    Default Shadow Walkers (IC) (M) BlueMoon & Kiro Akira

    Rated M for anything up under the Rating.
    Spoiler: Vampire types 




    In the year 2025, a breakthrough in medicine allowed doctors to reverse the effects of major trauma with an engineered enzyme that promoted healing. With only a twenty-four hour life span, the enzyme caused rapid reconstruction of tissue, knitting fibers together, then leaving the body through the blood stream. It was a perfect innovation...at least until the enzyme mutated in the body of a victim that died shortly after the injection. It was then that the enzyme changed, attacking the dead cells and transforming the body into a vessel of destruction. With a insatiable craving for blood, the first infected spread its disease by consuming the blood of others and then transferring the enhanced enzyme via oral ingestion. Death caused the changes and the plague spread quickly as humans were drained of their life force.

    Now the world belongs to the Shadow Walkers, a vampire-like race of beings that have spread their blood-craving disease among the human population. An apocalyptic wasteland, the good ol' U.S.A. is nothing more than a hunting ground for the fanged beasts. Small populations of humans exist, but most serve the vamps...scouting for survivors, providing blood-collection bars, and protecting them during daylight hours. It's the only way to survive without being on the menu. But there are also underground resistance groups that still fight to destroy the abominations. It doesn't take much: removal of the head, destruction of the heart, or cremation by fire. But their numbers are increasing and the land is fouled by their stench. One queen holds them together with her hive mind--she is the first. She controls and communicates with the thinkers, the drones, and the beasts--all vampires but with varying levels of intelligence. The only ones she doesn't control are the hybrids, a rare form of human/vampire mix that were birthed from an infected human mother late in her pregnancy. It is time to bring the fight to the queen.

    Blake cringed at the light that beat down on him. His blood supply was low as it was and that had left him in a jam. The sun was bright and he was weakened in his state. But that didn't stop the blood stained on his blade. Just out of an old abandoned warehouse where Blake happened to stumble across. The people inside weren't to fond of his 'tainted' blood as they called it. Then again, not many people were. A lot of Shadow Walkers were never fond of a hybrid. One who could walk the days along with the nights. Those who could sleep if they wanted to. While to Blake it wasn't needed he simply took naps just so he could feel an ounce of humanity. And to pass time when he was bored with nothing to do.

    With a yawn Blake stretched and pulled his hood over his head moving forwards. The night would be upon him soon which meant he could feed if need be and he could easily move around without the restraints of the light. While his human blood pumped strong his poisoned blood still held dominance over his body.

    A few hours had gone by and Blake focused on the only place where he could get his taste for blood fulfilled. The Blood Collection Bar was the place where most Shadow walkers went. This one's particular name had been 'Dracula's Blood Bank.' To Blake he thought the name was stupid but he would never judge as he was going to the place as often as anyone else.

    As he stepped inside, the boy looked around his eyes narrowing as he cringed at the lighting in the room. It was different and they used an alternate lighting source mainly due to the florescent lights causing negative effects. Blake made his way to the counter and gave the man behind a nod. A human working the bar of course, on the left side of his neck, there was a puncture mark where he had been drained of blood a few times, yet kept just enough to live off of. "Don't care what kind any kind of blood will do." Blake spoke and waited until a pouch was tossed on the table in front of him.

    It was dusk when Raven entered the Drac Double B with her head down and her hood up. She observed the patrons through her long lashes, keeping her body language relaxed even though her adrenaline was starting to rev. The bar was filling up and she did not go unnoticed, thirsty eyes following her movements with desire. Pulling up to the counter, she snapped off her leather band and flashed her wrist with the donor brand.

    "Coming to donate?" the barkeep asked with a deep baritone.

    Raven nodded, feeling a shiver crawl her spine. She chanced a quick glance to the side at a man sitting close to her. Dark hair and light eyes...hands holding a sleeve of blood. Not a vamp..., she guessed, his presence not quite right. She didn't have time to observe him further as a door opened and she was admitted into the bowels of the establishment.

    Raven was not a coward, but the deep interior of the bar always made her cringe. Making her way down the stairway with her escort the smell of blood and fear overpowered her. The dank room below held humans like her--donators. So many of them were hungry, pathetic, and lost. She was not these things, but she had a purpose--information, names, places, and the small token of food that was given once the blood was taken. ...and perhaps she would take something for herself as well...a taste of tainted blood, either on her tongue or blade. Either way would please her. As she was led to a soiled bed to sit on, she looked at the desperate faces around her. She felt pity and disgust, but not for long, as her turn arrived quickly enough. She held out her arm and a needle was inserted, her A- blood filling the sleeve quickly. Up top, she could donate directly, allowing the parasites to feed on her blood right from the veins. She had only tried it once.

    As soon as she was done, Raven grabbed her token and left, taking the stairs two at a time in her rush to leave the basement. Once inside the bar proper, she paused, once again noticing the hybrid(?) She sat on the stool next to him and motioned to the bartender. A shot glass was set before her, only half full, the cold fluid scarlet and viscous. She stared openly at the man as she drank, her blue eyes appraising him with venomous intent.

    "You got a name...hybrid? Don't see too many of your type here. Even someone as lowly as me can see you're not wanted."

    Blake instantly took notice as a human entered into the Collection bar and shook his head as she made her way to 'donate' her blood to the cause of the creatures. It was a wild and stupid thing to do in his opinion. Of course some hybrids did it out of the sake of their tainted blood having a sweet taste to it but bitter at the same time. After finishing his blood packet he ordered another one and tossed some money towards the man. While it wasn't much in this time some people still craved money. He was sure it was greed from their 'human' lives and what not.

    Almost as quickly as the girl he took notice of had entered she left the back room and plopped down next to him speaking in what he thought was a rude comment. Yet he didn't care he knew he wasn't cared for by either side and that just made things much more fun. He could easily pass for both sides and he knew it. Walking through the wasteland during daylight hours without a care in the world, even moving through the desert at night. Both were fun to him. Turning to the female he laughed and shrugged. "That obvious is it? Should probably hide it better next time yea?" He grinned widely before setting down his packet of blood. "Names Blake, who might you be?"

    Raven stared at the man, her eyes narrowing at his laughter and careless attitude. It was not what she had expected. She had hoped for anger, disgust, and maybe even aggression. Something to help alleviate her inner turmoil. Perhaps even a good fight. She wasn't sure she could take him...probably would get her head knocked in...but the adrenaline surge was what she wanted. Even the vamp blood wasn't doing it for her tonight. She hated donating. It was a necessary evil, started when she needed the food for her group. The minimal protection the brand gave her was also an incentive. Now it served another purpose...information. There was always the off chance she would hear something of use while she sat in the bar. As long as she didn't interact with the local flavor, she was safe from real harm.

    With a huff, she turned away from the man that called himself Blake, twisting around in her stool to give him her back to stare at. Hybrids were an odd sort and could not be trusted. You never knew what you were getting. Some were more human, others vamp, and the mix was as unique as the person. This one obviously had a taste for blood, making him a danger to her kind. With her back still to him, Raven cleared her throat and pulled her red scarf tighter around her neck. "I'm a human, unlike you, and my name is of no importance. Enjoy your meal parasite."

    With her mind spoken, she rose from her stool and gave Blake another glance as she passed by him. She felt eyes upon her as she hurried through the entrance to the cool, dark night that awaited. She let out a held breath then smiled to herself. Idiot! What are you thinking? She knew she was baiting the vamps, perhaps even the hybrid, to follow her, but the night was still young and she wanted some entertainment. It wasn't about the kill...more about the pursuit...predator versus prey. The bar had been full of Thinkers, as least as far as she could tell, and they had a habit of playing with their food. ...and she was up for a game.

    Blake shrugged at her when she walked off laughing at what she had said. A parasite was the most common thing he was called. He'd been called much much worse in the past and could likely think of a few if he had tried hard enough. He sucked down the packet of blood and waited until the girl had made it out of the building.

    Just from the way she had acted, Blake was sure she was looking for trouble. And likely with her attitude and leaving at such a time of the night, she was going to get the trouble she seeked. But that wasn't for him to care for nor was it for him to let bother him. If the vampires wanted to kill her they'd do it. The room was filled with the blood thirsty beasts. Yet he couldn't let it happen. The girl may have just been in the wrong state of mind after having her blood drained, he'd seen some wild things after someone 'donated' themselves to the bar. One guy was stupid enough to try and stab a vampire with a broken bottle and expected it to work.

    Only moments after she had left, Blake made his move. Getting out of his seat and taking a step towards the door he felt his body speed up quickly. And within a mere second he was out the door before making his way towards her. "Yo little lady. I assume you're looking for someone to kill you. Is that it or are you just stupid?" He asked grinning widely at her. The clip to his blade was already unhitched so he would be ready to block and react to any blows she may give him.

    With a full moon to light her way, Raven had pushed her way through the underbrush that had grown around the back of the bar. Many years of neglect had allowed the plants to grow right up against the building, making the going rough, and she had not gone far before she heard the steps of someone, or thing, behind her. Blake, she thought as soon as he started to speak. She had spun around at the sound of his voice, but his approach had been quick...too quick. Once again she berated herself for her foolishness. She really must be off her game tonight...any many more mistakes and she would find herself dead.

    Her eyes drifted to his ready blade, then to his wolfish grin, with sharp canine teeth to boot. His words were meant to cut...but they only skimmed over her as she looked over his shoulder and froze. He wasn't alone...and while she might trick and outmaneuver one vamp, she wasn't going to evade three. "Stupid..." she muttered in answer to his question, "...definitely stupid..." She pulled her large blade free and took a step back, keeping her gaze locked on the three vamps coming their way. She wasn't sure if the hybrid was acting alone or was only the distraction, but the three advancing bloodsuckers definitely looked more menacing than him.

    "You always bring your dogs to the party?" she asked with a tremor in her voice. She had had past experiences with hybrids, the last one bringing a vamp right to her group's hideout. They had lost three members before they had been able to kill the vamp and traitor. They could not be trusted. Running was her only option now, but not towards the place she thought of as home. She knew this area well and had several hiding places, not to mention a few good areas for an ambush. If she could separate the killers she just might be able to take them out one at a time...the hybrid included. She swung her blade towards him in a sideways arcing manner, her arm fully outstretched. Not bothering to wait to see if the blade met flesh, she turned on her heel quickly and dashed further into the underbrush.

    Blake watched as she swung her blade and jumped back with his hands up in defense. "Woah lady. Wouldn't you much rather just take it rather then run. We're faster of course. And not really my dogs but yeah....You know?" He then motioned to the regular vampires behind him. Of course they had just simply saw her as food and wanted to toy with her, Blake knew the way they worked way to well. Thinkers enjoyed the chase much more then the actual meal. Or so he believed. "Stupid is the right word you know!" He shouted after her as he stood there waiting.

    As she had bolted the three waited one counting up to fifteen before they followed up behind her keeping their distance to let the woman tire herself out. Not much words were spoken other then the occasional tactics to catch her and corner her. The three quickly split their directions rather then following straight for her, one had adverted right while another left, the final one kept hot on her trail. Blake simply watched for a moment and took a step forwards before he himself was off as well.

    Taking long strides he kept his pace up quick, he aimed to be faster then the rest of them and catch the girl first. If he was first then he could easily protect her. While he wouldn't aim his motives so clearly at first just for the sake of having fun, he still wanted to be sure the girl lived tonight. He hated fighting with humans as he himself saw it as a completely unfair motive. They were so weak and squishy compared to a vampire. A hybrid even was no match for one if they were smart that is.

    Once he had passed the vampire group, the leader took notice of him giving him a look. Clearly he was telling Blake that the prey was theirs and not his. He only gave him a grin and waved as he darted to the right quickly. Here, he met up with the Thinker who had planned a right flank. While he himself noted this was a good tactic and would cut off the girl, it was something he had grown accustomed to in the art of catching a human. This gave him a much better insight on what the plan was. As the Thinker looked at Blake he only gave the man a wolfish smirk planting his right foot heavily on the ground. Dust flying from where his foot was planted. With this, he rotated his hip and let the momentum from his speed do the rest of the work.

    His right hand quickly came back as the vampire approached him, touching his blade he gripped and snatched it from the sheath. By this time, the vampire was just in range and barred it's fangs at Blake. It was too late as the vampire tried to reach his hands out to catch Blake's arm. The blade struck the side of the vampire's mouth and a ripping sound could be heard as the skin separated at the edge of the blade. Blood coated Blake's face as he pulled the blade through decapitating the vampire quickly giving it an extra push as he pushed the blade through the spinal cord. "One...." He said seeing the look in the creatures eyes holding a look of surprise.

    Blake completed his spin only to plant his left foot down and stop for a moment to notice the other two Thinkers were ignoring his action and still rushing the girl. "Damn, normally they stop and attack me." He said with a frown before picking his pace up again. By this time the group had closed a gap between them and the girl. This didn't seem good for him or her but he quickly caught them once again.

    He took no patience or fancy maneuvers for the next vampire, as the two had grown closer together. He quickly took his blade at his side and drove it up and across the arm and the skull of another vampire. A sickening crack was heard from the bones of his snapping with the force of his blade.

    The final one finally took notice of Blake's intentions and barred it's fangs at him focusing his movement and attacked Blake directly. With this attack, he could tell this one was much faster then the other two as it closed the gap between the two much faster then usual. The beast sunk it's teeth into Blake's shoulder causing him to shout in pain. "Fuck!" He said feeling the blood quickly ooze from his shoulder. The pain was excruciating and nearly unbearable. But he barred it and drove his blade into the creatures throat aiming right for the spine. As the connection was made a loud crack was heard before the snapping of the spinal cord was made, during this time the creature bit down harder and Blake only pushed the blade through severing the connection completely causing the body to drop as Blake made the final cut.

    As the body drop, he grasped the head and watched as the girl was still running off. He made his pace quick, blade in his right hand while the severed head was in his left being held by it's hair. He darted in front of the girl stopping only ten feet away holding the creatures head up. If she didn't stop her pace she'd clearly run into him but he didn't care either way. "Hey look! Dinner!" He shouted with a laugh.

    Raven managed to slide to a stop with only a few inches separating her from the crazed hybrid. She quickly backed up a few steps, her eyes darting to the dripping vamp head then to the man's face. She was panting heavily, but not to the point of struggling for breath. She'd only had another quarter mile to go before she would have come to a narrowing between two rock shelves--a perfect place to wait to ambush her followers. The hybrid had made that unnecessary--a fact that she had only noticed when he took out the final creature by removing its head. The three breaking apart to chase her was a new tactic, one she had not been expecting, and she was tired, her adrenaline keeping her alert as her breathing finally slowed. She stood her ground though, trying to appear brave and unconcerned.

    With Blake's laughter making her on edge, Raven kept her eyes locked to his, a scowl on her sweaty face. "What is it you want from me?" she asked. She did not have a weapon drawn and his exposed blade stayed her hand. He could have killed her at any time and trying to fight him now would be suicide. He obviously was faster and stronger than her, attributes from the vampire side of him no doubt. Her only chance against these creatures was surprise...or luck...if she was alone. She really must have given too much blood tonight, as she wasn't usually so reckless. She put up her hands, palms out, to show she wasn't going to fight. "If it's blood you want, you can have it. Whatever... Just let me go." Her mind raced with the possibilities...perhaps he enjoyed the chase just like the vamps and was looking for a blood meal, or maybe he wanted to fight to the death, or he could just be bored and she was his entertainment for the evening. Whatever it was, she was at his mercy, although she wouldn't go down easily.

    A thought coming to her, Raven knelt down and removed her pack, trying to keep an eye on him as she did so. She put her index finger up to signal him to wait as she opened the flap and reached inside, rummaging around for a few seconds. "Do you eat 'real' food? I mean stuff other than blood...cause I have some chocolate." It was something she was saving, but if it saved her life, it was worth the sacrifice. She held the bar wrapped in brown paper out to him. He had mentioned "dinner" and maybe that meant he was still hungry. It was worth a try. "I also have some crackers and dried fruit." She quirked her eyebrow up at him as she waited for his answer.

    Blake watched as she slowed to a stopping point and frowned as she didn't seem to happy to eat the head of a Vampire. "Awww so no head on a stick?" He said with a wild grin before tossing it to the side. "You're something else you know. Most humans would be attacking me in an attempt to 'save' themselves. Of course it ended horribly. Not saying that I killed all of them but hey, you try to kill me I atleast you know." He said with a shrug giving her a moment to let her mind race with multiple thoughts. The most he ever really did was break a leg.... Sometimes Two but that was if they were that stupid and persistent.

    After the girl questioned what he wanted from her he blinked and sheathed his blade. "Hey you're the idiot provoking demons who could off you in a moments notice. You're the one who wants death not me. I'm just here for the fun of shit. And hey you provided a fun chase and the chance for me to kill some stupid creatures." He responded only for her to follow up asking if he wanted more blood which had thrown him for a loop. "Hey if I drink anymore of your blood after you just donated your life away, then you'd be dead." He said with a shrug before taking a step towards her.

    When he did she knelt down and pulled a chocolate bar out asking if he ate 'real' food his eyes focused on the chocolate bar his mouth nearly watering. Blake couldn't remember the last time he had actually had chocolate. It was a while for sure. "Chocolate! Oh I love Chocolate!" He said and reached for it before pausing pulling his hand back. "Nah that's yours. Shit's hard to come by now adays. Enjoy the chocolate while you can. And do I eat real food? Of course! My favorite? Human arms! The beefy ones ar-" He paused and held up a finger. "Ohhhh! You mean like.... Not people. Of course I do. I am part human you know."

    After speaking Blake laughed and nodded. "Yea, I eat steak and shit too. Honestly? Never really eaten human either. Of course I've drank their blood but that's cause you know...." He said and poked his own teeth with his finger the fang puncturing his finger tip causing it to bleed slightly. "These fancy little teeth. But yea I do. As for crackers and Dried fruit? They still dry those things?" He questioned before shaking his head. "Sounds just as terrible as the fruit themselves. Nah I'll pass, if I eat anything my stomach wouldn't be too happy. Gotta wait a bit before I eat real food, blood is still flowing through my system and what not, gives me a tummy ache."

    Raven listened to the ramblings of the hybrid without comment, wondering if he might possibly be insane. There was no way she would have attacked him with his blade out and ready, not unless he had struck first. Only a fool would have done that. And his bragging about what would happen if she did go after him only reassured her that her decision to stay put and watch him was the right one. She had no desire to be rendered into multiple pieces.

    He made it quite plain with his explanation that his decision to join in the chase was merely for fun. He probably was a bit off--it couldn't be easy to deal with being a mix of human and vamp. Maybe he should consider just taking himself out so he wouldn't have to suffer through it--although she wasn't going to be the one to suggest that.

    As he continued talking, she really did not know how to interrupt his words. He seemed to be a contradiction in and of himself--saying one thing then refuting it in the next sentence. It took a lot of energy just listening to him. When he refused the chocolate despite the fact he seemed excited about it, she merely shrugged, mimicking his motions from just a second before.

    "Okay...I think. So, yes you eat food, but only meat, but not human meat, although you like to joke about it. Very funny...yep...indeed it is." She shook her head, rolling her eyes at the same time. "Since it seems you have no intention of drinking...or eating...me, I'll just be on my way and leave you to your ramblings. Seems you have a lot to work out with yourself." She took the candy bar and split it in half, putting a portion in front of him on the ground with the wrapper still clinging to it. "That's for you. Think of it as a thank you for the vampires. As for me, I am heading to a safe place for the rest of the night."

    She turned from him then, knowing it might be a risk to have her back to him. She would stay in a place not far from here, an abandoned basement. It was safe enough. There was no way she was heading home now. She had not gone far before she turned to him again and sighed. "Come with me if you like. I owe you that at least. I know you don't need any protection, but maybe some company is what you crave." She wasn't sure why she made the offer but she knew he could easily find her even if she had not invited him. She didn't trust the half breed, but maybe having the enemy close was safer than not knowing his whereabouts. "It's just for tonight though...afterwards you go your own way."
