For this article Vampires mean Sanguine Vampires, aka vampires who require blood for strength, and survival. There are four distinct breeds of Sanguine Vampire currently known to reside on Earth. These are the Direct Demonic Origin Vampires (Common Vampires), the Indirect Demonic Origin Vampires (Nosferatu’s), the Human Vampire, and the Magical Origin Vampires. The first two have vampire viral transmission capabilities while the later two generally don’t. There may in fact be other types of supernatural beings who subsist off blood with non-demonic higher dimensional origins but they are beyond rare cryptid anomalies. We are also not including Reverse Vampires, aka Sol Vampires who actually survive, and thrive on the blood of plants known as Chlorophyll. The following are descriptions of the four main vampire breeds in order from rarest to largest paranormal populace.
The Magical Origin Vampire
Magically created vampires are the rarest of the three vampires types, and have a mostly non-demonic origin. Simply put a powerful practitioner of magic turns a person into a vampire via a curse, or powerful spells they cast. In some cases when talking about witches, or warlocks they may call upon demons for power causing somewhat of a demonic connection. Magical Origin vampires will have varying degrees of vampire strengths, and weaknesses along with ones that never existed before. Usually there’s some sadistic twist as this mystical vampirism is doled out as a punishment to a human who crossed the wrong mad magician, or vengeful Gypsy!
The Human Vampire
Since they are the only sanguine sipping vampires who can always walk in holy sunlight they are sometimes mistakenly called Reverse Vampires. Human Vampires in fact possess an active vampire super power gene. Every human on Earth is born with all latent psychokinetic super powers that exist in the Omniverse within their Junk DNA. This is the physical manifestation of our infinite higher dimensional souls that exist in the Afterlife. Souls that have already ascended to Godhood since they reside outside our temporal dimension. Our Spirits that have eventually communed with the Omniverse God thereby absorbing his complete powers granting them, aka someday you, Omnikinetic powers (the full array of supernatural powers possible in this Omniverse). Very few humans are lucky enough to have an active PSI gene among the mostly inactive Junk DNA. However with each passing generation their numbers increase ever more courtesy of human evolution activating these paranormal powers. Among them is a vampire gene that derives powers from the consumption of blood that is in turn transformed into supernatural sanguine energy. Since demons are apart of the Omniverse, and therefore the Omniverse God, this is the representation of filtered demonic vampire power in human form.
A Human Vampire has all the powers of a standard vampire without the weaknesses. They can walk in sunlight, aren’t repelled by holy religious artifacts, affected by silver, sickened by zombie blood, or susceptible to anything a common vampire must avoid. However if they choose to avoid their urge to consume blood they will temporarily lose their powers until they do so. In addition they don’t have immortality, and age about the same as a standard human. Although the more blood they consume the longer they can hold off the aging process, and live very healthy lives into their early 100’s. Extreme cases may survive until 150 years of age.
Human Vampires usually notice their sanguine urges, and hints of power in their teens, or later. Eating meat, especially meat cooked rare, gives them a slight power kick. Those raised as a vegetarian never touching meat may very well never activate their vampire powers, and remain ignorant of their true potential. Unlike other vampires who crave human blood these variety of vamps tend to prefer animal blood since consumption of human blood is borderline cannibalism. Like common vampires they can temporarily acquire the talents of those they drink from. This includes gaining powers from supernatural beings. There is anecdotal evidence that drinking the blood of a Direct Demonic Origin Vampire will in fact transform them into a real immortal demonic vampire.
Nosferatu: The Indirect Demonic Origin Vampire
This type of vampire is infected with varying strains of the vampire virus whose ultimate origin is indirectly demon in nature. It’s been said that there is a strain of this virus with a pandemic capability similar to the zombie virus thereby creating the potential for a Vampire Apocalypse! Humans generally catch this type of vampire virus from an infected animal who bites them. However these virus strains aren’t quite as potent in animals as the direct demonic virus. The direct demonic strain can only be transmitted by vampires of the direct demon line which will be discussed later in this article. The most common animals to transmit the virus are Vampire Bats who have been infected by a Bat Flea, a paranormal cryptid that is the main carrier of the vampire virus. Some Cryptozoologist’s have suggested that the Bat Flea may be a demonic tampering of natural evolution.
Those who are infected with the vampire virus in this way are hideous creatures referred to as Nosferatu. Unlike the usual beautiful vampires who can hide their monstrous side, and mingle charmingly among us, the Nosferatu are damned to hide in the dark moonlit shadows for their entire mortal lives. Lives that can go for nearly 1000 years depending on how much quality human blood they consume. Despite their appearance, and rancid stench hampering their blood collection efforts, they do possess some measure of vampire hypnotic compelling powers. So those with weak minds can be tricked into thinking they’re with a super model rather than a deformed monster. Thankfully it uses too much sanguine energy so they usually just attack people, and drain them of blood. Unlike the Direct Demonic Origin Vampires there’s no special process to turn a human into a vampire. The Nosferatu only has to bite a victim, and then let them live with the horror. It’s basically the same as a zombie but sentient of course. Luckily they rarely leave anyone alive to face such Earthly damnation. That coupled with extensive vampire hunting over the centuries has kept this breed of vampires numbers low. Certainly these creeps stand out like a sore thumb even in the darkness making them ideal targets for Vampire Slayers.
Nosferatu are the closest things to naturally evolved vampires in the respect that they display very little supernatural magic like a Common Vampire. Their eyes don’t glow, and their appearance can’t change. Their fangs always out with no retraction ability. Other than limited hypnotic abilities they can’t attain talents, and powers by drinking people’s blood. There’s also no psychic powers as well. They merely have enhanced strength, speed, agility, and senses. They are no match for The Common Direct Demonic Origin Vampire! In fact the Common Vampire considers the Nosferatu an inferior sub-species. You can learn more about this horrifying nocturnal menace here.
The Direct Demonic Origin Vampires
These are the most common vampires which is why they are usually referred to as Common or Standard Vampires. When speaking of vampires on this website we are almost exclusively referring to them. Especially considering that Mystic Investigations Executive Vice-President Drake Alexander is a 5th Generation Common Vampire. They are the ones you probably know best from movies, or television. The most infamous being the very real Dracula. They appear as exquisite humans yet can transform their faces to something more monstrous by varying degrees. Eye glowing, and fangs popping out are the most common transformation traits. Earlier generations can appear extremely monstrous at will! Unlike the Nosferatu who are equal in strength to each other, the Standard Vampire grows stronger the longer they live with the strongest of their kind being the earliest generations. Each successive generation has less paranormal power. A cumulative weakness caused by the vampire virus being diluted with more humanity. It’s said there will be a future vampire generation that could walk in sunlight, and won’t have the ability to transform another into a vampire. A process that involves draining a human of blood to the brink of death by a vampire sire who then introduces their blood with the vampire virus within it.
The Common Vampires originate from demons possessing humans to such an extent that they alter their DNA to demonic. Then when mating with another human a first generation vampire baby was born. A baby whose DNA is laden with the parasitic demonic vampire virus. These pure breed vampires are the only ones who can give birth to vampire children while successive generations virally created from humans cannot. It’s rumored that the absolute first human form vampire was the product of two deeply demon possessed humans mating to create an Alpha Über Vampire. No ancient evidence exists to support this however.
Since these vampires come from a direct demonic line they are repelled, and weakened by anything holy whether it be sunlight, religious symbols, blessed objects, silver, garlic, etc. In exchange for these weaknesses they get the gift of ageless immortality unlike all the other preceding vampires mentioned. Although Magical Origin Vampires can be made immortal if the creator wishes. They are also some of the most powerful paranormal beings on Earth considered virtual apex paranormal predators with amazing super strength, speed, agility, senses, and psychic hypnotic abilities. As mentioned earlier they can drink the blood of any being not poisonous to them, and acquire their talents & powers. This doesn’t usually include animals since most vampires are superior in all ways to animals.
The First Generation Vampires are considered royals among most, and have formed their own global vampire government in Transylvania. A shadow government unfortunately in league with the Devil, and his legions of Hell demons! They bow only to their Pure Demons, and Demi-Demon Masters. These vampires, and their lower generation vampire minions will be major supernatural players in the coming Battles Of Armageddon that will determine what higher dimensional species eventually rules over humans, and the Earth!
