In 1933, while on the Columbia River to research fish ladders for the Grand Coulee Dam, Prof. McFinn heard;the Multnomah;legend of the "Great Bloodsuckers" that;moved in a black cloud;beneath it's waters. The tale of the Black Water Chinook sent shivers through the Native American tribes that fished the wild Columbia. A terrifying tale that had no effect on crew member;Vlad Marinescu, (a Romanian who grew up scoffing at tales of vampirism).;McFinn wrote in his log that when;the crew eventually;encountered a slow moving black;smudge on the river, Vlad jumped in laughing. The ship's Native American guide, Jacob Black;quickly pulled him from the roiling water, but he was no longer so jolly, his legs covered in puncture wounds. In the days that followed, Marinescu eventually wasted away and lost his mind. On February 12th, Marinescu ran off the ship and into the foggy;Portland night, screaming and wailing, never to be seen again.
