The vampires have conquered the Sarafan Warrior Priests and almost all of mankind and have inhabited their ancient architectures for centuries.
Kain, the master of all vampires and practically a god, destroys all those who defy him. So when Raziel, one of Kain's lieutenants, surpasses him in the evolutionary process by developing wings, Kain cripples him and casts him into the Lake of the Dead where his soul burns for an eternity.
But spared from total dissolution, Raziel finds himself in the afterlife, his soul forfeit to the Elder God that saved him. The task demanded of him is that he wreak his revenge upon his former brothers, the Lieutenants of Kain and so he dicovers his vampiric thirst can only be quenched by absorbing the souls of his victims; the after effect of his transition from vampire to avenging spirit, teleporting between the living world and the realm of the dead.
In seeking out Kain, Raziel finds his clan has been slaughtered, that his brethren have evolved into nighmarish monsters and he unwittingly finds himself becoming an unlikely saviour to the frail remains of humanity.
Above all else, in his quest of vengeance, Raziel finds himself merged with the spirit of Kains most powerful weapon and all that can stop him; the Soul Reaver!
