. He had been living in motels forever, it wasn't time for this. Not only that, but Dean had specifically asked to keep housekeeping away until after he was done with the room, just something he started doing just in case he planned on staying a while. Dean went to grab Bethany's arm as she turned to open the door but wasn't quick enough.
"Wait, don't- - "
Beth opened the door and there stood a rather small middle aged woman with with black hair pulled into a pony-tail and a light blue cleaning uniform. Dean's eyebrows stayed furrowed as he looked at the woman but her words sent a shier down his spine and blood pumping his heart even faster.
The woman's eyes turned coal black and her cold, devilish half-smile sent another shiver down Dean's spine when suddenly Beth was sent flying into the wall. The demon sped in, the door slamming behind her. It was if she didn't notice Dean, that she didn't even care that he was standing there as her glare stayed hooked on Bethany who was now being pinned to the wall with telekinesis. As she was being held there a coat hook stabbed through the poor girl's left shoulder.
Dean's index finger on his right hand twitched as he stood there for a second. Before long the Winchester was moving and pulling out a canteen of holy water from under his pillow. Thankfully back when he got the credit cards Dean also got the basics, salt, holy water, borax, the works. He quickly spun around a toss a bit at the demon, making her grab at her face and scream as she steamed. Thanks to the sudden pain, the demon's hold on Bethany was gone and she fell to the floor. Dean quickly sprinkled more on the demon and moved in front of the door.
The woman stood there, her hands covering her face as she was bent over and looking down. She slowly lifted her head and pulled her hands away. Her eyes going wide and the pitch black being even more visible.
The demon shrieked and as she went to quickly leave the body Dean kicked with full force and she was pushed back, falling on a rug set up at the foot of the bed. She looked up quickly at the ceiling seeing nothing and frowned, trying to leave again but when she couldn't her eyes shot to Dean. Dean walked over slowly and smirked, lifting up the corner of the rug revealing a devils trap. He spoke in a low and cocky tone.
"Got you, bitch."
The demon squinted her eyes and tilted her head as Dean got up and rushed over to Beth.
"You..... I heard you were gone, everyone did. How are you here?"
Dean ignored the demon and squatted to Bethany's side, his eyes full of concern. He looked at her and upon seeing her injury he quickly wrapped his arm around her and helped her up.
"Don't worry... You'll be okay... I'll fix you up."
Dean walked her over to the bed and sat her down, ways away from the demon. After looking at her wound again, he looked into her eyes.
"Hang in there..."
Dean turned around and walked up to the demon, standing right outside of the devil's trap.
"What the hell are you doing here?" He nodded back at Beth. "What do you want from her?"
"Not going to make me talk, Winchester." The demon shook her head and smirked.
"Yeah?" Dean raised his eyebrows as he splashed more water in her face causing her to hiss. "Sure about that?"
The demon decided not to respond and Dean's anger and disgust took over.
"Fine. " Dean looked down at her, his glare latched onto her and not going anywhere. "Exorcizamus te, omnis immundus spiritus, omnis satanica potestas, omnis incursio infernalis adversarii, omnis legio, omnis congregatio et secta diabolica."
They'll love to know you are back!" The demon growled at Dean, causing him to pause a moment. "Yeah, well tell them I sent you." Dean paused again with a slight smirk and then he finished the exorcism. "Ergo, draco maledicte. Excclesiam tuam securi tibi facias libertate servire, te rogamus, audi nos."
A cloud of black smoke came spewing violently from the woman's mouth and when down through the floor. Dean took a breath and quickly turned around to see Beth. He swallowed and walked quickly back over to Beth, sitting on the bed next to her.
"I..... should patch you up now."
The body of the woman laid there, not moving as she was gone. Dean reached over to the nightstand, bending over Beth slightly and pulling open the drawer revealing some medical equipment.
