Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human-half vampire, a guardian of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discreetly within our world. Her calling is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi.
Although the movie did not perform very well at the worldwide box office ($15,391,979 against a $30 million budget) director Mark Waters was eager to give the franchise a second chance in the form of a sequel (Vampire Academy: Frostbite). Studio Preger Entertainment agreed to fund the film on the condition that Mark Waters could get fans to raise the necessary $1.5 million on their own in proof of their support of the film. An indiegogo campaign was started and ran from August 2014 to September 2014. Fans were only able to raise $254,500 by the end of the month, thus leading to Preger Entertainment canceling plans for a sequel.
Oh, Father, turn it up.
Rose Hathaway: Please, Mr. Dragomir, I love this song.
Andre: This song is sick... the traditional "vomit" definition of the word.
Lissa Dragomir: Shut up, Andre. Me and Rose want to hear it.
Lissa's Mom: "Rose and I," Lissa, "Rose and I."
Lissa's Dad: I think the tune is rather catchy.
In the beginning when Rose lets Lissa feed on her in the kitchen, she bites in on her shoulder but when Rose gets up and looks out the window, she is wiping her neck clean.
