Vampires are undead beings like that of popular literature. A stake through the heart and garlic cause them harm. The main difference is that most vampires are born from two undead parents and for the first 16 years of their life they are close to being normal. On their 16th birthday they go through a transformation and gain all vampiric abilities and weaknesses (like aversion to direct UV light).
+
'''Vampires''' are immortal undead beings like that of popular literature. They follow the typical cultural formula, as a wooden [[Stake|stake]] through the heart would be fatal, [[Garlic|garlic]] in all forms are incredibly toxic, and a vampire must be invited in order to enter a residence, as is with mythology. They crave and must consume [[Breather|human]] blood to survive, although a [[Soy Blood|soy substitute]] is available.
   
As a fully fledged vampire they gain many abilities: [[Super Speed|super speed]] that borders on teleportation, the ability to [[Hypnosis|hypnotise]] humans and the ability to create a [[Fireballs|fireball]] which can be thrown. They can also [[Shapeshifting|shapeshift]]; normal vampires can turn into a bat and smoke. Vampires can also open and close doors with a click of the fingers and ignite and put out candles with a wave of the hand. The count is seen to remove his soul from his body and posses a human but it is unknown whether this a common vampiric trait or just the Count's ability. Vampires can be awake in the day and as long as they don't come into direct contact with UV light they won't die.
+
Born vampires are the offspring of two undead parents, and typically live a human-passing life until they reach the age of sixteen: they have a heartbeat, breathe and an automatic self-functioning circulatory system. On the offspring's sixteenth birthday, they go through the transformation, and gain the traits of their parents and fellow vampirekind.
==Trivia==
 
   
*The ruling of the vampire race is done by the [[High Vampire Council|Vampire High Council]], whose leader is the [[Grand High Vampire]].
+
[[Half-fang|Half-fangs]] are breathers who have gone through the transformation via the bite of a vampire. They display the same traits and abilities of born vampires, although typically remain loyal to their sire. This loyalty often fades with time or outwards interference. In vampiric culture, half-fangs are typically thought lesser of because of their human roots.
   
*'[[Half-fang]]s', once bitten, don't all change at once (apparently due to what blood type they have). It's possible that different blood types unconsciously resist the change but this is not proven.
+
Vampires are governed by the [[Vampire High Council]], and lead by the [[Grand High Vampire]]. Their prophecised leader is known as the [[Chosen One (prophecy)|Chosen One]], [[Vladimir Dracula]].
   
*[[File:Vampyr.png|thumb|300px|Slayer reference book depiction]]According to Bertrand, there is another type of vampire called a [[Shapeshifter]] . Malik's mother is the only known Shapeshifter.
+
== Biology ==
  +
A vampire and all derived subspecies is, for all intents and purposes, undead. Whilst being, at the core, a human-like creature, they lack a working circulatory system and subsequent heartbeat, resulting in a evolutionary craving for blood to sustain themselves and an incredibly low body temperature. Due to their sluggish blood they cannot flush, and what blood they do have is blackened and dead.[[File:Vampyr.png|thumb|229x229px|A depiction of a vampire from a slayer's reference book]]
  +
A vampire's craving for blood can effect them immensely, intense emotions including most commonly rage, even sadness, and lack of sustenance can result in reduced ability to function. A vampire can survive off of human, animal or soya blood, although the latter is a recently developed substitute. Typically sheep or cow's blood will be chosen if human is not available, although vampires have exhibited being able to function equally well when drinking soy.
   
*Vampires have super strength, as shown by the Count, Vlad and Ingrid.
+
A born vampire will not showcase these traits until their coming of age. Previous to that, they maintain a human body temperature, circulatory and respiratory system.
   
*Vampires' eyes can also change colour. The most common colour in series 1 and 2 is red. In series 3 Vlad can change his entire eyes to black. It is also shown in series 3 that, when hypnotising someone, their eyes turn gold. The street vamp's eyes can turn entirely black as well. The reasons for this are unknown.
+
As is in mythology, they showcase a variety of weaknesses as well as strengths and particular abilities. [[Garlic]] will burn them upon contact, in vaporised, liquid or solid form, although cannot be fatal unless ingested. Sunlight and other direct UV light also burns them, and has the ability to kill if exposed for too long, especially in less powerful or newly turned individuals. It is unknown if holy water or religious imagery effects vampires, although it has been shown that they may enter (previously abandoned) holy ground<sup><ref>During [[Bloodbound|''Bloodbound'']], a church was featured.</ref></sup>. They live immortal lifespans, despite these weaknesses, and it is fairly common for a vampire to be centuries old, although they still slowly age; a vampire who is six hundred years old may appear as a middle-aged breather would.
   
*Vampires can also control the weather. When the Count gets angry, lightning strikes. It is also demonstrated briefly by Vlad in series 3.
+
They are naturally nocturnal beings, and will typically sleep by dawn. They may awaken during the day, as long as they avoid direct contact with sunlight. Coming of age vampires are known to fall asleep unwillingly during the day as their transformation date approaches, and Half-fangs may find it difficult to adjust to this new schedule.
   
==Vampire Laws==
+
Due to the lack of UV exposure and the vampire's natural deadened body and blood flow, they are unable to tan and commonly are very pallid, excluding darker skinned individuals.

Perhaps the most important and well known evolutionary tool is a vampires fangs: sharp, retractable incisors or canine teeth used for feeding and intimidation, typically in the place human canine or premolar teeth are situated. Commonly, a vampire may have a single pair of fangs within their upper jaw only, although a double set have been shown to exist, as well as smaller canines within the lower line of teeth, similar those of a dog-like species may have.

A vampires eyes are known to show a semi-controllable shift in colour. This is perhaps an evolutionary intimidation trait, or simply an emotional signal. When angry, or craving human blood, the iris may shift to a shade of red. An individuals entire eye (iris and sclera both) has also been known to shift to black, typically when angry<sup><ref>[[Kidnipped|''Kidnipped'']], The Count demonstrates the ability to Vlad, Ingrid and Robin whilst baring his fangs, before turning into a bat to hunt Van Helsing.

== Behaviour ==
  +
Vampires may be human-passing, however their behaviour lacks basic humanity. Characteristically they seem to lack empathy or kindness, and are easy to anger or irritate. They are often described as evil or cruel, and especially disregard the emotional component of most interactions. Beings deemed lower than a vampire, such as an animal or breather, are treated with little to no respect. Most startling of all, they typically take pride in these traits, and praise evilness where a breather would praise kindness.
   
''[http://youngdracula.wikia.com/wiki/Fireballs Fireballs]''
+
They are often delighted by destruction and bringing misfortune upon others. Notably, [[Ivan Dracula]] has been known to throw the [[Hellhound]], [[Zoltan]], from upon castle battlements. Described as selfish and apathetic, vampires have been shown to not hesitate to enact violence or revenge upon others, regardless of human social standards.
   
''[http://youngdracula.wikia.com/wiki/Flight Flight]''
+
As with all beings, individuals will vary. Vladimir Dracula, noteworthily, was seen as a "soft-hearted" vampire, displaying a more typically humane personality despite other vampiric characteristics such as a shortened fuse, and general apathy. Ivan Dracula has also notably shown to be a calmer, more empathetic vampire, describing himself as vegetarian and blood-free, although he eventually reverted to his truer vampiric nature. It is possible for a vampire to remain kind, although these individuals will commonly be looked down upon.
   
''[http://youngdracula.wikia.com/wiki/Hydrokinesis Hydrokinesis]''
+
Despite often treating their source of food, breathers, as less-than beings, vampires have displayed heightened care for their own kind, especially family or those within their clan. They are malicious beings but retain intelligent, human thought and emotion.
   
''[http://youngdracula.wikia.com/wiki/Hypnotism Hypnotism]''
+
Violence is an integral and unavoidable characteristic when interacting with vampires. As is their trait, they are an easy to anger species, fuses lengthening or shortening on simply a person to person basis. This often results in needless arguments, physical incursions and use of individual power within vampiric social circles. They are shown to be sensitive and easily offended or taunted, particularly to defend one's honour or show loyalty to the clan. Intimidation is frequent and vampires will commonly bare their fangs or hiss as a sign of anger or dominance, as well as engaging with certain powers and abilities such as [[Elemental Control|elemental manipulation]] or booming their voices: notably within the [[Dracula Family|Dracula family]], one may (unconsciously or not) manipulate thunder or lightning when angered.

A fully matured vampire may be host to multiple superhuman abilities, evolutionarily formed in order to survive. Particular abilities may be learned, and can be specific to an individual or their clan. It is unknown if certain abilities must be taught, or if they come naturally. If this is so, Half-fangs may display less range of power in comparison to born vampires.

In the period of time before their coming of age, a born vampire may show signs of their power previous to their transformation date. Uncontrolled [[flight]] and sporadic [[Fire Creation|fire creation]] is common, however, [[hypnosis]] is a common ability and can be learned at any age. A powerful vampire may display certain abilities in their earlier teenage years.

Count Dracula: "So, because we wear capes, we're vampires?"
Elizabeth Branaugh: "He has an overactive imagination"
Count Dracula: "Because we have a penchant for black, we're vampires? Just because we have fangs and and drink blood, we are vampires!"
Count Dracula and Elizabeth Branaugh[src]

Vampires are immortal undead beings like that of popular literature. They follow the typical cultural formula, as a wooden stake through the heart would be fatal, garlic in all forms are incredibly toxic, and a vampire must be invited in order to enter a residence, as is with mythology. They crave and must consume human blood to survive, although a soy substitute is available.

Born vampires are the offspring of two undead parents, and typically live a human-passing life until they reach the age of sixteen: they have a heartbeat, breathe and an automatic self-functioning circulatory system. On the offspring's sixteenth birthday, they go through the transformation, and gain the traits of their parents and fellow vampirekind.

Half-fangs are breathers who have gone through the transformation via the bite of a vampire. They display the same traits and abilities of born vampires, although typically remain loyal to their sire. This loyalty often fades with time or outwards interference. In vampiric culture, half-fangs are typically thought lesser of because of their human roots.

Vampires are governed by the Vampire High Council, and lead by the Grand High Vampire. Their prophecised leader is known as the Chosen One, Vladimir Dracula.

Biology Edit

A vampire and all derived subspecies is, for all intents and purposes, undead. Whilst being, at the core, a human-like creature, they lack a working circulatory system and subsequent heartbeat, resulting in a evolutionary craving for blood to sustain themselves and an incredibly low body temperature. Due to their sluggish blood they cannot flush, and what blood they do have is blackened and dead.
Vampyr

A depiction of a vampire from a slayer's reference book

A vampire's craving for blood can effect them immensely, intense emotions including most commonly rage, even sadness, and lack of sustenance can result in reduced ability to function. A vampire can survive off of human, animal or soya blood, although the latter is a recently developed substitute. Typically sheep or cow's blood will be chosen if human is not available, although vampires have exhibited being able to function equally well when drinking soy.

A born vampire will not showcase these traits until their coming of age. Previous to that, they maintain a human body temperature, circulatory and respiratory system.

As is in mythology, they showcase a variety of weaknesses as well as strengths and particular abilities. Garlic will burn them upon contact, in vaporised, liquid or solid form, although cannot be fatal unless ingested. Sunlight and other direct UV light also burns them, and has the ability to kill if exposed for too long, especially in less powerful or newly turned individuals. It is unknown if holy water or religious imagery effects vampires, although it has been shown that they may enter (previously abandoned) holy ground[1]. They live immortal lifespans, despite these weaknesses, and it is fairly common for a vampire to be centuries old, although they still slowly age; a vampire who is six hundred years old may appear as a middle-aged breather would.

They are naturally nocturnal beings, and will typically sleep by dawn. They may awaken during the day, as long as they avoid direct contact with sunlight. Coming of age vampires are known to fall asleep unwillingly during the day as their transformation date approaches, and Half-fangs may find it difficult to adjust to this new schedule.

Due to the lack of UV exposure and the vampire's natural deadened body and blood flow, they are unable to tan and commonly are very pallid, excluding darker skinned individuals.

Ingrid fangs

Perhaps the most important and well known evolutionary tool is a vampires fangs: sharp, retractable incisors or canine teeth used for feeding and intimidation, typically in the place human canine or premolar teeth are situated. Commonly, a vampire may have a single pair of fangs within their upper jaw only, although a double set have been shown to exist, as well as smaller canines within the lower line of teeth, similar those of a dog-like species may have.

A vampires eyes are known to show a semi-controllable shift in colour. This is perhaps an evolutionary intimidation trait, or simply an emotional signal. When angry, or craving human blood, the iris may shift to a shade of red. An individuals entire eye (iris and sclera both) has also been known to shift to black, typically when angry[2], but also in the case of hunger[3]. The eye may also turn a shade of gold during hypnosis[4]. These changes, whilst connected to emotion and ability, appear to be controllable.

Vlad shapeshifting into a bat.

A typical matured vampire will possess the power of super speed that borders on teleportation, the ability to hypnotise humans, and the ability to create fire and to use it as a weapon through the form of a projectile fireball. A vampire can learn to shapeshift, although most typical vampires can transform into a bat as well as smoke. Commonly, vampires can open and close doors with a click of the fingers, and ignite and extinguish candle flame with a wave of the hand. They also have a range of super senses, and the ability of flight.

Ball gowns, ostentatious capes and suits, Victorian Gothic decor and even the later punk rock subculture within younger generations of vampires seem to be rampant.

Vampires are targeted by slayers, and by extension the Slayer's Guild, because of their nature. To kill a slayer is considered a well-regarded achievement, and slayer's blood is considered a delicacy by some, and is a favourite of Count Dracula's. Vampires also often antagonise and dislike werewolves, although like all beings, this can differ. Famously, Magda Westenra's lover is a werewolf. Zombies also seem to be something of an enemy, although this may be the case for any creature a zombie encounters.

Trivia Edit

  • Half-fangs, once bitten, do not all change immedaitely, apparently due to what blood type they have. It's possible that different blood types unconsciously resist the change, but this is not proven.
