1810 England, the height of the Napoleonic wars. It was thought that humans walked the path of enlightenment leaving monsters and dark things behind. However, those monsters and night stalkers merely hide in the darkness, as a young maid, Bernadette, soon finds out.
No moral conundrums today. Just some info about the language: "Que vos esprits reposent en paix." = May your souls/spirits rest in peace.
I just know that someone is going to put that through a translator anf get 'may your minds rest in peace'. Esprit is a word whose meaning changes depending on the context, it can mean spirit, soul, mind or even sanity depending on the words used around it and the context.
And now for some vampire statistics for 3 frequent causes of final death:
#1 - Violence. Vampires are a very violent people, expecially with each other.
#2 - Suicide. Some people just can't handle the eternity and the blood sucking.
#3 - Cancer. Yep, cancer, they are still affected by it. Worst part is, it won't actually kill them until it reaches their brain.
that...that smile...he should not have such a thing after killing someone he was showing kindness and understanding toward...that's...that's just not right. It's scaring me...what could he be thinking?
Actually, in Google Translator, from French to English it says what you said. However, from French to my language it says something like: "it can rest in peace because of spirits" (the liquid sort).
That aside, I love your comic. I recently found it and started to read it (just got to the last page a few days ago).
You say vampires die because of cancer? For argument's sake though, isn't that impossible for a vampire who is supposed to heal any kind of injury? Shouldn't the vampire be able to heal the cancer cells as well?
@AzraelFiachra: What is your first language, if you don't mind my asking?
Cancer cells are normal cells that have all the information in them corrupted other than the 'reproduce' commands. It's not an injury or a disease in the typical sense. A vampire's healing abilities are simply a much stronger and faster version of ours. It still has the same limitations as ours when dealing with things like cancer, HIV and missing limbs.
What you said makes a lot more sense than a lot of the books I've read with vampires as main characters. It still seems ironic to have a chance at immortality but get cancer and die.
And my first language is Romanian, which is probably why the translation is funny (a lot of translations from one language to Romanian get so twisted you can't stop laughing).
