Job: News paper Reporter
About: Working as a reporter for what most consider to be a trashy tabloid, Ben is a nosey but mostly well meaning vampire. He uses his position as a scout for the local Vampire community to pursue a career in writing which is something he always enjoyed doing. As a young man he lived overseas and moved over after he became a vampire. He came with certain members of the vampire community to set up a base of operations in North America and to keep order amongst the dwindling vampire community. Ben has been working and living in a small office building for about ten years with his young assistant Nai. Things went pretty smoothly until news that Ian Easton, a vicious vampire criminal, had appeared in the city.
Name: Naidashi “Nai” Yoshimoto

Job: Photographer, Journalism Student
About: A happy go lucky young man who lives on Ben’s couch. He just appeared in this world one day when he was a child and couldn’t figure out how to get home. Very little can make him angry, unless you insult Ben whom he looks up to as a Boss an ‘older brother’ of sorts, however he gets flustered and panicky when you criticize him. Can be passive aggressive when irritated but rarely confronts things head on. He has large wings that he can hide using shapeshifting magic. He looks and sounds Japanese, but he is a demon so all that is purely coincidental.

Star liked to research and carefully learn about problems while Linda often jumps to conclusions. Both of them are stubborn and hard to convince they’re not on the right path. Neither of them believe in the things in The Eris City report. Those things are just plain silly.
