Born in the kingdom of Edowen, she was born into a noble family with a lot on her shoulders. Though she wasn’t royalty, her father was the King’s general. Due to her father’s standing it caused a lot of controversy when his name needed to be carried on, but his only child was a female. Her mother was never around when she was younger, she never had a chance to even meet her. As far as she was aware her mother died at birth, though that was never proven. Her Father was a man of great strength and he wanted an heir like none other. Desperate, he began to do as much as he could to grow his daughter’s strength, however, he was depressed to see she was a succubus. Though her type of demon and gender caused him a great deal of problems he trained her mercilessly as he needed her to be strong. Years passed as he cornered her into gaining power, he told her unless she gained power he would never accept her. Finally she had become stronger and was older now. He demanded her to make a child and stated if it wasn’t a boy she was to kill it.
For years Rikka tried to find someone who would fit the title that her father wanted, and then she met a man. The man was odd, he was full of magic and weird thoughts. He wanted to gain power, a power that none had ever seen. Interested she listened as he rattled on about his experimentations and what he pulled from it all. He stated he was able to make creatures with unimaginable power. With her influence as a noble, she decided to back him. As long as he gave her something in return.
For years she followed him, pumping money and influence into his research. She went around kidnapping people and creatures to further his research, his finding, the power he would be able to provide. At the start of it all, she had taken him to the King and they made a deal. It consisted of Salem getting the backing of the kingdom, in return he had to destroy their only enemy, Milinia. Though that was no issue to her, she did find a slight issue with his kidnapping of children. When he returned from Milinia he had 4 children with him.
Children was always a soft spot for Rikka, she didn’t sit well with the idea of children being experimented on, and however she turned an eye because it was for power. After the first two had died she couldn’t take it anymore and demanded he make another lab just for them. Salem had spent weeks if not months only in that other lab, so much so she had to go there just to see him. They had spent many days together and she had realized she was around him so long there was something there between them. She began to visit the lab to see him, things were always awkward due to the two children, and it hurt her to see them. After a couple years she finally couldn’t take it anymore and begged Salem to set them free but he seemed shocked she would deny him of such subjects. He grew mad yelling that she didn’t understand the beauty of research. Right as she was sure he was going to lose it he began to smile and asked if she wanted a taste of power.
That night she felt her fantasies die as her body grew hot, but not because of her power but because of the pain. To her surprise she felt her body fall to the ground as a blade began to tear through the skin causing blood to fall along the ground below her. She was dying. Her life, was over. Everything went black for her as she was sure she was dead.
One day she felt something cold, it jarred her from her eternal sleep, the sleep she had accepted. She felt her eyes open slowly and the cold began to grow warm. She felt herself gasp but she didn’t do the movement. She felt tears, but she wasn’t crying. She felt pain, but she wasn’t hurt. Her sight showed her something strange a face, it was blurry, yet it wasn’t her eyes, it was much duller. Something stung ask she felt herself hack and cough, but she was just fine. Slowly she felt herself slip away as darkness surrounded.
Around her was darkness but before her was a mirror, a mirror that seemed to emit its own light. She moved towards it, slowly moving her hand out to touch it. Right as she did there was a reflection but it wasn’t hers. It was a girl, much younger than her, with bright blue hair and ocean blue eyes. She stared into the reflection of the girl for a while before she noticed her lips move.
‘Who are you?’
This was interesting to her, she didn’t care how they were hear she wanted to know who she was. Smiling lightly she moved her hand along the glass as if to caress the young child’s face. To most of her surprise she noticed her push her cheek against her hand, as if she could actually touch her. “You can call me Rikka little one.”
‘Will you hate me too?’
Her eyes widened as she noticed the words, but couldn’t hear them. The child wanted to know if she would hate her. Why would she hate her? Her eyes adjusted more as she realized who the girl was. It was the little girl Salem was experimenting on. “No, I will never hate you…” she said back to the reflection of the girl. Her other hand moved to the mirror to touch where her hand would be. The little girl broke down, falling to her knees in tears.
It crushed her heart to see the girl like this, but why was she seeing her this way. Why she was alone with her, she was dead. She could hear Salem’s laugh outside of her as something clicked. He was experimenting with demon blood. Oh no, he used her blood in this girl and now she was here with her. She bit her lip. “I will help you”. For years she hadn’t been able to help the child, but now, trapped in her she was able to do something. She took control, causing her eyes to snap open as she noticed Salem’s features light up. He yelled her name in glee as she rose off of the table. Her hand moved quickly, as it seemed to darken causing her hand to slap right along the side of Salem’s face and send him flying backwards. “You will not touch her anymore, I won’t let you.” She was done with letting him hurt children, that was something she couldn’t sit by with anymore. She turned and forced herself to run out of the lab and into the forest, however something began to grow within her. A burning need, a need for blood. She felt her mind spin as she went into a rage at the scent of life being near. Rikka moved through the forest with ease finding her way before a little village, her skin was ripping, blood was beginning to drip along the ground, her eyes fixated on a human, no, on food.
Time had passed as she felt warm blood run along her body as there was a pile of bones around her. She was laying in the pool of blood gasping. What even happened?
‘No… no!’ the little girls voice broke through her consciousness and shoved her back into the darkness. Again she was stuck in the background watching as the girl cried and tried to get the blood off of her. She kept asking why over and over again before she began to choke in her tears. It was no use they blacked out.
Later they awoke in Salem’s lab as he continued with his normal happenings, but a day or two later is when they were found and their life began to change.
