A vampire is commonly defined as "A preternatural being, commonly believed to be a reanimated corpse, that is said to suck the blood of sleeping persons at night." It is commonly accepted vampires are undead. Since they have no place in the natural ecology it is difficult to describe them in terms familiar to the zoologist, but there are parallels which may be drawn via analogies which shall not be stretched too thinly. Vampires do not age, rot, or fall victim to diseases, but there is a noticeable life-cycle of sorts. Vampires do not consume food as we do, but they must "feed" before they may rest, and they must feed at least once every 24 hours. Unlike lycanthropes, they are not required to feed on the blood of the innocent, but may instead sustain themselves on the blood of any creature. Some of those vampires living within human domains which are close to the various dungeons may be augmenting or even basing their diet on the creatures within those dungeons. This would certainly do wonders to maintain their deception. (more...)
