–noun 1. a preternatural being, commonly believed to be a reanimated corpse, that is said to suck the blood of sleeping persons at night. 2. (in Eastern European folklore) a corpse, animated by an undeparted soul or demon, that periodically leaves the grave and disturbs the living, until it is exhumed and impaled or burned. 3. a person who preys ruthlessly upon others; extortionist. 4. a woman who unscrupulously exploits, ruins, or degrades the men she seduces. 5. an actress noted for her roles as an unscrupulous seductress: the vampires of the silent movies.

as we can see, the word is used for many things. I believe firmly that people like me, who feed on others in a literal sense, are the ones who were originally given this name
