Silver Bloods

T’is a very intersting and distressing topic that you have chosen tonight my children, but if you insist on having the knowledge then I will of course oblige you.

The term Silver Blood refers to a extremely rare blood condition that renders the person’s blood a silvery hue. This condition strikes children in the womb most often and has not been known to have any serious complications.

However, there is one very interesting side effect of this rare condition, the child affected is immune to Supernatural change. For example, if a Silver Blood is bitten by either a Werewolf or a Vampyre, he or she will not become what has bitten them. As well as this strange immunity, Silver Blood is highly toxic to these and other Supernatural beings.

Throughout the millenia, Silver Bloods have been known to form groups to hunt these Supernatural beings and have gone by many names. The first such groups went by the names Children of God, God’s Chosen, Biblical Heros, Fair Bloods, and the ever popular Silver Pool. However these groups were all peaceful by nature and when they killed they did so with mercy on their minds.

And now my children we come to the truly disconcering part of my teaching. I must forwarn you that not all of the Silver Blood groups are peaceful people, there is one such group that I have had the misfortune to watch grow and flourish. It makes one wish to weep when one examines all that they have accomplished. The group of which I speek call themselves the Legion of Blood.

The Legion was formed and founded in 1534 by its current leader, Naticius Johan. Naticius started to recruit young Silver Bloods to his cause in 1589, when it became apparent that the older members would not always follow him blindly. This group of hunters have one speciallity, Vampyres. It is a very cruel fate to be recruited by the Legion of Blood, as the trial that is set for the new recruits is one most brutal. Each new member is given a Vampyre to track down and seduce into drinking their poisonious blood. The Vampyre is then tied down and all of their main veins and arteries are sliced open draining all of their blood, which is collected by the new member and brought back to the Legion’s headquarters. The Vampyre is left to the mercy of the sun after all of his/ her blood has been collected.

This collected blood is then drunk by the assembled Legion members, Naticius is always the first to drink from the communal cup. Why do they drink the fallen Vampyres blood, you ask? The easiest explanation I can give you my children, is that when the blood of a Vampyre is ingested by a Silver Blood it gives them extended life, but as with many things this reward is not with out a price. You see my children, Vampyre blood is a very potent acid and will eat away the skin from the drinker’s face. It is for this reason that many Legion members wear full face death masks or long scarves arround their mouths.

There are not many children who are able to detere the Legion of Blood from recruiting them. But I have had the great pleasure of meeting such a child, she goes by the name of Ravenna Twlya Dragoon.

So until we meet again my children, may your lives be filled with peace and joy.
