Man accused of wooing vampire 'bride,' 14

STAFFORD, Va., March 28 (UPI) -- A former sailor traveled from Florida to Virginia see a 14-year-old girl he met on an Internet vampire game called Reign of Blood, authorities charge.

Christopher Rodriguez, 28, of Homestead, Fla., who called himself Lord Anthius Gladivas, was scheduled for arraignment Monday in Stafford, Va., on charges of soliciting a minor and distribution of a controlled substance to a juvenile, The Miami Herald reported. The charges could mean 80 years in prison.

Police say he traveled to Stafford with the intention of having sex with the girl -- who called herself BeautifulArsyB***h -- and gave her ground-up sleeping pills at a Halloween party to knock out her parents.

Rodriguez served in the Navy as an aviation mechanic from 2003 to 2006. He is married but separated from his wife.

His family defended him, saying he believed the girl was 18, but court documents state they disclosed their true ages on the site, where they met in 2009.

The girl believed "they were virtually married on the game" and that she loved Rodriguez in real life, a police warrant said.

But she eventually grew scared of him and told her mother. He was arrested March 9.
