Vampires are undead predators that are characterized by their human or mortal shapes, elongated canines, corpse-like pallor, the need to drink mortal blood (or in some cases, consume mortal life force, chi, energy, etc), and their weakness to sunlight. Many nation states of Siveth consider them kill on sight, as vampires frequently leave behind a string of murder victims in their wake. They tend to be solitary creatures that do not tolerate the presence of rivals well.

Origins

No one can really say for certain where vampires came from, even among the fanged predators themselves. Many cultures around Siveth contain some sort of corpse like predator that prey upon weaker mortals, and their origin stories are all varied within them. Some say that it was originally a curse from a local deity. Others say it was the result of foul blood magic and the trafficking with demons. Whichever it might be, the fact remains that vampires do exist.

Characteristics

No matter their origin, vampires share many of the same traits:

  • Aura of Undead:
  • Corpse-like Pallor:

  • Hunger For Mortal Life:
  • Sunlight Vulnerability: All vampires on Siveth are extremely vulnerable to sunlight, insomuch that they instantly burst into flame under direct sunlight.
