Well, half vampire for that matter. Vladimirs father Tomas Tod, a vampire, and Valdimirs mother Mellina Tod, a human, ran from all vampire kind together, so they could raise their half-human half-vampire child in peace. When the Elysian Council (a council of vampires) discovered this they were disgusted and outraged. Being involved with a human that was not your drudge or a simple meal was not allowed. Tomas was to be brought before the council and charged for his crimes. Sadly,before any of that could happen, Vladimirs parents died in a tragic event. Young Vladimir was assigned to live with a close family friend,Nelly. Now Vladimir is 13 and its time to face 8th grade heartbreaks, bullies, principals out to get him, and a certain substitute that seems to be out to reveal his secret. Henry McMillan is Vladimirs drudge. He’s been with Vlad as childhood friends as long as both of them can remember. Henry is frequently associated with the “cool” kids. Nelly Nelly is Vladimirs guardian. She works at a hospital and supplies Vlad with blood bags nearing their expiration date. Otis Otis Otis is Vladimirs substitute teacher who seems to be very well educated on vampires, werewolves, etc. Theme: Vampires!
