[LFA] Aaron, the half dragon form

Just like the title says, this is Aaron but in his half dragon form. The body of the dragon is based on those Chinese dragon but with five limbs, four front arms and two legs. He is very tall (9'20) and his half dragon body is very long however if you want, you could make a cute version of him or turning him into his fully dragon form!

This ref sheet is drawn by me and sorry if it looks rushed!

[LFA] Calixte, the charming Malkavian peacemaker.

Proprietor of the Le Pétale Écarlate, a club in New Orleans, Calixte is a mysterious figure. Using the rarity of her official appearances, as well as couching herself in vodou mysticism, she keeps people guessing. Is she a voodoo witch? A sea hag? Some sort of devilish menace? Underneath all of the rumours, Calixte is an old and powerful vampire of the eighth generation. Embraced in 1764 by the owner of the plantation she lived on, he was somehow surprised when she turned on him a year later, even when he himself admitted that he chose her for ambition and cruelty. She managed to get the drop on both him and his own sire, one Gouverneur Jean-Jacques Blaise d'Abbadie, performing the Diablerie; in which a vampire consumes another vampire, blood, soul, and all to rise in Generation and, therefore, power.

The years have softened her, though she would be loath to admit it. All told she is happy to run her club, in actuality a masquerade Elysium (as Kine, or humans, frequent the establishment) as well as her own Haven, and do her best to duck the madness that is kindred politicking and manoeuvring. The Jyhad is a dangerous bore in her mind, where vampires dance at the whims of their betters. She would rather gather quiet power and use it to forge alliances between the Kindred of the city and other supernatural beings, as New Orleans has a history for being a place of cooperation between those what go bump in the night.

As with all Children of Malkav, Calixte is afflicted with a derangement. Her treatment at the hands of slavers left deep scars on her mind, and sometimes she still sees their visages flash onto the faces of kine authority figures like the police, an institution that itself grew out of the old “slave patrol.” The Camarilla is usually willing to look the other way, as this allows them to shore the waning police numbers with their own informants, as well as ensure that there is a constant influx of “pigs blood” into the mouths of the New Orleans kindred.
