Eva killed the mage who turned her into a vampire right? Well, no, he(?)’s not dead. He(?) experimented on Eva to research immortality/undying, but he him(?)self is “indestructible”/”unceasing”. This mage failed twenty years ago thanks to Ala Rubra, and was barely sealed again ten years ago, through the sacrifice of the hero Nagi (probably?). This mage is now sleeping beneath the World Tree.
Yes, it’s the bloody Lifemaker.
(Oh, and Kaede’s up.)
