The year was 1047 CE when this real Vampire wrote his name openly and proudly for all to see: "I, Father Vampire…" And who and what he was debunks everything we thought the Vampire to be. In fact… it reveals him to be the undeniable polar opposite. For rather than being the evil, crucifix-fearing, blood-drinking, reanimated corpse of our fiction-fueled imaginations, he was instead… a quite-mortal, highly educated, well-regarded, crucifix-wearing, fully ordained, Eastern Orthodox Christian Priest.
Where actual history about the Slavic Vampire is concerned… never has fact proved stranger or more fascinating than fiction. And all of it far more fantastical and fulfilling than anything found in any Gothic novel or Hollywood silver-screen portrayal.
So why haven't we known of this before? Because the Slavic accounts of the Vampire were reported and popularized here in the West during the prudish Victorian Age … and their most important historical evidences deliberately censored, as a result.
When the doctorate-level evidences are re-examined in their uncensored entirety, the hidden truth is undeniably revealed: Slavic Vampires were very real and possessed truly astounding "supernatural" traits and capacities – most especially their very real "Dark Gift" – worshiped by the Pagan Slavs and ardently adored by women for centuries if not millennia… before later being horribly and falsely demonized by Christianity, and all those possessing such superhuman capacity hunted down and slaughtered… as many as could be found.
All we now know of the Slavic Vampire might have forever remained an eternal mystery had not a real Slavic Vampire offered to let us scientifically document his very real "Dark" Gift in the laboratory. This unprecedented University study, conducted by a team of highly acclaimed, doctorate-level researchers, was then professionally published in a prestigious scientific journal and presented to the world. To this day, it remains the only study finally documenting the fabled Vampire's "physiologically impossible" "Dark" Gift… the same superhuman capacity that has always so enraptured and attracted women to them while also inciting such brutal demonization and violence from men – most especially Christian men – against them.
