Marissa when human was very sad and feared nothing. She welcomed death, and it arrived in the form of a hungry merciless vampire that forced her will to live back into her heart. After the embrace, she kept much of her human personality in the form of a mild temperament in most circumstances. Occasionally however, she's known to push a person's buttons (perhaps her old habit of inviting death to her) and draw them into conflict. Once the person is engaged, she'll tempt them either with charm or with pity to get close enough to her to trap in whatever her current desire is. The best word to fit Marissa is: unpredictable.

Marissa actually comes from a tiny village not far outside of the Blue Orb forest where she spent most of her time as a child. Her family comes from a line of hunters. Her brother at one time even hunted her down after Wolfmoon had captured her, in order to kill her and rid the family of it's "shame" but was unsuccessful, and his life spared only at Marissa's pleading of Wolfmoon to not kill him.

Marissa Everstone is half vampire, half succubus, turned by the man who captured her and eventually fell in love with her, Cheyenne Wolfmoon. When she was human, all she had longed for was death, and feared nothing she was confronted with... until him. Not only did he make her desire to live through with a rush of fear, desire and love, but he vowed that she belonged to him and that only he was allowed to end her life.
It was fate that one day, he lost himself in his evil and threatened to do as he promised. He regained himself only long enough to tell her to put his sword through his chest to stop him. He didn't want to kill her, but he couldn't stop on his own. With pressure from him, she did finally stop him... but luckily it only paralyzed him temporarily, long enough for him to regain himself, and for her to escape. The damage had been done though, and she found herself very weak. When he was mobile again, promises were made, and they vowed to be together forever... making it so that it would be harder for him to kill her if he lost himself again.
Thus, Marissa was embraced in a night of passion, and the ending of her life. The next morning she'd be a new creature... now belonging to him in more than one sense of the word. Ever since, they have been inseperable, occasionally taking in a slave or fellow kindred to their home.
Together they work towards big goals, and always remember that no matter what happens that they are in it together. Marissa knows in her heart that if he ever died... she'd follow him into the blackness of death after avenging him, for like the promise that her life belonged to him... she too felt that the only hand allowed to end his existence in this world should be her own, which would never be allowed to happen.
