Crimson Huntress is a medieval horror set in a world tormented by demonic creatures known as the Revenant. These beasts feed on blood to prolong their unnatural existence as their numbers grow with each infectious bite.
To combat the growing hordes, Hunters of different factions join arms from the fortressed villages surrounding the Sanguine forest. Working together in highly specialized groups, these Hunters are able to kill and capture Revenant. The tactics of the Hunters must be ever changing, for the Revenant learn quickly, and have strategies of their own. The hunters work tirelessly to improve their technology and warfare with each passing day. However, despite their best efforts, they are losing ground and the human race stands on the brink of extinction.
In this dark hour, a new breed of Hunters has emerged, the Crimson. Tainted with the blood of the Revenant, the Crimson hold off the infection with the use of a rare herb know as Blood of Man. The herb must be taken for the rest of their lives or the infection will spread and they risk becoming Revenant themselves.
The story is told through the eyes of Ember, who through her saga of tragedy, becomes a legendary warrior and battles to accept both who she is and what she has become.
