Brief synopsis

In the realm of the Golden Empire, VAMPIRATES tells the story of six adolescent fantastical beings on their journey toward becoming emotion-agents at the legendary Academy E. In this secluded and remote castle KASSJA OF THE UNDERDARK, a vampire, and JORIS VAN HELLWAVE, a pirate, attempt to learn self-awareness and alien perception - no simple task when you’re burdened with thirst for revenge, self-destructive behaviour, split personality or just good old pressure coming from parents’ expectations. On top of that, the group discovers the true reason for their presence in this magical, haunted place.
