History

During the sixteenth century, Lord Andrew Bennett, an English nobleman, was transformed into a vampire following a bite from one of the undead. From the very beginning, he was determined not to become like the other vampires and abstained from human blood, taking instead the blood of animals. He did, however, bite one human, his lover Mary Seward, who wanted to be with him. However, she happily fell into the vampiric tradition, becoming one of the most powerful and evil vampires in the world and the founder of the Cult of the Blood Red Moon.

Bennett battled Seward for several centuries, an untiring antagonist to her plans. Over the years, some of the people who Bennett saved from her would join him in the battle, but they would inevitably die fighting Mary. Eventually, he and his sole surviving ally, Deborah Dancer, invented a serum which would strip Bennett of his vampiric limitations, in order to make him a more powerful force against Mary. However, although it had the desired effect, it also killed him as his internal organs collapsed under the strain. Mary was, however, defeated by Deborah, who she turned into a vampire, unaware that the young woman had also taken the serum.

Some time later, Andrew Bennett returned to life through unknown means. He became an agent of the Lords of Order, who wished to bring about the end of time, and arguably succeeded (temporarily), though he came to see the folly of their plan. He has since been a free agent, occassionally allying himself with others, but more likely to live and work alone.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Immortality: So long as vampires continue to consume blood, they will not age beyond the physical state they were in when they first became a vampire.
  • Invulnerability: Vampires are invulnerable to most forms of injury (certain exceptions apply). Bullets, blades and blunt objects do little to no damage to a vampire's body.
  • Regeneration: In addition to being virtually indestructible, whatever damage a vampire does in fact suffer can be healed through the consumption of human blood.
  • Superhuman Strength: A vampire's strength level is several times that of a normal human being and they are considered superhuman.
  • Superhuman Stamina: So long as they continue to consume human blood, a vampire can function tirelessly without rest or relaxation. However, a vampire's stamina wanes the closer it is to sunrise.
  • Transformation: Vampires often possess the ability to transform into a variety of creatures or effects such as bats, wolves, rats or even mist. While their physical attributes may fluctuate during such states, a vampire's mental acuity is the same as that when they are in their human shape. A vampire who transforms into an animal may also benefit from that particular animal's attributes including razor-sharp claws, fangs or the ability to fly.
  • Psychokinesis: Most vampires possess some form of psychokinesis. Some are clairvoyant, others can communicate telepathically, some possess mind control. Particularly powerful vampires can control the minds of several people at once
  • Vampirism: In addition to the various mental and physical benefits that vampires are heir to, they also possess the ability to turn others into vampires as well. Each new vampire is traditionally subservient to the one who "turned" them, but some strong-willed vampires have been known to rebel against their masters.
