A quiet and polite biochemist.
Amir Okanue is an unaligned Nosferatu. He is a silent, reserved person, who prefers books to people and hides his emotions even in tough situations. On the other hand, he is not as logical as he wants to be, since he places far too much emphasis on his looks. Although usually timid and obedient, he can be quite stubborn at times, to great annoyance of some of his peers. However, his loyalty can be matched only by his patience, although his honesty is rather questionable.

He was born on 10 January, 1982 in Harlem, New York City, NY to an African-American father and a Sudanese mother of Arabic descent. In 1988 his family moved to Hartford, CT.
He left high-school in 2001 and the same year was accepted in Hardford University. His field of choice was Biochemistry. During the second year of his studies, his father died, which left a tremendous mark in his later adult life. He failed his course and took a gap year, a time he much needed to deal with the loss. His lab partner also failed that course, but Amir never got to know what happened to him afterwards.
In 2006 he started his MA studies, where he met Haruo Matsuda, who soon became his close friend. As they grew closer, Amir developed strong feeling towards Haruo, however he’d never expressed them openly.
He got the masters degree in Biochemistry in 2008 and decided to go for the PhD. However, he never finished his studies, as he god embraced in fall of 2010, at the beginning of his third year. A month later, he was sent to Hardford’s kiddie pool, among many other young kindred, four of whom he befriended and thus his new adventure began.
Amir’s mother was born in the Dinka tribe in South Sudan, however, she was taken to the North of Sudan by demand of her Arab grandfather. She was raised in a Muslim household, therefore her mother tongue is Arabic. She’s lived in the USA since she was 23 and her language is one of the few things that remind her of home, so she made sure that Amir spoke it from birth.
Although Amir’s father is Christian and his mother is Muslim, neither of the parents practice their faith actively, so they never imposed their religions on him. Not surprisingly, he grew up to be an atheist.
