Vampirism, a disease that many scholars claim doesn’t really even exist, is an affliction spread via bite from humanoid to humanoid. Along with physical alterations, the disease imposes a variety of strange social restrictions on victims. This includes the need to be invited in in order to enter someone’s house, and difficulty crossing rivers, among others. Scholars that do believe in the disease’s existence believe there to be a supernatural component, meant to explain the strange behaviors and incredible abilities of a vampire.

There are generally two categories of vampires. The “purebloods” are a group of vampires that have been around for as long as vampirism has been around. The purebloods believe only certain mortals have the right to become a vampire, and will only sire a new vampire if the prospect meets a set of stringent requirements. This includes sharing their pureblood ideology.

The second category of vampires is known as the “afflicted.” They view vampirism as more of a bane than a boon. There is no organized group behind the afflicted, and this category includes all of those forced into vampirism haphazardly. They have no strict code, and each operate independently on their own time.

Difficult to kill

While a vampire takes stress and consequences as normal, they may not be taken out except by a wooden or silvered stake through the chest or by being forced to swallow garlic. After taken out, if proper precautions are not taken, a vampire will come back to life in a week’s time. Precautions include decapitating the body, salting the remains, and burying the pieces in separate places.

Unconventional social restrictions

Vampires compulsively must follow certain restrictions. There are many, but the following are some of them; Vampires may not enter someone’s building unless invited inside. Vampires may not cross running water. Vampires may not stand on consecrated grounds such as churches or temples. Vampires may not kill other vampires. Vampires may not approach religious symbols held out by an individual if the individual is praying.
