Quinley Blackthorne is a dhampir, a half vampire, born from a pregnant mother bitten by a vampire midwife during childbirth. Quinley’s mother, who was pregnant with twins at the time, died whilst in labor. When she rose from her grave as a vampire herself, she returned for her sons and attempted to steal them away. Quinley’s mother was married to a Holy Warrior who had sworn his life to Pharasma, and when he saw his now undead wife reaching into the cradle to steal away his sons, he made a vain attempt to kill the creature who bore the resemblance of his dead wife. However, the struggle saw the twin’s parents both seriously wounded, and as the night’s watch arrived, the newly made vampire whisked away into the night, but not before managing to take with her one of her sons – Quinley.
Quinley’s mother took it upon herself to raise the child on her own, resisting the temptation to take the child’s life. Luvick Siervage granted Quinley’s mother sanctuary among the vampire clans of Caliphas, and the boy grew up in the city’s Vampire Underground, whilst elsewhere, Nevan, Quinley’s twin brother, was raised under the guidance of Pharasmin priest who later instructed him in the ways of the Inquisition.
Quinley’s mother was one of the first vampires slain by Radvir, and the dhampir has charged himself with doing everything possible to find her killer. His investigations into his mother’s murder (and those of other slain vampires) have led only to dead ends, but he had heard rumors of increased activity by the Whispering Way in Caliphas. Knowing of the vampires’ historical enmity with the Whispering Way, Quinley tracked the cult’s activities to a secret hideout, only to find it abandoned.
