Until the nineteenth century, scant information existed concerning the
ethereal species, known as Nosferatu, Vampire or the un-dead. These were
the earliest of times in which modern man battled a very ancient enemy.
Only distorted mythical accounts survived in East European and Celtic
folklore that gave any clue to the existence of humanity’s past battles
with the preternatural creatures. Sparse methodology remained of the
procedures employed to counter their attacks. This was the age of
discovery for those few brave individuals that dared to confront the
damned perpetrators of a hellish plague.
