Synopsis

Three hundred years ago, a group of powerful beings arrived in our shores. Known as vampires, drinkers of human blood, their menace quickly spread throughout the land. But unknown to them, a powerful clan also lived in the islands, a group of beings who can transform themselves into powerful wolves - the Taong Lobos. The Taong Lobos were the humans' protectors and they immediately formed an army to destroy the vampires. The blood drinkers were no match to the Taong Lobos. One by one, they fell. Those who survived were driven into hiding. What followed was peace among the humans and taong lobos, and the memory of the vampires started to fade. But the vampires are only lying in wait – organizing and fortifying their numbers until they are ready. They are holding a secret – a prophecy that foretells of an epic battle between them and the Taong Lobos that will finally decide the one blood that shall rule all. The battle shall be led by a powerful vampire and a powerful taong lobo who are each others nemesis and downfall. The vampires believe they have found their prophesied savior and now they are preparing to come out and start the war. The Taong Lobos have grown complacent, and they know nothing about the prophecy. With the stage set for an epic battle, two individuals, Mateo and Lia, find themselves drawn to each other, unsuspecting that as they grow closer together, they are awakening the powers that are lying dormant in both of them – the same powers that will inevitably tear them apart.

Secondary cast

  • Maricar Reyes as Samantha Imperial- A famous eventologist by day, Sam is a vampire who hides in the shadows of the night. All her life, she has only known one thing – the sacred mission that she must fulfill of leading the vampires out of the Taong Lobo's iron rule. As she lays out her intricate plan for war, she must also battle the doubts that plague her and decide who she really is in the end.[6]
  • Rico Blanco as Lucas Teodoro- He is the heir to a huge real estate empire but Lucas wants nothing to do with the life that is already waiting for him. Instead, he stumbles into the world of Taong Lobos and vampires where he fights to gain the love of a lifetime. But as he starts to see his humanity as his weakness, he gets sucked into a war that will test just how human he is in the end.[7]
  • Jake Roxas as Magnus Imperial- An old and powerful vampire, Magnus wants a world where vampires live free from the terror of being hunted by the Taong Lobos. To attain this dream, he wants to win the war against both humans and taong lobos. His powerful weapon is his daughter, Samantha, whom he believes will lead their kind to victory.[7]
  • Jaime Fabregas as Abraham Villamor - Among the most powerful and influential Waya, Abraham has been a loyal ally of the former Punong Bantay Lyka. Even up to this day, he remains to be a loyalist to her, supporting Lyka’s daughter, Lia, against the wishes of the present leadership of the taong lobos. But his criticism against the leaders have caused him enemies.[7]
  • Vivian Velez as Lucille Zaragosa - To everyone else, Lucile is the CEO of the influential business group, Waya Incorporated. But in real life she is also the Punong Bantay, the most powerful leader of the Taong Lobos. Ruling the Taong Lobos with an iron hand, she holds on to the power no matter what. She will put down all those who wanted to get her thrown especially if it turns out to be Lia - the daughter of the woman she loathes the most. [7]
  • Johnny Revilla as Simon Teodoro - A real estate mogul. Simon is an ambitious person. The father of Lucas but never showed his loved for his son. Instead, he favored Mateo, an orphan he picked up from the streets. For Simon, the most important thing is to be on top whatever it takes - one belief that he successfully put into the mind of Mateo.[7]
  • Jomari Yllana as Roman Rodriguez - He is a 300 year old vampire who dreams of peace between his kind, the humans and the Taong Lobos. He has controlled his thirst for blood to prove that vampires can survive without hurting anyone. He believes he holds the key to peace but his journey to make everyone else listen brings tears and tragedy to many.[7]
  • Niña Dolino as Clarisse Zaragosa[7] - Daughter of the most powerful woman in the Taong Lobo world and being groomed to take over the reins of the Lobo leadership, Clarisse is used to getting her own way but love shows her that there are just some things she cannot force and manipulate.

Groups

  • Waya Inc - Standing in the middle of a busy business district is a tower that houses one of the most influential business conglomerates in the land – the Waya Incorporated. Waya Inc. holds great influence on major business and industrial sectors in our society. But behind that facade are not just powerful men in business suits but also unique beings with special characteristics. They are the Taong Lobos – men and women who can transform themselves into powerful beasts that can easily slash your throat or break your neck. The humans need not fear them, however, because the Taong Lobos are humans' protectors especially from the dreaded vampires. For centuries they have lived among us, integrating themselves into our way of life to better protect us. But they are unaware that their biggest battle is about to come.
  • Club Sangre - To the ordinary eye, Club Sangre is just a place for the young, posh, and loaded. A members-only-club, it perfectly fits the profile of a hip place for partying. But that perception is far from the truth. Club Sangre is a breeding ground for those who want to be immortals and for those who want to be part of the dark world of the Vampires. The Vampires are getting ready for a holy war, a war that shall make them the rulers of the land, and Club Sangre is the nerve center where they lay out their plans to emerge from the shadows they have been hiding in for the past decades.
