Astrological sign: Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, and that shouldn’t be taken lightly — nor should Scorpios! Those born under this sign are dead serious in their mission to learn about others. There’s no fluff or chatter for Scorpios, either; these folks will zero in on the essential questions, gleaning the secrets that lie within. Scorpios concern themselves with beginnings and endings, and are unafraid of either; they also travel in a world that is black and white and has little use for gray. The curiosity of Scorpios is immeasurable, which may be why they are such adept investigators. These folks love to probe and know how to get to the bottom of things. The fact that they have a keen sense of intuition certainly helps.

 

The Scorpion symbolizes Scorpio, and that is no accident. Much like the Scorpion would rather kill itself than be killed, those born under this sign are in ultimate control of their destiny. It is life on the Scorpion’s terms, too, since these folks promote their agenda (they are quite the executives) and see to it that things go forward. Others may find this overbearing (it can be) and even self-destructive, but that’s the beauty of the Scorpio: they have tremendous regenerative powers, much like the literal Scorpion can lose its tail and promptly grow a new one. Fearless Scorpios rarely lose; they just keep on going, since they are stubborn and determined to succeed (this Scorpio trait is in keeping with the Fixed Quality assigned to this sign). Scorpios work as hard as they do so they can someday sit back and feel satisfied with themselves. These folks are intense, passionate and filled with desire. They’re also complex and secretive, so don’t expect to get much out of them, lest they become suspicious and exit stage left. It’s best not to bet against Scorpios, either, since these folks are surprisingly resourceful.

 

Chinese zodiac: Occupying the 2nd position on the Chinese Zodiac, Oxen possess such character traits as dependability, strength and determination. Oxen are tolerant individuals who believe that the road to success involves hard work and scrupulous behavior; they don’t believe in taking shortcuts. They characterize those who don’t work hard as lazy individuals not worthy of respect.

 

Oxen are capable of trusting others and will listen to their opinions with an open mind. However, Oxen prefer making decisions that are based on their own research. Oxen favor strong, life-long alliances to casual acquaintances.

 

Home is where Oxen go to seek comfort, occasionally watching television or reading. They prefer the rural outdoors and spend the majority of their “home” time working in the garden or caring for the yard.

Cavaletti Family History:

Niccolo Cavaletti was the grandson of Edgar Cavaletti, a living vampire who was the first member of the house of judges to successfully have a case overthrown for lack of evidence, thus exposing the botched legal system of the sanctioned five who based their verdicts on their particular like or dislike of an accused party instead of facts.
Niccolo, who followed in his grandfather’s footsteps and took the place of one of the sanctioned five fathered two children, Natalia and Elijah. The twins were expected to be excellent judges, except, Elijah had no plans of following his father into a career he deemed boring and worthless. Just after his twenty-ninth birthday he started an uprising, murdering his parents and a slew of other vampires before he and his band of two hundred were finally brought to justice. His sister Natalia escaped the carnage and sought refuge in the house of Leviticus where she eventually became the first living vampire to switch houses. She fell in love with a male Leviticus by the name of Esmond, a man exiled from his family and unable to give his last name to his new bride. Thus the Cavaletti legacy was able to continue. The two went on to give birth to three children, two girls and a son they named for her late father, Niccolo.
Niccolo Cavaletti the second went on to marry a woman named Lucretia, the daughter of a very wealthy Leviticus executioner. He fathered seven boys; Paris, Joshua, Bartholomew, Arden, Lucio, Micah and finally Giovanni. Niccolo, who was set to retire from being one of the sanctioned three who ran the house of Leviticus watched his sons fight for the right to take his place, most of them killing each other until only Lucio, the eldest of the three, Micah, who never wanted his seat of power in the first place, and Giovanni, the youngest of his seven children remained. When he decided the youngest would be the best candidate to take his place and would thus become the youngest person in history to assume a sanctioned position, his son Lucio attacked him and cut his heart from his chest, turning him into one of the undead. In a fit of rage over the death of his father, Giovanni attacked his elder brother and commit him to the same fate. Micah and Giovanni, aside from their mother Lucretia, are the last remaining heirs of the Cavaletti blood line. Micah, an eccentric painter moved to Paris some time ago, leaving his well known glass company to his then seventeen year old brother and hasn’t been heard from since, leaving the now twenty eight year old to govern the family estate on his own.

New Character! Introducing…Sabine (Mallory Douglas)

"She's a Man-eater that one."
“She’s a Man-eater that one.”

Basic Statistics
Name: Mallory Douglas
Nickname: Mal
Meaning of name: Unfortunate Dark Stranger
Origin of name: Welsh
Age: 27
Gender: Female
Blood type: O-
Astrological sign: Leo – Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac. These folks are impossible to miss, since they love being center stage. Making an impression is Job One for Leos, and when you consider their personal magnetism, you see the job is quite easy. Leos are an ambitious lot, and their strength of purpose allows them to accomplish a great deal. The fact that these folks are also creative makes their endeavors fun for them and everyone else. It’s quite common to see a Leo on stage or in Hollywood, since these folks never shy away from the limelight. They are also supremely talented and have a flair for the dramatic. Warmth and enthusiasm seems to seep from every Leo pore, making these folks a pleasure to be around. They do love pleasure! It’s the Lion that symbolizes Leos, and the king (or queen) of the jungle is a most appropriate mascot, since they consider themselves the rulers of their universe (and the zodiac at that). Like Lions, Leos tend to be dignified and strong, and itÕs this sense of their power that allows them to get things done. A Leo on your team is a good thing, since Lions are eager to see their projects through to completion. Putting these folks at the helm is a good thing, too, since the Leo-born are natural leaders. They may ruffle a few feathers along the way, however, since they can also be overbearing and somewhat autocratic. This may be in keeping with the Fixed Quality assigned to this sign — Lions are indeed opinionated and set in their ways. That said, they are well organized, idealistic and have a knack for inspiring others.
Chinese zodiac: Ox – Occupying the 2nd position on the Chinese Zodiac, Oxen possess such character traits as dependability, strength and determination. Oxen are tolerant individuals who believe that the road to success involves hard work and scrupulous behavior; they don’t believe in taking shortcuts. They characterize those who don’t work hard as lazy individuals not worthy of respect. Oxen are capable of trusting others and will listen to their opinions with an open mind. However, Oxen prefer making decisions that are based on their own research. Oxen favor strong, life-long alliances to casual acquaintances. Home is where Oxen go to seek comfort, occasionally watching television or reading. They prefer the rural outdoors and spend the majority of their “home” time working in the garden or caring for the yard. Oxen are strong individuals who overall are healthy and live long, fulfilled lives. However, they tend to work too much, rarely allowing themselves enough time to relax. Oxen could benefit from incorporating more non-work-related activity into their lives. Oxen prefer work that is routine. They take a methodological approach to their tasks and excel in jobs that are specialized. Oxen possess a keen eye for detail and an admirable work ethic. They are more productive when allowed to work alone. Good career choices for oxen include: interior designer, painter, carpenter, quarry worker, archeologist, horticulturist, mechanic, engineer, draftsman, banker, broker, real estate agent and army officer.
