AGE of Fangs - Erzsébet Báthory (Updated)

I'm going to be honest, I'm more than a bit obsessed with Elizabeth Bathory. Maybe it's my love for bad girls, maybe it's because I'm a bit twisted in the head, but there's something about the legends that appeals to me. I even joke that she was a lover in my past life. For this reason I chose her to be the first vampire I statted up using my new AGE vampire template. For more information on Bathory you should check out Tim Brannan's blog posts on her.

I present to you the Bloody Countess, in all her unholy glory. 

(I realized that my original write-up didn't take into account the vampiric weakness to the sun so I made some changes. - JI)

Favored StuntsPierce Armor (only costs 1 SP), "That Makes Me Wonder" (only costs 2 points), Thirst (see below)

Backstab: As level 1 Rogue Ability

My favorite action figure...
Blood is Life: Erzsébet can bite an unconscious or recently slain enemy and choose to regain 2d6 Health by drinking blood. If used on an unconscious foe, the bite counts as a coup de grace. Erzsébet can choose to only regain 1d6 Health. If she does this the attack isn't considered a coup de grace. If she chooses to feed on the victim again before the victim regains Health then they only regain 1d6 Health and the attack is considered a coup de grace.

Bluff: As level 3 Rogue ability

Dark Vision: Erzsébet can see in the dark as if it were daylight.

Dirty Fighting: As level 7 Rogue ability

Final Rest: No one is sure how to permanently destroy Erzsébet. She has been "killed" many times but she always seems to find a way to return.

Lethality: As level 9 Rogue ability

Mist Form: As a major action Erzsébet  can turn into a cloud of mist. She ignores the effects of terrain and can be harmed by magical attacks. Other attacks simply pass harmlessly through her. She can return to their normal form as a minor action.

Rogue's Armor: As
level 1 Rogue ability

That Makes Me Wonder: As level 6 Rogue ability

Sunlight Weakness: For every round of direct sunlight Erzsébet is exposed to she takes 1d6 points of penetrating damage.

Thirst: If Erzsébet hits with its bite attack she can perform a special stunt costing 3 SP. She regains Health equal to the targets Constitution + 1.

Unholy Flesh: The unholy energies infusing Erzsébet's flesh grant her an Armor Rating of 5. 

Wall Crawling: Erzsébet  can walk up walls and even on ceilings.

Talents: Assassin (Master), Contacts (Novice), Dual Weapon Style (Master), Thievery (Novice)

Bows, Brawling, Light Blades, Staves
