This is what I know, if it's true or not is debatable.
Vampires are not like the vampires you see in movies. In fact, many are very normal people. Or, at least they look and act the part. They all have
a reaction to the sun, but to what degree varies from vampire to vampire. They won't "burn up instantly" when exposed to sunlight, but plenty will
get harsh burns while some may react with what would appear to be a rash.
Vampires live their lives solitary, however several "safe houses" exist for several reasons. Some are making a new start and need a place to
"crash" while starting over. These safe houses are also social clubs. There's no "vampire news daily" so the news that pertains to vampires are
spread at these safe houses.
Feeding doesn't happen like the movies. Maybe it did one point in time but now the majority take blood that's been donated to the safe houses.
Much like a bar, walk in and order a pint of blood and you're set. Some vampires work within hospitals and other areas where they have access to
blood while some non-vampires who work at hospitals donate the blood to these safe houses. (However, it's rare.) Some non-vampires also donate blood
directly to the safe house, however that's even rarer.
Most vampires are on par with a non-vampire when it comes to strength. However, many have one and a half to two times the strength of a human. Very
rarely are they stronger then that. They can't fly or turn into bats. If they're cut, they'll bleed and heal just as a non-vampire would.
However, illnesses doesn't have the same effect on vampires as on humans. And for the most part, vampires are carriers without even knowing they
have an illness or sickness.
There's been legends within the vampire community that some "super vampires" have existed. They're typically characterized as having the ability
to fly. How they would fly is using "threads" of energy laced throughout the world that they could "grapple" onto. Some were very strong and the
likes. However, if any exist today is debatable.
Vampires do die, however they live a long life. A two hundred old vampire will look twenty-five. You can compare it to dog years, and we're
(non-vampires) are the dogs.
Vampire hunters are actually quite popular. You see how we non-vampires have depicted vampires throughout the ages, it's no surprise that they'd
want to stay hidden in fear of prosecution. (After all, we fear that we do not know.) But sometimes, a vampire will disobey the community rules (not
sure what those are, but you can guess what some are, like "don't tell anyone about safe houses" etc.) where the vampire community needs to hire in
someone from the outside. Vampire hunters are human as it's typically looked down upon when one vampire kills another. A vampire hunter will
typically use a gun, not crosses and stakes.
Now remember, this is what I have been TOLD. And like everything else, it may very well be false. So use this for entertainment purposes only.
