The last vampire in the world is a coward, too afraid to die. He remembers his one great love, and tries to feel human again.
Tomasc Ludverc is the last vampire in the world. He is as ancient as time and feels defeated by his infinite life. Tom remembers the love of his life, his wife Annie. Annie died of tuberculosis, and Tom promised to follow her into the afterlife. That was over 100 years ago.
Now, in modern times, Tom lives with the guilt of his broken promise, his own cowardice, and the looming tower of days in front of him. He longs for human contact, but he knows that he is a monster undeserving of it. To Tomasc the great thing about being human is that humans die. Humans are then challenged to do the most with their limited resource of days. This is the power of human greatness, something he aches for immensely.
