Claim to Fame

Most people know Mary as the owner and operator of Bloody Mary's bar. She is sure to be found there every night, tending to the needs of her patrons. There are also some well known rumors floating around about this particular vampire. Is she the fabled Bloody Mary? Perhaps she is a descendant of her, or Elizabeth Bathory, or both. Only one person knows for sure, and she isn't telling.


The roaring 20s were a wild and wonderful time in the country, especially in Chicago. Women were easy, crimes were high and alcohol was forbidden. The answer to all things, it seemed, were the speakeasies that were carefully located all throughout the city. One of these establishments was the home of Maryann Bathurst Elwood and her husband Vern, in the sense that they worked there. It wasn’t just a job as it was also a way of life, and a life that they enjoyed together.

Character Details

While she was a human, Mary led a fairly mundane life. She worked at the speakeasy to try and get a thrill out of things. Even with her desire to lead an action packed life she did realize that she found the most wonderful person to be married to. He showed her love in the truest of forms and that is something that she has never found since. Part of her still longs for such a love, yet another part desires to remain wild so as to never put herself out there like that. After all, she is a vampire now and such feelings are no longer needed. Due to this she can often times be seen with her patrons, humans and vampires alike, enjoying the night as best as she can. It doesn't matter if her companions are male of female; Mary simply wishes to enjoy life to the fullest. She also enjoys a good mystery, as made evident by the fact that she continues to allow the rumors about her to circulate.
