Yes, I know, sites unfortunately often have the ability to contradict eachother much too often.:-D
Anyway, as the official Medical Community just have begun to perform tests on Sanguinarians and people whom claim to be Vampires, there are still no
officially given answer as to why, unfortunately, more then rumoured causes and rumoured secrets that may or may not be true.
However, as far as accurate descriptions of real Sanguinarians concerns, I think that(Regarding Vampiric Studies), the section and description of the
Inheritor Cathegory 2, or The Night-Timer, is the description that comes closest to reality of how real Sanguinarians are, although the lifespan is
generally more "Human", even if it is very true that a majority of Sang's indeed seem to age more slowly.
However, nowadays a lot of people claim to be "True Sanguinarians" although they may not be, and many of them may just pretend to be, or living the
lifestyle of one, as they think it is "cool".
REAL Sanguinarism though, is a condition and nothing chosen. You can, however, ofcourse chose wether you want to "feed" or not and deny your
symptoms and traits, but you cannot chose to have or not to have the underlaying condition.
As for what causes it, the most common theory is that Sang's for some reason need to feed on the "Lifeforce" within the blood, aswell as some yet
unknown type of component, such as a hormone or chemical.
Many Sang's however feel that they ONLY feed from something in the blood alone, but don't know what. They just can't explain it, they just know
that they need it.
One of my own guesses, is that it may be some yet undiscovered Mineral or chemical, and that Sanguinarians simply suffer from a by Science yet
unrecognized condition or unknown form of "Anemia", which also may cause the individual to evolve certain symptoms aswell as traits, that gives the
person both disabilities aswell as benefits, compared to the average person.
