Bio: Something far more evil than the Nosferatu crawled out of the newly excavated Rock Port and it’s name is simply Kindred, this being was seen engaged in mortal combat with the vampire known as Cain as it broke free into the surface of New Seattle; this being is basically unknown like the Nosferatu and estimated to be just as evil. Some are saying that this being is another true vampire not one that was infected but truly of the paranormal undead quality; this would be far fetched if it wasn’t being researched in London and the walking dead are commonly used by the Caribbean so the presence of a new species of paranormal beings is not out of the question. This brings to light the question of what else is lurking in the belly of the Old World and just waiting for some unsuspecting traveller to stumble upon them; this being is quite powerful in his crafts of magic and was last scene heading deep into the Bowery before transforming into a flock of bats and scattering to the four winds. Cain was in hoot pursuit of this being, and it seems that even within the world of the vampires their is a pecking order and even Cain wanted the being known a Kindred to no longer exist.
This being was scene leaving Old Rock Port shortly after the runner team the Harbingers and they appeared to be worse for where with the pirate known as the Dandy Man critically wounded with a bisected arm, while the rest seemed uninjured they where not without the signs of combat and battle. The most recent earthquakes have brought forth the old town of Rock Port that was lost during a massive earthquake that hit the region in 2015 and has been buried ever since. History might have forgotten Rock Port, but it’s inhabitants didn’t forget their burial and now it seems that we have two of these beasts lurking inside Seattle and we are all on the menu.
This being is to be considered quite powerful and very dangerous as it is an unknown paranormal species and it’s abilities and weakness are unknown; Hollywood has told us what traditional vampires are weak to but when it comes to Hollywood how much can you really trust. This being is a recent discovery and with the Nosferatu as well having been unearthed makes me wonder what is really going on down in the old catacombs within the city and what the Despicables are after, seeing they traverse these old ruins trying to breath life back into the Old World. Though do to the Harbingers being the team that would inevitably discover this new paranormal species; they will be getting the credit for this and will truly become part of history. Though it stills begs to question witch vampire is worse and witch one is the true threat or are both of them just as evil, paranormal scientist want to capture these beings for research and the law wants to bring them down for the danger they impose on the city.
We just can’t have beings of unknown power lurking within the shadows of Seattle for this city is the perfect lair for the undead seeing that it rarely gets any real sunlight during the morning hours; thanks to the smog, large building and expansive nature of the city itself. The being known as Kindred is loose in the city and according to witnesses this being can control hordes of the walking dead just in a different fashion than our voodoo neighbours to the south. As the horde poured out of Rock Port after Cain, the minimal sunlight would cause them to burst into flames and turn to ash. I have never heard of a zombie bursting into flames from the sunlight, yes most seek out darker regions do to discomfort like their vampire counterparts, but they can be in direct sunlight just fine; these desiccated corpses just simply burst into flames and where just ash in the wind.
The Kindred is another wild card and something that needs to be avoided at all costs, if anyone see’s this being please report it to the authorities seeing that it is a serious threat to each and everyone of us; this being is to be considered and treated as a vampire so handle with care for the Kindred is not your normal infected being and most likely will take roost somewhere within the cities more urbanised and forgotten regions. Kindred needs to handled with extreme care, this beast has powers that are unknown and his skills are as well unknown; though he was able to stand toe to toe with Cain and still escape what we thought was a being of true power and evil. Cain being alive proves one thing, you truly cant kill a vampire and even if turned to dust they can still regenerate and return to the world; keep this in mind when dealing with Kindred even if he appears to be dead, it could be a trap and lure into a false sense of security. Once again the great quakes that recently hit the city have unearthed parts of the city that should have stayed buried and forgotten, sometimes it’s best to let sleeping dogs lie and using Rock Port as the example: now we have to deal with to beings of true evil and unknown qualities, powers and skills.
Well the return of Kindred has the city quivering and the scientists are frantically trying to figure anything out about this being, the University of London has nothing to add to the already frantic researchers and people are now truly once again on the menu; the infected where bad enough but these beings could far worse and far more powerful, we know sunlight doesn’t affect them like Hollywood says and well thats it. This being needs to be avoided and the people need to be on the alert for this new paranormal species of Vampire. What else is lurking within the shadow that we don’t know about, well as more and more of the Old World becomes exposed it will be only a matter of time before we discover new and unknown species of paranormal beings, new meta species and other dangers that lurk below our feet and within the darkness of the night.
