By entering the realm of Vampire stories, I’ve been looking into the history of these creatures to see where the Dawn Fangs fit. At least that was the starting idea that lasted about an hour. It’s amazing how widespread the basic concept of a vampire is even without the exact name. This feeds my idea that everyone has their own thoughts on what makes a vampire and that you’re going to get criticized no matter what.
It’s just amazing that I’ve found vampires that are beautiful and others that are ugly. Some are undead and others are demons, which is a different category. Some drink blood and others drink spirit from a person’s breath. Some are immune to sunlight and others light up like a bonfire. There are those that sneak into bedrooms to seduce women while others troll high schools. I can keep going, but I think you get the point.
Personally, I’m rather flexible when it comes to a vampire. I’m more of a fan of the fangs, blood-sucking, and superhuman powers version. Yet, I can appreciate others because they’re fun to read about. The longer I think about it, the less I can pinpoint what it is about vampires that I find interesting. At best, I can say what I don’t like, but that’s fairly negative. One thing I did get bored with is the sun weakness because I’ve read more lore where it’s only a weakening agent instead of destruction. That’s one of the big influences for the Dawn Fangs as well as Vampire: The Masquerade.
So, what do other people look for in vampires?
