Blood 2 starts off in the year 2028 in a dark city seemingly
trapped in time. Deteriorating Brownstones reach to the sky, crumbling from the
weight of time. Wires and pipes crisscross the sky, the only evidence of a
futuristic setting, they hold up the city like the strings of a marionette.
Caleb, Bloods ill-tempered anti-hero, has walked the Earth for nearly a
hundred years, trying to discover a way to resurrect the original three Chosen:
Ophelia, Gabriella, and Ishmael. United they can retake the Cabal by force and
help Caleb return to his former position of power as the Cabals supreme
leader, a position which he feels is rightfully his.
Blood 2 begins with a scene in which the final element Caleb
needs in order to bring back The Chosen is being held by the Cabal. Caleb
retrieves this last object and returns to an abandoned building where he
performs a dark ceremony to raise the other Chosen. The Chosen then form a
shaky alliance against the Cabal, which has already dispatched a small army to
deal with them. Meanwhile, something is warping the very fabric of reality,
turning humanity inside out, and threatening the very world The Chosen hope to
"Too stubborn to quit, too stupid to die."
This was how a Lieutenant of the Cabal once described Caleb, and he wasn't too
far off. Driven by his quick wits and the shear force of his vicious nature,
Calab has become an unstoppable force of malice and spraying bullets. Using his
good mix of speed and toughness along with his familiarity with a wide variety
of weapons, Caleb is the brawler, the kind of person who runs into a room guns
blazing, getting chewed up by everything the enemy can throw at him. But his
utterly ruthless style guarantees that when he enters a fight, no one gets out
alive. These traits have made him the recognized leader of the Chosen.
A cold and cunning woman, Ophelia is the
hand at work behind every situation. Those that join her find themselves
curiously doing what she wants whether they planned to or not, and those that
oppose her have a tendency to disappear. In a fight she is fast, quiet, and
versatile. Unable to take large amounts of punishment or carry the more
powerful weapons, she offsets this by using conventional firearms in
conjunction with dark magic to maximize her offensive and defensive
capabilities. No need to face dead-on what you can take out at 300 yards with a
Gabriella is the warrior in the truest
sense of the word. Born out of vengeance with a past steeped in war, ritual,
and tradition, Gabriella has been groomed for battle since she was a child. She
is the ultimate walking weapon. She lives for death, and thirsts for power.
Easily the strongest of the Chosen, she towers above even Caleb in size. She
has forsaken her practice in the dark arts due to the defensive nature that
magic sometimes takes. She relies on her incredible strength, endurance, and
heavy weaponry to get the job done. Her thick battle armor and heavy weapons
slow her down significantly, but she is invaluable to the Chosen as the anchor
in any heavy firefight.
A man of few words and violent, decisive
action, Ishmael's keen mind and emotionless personality make him a dangerous
man to cross. His command of the dark arts is greater than any of the other
Chosen, and he uses that power and knowledge to decimate anyone who opposes
him. His enemies die suddenly, and horrifically, usually having little or no
chance to fight back. Those that do find that Ishmael has the distinct ability
to counter almost any attack. If he has a weakness it is on his dependence on
his magic, which has caused many of his other skills to atrophy.
