Though there are always hints at D’s family, and past, in Diamonde we get another piece of the puzzle not to mention a frightening glimpse of just how little D may actually care about human life (not to mention the rare sight of D wearing pants.) When asked to make good on his grandfather’s agreement to protect a royal lineage, it seems even murder is not outside D’s expertise. Orcot, is shocked, then determined to bring D to justice–for all of D’s talk of humanity’s cruelty, he could never have predicted this level of callousness. But was it all really D? In Desire, a little girl learns that using a pet to feel superior only lessens others’ opinions of her, no matter how angelic she thinks she is. Dessert shows that D may favor more than sweets when tempted by the right person. D is swept away by a sexy new chef specializing in Chinese delicacies, but Orcot is convinced the gentleman has ulterior motives that bode ill for the Count. He should know by now that D is always one step ahead. Devil focuses in on weightier matters by tracing a woman’s memories through her vast collection of teddy bears. Her regression leads her to memories of a hidden past in Nazi Germany, allowing her descendants to uncover a lost heritage.
