Name:
Sofia Silaghi.

Representative of:
Transylvania (Ardeal in Romanian)
She leans more towards representing the Romanian heritage, whilst her brother, Soma, represents more of the Hungarian heritage.

Gender:
Female.

Age:
Human: 19.
Historical: Over 2000 years old

Brief personality:
Sofia seems to be a soft and kind individual on the outside, but she's scary when she's mad. Since she has immense power as a royal vampire, only second to her brother Soma, she uses it when she feels it's necessary to make people obey. She's very power hungry, but she doesn't let people see that side of her. Though she's a brat deep down, she has no problem being kind to people to get what she wants. To be honest, she wants to be kind and have lots of friends, but she finds it hard to understand normal emotions. When she wants something, she does everything in her power to get it, so her lack of friends depresses her sometimes.

She loves to live extravagantly, and finds middle class life hard to stand. Though she wouldn't openly complain, she judges silently. She loves to drink wine and smooth liquor like rum.

When it comes to people she cares about, she can be rather possessive. She can sometimes be cruel if she feels it's necessary, so it's best to stay on her good side.

Brief physical description:
Sofia has blinding white hair and piercing red eyes. With pearly white teeth and fangs, she has a rather infectious smile. She always dresses extravagantly, wearing dresses and frills. Sometimes she likes to dress sexily, wearing a black dress that is skin tight, a slit coming up her thigh. She is a C cup and rather skinny, having an hourglass figure. She's 5'7 but she loves to wear heels.

Appearance:
 

Brief history:
In addition to its Hungarian and Romanian heritage, Transylvania retains traces of a Saxon (German) cultural tradition dating back to the arrival in the Middle Ages of a population of German speakers. Seven historically Saxon villages that feature well-preserved medieval fortified churches—Biertan, Câlnic, Dârjiu, Prejmer, Saschiz, Valea Viilor, and Viscri—were inscribed on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage sites between 1993 and 1999. The historic centre of Sighișoara, also a Saxon settlement, was inscribed in 1999 as well.

Having formed the nucleus of the Dacian (Getic) kingdom (flourished 1st century BCE–1st century CE) and the Roman province of Dacia (after 106 CE), Transylvania was overrun by a succession of barbarian tribes after the Roman legions withdrew about 270 CE. Thereafter the Romanized Dacian inhabitants either moved into the mountains and preserved their culture or migrated southward. The area then was repopulated by peoples from the Romanized lands south of the Danube River or from the Balkans. The Magyars (Hungarians) conquered the area at the end of the 9th century and firmly established their control over it in 1003 when their king Stephen I, according to legend, defeated the native prince Gyula. Administration was consolidated by the settlement, probably as frontier guards, of the Székely (Szeklers, a people akin to the Magyars) and the Saxons (Germans). The Magyars encouraged the political and economic development of the region. Despite the interruption caused by the Mongol invasion of 1241, Transylvania (while remaining part of the Hungarian kingdom) evolved during the following centuries into a distinctive autonomous unit, with its special voivode (governor), its united, although heterogenous, leadership (descended from Szekler, Saxon, and Magyar colonists), and its own constitution.

When the Turks decisively defeated Hungary at the Battle of Mohács (1526), Transylvania effectively became independent. Its voivode John (János Zápolya), who was elected king of Hungary (November 1526), engaged Transylvania in a 12-year war against Ferdinand I, the Habsburg claimant to the Hungarian throne. Afterward Hungary was divided between the Habsburgs and the Turks, and Transylvania was transformed into an autonomous principality that was subject to Turkish suzerainty (1566).

During the next century Transylvania—ruled by the Báthory dynasty (1570–1613, with interruptions), István Bocskay (reigned 1605–06), Gábor Bethlen (reigned 1613–29), and György Rákóczi I (reigned 1630–48)—played off the Turkish sultan against the Habsburg emperor to retain its independent status. It emerged from a series of internal religious struggles, accompanied by Habsburg intervention, as a power of international importance, a defender of Hungarian liberties against Habsburg encroachments, and a bulwark of Protestantism in eastern Europe.

During the reign (1648–60) of György Rákóczi II, the Turks, trying to curb Transylvania’s growing power, stripped it of its vital western territory and made the obedient Mihály Apafi its prince (1662). Shortly afterward the Turks were defeated before Vienna (1683). The Transylvanians, their land overrun by the troops of the Habsburg emperor, then recognized the suzerainty of the emperor Leopold I (1687); Transylvania was officially attached to Habsburg-controlled Hungary and subjected to the direct rule of the emperor’s governors. In 1699 the Turks conceded their loss of Transylvania (Treaty of Carlowitz); the anti-Habsburg elements within the principality submitted to the emperor in 1711 (Peace of Szatmár).

During the succeeding century the pressure of Roman Catholic and bureaucratic rule gradually undermined the distinctive character of Transylvania. A strong Magyar movement, overshadowing the declining influence of the Szekler and Saxon nobles, urged the abandonment of the principality’s separate administration and integration with Hungary. Consequently, during the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, the Magyars of Transylvania identified with the insurgents. The Romanian peasantry, which had been developing their own national consciousness and agitating for more extensive political and religious liberties, took a stand against the Magyars and swore allegiance to the Habsburgs. When the Habsburgs reasserted their control over Hungary, Transylvania was separated from Hungary and transformed into a Habsburg crown land, subject to strict absolutist rule. Subsequently it was reabsorbed into Hungary (1867).

When Austria-Hungary was defeated in World War I, the Romanians of Transylvania in late 1918 proclaimed the land united with Romania. In 1920 the Allies confirmed the union in the Treaty of Trianon. Hungary regained about two-fifths of Transylvania during World War II (Vienna Award; August 1940), but the entire region was ceded to Romania in 1947.

Religious affiliation:
Catholic.

Any special powers or abilities:
Since she is royalty, a princess, of all the vampires, she holds power over them. Though she is amazingly talented at magic, she isn't very strong physically. She isn't stronger than all the other vampires, but she does hold the power to make them do what she wants, despite never really using it.

Her teeth hold venoms that normal vampires do not have, and it's only passed down through royal blood.

This character's hexcode is #FF0000.
