Vampires? No Such Thing.
Aliens, though, that's something else.
They've been here, living quietly among us, since before the Industrial Revolution.
Their goal: To ensure we never leave our Solar System. We have a bad habit of wiping out indigenous populations, and theirs is the nearest inhabited planet to ours.

8 billion Earthlings, and our survival is in the hands of one guy - alien - meant to wipe us out.
