Dorina "Dory" Basarab is a dhampir (half human, half vampire). Dhampirs are reviled by vampires. Humans don't like them much better since dhampirs tend to go berserk, killing anyone within reach. Dory has been experimenting with drink, herbs, drug, and anything else she can get her hands on to control her rages -- including bleeding off the rage by killing demons and vampires. Working for the Vampire Senate to kill rogue vampires even earns her money while dampening her rages. You'd think after all this time they'd give her some respect -- guess that's too much to ask. But the least they could do would be to leave her alone. From official release/information:
