The year is 2187, if the Gregorian calendar is to be referenced directly. In the year 2000, everything we knew and thought was nothing more than a mythical tale to scare us as children became as real to us as the horror we felt in our childhood hearts. Whether it was simply an opportune time for a revolution or some long forgotten timekeeping piece of evolution clicked into place, we were no longer the top of the food chain on the planet Earth. Spring forward one global war, several major conflicts and a series of attempts to parlay with the denizens of our nightmares made manifest finally brought a form of peace. Only now we had to better equip our own police forces and military, and even contract out to those who were willing to do what was necessary, and what was right.
During the war, Humanity had an ally behind enemy lines; he wasn’t quite a double agent, but he had been around long enough to be scarier than anything the vampiric brethren of Great House Dracul could manage to throw at us. And now? He’s hiring, evidently. He’s got one of the best networks of informants, spies, businessmen and military masterminds helping him scout the globe for men and women like him, who refuse to let anyone disrupt this tenuous peace between the races. And his name? Dacen, progenitor of the vampiric Great House Valu.
