The Children

Lander: Born in 490 b.c.e, he is not only a child of Sparta but a child so loved by the war gods the Greeks compared him to a child of the God of War himself. Lander was considered a perfect Spartan specimen and managed to live to the age 31. During his time as a soldier he rose through the ranks and commanded his own units. This has made him not only an expert in singular warfare but in military war fare as well. Lander is an imposing and muscular 6’3. His skin is dark from the sun and his eyes and hair are dark brown. He is noted to smell like the olives and the seas of his home. He owns the largest security firm in the world, Black Hound. They specialize in everything to elite bodyguard training to hired militia. Similar to his mother, he insists on training all his elites in both modern warfare and ancient ones. Lander himself is a master of the spear and shield of his original time. He is considered the physically strongest and most adept fighter of the family. Lander’s loyalty and devotion to his family somehow seems to even out match the extreme fanaticism many of his other family members have. However, he has an extremely soft side for his sister and mate Mehtep. He also has the most children as he is the most naturally inclined to family values.

Mehtep: Only born a few years after her brother and mate, Lander, Mehtep was turned in 493 b.c.e. Mehtep was originally a slave women of a wealthy Persian military family. However, by showing her usefulness and natural martial skills she not only earned her freedom but became one of the few female advisors and fighters within the Persian militias. She had accompanied her former owners to a battle against Sparta when she managed to take out three of Lander’s men who had come to ambush the back line. It was love at first sight for Lander who forced her out of the battle field towards his observing mother. An impressed Asnat willingly turned Mehtep so her son would not be her maker and her mate. She relies on her wits in most tactical situations but should not be left underestimated when it comes to a dagger in her hand. She is known to be deadly with any form of short sword and knife. Mehtep is 5’11 and tan. She has large brown eyes and thick brown hair. She is noted to smell like lime, saffron and roses. A symbol of the station in life she had managed to climb up to before her death at 29. Currently, she teaches Farsi at Universities. Similar to Lander she is extremely fanatical with her loyalty towards her mother and their family. Mehtep is not naturally a motherly figure and did not originally want children. However, she does have one child.

Hervör: Turned at the age of 33 in 1000 A.D. Iceland, she is the only child who first asked Asnat to be turned. Hervör was from a raider family and had grown up raiding her way to Iceland. Her parents died on a voyage to Greenland. The community in Iceland at the time did not have such secrets between species and many were aware of those they were with. Asnat was a recent foreign funder for their exploration into Greenland and what lay beyond. Hervör finding her curious spent much time with her getting to know her and everything she hadn’t known about the world. Before deciding to set sail for Greenland she asked Asnat to turn her. Asnat finding the girl brave and having spent time with her agreed. She is 6’1 making her tall for a women. However, despite that she has many feminine features. According to her siblings, she smells like the pacific ocean. Hervör is perhaps the most talented sailor and explorer of her siblings. Her use with an axe and round shield makes her incredibly difficult to kill. Growing up in the raiding and naval exploration era of the Norsemen she enjoyed participating in many of the battles on the North American continent. Hervör currently owns various businesses in Canada, Greenland, Iceland and the Netherlands. Many of them focus on naval industries and energy industries. She is a very single-minded and hardworking person and such is not the warmest one in the family. However, her choice in a soft and warm mate shows her desire to be around those unlike her. She has no children herself and out of her mother’s children she is perhaps the only one who does not have a fanatical level of loyalty. Fun fact she arrived in the Americas before her mother ever did.

Helka: Only 17 at the time, Helka was turned during the Mongols raid into China in 1226. Her older sister and her were both captured by the Xin dynasty when they were young.

Caught off guard the young girl was saved by Asnat, Lander and Mehtep- who were inspecting the safety and security of trade channels in the Asian continent.

However, after nearly being killed for trying to save other slaves he was sentenced to be tortured to death by his owners. At the time, Asnat and her family were spreading their influence and control over the America’s and so she was pretending to be a rich heiress from Europe. After hearing the story of his crimes and witnessing their verdict Asnat decided the Cotton Family needed to be eradicated sooner than later.
