Vampire blood, yes sweetling, but this is something different. These are humans modified beyond recognition through applications of modified vampire genes. They are more demon than mortal, muscles swelled to grotesque proportions. They were created as occult warriors with advanced telepathic and psychokinetic abilities. They are killing machines with a purity that is not compromised by any nuance.
They are unfortunate throwbacks to the bioenergetics program of the Soviet 'occult KGB', the Red Hand, during the Cold War. Scientists vivisected vampiric captives, performing transplant surgery on human test subjects. This met with some success, but the resulting mutants were too violent to efficiently obey their psychic triggers. Rather than risk its own psionic operatives with the unpredictable blood frenzies of the super soldiers, the Red Hand brokered a compromise with the military. Cosmonaut dropouts, already intensively trained for precognitive powers, were forcibly enlisted and dosed on a cocktail of drugs and vampiric blood to serve as controllers.
Experimentation continued. The Soviet research program did succeed in creating vampire soldiers impervious to sunlight. But in the end, the super soldiers were deemed too difficult to wield. Without the constant influence of their controllers, the soldiers went berserk. The program was officially shut down. The facility was cleansed, as much as possible, and sealed.
And then came Mara, the vampire queen. She has broken the occult seals on those secret laboratories beneath the forest. You see, Mara had been the one to initiate those experiments, as commanded by Lilith. The program was supposed to be shut down, their lovely soldiers sealed away and saved until the day that Mara needed them. And now the super soldiers follow the commands of their pure-bred siblings…for the most part. They are difficult to control, even for Mara's brood.
