Written by WNDRLOST

The Ghoul King of the Damned Anatoly Krovokhleb Rasputin (a.k.a. The Corpse Conductor)

Anatoly Krovokhleb Rasputin, the everlasting ghoul-king, whose otherworldly aura transcends human perception. With his towering height and chiseled physique, he cuts a commanding figure, every inch of his being exuding a mesmerizing air of malevolence that draws all eyes to him. His alabaster skin seems to glow with an ethereal light, and his eyes, a fiery red, blaze with an intense, hypnotic glare that hints at the unfathomable power he wields.   His supernatural abilities, Corpseweave Sanguikinesis, allow him to manipulate blood and corpses with the deftness of a virtuoso, weaving them together into a deadly tapestry that he wields with the grace and precision of a skilled conductor. With a mere thought, he can summon forth his prized weapon, the Corpse Cartridge, a crimson-hued gun that he carries in a coffin-shaped briefcase, unleashing a hail of deadly bullets that leave his enemies quivering in fear.   But beneath his fearsome exterior lies a man with a silver tongue and a laid-back personality that belies his immense power. He exudes a flirty, chill vibe that draws people in and puts them at ease, even as they feel the chill of death emanating from him. Yet, when duty calls, he sheds his nonchalant demeanor and becomes a serious, unflinching force to be reckoned with. With his lethal skills and icy resolve, he is a force of nature, a blood grim reaper who walks the earth, feared and revered by all who cross his path.

Physical Description

General Physical Condition

A man of towering stature and muscular sinews, stands erect like a colossus among mortals. His imposing form towers above the rest, with a height that would make the gods themselves envious, and a build that could strike fear into the heart of even the most fearsome warrior.   His pale complexion, like the purest alabaster, shines like the moonlight against the blackest of nights. His chiseled features are accented by high cheekbones and a strong jawline, giving him the appearance of a deity. But it's his piercing gaze that strikes awe into those who look upon him. For his red eyes, like rubies ablaze, seem to bore into the soul, revealing the deepest of secrets and the darkest of desires.   Anatoly's long, flowing hair is the whitest of snow, cascading down his broad shoulders and back like a waterfall of silk. And when the light hits it just right, it sparkles like diamonds in the sun. His physique is a testament to his strength and power, with biceps that bulge like mountains, and a chest that heaves with every breath.   His movements are chaotic, yet powerful, like a predator stalking its prey. Every step he takes exudes confidence and authority, and every gesture is imbued with a subtle elegance.

Body Features

His skin is not entirely without color, for just beneath its surface pulses a crimson red, almost as though the lifeblood that courses through his veins were attempting to burst forth. It is as if his body is a canvas upon which some inscrutable painter has applied a brush to create a masterpiece of dark, brooding beauty.   But it's not only his skin that bespeaks his unearthly nature, for a closer examination reveals a labyrinthine network of tattoos etched upon his flesh. These markings, in shades of black and red, wind sinuously across his body, suggestive of the secrets and mysteries he carries within.

Facial Features

His face is chiseled with a sharp jawline that lends him an air of aristocracy. His cheekbones are high and prominent, creating deep hollows beneath that play with light and shadow to create an ethereal effect. His forehead is wide and smooth, giving way to a crown of white hair that cascades down his broad shoulders in a lustrous mane.   His most striking feature.. his eyes. They're a deep shade of crimson red, piercing and unforgiving like pools of blood that hold secrets and horrors untold. His gaze is intense and unwavering, betraying a fierce intellect that belies his easy-going demeanor.   Despite his supernatural abilities, Anatoly's face is not entirely inhuman. The skin of his face is pale, almost translucent, lending him an otherworldly quality that is both alluring and eerie. His nose is straight and narrow, and his lips are full and sensuous, yet there is a hint of cruelty in the curve of his mouth that reminds those who dare to cross him of the blood that flows beneath his skin.

Identifying Characteristics

When not hidden beneath his signature wide-brimmed hat, Rasputin's hair, a shock of white that stands out starkly against his dark attire, is styled in a manner reminiscent of his namesake, Grigori Rasputin. It lends him an air of enigma, as if he were privy to secrets unknown to mortal men.   But it's not only his physical appearance that sets Rasputin apart from his peers. His tattoos, which adorn his arms and torso, bear witness to a life lived in darkness and violence. Each inked design tells a story, a chronicle of the atrocities he has committed or witnessed throughout his unholy existence.

Physical quirks

He moves with the grace of a predatory animal, each step measured and purposeful, as if every move he makes is a calculated step in some grand design. And when he speaks, his voice resonates with a deep baritone that sends shivers down the spines of those who hear it.

Special abilities

Corpseweave Sanguikinesis is a power that only few are capable of mastering, and Anatoly Krovokhleb Rasputin is one of them. With this rare and enigmatic ability, Anatoly can manipulate blood and corpses, weaving them together to create powerful and deadly constructs that can be used for both offensive and defensive purposes.   Through the careful manipulation of blood and the necrotic energies that pervade corpses, Anatoly can create an intricate network of intertwined veins and sinews that can be used to ensnare his foes or bolster his allies. By drawing upon the very essence of life and death itself, he can imbue his constructs with an otherworldly vitality, rendering them all but impervious to harm.   But the true extent of Anatoly's power lies in his ability to fashion weapons and armor out of his creations. Using his Corpseweave Sanguikinesis, he can craft blades that are sharp enough to rend steel, shields that can withstand even the most devastating of blows, and even firearms that shoot bullets made entirely out of blood.   However, mastering Corpseweave Sanguikinesis is not without its risks. The powers of life and death are fickle and capricious, and those who would wield them must be prepared to face the consequences of their actions. Should Anatoly lose control over his creations, the consequences could be dire, with even his most trusted allies falling prey to the twisted machinations of his art.

Apparel & Accessories

He often dons a long coat in a color scheme of black and red, accentuated by the occasional hue of dark pink. The coat, crafted from a fine and supple material, drapes elegantly down his tall and muscular frame, swishing gently with each stride.   In keeping with his sinister aesthetic, he adorns himself with accessories that further emphasize his ominous presence. On his head, he sports a hat with a wide brim, adorned with a striking red ribbon that cascades down the back. A pair of leather gloves hug his hands tightly, completing the look of a true gentleman of the night.   But perhaps the most striking aspect of his wardrobe is the regal outfit he dons for special occasions. Adorned with intricate embroidery and glittering jewels, the ensemble exudes an air of royalty and sophistication. It's clear that Anatoly spares no expense when it comes to dressing to impress.   In the end, whether he's donning his everyday coat or his fanciest ensemble, Anatoly Krovokhleb Rasputin always looks the part of a dark and dangerous gentleman.

Specialized Equipment

Corpseweave Sanguikinesis, allowing him to manipulate blood and corpses with the utmost precision.

Mental characteristics

Personal history

Prologue, The "Holy" Priest

Born into a family of devout Russian Orthodox priests, Anatoly was raised with a strong sense of faith and morality. However, as he grew older, he became increasingly disillusioned with the hypocrisy and corruption he saw in the church hierarchy. Frustrated by the limitations placed upon him by his holy vows, Anatoly began to seek out more forbidden pleasures, including engaging in numerous illicit affairs with both men and women. It was one of these affairs that ultimately led to his downfall. Anatoly was caught in the act with the Russian queen herself, causing a scandal that reverberated throughout the entire country. Furious and humiliated, the queen's husband, the Tsar, ordered Anatoly to be hunted down and killed.   But even as his pursuers closed in, Anatoly refused to give up his hedonistic ways. In a desperate attempt to save himself, he stumbled upon an ancient tomb hidden deep within a graveyard. Inside, he found a mysterious crimson gun, which he later dubbed the Corpse Cartridge. As he picked it up, he felt a surge of power coursing through his veins, as if he had just tapped into something dark and forbidden. From that moment on, Anatoly was no longer the same man. He became a ghoul, his human form fading away until there was nothing left but pale skin, white hair, and glowing red eyes. He learned to harness the power of the dead and the spirits, using his newfound abilities to manipulate blood and corpses with ease. He even developed a unique technique that he called Corpseweave Sanguikinesis, which allowed him to create intricate and deadly patterns using the blood of his enemies.   Over the years, Anatoly became a feared and notorious figure in the criminal underworld. He took on countless jobs as a hired gun, always ensuring that the Corpse Cartridge was by his side. Though he remained a laidback and charming individual at heart, he was ruthless and deadly when it came to getting what he wanted. But even as he reveled in his newfound power, Anatoly couldn't escape the haunting memories of his past. He was tormented by the knowledge that he had been responsible for so much pain and suffering, and he began to wonder if there was any way he could ever truly redeem himself.   Despite his inner turmoil, Anatoly continued to live life on his own terms, carving out a niche for himself in a world that had rejected him. He may have been a ghoul, but he was also something more: a survivor, a fighter, and a force to be reckoned with. And as long as he had the Corpse Cartridge in his hands, he knew that he would always have the power to do anything he wanted, consequences be damned.  

Intro, Death's Messenger's Death

A group of raiders were hot on his heels, firing at him relentlessly. His pale skin was soon stained with crimson as he took three bullets to the chest, but he didn't give up. He knew he had to keep running, keep evading, keep surviving. But as he tried to slip past a crowd, he was shot once again, this time in the forehead. It was a fatal wound, but for Anatoly, death was just another part of his existence. As the messenger of death, he knew that even if he died, he would revive again.   Despite his powers of Corpseweave, his abilities were fluctuating and unreliable, leaving him vulnerable in this moment. He knew he could have easily killed his pursuers, but he also knew that it wasn't worth the risk. With his bat wings flapping rapidly, he tried to accelerate away from the danger, but the wounds were too deep. It wasn't long before he fell unconscious, his body unable to keep up with the damage inflicted upon it.   As he lays there, unconscious and bleeding, Anatoly's mind drifted to thoughts of his past life as a human. He thought of the people he had loved and lost, and the mistakes he had made along the way. He wondered if he had made the right choice in becoming what he was now, and if it was all worth it. Strange, huh? Who knew that after all these years, only now would he reflect on his own actions. How foolish, he thought. But even as he questioned himself, he knew that he had no choice but to keep moving forward. His survival was all that mattered, even if it meant facing death time and time again in a one gigantic never-ending loop.   In that moment, Anatoly showed a side of himself that was all too human. He was a creature of darkness and death, but he was also a being with emotions, thoughts, and regrets. And as he lays there, waiting for his next revival, he knew that he would continue to run, continue to fight, and continue to live, no matter what the cost. But, before he went fully mind blank, a thought came across his mind. What if he doesn't get revived?

Gender Identity

He identifies himself as male, well, he uses he / him pronouns, without the slightest inkling of contemplation or self-reflection regarding his gender. The intricacies of his gender identity are a non-issue for him, for he possesses a single-minded determination to pursue his goals and objectives with unwavering focus. The concept of gender identity simply eludes him. It is as if the concept of gender identity is a mere afterthought in the grand scheme of his existence. Yet, it is this very quality that makes him all the more fascinating and unique, for he stands apart from the normative expectations and conventions of gender.   In a sense, Anatoly's gender identity is a reflection of his larger-than-life persona, one that defies conventions and expectations in every way possible. His gender identity, or lack thereof, serves as an example to his uncompromising and unyielding character, a quality that's both admirable and awe-inspiring.


Anatoly is bisexual, having engaged in sexual activities with both men and women. However, it is his attraction to men that seems to hold a special place in his heart. The way he moves, the way he speaks, and the way he looks at a man can make his heart skip a beat. He revels in the excitement of the unknown, the thrill of exploring new experiences, and the way that the masculine form can entice and entrance him.   But what is it that truly draws Anatoly to men? Perhaps it is the way that they can exude power and confidence, taking charge in situations where others might falter. Or maybe it is the way that their bodies can be both hard and soft, with muscles rippling under the skin and the potential for tenderness lurking just beneath the surface. Whatever the reason, Anatoly is undeniably drawn to the male form, and he is not shy about indulging in his desires.   It is worth noting, however, that Anatoly's sexuality is not something that he flaunts or advertises. He is not one to shout from the rooftops about his conquests, nor does he feel the need to label himself in any particular way. He simply follows his instincts and allows himself to be drawn to those who catch his eye, regardless of gender or societal norms.   That being said, Anatoly is not without his romantic inclinations. He may be laidback and flirty, but when he finds someone who truly captivates him, he becomes intensely serious and devoted. He is not one to give his heart easily, but when he does, he does so fully and completely, with all the passion and intensity that he can muster.


His early years were spent under the tutelage of the church, where he was groomed to become a devout follower and servant of the faith. However, as he matured and gained greater insight into the workings of the church, he became increasingly disillusioned by the corrupt and duplicitous practices that he observed.   The young Anatoly began to question the motives and methods of the clergy, sensing that there was more at play than met the eye. His thirst for knowledge and understanding drove him to delve deeper into the mysteries of the church, despite the danger and risk that this posed to his person.


He is, at once, a "priest," a gunner, and an assassin, serving as a herald of death, a bringer of doom, and a reaper of souls. He is a master of deathly arts, an expert in the use of both firearms and the mystical powers that he commands, and a cold-blooded killer who shows no mercy to his targets.   As a "priest," Anatoly serves a higher power, one that is beyond the mortal realm, and whose nature is shrouded in mystery and darkness. He is a vessel for the power of death, a conduit through which the forces of the afterlife flow, and a messenger of the Grim Reaper himself. He conducts his rites in secret, hidden from the prying eyes of the living, and his congregation is composed of the undead, the damned, and the lost souls who wander the liminal spaces between life and death.   But Anatoly's true calling is that of a gunner and an assassin, a role in which he excels with chilling precision and deadly force. He is a master of firearms, able to wield them with the ease and grace of a seasoned marksman, and he favors the use of his crimson red gun, the Corpse Cartridge, which he carries in a coffin-shaped briefcase. The weapon is a marvel of arcane engineering, powered by the blood of the slain and infused with the essence of death itself. With it, Anatoly can strike down his foes from afar, raining death and destruction upon them with ruthless efficiency.

Accomplishments & Achievements

To begin with, Rasputin's mastery of Corpseweave Sanguikinesis is truly unparalleled. This unique ability allows him to manipulate the blood and corpses of his enemies, which he can use to devastating effect in battle. He has been known to craft deadly weapons and constructs out of the very flesh and blood of his foes, leaving his enemies in shock and awe.   Furthermore, Rasputin's exceptional proficiency with the Corpse Cartridge is a testament to his skill as a gunner. This crimson red gun, which he carries in a coffin-shaped briefcase, has a reputation for being one of the deadliest weapons in the wasteland. With it, he has faced and vanquished numerous foes, both human and non-human alike.   But Rasputin's accomplishments do not end there. He is also a master of strategy and tactics, often employing unorthodox methods to achieve his goals. His ability to outthink and outmaneuver his enemies has earned him a fearsome reputation, and many who have crossed him have met with a grisly end.   On top of all that, Rasputin's silverfoxy personality and flirty charm have made him a hit with the ladies. Despite his often laidback demeanor, he is always serious when it comes to matters of importance. His razor-sharp wit and clever wordplay have earned him many allies and admirers, who are always eager to follow him into battle.

Failures & Embarrassments

Despite his impressive powers and intimidating appearance, even he was not immune to failures and embarrassments. In fact, his downfall started with one of his most humiliating moments: being caught having an affair with the Tsarina of Russia.   It was a scandal that rocked the nation, and even those who had once revered Rasputin turned on him in disgust. How could someone who had claimed to be a man of God engage in such sinful behavior? The backlash was fierce, and Rasputin's reputation was irreparably tarnished.   But Rasputin's troubles did not end there. The fallout from his affair with the Tsarina was just the beginning of a string of failures that ultimately led to his demise. As word of his scandalous affair spread, Rasputin became a hunted man, pursued by those who sought to bring him to justice for his sins.   As the pressure mounted, Rasputin's behavior became increasingly erratic and paranoid. He lashed out at those around him, accusing them of conspiring against him and becoming increasingly isolated from the world until he was successfully gunned down by a group of men. It was a downward spiral that would ultimately lead to his tragic end.

Mental Trauma

You see, as a former human turned ghoul, Anatoly has experienced a great deal of emotional and psychological pain. He's witnessed the worst of humanity, both in life and in death, and it's left an indelible mark on his psyche. His ability to manipulate blood and corpses is not just a physical power, but also a manifestation of his mental trauma.   Anatoly's trauma is rooted in his upbringing, which was rife with abuse and neglect. His parents were religious fanatics who believed in harsh discipline, and they viewed their son as a vessel for their twisted beliefs. They often locked him in a small closet for hours on end, denying him food and water until he begged for forgiveness. This cycle of abuse continued throughout his childhood, and as he grew older, he became more and more isolated from the outside world.

Intellectual Characteristics

His mind is sharp and analytical, yet he possesses an intuitive understanding of human nature that enables him to manipulate those around him with ease.   Despite his laidback personality and flirty demeanor, Anatoly is an individual who takes his intellectual pursuits very seriously. He is a voracious reader and consumes knowledge at a prodigious rate, constantly seeking to expand his understanding of the world around him. His curiosity knows no bounds, and he is always on the lookout for new experiences and new ideas to explore.   Anatoly's ability to manipulate blood and corpses through his Corpseweave Sanguikinesis power is a testament to his profound understanding of anatomy and the inner workings of the human body. He possesses a deep knowledge of biology, physiology, and anatomy that enables him to harness his powers with deadly precision.   In addition to his scientific acumen, Anatoly is also a deeply spiritual individual with a profound understanding of religion and the supernatural. His former life as a human priest has given him an unshakable faith in the divine, yet he is also a deeply cynical and skeptical individual who questions the motivations of those who claim to be agents of the divine.

Morality & Philosophy

His twisted and complex worldview is rooted in his upbringing and his experiences, particularly his time as a human and his subsequent transformation into a ghoul.   Rasputin's moral code is centered around the concept of survival of the fittest, the idea that only the strongest and most adaptable individuals are meant to survive in this world. He sees himself as a predator, a hunter who must kill or be killed in order to thrive in the harsh wasteland that he inhabits. He has no qualms about taking the lives of others, viewing them as nothing more than prey to be hunted and consumed.   But Rasputin's worldview goes deeper than mere survival. He sees himself as an agent of God, a divine instrument of justice that is meant to carry out the will of the almighty. He believes that his ability to manipulate blood and corpses is a gift from God, a sign that he is chosen to carry out a higher purpose. His actions, no matter how violent or brutal they may seem, are all part of a grand plan that is beyond mortal understanding.   In Rasputin's eyes, morality is a fluid concept, something that is constantly changing and evolving based on the circumstances. He believes that there are no absolute rights or wrongs, only actions that are necessary or unnecessary in a given situation. His killing sprees, while they may seem heinous to some, are simply a means to an end, a way of eliminating threats and preserving his own existence.   But while Rasputin may seem like a heartless monster, there is a softer side to him as well. He is a deeply spiritual individual, with a profound reverence for the mysteries of life and death. He views his powers as a conduit to the afterlife, a way of communing with the spirits of the departed. He is a man of contradictions, a killer with a conscience, a predator with a sense of honor.


First and foremost, he has a deep reverence for death and the dead. This is not surprising, given his ability to manipulate corpses with his Corpseweave Sanguikinesis. To him, corpses are not just lifeless husks, but vessels of power that he can harness to achieve his goals. He views death as a natural and necessary part of the cycle of life, and believes that by manipulating the dead, he can bring order and harmony to the chaotic world. However, this reverence for death also means that Anatoly has a deep-seated fear of dying himself. He knows that as a ghoul, he is already living on borrowed time, and that his existence is a fragile and tenuous one. This fear has made him paranoid and suspicious of those around him, and he always keeps his Corpse Cartridge close at hand, ready to defend himself at a moment's notice. Being revived doesn't mean that he's immortal, who knows what if death suddenly starts to embrace him when he thought that he would've been revived? It's horrid.   Finally, Anatoly is deeply distrustful of organized religion. Having once been a priest himself, he has seen firsthand the corrupting influence that religious institutions can have on people. He believes that true power comes from within, and that anyone who seeks to impose their will on others through religion or ideology is a fraud and a charlatan.

Personality Characteristics


Driven by his insatiable thirst for power and a deep-seated desire to assert his dominance over others. Despite his laidback demeanor, there's an undercurrent of darkness and cruelty that permeates everything he does. Perhaps it's the result of his ghoul-like existence? Or maybe it's just an inherent aspect of his personality. Either way, it's clear that Anatoly is not someone to be trifled with. At the core of Anatoly's motivation is his desire for control. He's spent years honing his powers, manipulating blood and corpses to do his bidding. With the Corpse Cartridge at his side, he's a ghoul to be reckoned with. But it's not just physical control that Anatoly craves. He's also obsessed with the idea of controlling people's minds and emotions, using his charisma and wit to bend them to his will.   Of course, with great power comes great responsibility, or so the saying goes. But for Anatoly, responsibility is a foreign concept. He's driven by his own desires and motivations, never stopping to consider the consequences of his actions. He's a loose cannon, a ticking time bomb, always on the verge of exploding in a fit of rage or violence. And yet, despite his volatile nature, there's a strange sense of charisma and allure to Anatoly. People are drawn to him, even when they know they shouldn't be. Perhaps it's his dumbass weird personality, or maybe it's the mystery and danger that surrounds him. Whatever the reason, he shouldn't be taken lightly. He's good at manipulation and control, that's literally his power, able to bend others to his will with ease. And yet, despite his dark and sinister nature, there's a strange sense of empathy and understanding that lurks just beneath the surface. It's as if Anatoly is constantly battling against his own inner demons, struggling to reconcile his desire for power with his own humanity. In the end, Anatoly is a man of many contradictions. A ghoul who's both evil and not, a former human who's embraced his own darkness. He's a gunner who wields the power of blood and death, a priest who's forsaken his own faith.

Virtues & Personality perks

Despite his somewhat "evil" reputation, there's a certain aloof charm to his personality that's hard to resist. He's got a laidback vibe that's both flirty and chill, but when it comes to serious matters, he can be as hard as a diamond. His intelligence and quick wit are simply unmatched, and his words are like razor-sharp daggers that cut straight to the heart of any matter. Anatoly has a deep and unwavering loyalty to those he deems worthy of his respect, and his fierce protectiveness of those he cares about is second to none. He has a way of making you feel like the most important person in the world when you're with him, like nothing else matters except for the present moment.

Vices & Personality flaws

Despite his imposing figure and otherworldly powers, he's certainly no saint. First and foremost, Anatoly's laidback and flirty personality can often come across as insincere and manipulative, as he tends to use his wit and charm to get what he wants without truly caring about the consequences. He's a bit of a chameleon, adapting his personality and demeanor to fit whatever situation he finds himself in, which can make it difficult to trust him fully.   Furthermore, his persona belies a deep-seated insecurity and need for validation. He craves attention and adoration, often going to great lengths to subtly impress those around him, whether it's through flashy displays of power or seductive flirtation. This desperate need for approval can make him reckless and impulsive, as he prioritizes his own desires over the safety and well-being of others. But perhaps the most troubling of Anatoly's flaws is his tendency towards sadism and cruelty. His power over blood and corpses gives him a twisted pleasure in manipulating and torturing others, often taking pleasure in their pain and suffering. He sees himself as a godlike figure, capable of controlling life and death, and revels in the power that gives him.


This guy takes personal grooming seriously. His skin is free of blemishes, his hair is well-kept, and he's always impeccably shaven. The cleanliness of his appearance is accentuated by his pale complexion, giving him an otherworldly yet captivating appearance.   But it's not just his appearance that's immaculate, it's his scent too. The guy smells like he just stepped out of a fragrance commercial. I'm talking about a unique scent that would make even the most refined perfumers envious. It's a musky aroma that combines hints of lavender, sandalwood, and a touch of spice that leaves people wondering what cologne he's wearing. His scent is so captivating that even his enemies would be momentarily mesmerized.   Let's talk about his shaving routine. The guy takes shaving to a whole new level. He's not content with just any old razor. No, he's got a straight razor that's so sharp that it could cut through a sheet of paper with ease. And he uses this razor with such precision that he leaves not a single hair out of place. You'd think that he was performing some sort of ancient ritual with the way he approaches shaving.

Known Languages
Anatoly Krovokhleb Rasputin is quite the linguist, and his ability to learn and adapt to new languages is as impressive as it is diverse. As a ghoul who's been around for quite some time, he's had the opportunity to learn and perfect numerous languages from different eras and regions, all while maintaining his wit, quirkiness, and human emotions.   Aside from his native tongue of Russian, Anatoly is proficient in a variety of languages, including Old Norse, Latin, and even some archaic languages like Aramaic and Akkadian. He's also quite fluent in English, which he picked up during his many travels and encounters with English-speaking individuals. But Anatoly didn't stop at just the common tongues; he's also learned some obscure and unconventional languages, like the tongue of the mysterious Elders and the primal language of the beasts.
