An edited version of:
Hundreds of years ago the Paladin warrior Theox defeated one of the most infamous vampire lords of all time, Dracula.
Legend tells that their heated battle went on for days, and when the vampire realized he would not be able to defeat his foe he attempted to infect him with vampirism.
His efforts were in vain however as the Paladin possessed the unique ability to expel foreign contaminates from their bodies through sheer will, the vampiric venom being no exception.
Theox then dispatched his foe, and rejoiced in his conquest. Little did he know that due to Dracula's vast power Theox was unable to expel every last bit of the venom, what remained within him was the vampire's tendency for heightened aggression and love for battle.
This affliction cost Theox his position as commander of the Paladins, but he was allowed to remain in their group which was now under Seth's leadership.
Much later in modern times Theox would finally meet his demise at the hands of the story's main character Cain who rips a hole through Theox's chest.
Little do they know that because Theox's Nephilim soul no longer protected his body the remnants of Dracula's essence were free to spread and revive the Paladin's corpse, successfully reviving Dracula with a brand new body.
Dracula wastes no time and quickly heads to the Vampire Council to declare his intentions: The complete destruction of their ancient enemies The Paladin and their entire organization.
Cyrus (Another Vampire Lord and member of the Vampire Council) holds a particular grudge against Dracula as the two have been rivals for hundreds of years.
He is not surprised by Dracula's revival, rather he is surprised that it took so long for him to find a way to come back to life. Despite their differences he agrees that the time
to launch their assault against The Ragnarok Organization is now, seeing as how their military force has lost a lot of strength after their battle against Cain and his group.
They also plan to steal the experimental serum that The Ragnarok Organization has been working on in an attempt to transform Cain's Blood/DNA into a weapon to use against him.
