Sarah Lockwood Pardee, originaire de New Haven dans le Connecticut, épouse en 1862 William Wirt Winchester, le fils unique d'Oliver Winchester, le propriétaire de la Winchester Repeating Arms Company. Sarah donnera naissance quatre ans plus tard à la petite Annie Pardee Winchester, mais l'enfant décède quelques semaines plus tard d'une maladie. Sarah Winchester en est très affectée et tombe dans une profonde dépression. Oliver Winchester meurt en 1880 et son fils William décède à son tour, un an plus tard. Sarah hérite donc de la moitié des parts de la Winchester Repeating Arms Company et d'une véritable fortune. Mais Sarah pense qu'elle et sa famille sont maudites. En 1886, elle va alors décider de faire construire un vaste manoir à San José pour y accueillir des fantômes, surnommée la Mystérieuse Maison Winchester.

In 2009, a plague caused by an infected vampire bat has transformed most of the world's population into vampires and due to this event, control of the world no longer belongs to humans. The vampires are incapable of aging or dying, but are unprotected against sunlight or any ultraviolet light. The entire vampire world is active at night, and various technological and architecture advances are made to adjust the populated areas to vampires' night cycle (such as UV protective cars, underground railways and paths across the cities, and UV warnings).
