Hello, my name is Violet...

...and I was born into a world

you may not understand.

Coming up. Holding airspeed.

Echo altitude.

Forward and lateral drift.

Numbers falling fast from here.

On my mark.

Three, two, one, mark.

Time lock engaged.

Valves, primary and secondary--

Compositive pressure reached.

Five--

-Freeze!

-lt's a trap.

Stay where you are! Don't move!

The man's down. All clear, sir.

Touch nothing, obviously.

Do not leave the building.

Squadrons...

...initiate Area 1 4 procedures.

-Hemophages.

-No surprise.

Flat-space technology.

Dimension-compressing. Very rare.

lt's odd.

What was their exit strategy?

How'd they expect to transport

the blood out of here?

-Unless there was no exit strategy.

-Then what's the point?

What if they didn't come to take blood?

What if they came to infect it?

My God. Cross.

Poor bastard.

Yes, I was born into a world

you might not understand.

The trouble began when

an American weapons lab...

...discovered an obscure virus

in Eastern Europe...

...that had been around

for centuries.

They tried to modify it to create

faster and stronger soldiers.

Instead, they created a more

contagious form of the disease...

...a strain called HGV,

Hemoglophagic Virus.

And what do you know,

the disease got out.

And that's when

everything changed.

As previous ages

were defined by terrorism...

...this one was defined

by a fear of disease.

Because one of the side effects

of the disease was longer teeth...

...the media decided

to call it vampirism.

I guess it sold more papers.

The medical establishment took it

upon itself to protect its public.

At first, requiring victims to wear

identifying armbands.

Then rounding them up

in special camps and facilities.

Until finally, people just

stopped hearing from them.

The day the trouble began for me

was the day I learned I was pregnant.

Violet, my God.

The same day I lost my husband...

...my future, my life.

And I, too, disappeared deep inside

a faceless camp...

...subjected to the indignity of

a forced life of endless examination...

...dissection, experimentation.

Like others, the disease started to

progressively change me physically.

My eyesight was sharper.

My hearing, more acute.

Bones, stronger. Healing faster.

Life span, shorter. A lot shorter.

Twelve years, maximum,

infection to death.

Unlike others, I converted with only

a mild sensitivity to light.

Like others, however,

I required frequent transfusions...

...and it didn't help

that I was pregnant.

And, no, we weren't superhuman.

Though we were a lot faster and

a lot stronger than everyone else...

...we die just like everyone else.

And just like everyone else,

without help, we stayed dead.

And though I was resuscitated back

to life for further experimentation...

...the one I'd carried inside me

for nearly nine months, my baby...

...wasn't so lucky.

Those few still on the outside...

...embraced the slur bestowed

upon them, ''vampires''...

...formed a resistance...

...went underground...

...and began fighting back.

And so began...

...the Blood Wars.

And now, the leader of the militant,

medical establishment...

...running this phobic world...

...is Vice-Cardinal

Ferdinand Daxus.

-Vice-cardinal.

-As you know...

...our campaign against

the Hemophages...

...has been highly effective.

We've managed to eradicate

almost all of them.

But, sir, the few that are left

have proven incredibly determined.

Terrorist attacks are at their

highest level ever.

lt's not because they're determined.

lt's because they're desperate.
