Many years had passed since Malachai had walked the Earth, his soul had slept in the darkness, oblivious of time or space. He last 'lived' five hundred years before, where he had ruled a land of peasants and serfs, no-one challenged him, no-one dare cross him. Malachai was a hybrid vampyre, half human, half vampyre, this combination had it's 'perks,' it gave Malachai the power of being able to walk in the daylight, although saying that he couldn't stand direct sunlight for too long, maybe half hour at the most, but he could walk in the shade. He was very tall, with black hair and a muscular body, his eyes were a very pale blue, almost translucent. Malachai's body was hidden in a secret chamber of an old, now derelict, mansion. A man, whose family had served Malachai in the years when he had lived, found an old book in a chest his had left after his death, it had details of where Malachai was hidden and how to awaken him. The man, his name was Jacob, decided it would be 'fun' to find the dreaded Malachai and raise him from the sleep that encumbered him.
