Les Vampires // Les Vampires OOC
Phaedra Romani, a 300 year old vampire hunting in New York City, has a vivid and disturbing dream one day when she lays down to rest.
Sheâ€™s walking through a cemetery in this dream, holding hands with a dark haired vampire with bright green eyesâ€”a vampire she knows is Louis from the famous Vampire Chronicles. They walk through the graveyard together, and as they move through it, the dead rise from their graves, grabbing and clawing at the pair. Some of these dead are vampires, vampires that were killed by Akasha or went into the fire. Some of the dead are the risen victims of the vampires, angry about how their lives were taken. A fence surrounding the cemetery has an inscription on it, which Phaedra reads. It works like a spell, causing the zombie-like creatures to disappear.
When she wakes up that night, Phaedra knows something is very wrong. But Phaedra doesnâ€™t know Louis, aside from what is said of him in the Chronicles, and has never met him. The dream bothers her. It wonâ€™t leave her alone.
Phaedra goes to New Orleans to seek Louis out and tell him about what happens every day when she sleeps. There, she also meets Lestat (among others), and the vampires discover that those they thought were deadâ€”others of their kind, killed or dead of their own willâ€”are alive again. And Mekare, who now holds all the power of their species, is nowhere to be found.
Mekare, the new mother of all vampiric kin, is pulled to New Orleans as Phaedra was--but with a completely different purpose. She is in the belief that Amel, the spirit that lives inside vampires and creates their bloodlust, has somehow escaped into the world and gone to New Orleans. She seeks the wayward spirit so that she may destroy him, and therefore destroy all of them; correcting a mistake that she believes should have been corrected millenia ago.
But it is not Amel that has pulled the gypsy vampire Phaedra, the Queen, and the others to Lestat's city. It's someone much more powerful than any of them could ever imagine. It's a demon looking to satisfy his taste for mayhem and settle old scores from the past--a past that Phaedra herself knows all too well. He is the one raising the long-dead vampires, and is intent on raising the first Queen herself: Akasha.
There is turmoil in New Orleans. The body count is going up, and the vampires are no longer the only immortal killers. Some vampires begin to band together, wanting to stand against the demon and the destruction he wishes to cause; others turn away from the savior's path, and then there are those that remain neutral.
It becomes not just a matter of alliances, but more of a desperate struggle to set things right again--before the demon has a chance to make them worse.
