Remember when this happened? (Walter gave the same bit of background earlier.)
Alucard: The chordewa originated in the Bengal region, in Asia. I did not expect to meet one in London. I had forgotten that, like all vampire strains, old ones can now be found everywhere.
They favor a cat shape. And it is a peculiarity of theirs that if one licks your lips while in this shape, you die soon after.
I pulled that chordewa off of our Master’s face one night. Had it succeeded. she would have been killed. Not turned or sickened; killed. This is serious, Police Girl. It’s so serious that I don’t even have a punch line.
