01. Prone to bouts of depression and mental instability - he's over 2,000 years old, can you blame him?
02. Never talks about Jesus to those he doesn't trust and will blatantly avoid any and all questions unless he's inebriated somehow.
03. Frequently enjoys classical music and techno.
04. Has light scarring on the right side of his neck from hanging.
05. Thinks Easter is hilariously entertaining.
06. Gets the heebie jeebies when people touch his neck. So don't. Seriously, don't.
07. While he has a large amount of guilt it is his own, and he doesn't let others make him feel less about himself. He's much too busy doing that on his own.
08. Yes, he's heard of Dracula, it was based on his first progeny. No, he does not care.
09. Has released all but two progeny: mostly by choice.
10. Drinking demon blood makes him a bit grumpy and he tends to start killing people.
11. Has lived all over the world and favors London, but isn't that fond of Africa - the witches there are brutal.

In the beginning; Judas stood by Jesus as his right hand man. As children, adolescents, adults - even as Jesus sought out followers for his new religion, Judas supported and encouraged his dear friend at first.
When the attention got to be too much, Judas began to worry about people finding out it was all a lie -- which he was sure it was. He went as far as trying to talk to Jesus about stopping with what good they did so far - giving people hope when they needed it - but everything was just too big to stop. The crowds became too big to control. Judas was semi-jealous of his friend over the affections he received from Mary, and resulted in passing snide comments about her profession and how she cramped his style.
The crowds were getting too loud for the group of Apostles - who were dealing with their own trials and tribulations for believing in Jesus and God. Therefore, Judas took it upon himself to give Jesus a warning in the best of intentions, and still admiring his friend. Unfortunately, while Judas was in a weakened state of doubt and panic, he was approached by the Roman priests.
He betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver, telling the Romans where they could find Jesus away from the crowds. Specifically, on a Thursday, in the Garden of Gethsemane. Judas' guilt made him attempt to give the silver back but the priest's would not accept the return. He threw the silver away as something hateful to himself and became a recluse for the remainder of his short mortal life.
Judas was cursed 'to walk the Earth forever, unattainable by Heaven or Hell' given he'd betrayed Jesus to the Romans; and in turn the guilt made him commit suicide by hanging himself on the Genus Cercis tree. (Later named, Judas Tree - cute, huh?) He hung for three days until a demon, Lilith, who was sent by Lucifer, cut him loose, poured its unclean blood into his mouth and made him the first Iscariot. Or, simply put, vampire.
When Judas awoke, he received a message from Lucifer 'For your aide in delivering the son of God and His followers into my hands, I have made you my son, that you may rejoice in Darkness and taste the dark and bitter fruits that you have sown.' But Judas refused, expressing that his guilt still remained and that he would rather not betray Him again. Judas tried to take his life numerous times before succumbing to the primal hunger for mortal blood.
Despite his past, Judas remained neutral through the many centuries -- much to Hell's chagrin. Except for when he dated Lilith through the Dark Ages.. then he was kind of an asshole.

✗ must survive on the blood of the living or risk becoming dangerously weak and wasting away to nothing.
✗ and, like all vampires, has a lack of a heartbeat, body heat, brainwaves, electrical impulses, need to breathe, and other bodily functions.
✗ has extremely keen senses that are superior to those of humans that include: ability to see in the dark, hear a human's heart beat, and possess enhanced sense of smell capable of tracking a human's blood over long distances.
✗ as a maker he can sense any pain or duress his six progeny undergo, and know when a progeny has died.
✗ immortal, meaning he will not physically age, remaining identical forever after becoming vampire. the only noticeable effects of aging are they become physically stronger with age, and more vulnerable to sunlight.
✗ is carrier of disease and plague so he won't be visiting any children's hospitals.
✗ can survive in daylight for a few hours before his skin begins to scorch.
✗ he can only be killed by a stake made of Aspen wood through the heart.
