A/N: Thought about this as I was watching the movie with a friend. The girl who played Sonja looks eerily like Selene, who I think looks a bit like Dawn…and did Lucian actually die in the first movie? They left it kinda open ended, if I recall. Now I’ll have to dig out my VHS copy of Underworld. Anywho, assume he doesn’t die in the end of the first movie, mmkay? Set in say 2005 (cause if I remember that’s when Evolution came out - they never said what year it was, did they?). It makes Dawn at least 19.

Leasing Out Life
Prologue: The Rise and The Fall of the Immortals

It began long ago with a plague that tore through a small Hungarian village, leaving one lone survivor: Alexander Corvinus. Something in him - in his blood - changed the very nature of the disease, making him the very first true immortal. This trait he passed down onto two of his seven children. One bitten by bat, one bitten by wolf, and one left to wander the weary road of mortals.

Marcus and William were the eldest of Alexander’s children, twin brothers cursed to be vampire and lycan. They were the most vicious and primordial of their kind, each remaining true to their very bestial beginnings. Marcus could pull back to his human form, while his brother was stuck forever as the beast.

Alexander washed his hands of his sons, in some futile effort to save the remaining family of his and to forever clean up after his sons messes. He was not alone, for there was still that child that was cursed with mortality. A mortality he protected fiercely, having already lost three of his children to William and Marcus’s thirsts and hungers: Magda, Alessa, and Vincent. He did not even have his grandchildren to comfort him in his grief. His youngest son Vincent’s pregnant young wife Marta had been dragged off by one of William’s beastly children, both lost to time.

And so it was that the curse of Corvinus became a reality. One son bitten by a bat to become father of all of the vampires. One son bitten by a wolf to become father to all of the lycans. And only one son left to wander the weary path of mortals.

Except he wasn’t so very alone. He had his twin sister by him through his whole life. Twins, Alexander’s only other pair to ever be born in his very long life. One set kept eternally apart, one set never to be parted.

Michael Corvin, the lycan-vampire hybrid, had come from Corvinus’s son. But the descendant of the forgotten daughter has just set foot in front of the one man who could use her blood just as he used her distant cousin’s blood. Only he doesn’t know it.
