My name is Valtaine.
That's the way I am, through my skin, through my feelings, through mysticism and faith, through spiritualistic and materialistic needs, fascinated by the occult. The essence of a man and his love for the arts, nature,anything that is beautiful. That's the way I am, I'm an eclectic, eccentric and egocentric aesthete

"Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter’s night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away. But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. And when he dismissed her again, the old woman’s ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress. The prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart. And as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast and placed a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there."
