Ok I had to read this one twice. There's a lot going one here, lots of new 'people'. Very action packed and interesting, would have looked great on TV, lol.
I admit, there's some stuff that depends on some of the GBWC stories, including at least one that I didn't write.
So basically what we have here is a vampire killing vampire,
Sergei/Anatole's backstory prior to 1991 is still nebulous, but what we know is this:
He's a mortal descendant of a medieval lord named Igor Vashnivski, who is also a vampire--and became Anatole's vampire sire at the end of "Shadow of the Inquisitors" Interestingly enough, werewolves mention the Vashnivski name in the very first scene of "Chronicles of Gozer" part 6.
Since becoming undead, Anatole's been bopping around the world. He was in Prague in 1998 ("Blood Feud: Prague") but, as is subtly confirmed in "Blood Feud LA", he made it to LA by 2007 ("Nights of Blood"). He and Kyle Stevens meet in that story, and it's hinted that they actually worked together for at least a short time during Stevens's hiatus from the GBWC in 2007-2008.
an evil member of a mostly non-evil cult, A group of vampires that run around in packs like gangsters,
If you mean United Darkness, they're actually a darn evil bunch. They come from one of Kyle Stevens' GBWC stories, United Darkness
and 3 mummys? Or 2 mummys and a Cad Aver (LOL BTW).
That last one was Ogre's.
The good guys doesn't seem to like the GBs very much, so is he really the good guy, or just the better of a bunch of bad guys?
As mentioned, Sergei/Anatole actually has a little bit of history with the original GBs.
And the dude at the end, Nathaniel Blaque, has his own history with the original Ghostbusters. That actually comes from (RGB comic) canon.
Reminds me kinda of a very action heavy episode of Law and Order...
I take that as a compliment. One of the struggles I'm having with "Toy Soldiers" is finding ways to not have it, in my own mind, "read like an overlong episode of L&O or CSI". More action and humor, asshole!"
(I also hope you've taken a look at Mick Nielson's new fan video series, "Ghosts & Busters: Supernatural Victims Unit"viewtopic.php?f=5&t=420
I'm not totally sure who all of these people are and what their exact alliances are or what they are trying to accomplish, so I am ready to find out the upcoming chapters. Bring it on!
Thanks. I hope it will be all worth the wait, and I get the questions answered to everyone's satisfaction.
