Since the beginning the Primeval Vampires have been forbidden from turning humans into lesser beings like themselves. But as the stories I’ve been told goes – Lila, the favorite daughter of Lilith and Cain, had different plans.
But I need to go a little bit more into the depths of human religion to tell the story. Everyone knows the story of Cain and Able. Cain killed Able and was exiled. He ended up in the Land of Nod – or so the legend goes. He met Lilith and they beget half demon half human children – the Original Primeval Vampires. There were hundreds of them all of varing powers. The three eldest are the only ones relavent to the story – Davyn, Saetan and Aeron.
Shaetan married Kalli. They had their own children of which Ant is descended. Donatello their eldest son married and had his own children – Francesco and Brandon. Francesco donated blood that made Cari Giovanni – The Hound, Il Cane – Ant’s mother. Francesco is also the father of Antonion Giovanni – Ant’s father and namesake. See fun history lessons.
Shaetan however fell in love with Lila. Their children were the first to embrace humans as a vampire. Their laws were strict and any children of the dark made were destroyed by Aeron – the most fierce warrior of the vampires. She also happened to be the only unmarried of the eldest children and has none of her own.
The children of Lila and Shaetan were cursed by Lilith herself to roam the world as beasts. These were the first of the Therians or as we typically call them were creatures. The First therians were left in a monstrous human animal form that could not walk the day as they had been previously. The First were wild savage creatures and waged war upon the humans – leaving their victims to either die or turn into creatures like them infecting them with the Lycanthropy virus that makes them were creatures.
Lila was a finicky lover and she moved on to brighter and younger toys – finding a love in Brandon. Lila and Brandon and their children begin embracing new humans. Aeron is once again faced with killing the children but instead opts to kill the source of the problem first by killing Lila. She is successful but her efforts are rewarded with a swift death from Lilith. Brandon and his children continue to embrace the humans into their world.
Embraced Vampires grow weaker the farther from their original line they stem. They inherit only one power from the original line and eventually most vampires only have one unique ability of the original ten powers discussed before – creating ten distinct bloodlines.
Each bloodline has a single master from which all children come from. Killing a master vampire kills the weakest of its line but not necessarily all of them – it depends on the power of the vampire killed.
I’m not sure how much of this is truth, but it is the vampire lore told to me from the Keeper of Secrets of the Council of Vampires – none other than Il Cane herself.
