Play as Noe, a human and lover of all things paranormal, as they take a chance and enter the strange house on Dead End Drive with the hope that the rumors they’ve heard about its inhabitants are true. There they find Laurel, Ilyas, and Valeria, and they quickly discover that there’s no escape, but not all endings are fatal. 

First Bite is rated 18+ for strong language, violence (potential player death),  blood and gore, (optional) sexual scenes (including consensual kink and BDSM),  (supernatural) emotional manipulation, and other content that some players may find disturbing. Player discretion is advised.


LAUREL PORTMAN (CV: Jalen Cassell)

“Is there something I can do for you? Yes. Is there something I will do for you? Quite unlikely, but it’s worth a shot.”

 Laurel (he/they) is pushing 300 and is a lover of Hot Topic, insincerity, and watching their victims bleed out on the floor while they watch TV. He’s also a seasoned connoisseur of the backhanded compliment and a force to be reckoned with. Tread lightly. Or not…

ILYAS AL-RAI (CV: Alejandro Saab)

“Desperation makes your blood sweeter, so… beg.”

Ilyas (he/him)  is the oldest but definitely not the wisest of the trio, coming in at a solid 2400 years old. Lover of athleisure, Eurodance, lifting weights, and thinking he’s the smartest guy in the room. (Spoiler: he’s not.) He’s big, he’s buff, and he’s loveable as hell, but you don’t want to be his prey. UNLESS…

VALERIA ANDREI (CV: Marie Westbrook)

“All I’m thinking about is shredding your throat like barbecue, so talk fast.”

She might be the youngest of our trio, but Valeria (she/they) certainly believes she has the upper hand. But don’t let her pretty face fool you, her bite is far worse than her bark. Though… both leave a pretty nasty sting. She’s fucked Dracula, likes poetry, cheating at board games, internet shopping, and warm-blooded murder.
