Opening Narrative

(Ron Perlman's Voice as Vincent and Linda Hamilton's as Catherine Chandler)

Vincent: "This is where the wealthy and the powerful rule. It is her world, a world apart from mine. Her name is Catherine. From the moment I saw her, she captured my heart with her beauty, her warmth and her courage. I knew then as I know now she would change my life, forever."

Catherine "He comes from a secret place far below the city streets. Hiding his face from strangers, safe from hate and harm. He brought me there to save my life. And now wherever I go, he is with me in spirit. For we have a bond stronger than friendship or love and although we can never be together, we will never, ever be apart."
