Blade 1: Enemies Synopsis

Meet Blade. But be careful. You might not like what you see. He's dangerous. He needs to be. Because there are people who want him dead. It's dog eat dog in his world. Win or die. He thought he was safe. But now they've found out where he is. And they're coming.

"So what am I going to tell you? Not much so don't get excited. You probably want to know my name. Well, that's a bit of a problem. I got loads. But there is one name I like. Everybody called me it in the old days. No one does now cos no one in this city knows it. And that's fine. I don't like to remember. But I do like the name. You can use it if you want. BLADE".
