Tesla: The ancient ones …They were intelligent, gifted, powerful … until a bunch of church-folk decided that our race was impure … evil. And not only did they hunt them down, kill them off, but they turned our species into a cultural joke.
Helen: Ancient vampires were the Caesars, the Pharaohs of civilization. Humans were enslaved, they rose up with good reason. If the world knew the truth …
Tesla: Humans were conquered because we were smarter and stronger. And when vampires ruled the world, it was a golden age. Science, art, architecture all advanced. And after they killed them off, what happened?
Helen: The Dark Ages.
Tesla: And now people think that we're allergic to garlic and that we can turn into bats at will. It's beyond insulting.
