The Dark Commandos ("DC") are a team of vampires working as an elite covert assassination and special ops unit for the United States government. Naturally this is a highly secret group. Their identities and very existence are known only to a handful of top brass, and their orders come directly from the Oval Office.
The group has been active for more than half a century, since their original member -- a then five hundred year old vampire -- was captured from the Nazis, who had first pursued the myth of his existence and finally found him buried in Europe.
America's plans for this creature of the night were not unlike Hitler's scheme: to raise an "Undead Brigade" -- a nearly invincible team of soldiers possessing devastating supernatural powers.
