Countess Olga

The early years of Countess Olga de Abasia’s life were happy, both for her
and her family. Olga belonged to a long line of Counts and Countesses that
dated back to the time of the Great Purge, during which the human Kingdoms
had jointly defeated all the magical, dark creatures that had inhabited the
face of the earth. /r It could be said that Countess Olga had it all:
power, a well positioned family, a great husband, money, land and above all
a great, almost supernatural beauty that grew in fame across all the
neighbouring lands. Everything was wonderful in Olga’s life but nobody
could have for-seen what Olga would eventually become. /r Years passed and
the Countess became pregnant with her first child. She was totally happy.
Her husband Esteban assumed all the administration and government tasks of
the small country, allowing her to rest. However, during the pregnancy Olga
suffered from minor haemorrhages and out of concern for her welfare,
Esteban sent for the doctors who confirmed their worst fears that Olga
suffered from Haemophilia, the disease of the kings. They recommended that
she rest, maintain a strict diet which would help her regain her strength
and refrain from any activity that may endanger her and her unborn child.
/r As Olga’s son grew inside her, she felt increasingly weak and gradually
stopped eating. The day came when the Countess was so weak that Esteban
decided it was time to take her to the capital of the Kingdom to be in the
care of the best doctors who lived there. The trip would be long and full
of dangers as there were still many predatory and dangerous creatures
living in the shadows along the route. /r The Count and Countess,
accompanied by a large escort, set off on their journey. After a few days a
great storm arose and they all took refuge in a cave in the Dark Mountains.
With the fatigue and stress of the trip, Olga went into labour and gave
birth to her son, Vlad, the future heir and ruler of their county.
Unfortunately, Olga suffered a great haemorrhage during the birth of her
child and died at the moment he was born. Her cries during the birth and
the subsequent cries of her new born son awakened a dark and dangerous
blood sucking creature sleeping in the dark shadows at the back of the
cave. A vampire, that once aroused, began to attack every living thing in
its sight. While the vampire was killing the soldiers one by one, Esteban
managed to pick up his son, escape from the cave and fled down the hill.
However during the descent the creature caught him and attacked him. As it
did, Vlad fell from his father’s arms and the vampire proceeded to kill
Esteban by slowly absorbing the blood from his body. Once he had feasted on
Esteban’s blood, the vampire returned to the cave whereupon seeing the
innate body of the countess he was transfixed by her beauty. So enchanted
was he by it, he sank his teeth into Olga’s neck and a few hours later Olga
rose from the dead and turned into a fearsome vampire. After knowing what
had happened while she was dead, Olga swore she would not rest until she
found her little Vlad, even if she had to destroy half the world to do it.
