After Damien and Nicolette Vaughn married in 1979, they had dreamt of starting a family together and after years of trying to conceive, they began to lost all hope since it yielded no success. Doctors wrongly theorized that the young couple could never start a family of their own like they’d been wanting to but in reality, it was just going to take time and painful patience. Four years later, Nicole was running to her husband with a positive pregnancy test in hand, tears of joy streaming down her cheeks the excitement clear after so much heart ache and pain of being unable to conceive. It was the best day of their lives and on the evening of March 3rd, 1983, the couple welcomed their first born into the world who, after much consideration, they named Benjamin after his late grandfather who lost his life fighting for their very own country in the military.

The little boy was cherished by his entire family, his parents spoiling him all throughout his childhood since he was a blessing they had believed to be out of their reach. He had a life most people would die for with the love and devotion of both parents, the two supporting him in anything he wanted to do and denying him little if anything. However, his happy childhood would sadly come to an end as most things do, when he reached his teen years. His father left to join the army in order to follow in his own father’s footsteps following a family tradition though it broke Ben’s mother’s heart since his father had left a good and safe job. Basic training was short lived and instead of being put through the entire process thigs were rushed since the country was entering into a war and needed all the able bodied men they could get. With only simple basic training experience, Damien fought until a bullet flying his way would take his life short before his deployment was going to be over.

News of his father's death took quite the toll on Ben as well as the rest of his family. When the uniformed men came to the door with the news and a folded flag was the day that Ben became the man of the house and he was far from ready for that responsibility since he was just cresting into manhood. His mother mourned the death of her husband for months and there was nothing Ben seemed to be able to do in order to help or soothe the ache of her heart. She missed first birthdays Ben’s and her own and swore to do better, however when his graduation came and she was nowhere to be seen he realized exactly how far she had fallen, curling into herself and seeming to forget the world and her own son.

Things truly took a turn for the worst as his eighteenth birthday rolled around, after all according to his mom at this point he was a man and could care himself like one. Which was ironic since his parents had always taken care of everything for him and being an actual adult was an intense struggle. His mom started to stay out all night and return home as the sun began to rise. His mother worrying about nothing and acting in the way Ben should be instead of the much older woman with no coping mechanism. She’d stumble in and knock a few things down as she drunkenly made her way through the house, waking him from his deep slumber. He’d be forced to help her to bed and listen as she threw a series of insults his way, breaking his heart into two since she was the only parent he had left. He’d tuck her into bed and she’d be out cold within seconds. By the time lunchtime rolled around, she’d leave the house without uttering a single word to her son, repeating the night before all over again. The two living off of his father’s life insurance policy along with the money from the government due to his father dying in active duty. Unbeknownst to his mother he began setting money aside so she didn’t drink it all away since their landlord and friends were beginning to lose patience with her antics and in truth so was Ben.

Benjamin soon realized he’d lost his mother just by the way she spoke and looked at him as if he were the sole reason all their misfortune had occurred. Which was insane since Ben hadn’t wanted his father to leave anymore than his mother had but his father’s mind had been made up. It hurt him and when he couldn’t take the verbal abuse any longer, he took what he had saved and moved out. He’d already found a decent paying job months prior and with the money he’d saved up, he was able to rent a decent apartment of his own. Sometimes the hot water didn’t work and the carpet was pulling up but he didn’t care because he was away from his mother and on his own. As his two year lease was coming up Ben wasn’t sure he wanted to stay, his mother sometimes banging drunkenly on his door and disrupting himself and his neighbors which cause him to make a drastic decision.  Ben decided to enlist in the army like his father had and this time around, he’d gone through all the required training before things were made official. There had been times he wanted to give up and just go home but despite the yelling of his drill sergeant it was nothing compared to the words his mother spoke to him, so he kept pushing forward.

Fast forward a year into his service and there was still no contact between himself and his mother which was no real loss to Ben. Sure he wanted his mother to get better and move past his father’s death but he wouldn’t be her verbal punching bag in order to work out her issues. Benjamin was given the opportunity to be stationed out in a city called Evermore in Colorado which he’d gladly agreed to since he’d never been to Colorado and he didn’t mind cold weather. It would give him a fresh start away from the life he had been born into and away from the tragedy which had destroyed his mother. There was little that Ben knew about Evermore City other than it was going to be what he needed in his life and the idea of being stationed there for a few years actually made him happy since he was able to see more of the world even if it was just one very large and seemingly legendary city.

He lived on base with his fellow military members as well as the city general but they were all able to enjoy the amenities of the city which there were a lot of. The City General was an older man who reminded him so much of his father and the two soon grew close. Benjamin learned more from the General than he ever learned in basic training or any other training. At times when Ben would be down like his birthday or his father’s the General would do small things to remind him there was still good and bright things in life and to continue on. The past not being the end all be all unless you allowed it to and Ben appreciated that advice. Which was why Benjamin took the news of the generals death quite hard since it was like losing another father but he remembered what the General had told him and he refuse to allow this to break since, he would continue and do what the General excepted of him.

At times, he’d blame himself for not sticking by the man’s side when he was obviously going through things but the General had never been a man to be babied and often sent people away so he could breathe. Despite the General’s death still being fresh in everyone’s mind the position couldn’t stay opened for long since the city still needed someone to take up that mantle. Despite feeling like he was stepping into shoes far too large to fill, Ben took the position in order to honor his former General and friend. Ben had been ready for an uphill battle but despite the struggles of his youth, leadership came easy to him and those under him respected him because he took the position for the right reasons. In truth he could see Evermore becoming his home even after his time of enlistment.

The former General had told him of the supernatural before his death but not much had truly been explained and his first instinct had been to kill them for the protection of humanity. However once the Peace Treaty had been signed by all the faction he began to realized the error of that train of thought. He found that some species were harmless while others might be darker and dangerous but they held to the treaty which had been signed even if they didn’t believe in it. Benjamin’s sole focus became the safety and peace of the entire city, not only species above the other since each faction was what made Evermore City such a unique place. Everyone who came to Evermore often did so for the safety the city provided and that made them all equal and wanting the same thing.

He’d be lying if he said his job was easily in the beginning since it was a lot to understand and take on. However with the help of The Organization he began to learn and understand more taking his place on the Privy Council with other city officials. Instead of merely just having a seat and voice in the Council he’s chosen to work closely with The Organization and the projects they take on in order to protect the city. A stance both he and The Organization leader, Sariah Holloway, take very seriously and so fair their efforts have helped to make the city the safe place it is today along with making sure all stick to the treaty which was signed.

It is already a new day here which means it's 26th of December >_> But one can never be too late to give a Christmas present~ 

Contrary to other people's beliefs, yes I actually do like Christmas :P So here's a few stuff from me because I feel like you need gifts after so much happening to you (maybe I feel a bit sympathetic towards the circumstances laid on you >_> <_<)

An amethyst bracelet~ Enchanted of course. Amethyst purple because well, a purple dragon gave it to you. There's gotta be some level of significance there come on. 

They said itit's a wedding ring but it's really not >_> <_< Just something to keep you safe. One charm is not enough to dictate your life expectancy when it comes to danger.

Again, to keep you safe. Honestly, you're more prone to danger and injuries now more than ever :) Being the considerate person I am, here's something that will also look over your sanity ;)

Writing helps~ Or so I heard. It's not healthy to keep everything pent and bottled up. So here's a Merry Christmas from your favorite Ailward dragon.

Hello there! This is your friendly Grinch serving as your Secret Santa! 

Instead of stealing Christmas, I will be giving gifts. If the Grinch's heart can grow, why can't mine for this holiday season x). 

To start, here's some liquor which I'm sure living as a human in a supernatural world, at the end of the day a drink is needed. So have one or few on me! 

Second, here's cologne as you seem like the gentlemanly type. x) 

And lastly, here's a weapon as I'm sure living in this city is unpredictable and that's coming from a Diviner as myself. Plus, my Russian family always had a weapon on them but then again we were the definition of dysfunctional. 

Anyways, hope you enjoy your gifts and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year! 

From this Grinch, 

- Secret Santa
