The idea for Cryptic University came to the Countess of Darkness Madame Bruno in the year 780 after she saw how well the Demons had established their own school, Blood Moon University. Madame Bruno called a meeting of the most powerful in the Vampire World at that time and explained her plan for a school to rival the Demons. After much debate to determine if Vampires could work together and what would be the point of having a school, it was determined to allow Madame Bruno the means in which to create her university. Originating from France, Madame Bruno decided to build her school at the foot of what modern day France calls the Morvan. The school is nestled in an area below the highest peak of the mountain, Haut-Folin, which is 901 meters. The official opening of the school was conducted in the year 999. Newly created vampires flocked to the school to learn about the vampire culture, how to live unnoticed by mortals, along with gaining an education on other immortal beings. There was not a set number of years that vampires were required to attend or even a limit to how many years a vampire was allowed to remain in the school as a student. May of the original vampires who attended the school ended up becoming part of the faculty. In the year 1026, a partisan agreement was made with the Demons as a sort of exchange program, Demons would be allowed to attend Cryptic University and Vampires would attend Blood Moon University. Blood Moon University is located in a remote area in a land now known as North America and a country called United States. It is hidden from mortals by powerful spells using magic from different UnDead Beings. Cryptic University limits its students to just Demons and Vampires even though Blood Moon University had opened its doors to a diverse immoral student cliental. Cryptic University is still overseen by the Countess of Darkness Madame Bruno. She has had many whom have tried to take her power and control, but her foes have always faced defeat. She has a strong support system from past vampires who have attended Cryptic University, who have been known to remove any obstacle that may appear before Madame Bruno.
