Blood Lines is a martial arts manga.
The Blood race is a secret and powerful race of humans who have lived in the dark side of society for centuries. Based on the 12 Zodiac animals, each group has an animal representing their bloodline. The blood that these people possess allows them to heal incredibly quickly and the only way to kill them is by cutting off their head. Even more, by consuming the blood of other Blood races, they become stronger. These Blood races have been secretly responsible for significant historical events such as wars.
