Virtually all Vampires can’t practice magic. Not even first generation pure breed vampires. Ironically not even dark demonic magic despite their demon based DNA. For most vampires the only way to wield magical powers is to drink the blood of a witch, warlock, wizard, or sorcerer. Although that powerful state will only last a matter of hours. It’s said that only special vampires with “The Gift” can at least practice limited magic. This is something separate from vampire psychokinetic, and telepathic powers that exist more prevalently in the top generations, and extremely long lived vampires. Theoretically vampires should have the full span of super powers, and magical abilities related to their demon lineage. However like humans, and their amazingly powerful souls, there is a metaphysical disconnect somewhere.
At present only a very small percentage of humans display psychokinetic powers, and can practice real magic. With each passing century our evolution process seems to be increasing this number. It seems the evolution program that guides our development doesn’t want all humans to have powers until a key point in the future. On the other hand each successive generation of vampires displays less powers but the longer they live the more power they can acquire. Interestingly enough it’s linked to the long term ingestion of human blood. It’s thought that they get a bit of the power of our higher dimensional soul’s metaphysical energy each time they devour our blood.
In a way vampires are merely humans whose DNA has been altered by a demonic virus. This cuts them off from the power potential of their human soul, and yet at the same time muddles their ability to gain the power of their distant demon fathers, and mothers. The vampires inability to practice magic, and display the full range of PSI demon powers is due to their imperfect supernatural state going against their intended status as humans. Where as most humans don’t have powers merely due to evolution not granting them such things. Yet they can still learn to practice magic if they wish.
What Is “The Gift” In Vampires?
Like humans a tiny minority of vampires can manifest great power, and practice real magic. One of the most famous, and prolifically powerful vampires
with “The Gift” is the second generation vampire Dracula. His various magical, psychokinetic, and telekinetic powers make him more powerful than most first generation vampires! He is the self-proclaimed invincible vampire who taunts many a Vampire Slayer to try, and take him down. Unfortunately those foolish enough to try always meet their maker! Powerful vampires can spot humans who will acquire “The Gift” as vampires. When this happens they won’t even give the human a choice, and will bring them across into the dark shadows at a moments notice. Although they are almost always grateful since they’re generally evil, and glad to be released from their limited mortal existence. The Gift is thought to exist in those who are born cut off from their soul, or have the link with their human soul weakened due to committing all manner of atrocities. This seems to result in some metaphysical change that will manifest once their DNA is made demonic as a vampire. Although not every wretchedly dark human ends up having “The Gift” upon becoming a member of the living dead. This means there may be some other mysterious element guiding things along.
