Bleeding Heart Yard
Welcome, Vampires of London!
A grand ball was held at the Hatton house on the 26th of January 1626 (sometimes shown as 1662). Lady Elizabeth Hatton had attracted a lot of eyes in the party as she danced through the night, being both a young and wealthy beauty. Suddenly, a European ambassador (usually Spanish) burst into the room in a fine and elegant figure. He took Lady Hatton in a hold and danced with her. This man was sometimes described as having a slight hunched shoulder and a clawed right hand.
They then danced out of the room and into the gardens. This caused quite a stir among the guests, with gossips running around if the couple would come back after their trip to the garden. But they had the unexpected; the couple didn't come back. The next morning, they found the body of Lady Hatton in a cobbled courtyard behind the stable block of the Hatton house. Her body was ripped apart, torn limb my limb, yet her heart was still pumping blood on the cobblestones. People then thought that the man she was with was the Devil.
The courtyard in which they found the body is now the Bleeding Heart Yard. There is a French restaurant and bistro located there now, and the Bleeding Heart Tavern. Right now, vampires have been managing these informal pubs. Each of the buildings has a secret entrance to the London Vampire Clan's underground hideout. If ever you discover one, don't go in there without anything on you!
