Ahmose Ike is a Japanese-American vampire who was born in San Francisco on February 12, 1915. He was incarcerated in the Manzanar concentration camp along with other members of his family from March 1942 to New Year’s Day 1945, when he and fellow prisoner Ipatiy “Rhodie” Rhodes were rescued from the infirmary by Ulrich von Brandt and Samantha Zuniga.
At the time of his rescue, Ahmose had very little will to live. He had been both physically and sexually abused by several of the camp guards. The kindness of his benefactors helped Ahmose regain strength of both body and mind, and he asked Mistress Kali to turn him so that he could continue helping his new friends fight for justice for many years to come.
Ahmose is fascinated by Japanese culture. He is an expert in multiple Japanese martial arts systems and is an accomplished chef with both traditional and modern Japanese cuisine. He also enjoys participating in theatre and dance, both as a performer and a costume and set designer.
Ahmose has long enjoyed a congenial yet cheeky friendship with benefits with his long-time benefactor and companion, Ulrich von Brandt. When he becomes frustrated with Ulrich’s tendency to flamboyant flights of egomania, he is prone to referring to Ulrich as a bitter old queen. However, there is no question of Ahmose’s affection for and devotion to Ulrich. He would lay down his life for his oldest and dearest friend without a moment’s hesitation.
Ahmose never expected to find romantic love until the day that na├»ve and nerdy film and journalism student Bernard Jaskolski stepped out of a limousine and into his life. The pair have been inseparable ever since Halloween 2018. In fact, Ahmose is Bernie’s proud and besotted maker.
“Don’t make fun of me, Bernie, please. I know I’m the absolute worst boyfriend in the Universe. I love you so much, but I don’t know how to have a normal relationship, and I’ve spent so many years in the company of fucking aliens—literal fucking aliens—that I don’t know how to be around people.” –Ahmose Ike
