"--Dark Mother, what is happening? Eternity passes. No idea how long I've been under. Feels like centuries. My head buzzes. Feels like insects in my skull. Worms of fire boring into my brain. And then I smell it."

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Having already fought past several vampires at the Carmilla biters club, Vampirella now faces her foe, Le Fanu. Le Fanu produces serpentine tentacles from her hand, which infects Vampirella with a poison that causes her to hallucinate.

In the hallucination, Vampirella finds herself back on Drakulon, fighting up against an alternate version of herself. The alternate Vampi chides her counterpart for hunting down her own kind. Vampirella eventually gains the upper hand on her doppelganger by slicing her throat open.

Vampirella shakes off the effects of the hallucination and frees herself. She fights back against Le Fanu and slices her hand off with her medallion. Le Fanu's bat-like vampire underlings fly in to attack Vampi, but she holds them off with Holy water grenades.

Vampi pursues Le Fanu into the main dance hall of the club where she grabs a partier named Sofia as a hostage. She threatens to kill her unless Vampirella backs off.
