Vampires: What We Really AreI think how humans view my kind is quite amusing. It makes for a more satisfying chase if I'm not what a human believes about vampires: they'll never be expecting what we really are. It's an easier capture, but a longer pursuit....
No one can simply just wake up and say, "Today, I'm going to become a vampire." That's not how it works. You need to be born one of us. A lot of people get confused about why they see "shadows" or "dark and light figures", why food doesn't taste the same, why they crave blood, and why all of this starts happening around ages 7-12. This happens because before the age of 7, humans don't have their own judgement, depending on the judgement of their parents who, strangely, don't reveal the dark side of the world to their young and blind them. They don't know what being "different" means. Human adults fear the unknown, and so they believe their children will too. But little do they know, a child that is meant to be a vampire has less fear of the dead and dark entities than they do.
There are many different types of vampires.
A developing vampire often has premonitions in the early stages, a power that might stick with the vampire if he or she is meant to be a "psychic vampire". A "psychic vampire" is often more susceptible to seeing "dark entites", "light entities", having premonitions, and having close contact with the other side. These type of our kind usually keep to themselves, luring humans in with their mysteriousness. A lot of devolping vampires that are meant to be "psychic vampires" hear "voices in their head", usually multiple unknown voices saying their name. This is normal before a rebirth of a "psychic vampire". The "voices" are most likey those of other "psychic vampires" close by who sensed the presence of the new developing "psychic vampire", and are aquanting themselves with the new member of their kind.
Often said to be "draining", this form of vampire feeds off of the energy of any life force. An "energy vampire" can feed off of the energy of any living creature, but chooses to feed off of humans because they omit the strongest and most satisfying form of energy. "Energy vampires" , if drained of energy, can be charismatic and very talkative to lure humans in and draw out their energy, leaving the human tired and worn out. When full of energy, this form of vampire becames quiet and thoughtful, even though this behavior is often unwanted by the vampire itself. An "energy vampire" often chooses a profession that involves being around a lot of people, such as a musician, a doctor, a psychologist, or a motivational speaker.
The "blood vampire". The form of vampire that is most adored by the human race. Many people have misconceptions of the "blood vampire", often stating that this form of vampire can change humans into "blood vampires" with a bite through the flesh. This is NOT TRUE. This form of vampire does not contain any form of "venom" or substance that will change a human into a vampire within their bite. A "blood vampire" can draw a human in with their aura. The voice and eyes of a "blood vampire" are the first things to usually allure a human. When this form of vampire bites, the bite usually is not painful whatsoever, at first. This is considered a very sensual feeling, as "blood vampires" usually seduce their pray before biting them. Once the human starts feeling weak due to blood loss, they realize that the vampire is draining them of blood and feel excruciating pain. These vampires are not very eminent in society, their "blending in" being a part of their hunting process.
Many people have developed a false perception of vampires and our fears/weaknesses.
- We are not afraid of crucifixes or holy water. Often times, Christianity attributes us to Satan, seeing as some of us take blood and, as it states in the Bible, "the Blood is the life". This is a mere misconception. We can sit through a church session if we pleased, just like anybody else could.
-Silver does not harm us. On the contrary, silver is one of our most adored metals. We often wear silver, and love the pureness of the metal. We find that it is a very good conductor of energy, and find it easier to store energy within the confines of silver jewelry.
-We are not warded off by garlic. This is a myth that I hear often, and it takes me aback to think that some people think an herb can ward off a supernatural being. It's just not logical.
-We do not sleep in coffins. We sleep in beds just like everyone else. This myth derives from the other myth that "we are dead". We are not dead.
-We are not afraid of the sunlight. We do not "spontaneously combust" or "ignite" when we go out during the day. Quite the contrary, we walk around during the day and blend in with regular society. However, we are more comfortable in the night time, and usually "let go" more under the moonlight as opposed to the sunlight.
