Historians are hard pressed to determine the start date of the war between vampires and homo sapiens, but most agree, the war had waged for centuries. For the most part, vampires and homo sapiens co-existed; sometimes living in peace and other times in violence. Historians do agree the warfare accelerated once the sapiens realized that vampires were, in fact, real, as archeologists discovered grave yards, some less than a century old. Open hostilities began when a vampire nationalistic moment started demanding a homeland for vampires somewhere in the Carpathian Mountains consisting of parts of Romania, Ukraine, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia. Homo sapiens called the war a ‘rebellion’ while vampires called it a ‘genocide.’
Open hostiles waged for ten years with both sides committing atrocities and crimes against humanity. The turning point came when scientists confirmed vampire DNA and homo sapiens DNA were 99.6% the same, making vampires (homo vampire) a subspecies of the homo genus or cousins of homo sapiens like the extinct Neanderthals. Scientists concluded the vampires were a mutation that occurred some ten million years ago. That discovery was followed by a US Supreme Court ruling that vampires had the same legal rights under the Constitution and Bill of Rights as homo sapiens.
World opinion began to change toward seeking a peaceful accord with the vampires. Negotiations bogged down in London until the vampires agreed to give up their demand for a homeland in return for a general amnesty for both sides and a guarantee of human and civil rights worldwide. In 2040, the centuries old world war between vampires and homo sapiens officially ended with the signing of the London Peace Accords.
Most people hailed the Accords and the peace it provided. However, extreme militants on both sides vowed to continue the battle. A hate group of homo sapiens formed the Jägerregiment (Hunter Regiment) to hunt down and kill all vampires worldwide. Militant vampires formed a terrorist group called the Vampire Freedom Front dedicated to forming an independent country in the Carpathian Mountains. Their members were called Vampire Freedom Fighters. The two sides waged a terrorist campaign on each other, often killing innocent bystanders. In 2050, the FBI formed a task force as part of the anti-terrorist division to hunt down both extremists and prosecute them. Michael Castillo, a rookie FBI agent and a homo sapien, and Branko Renner, a former rebel vampire, are reluctant partners on the task force.
