Ezra is the first half-human, half Vampire hybrid also known as a dhampir. Dhampirs have the same abilities as Vampires only weaker due to their human side but unlike Vampires, they are a lot more skilled in the art of fighting. Ezra does not need to wear a daylight ring to walk into the sun and does not have to solely rely on blood to live giving him the advantage to blend in with the humans better than a Vampire.
Ezra is a loyal and fierce creature. He will kill under a single command with no questions asked. He proudly gives his life to the Queen Vampiress and anyone he is friends with. In the time where he is not working, he enjoys the quiet time of camping in the woods, reading books, and even coffee shops.
Ezra is a 6'4, muscular weapon who has spent years training and perfecting with every weapon there is. He is one of the best fighters and has pledged his life to serve the Queen and defend her when needed.
Ezra was born to Iliza and Alexios grey on December 15, 1757, in Megara, Greece. His mother Iliza was a vampire while his father Alexios was only a human and at the time their love was forbidden. It wasn't uncommon for a vampire to have intercourse with a human but to marry and have children with them was a taboo in the vampiric realm so to make sure that Iliza and Alexios love child was kept secret, Iliza gave birth to Ezra in their home while Alexios brother, Samuel, helped deliver Ezra.
Iliza had no idea what to expect when delivering a half-human, half-vampire child but when she saw Ezra sucking his blood-covered fingers the moment he came out, she knew he was going to be more like her and less like a human which relieved Iliza. It would mean Ezra would be safe. Ezra grew much quicker than Iliza or Alexios had thought, given how Ezra was considered the first of his kind Iliza and her Husband were clueless on how to make sure Ezra got everything he needed in order to survive, which lead to continuous arguments between his parents. Ezra was pulled back and forth learning how to blend in with the vampires and how to blend in with the humans, what to eat, what to say, what to even wear. It made Ezra confused and in the end hating what he was.
"Mater, I don't understand, why do I have to hide who I am when you and pater can do as you wish?" Ezra asked with anger and confusion in his voice when he was only of age Nine.
"Ezra my love," she began softly, caressing the young boy's cheek, "You are the first of your kind. If we expose you to the world too early you will die, and Mater and Pater will too. I need you to keep pretended just a little longer my dear." As his mother lifted her hand off of Ezra's face, Ezra could hear chanting coming from outside.
"Kill the demon and it's spawn!" "Abomination!!" On and on the chants grew louder and it didn't take Ezra long to realize they were heading straight for his home.
"Mater.." he cried clinging on the hem of his mothers' skirt as she tried to push him back.
"Stay back Ezra." She told him in a warning matter just as soon as the banging began on his door. His Father Alexios ran towards his wife and child shortly after the commotion began trying to get in front of his Vampire Wife but Iliza was not having it. Even though Alexios was the male and had a duty to protect his family, Iliza was far stronger than any human that lied beyond her door.
But once the door was broken down, Ezra remembered hearing his Mother and Father's battle cries before he was hit upside the head and knocked unconscious. Ezra woke up later in the day in a field he recognized but was unsure how he got there. Carefully sitting up, he immediately felt a pain that shot through his skull causing him to cry out.
"Mater! Pater!" But neither his Mother nor Father came to his aid, instead, it was a woman he remembered seeing thanks to his mother. A woman with long Chesnut hair, eyes that resembled amber in the sun, pale pink lips, and a beauty that reminded him of his mother. Ezra knew exactly who this woman was.
"𝐻𝑒𝓁𝓁𝑜 𝐸𝓏𝓇𝒶" The Queen Vampiress spoke with the friendliest smile, one that didn't look false. Still, the young child kept his distance away from her, due to the fear that coursed his body. Rose's smile never faltered but her amber orbs showed her sympathy and understanding. "𝐼 𝒶𝓂 𝓃𝑜𝓉 𝒽𝑒𝓇𝑒 𝓉𝑜 𝒽𝒶𝓇𝓂 𝓎𝑜𝓊 𝓎𝑜𝓊𝓃𝑔 𝑜𝓃𝑒, 𝐼 𝒶𝓂 𝒽𝑒𝓇𝑒 𝓉𝑜 𝒽𝑒𝓁𝓅 𝓎𝑜𝓊." She told him calmly as she gently reached out for him to take.
As Ezra looked between her golden eyes and her outpaced hand he honestly believed her, be it because it was the Queen he was talking to and she genuinely wanted to help him, or it was the power that protruded from her that convinced the child that if she actually wanted to harm him, she would have by now. With the hope of the former in his mind, Ezra took a deep breath and reached out to take her hand.
As the years went by Ezra grew a relationship with the Queen Vampiress, nothing that was romantic but more of a mother figure, one that Ezra looked to for guidance and once he reached the age of sixteen, he began his training to be in Rose's army. On the first day of his training, Ezra surpassed even the most skilled warrior. It didn't matter what weapon he picked up he wielded the object as if he had been doing so for eons. Still, Ezra trained and gotten stronger with each day that passed be it strategy, offense, or even defense, Ezra impressed every bystander that watched: Even the Queen.
"Hearing her admit that she will always come back to him as well made his chest feel light as if a weight had been lifted. His rich, deep set of brown orbs followed her movements as she looked down, slightly worried that his absence was causing her…"
