Andsvarr: I — I understand you’re upset, but — I didn’t attack you directly, so —
Stanczia: Yes, you only bit a human. That’s legal. And I can’t react as self-defense, right?
Imri: . . . but I can. Any vampire who’s attacked by another vampire is legally entitled to fight back. In any way they feel like.
Lord Imri (Age: 32)
Stanczia: You’re also entitled to protection from your sire.
Imri: That’s right!
Fastný: . . . We’ll show ourselves out.
oh mygod lmao
…You have good taste in television, dear sir.
And now that Imri is a vampire and probably about to take Andsvarr’s place in the House of the Moon (assuming he had one), Lady Stanczia has a particularly legal-savvy person to help with this new vampire law they’re dealing with.
There’s a seniority requirement before you can get a seat in that House, so Imri won’t just get it handed to him. But he’ll have an eye on financial policy from now on, you can count on that.
its very charming that Imri basically wrote “goal: become vampire” in his life planner at like age 9 and never looked back
Rest in pieces, my dude.
Does it matter that he wasn’t a vampire at the time that he was attacked?
Do you think anyone will be willing to contradict Lady Stanczia about it once Andsvarr is dust?
Also, he’s not being attacked right now, so there’s no grounds for fighting back (and no need for protection), but no, I don’t think that matters to anyone.
Technically anyone who’s attacked by a vampire has the right to one-on-one retaliation. It’s just that if Imri was still a human at this point, his chances would be way lower (and Stanczia would have no grounds to intervene).
1: Imri becomes a peer by being a vampire?
2: “protection from your sire”: Is that ‘protection provided BY the sire’ or ‘My sire’s a brutish thug! HELP!’ ?
1: You mean the “Lord” part? No, he got that by becoming the betrothed of a Lady.
2: That’s “someone attacked me! Sire, protect me!”
Re: 1 – Ooh. Looking at panel 3, I kept thinking ‘Stanczia looks really, really happy’. I guess that a decision to marry Imri would do that to her 😀
Just out of curiosity, how does a vampire sire a new vampire? Surely it’s not just drinking their blood or Leif would have been turned when his was drunk.
If its anything like how Dracula does it, the sired has to consume some of the vampire’s blood in turn, or at least it has to be put into them. I think that could be how the boss writes it here anyway.
Wait….did get Imri’s hair slightly longer?
I was thinking the same thing
