Arcueid Brunestud is known as something called a ‘True Ancestor,’ a powerful being with powers beyond belief. She is considered a princess of the ‘True Ancestors,’ and she is a vampire, but a very different one from the normal ones that people might be familiar with. For one, she has always existed as one, and also, she doesn’t necessarily need human blood to survive.
It soon became apparent that Arcueid was more powerful than the normal true ancestor and, therefore, trained as an anti-corrupted True Ancestor who took down offending True Ancestors. She also took out other demonic beings and was generally feared.
However, things took a nasty turn when Arcueid met the mage, Michael Roa Valdamjong, simply known as Roa. Roa, in his encounter with Arcueid, was able to trick the princess into drinking human blood, his blood. This made her go haywire, and she went on a rampage killing all the True Ancestors who raised her and made her who she is. When the massacre was done, she came back to her senses. Horrified by her actions, she retreated into her Millennium Castle and locked herself in. The Millenium Castle is not accessible to anybody since it is a Marble Phantasm only created by the most powerful beings.
Arcueid then kicks off a cycle of revenge in which she only leaves the Millenium Castle when she learns of Roa’s reincarnation to punish him and then returns to shutting herself in.
Roa is back again, this time in the body of SHIKI Tohno, who is related to the story’s protagonist, and Arcueid is out again to punish her eternal enemy with death before returning to her home.
Before meeting Tohno, Arcueid was a killing machine who didn’t have much of a personality and simply did her job, which was hunting down corrupted True Ancestors. Her powers make her a terrifying prospect as a foe. However, after a significant encounter with Tohno, a repressed part of her comes to the fore, which sees her act like a child. Her carefree spirit means that she doesn’t ‘sweat the small stuff’ and would just want to have a good time. She is introverted unless she is with Tohno, with whom she has formed a strong bond. That said, she is still a dangerous entity who can destroy her enemies with little to no effort.
Arcueid is a classic rushdown character in that she has insane corner carry and potential. She is also able to keep an opponent pinned down with great normals, fast movement, and good block strings. She also has a lot of health which makes her a glutton for punishment without giving up on her game plan. She doesn’t have many options with which to deal with zoners, but with her great neutral, a player can navigate around this, and once she gets in, she is almost impossible to throw off.
Arcueid looks unassuming and possesses the visage of a teenager despite the fact that she is almost a millennium old. She has short blond hair and red eyes. She typically wears simple clothing with a white turtleneck top, a mini skirt, and long, dark leggings paired with shin-high boots. She also wears a simple necklace around her neck. She does seem to be able to change clothes at will.
