I have to admit, my favorite party was recently. My son turned 9. He has some challenges so, when I did the party for his classroom at school I was so thrilled to see how much he’s learned to help. He wanted to pass out the goodie bags and help with napkins and juice. He’s learned to share. We’ve come so far and as a mom, that progress, especially in his final year of “single digits” — meant so much.
“I was blessed by the gods Hear and Ares. This was their gift to me. I am dead, but not dead. You see, when I became transformed into a Vampire, my heart stopped beating and it still does not beat. But I can do everything and so much more than any human with a heartbeat can. Wonderful. Is it not?” ~Xander
As the product of an oddly unusual experiment by the gods – they wanted to create the first vampire Xander exists. It wasn’t something he had asked for but none the less he reaped the rewards just the same. As the first of his kind, he’s no longer plagued by human limitations, especially pain. Hear and Ares may have created him to be the ultimate killing machine, but there is a learning curve for even him. While enjoying his newfound power, he kills without mercy, often simply for his own pleasure. His desire for pain at time, even surpasses his sexual needs. He was gifted with invincibility as well as impatience. As the years added up, he grew bored of his dominance over those in the society of war and the civilized. Humans are merely toys for him to play with and toss aside after he’s had his fill. He cares nothing for them other than the blood-thirst they sate. It can be a truly boring existence as he finds out.
Whether out of boredom or desperation, none know for sure Xander decides he must have a companion, but who is worthy of his immortal bite? Kings, warriors or merchants? This is part of Xander’s tale…come along for the ride as we journey with one of the greatest warriors of our time as he searches for more than mere existence. He may be a warrior like no other, one who felt no pain. In a single word: Indestructible.
