Detailed Story RecapEdit

Vampire LoreEdit

Fan FictionEdit



  • Lacroix: Because he's nothing, Nicholas: that's why he's going to die. And because we're nothing, Nicholas: that's why he's going to die slowly.

  • Lacroix: Nicholas, I hope that someday you will come to realize and appreciate the greater depths of satisfaction that can be found in killing. For the pleasure. For the sheer creativity of doing it.


Behind the ScenesEdit


The flashback scenes suggest LaCroix is considerably older than he was later revealed to be in A More Permanent Hell. His references to Oedipus may be an allusion to the kind of relationship his vampiric mother (Divia) wanted to have.
