"I think I like the idea of being a divide by zero error for the Mundanes."
Lyrica Hubert is a sarcastic Goth girl who got her fondest wish to become a real life Daywalking Vampire. But despite her frankly ridiculous power level, she just wants to be left alone to sarcastically judge the world.
Lyrica Hubert was a transfer student at Chibiusa's school, Juuban Municipal Primary School. She was a very pretty girl who was popular with her schoolmates, and supposedly the daughter of an ambassador, but for a time was actually an enemy. Under the influence of Mysterious Vampire Lemures from the Dead Moon Circus, she captured two girls, Ishihara and Kuwano, who had been walking by her home, the embassy of U Country (aka Yuberia).
Suspicious of her, Chibiusa, Momoko, and Kyuusuke went to the embassy together. While there, Momoko asked to use the bathroom, and Lyrica showed her where it was, but when it took a suspiciously long time for them to return the others went to look for her, and found Lyrica drinking Momoko's blood.
Lyrica transformed into her Lemures form and attacked the children, but the Sailor Senshi and Tuxedo Mask arrived just in time and distracted her with the "Sailor Special Garlic Attack," allowing Sailor Moon to dispatch her with "Moon Gorgeous Meditation." The Lemures possessing her was destroyed and she returned to being a normal girl, not remembering her time as a vampire.... at first.
Turning to the Dark Side
Over time, Lyrica began to exhibit Goth-like tendencies, dying her hair black and sporting a pair of fake vampire fangs. She styled herself as a cool, aloof loner who was too cool for school, all the while fantasizing about being a real vampire. She became friends with Momoko, Chibiusa, Kyuuske, and Tamasaburo, forming a tight knight "Scooby gang" that went around solving mysteries and like a micro pastiche of the Sailor Team, under the command of "Sailor Tamasaburo" who was crossdressing. (This friendship would persist through to the Crystal Millennium.)
She was briefly part of the Death Busters' Replacement "Bitches 5" in the Philosophia department.
Lyrica had the unfortunate luck to be killed twice, once in the first Nonary Game after being partially converted into a Cyberman and then again a few months after she was revived by the Dragon Balls during the Night of the Nine Knives in 2013.
No one revived her this time, as everyone assumed someone else had done it and that Lyrica had not shown up again because of her natural anti-social tendencies.
Lyrica was revived again in 2018 via the Dragonballs during the course of an investigation by Sakura Xadium Aino into the case of a "revived" Lyrica Hubert living in the Embassy District. Checking to see if the "real" Lyrica was actually dead, Sakura had Kaelyn Peinforte contact the afterlife and she made contact with Lyrica's soul.
Back, on one condition
Lyrica, whose goth sensibilities were tickled pink by being dead in a black, torturous afterlife, only agreed to be revived if Sakura used the Dragonballs to revive her and granted her the second wish on the balls upon revival. Sakura agreed, and Lyrica was revived, whereupon she instantly asked Shenlong to make her a daywalker vampire like Blade.
Unfortunately Shenlong had never seen Blade, but had seen Twilight, and so revived Lyrica as a Twilight-style Vampire, who sparkles in the sunlight.
Annoyed by this, Lyrica made Sakura take her back in time a bit where she trained with the Hellsing Organization and became a fairly powerful operative. Her time there has only exacerbasted her aloof, sarcastic manner, and she can't help but talk her way into trouble.
Being a Twilight Style Vampire, she doesn't play by normal vampire rules, which is alternately a blessing and an embarrassment to her.
Her skin is flawless and textured with a marble-like substance much harder and stronger than granite. Due to the crystalline properties of her cells, when exposed to sunlight, her body sparkles like diamonds due to prismatic reflection. Luckily, as a goth she has a lot of white face power covering her whole body to offset the effect somewhat.
She can't cry, and her skin has a granite-like appearance and impenetrability. To a Human it feels hard and cool to the touch, but not to another vampire. Her heart no longer beats and severed limbs can be reattached. Due to work done on her by Hellsing, she is also a fairly fast regenerator of damage.
She also has superhuman powers, such as speed, strength, and incredibly keen senses. She is able to hear for miles and see in total darkness.
She is immortal unless destroyed. Unable to sleep, she spends all her days and nights awake reading shitty poetry and hentai manga. She is unharmed by garlic, holy items, or wooden stakes; has reflections and shadows, and can walk freely in the sunlight without being physically damaged by it.
She has a kind of animal magnetism about her thanks to her Vampire nature, but she manages to damp it down by being a sarcastic asshole and wearing a lot of makeup.
She doesn't need to breathe, though she does it out of habit. She can stay underwater for as long as she wants.
She does drink human blood, kindly provided by the Hellsing Organization in handy juice box containers. If she doesn't get it, she gets tired and even more cranky than usual, to the point of a blinding rage if she's starved of it.
She can pretend to eat normal food, but has to hurl it up later as she can't digest it.
The vampire venom in her body gives her a pleasant, alluring scent.
Her jaws are strong enough to sever limbs. Her teeth are flawless, unbreakable, and razor sharp at the edges. They are also incredibly strong, able to bite through almost any solid substance, including vampire skin. Her teeth are also venomous.
She has 25 pairs of chromosomes, 2 chromosomes more than Humans.
She is able to run in excess of a hundred miles per hour, substantially faster than the Human eye can see. When vampires run, they become "all but invisible."
They can lay down and sit up within the same fraction of a second, almost without having to even think about going through the motions. Movements are almost instantaneous.
Another enhanced trait is her unstoppable physical strength. She is thousands of times stronger than any Human, able to lift objects several hundreds of times her own weight. She can crush granite boulders, subdue any prey, throw cars, crush metal, and uproot trees with her bare hands. She is able to leap over a 50 yard wide river with ease.
Her senses are also greatly enhanced, enabling her to see, hear, smell, feel, and taste things imperceptible to humans.
Sight: While running, a she can see and sense everything that is around her, allowing her to keep tabs of her surroundings and avoid hitting anything unnecessarily. Her vision is incomparable. Everything is much sharper, and more defined, and unhindered by darkness. Her sense of sight exceeds by far that of a hawk: She can see objects in microscopic detail, and can see into the invisible spectrum of light.She also much better depth perception than humans.
Her enhanced vision allows her to see the smallest details, and extends into the ultraviolet region of the light spectrum.
Smell: She can smell objects several miles away in a good breeze. When not breathing, she feels uncomfortable due to the lack of smell.
She can learn to smell differences between the scents of various humans' blood, as well as scents of other things (like fabrics - the unique scent of denim). The range of her senses can be increased (though only fractionally) through concentration.
Hearing:She can hear the most muted sounds such as the fluttering wings and heartbeats of small birds flying through the forest, the scurrying noises of animals that were beneath the ground, as well as an army of ants on the ground.
She can hear sounds coming from several miles away, and even with her eyes closed, she can be sure that there are multiple people in a room thanks to their varied breathing patterns.She can hear the sound of a heartbeat, a pulse thudding in a vein, and words spoken too quietly or too fast for humans to detect.
Touch: She can feel the slightest changes of temperature around her, though not be bothered by it. She can feel the heat radiating from a human several meters away.
Taste: She has a similarly enhanced sense of taste allowing them to taste flavors with much more depth and precision. She can taste the differences of particles in their atmosphere.She can also detect minute differences between similar flavors.
Sixth sense: She also has a keen sense of danger, usually from something strong enough to harm them. Sometimes, she can even detect danger before they know it consciously.
Another impressive feature about vampires is her virtual indestructibility. She body is so hard that it is unable to be harmed by human weapons.
Her body movements are uncannily flexible. She can make numerous gymnastic, or martial arts implements with little effort using a combination of strength, balance, reflexes and speed. She can even swing, flip, bend and twist without failure due to their enhanced sense of balance and flexibility. In battle, she can swiftly dodge an attack without having to think how to move her body first. In general, only something that moves at vampire-speed can render a vampire unnoticed to the motion.
Her Venom cqn turn humans or kill animals.
If she drinks a bit of blood from a powered person she can assume their powers for a brief time (proportional to how much she drinks). If she were to kill a person by exsanguinating them totally she could, in theory, assume their powers permanently. But she doesn't want to kill anyone if she can help it, so this has not happened to date.
Governed as she is by the rules of the Twilight universe, the following applies:
Vampires are not known to be killed by human effort, are unharmed by sunlight, garlic, holy water, silver, any kind of stake or cross, and can enter homes without permission. Also, any kind of human weapon, including bullets, bounces off of them without any pain or harm done. The only known way to kill a vampire is to dismember his or her body and burn the remains before it can reconstruct itself. Thus their weakness is the strength of their own kind or something as strong, which cannot be copied by humans, and fire that consumes them. If a human were to succeed in lighting a vampire on fire, the vampire could simply take a quick high-speed bound to put it out. This is why it is necessary to rip a vampire's body to pieces before incinerating them into ashes, to prevent them from putting out the fire before it can do serious damage. It appeared that vampires could be destroyed by molten lava. A number of vampires fell into the deep fissure made by Benjamin and never came out of it; they were likely consumed by magma. Conceivably a vampire could be vaporized in a nuclear blast. Otherwise vampires are virtually indestructible. Couple this with the fact Hellsing tampered with her to make her a regenerator and...
All this said, it's pretty easy to get her out of your face if it's not a life-or-death ordeal. She will actively avoid anything she hates, such as:
- Overly Genki People
- Children (if noisy and playful or getting in her face)
- Excessively cute things
- Furs (the cosplayers)
- Furry Children
- Overly Genki Furry Children
"I'm a complainer, not a fighter."
Lyrica Hubert does not like to fight, and has evolved a goth-y style of "indifferent fighting" where she relies on her enhanced vampire senses to let her anticipate danger and calmly move out of the way, seemingly lazily. She also doesn't waste movement when/ if she needs to strike. The result is kind of a slow motion Tai-chi meets Neo bullet time fighting style.
- Despite her vampiric allure and charm, which draws people irresistibly to her, like any true introvert she just wants to be left alone and so she is perpetually aggravated.
- She states that if the HOTEL were an Isekai alternate universe and she was a Harem girl she'd be the "Yandere bisexual stalker" archetype.
- She used to LARP.
- She is a Reddit addict, and carefully adjusts the quality of her posts so she always has 666 karma.
- She bores easily.
- She is "allergic" to Furs and cute things.
- Because of her perfect night vision, in order to "enjoy" the "grim darkness of the night" she has to wear sunglasses when out at night to replicate the "deliciously suffocating feel of it."
