Guinevere could not understand how she let her heart be stolen by a human. She was a vampiress, born in the dark and hating the light. Yet love pulsed through the lady of shadow's veins all the same. The young king, the exemplar of justice, the great Arthur. He who should have been her most loathed enemy had instead pulled at her heartstrings from first sight. Fully succumbing to her desires, she departed for his world.
Guinevere was the legendary Queen consort of King Arthur in the Arthurian Legend. In tales and folklore, she was said to have had a love affair with Arthur's chief knight Sir Lancelot. Guinevere and Lancelot's betrayal of Arthur was often considered as having led to the downfall of the kingdom. The Welsh form Gwenhwyfar, which seems to be cognate with the Irish name Findabair, can be translated as "The White Enchantress" or "The White Fay/Ghost", from Proto-Celtic Uindo "white, fair, holy" and seibara "magical being".
