I want to give a little insight into the Infinity - The Fallen story content.

ANTHROPOPHAGI - When writing I decided to look for a creature in mythology and lore that could stand toe to toe while fighting a Vampire. While searching I came across the Anthropophagi. This was one of the charter types that I greatly enjoyed molding into my own. Below is a synopsis of the information that I found prior to writing.
Anthropophagi: The name comes from the Greek word anthropophagos, which means “man-eating.” According to legend, Greek fisherman came across an island and found cannibals for the first time. They were disgusted by what they saw. They described them as hideous creatures lacking heads; they had eyes on their shoulders and mouths in their chests. In addition to consuming human flesh, they used bones for tools and skulls as drinking vessels.
I went on to write them as muscular creatures with shoulders so large it appears that their heads are in their chests. With the strength of 10 men, they can rip the limbs from Vampires with ease. Everything consumed by the creatures gives them more strength. I felt that this gave them a great chance to fight against Vampires. Check out the book to see how the fights will go!

VAMPIRES - Vampires are mythical creatures, typically held to be the re-animated corpses of human beings and said to drink human and/or animal blood, often having unnatural powers, heightened strength, and/or the ability to physically transform. Some cultures have myths of non-human vampires, such as demons or animals like bats, dogs, and spiders. Vampires are often described as having a variety of additional powers and character traits, extremely variable in different traditions.
Tales of the dead craving blood are ancient in nearly every culture around the world. Vampire-like spirits called the Lilu are mentioned in early Babylonian demonology. These female demons were said to roam during the hours of darkness, hunting and killing newborn babies and pregnant women. One of these demons, named Lilitu, was later adapted into Jewish demonology as Lilith, known as the mother of all vampires.
During the 18th century, there was a major vampire scare in Eastern Europe. Even government officials frequently were dragged into the hunting and staking of vampires. The word vampire only came into the English language in 1732 via an English translation of a German report of the much-publicized Arnold Paole vampire staking in Serbia. It all started with an outbreak of alleged vampire attacks in East Prussia in 1721 and in the Austro-Hungarian Empire from 1725 to 1734. Two famous cases involved Peter Plogojowitz] and Arnold Paole. As the story goes, Plogojowitz died at the age of 62, but came back a couple of times after his death asking his son for food. When the son refused, he was found dead the next day. Soon Plogojowitz returned and attacked some neighbors who died from loss of blood. In the other famous case, Arnold Paole, an ex-soldier turned farmer who had allegedly been attacked by a vampire years before, died while haying. After his death, people began to die, and it was believed by everyone that Paole had returned to prey on the neighbors. These two incidents were extremely well documented. Government officials examined the cases and the bodies, wrote them up in reports, and books were published afterwards of the Paole case and distributed around Europe. The controversy raged for a generation. The problem was exacerbated by rural epidemics of so-claimed vampire attacks, with locals digging up bodies. Many scholars said vampires did not exist, and attributed reports to premature burial, or rabies. Nonetheless, Dom Augustine Calmet, a well-respected French theologian and scholar, put together a carefully thought out treatise in 1746 in which he claimed vampires did exist. This had considerable influence on other scholars at the time. Eventually, Empress Maria Theresa of Austria sent her personal physician to investigate. He concluded that vampires do not exist, and the Empress passed laws prohibiting the opening of graves and desecration of bodies. This was the end of the vampire epidemics. By then, though, many knew about vampires, and soon authors would adopt and adapt the concept of vampire, making it known to the general public.
Belief in vampires persists across the globe. During late 2002 and early 2003, hysteria about alleged attacks of vampires swept through the Africa in the country of Malawi. Mobs stoned one individual to death and attacked at least four others, including Governor Eric Chiwaya, due to a belief that the government was colluding with vampires. In Romania, several relatives of Toma Petre dug up his body, tore out his heart, burned the organ and drank its ashes in water in February of 2004, thinking that he had become a vampire. In January 2005, it was reported that an attacker had bitten a number of people in Birmingham, England, fueling concerns about a vampire roaming the streets. However, local police stated that no such crimes had been reported to them, and this case appears to be an urban legend.
I would like to thank monstropedia.org for the above information.
I do believe there is really no need to explain to anyone what a vampire is. Pop culture has made them probably the most well known and popular monsters to date. When I came up with my concept for how I wanted to write them, I wanted to do only one thing, revamp their origin. Growing up watching the old horror movies, I remember vampires were truly considered evil. They were considered the dammed or the children of Satan. Everyone is allowed their own interpretation to whatever they want to create. I do respect this concept with all of my heart. However, when I saw an advertisement for My Babysitter is a Vampire I laughed a lot!
If you check out my chapter titles, you will notice one chapter is Vlad. Bram Stoker had based his very well known story Dracula on Vlad the Impaler. Vlad the Impaler was born in 1431 and died in 1476. My story is set much further back. Vlad is the first vampire created in the Infinity series. I hope you enjoy my interpretation on the origins of vampires.

In a perfect world, good and evil must be in balance. In order to create a perfect world one’s self (i.e. ego) must be forgotten.  This is the simple basis of the Infinity Series.  –Glen Shipherd
