* Played for tragedy in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''. When Evangeline was first turned into a vampire, she ended up slaughtering everyone in her castle in blind blood lust. When she finally came to, everyone was dead and her parent's blood was on her lips. This happened when she was ''ten'', and she's had to live with that guilt for over 600 years.
