    It's the year 2075 and the earth has become barren and unforgiving. A deadly virus was released in the early 21st century. A virus so deadly that it infected humans and vampires alike. The infected began showing symptoms of bloodletting and mental instability. Those who did not die began to turn into blood thirsty monsters. Pale chalk-like skin stretched oven emaciated bodies with no heart beats. Their eyes blank and unseeing, but their speed and agility heightened to dangerous levels. Their fingers and teeth become elongated and razor sharp and they are the creatures main killing tools. They have an extreme weakness to the sun and will burn-up if exposed to direct sunlight. They seek shelter during the day, usually in sewers or they will burrow into the earth. their sleep is lifeless during they day, bringing the term sleeping like the dead to a whole new meaning. They can only be killed by severe trauma to the body, like cutting of the dead or destroying the heart. If they do not find enough food they will slowly begin too deteriorate. This causes them to turn on themselves, clawing and chewing on their own limbs until they eventually fade into nothingness.

    They are the deadliest predators the world has ever seen, killing everything and anything with fresh blood flowing through it's veins. Those that do not die from the attack transform into the vile creatures themselves. Even animals show signs of the disease. They become erratic and incredibly aggressive, attacking everything till the point where they kill themselves.

    They few that are alive, live in cities controlled by vampires. The vampires over safety in return for one thing... blood. At first human refused to bow down to the vampires, but as the world slowly deteriorated they started to turn to the vampires. Humans have begun selling their blood for food and shelter, becoming cattle to the rulers of their cities.

    There are humans that live outside of the cities. They move around in large groups of 25 to 40 people. A large family that lives in constant fear. Te only thing that keeps them moving is the hope of sanctuary. Everyone has heard of the stories about a place without vampires and no disease. No one knows where is it or if it's true, but they still search for it. These families move at night and sleep during the day, much like the creatures and vampires themselves.

    It is a race against time. For the longer the family searches for Sanctuary the more of them die.

  4. Okay mine is done
  5. The past:
    Connor watched his father become infected with the virus over three years ago. His father killed his mother and brother one night, Connor has dedicated himself to killing these infected creatures and trying to help end all of this.

    With his years of training, Connor has become physically able to keep up with vampires and in some cases he is able to out perform them. He is driven by a hunger for revenge but also desperation.
  6. The surface:
    Connor is 20 years old, and usually wears black clothing. His eyes are a deep black matching the color his spirit has turned over time. Connor had a .45 pistol under his belt that he never goes anywhere without, a long Japanese sword, a short blade on his hip, and a pair of hidden wrist blades he keeps under the sleeves of his black pullover hoodie
  7. The heart:
    Over time, Connor's heart has been filled with hatred and the hunger for revenge. Though he has grown to be this way, he is also able to feel things that a normal person would. The normal side of him is a mere reminder of what he used to be and how far gone he is from his former self.

    Connor keeps an amulet around his neck at all times is an attempt to not lose himself completely. The amulet also serves as a reminder of what he fights for and the good that can come if he is successful
  8. The alliance:
    Connor has found himself teaming up with a group of vampires that he stumbled upon while searching for the vampire that was responsible for his father's infection.

    He has begun to feel like a part of them, but knows that he will always be different from them due to him being a human. This is a barrier that has kept him from reaching out to anyone except a select few of vampires within their group
