The island of Growerth in northern Germany is home to Viscount Gerhardt von Waldstein, a vampire who rules the island as the Master of the Night. His accepting and merciful character has naturally attracted many nonhumans to the island in search of a place of call home. All sorts of colorful characters, from fellow vampires to witches, werewolves, and even Eldritch Abominations
, inhabit Waldstein Castle. Chief among its residents, however, are the viscount's family—his twin children Relic and Ferret.
Only a slight distance from the castle is the city of Rukram, whose mayor is a trash-talking Dhampyr
with a bone to pick against the viscount. Oh, there also seems to be a young woman with a taste for vampires' flesh, a shapeshifter
with a complex about his true form, and a Salaryman
with a knack for magic tricks.
And then there's the mysterious Organization
—a group of vampires plotting... something. No one quite knows what they're up to, not even the members themselves.
