The Portraiteer: Intro
Vampires. An absurd concept really. Monsters trapped in mortality to terrorize bad little girls and boys in the deep shadows of the night. A fairy tale. Maybe a fairy tale, but ask yourself, in the dark hours of the morning when you drag yourself out of your scalding shower and prop yourself in front of the sink, what do you see in the mirror? a reflection? A projected image of your portrait? Have you ever gotten the feeling that isn't yourself staring you back in the eyes? Have you looked in the mirror and said to yourself, "That man isn't me." Vampires have a similar thought. Mirrors were invented to entirely reflect light, not absorb it like everything else in our universe; But the laws of this universe are not always followed. Deep in the core of the sun is an energy known as gamma radiation. If a large amount were to be released, we have no idea what would happen. Would the people of earth not even notice, or would the event leave nothing but our reflections?
