M3 Vampires: Common Traits

Appetite & Feeding
            Vampires must feed. Their appetites are insatiable and unending. No myth goes into details about what would happen to a vampire who refused to feed
; however, there are plenty of stories that talk about how vampires cannot control the appetite and feed regardless of a conscious desire not to. That makes the appetite more like an addiction than hunger. Most stories agree it cannot be cured. Appetites fall into two categories:
·         Blood. The vampire feeds on the blood of humans. Modern storytellers like the idea of offering up the alternative of animal blood or even synthetic, but the vampires of myths feed on human blood.
·         Life force: AKA Psychic vampires. These creatures extract life force (soul, spiritual energy, etc.) from their victims. When victims don’t die, they suffer effects such as aging, memory loss, or shortened life.
