Malevolence is the creation of Robert Hazelton. It comes from his many inspirations, including Carmilla, Dracula, Dark Shadows, Hammer Films, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and many more. It started out as an exercise to create a vampire story with a few twists. Something that had the feel of those novels and shows he grew up with. It turned into a full blown property with multiple avenues to enjoy the stories, as well as plenty of art to convey the specific style and darkness of this setting. The gothic horror genre lives on, and Malevolence hopes to take its place right alongside some modern classics.

Thank you for coming along on this journey. We look forward to seeing you in the night.
