Los Lobos


Written by A. E. Wolf Based on WhiteWolf’s World of Darkness


Introduction

The elite Sabbat pack Los Lobos, “point of the Sword of Caine”, faces a new challenge. For that purpose they decide to embrace some individuals of mortal elite. The archeologist Dr. Catherine Leraux seeks for the truth in mythology. Moving to San Francisco, she is blessed with success. However, not in a way she had in mind. The scientist Prof. Dr. Marlow, director of a secret research institution below the deserts of Nevada, rarely leaves his laboratories. Unexpectedly, his aunt Anna in Germany dies. To arrange the funeral, he has to travel to San Fransciso, where her husband is burried. The hacker Carlos Javier Montoya works for several different groups of interest. One of his special clients is a mysterious person named Maximillian Schreck.

Synopsis

The three main characters belong to the world elite in their respective fields. All of them have devoted their entire lives to their work, from which they expect some kind of enlightenment. After they are turned into vampires, they find themselves at the very bottom of an entirely different world. Soon, each of them discovers that the secrets of secrets they had already unveiled are only the tip of the iceberg.

Once elite scientists, now they feel like children, discovering the world - the hidden world of vampires, interlaced with the known world of humans. They find themselves in an eternal and ancient war in which they are mere pawns. Immortality proves to be a difficult state of existence to maintain than one – who never believed in anything like that – might have thought. The young vampires have to fight enemies with inexplicable powers without and the hunger for blood within. They struggle to find a new purpose for their unlives and learn to deal with morality one way or another.

From many versions of the unsettling history of vampires and their philosophies, each of them strives to find the 'right' one to accomplish more than just surviving with both mind and body intact. But during all of their trials, this trio of individuals who couldn't be more different learns probably the most important lesson of their lives: the three lone wolves have to set their egos aside for the sake of the pack and eventually become friends, an extremely rare relationship among their blood-drinking kindred.
