Journal entry[]

Garkains are commonly described as lesser vampires. Do not be misled by this terminology, however, for they are extremely dangerous and devious creatures which men stand no chance of defeating, even when greatly outnumbering the beasts.
Garkains possess a highly developed sense of smell – once they are on your track, you are as good as dead.
They have a special taste for adolescents and children, hence the belief that this vampire seeks out only virgins. There is a grain of truth in that, yet it is not a matter of sexual purity, but of the level of blood pollution. The younger and healthier the victim, the tastier a tidbit it makes for a garkain.


The title contains an allusion to the Oliver Stone film "Natural Born Killers" based on a Quentin Tarantino screenplay.
