Reed Edwards was born over 400 years ago. His background is limited to those who knew him from that time. The Edward's family comes from England just outside of London. Reed is a Master Vampire, who has a passion for drawing and photography. He has recently come to Chicago at the request of his MoTC from Los Angeles.
While in Los Angeles, Reed's drawing titled, "Sarrow" won 1st place at a fund raiser for the victims of Katrina. It was purchased by well known actor; Brad Moik for 3.5 million dollars. Reed has not produced anything of that value since, however it is rumored that looking upon his drawing will make even the hardest man cry from it's life like detail.
A Master Vampire of the Padma Bloodline, Reed was brought over by Rojas. It is rumored that his sire, Rojas was brought over by Padma himself. Reed has been a part of the London, Paris and Los Angeles Courts. He has remained loyal and always in good standing. He is well known by the Vampire Community in Los Angeles because he was an Enforcer for the Court. The reason why he has come to Chicago is unknown, yet he has been telling those he meets from the Chicago's Kiss to help and support them in their time of need.
Reed has a complex personality that many never explore in its entirety. He is daunting and possessed of many layers. On the surface, many see gentle kindness and a soft-spoken, delicate young man. Certainly concern for others is something that shows through in his relations with them. He rarely raises his voice in conversation, unless it is necessary or unless something has deeply affected him. Similarly, he tries not to be unnecessarily confrontational, considering that it might be hurtful.
He is not deceptive, but he is not an open book, by any means. To most, he shows a disciplined, deeply focused individual, able to withstand whatever could be thrown at him. Even if others cannot be strong, his unique position forces him to do so. If allowed to become more familiar with him, his friends will find a perhaps surprisingly vulnerable man, one who must maintain his strength so that he of all people will believe in it. He would like to be cared for, but more important on his list of priorities is the protection of others, the caring for others so that they will be able to live fully.
Nonetheless, he is remarkably sensitive and can sympathise with others effortlessly. He knows when the time is right to show what is necessary, in order to win the trust of another or to show them that he is acting in good faith, or that they may reciprocate. He is very sensitive to the things that others will respond to, naturally, and tends to employ this empathy in his relations with others. Yet he carefully makes it so that most will not get too close to him, for their safety and his own. He often maintains himself as an outsider until or unless he can be persuaded otherwise.It can be difficult to get him to volunteer information unless it is directly applicable to the situation at hand. Usually he is not a fan of filling a void with chatter, but he can discuss intelligent topics in depth.
Meaningless chit-chat does not fit into his area of expertise, and it may contribute to others thinking that he might be awkward in certain situations. He can and does express himself freely, though, and that occurs not only through words, but through actions. When he meets someone to whom he can relate deeply or easily, he will express himself in his unique ways to them; to him, communication occurs on so many levels, and only one of those happens to be the verbal level.
