Detective Biography

THE AWAKENING

I was born in Athens. That in itself is nothing remarkable you might say, except that it was over 2000 years ago.

If you choose to believe my tale I was born in the Golden age of Pericles, a child of the Athenian aristocracy. By the time I was 20 I had already graduated from the Naval Academy and was an officer fighting in the first Peloponnesian War.

Sparta was launching repeated invasions in Attica, while we were taking advantage of our naval supremacy to raid the coast of the Peloponnese. In one of these raids, in 428 BC, leading a group of 75 Soldiers, we were ambushed by the Spartans. We were all slaughtered.

I remember myself heavily bleeding and Fileas from Sparta approaching me.’ Not you ! Not you !’, …‘You will be eternally cursed to live ! to shout our glory!’,Fileas whispered, as he sunk his teeth into my neck, as he possessed me in a way that penetrated my soul far deeper than any carnal act I could have imagined


V SIDE ARISING


Years passed, but the Thirst drove me on. Anger, Jealousy, and even Self-Pity, became the morsels I fed myself after I had Drank. And when I had become something so dank and putrid that even Fileas would have turned and fled...

Guilt!

After all those years of feeding; all those years of believing all that was left was depravity...

Guilt!

All these innocent souls I fed with …all this blood lust !

So I sought an Answer

I went to see the Holy Man in Delhi. He wasn’t very happy to see me but he listened to me. He told me ‘there is a glimpse of light even in the deepest darkness! You belong to the darkness so you have to feed on it and the light will come!!!’

S SIDE ARISING

And so I have sought to remove the darkness around me ever since. Now I hunt it down for the mangy dog it is; I feed on it as it once fed on me. A Vampire Detective, I chase down the guilty, I stalk evil, I Feed on the corrupt. The Thirst is still with me perhaps that will always be so, but now when I Drink, occasionally I smile... a Vampiric Smile...
