The Three Bloodlines

Lost Souls

The vampires of this novel are quite dissimilar to those of traditional lore. Rather than being transformed humans, they are a separate species that are born vampires. While most feed on blood, some find alternative sustenance (e.g., love and pain). There are also distinct differences between older and younger vampires. Older vampires have naturally sharp teeth, are sensitive to sunlight, and cannot eat or drink. Younger vampires have normal human teeth that must be filed, are insensitive to sunlight, and can both eat and drink. Brite's vampires also seem to lack many supernatural powers beyond quick healing, heightened sense, and abnormal strength. They can be killed if the heart or brain is destroyed. Female vampires can also be killed by childbirth.

Darren Shan Saga

Vampires of this saga only come out at night. Sunlight will kill a vampire, but only after three or four hours of exposure. They prefer to sleep in coffins by day, though they don't need to – any dark place will do. They can cross running water and are able to enter a house without being asked in. They do cast shadows, and they can see their reflection in mirrors, but they can’t be photographed. When it comes to feeding they do drink blood, usually by making a small cut with their nails (which are very sharp), but they only drink small amounts, and don't harm the people they drink from. They must drink a human's blood at least once a month to remain healthy. They can’t drink blood from cats or dogs, or from certain other animals, such as monkeys and frogs and snakes. If they do, the blood of these animals will make them sick. In some cases it will kill them. If a vampire drinks too much of a person's blood and kills them, he absorbs part of that person's spirit, and keeps some of their memories and personality traits alive. Shan’s vampires also posses abilities such as being able to breathe out a special gas which knocks people out and can hypnotise people (but this is rare, and they can usually only do it when they first become vampires, while their bodies are undergoing many strange changes). They can cure small cuts, by rubbing their spit into the wounds, move at incredibly fast speeds, which they call "flitting" and are much stronger than humans.

Much like Brite’s vampires, Shan’s vampires are not people who come back from the dead. However, unlike Brite’s vampires they are not a separate species either, but can turn humans into one of their own by pumping their own blood into the person. They are not evil by nature. Crosses and holy water do not hurt them. Neither does garlic. They can enter churches. These vampires don't live forever, but they do age at one-tenth the human rate. So, for every ten years that pass, they only grow one year older (half-vampires age at one-fifth the human rate). They can't change shape or fly, and they don’t bite people to suck their blood (they don’t have extra sharp fangs). Shan’s vampires are closely bonded with rats and bats and wolves, and some legends claim that vampires are descended from wolves, the same way that humans are descended from apes. A stake through the heart will kill a vampire, but so will a well-placed bullet, or fire, or electricity, or a very nasty fall. They are tougher than humans, but far from indestructible.

Vampire Diaries

The origin of this undead race began with the Original Family. Unlike Brite and Shan’s vampires, these vampires are not a separate race or transformed humans, but humans that died and were brought back as vampires. In order for a human to become a vampire, they must die within 24 hours after consuming vampire blood. The nature of the human's death is irrelevant, however the body and vital organs (head, heart, spine) must be preserved and able to function upon resurrection. Upon mortal death, the undead body will awaken in a state of transition. In order to complete the transition, within the next 24 hours, the vampire must consume an exceptional amount of human blood, or else they will die. The emotions of vampires are far more intense than the emotions of humans. Anger, depression, happiness, love, sadness, etc. are more powerful and much more overwhelming than when they were human. Whenever a vampire is faced with a powerful feeling, such as hunger, their faces transform into a paler complexion, while blood rushes to their eyes with small veins protruding around the area. Their canine teeth will lengthen into fangs, giving them a more predatory look to scare off or threaten their prey. They are said to be able to turn off their Humanity, and therefore their ability to feel negative emotions such as guilt if they find what they feel too overwhelming, Some vampires can do this, while others claim that the switch doesn't exist, or at least not for older vampires.

Blood is the main component of a vampire's diet. All vampires need to drink some kind of blood. Whether it is human or animal is up to the vampire. If a vampire does not drink blood for a considerable amount of time, their heart will try to pump blood through their veins, but once there’s none left, they will decompose into mummification. It is a very painful experience. Vampires can suppress their bloodlust to a degree by consuming alcohol. Note that these vampires enjoy stalking and toying with their victims before biting and drinking their blood. The hunt is often more enjoyable to them than the actual feeding. They are excellent predators as they can hunt their victims while remaining unseen. They posses certain powers, all of which are more potent as the vampire gets older and feeds on human blood (those feeding on animal blood will always be weaker than those feeding on human blood). For example, they are much stronger than humans and can accelerate their movements to cover short distances in an instant, faster than the human eye can see. When running across long distances, they appear as vibrating blurs of motion. They can hear whispered conversations, even ones in far off buildings, smell blood, and see in total darkness. They have the ability to control minds, plague people's dreams, and alter human memories. A vampire stops aging once turned. Upon their transformation, vampires then on become immune to all conventional illness, disease, virus and infection. They can snap their finger bones back into place after being broken and to fully recover from gunshots, stab wounds, and torso impalement. Of course, these vampires are not without weakness. When ingested, vervain causes a vampire to become severely weak and feverish. Also, if a vampire's skin is exposed to vervain, it can result in burning them. If a vampire is wounded by wood it will cause the vampire to become severely weak and if a vampire takes a wooden stake through its heart it will result in death. Any exposure to fire or sunlight will result in death, as will the act of removing a vampire's heart, dismembering or removing the head of a vampire. Vampires cannot enter a house without being invited in. If they are in the house without being invited in they will become disoriented.
