|“||Jack Force was more than she had ever dared wish for, and he was better than a dream or a fantasy because he was real. He was far from perfect, moody and distant at times, and burdened with sharp temper and an impulsiveness that was part of his dark nature. But she felt more love for him than she thought possible. He wasn't perfect, but he was perfect for her.||”|

Schuyler Van Alen is the main protagonist of the blue bloods series. Schuyler is the only daughter born to immortal mother, Allegra Van Alen (Gabrielle, the Uncorrupted) and mortal father, Stephen Chase, her mother’s only human familiar. The Van Alens were once one of the community’s wealthiest and most illustrious families, but fell on hard times when Allegra broke her blood bond to her brother Charles (Michael, Pure of Heart).
Schuyler was born premature, and as a baby was perpetually underweight. Her pediatrician noted that she did not speak until her fourth birthday, when she suddenly began using whole sentences. Her primary caretaker, Cordelia Van Alen, her maternal grandmother, refused to allow speech therapy, insisting that her granddaughter was perfectly capable of speaking and would do so when she was ready.
Schuyler has long blue black hair, pale skin, a heart shaped face, an up-turned nose, and blue eyes.
School reports from Duchesne indicate that Schuyler was a quiet and thoughtful child, socially awkward, and if not for her best friend and human Conduit, Oliver Hazard-Perry, would have been a complete outcast. She excelled in Language Arts and Applied Arts, and was once honored by the faculty for diligence in her studies. Schuyler Van Alen spends most of her time alone; she has a fondness for museums and long walks in Central Park.
Powers and Abilities Edit
According to medical records from the Committee physician, Dr. Patricia Hazard, Schuyler’s half-blood heritage means she has many powers that vampires her age do not, but also that her mixed blood makes her weaker and her Transformation to vampire unstable. Her immortality is in question due to her human progenitor. Schuyler Van Alen has shown most of the skills that are displayed along the Blue Bloods , while also having human skills too. Schulyer shows amazing feats of speed and strength throughout the series, as well as being able to use the spell . She is able to read minds and is also capable of influencing them, and in extreme cases , to control them. This is demonstrated when attacked by Dylan, and almost killed him using his mind. Schuyler is also able to recover from injuries and physical damage faster than most vampires , but the human side of his half- vampire combat , causing her to have occasional blackouts when not exposed to other Blue Bloods.
Allegra Van Alen : Mother Edit
Allegra succumbed to a self-imposed coma in 1995, three years following the birth of Schuyler, who was conceived from the illegal union with her husband/human familiar. While earlier reports indicated that Allegra lapsed into unconsciousness immediately following the birth of Schuyler, the Repository has concluded that the confusion on the dates of Allegra’s current long-term hospitalization stemmed from her lengthy stay at the maternity ward after the difficult birth of her child. Schuyler made it a habit to revisit her comatose mother in the hospital every Sunday.
