Blade Season 2 Story
The story of the series kicks off by following Krista Starr, who has just returned from military service in Iraq only to find out that his twin brother, Zack has been murdered in a mysterious way. She decided to investigate the whole case herself. After chasing leads and sorting out clues she discovered that Zack has been working for vampires as a “familiar”.
Familiars in the series are referred to as servants who serve the vampires and in exchange for their services, they will be granted eternal life by their ‘masters’. On her pursuit to reach the bottom of the case, Krista encounters Blade. She also encountered Marcas Van Sciver.
Marcus is revealed to Zack’s murderer. Marcus is a powerful vampire who happens to have a lot of capabilities and strength. He belonged to the ‘House of Chthon’, and also holds a high rank there. Marcus gets captivated by Krista. He decides that he will turn Krista into a vampire as well by injecting his blood into her. Blade then gets approached by Krista and he injects Krista with the serum he uses to control his own vampire instincts.
Blade then reveals that Zack was actually working for Blade and he was carrying out a sting operation for him. He then offers her a chance to avenge his deceased brother by bringing down Marcus and the House of Chthon. Though a bit reluctant, she agreed. Now the entire plot revolves around how Krista maintains her cover in the House of Chthon and simultaneously controls her vampire instincts at times which makes her show the predatory side of a vampire.
Marcus on the other hand is developing a vaccine that can make vampires immune to their traditional weaknesses such as sunlight, garlic, silver, etc. But it was only revealed later that his actual motive was to eradicate the ‘pure blood’, who are ruling the vampire class by a virus in a project called the Aurora Project, the virus will only affect the purebloods only and the turn blood vampires like Chase and Marcus who used to humans once won’t be affected. In the season finale, ge unleashes his weapon with the help of Blade.
