An excerpt from The Chronicle of the Vampire
THE HISTORY OF THE FIRST: VYTALIS
It is said that the First was born, the thirteenth son of a thirteenth son. An omen for ill.
He grew much like any other child…until his thirteenth year.As his first thirst struck, the entirety of his village suffered. Word swept the land of that place’s decimation, of the monster spawned there, of his thirst for blood and his inhuman delight in carnage. Rumors spread that the Underworld had unleashed him. His birthplace was forgotten.
Years passed with no news. Eventually, however, new stories were heard, tales of creatures roaming the surrounding territories hungering for blood. They struck day and night, relentless in their quest. But nothing was heard of the First. Vytalis remained hidden, a creature of shadow, someone or something beyond the ken of mortal man.
