|~ Belle Morte|
Belle Morte, also known as Beautiful Death, is a Vampire Council member and apparently personally responsible for the rise of "sexy vampires" in the Anitaverse. She is a beautiful, pale skinned, dark haired, with eyes the color of dark honey and is known to be at least 2,000 years old.
All members of Belle-Morte's bloodline tend to be selected for their beauty, and some of the vampires in her line are visited by the ardeur, becoming incubi or succubi that need to feed off of lust as well as blood, but able to also project the ardeur to control others. In some cases, Belle Morte has demonstrated the power to actually "resculpt" the features of vampires in her bloodline, making them still more beautiful than when they were chosen. Jean-Claude, Sabin, and Asher are all of Belle Morte's bloodline.
