* VilerNewVillain: Amelie's father Bishop. She's a ruthless vampire, but she's a WellIntentionedExtremist. Bishop by contrast is a ruthless sociopath far more prone to violence and bloodshed, who'd let vampires go extinct if it means he'd be on top. She's AffablyEvil, Bishop's [[FauxAffablyEvil politeness is fake]].

* VampireProcreationLimit: During the early years of vampires, vampire numbers almost overwhelmed the human population due to their ability to transform humans into vampires rapidly as well as the human population being smaller than it was today. In order to prevent the humans running out and hence endangering the vampire's food supply, it was agreed by the higher vampires of the time to remove the knowledge of how to create more vampires, simply by refusing to teach it. Over time, this knowledge became lost even to the elder vampires resulting in it only being available from two sources, these being the world's oldest vampire, Amelie as well as an ancient spell book where it was written down.
