Despondent after the death of his wife and unborn child, one night he wanders drunkenly along the waterfront of New Orleans and is assaulted by Lestat de Lioncourt, a vampire. Lestat senses the frustration of Louis with life and offers to turn him into a vampire. Louis agrees, but he comes to regret it soon. Louis resists his compulsion to kill, instead of consuming animal blood to sustain himself, while Lestat revels in the hunting and killing of humans. Disgusted with Lestat's joy in killing, Louis comes to suffer as a vampire tremendously. In the midst of an epidemic of plague, roaming the streets of New Orleans, Louis can no longer resist his appetite and feeds on a little girl whose mother died during the plague. Lestat converts the dying child, Claudia, into a vampire in order to entice Louis to remain with him. They're raising her as a daughter together. For Claudia, Louis has a pure fatherly affection, while Lestat spoils her more as a pupil and treats her more, teaching her to become a ruthless killer.
