His features a gaunt, and slightly sickly with very pale skin and deep purple lines under his eyes. His face is very handsome if dirty, with sharp well pronounced features. His eyes are dark green, and very intense. A thin bit of stubble runs across his face giving a somewhat feral appearance. He sports a medium build, but somehow still seems to come off as a tiny bit to thin. His skin is also marked by the occasional light purplish blotch.

He dresses like a street urchin, and it is quite apparent that he is somebody who virtually lives in his clothes. He often dresses in tight dark blue jeans, and a brown plain belt. A Grey hooded sweatshirt covers his torso, and a heavy Grey greatcoat on top of that. His feat remain bare, and are often caked in dirt and mud. Then as if to offset all the dull neutral colors completely, atop his head sits a bright crimson beret.

History: " The life of a vampire is a hard one. From birth to death, it is but a never ending struggle. Hiding in darkness, feeding in the shadows. Each night is a deadly dance of predator and prey. The hunter, and the hunted. If you survive another night your reward is the brief day time slumber. A small escape from your short violent life. Assuming some nut job doesn't come knocking at around noon with a wooden steak and a hammer. Despite being classified as "being" a strong anti-vampire sentiment remains threw out most of the world. Both Among wizarding kind, and other intelligent non-humans. Vampire hunting, though illegal. Is still widely practiced in some corners of the world. Then there is the rather Draconian way the ministry deals with vampire "criminals". Attack a muggle out of hunger and your guaranteed to catch they next sunrise. Assuming your to sloppy to clean up your own mess. Attack a wizard and well....lets just say you better have all your affairs in order. And there's the sickness... But don't worry little bro, despite all that we still got each other. And I'm not going anywhere. Your thirteen now, and its time you learn how to survive. I'm sure Dad would be proud. If he was still alive.."


Those were the words his brother spoke to him on his thirteen birthday. And those are the words he had lived his life by. Of course his brother was lying. James knew someday, weather he wanted it to happen or not. He would loose his brother. The signs of the sickness, the strange disease that kills most vampires by the time they reach thirty. Had already begun to manifest. So when his brother was killed the following winter, by vampire hunters. He had already came to terms that his brother would die. And though it was sudden, and unexpected. Redcap simply swallowed it all down, and kept on moving. Redcap had no time to grieve, no time to mourn. He had to keep moving, keep surviving. Thats how his brother would have wanted it.

James now found himself alone in the same harsh world of which his brother had spoken. Though things had calmed down sense the height of hysteria following the dark lords defeat. He was still a vampire, and vampires were at the very best in post FWW America viewed with suspicion. James had been born toward the beginning of the First Wizarding War. Though he cant remember most of it, his brothers stories suggest things were just as hard then as they were now. But still nowhere near as bad as the trials following the dark lords fall. There were many rumors flying about that the vampires had officially joined with the Dark Lord. Though it was true that some had. Most vampires were more concerned with there daily lives threw most of the conflict. However, as vampires have often been seen by wizards as dark creatures. Many more innocents met there end than those guilty. These trials however were mostly kept hush hush, unlike those of major death eaters in England. It did however spawn something positive.

For the first time the vampire community united as one and voiced there opposition to these acts. But the human is often unconcerned with the troubles of the other races. And eventually the trials halted on there own, and the voices of the vampiric opposition silently died away back into the shadows. But this time they did not withdraw alone. Though still spread apart often by vast distances geographically the vampire community had begun to develop as its own social group. And were thus able to voice there opposition more often to what were sometimes seen as very anti non-human/wizard propositions.

It was in this new community that James found his true calling. Young and full of passion. He quickly became a noticeable voice among the American struggle for vampire, and "being" rights. Though they were mostly ignored, the idea that he was actually doing something seemed to give his life meaning above just trying to stay alive. And as long as at least somebody heard him speak, and changed there opinions he was happy. Though things were not always bright. During these years several attempts were made on his life. An there were times when he thought it was all over. But even threw this he pushed on, remembering the strength of his brother. And hoping that the future generations of his people might not have to live the way he had lived.

Then slowly things began to change... It started with the escape of Sirius Black from Azkaban. A known servant of the dark lord. A few disappearances here and there. And then came harry potter, the boy who supposedly defeated the dark lord as a infant. Who publicly claimed to have seen the Dark Lords return at the end of his fourth year. Rumors were everywhere nobody knew who was right, the world was split between potter and the ministry. All the while more people seemed to be vanishing. Then came the second mass break out from Azkaban, supposedly aided by Sirius black himself. And worse yet there was certain whispers throwout the Non human community's. That the buy potter might not be off his rocker. And that the dark lord had indeed returned. And that many planned to join him. These rumors sent shock waves threw the vampire community. Also, there was the blotches that had began to appear on his skin. The first signs of the sickness.. Until, finally everything climaxed when it was confirmed last year. The Dark Lord had returned.

For several weeks it seemed the world was in panic. People began to step up security, ministers, and department officials were rapidly replaced. It was like witnessing a small village prepare for a hurricane. It was all a good effort but in the end it meant little. On top of that, suspicion of non-humans was once again peaking. The last time the dark lord rose to power, he had all manner of "dark" creatures under him. From giants to werewolves. Something had to be done. Sooner or later someone would force there hand. Weather it was the vampires rushing off to join the dark lord, or there ministry's asking for the vampires to make a official stance. Something would happen.

It was quickly decided that they officially stand with there ministry's. Despite the strong dislike between both "being" and wizard. It was easy to see that things would indeed be much worse should the Dark Lord come to power. So it was also decided that a group of volunteers would head for England. To aid in the fight against the Dark Lord anyway they can, in hopes that there sacrifice will not only speed the victory over the Death Eaters. But also present his people in a more positive light in the days following the war. At least..that's all they could really hope for. And so it was that James, now known as the alias "Redcap". Traveled by boat to England in hopes of making a difference and saving a world that was never really his home.

Yep, he is from a small minority. Sorry if the history is a bit confusing I tried to cover the key aspects without getting to wordy.
