Disgusted ( and likely jealous) of Sang’s preposterous dong, Dornail tells him to cover up and he’ll share the secret of how Sang’s still here.

When you get bitten by a vampire it’s not like you magically just become evil. That soul pact you take that binds you to your sire.. it’s a transference of corruption. It eats away until eventually your humanity is gone and you’re just a vampire. The will that drives you is a vampire’s ‘soul’.

Sang however was already bound by Dragulia’s curse. His soul was destined to return for all time over and over (he was never going to break free of the cycle of reincarnation or ascend to any state of higher being).

But the vampiric curse binds your soul to that one body (for so long as it lasts).

These two curses combined create a conflict which is why Sang’s unable to die even via traditional vampiric means (sunlight, pierced hearts, etc).

What he more or less has is an immortal human soul.

And that’s precisely why the Invincible Mister Best Sword didn’t devour his soul. It was forged from the hearts of vampire gods to feast upon the souls of vampires—not humans.

BUT IF THAT’S TRUE –THERE’S SOMETHING SCARLET NEEDS TO KNOW! 

UP NEXT: THAT ONE THING…

COLORING NOTE: I fucked up on Sang’s word balloon last time. lol. It should be red. This has been fixed and will reappear corrected once your browser cache clears.
