Funny. Nairu and Seratonin seem to have similar styles of sarcastic, somewhat aloof attitudes, but the two arrive at this point from different directions. They are both decent people deep down, but they also walk a bit more on the wild side than most of us willingly venture.

Poor Seratonin deals with all the things a vampire does. She must manage her appetite carefully, getting nutrients from socially acceptable sources such as meat and other strange (but less cruel) foods, and if she relapses too far, she will lose her basic resistance to sunlight and garlic, built up from removing certain unneccessary parts of her diet. Of course, she would also gain those other abilities of vampires, such as flying, transforming, and the resistance to injuries other than the familiar wooden stake and silver bullet. The one thing Seratonin liked about those powers was the ability to fly, and that ability can be obtained from plenty of non-bleeding sources. Seratonin is a wild animal attempting to become civilized.

Nairu, on the other hand, grew up with a huge family and little supervision. She thinks the world is generally a huge place with little concern for most individuals. Because this seems normal, she thinks that people who try to give too much advice are nagging. Therefore, she tends to be rude toward people, trying to weed out immediately the ones who are too uptight to deal with sarcastic jokes or a little criticism. She'll show her fun side later to those who make the cut. In fact, when alone or with people she really trusts, Nairu can be something of a "wild child," sleeping at odd times of day and otherwise doing anything she pleases.
