}}Alyssa (formerly Alice) is one of the [[Vampire Kings]], and is the only female member of the group. Despite her gender, the vampiric lords of the shadowfell are still known collectively as "Kings" both because the name pre-dates her and because it is more memetic than any alternative. Physically, Alyssa appears to be a small 12 year old child.
+
}}Alyssa is one of the [[Vampire Kings]], as well as being the only female. She's still a Vampire King, though, becuase "Vampire Kings and Queen" doesn't have the same ring to it and "Vampire Monarchs" is just silly.
 
== Biography ==
 
 
=== Alice the Stonechild ===
 
Alyssa was given the name Alice when she was created by the mountain spirit [[Balvan the Millstone|Balvan]] and the air spirit [[Zonda]]. Her body was shaped from stone by Balvan to look like a childlike combination of her "parents'" features. At first she was only a statue, but she came to life as a spirit when Balvan and Zonda both added pieces of their own spirit-selves to her.
 
   
  +
== Early Life ==
Alice lived with Balvan and Zonda for approximately three years, however the conflict in her nature caused her to weaken continually, until she was on the verge of death. After exhausting all other options, Balvan made a pact with the Vampire King [[Swayne]] to save Alice's life by allowing him to turn her, on condition of Balvan's servitude. The West King succeeded with some difficulty in turning the Stonechild, whose physical body became detatched from her spirit. The now vampiric Alice, who would later go by the name Alyssa, left her father to live with and learn from Swayne, who taught her the basics of vampirism, as well as (inexplicably) the secret to shackling spirits. The spirit form of Alice continued to exist in the astral sea, now seperated from her physical body and accompanied by Zonda.
 
  +
Alyssa was born as Alice to the air spirit Zonda and the mountain spirit Balvan. Her body was shaped by Balvan to look like a combination of himself and Zonda. At first she was only a stone body, then Balvan added a piece of his essence but only created a small entity in the astral. Then Zonda placed some of her essence into the child, and she woke up. She lived out her days with her parents until she was slain by some unknown means. Swayne offered to bring her back and Balvan agreed. Balvan swore an oath of service to Swayne, but he was horrified to find that Swayne had turned Alice into a vampire. Spirits cannot break their oaths, so Balvan still serves Swayne to this day.
   
  +
== Vampirism ==
=== Alyssa the Vampire Queen ===
 
  +
Alice somehow found her away around becoming Swayne’s personal vampire BFF and carved out a piece of territory for herself. She now rules over Veriandi’s equivalent in the Shadowfell. Little is known about her practices other than what being a vampire would entail.
At some unknown time, Alice changed her name to Alyssa and rebelled against Swayne, staging an uprising where she managed to secure a number of spirits from Swayne and [[Hastings]], establishing herself a secure position among her fellow kings.
 
   
  +
== The Dead Wars ==
After that, Alyssa is known to have collaborated somewhat with the other kings during the dead wars, fighting against the [[Ytarrans]] and their retaliatory interplanar invasion of the [[Shadowfel]]. It may be during this time that Alyssa gained the ironic epithet "the Crone" despite her overly youthful appearance.
 
  +
When the vampire kings invaded through a portal into Ytarran lands and were counter invaded, Alyssa played a large part in fighting the Ytarrans, getting the rather ironic name “The Crone” for her trouble. This nickname is so comical because Alyssa, in fact, looks like a 12 year old girl.
