Esmeralda and her brother Dice were teenagers when, on their way to their grandparents, the family’s car hit a ghoul and crashed in a piece of wood along the 524. Their parents were dead immediately and the kids could only just escape the ghouls. Dice tried his best to protect his sister, but they both were bitten or scratched. Hunted by the ghouls, they hid in an open sewer and here, they both began to turn into ghouls themselves. Esmeralda’s legs had been broken in the crash and when, left untreated, gangrene set in, they saw no other choice but to amputate. Or rather to gnaw them off. Esmeralda survived only due to the much greater stamina the change to a ghoul had brought her.
They have been staying together, who else is there for them? For a while they found refuge under the Maria Magdalene Sanatorium and fed on the bodies of the girls killed there, but when the sanatorium burned down, they lost their home.
