Joe Vampire is the evil HR guy at the company.  He once trained people in the art of phlebotomy but that’s not how he got his pseudonym.  He's not quite sure how it was bestowed upon him, as a matter of fact.  Because he’s in HR, and therefore has no friends, he retreats into a world of horror movies, video games, beards, beers, bears, black metal, and playing guitar for Old Towne Ghosts.

I had no choice; I was destined for a life of nerdly pursuits. My father is to blame. Sure, my genetics (only half his fault) may have prevented me from having any sort of proclivity when it came to doing anything that involved running or the usage of mostly spherical object colloquially known as a ball. There was also that thing where I was fat – still kind of am. My mind, on the other hand, gravitated towards the fantastic and scientific. It was only a matter of time before my dad...
