Blackstone was founded in 1790 by pioneers Wilhelm Rask, of the Rask lords in Germany, Elizabeth and Samuel Hart, merchants from England and Philippe Baudelaire, of the Baudelaire mafia family from France. Although they seem like your average settlers looking to start fresh in a new world, they’re not. Wilhelm Rask is a demon, whose mother ascended from hell; Elizabeth Hart and her husband are angels from a long line originally from heaven and Philippe Baudelaire is a vampire.
Blackstone is a town created by the three founders for the sole purpose of different species living peacefully together without prejudice and the fear of being hunted by those who do not understand them. Eventually more and more various species arrived creating houses such as the Astra pack, a clan of werewolves, the Rosen House, the house representing sirens, and the Vinger family, the house representing the fairies.
Fast forward to modern day Blackstone, the new generation of Blackstone residents where the rich rule, status is everything, power is ultimate and being heir is almost everything. The sons and daughters of the first generation have grown up; sex, lies, hate and murder are all part of their daily lives. The lying, the cheating, the manipulation and the sex is the new generation’s motto.
But life isn’t always fun and games for the new generation, Blackstone is under attack by The Slayers, a group who believe that justice is everything, and that those disobeying the law must deal with the consequences. Not to mention The Council, another group of people from various species that have a vendetta against Blackstone and all that the founders have created. They believe species should stick to their own kind, and despise the inter species relations going on in Blackstone.

Wand Qualities | Hermione Granger
DRAGON HEARTSTRING: As a rule, dragon heartstrings produce wands with the most power, and which are capable of the most flamboyant spells. Dragon wands tend to learn more quickly than other types. While they can change allegiance if won from their original master, they always bond strongly with the current owner. The dragon wand tends to be easiest to turn to the Dark Arts, though it will not incline that way of its own accord. It is also the most prone of the three cores to accidents, being somewhat temperamental.
VINE: The druids considered anything with a woody stem as a tree, and vine makes wands of such a special nature that I have been happy to continue their ancient tradition. Vine wands are among the less common types, and I have been intrigued to notice that their owners are nearly always those witches or wizards who seek a greater purpose, who have a vision beyond the ordinary and who frequently astound those who think they know them best. Vine wands seem strongly attracted by personalities with hidden depths, and I have found them more sensitive than any other when it comes to instantly detecting a prospective match. Reliable sources claim that these wands can emit magical effects upon the mere entrance into their room of a suitable owner, and I have twice observed the phenomenon in my own shop.
the women - irene adler + belle du jour
“I’ve had my share of boyfriends. Never worked.”
“Ah, well that explains quite a lot, my dear. You and I… we’re not the sort of women who thrive while living with men. We like our freedom, our autonomy. And doesn’t that make love complicated?”
Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
