Akasha was the first vampire in existence. She is known among vampires as the "Queen of the Damned".
Akasha was born over 6,000 years ago, long before "The first pharaoh built the first pyramid." At a young age she married Enkil, the King of Kemet (which would later become Egypt).
One night, a group of nobles crept into the palace and stabbed Enkil and Akasha multiple times, leaving them both mortally wounded. As Akasha's soul left her body, a powerful spirit named Amel snatched it, intertwined it with his own and thrust their combined spirits into her body. This made Akasha the world's first vampire.
Akasha saved Enkil by draining him of his remaining blood before allowing him to drink hers, making Enkil the world's second vampire and her first fledgling. Together, they tracked and killed all the nobles that participated in their assasination attempt. Akasha realized she and Enkil were now immortal with superhuman strength and had an insatiable need to drink blood to survive.
