Joss created Buffy and friends, while J.K. Rowling created Harry and friends. I am neither of them, and have no claim on any of the characters in this story.Summary:
Remus Lupin gives a lecture on some bloodthirsty vampires.Word Count:
Remus Lupin watched as the third year Slytherins took their seats. Of all the houses, this was the one he usually had the hardest time relating to and of all the classes, this particular one was the most difficult. He knew many of these students were children of Death-Eaters and as such usually had similar ideals to their parents. Despite these problems though, he did his best to make the lessons as interesting to the students as possible, just incase one of the things he taught them would eventually save their lives.
He cleared his throat after everyone was in the classroom. “Good morning.” He said with a slight smile as he opened his tattered briefcase.
“Can you believe they allow such a ratty old man in as a teacher, he can’t even charm his robes to look decent.” Draco Malfoy whispered to Crabbe and Goyle.
Had Remus been normal he wouldn’t have heard it but as a werewolf, he easily picked up the insult. “Ten points from Slytherin for disrespectful comments, Mr. Malfoy.”
Since the first day of class Draco would usually insult him. It had become a ritual of sorts. At first the young Slytherin didn’t try to hide it but after numerous point deductions and detentions, the boy would try to do it without getting caught, and almost always the poor boy failed. It shamed Remus to think that in a way young Malfoy acted much the way the marauders did in school.
As he pulled out the tools he’d need for this lesson, he looked over the class. Thankfully, they seemed to be playing attention—a bit upset about the point loss but attentive.
“This week we’ve been talking about vampires… today we are going to be talking about a particularly vicious Nest bloodline. This bloodline consists of various members such as The Master leader of the Order of Aurelius and The Scourge of Europe.” He said
“The founder of the bloodline, The Master is presumed to be Henrich Joseph Nest. The year of his turning is unknown although it is commonly held that The Master is one of the oldest vampires that still live. Very little is known about him… there is evidence that he is one of the few vampires, capable of mind control—other vampires known to possess this include, Dracula, and Drusilla, who is the Master’s Great-grandchilde. Location spells show that he is currently trapped within the hellmouth although there is a prophecy that indicates that he may be freed. It reads ‘And there will be a time of crisis, of worlds hanging in the balance. And in this time shall come the Anointed, the Master's great warrior... The Five will die, and from their ashes the Anointed shall rise. The Brethren of Aurelius shall meet him and usher him to his immortal destiny. ...the Slayer will not know him, will not stop him, and he will lead her into hell.”
“The Master’s most well known Childe, was Darla. Darla was turned in the early sixteen hundreds. Darla’s real name is unknown, Darla was what The Master called her, and it means ‘Dear One.’ Darla is also a member of the Order of Aurelius although she broke away when her childe, Angelus was forbidden from joining the Order. She became a founding member of The Scourge of Europe, which is also referred as to as the Whirlwind.”
“Angelus, the vampire with the Angelic face, is arguably the most vicious and bloodthirsty vampire around. As a mortal he was known as Liam O’Connor, and he was turned in 1756. Immediately after rising from the grave, he slaughtered his entire village. He and his sire made their way through Europe and North Africa, killing many as well as taking delight in tormenting vampire hunter Daniel Holtz. When they returned to England, Angelus became obsessed with Drusilla, who became his childe. Angelus drove Drusilla, who was a seer, insane, and turned her the day she was supposed to take her vows in a convent in Prague.”
“In 1898, he killed a Roma girl--a member of the Kalderash Clan, who were purebred wizards. In retaliation, the Clan attempted to curse him with a soul. It is unknown if the curse actually took hold, although sightings of him have faded. The Scourge, killed the Clan in retaliation.”
“Drusilla was Angelus’s Insane Childe. As I have already mentioned she is one of the only Vampires capable of hypnotizing victims and she was a seer. Many speculate that she was a witch, but because of the age she was born in, she was not identified. She and Her Childe, Spike, were also members of the Scourge of Europe, however after the Kalderash curse, they broke away to be on their own.”
“The last member of the Scourge, Spike, is also quite unique. He is also known as William the Bloody, and as The Slayer of Slayers. He is known as one of the few vampires who have single-handedly killed two Vampire Slayers. Spike earned his name by torturing his victims with railroad spikes. Spike is utterly devoted to Drusilla, and the pair is known for their love of each other, which is unusual in soulless demons, such as vampires.”
After giving the class the vitals behind the vampires, he began to recite some of the tales of those vampires. After he finished regaling tales about the vampires he cleared his throat, breaking the spell that had fallen upon the classroom. “Your homework assignment, is to choose one of the vampires in this bloodline and write a foot long report upon any of the following topics: their current location and activities, the details of their human life or any connections they have had with wizards or magic during their life or unlife. Alternatively you could go into details of a vampire of this bloodline who was not discussed today.” There was some groaning from the class as they left.
