I mentioned that the theme of this week would be vampires or vampire-like beings. This is in honor of the future since my second series will be vampire-based. I’m talking all vampires and no mortals. Unfortunately, this means I have to look for vampire pictures. I don’t want to say what I find more of. Mostly because I’m tired of those two and don’t want to bring any more attention to them.
Now, I did a Super Special Sneak Peek about Clyde back in mid-May. He got some good feedback and the gore was there. So, I’m going to give him a shot at being questioned. I mention him a lot since he’s technically my ‘dark side’. I always play him up as extremely violent, which he is. Yet, it isn’t as easy to anger him as I make people believe. Clyde wants a challenge in his fights and will only attack a weaker opponent if they start with him. Even then he’ll give some of them a chance to walk away, so he doesn’t have to waste his time.
Clyde is the progenitor of the dawn fangs. Prior to Clyde, vampires were classically powered and they lost these powers in sunlight. They adapted to this by learning magic and lording over undead. After the Great Cataclysm, Clyde was changed and could enter the light without weakening. His type of vampire is also a lot harder to kill. You need to decapitate and destroy the heart. Only a decapitation means the head can be stuck by on and the heart can be healed in an hour if that’s the only shot you get. These vampires are unable to do magic, but they each have a power of the body, power of the mind, and power of the aura. So, you never know what a dawn fang can do. The saving grace here is that they aren’t dead like their predecessors. They have a heartbeat, but they cannot create their own blood. The blood they ingest is needed to revitalize their own blood. Oh and the dawn fangs can have live births. The way they work is that a fang-born can only breed naturally because their blood isn’t as potent to make a transformation. A womb-born can breed both ways because their blood is stronger.
Clyde himself is a warrior with illusion powers, can create his own blood, and get put himself into a state of god-like strength called Lord’s Rage. That last one does leave him crazed and tired if it goes for too long. If he doesn’t kill what forced him to go into Lord’s Rage then he’ll slaughter the next thing he sees. He can use his blood to transform old vampires into dawn fangs, but he is very picky about that. Anyone that is considered a Child of Clyde has to live by his rules and not cause any trouble. Otherwise, he’ll have no problem killing them and moving on. Vampires in general are very big on the death penalty.
So, that’s a basic overview of Clyde. Ask away.
