Our Kickstarter campaign has received $74,000 from over 2,000 backers! TV Tropes 2.0 is coming. There is no stopping it now. We have 4 days left. At $75K we can also develop an API and at $100K the tropes web series will be produced. View the project here and discuss here.
Characters seen throughout The Vampire Chronicles.
Killed Off for Real: By Tommy and Marklin in Taltos, to prevent him from returning to the Talamasca and exposing the intercepted communications.
Bi the Way: Had a few female lovers, but the majority were male. Justified in that vampires typically see gender as a non-issue.
Emergency Transformation: Marius never really wanted to turn him, but Armand got into a fight, got wounded with a poisoned blade and was on the brink of death when Maruis decided to save his life by making him a vampire.
Trauma-Induced Amnesia: As a mortal child, he was abducted from his Russian home and brought over to Europe as a slave boy. The apparant brutality of this event caused him to forget pretty much anything, including his name or how to speak. It takes him a long time under Marius' care (and the transformation into a vampire) to remember things bit by bit. And they trouble him.
Yaoi Guys: Mostly with Marius, but he also has some sorts of... ahem... chemistry with Lestat, Louis and Daniel.
Lonely Doll Girl: She has a whole bunch of dolls. Which, while she was growing up, she used to camouflage the fact that she'd kept the corpse of a woman she killed out of envy for the woman's adult body.
Ill Girl: The main reason Lestat turned her into a vampire was due to the fact that she was dying of tuberculosis. She's also, well, his mother, and the only member of his mortal family that actually gave a damn about him.
I Love You, Vampire Son: Zig-zagged. She was Lestat's birth mother, but Lestat was the one who turned her into a vampire.
Refuge in Audacity: The only reason he's able to get away with calling himself a vampire publicly, while making money off of centuries-old vampire secrets, is because mortals think it's just a stage act that he's very, very dedicated to. Only other vampires and the Talamasca know otherwise.
Eye Scream: Maharet suffered this, and inflicts it upon her victims, tearing out their eyes to put into her sockets so she can see again.
I'm a Humanitarian: The vision that introduces them is of them as young women on either side of an older woman's cooked corpse, preparing to eat it. Turns out she was their mother, and it was their culture's Due to the Dead. Later, Mekare kills Akasha by eating her heart and brain.
Monster Lord: Mekare becomes the new Queen of the Damned upon eating Akasha's heart and brain.
Monster Progenitor: As the original vampire, but she herself only created two fledglings: Khayman and Enkil.
Demonic Possession: The reason for the above. She's possessed by the demon Amel, who is the reason for vampires existing. If Akasha were to die (and thus expel Amel from her body), vampires would die as well... at least until Mekare Took a Third Option.
