Gem Dragons are mythical beings from the sixth plane. They appear as human as possible with very attractive features with only strange color irises, that are unique to just them and offspring. However, they are capable of transforming into a giant beast that possess reptilian characteristics. The reason, they are referred to as Gem Dragons is simply because they look like dragons and the scales and claws, they have are various gems. They are greedy, hording riches as much as they can, but where they set up homes they are strangely not too secluded. They lure adventurers to their dungeons with their bodies and tales of untold wealth, because they are lustful as much as they are greedily. The Gem Dragon's diet is granite, iron, various other minerals and metals, leather, coal, and nowadays, plastic .
They capable of producing hot semi-liquid gems that solidify into harden gem for their scales and they shred their old scales by launching them at high speeds. Their hides are tough as gems and diamonds are quite difficult to break. Whatever they produce, the gems are always valuable and razor sharp. The way a Gem Dragon combats its of the few dragons that don't have a breath attack ( more spewing a semi liquid gem) to say, instead its uses its high speed scales and razor and hard body, claws and teeth to its advantage to kill predators. It also moves fast and flies, surprising to say since its body is made of gems and diamonds.
Since the Gem Dragon mates with other species, their offspring tend to possess their unusual irises and depending on the species they get certain other traits or causes certain specially unique traits.
Unfortunately other species like the succubi and incubi have taken notice of the Gem Dragon beings taking full advantage of their lustful ways. It didn't take the succubi and incubi long to enslave them due to their abilities. Most Gem dragons nowadays are either toys or body guards to the foul temptresses, forever damned to do their terrible bidding with no hope of freedom.
William Livingstone is a hybrid of a Gem Dragon and a Human.Personality -
William Livingstone has an adventurous spirit and always has a grin on his face. He has a calming effect on others as he doesn't have a very threatening presence to him nor does he act like he does. William is quite friendly, kind, and trusting to boot to strangers and when they actually earn his trust, he really is. He aids others if they need a helping hand, always with a warm hand shake and asks them if they need any assistance.
However, William is no push over and despite his friendly appearance and his optimism, he is very cautious and suspicious. He has no hesitation about putting holes into people's heads, stabbing in the back and front, or setting them ablaze with whatever is around. William can be quite protective to those who has earned his trust and very self-sacrificing if the case is needed. His mindset is that of an investigator, looking for the facts and motives, careful of what information he shares, and setting up traps to catch his would be enemies. If one hand is offered as a gesture of peace, then William's other hand is on his gun or whatever he can get his hands on.
As William presses on and moves forward, he does his best to not look back. Especially the life he had no choice to leave behind and the love ones he severed connects with so if he does turn to look the guilt and the sadness might engulf him. His thoughts must always be on his acts, either of entertainment or helpful or otherwise he will remind himself that no matter what he accomplishes it be the work of Jack Claus and not who really is as William Livingstone is suppose to be "dead".

Larry Gin of the New Vegas police, Vikki Delight aka Golden Judgement, and Henry Killinger, owner of the Wango Tango Dojo.

-Despite being a conjurer of tricks and with the magic in his blood finally awaken, William have become a different kind of conjurer as of late.

They are razor sharp cutting most things like butter and are difficult to break. He is also able to expel from his fingers, palms, toes, and feet, semi liquid gems that quickly form into gems at high speeds. William believes his new found ability is evolving and is currently looking for someone to teach him as figures he can't be the only one out there with bizarre powers. History -
The father was never present and the ten year old boy, William Livingstone finally stopped asking about him. He accepted that if he didn't want to be apart of life, then it was his lost. It also at this time that he discovered his love of stage magic and watching others smile at his performances. At age sixteen, William became an apprentice of the magician The World, Jane Magnus, a big name in the Las Vegas strip. Three years later, he was accepted by the Pacific Coast Association of Magicians, becoming a member of the Nevada chapter, The Tarots Cards, their seventeen member. Its there, he earned his stage name Crimson Star.
William Livingstone as Crimson Star, at age 22 finally got his big break and landed a job at a big casino "The Golden Gal" about to perform in one of the greatest stages of the world. It would of been the greatest event of his career. However, it was not to be as William watched a brutal murder committed by a local crime family, and had to be relocated by the witness protection program before his big performance. It gets worst that on the day they assigned him his new identity and career and were about to move him, the crime family catches up with him.
The local police find the wounded William Livingstone and two unconscious federal agents surrounded by dead bodies on highway 108, near by a turn upside down sedan. *As William reported, the criminals crashed their vehicle with their own and proceed to shoot them up. Since the federal agents assigned to protect him were unconscious at the time, William mentioned he killed a few of them to survive while waiting for the police he dialed. Around 2010, near July or August the crime family that attempted to kill William was bombed on the penthouse floor of the Golden Gal.
Its 2012, William Livingstone has discovered his one last chance to be the greatest magician that ever walked the earth, Cirque de La Nuit. He came across a flyer of the so called circus and after a brief discussion with his old mentor, she mentioned a lot of great things that perked his ears. And now he is on a quest to become their newest Magician.
* What William didn't say, is that in the face of death something awakened inside him. That something was his ability to produce gems and firing them at high speeds, which is why he lied and claimed he used one of the federal agent's guns to fight back. At first, Will thought he was going crazy, but the more he practice and used his strange power, the more it became realty to him.Theme -"Invincible"
