"'It has been a thousand years since I came to this unlife, and already I grow weary of it.

I am the vampyre Michael. Demon-hunter, Death-bringer, Archangel of Death. The names the mortals have given me.

They think that I donít hear the names. To them I am but another long-dead saint. Someone to pay lip service to. They have no idea what goes on in the dark. In the alleyways, and in the dark corners of their peripheral vision. They attribute it to phenomenon. Occurrences explained with the ramble-tongue of science. Anything to keep up the illusion of the superiority of humanity. But it is all a lie.

For you see, their exists a pact between The Powers That Be. Demon-kind shall never walk the earth, and in return neither shall Angel-kind. But, Lucifer, as a being of ceaseless ambition, found a way around the Pact.

He took 7 mortals and twisted them into horrific mockeries of what they once were. Men and women no longer, they became known as the Progenitors: the ancestors of all vampire-kind.

Jehovah is no fool. He knew what Lucifer was doing. So he took three of his mightiest warriors. Two Archangels and an angelóMichael, Raphael, and Gabrielóand reformed them into completely different creatures. Thus began the lives of the first vampyres.'"
~Excerpt from Dialettica Del San Michael
By Giovanni Gannilani
October, 1503

The first half...
...really didn't inspire me and seemed to be fairly banal. But as I read on, I'm happy to say that I like this pact you speak of, regarding the angels and demons. If written sensibly and with a spark of originality, this could make for an intriguing saga. Let it take you where it will, I s'pose. Oh, and by the by, there are a couple of fragments in there, and there's some grammatical cleanup to be done, but all this is minor and not glaring. A decent introduction, methinks.

Titanic Claims
But miniscule horror. As if you got caught up in details. The vampire theme should have been portrayed deeper, artistically. The historical part at the end molded it into an essay-like material.

The third paragraph begs for the vampire's POV and a scary ministory.
Maybe a sequel will compensate all of the above and more.

The Meaning
As you will all find out, this is but a prologue to later chapters in a story that pits several factions off each other days before The Judgement--the divine action that preceeds Armageddon--reaches its completion.
