Makenna Geraldi has not received any gifts yet
My name is Makenna Geraldi, pleasure to make your acquaintance. I was born on the island of Malta, on a hot July day in the year 1920. I come from an extremely large family. My mother, Lora, and my father, Mikal, had eight children together. I am the third youngest child with two sisters and five brothers.
Many generations ago, an ancestor of mine named Luca was transformed into a vampire. Instead of running away and traveling the world, he chose to stay and to protect the Geraldi family line for eternity. Every few hundred years, Luca would choose one special Geraldi to be turned into a vampire in order to help protect the family. I was one of the lucky few that was chosen to become immortal. Luca believed that I was special and my inner flame burned brighter than all of my siblings. I contain a fiery compassion and a protective instinct.
I looked forward to my transition into the vampiric lifestyle. That all changed when I went on a trip to Barcelona in 1944. I was always interested in history and the arts, so Luca thought it would be a swell idea if I traveled around Europe. I traveled to Barcelona, Spain, lost within my own wanderlust. When I arrived at my destination, I discovered my love for the Spanish culture. I ended up staying in Barcelona to take an Art Appreciation class at the college. It was in that very class that I met a boy named Charles Iversen.
Mr. Iversen changed me in ways I did not realize were possible. I had never met someone I felt so passionate about, yet made me incredibly infuriated at the same time. We spent two years in a whirlwind of passion and ecstasy. Luca informed me that if I wanted to stay human and live a long, happy life with Charles then it was acceptable to turn down my heritage. This was a tough decision for me because I had already promised my life to Luca. My firmest belief is to never break a promise you make, especially when it comes down to family. With a heart full of love and regret, I left Charles with a promise to return to him.
On August 18, 1946 I took my last breath as a human. It took time to control my fiery spirit but with Luca’s training, I was able to hold my own and flourish in the vampiric lifestyle. As I had promised, I once again found my Charles. Despite my flaming eyes and porcelain skin, Charles never lost his everlasting devotion for me. We waited three years before I was finally stable enough to turn Charles into a vampire. I enjoyed those years with him as a fragile human. It made me really appreciate the human life and all it composed. Finally, once I was capable of turning him without killing him accidentally, I began Charles’s transition into a life he could have only imagined.
I have the ability of psychometry. Psychometry is the ability to discover facts of objects, people, and places by touching an object associated with them. When I touch certain objects, images of it's past flood my mind. I am the first vampire to possess a gift so many years after becoming a vampire. It is overwhelming at times, but with the help of Luca and my dear Charles, my gift will be within my control in no time.
Currently Charles works for multiple legal firms internationally and I work as a curator for the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Traveling has come to be one of our many passions and together we roam the Earth hand in hand, our flame never burning out.
