A long time ago, the world was once without magic. It was a simple place; things were born, they lived and then they died. But when magic came, death didn’t necessarily mean you stayed dead.

A few years after magic first flooded into the Human realm, many kinds of death-defying curses evolved, making death just a beginning. Of course, there’s always a first of everything; the first Mage, the first Wizard, the first Warlock… But what about the first Vampire? Who created the Vampire curse? Such a damning curse defiled many forms of magic, burdening someone to walk the night alone forever, sucking the blood of the living to survive.

After the mighty dragon Letholdus was betrayed by the Humans, Lucious struggled to carry all of the power he had stolen, leading him to divide it between ten other people, creating the Elementals. Void magic grants an immortality that can only be taken away by the same kind of power. But he didn’t give this power to just anybody. He chose very carefully, finding people that he could use, manipulate and control.

One of these people was Alucard, a once happy man who had everything: a family, a home, a life. But he was different. Alucard was once a Warlord, betrayed by his own people, used as a scape-goat and framed for the murder of a king. His family was executed right before his very eyes, unable to do anything to help them. But he swore he would get revenge.

That was when the Vampire curse was created. Making a deal with one of the Dragon Gods, Janus, he was granted immortality so long as he drank the blood of the living. He later found that making Humans drink his blood transformed them into undead, just like him, but they could not walk in the sunlight. He used his curse to enact his revenge, killing everyone who had been involved in the conspiracy. But soon, he found out that he wasn’t the only one who had made a deal with one of the Dragons.

Alucard needed more power to defeat the creatures known as Werewolves, beasts who were cursed to take the form of a wolf every full moon. They protected the land in which the people who destroyed his life lived. And that was when Lucious came. After the disappearance of the dragons, he appeared, offering Alucard even greater strength, but with an even greater price: he would live alone forever, death unable to ever take him. Bent on his revenge, he agreed, accepting the power and becoming one of the ten Elementals.
