Vampire Guardian Angels™ 
Rule of Blood (Issue 5)

About The Comic Book Series:

Lia Scott Price’s Vampire Guardian Angels is a creator-owned comic book series written and created by Horror Author Lia Scott Price. In the series, Guardian Angels from Heaven have become Vampires who kill people who pray for help to them, and both humans and “good” angels have to work to stop them.

What are Vampire Guardian Angels?

When you pray to guardian angels, do you know what they are? What if they were a vicious new breed and hybrid of serial killer, angel and vampire who target those who pray for help to them? Because they are tired of protecting us and want to put us out of our misery, by eating, and enslaving us. Don’t pray to them.

Plot Synopsis

In the fifth issue, Rule of Blood, a mysterious virus is killing Vampire Guardian Angels and Janos, their new Ruler, must find a cure. He sets up a "breeding program"  to repopulate his breed and provide virus-free humans for food. After the death of Leah and his unborn son,  Janos chooses Prince Jeromos Dracon, as his new heir, enraging Joseph, who also wants leadership. Jeromos kidnaps the author, Ms. Price, and plans to raise an army against Janos.  A resurrected Cameron makes one last attempt to save Joseph's life once again, and Joseph begins his quest to take over the leadership of the Vampire Guardian Angels.

The Story

Vampire Guardian Angels: Rule of Blood (Issue 5)

Back in Heaven, Joseph demands to see  Janos. Janos, surprised and concerned, angrily demands how Joseph got to heaven and Joseph  tells him about Gregory's death and about Cameron being like a father to him, and what Cameron did to Christina and that it was Cameron who but him, and that he wants revenge. Janos tells Joseph Cameron is their prisoner. Janos then orders  an infected human brought. He explains the plague and that Gregory had drank from an infected Earth Vampire. Because of his ties to Cameron, who Janos calls the killer of angels, Janos demands Joseph demonstrate his loyalty and to gain Janos's trust, Janos forces Joseph to drink from the infected man. Joseph at first hesitates, but does so, and Janos, pleased, reveals that the man is not infected after all.

Janos then orders only vampire guardian angels can breed with females who are believers and who pray because only the male humans are infected.  Then they can continue to have food and maintain their hold over the Earth Vampires. Chained human and vampire women are being held prisoner for Janos’s breeding program, to create more angels and an uninfected food source. Vampire Guardian Angels can produce only male offspring with human and vampire women due to their celestial powers. But the women must be believers in angels to be bred, which is why the Church must be involved to create more “believers”. Those uninfected women who are not chosen to breed become food. The male young will be harvested. Some will be killed off to create more angels who will ascend to Heaven with their own portals and turned into Vampire Guardian Angels. (The very young can be killed off by any angel since they are considered “innocents”.) Others, most likely the weak ones, will be fed to both Earth Vampires and Vampire Guardian Angels.

Joseph tells Jeromos that the problem is, they can only target healthy humans who pray to them, and most of the world has turned into different religions, and atheism is on the rise. Janos must find a way to force the humans to pray.

Janos says he will send both Joseph and  Jeromos to earth immediately along with several vampire guardian angels through the still-open portal of light created through Gregory's ascent to form an alliance with a militant branch of the Catholic church to frighten people into praying more, breeding more, and to use the churches to house the captive humans to feed to the Guardians, just like they did during the time of the inquisition. Joseph is reluctant to return to earth but tells himself he needs to get rid of  Jeromos first. Then he will use Jeromos's ascending spirit to get back into heaven.

Janos sees an opportunity forming as well. Vampire Guardian Angels being killed by the plague on Earth are ascending in balls of light, providing a chance for the Angels in Heaven to descend to Earth without burning. But he still needs to raise an army on Earth. Too many Angels are dying and the Vampire Guardian Angels need to regroup and repopulate before they can take over, and they need to get rid of the plague.

Jeromos secretly wants take over Janos's reign. He also wants to chose a new Queen, and a new legitimate heir. He is also suspicious of Joseph and does not want him to take over.  As a distraction, he sends Joseph to Detective Costa, who is dating the author Ms. Price, to find out more about the plague, and tells Joseph to tell Costa that Cameron sent him and that he needs his help. In the meantime, Jeromos quickly leaves the police station to raise an army through the Church, and kidnaps Ms. Price. Jeromos wants her because she is their "creator" who brought the Vampire Guardian Angels "to life" with her belief in the existence of them, which gave them a supernatural power and awakening, and also because her own blood supposedly holds power that rejuvenates them, which explains why she was able to make them come to life. Jeromos has  researched her background and found she does have royal blood, which makes her part of the prophecy (and hints that she may in fact be immortal). Jeromos plans to use Ms. Price to create his own new dynasty.

Costa tells Joseph that through his contact Catharina, the vampire Cameron saved from Gabriel, and who saved Joseph they learn that the earth vampires have found that healthy bodily fluids from a non-infected human will instantly heal them. To heal themselves, they must hang adult humans up on meat hooks and slice them open and shower in their blood, just like Janos's mother Elizabeth Bathory used to. Costa's  contact Catharina takes both Joseph and Costa to a warehouse in Long Beach, CA, where this is taking place.

Costa, Joseph, and Catharina are surprised by guards from the Church, led by Jeromos wearing a mysterious necklace that looks like a vial of blood mixed with gold, and who announces the guards as his holy army sent by powerful church leaders. Jeromos orders the guards to kill them.

But they are shielded by someone. It's Cameron, who escaped from Janos and Heaven and descended without the portal to save him and is now smoking and burning and transforming, with skin peeling off.

Jeromos attacks Joseph but Catharina saves him ones again, and dies. Joseph tries to burn Jeromos with his power of light but Jeromos disappears. Cameron, horribly burned, disappears again, presumably to go after Jeromos.

Now Jeromos and Joseph are enemies, fighting for leadership. Costa vows to rescue the author from Jeromos, and Joseph vows to find Jeromos, kill him, and use his ascending spirit to get back into Heaven and destroy Janos.
