Act 2: Scene 9
Lucien pursues Catherine alone – they dance – here he reveals that he knows Catherine is a vampire, because so is he. He want complete dominance over New Orleans, vampires as ruthless leaders of the city. He wants to vanquish any mortals and voodoo queens that stand in his way. Either Catherine can join him at his side – or he will destroy all she loves. She moves away from him in horror – they are now enemies.
