  1. Zapoi – Russian

”Perdono pero nunca olvido.”

Raúl was born in New York City to an aspiring actress. His father walked out of their life when he was barely three years old. His mother was never lucky with lovers and held a grudge against him since he was little because he looked just like his father. Raúl’s mother didn’t want anything to do with him so he was sent to live with family in the island. Raúl grew up with his Tio Ramon, his mother’s older brother, and Tio Ramon’s family in Las Marias in Puerto Rico. When Tio Ramon’s wife got sick, they moved back in New York, in West Harlem where they’ve been settled for years. After Tio Ramon’s wife passed away and Tio Ramon got sick, Raúl became the sole bread-winner of the family because his cousins couldn’t be bothered and were too busy with their own lives. Raúl took on a job after high school, not bothering to enter college. He worked at the Fulton Fish Market until Savio hired him as a butcher at the man’s shop in Little Italy. He’s been working at the shop for the last ten years and was getting by when things got worst with Tio Ramon and Raúl was forced to take on another job at a bar near the Penn Building called The Devil’s Hole. Raúl then met Mike, a bartender whom he became friends with and introduced him to the world of male escorts…

Fierro was born in São Paulo, Brazil during the Portuguese occupation. He was product of an assault on a young Guarani slave by a Portuguese official. His extraordinary strength and appearance separated him from his Guarani tribe and was often the targets of the young Guaranis even some Portuguese official. His fate changed once joining a rebel group that planned attacks on the Portuguese officials. He was caught the one night he and his group attacked but his life was spared and was sent to work in a gold mine north west of the country. He didn’t reach the mine after a higher official took him in and made him his own slave. Fierro then met the official’s young wife whom became his first Mistress. The relationship did not end well after Fierro decided to stop seeing the Mistress and marry a young Guarani she fell in love with. His lover was brutally murdered and he was yet again sent up north to travel only he wasn’t set up to work as a slave but a blood bank for his first Mistress’ vampire sister. After many years, his second turned Mistress turned him into a night walker and lived with her for centuries until he murdered her on New Years Eve in 1686. Now Fierro travels all over the world hunting his own kind and getting rid of his Mistresses’ bloodline along the way.

Fierro is fluent in Guarani, Portuguese, Brazilian-Portuguese, English, and Spanish. He can hold a light conversation in Italian and French. He knows the basic words in Arabic and German. All these linguistic abilities acquired through years of traveling and his passion for culture. 

Fierro has a distinct accent related to where he was born and where he lived for most of his life. It is thick, a mixture of his Portuguese and Guarani accent hardened in time but with enough effort he can hide [another ability he’d developed through years of practice.]

Fierro did not go to school. He learned to read first when he was 21 and was taught by her first Mistress, Amália. Once he was able to read he became fascinated with different stories of adventures experienced by other people who lived in a different place on a different time. Once his passion for reading was fueled, his desire to write sparked. Determined to write his own experiences and exploration, Fierro sought to learn how to write. He hasn’t stopped since.
