This is a picture of a group of travellers in a war-torn world. The two on the right are men, and on the left, there are vampires. The boy in the center is a mixture of the two races, having a vampiric father, and a human mother. He was not bitten, and therefore doesn't have all vampiric powers, but he feels the urge to drink blood, and he has an aversion to strong light. He posesses only the strength of a man (vampire's have a strength ten times that of a man). These travellers are all going to peace talks which will be mediated by the boy. The Vampires of this world and the men have been fighting for centuries, but are at last ready to discuss peace. The boy's guard is for his protection from the radical extremists from both sides of the issue. His life has been threatened many times, but his guard of vampires and men have protected him well, and they'll continue to protect him untill he reaches the peace conference. They all, naturally, have mixed feelings about the boy, but the boy has earned their respect, and is beginning to forge a friendship with them all.
