VAMPIRE LORD RYDER
The Weryn Bloodline has the gift of shapeshifting. Taking on various animal forms has created a pack-like structure among these vampires, which is very different than the other Bloodlines. Who they take as fledglings are carefully chosen and approved by all of the Bloodline, not just a single vampire's whim. Now they are forced to "choose" who will be one of them. This has become a point of contention with the returning Vampire King Daemon who has ordered that all Bloodlines find their fledglings at the Ever Dark Academy. Ryder has been chosen to be the Weryn's representative by the king himself.
Ryder will go to the Academy but Weryn will choose no fledglings for his Bloodline. They will not be forced to change their ways no matter who is king...
