Welcome to the land of the Texas vampires! Here you can learn about Don Rafael Perez, the men who serve him, and the women who love them.
Don Rafael Perez was originally a thirteenth-century Spanish knight. In his honor, the vocabulary for the Texas vampires’ universe is drawn from feudal Spain. That very special time and place, where Christians, Moslems, and Jews lived together in a rich cultural synthesis, was also the origin of the vaqueros’ – and later the cowboys’ – cattle herding skills and specialized gear.
