Illicitus is the Latin word for forbidden which means not permitted or allowed. Some say to love a monster is forbidden. To love a monster is to embrace death, to be in fear for your life every moment you spend with them. But not all monsters are evil, Quintus Sertorius conceived by a mortal and a strigoi, born to wander the earth as a half breed. Doomed for the need of blood, equitably ill fated for the need of love.
