In 2020, while transferring a Rune to a laboratory in Geneva, one of the scientists studying the alien technology accidentally touched the stone with his injured finger exposing the Rune to human blood. It was not clear if the blood, that specific moment in time, both or none triggered the activation, but what was about to happen would change everything. All Runes across the globe entered a chain reaction and activated.
Nobody knew. Nobody felt it. But from Earth's orbit rays of green & red light were piercing through the vastness of space and then, it all just went off. All in a split second.
The Ancient Vampires started to awaken. 100 years had passed. They escaped their burial chambers and left to learn, adapt and fulfill the Runes' purpose.
