Synopsis:
A vampire is jealous of his brother's prowess and so he bargains with a witch to kill him. The witch gives him a powder to sprinkle on his brother's wings so that they will be unresponsive when he attempts to flee the mob. He is gleeful when he returns to his parents with the news his brother has been slain as he thinks their attention will focus only on him now, but they burst into tears that they have lost two sons this night. He is informed that he has a blood disorder which requires more blood than usual and the parents thought they were unable to provide. When the brother was born, they were happy because he was so powerful, he would be able to provide enough blood for the both of them. For years, his brother had been feeding him by transfusions while he slept, as he did not want him to feel like an invalid. Out of shame, the vampire breaks off the limb of a tree and plunges it into his heart rather than experience starvation.

A magician gets his romantically-minded assistant out of the way by locking her in a safe and dumping it in the river so that she drowns as water leaks in. To celebrate his marriage to a wealthy society lady he has himself buried in a coffin with instructions to his new assistant to tunnel beneath the coffin so he can open a latch and escape through it. The assistant is doped with knockout drops by the zombie drowned girl. She pulls the magician out of the coffin into her dark embrace.
