With mankind it is no surprise that fights start from time to time. Whether it be over simple disagreements, land, even love and religion. Not everyone has the same view points and will agree. Throughout history this has been seen through the many wars, large and small, that have shaped humanity. The advancement in knowledge as well as technology has in many shapes and forms changed the world as well. But it was also one of humanities largest downfalls. In the year 2019, the entire world was at war, and though it wasn't fully acknowledge then, World War three was about to take place.
It was no surprise that after two years of war, the final straws were had and the leaders of the so called free world called in their weapons of mass destruction. And oh how the great world fell. How with all their great cities and technology, they couldn't save a vast number of themselves from being destroyed. Vampires alone seemed to be the ones to be able to save themselves from most of the destruction, and it is a wonder how some of the humans survived. It seems most likely that vampires had a hand in this, protecting their own source of food and life by caring for humans.
Twenty years it took before humans were able to move about the earth without worry of inhaling ash or any other noxious fumes. Not all areas of the world had been hit, yet it seemed everywhere most forms of technology or even cities and housing were utterly destroyed. Like nomads of the past, humans began their journey to rebuilding what they once had, though a majority of those who survived were young ones, ones who hadn't gained even a full education. It was in this time vampires played the largest role in shaping humanity. Unbeknown to the mortals, vampires began to help them from the shadow, Luc Sveta being the only house that could help them in broad daylight. Some humans even took to living near the houses of the vampire lords, not questioning how these places had survived the war, simply looking for safety.
Perhaps this also had a hand in causing strife among the vampire houses. The closer the humans were to them, the more likely their own kind was to survive. And the stronger the humans were, the more likely they were to survive. Humans knew that they needed a powerful lord to protect them, so the stronger a vampire proved themselves to be(without revealing what they were of course) the more likely they would go to this lord. More fights, vampires wishing to show how powerful they were, they needed their food source, and they knew the other houses wouldn't share..This served to widen the already great rift forming between the houses.
In time the number of mortals increased, and in even greater time they began to show a real chance of surviving what had befallen them. Though in the future this would become known as either the Dark Times, or The Time of Great Renewal. Vampires who had lived long enough began to see similarity in the times now to the times of the Middle Ages. Like the great empires that France and England used to be, so the humans were now. They were still primitive in technology, yet they were learning. And to this day they are still learning.
A little over one thousand years have passed, and yet history seems to be repeating itself in the way humans live. Noblemen and Aristocrats once more walk this earth(much to the pleasure of a certain head vampire), and times mirror the Age of Enlightenment(equivalent to 18th to 19th century here). Newer and newer technology have begun to come into play, and humanity is taking another turn, but just to where is unknown.
Unfortunately sickness has begun to sprout in the world of the vampire, killing many of the young ones, and some of the elders as well. What will the future for man and vampire kind hold? Utter destruction? Or a new time of renewal?
