Since that time, a war has broken out. The Lycans were enslaved by the Vampires, used as slaves to be the guardians of their lairs during the daylight hours, but they revolted during the Middle Ages. Both sides have their own lair and chain of command.
Vampires have Death Dealers, vampire warriors charged to fight and kill the Lycan enemy. There are three vampire elders. Rules and tradition demand that two be at rest while one is awake; this arrangement calls for each elder to rule for one century followed by two centuries of sleep. They are Markus, Amelia and Viktor. Markus, being the first of his kind.
The Lycans also have their own way to fight. The first generation birthed from William was a monsterous breed. They could no longer become human and in turn were only beasts out of hunt and kill. However, the second generation was able to remain human and change at will. These beasts were a new Lycan who were formed by the one called Lucian.
But bonds have been broken and lies have been committed at a high price. The vampire leaders have held their own share of horrors along with the lycans. That only leaves one question... What will become of them? When will the war be over?
Many many decades have passed since the bloodlines have been crossed. A few halfbreed decending from Michael (born of the third son) have walked the plains. They seek to end the war that is still amongst their brothers. Very few vampires and lycans roam the world now, those that do are hiding in wait. Waiting for their bonds to be crossed once again.
Waiting to finally win the war and become the perfect species.
