Gothic, or “Goth” for short, is the real creature upon whom the vampire myth is based. Unlike mythical beings, however, Goth is very real, very bloodthirsty, and very dangerous.
Goth thrives on violence, basking in waves of violent energy the way some beings bask in the rays of the sun.
He feeds upon a woman one night in 1982, killing her, but is witnessed by her very young son. Goth, savoring an opportunity to indulge in a long-term foreplay to violence, taunts the child, returning to him year after year, feeding upon him a little at a time, tampering with his mind, manipulating his thoughts and passions, until the inevitable night when he plans to return and kill the man.
Goth is mentored by Scorn, a Necros craving a tribe, a community of such nightwalkers, and together they start a nightclub, catering to the goth and “vampire” kids who fetishize the Immortals, both fictional and not – not understanding how delicate is the balance of their lives as they play with this immortal fire.
