|“||The blood is the life!||„|
|~ The words of Dracula.|
Alternatively, a Vampire can be any kind of creature that is said to feast regularly on blood or other sustenance such as energy, life-force, etc., though beings that steal life-forces may be closer to a Collector of Souls.
Many Vampires are also very well-known and popular for their ability to translate into animals such as wolves, bats, owls, ravens, foxes, rats, moths and cats as well as having mist all around them during their appearance. Their prey can be humans, cattle, sheep, goats, rabbits, birds such as chickens, ducks, and geese and rodents such as mice and squirrels. They are commonly depicted as hailing from the Mediterranean or Eastern Europe or having accents from either region.
For non-undead Human Vampires, they are scientificly known as Homo Nosferatu Vampiris, and shockingly enough, this proves that they belong to humanity all along. For a Vampire Lord that would be Homo Nosferatu Vampiris Dominus and for a Transcendent Vampire will be Homo Nosferatu Vampiris Deus/Numine.
The most well-known example of a Vampire is Dracula.
