Characters from Ashes of Deceit: Katelina

Katelina Mauldin:

Hair: long blonde

Eye color: blue

Height: 5’ 6”

Katelina is looking forward to an after Christmas trip to the tropics – assuming she can keep Jorick focused. When they learn that Kale, a vampire, has been kidnapped by a human scientist, they have no choice but to rescue him. Will the “quick trip” really be quick, or will it spiral into an out of control bloodbath? 

Characters from Legacy of Ghosts: Micah



Hair: bald
Eyes: brown
Height: 5’ 11

A vampire who could have dropped right out of a seventies biker movie, Micah comes equipped with a strong dislike for Jorick and a bad attitude. But, he does share cigarettes, so maybe he’s not as bad as Katelina thinks….

(An older drawing, so i probably should have redone him. However, his face was spot on, so I didn’t want to mess with that.)

Characters from Legacy of Ghosts: Velnya



Hair: black

Eyes: violet

Who was the mysterious woman with the sad eyes?  Where is she now? Is she going to reappear suddenly? And, maybe more importantly, what was she – or is she –  to Jorick?

Characters from Legacy of Ghosts:Patrick

Patrick Mullins


Hair: pale blonde
Eye color: ice blue
Height: 6’
When Patrick’s brother, Michael, told him that he’d been turned into a vampire against his will, Patrick didn’t want involved. But, a brother is a brother, so Patrick relented and tried to help him escape his destiny, even going so far as allowing Claudius to mark him as a “human slave”. An unexpected meeting with Jorick led Michael and Patrick to play double agent and the pair helped Oren, Jorick and Kateesha kidnap Arowenia, Claudius’s mate. But when Claudius’s threats got too dangerous, Michael suddenly changed his mind and wanted to return her. In the ensuing argument, Patrick accidentally told Michael where Arowenia was being held, and Michael murdered him for his efforts.

Characters from Legacy of Ghosts: Loren

Loren Drake


Hair: curly, black

Eyes: Brown

Height: 5’ 11”

An obviously “newer” vampire, Loren looks like he might have been 17 when he was turned. But just exactly who is he, and how does he know Jorick? And why is he so anxious to join Oren’s war, even at the risk of his own life?

Characters from Legacy of Ghosts: Kateesha



Hair: black
Eye color: deep brown
Height: 5’9”
Kateesha is Jorick’s sister in blood; created by the same master, Malick, to be Jorick’s mate. She longs to fulfill this role, though Jorick blatantly rejected her after the battle with Claudius. Still, it seems Jorick isn’t her only goal. Rumors say that she is building a war coven to fight The Guild, and she’ll go to any length to instigate an attack. But if she’s fighting The Guild, and Oren’s fighting The Guild, will that make them allies or enemies?

Characters from Legacy of Ghosts: Torina



Hair: Red

Eye color: green

Height: 5’6”

Oren’s sister. One look at her slinky dresses, long nails and pouty lips and anyone can identify her as a man eater. But under her sexy façade hides an angry woman who will stop at nothing for revenge. The real instigator in the war against Claudius, now she’s turned her eyes to Kateesha. But will she be able to talk Oren into changing his plans?

Characters from Legacy of Ghosts: Oren



Hair: Golden tawny

Eye color: amber

Height: 5’ 10”

Jorick’s friend and Fledgling, Oren suffers the recent loss of his wife and children at the hands of the Executioners. His war with Claudius finally over, Oren turns his thoughts to revenge, and plans to fight The Guild, the vampire government, and get revenge for his murdered family. But, when Jorick refuses to join him, his chances of winning look slimmer and slimmer. Will he really leave Jorick in peace, or will he persist until his Master can’t refuse any longer?

Characters from Legacy of Ghosts: Katelina

Katelina Mauldin:


Hair: long blonde

Eye color: blue

Height: 5’ 6”

When her friend with benefits, Patrick, was murdered, Katelina was drawn into the secret world he’d left behind – a world of darkness, death and vampires!  After the events of Shades of Gray, Katelina just wants some rest and normalcy, but everyone in the “real world” would freak if they saw her all bandaged up! So, when Jorick invites her to stay with him and heal, she jumps at the chance.  But is that her real motivation, or just another lie she’s telling herself? How long can she straddle the fence between day and night before she has to finally choose?

Characters from Legacy of Ghosts: Jorick



Hair: Long black hair

Eye color: so dark they look black

Height: 6’1”

A dark, enigmatic vampire who’s set himself up as Katelina’s protector, though she isn’t sure why. He blames himself for Katelina’s involvement and her current, battered state, so when Oren invites him to join a new war, he declines, and instead takes her to his house by the sea to heal. But, as secretive as he is mysterious, Jorick isn’t one for straight answers. What is his real motivation? And what does he have hidden in the locked room at the end of the hall? Even more important, how long can he resist before he joins Oren and launches them both into another bloody battle?
