As Connor tries to work on a genealogy project for one of his college courses, his town is experiencing a surge of vigilantism in which criminals are being killed. Connor suspects he is doing it in his sleep. He also experiences a certain amount of cognitive dissonance (possibly due to the memory spell used to place him with a human family), wondering if he is genuinely a child born of two vampires or if he is a child born of a normal family. The title of Connor's story is "Inheritance."
