Synopsis: Ten years ago Hong Kong became a battleground for vampires and the ensuing carnage announced their presence to the world. Before then they lived in the shadows and worked hard to keep their existence a secret from only a handful of humans. The vampire society is divided by bloodlines with each possessing differing abilities and weaknesses. Strengths include telekinesis, pyrokinesis, energy manipulation, and a myriad of others. Weaknesses include allergies to silver, sunlight, and moving water (not all bloodlines share the same weaknesses). Vampires can glamour humans and other vampires through eye contact although the effect depends on the willpower of their subject. They gain strength and power as they age and the Old Bloods are particularly formidable (compared to New Bloods). Source Bloods are the most powerful vampires and said to be the source of all others.
|The threat of the Kowloon Children makes the vampires and humans join forces|
|Kowloon Children are torn apart by Jiro during the Kowloon Shock|
|Jiro, Kotaro and Mimiko spend time getting to know each other|
|Jiro has incredible powers including telekinesis, but|
aparently not fashion sense with that goody hat
|Jiro drinks Mimiko's blood - did she give it willingly?|
- Sei - an Old Blood with incredible powers. He was there during the Kowloon Shock and erected a force field to contain the Kowloon Children within Hong Kong. His current form is that of a young boy and he maintains a force field around the Special Zone preventing any Kowloon Children from entering (without an invitation). He respects Jiro and likes Kotaro
- Zelman - an Old Blood with immense pyrokinetic powers. His personality is very fickle and he doesn't hold strictly to traditions. He considers Jiro and Kotaro to be amusing when other vampires shun them
- Cain - an Old Blood with magical and animorphic abilities. He can transform into a strong wolf form (almost like a werewolf), but vehemently dislikes Jiro due to his age
- Cassa - a Kowloon Child and powerful Old Blood. Jiro and she used to be friends, but she betrayed him for the Kowloon bloodline. She expertly fights with a chain and sword. Her return to the Special Zone is considered catastrophic due to her power and the potential of an outbreak of Kowloon Children
|Cassa battles Jiro during the Kowloon Shock|
|Kotaro is separated from Jiro and runs into|
Zelman - is he friend or foe?
|Yafuri is one of the Kowloon Children with special skillz|
|Kotaro is one annoyingly cheerful little bugger|
|"This blade is made of silver and they call me the Silver Blade!"|
