Asher believed there should only be a small number of vampires living in the places he knew and liked. These vampires should be his family and a handful of others. He’d heard that a long time ago, in a place where the now non-existent town of Moonlight Falls was, there had been far too many vampires for being a vampire to have any significance at all as well as witches, werewolves, fairies, and a “zombie” infestation … It was all too much for Asher; despite being one, he wasn’t fond of occults and wouldn’t stand for that sort of nonsense and chaos near him.
Thus, something had to be done about the vampire called Ronen Parks who was living with his family in a modest home in the Strangerville area.
It was unlikely that Ronen had done anything heinous to anyone at all, but Asher didn’t care. Asher had rules: Ronen wasn’t related to Asher nor was he anyone special, so he couldn’t be vampire.
Asher traveled to Strangerville, where he asked Ronen to step outside. Curious and maybe feeling apprehensive, Ronen’s family followed.
Then, Asher informed Ronen that he had no right to be living here as a vampire. Understandably, Ronen felt alarmed by the grand master vampire’s threatening, but he wasn’t going to give up his status without a fight.
Predictably, there was a fight.
As expected, it didn’t go well for Ronen. He was defeated and transformed into a human.
Upset and feeling unjustly targeted, Ronen stomped his feet and screamed.
Asher seemingly didn’t care. He had wanted the entire transformation to happen cleanly and without his own emotions getting involved, because he thought that’d look cool… but … Ronen’s yelling annoyed him, so he yelled back.
As Asher wasn’t the best or even good at understanding others’ feelings, he told Ronen that he should be happy to be human like the rest of his family. Ronen wasn’t dead; he wasn’t even hurt; he was just human, so he should calm down. It wasn’t as if Asher was going to leave him with a memory of the traumatic encounter, either.
The grand master vampire promptly drained Ronen’s life spirit, erasing his memory, but leaving his life intact.
Ignoring the Parks’ family, Asher went in their home to use their computer because he’d already wasted a lot of time and had a conservation article he wished to finish before traveling home.
Meanwhile, Deli was at home oblivious to her father’s actions, practicing guitar and thinking about her upcoming birthday.
