Chapter 1: BirthEdit

Chapter 2: Changing the WorldEdit
Archbisschop Guillaume sends out Dean Silva, Elizabeth Arye, and Pierre Baiyan as missionaries in order to spread the faith in God among heathen villages. While traveling through the forest, Dean has a dream about a peaceful village. Suddenly, it starts raining blood and Dean quickly wakes up. When they get out of the forest, they come across the village that appeared in Dean's dream. They settle there and Dean and Elizabeth try to convert the villagers to their faith. Pierre remains in his home and devotes all his time to alchemy research. Their attempts are not a succes and Dean tries to convert them by telling them that if they don't believe in God their souls will remain trapped in their dead bodies forever. This is much to Elizabeth's dismay.
Chapter 3: Breaking CommandmentEdit
The village is plagued by vampire attacks. The first victim is a young girl named Mary Fraise. Her corpse is found laying in bed with two teeth marks visible on her neck. When Dean and Elizabeth head to the house of the village chief they overhear a conversation between Mary's father, Ronto, and an old man named Emil Moron. Ronto accusses Emil of drinking his daughter's blood, much to the shock of Elizabeth. The village chief explains to them that the village has an old legend that says drinking blood results in immortatlity. Remembering this legend, Emil drank a little bit of Mary's blood, hoping that it would extend his life. Soon afterwards, Mary's body mysteriously disappears. Pierre urges the villagers to let themselves turn into vampires so that they all will have eternal life.
Chapter 4: IncinerationEdit
The second victim is Cil Vink. Her body is burned so that she won't come back as a vampire. During the cremation, the village elder tells him about Simon Belmont, a legendary vampire hunter who they worship as a god. He has a whip that turns a vampire, when stricken with it, to ash. It is said that he will appear when the village is in peril.
