GREGOR SPN | Demon | 500+ | Stright | Played By: Dominic Cooper
soundtrack to this stagnant life MEANING LOST IN TRANSLATION
WHO? : Greg, Mr. G, The German, The Duke WHAT? : Crossroads Demon
this could be my great awakening BUT HOW WOULD I KNOW?
PICTURE PERFECT : Though by no means short, Gregor is by no means a giant either. A healthy 5'10'' descendant of his late sister with deep hazel eyes and a mop of chocolate brown hair was the closest thing to his old body that he could swipe and so far, it has served him well. With Gregors love of playing hellhounds, the vessel has taken a beating, but he does his best to keep in good condition by running and playing sports as to prevent it from become less than acceptable for the Duke to posses. If one were to walk into Gregors massive closest they would find no jeans, no off brand shirts, nothing but Italian tailored suits, top of the line workout gear, and loafers of various shades and styles that would cost more than most peoples homes. Brought up in a wealthy home in the 1500's never wore off, even after what seemed like centuries in the fires of hell before he became a cross roads demon, and now that he's back, there's no way that he'd wear anything less than what his noble blood deserves.
EYE COLOR : Hazel HEIGHT : 5'10'' WEIGHT/BODY TYPE : Slim, toned
it's all noise to me ARE THESE WORDS FALLING ON DEAF EARS?
MY SKILLS: Snake tongue ( can talk his way in or out of anything and everything ) Wine/cognac connoisseur Good with the Hellhounds Has the patience of a saint
WEAKNESSES: Proper German women Is non-confrontational Has some semblance of humanity left
LIKES: Old cognac Intelligent & elegant women Bear skin rugs Classic architecture Mahogany furniture Collecting historical artifacts Classic Literature (Chaucer) Tailored suits Fifties inspired fashion Having servants Making love Frank Sinatra Making deals Chess Satin sheets Pocket watches Leather shoes Philosophical discussions Playing with Hellhounds Depeche mode Dogs in general Wine Kesha
DISLIKES : Conflict People going back on their deals Cheap booze Rap music Cats Arguments Having to use his powers Disrespect Being told what to do Trouble makers Loud Noises Torture demons Lilith Uppity Angels Stereotypes about demons Being exercised
GOALS : To continue living in his plush existence Not to be killed by a hunter or Lucifer To fall in love
SO, WHAT ARE YOU LIKE? : In the time when Gregor grew up, there was a set hierarchy, levels and titles, and that's one of the things that defines the demon. Born and bred to believe that his blood made him worthy of respect and better than others proved to mold the healthy ego and sense of entitlement that one can't help but notice when conversing with him. However, though he "knows" he's better than the "commoners" he also has a certain love for them as well. In his day, to be a Lord, or Duke in his case, meant that you were responsible for the people you ruled over. His father always said to him "If we expect them to protect us in our time of need, we must first protect them." and he took it to heart. Does he believe himself to be perfect? Maybe. Is he a pompous ass? Sometimes. Is he a complete self serving douche bag? No.
Yes, Gregor is a demon, but part of his humanity remains, if only that part of him that desire to love. No matter what it's for, selling your soul gets you a one way ticket to hell, but to him, his love of Amelia was worth all that and more and it is this ability of undying love that kept with him through the fires of perdition, even if she rejected him. Though he knows it is unlikely that he will ever be able to feel love again (him being a demon and all), there is a part of him that still searches for the one that won't betray him. Gregor will be the first to admit that he's a die hard romantic and usually is the cross road demon that responds to love related deals, as that's his specialty. He treats women like goddesses not only because that's how he was raised but also because that's what he truly believes them to be.
Preferring smooth, civilized conduct, Gregor avoids conflict however and whenever he can. Be it underhanded negotiations or sugarcoated threats, there is little the demon won't do to avoid a confrontation. This, however, does not mean he will not fight when he must, it simply mean he will only do so when every other option to get his way is completely exhausted. He has better things to do with his life than kill people, he'd much rather have all business transactions end with a glass of cognac and a handshake than with hellhounds and bloodshed.
realize that they no longer care ABOUT THE WRONG OR RIGHT
ANY FAMILY? : William IV, Father, Duke of Jülich-Berg, Dead Elisabeth, Mother, Countess of Nassau-Saarbrücken, Dead Maria, Older Sister, Duchess of Julich-Berg, Dead John III, brother in-law, Duke of Cleves, Dead Anna, Niece, Duchess of Julich-Cleves-Berg, Dead Ulrich, Nefew-in-law, Duke of Julich-Cleves-Berg, Dead Wilhelm, Grand Nefew, Duke of Jülich-Cleves-Berg, Dead Gregor VII, Grand nefew, Duke of Jülich-Cleves-Berg, Current vessel (Alive?).
WHAT'S HAPPENED TO YOU SO FAR?: October 25, 1470 saw the birth of William IV's first and only son, Gregor VII Duke of Jülich-Berg. A relief to his father who had long feared not siring a male heir, Gregor was treated like a prince and educated as such, though his blood line was a little less deserving of such esteem. While studying at Ruprecht Karl University of Heidelberg,Gregor made acquaintanceship of young and astoundingly beautiful girl named Amelia Schneider. As smart as she was gorgeous, Gregor fell head over heels for her. The daughter of a tailor, Amelia was well of,but not nearly of pure enough stock to marry a Duke of his status, but that didn't stop the young lovers. for four long, joyous years, Gregor wooed the raven haired damsel, come to her every beck and call like a lost puppy, she had by the heart and he was perfectly okay with this. That is until his father found out about their secret love affair.
When Gregor returned from his studied in Heidelberg, he brought Amelia with him to announce his intentions of wedding her. The young, foolhardy Duke knew that his parents wouldn't like it, but was sure that once they understood his love for her, that they would accept Amelia with open arms, oh, how wrong he was. Unbeknownst to him, his father had already arranged a marriage to a wealthy countess of the eastern provinces and would hear nothing of this lowly tailors daughter. Gregor had responsibility to fulfill, a family to take care of and it was the bloodline that always came first. "Love" had no place in the life of a Duke, a Duke's place was to wed for the betterment of the duchy and to take care of those under him, and nothing else. When Gregor objected, William had him forcibly confined to his rooms until such a time as his wedding was finalized.
After two long months of this, Gregor had learned quite a bit from reading the old tomes that lingered, nigh untouched, in the extensive library in the castle. Taking a few key ingredients and what little he needed to get where he was going, Gregor sneaked out of his tower and made his way to the closest crossroads he could find. Though a catholic, his love of Amelia was all that mattered to him, his so called soul meant nothing without her and with this thought, he called upon a crossroads demon in the name of love. Asking only for the ability to marry his one true love and for the means to support a family, the duke willingly gave way his soul, his title, and his family to marry the tailors daughter. When he arrived at his loves house and told her the news, she rejected him, for without those things, he meant nothing to her. She took his heart and for all that she had, destroyed it. and there he was left, alone, soulless, and still so desperately in love that he couldn't even bring himself to take vengeance upon his raven haired beauty. Resigning himself to his future-less fate, Gregor once again called upon the crossroads demon, but not to negotiate terms of the deal. Upon his knees, he calmly requested that his contract come to a close ten years early. The demon, pitying the young man, agreed and the Duke was taken to hell to the ravenous howls of hellhounds.
After a good long tour in Hell, Gregor became a crossroads demon himself. Possessing his grand nephew, who was almost the spitting image of himself, He once again roamed the earth. Specializing in deals for love, Gregor now lives in a Old Germany inspired mansion in rural New York with his rather large array of both Hellhounds and mortal dogs.
the downwards spiral begins tonight THIS COULD BE MY GREAT AWAKENING
THE IMPACT :
The familiar, though still very much appreciated, taste of Remy Martin Louis XIII Cognac dispersed through his esophagus sending a cascade of warmth through his vessels insides. The brand he chose tonight possessed a symphony of flavors that truly spoke to the talent involved in its distillation. Though not overly fond of the French, he had to attest to one of their frightening few capacities was to make fine liquors, this particular cognac included. A mischievous grin tugged at the edges of his well proportioned lips as he felt the power of a summons pull at his being...Looks like we've got another one for the pit... He thought to himself as he gently place his crystal tulip glass back down in the antique mahogany bar and answered the call.
The scent of ancient pines and fresh rain filled his nostrils as his Gothic inspired library instantaneously turned into a mangled dirt road in what he assumed to be either Georgia, Louisiana, or Alabama. Tall, untamed grass swayed in the humid breeze as a thousand stars blazed like lanterns in the deep ebony sky. By the look of it, there wasn't a city within a hundred miles of this place and Gregor appreciated the quiet of such rural places. Drawing his attentions back to the task at hand, the well dressed German spotted his would-be contract and walked over to her with little noise to announce his arrival. The Italian leather loafers that adorned his manicured feet pressed deep into the soft mud with every step he took until finally his was a mere three feet from the exquisite example of fine American breeding."Guten abend, fraulein, you called?" the demon inquired in a gentle voice.
The girl before him could be no older than twenty, a beautiful white cotton dress modestly giving hint to her veracious curves and providing a well liked contrast to her extensive mane of auburn curls. The shirt fanned out as the girl spun around to see who had spoken as all color drained form her face. "You're my crossraods demon, I'm guessing?" she replied with more courage than he had expected. Though visablly frightened, the stood tall, ready to seal her fate for whatever reason she saw fit. "Indeed I am, my dear fraulein." He said as he extended his hand to bring hers gently to his lips. "You may call me Gregor. Now, what pray tell brings you to call upon me?" His thick German accent perforated every word he spoke as the youth let her hand dropped lifelessly to her side. "It's my fiance, he's sick and it don't look like he's gonna make it. Can you fix him?" Her confidence was waning but she kept on task like a true champion. "I can indeed, but there will be a price."
Looking down for a moment the girl fiddled with the dainty golden cross that draped around her porcine neck. Interesting that angels had the power to cure all people and yet rarely ever answered a prayer. One would think it were the demons who were the true guardians these days. "I know, my soul." she finally said, gazing up at him with tears welling in her crystal blue eyes. "That's correct, fraulein. I can give you ten long years with your love until I must take you with me." He replied putting a comforting hand on her shoulder. "And he'll be as good as new, right? The cancer won't ever come back?"She stuttered, attempting to remain strong. "He'll remain healthy until the end of his days, I swear it." Closing her eyes, she nodded, lips trembling."To seal the contract, dear fraulein, we must kiss and you shan't see me again till the contracts end." The girl nodded once more, not daring to raise her gaze higher than her shoes. Using his fingertips to gently raise her head, Gregor kissed her lips ever so softly and vanished back to his beloved abode, leaving the beautiful southern girl alone at the cross roads wondering if the deal really did take place.
