MeiLi (aka Merlot) and Tai (aka Red).
When MeiLi was a little peasant girl there was a tiger spirit who watched over her tiny chinese village, and the people were not afraid. One day, the tiger spirit was gone, and a dark chill settled over the land. The mongol hoards came, lead by vampire generals, and killed and kidnapped and pillaged and left the village in ruins, taking the few people they left alive, including MeiLi, with them. When Tai the tiger Spirit returned, he saw what had been done to his village and flew into a rage, massacring the hoards responsible - but it was too late. MeiLi was already dead, and brought back into eternal life as a vampire.
Later MeiLi lost her eyesight in a totally unrelated incident, hense the title. Oh, and MeiLi's actually not that short, Tai's just eight feet tall.
