Hello! I'm Alexander Clark, it's a pleasure to meet you all.
I was born near London in 1833. I honestly don't remember much of my childhood, except that my parents were always inviting the Owens over to visit. My mum and dad died when I was 20. I believe that might have contributed to my recklessness.
When I was 22 I attempted to summon a demon, Stolas. Charles tried to stop me, but I refused to listen to his logic and instead convinced him to stay and watch. I was too cocky in my dealings with the demon and as punishment, Stolas began to mess with our lives.
Charles again tried to convince me not to meddle, but I found a book Stolas left in my study and just couldn't help myself. It was almost a year after my failed summons that I tried out the first thing in the book - a potion to shift oneself into a wolf. The first time I tried it, I killed a messenger I had sent to warn Charles and almost attacked Charles, who had once again come to save me from my foolishness. Luckily the potion wore off, and I again swore off meddling.
What I didn't realize was that the potion was semi-permanent. I am in essence a werewolf now. I am forced to change into a wolf on every full moon. However, should I need to become a wolf, say to protect myself, I can drink the potion and transform.
Since my first full moon transformation, Charles and I have been traveling. I'd say our most interesting adventure was when we immigrated to the US. I had to bribe the customs officer to not look in the conspicuously body sized box that contained Charles. That was also the end of our family's old money and since then I have done whatever odd jobs I can find.
Charles and I now own a lovely little cottage out in the country, even though we don't live there. We only go there the night before the full moon so that I can transform away from most people.
Almost everyday I regret summoning Stolas. One moment of weakness has led to an immortal lifetime of regret.
So what mistake do you regret the most? What one moment of your life would you change? How has it affected your life?
