In the TV show Stargate Atlantis, the Wraith are a vampiric hive-based species that harvest the ‘life-force of other humanoid beings for nourishment through suckers on their right-hand palm.
How would you rate them in say, a scale of one to ten for being a Vampyr?
And do you think they should counted as a Vampyr species?
Reasons for and against, thank you.
The definition of wraith is, IAW google dictionary, "a ghost or ghost like image of someone, especially one seen shortly before or after their death". Vampire are NOT ghost and for sure, they are not death, unless a stake is inside their heart, which will be no return. Remember, you are referring to a TV show, which will be infiltrating fiction, discussed during a conference between directors. So, I give them a juicy ZERO.
Good reply markus666.
To me you have to feed from blood to be a vampire. A vampire may feed from subtle sources but they are connected to blood. Only a blood drinker can know that connection. Anything else is better labeled energy witch, wraith, lich, shadow, etc. So I give a 0 too.
I was going to check the encyclopedia of gouls goblins and trolls and other beings. But thought a better not chance it. So It is what you want to believe. It really is.-the forgotten
I'm going to have to go with no. They may have been inspired by vampires, I'll grant but beyond that I don't think vampire is what they were going for.
at first glance they appear to be energy taking vampires,
yet I don't think are a true representation of a vampire.
