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.
Why does this almost remind me of a vampiric "War and Peace"?
I love how you're doing this storyline, how Angela is trying to educate dear Bernadette about the nature of humanity as opposed to her current condition. Little does our favorite maid realize that her former lord would probably either become her prey, or put her down himself if needed.
When threatened with death, all people fight for life.
