Kinds of Vampires
There are several varieties of Vampires.
Psi Vampire -
a vampire that derives their power from non-physical energy, rather than blood. They drain energy from other life forces to replace their own. It is like recharging a battery.
vampires gain energy from drinking blood. They must drink fresh blood to gain energy, however, not dead blood (for obvious reasons).
Hybrids are a mix of both Psi and blood Vampires. They have many of the Psi abilities that a Psi vampire has, and can also gain energy from consuming blood. [They are the highest of ranks in the vampire world]
These are vampires that feed from the elements. For example, the energy created by a thunder storm. They actually feed of the power in the air that the storms create, much like a Psi vampire will feed from a human host.
These are vampires that feed on emotions, such as anger, fear, rage, happiness, etc. Some may even be known to start fights, just so they can feed from the emotions it causes.
These vampires feed on the energy generated by sex, or a sex act. The sexual vampire will feed off sexual energy, and the sexual need and dependence of their victims.
Social vampire is very much like a sexual vampire, except they feed on social energy, rather than sexual energy. A social vampire will tend to be the type of person who loves to be the center of attention, and cannot stand to be alone or ignored by others.
New Breed Vampires:
These type of vampires are similar to the vampires in the movie "Queen of the Damned", minus a few exaggerations. Classical vampires are "ageless", meaning their physical bodies do not age, but they can be killed.
These vampires are similar to the vampires in the movie "Blade", minus a few exaggerations. For example, they do not burst into flames upon exposure to sunlight, and they are not affected by garlic. Most are extremely sensitive to sunlight, however. Depending on the blood line, some Genetic vampires can only last 10 mins, while others can last up to a few hours. If they do go over the time they can safely walk around in the sun, their skin will start to burn severely, much like a chemical burn. Most of them live for over 300 years of age. However, I do not know their exact lifespan. I have heard mixed reports of Genetic vampires living from 350 - 900 years of age.
Inhertior Vampires TYPE 1:
These vampires are much like the Genetic vampires, except they are born. Like Sanguinarians, the vampire trait will lay dormant inside them until around the age of 13 - 26, when they awaken. When they body reaches the late stages of puberty, ir releases a chemical which awakens the vampire and begins many physical changes in the body. As a result of this, most Inheritors look around 19 - 20 years old their whole life. Most of the time the parents of the vampire will be human and vampire, or both vampires. There must be one vampire parent. Inheritor vampires live to around the age of 350-400 years old.
Inhertior Vampire TYPE 2:
Sanguinarians are the "mortal version" of the Inheritor vampires. They still require and crave blood, are sensitive to sunlight, and have many of the traits the Inheritor and Classical vampires have. However, Sanguinarians do not live much longer then the average human being.
These are mainly thought to be from a RPG clan, however, there are real Malkavian vampires out there. They are basically vampires who suffer from mental illnesses, or are considered to be insane by the rest of the community. However, they just have a different outlook on life, and most of the time they are not dangerous.
This type of vampire is almost exstinct. The reason for this is that they do not have the healing of the Genetic / Inheritor or Classical vampires. They do not have the speed, or even the life span of the ageless vampires. Infact, they are more human than vampire. They only live for about 100 years, they do not have the healing like the other "immortals", and their speed is the same as a human. However, they do have the need to feed, just like any other vampire, and are also extremely sensitive to sunlight.
When a human or vampire is turned, the body tries to fight the infection. In the case of the Noseratu vampires, the body got the upperhand. This caused the virus to alter itself, thus allowing for it to survive in the new host, causing the vampire's body to be extremely disfigured. From what I have heard, the Nosferatu are similar to the Classical or Genetic / Inheritor vampires. They are turned, not born.
Then there's the humans who THINK they're vampires:
These are humans who have a blood fetish, and who often get called vampires by other humans. They do not have a need to feed, but simply enjoy the taste of blood, or are excited by the sight, smell and taste of blood.
Wannabe's: are humans who want to be vampires. Most of the time they are 16-years-old kids who watch a lot of vampire movies, and think it would be "cool" to be a vampire. However, there are some people who are serious about wanting to be turned, who are in their 20's - 30's, and who know what they want and what they are getting themselves into. (aka, people who go "vampire" because of the Twilight book/movie, and all the other vampire novels.)
Then there are the non-Humanoid vampires :
And a variety of mythological Vampires like the Kappa
Blood carries many diseases, and contrary to the mythos perpetuated by Hollywood, Vampires are NOT immortal, and we can get sick and die. We are NOT immune to bloodborne diseases. A good thing to remember is that if something is contagious in any form, whether it be through blood, sneezing, sexual contact, coughing, touch, anything, it can be passed very easily through sanguine feeding. Here are a few of the more common diseases that can be passed through the blood :
AIDS, Brucellosis, Chicken Pox (Varicella), Chlamidia, Colds,Diptheria, Food Poisoning, Gonorrhea, Hepatitis (A-B-C-D-G, yes there are 5 types of hepatitis), Herpes, Influenza, Legionnaires' Disease, Malaria, Measles, Meningitis, Mumps, Rubella, Scarlet Fever,Shingles, Spotted Fever, Strep Throat, Syphilis, Toxic Shock Syndrome, Tuberculosis, Typhus, Warts, and I am sure there are others as well.
The danger is not only through the blood. Donors can end up with scars, nerve damage, infections, anemia, etc. Both donors and vampires should get tested. The tests to request from your Doctor are: CBC, Chem 20 (chemical profile or SMAC), VDRL (STD profile), and HIV.
The Red Cross does not allow more than one donation of 1 pint (473.18ml) of blood to be given per any 8 week (56 days) period.
1ml = 1cc.
5cc = one teaspoon.
Two teaspoons of blood per day equal 70ml of blood per week, 280ml per month, and 560ml per two month period. This is 86.82ml's more than the recommended amount allowed by the Red Cross for the same period of time.
If you are Sanguine (or a donor), always look out for the health of your donor (or yourself if you are the donor), and watch for symptoms of anemia, fatigue, problems concentrating, vampiric tendencies (does not mean they are a vampire, just means they have been over fed from), mood swings, loss of consciousness, irritablity, poor coordination, dizzyness, headache, nausea, pale skin, etc.brain damage, organ damage, coma, and or death. Remember, severe blood loss can cause brain damage, organ damage, coma, and or death.
Blood is a natural emetic, in other words, it will make you throw up. Also, it is possible to have antibodies in your bloodstream that will make you very sick if you consume blood from a particular individual(s). Every donor has a different makup, you may be allergic to the blood of one donor, but not that of another. Listen to your bodies. Watch out for severe stomach upsets from even minute amounts of your donor's blood. You can kill yourself by drinking blood incompatible with you. Allergic reactions rarely happen the first time you are exposed to the allergen. An allergy can crop up at any time, even after years of being exposed, so always trust your body's signals.
Only a small percentage of the community NEEDS to feed this way. There are other much safer ways to feed. Psy feeding and Elemental feeding are the safest methods, as there is not risk of disease. You must be sure to filter the energy you get from others, and as always, be ethical. Ask permission if you are going to do a deep feeding. Ambient feeding (feeding off the energy cast off by many people, such as at a Church service, or in the mall) is ok, if the method works for you. Elemental feeding is fairly easy as nature and its energy is all around us. In other words, if you do not NEED to Sang feed,
Proper Sanguine Feeding Techniques
Hygiene is the most important factor after proper testing of both the Vampire and the Donor. Always be sure to properly clean the donor site BEFORE breaking the skin.
Antiseptics are a diverse class of drugs which are applied to skin surfaces or mucous membranes for their anti-infective effects. This may be either bactericidal or bacteriostatic. Their uses include cleansing of skin and wound surfaces after injury, preparation of skin surfaces prior to cutting. Antiseptics are also used for disinfection of inanimate objects, including instruments and furniture surfaces.
Commonly used antiseptics for skin cleaning include benzalkonium chloride, chlorhexidine, hexachlorophine, iodine compounds, mercury compounds, alcohol and hydrogen peroxide. Other agents which have been used for this purpose, but have largely been supplanted by more effective or safer agents, include boric acid and volatile oils such as methyl salicylate (oil of wintergreen.) Mercury compounds should be avoided because they can cause allergic reactions.
Benzalkonium chloride and hexachlorophine are used primarily as hand scrubs or face washes. Benzalkonium may also find application is a disinfecting agent for instruments, and in low concentration as a preservative for drugs including ophthalmic solutions. Benzalkonium chloride is inactivated by organic compounds, including soap, and must not be applied to areas which have not been fully rinsed.
Iodine compounds include tincture of iodine and povidone iodine compounds. Iodine compounds have the broadest spectrum of all topical anti-infectives, with action against bacteria, fungi, viruses, spores, protozoa, and yeasts. Iodine tincture is highly effective, but its alcoholic component is drying and extremely irritating when applied to abraided (scraped or rubbed) skin. Povidone iodine, an organic compound, is less irritating and less toxic, but not as effective. Povidone iodine has been used for hand scrubs and disinfection of surgical sites. Aqueous solutions of iodine have also been used as antiseptic agents, but are less effective than alcoholic solutions and less convenient to use that the povidone iodine compounds.
Hydrogen peroxide acts through the liberation of oxygen gas. Although the antibacterial activity of hydrogen peroxide is relatively weak, the liberation of oxygen bubbles produces an effervescent action, which may be useful for wound cleansing through removal of tissue debris. The activity of hydrogen peroxide may be reduced by the presence of blood and pus. The appropriate concentration of hydrogen peroxide for antiseptic use is 3%, although higher concentrations are available.
The basic method for any sanguine feeding is as follows:
1. Ask permission, or give permission - do not assume
2. Set Up - includes cleaning the area, the instruments, opening packages, laying the items out, washing your hands, brush your teeth, etc.
3. Gloves are recommended.
4. Prepare the site, use an antiseptic wash on the area...at least 2-3 times the size of the anticipated cut.
5. Use your preferred method of breaking the skin....see below.
6. After feeding, immediately clean the wound with more antiseptic, put antibiotic ointment and a bandage over the wound.
7. Clean up the instruments and the area...don't want to inadvertently roll over onto a scalpel blade...
The following are the preferred methods used for safe sanguine feeding. I will go into detail for each of them.
Diabetic Lancet - Simply prime the lancet device, place it against the side of the fingertip and press the release button. Squeeze the finger in a downward motion towards the tip to bring the blood to the surface. Aspirin and alcohol tend to thin the blood, as does heat and friction. Remember to not drink and use Tylenol together, as it can cause damage to the kidneys with only one occurrence.
Sterilized single use scalpel - After cleaning the area, hold the skin taught, and make a surface incision not more than about 1 inch long. Some like to make a second incision to create an "X" in the skin. This does allow more blood to come to the surface, but is also more likely to scar. The depth of the cut should be quite shallow. You are only trying to cut the top layer of the skin. Bleeding will start in a few moments. Remember to throw away the blade after it is used.
Sterilized multi- use scalpel, Sterilized Exacto blade, Sterilized single edge razor blade - Always sterilize your instruments. An autoclave is ideal, but not practical, boiling for 5 minutes then using tongs to remove the blades followed by alcohol on the blade right before using it is second best, and using alcohol alone is third. Do not use the instruments on more than one individual. Use a different set for each if you have more than one donor.
Venipuncture - should not be attempted except by a trained phlebotomist.

Biting as a sanguine feeding technique is NOT recommended. The human mouth is filled with bacteria. The use of fake or created fangs can cause damage similar to a cat bite, essentially creating a puncture wound. Puncture wounds appear innocuous on the surface, but the underlying injury goes deep. Puncture wounds inject bacteria into the skin, and the deep, narrow wound is difficult to clean. Any bite that punctures the skin CANNOT be treated with over-the-counter (OTC) remedies. The bacteria can produce such complications as septic arthritis, tenosynovitis, meningitis, and infections of the lymphatic system. Live disease-causing bacteria within the bloodstream and tissues cause complications far from the wound site. Such complications include meningitis, brain abscesses, pneumonia and lung abscesses, and heart infections, among others. These complications can be fatal. Deep bites or bites near joints can damage joints and bones, causing inflammation of the bone and bone marrow or septic arthritis. Bite wounds are also much more likely to scar.
antiseptic wash - swabs plus, tincture of iodine, alcohol/alcohol prep pads, etc.

Spells to Become a Vampire
By J.L.N. Lewitin
Natural magic uses the actual reality of the world to create similar effects in dissimilar places. Using these principals to become a vampire requires a shamanistic approach. In this method ritual and concentration are combined to try and commune with the universe in such a way that you gain an understanding of how to affect the change you want. In the case of a vampire you are trying to eject the soul from the body, while finding a new and viable source of energy. This is a difficult thing to accomplish, and can take many months or years to accomplish.
The rejection of ones soul from ones body by choice is theoretically impossible, so this method generally has to be preformed on others. The rituals used are very similar to those used to create a zombie, and often result in a creature with similar intelligence and lack of self will.
The specific actions and thoughts necessary to perform this act are going to be very specific to your culture and particular mind set. As such the best way to learn this procedure is to do it, spending hours in concentration, and using rituals which are meaningful to you to gain a better understanding of the truths of the universe around you. Some methods you may want to try are rhythmic dancing, the use of spiritual journeys or fasts, and most important a dedication to being more aware of the nature of your own soul, in order to gain a better understanding of your relation to the spiritual world. The use of a teacher or shaman will greatly speed this process up, as they will be able to evaluate you from their own more enlightened position, and determine the methods that would work best for you individually.
One thing to note is that when creating a vampire, it is not always necessary to infuse them with a need for blood. This illegal and dangerous habit is also very difficult to develop, as the synthesis of blood and or souls into life energy is very complex. It is often easier to create a vampire which is fueled by chemical or physical energy.
MULTI-VERSE SPELLS FOR BECOMING A VAMPIRE
In the multi-verse theory of magic, existence is composed of an infinite number of universes, within which every possibility exists. The hallmark of this method is the use of perceptual changes in yourself, to try and enter a universe in which your desired effect is true. The more unlikely an event, the more obscure the universe it exists in, and the harder it is to get there.
Becoming a vampire with this method will require the use of deep concentration and or chanting. This process is necessary to change your own perceptions enough such that you actually begin to shift your physical being towards a universe in which you are a vampire.
In using this method it is important to keep your mind open and to be ready to believe in the possibility of anything. This has to be balanced with your ability to perceive the reality of the dimension you are in at any given time. Just believing you are a vampire is not enough, you actually have to change the way your eyes see things, and the way and your mind understands them.
As usual the methods which will work best are going to have to be individually tailored to your mind and situation. A teacher will help this greatly, because they will be able to evaluate you and make suggestions from a trained position relative to you. However, as you become more proficient at this method it may become difficult to remain in a dimension in which you know the teacher, and as such you may require several teachers over the course of your training.
As far as the drinking of blood, there are many dimensions in which you are a vampire that doesn't require blood and has found a much easier method of taking in energy. As such you should try and steer yourself towards these specific dimensions. This is for your own safety and ease, as murder is not acceptable in almost any society.
USE OF MAGICAL CREATURES OR ITEMS TO BECOME A VAMPIRE
Sometimes force, or balance magic has been used to create an item which is very dense in energy and vampire consciousness. Vampire consciousness simply refers to thoughts or ideas about vampires, or thoughts of vampires. When this combination exists in an item, it may be used by a willing creature to invoke vampirism in their own bodies. There may be a word of power which is uniquely tied into the item and activates it, however generally they are used by concentrating on your desire. Occasionally these items are even powerful enough to be used to turn others into vampires, although this generally requires the use of someone with an extremely powerful or trained will.
There is also a theoretical possibility that a demon or spirit can give part of their power to a creature to allow them to change themselves into a vampire. This is different from regular demon induced vampirism in that the demon does not in whole become a part of the creature, but instead only a little bit of the demons power is used to initiate the reaction. This speculation has arisen because many demons have offered this power to humans and other creatures, in exchange for the use of the expelled soul. However in every reported case the demon has betrayed the person as soon as they agreed, taking not only their soul but their bodies and minds as well.

The Vampire Codex
I. The Kheprian Charge
We are the many-born. We are the immortal. We have been known by many names
throughout the ages, though few have understood the truth of our existence.
Endlessly, we die and are reborn, changed yet unchanging throughout the ages. We move
from lifetime to lifetime, taking up bodies as garments.
We are watchers and we are wanderers.
We seek knowledge and understanding above all.
Long ago we strove the sunder the life of our body from our roving minds, for it grounded
us. It held us back. It bound us to a single span of days. Through a ritual of death and
rebirth, we severed our living ties and gained immortality.
Now we are freed of the life of the body, but we are irrevocably tied to the life we cut
away. It sustains us and empowers us.
We thirst for life and we feed It is our greatest weakness and our greatest prize.
Eternal, we wander the aeons, moving to the rhythm of our own inner tides.
Freed from the most fundamental of cycles, we are nevertheless beings bound by cycles.
Our heightened awareness of ourselves and the world around us forces us to acknowledge
natural rhythms that others simply ignore.
As the day waxes and wanes, we can feel it, and we know that the true realm of magick is
the night, for that is when we wax in power. As the moon grows gravid and slim, we feel
it, and we know, too, that there are more complex rhythms of power tied to her phases.
As the wheel of the year turns round, we feel the wild times, the apogees and nadirs of
The dark time of the year is our time, as are the threshold times when we celebrate
Samhain and Beltane. These days are our Im Kheperu, the Day of Transformation, and our
Im Sekhemu, the Day of Double Power. As beings poised on the threshold of many things,
the energies of these holidays affect us profoundly. At these times we enjoy our greatest
power, but in balance, we also pay a stronger price. Waves of energy rise and fall within
us, and when in their grip, our hunger burns.
Forever, we are active elements moving through passive worlds.
Our rules are our own. We accept no others. We define who we are and what we shall
become. There is nothing in our lives which we cannot control if we but choose to.
Our memories are carried like gems within our souls. Over the lifetimes they build and
crystallize until we can take them out and gaze upon them as we choose.
Life sustains us, but death defines us. We are the many-born. Our conception was in
death, and each death now brings us a new beginning, forever without end.
III. Catalysts of Change
Everything we touch, we change. We take in energy constantly, and although this is how
we feed, this energy is never destroyed. Through us, it is transformed. It changes states. It
resonates to a higher level.
Yet every birth is accompanied by struggle and pain. Every rebirth is just as painful. It may
seem that we bring destruction, chaos, and turmoil to all those around us. And in a sense
we do. But the changes are always for the better, even though the initial change may seem
Change is terrible. It tears away what we've grown comfortable with. It destroys what we
find familiar, stable, and simple, leaving uncertainty in its wake. But to face uncertainty
and to thrive is to become stronger. Everything must change or die. We are active
participants in this universal mystery.
Every person that we come into contact with, no matter how casually, is altered.
Wherever we go, change will follow. Our dynamic spirits stretch out all around us, and the
wake we leave in our passing is like ripples on the ocean. Only the ripples we cause can
become tidal waves.
As beings on a threshhold state, we are living embodiments of the dynamic
complimentarity that keeps the universe in constant motion. This is our burden. Yet this
also is our purpose. In the gray area between two polar opposites lies revelation. We feed
upon all around us. Yet we can also harness that energy to heal. We tear away and bring
destruction, yet we also nurture new growth. This is our nature, the mystery of who we
There is no rebirth without destruction. Light only blinds without shadow to throw it into
relief. Understanding comes from balancing all these things within the Self. We are that
Balance. We affect it, and it affects us. We are facilitators of the universal flow. We must
accept this, and never fear to move with that flow
We are neither wholly born nor wholly made what we are. The choice for us to become
was made long ago. From that time onward, we have been reborn again and again,
carrying within us in every lifetime the seed of what we are.
Sometimes we forget ourselves, and wander our lives like sleepwalkers, only half-aware of
our true natures. Yet sleeping or awakened, we are born with the potential for
Awakening is a process of expanded awareness. Anyone with gifts and talents of a subtle
nature undergoes an awakening in their life. This is when they come into their own, finally
accepting what has been latent within them since birth. For us, the process can be
traumatic, as the existence we awaken to opens us up to a host of strange thoughts,
sensations, and experiences which lie outside the limits accepted even by other Awakened.
Awakening is the alchemical forge in which we are transformed from dross to spiritual
gold. It is the recalling of a part of our Selves that has become clouded over time. It is
becoming more than the little self of this lifetime, grasping the totality of who we were and
who we are to be -- our Essential Self.
Some of us have greater potential than others. Some are born with an instinctive
understanding of their potential and they may gradually come to realize that potential on
their own. They recall without prompting and their power is great.
The bulk of our number are born ignorant to what they are. As they grow and mature,
there are subtle hints of the latent power, but fear and self-doubt generally keep these from
being acknowledged and accepted. Such as these must be awakened to their true selves by
another of our number already familiar to our ways.
There are two rituals of initiation. The Lesser Initiation is an exchange of feeding which
occurs between the teacher and the initiate. The initiate is drained deeply, often for the
first time. This heightens his awareness of his energy body and will often catalyze him into
realizing his potential in the next few days. The sensations that this process inspires are
usually too intense to ignore or explain away. If fed from deeply enough, his instincts will
overcome him and he will feed from others in order to replenish his depleted system.
The Greater Initiation involves a ritual death and rebirth which occurs on both the physical
and spiritual levels for the initiate. It is visionary and shamanic in nature and forces the
initiate to face himself and all that he has been within the boundaries of his own soul. Like
all deaths and rebirths, this ritual strips away old identities and assumptions. The little self
of this lifetime is subsumed into the greater Self, and the initiate is irrevocably changed.
This rite is reserved for only the strongest minds, for any who are weak or filled with fear
may not survive the initiation. Their minds can be blown away like dry autumn leaves in
the face of the totality of who they are.
We often associate with the Awakened or with those who hover upon the threshold of
Awakening. We prefer the company of those who can interact at least to some degree
with the level of reality that is our constant daily experience.
By our very natures we Awaken those around us. Even those not of our kind can be
affected by the transformative effects of our presence. We draw out latent powers and
provide a burden of proof for individuals who have otherwise rejected their own natures
due to self-doubt. We can use this intentionally if we choose, though it will always occur
to some degree, whether intentional or not.
Sometimes we mistake a Potential of our own kind merely for one of the Awakened. If
such an unrecognized Potential is fed from, the effect, though unintentional, is equivalent
to the Lesser Initiation. The Potential feels himself undergo a change and is driven to feed
from others. Such accidents cannot be abandoned. Confused as to their true nature,
ignorant of their power, they wield that power nonetheless and can cause much damage to
themselves and others if left to struggle on their own.
Still others have Potential, but it is too weak to ever fully be realized in this lifetime.
Others are too unstable to survive the initiation. They are best left to sleep so they will
come to maturity in their own time. If forced to awaken, they are merely shadows of us --
weak in power, unstable in mind, whose powers are likely to fade unless constantly put to
use or manipulated by their mentor.
Sometimes a feeding vessel may manifest the symptoms of vampirism, but this is merely a
sympathetic state brought about through prolonged or obsessive contact with one of our
own. Such a one's natural reserves are depleted to a point where they cannot recover their
vitality on their own. Given time, however, and separated physically and / or emotionally
from the dominating personality, such a person will gradually recover and return to a
normal, non-vampiric state. In some cases, the afflicted person does not wish to give up
the state of sympathetic vampirism. If the person understands even a little of what has
happened to him and wants the condition to continue, he can maintain this quasi-vampiric
state indefinitely and may even eventually come to be mistaken for one of our number as
he will accept that he is nothing else.
VI. Other Awakened
There are many beyond ourselves who have the potential for power. They also undergo a
process like our Becoming which consists primarily of a expanded awareness and an
awakening to their greater Self. This commonly occurs with the onset of puberty, although
it may happen later or earlier, depending on nature and circumstance. These are commonly
referred to as the Awakened. Their ways and their powers are diverse.
Like us, many of the Awakened follow a particular archetype. They use this archetype as a
symbol to define themselves and their powers. They have a fundamental connection to the
energy of this archetype, and although human in body, they are something more in spirit.
Angels, witches, the Fey, Otherkin, Shifters, these are but a few of the archetypes that may
be followed. Like ourselves, it may be that such individuals are responsible for inspiring
much of the folklore that gave rise to the archetype in the first place and now, in a less
spiritually open time, they have only the buried grains of truth lingering in the folklore to
fall back upon to define themselves. Like us, they are human and Other. They are spiritual
travelers who take up bodies as garments. We should always treat them with respect, for
ultimately, we serve common goals.
You will be attracted to the Awakened in much the same manner that you are drawn to
Potentials of our kind. Much is unspoken and unconscious. Trust that your greater Self is
guiding you, for it knows and understands what may not always be accessible to your
Like ourselves, the Awakened can perceive and manipulate the many layers of reality.
They call themselves by many names and they follow many diverse paths. Most of the
Awakened draw their power from the positive, generative forces of reality. Thus, they
may fear us when they first encounter us. This fear arises from ignorance. Though we are
darkness and they are light, we all work toward the same goal. We each in our way bring
awareness to the world, catalyzing those with potential toward Awakening.
When we come upon one who is verging upon Awakening, it is our duty to guide and
instruct them. Do not mistake every Awakened being for a Potential of our kind. Nor
should you attempt to push those not of our kind into accepting our ways and our arts.
This way is not for everyone, and no one should ever be forced into following it. Be aware
that some may resonate with more than one archetype, and these are the most difficult of
all to identify and to educate. They may have much in common with us, but there will be
limits to what we can explain and help them understand. In all cases, serve your function
as a catalyst, helping them toward their path but not seeking to define that path for them.
Ultimately, each person must walk their path alone.
You are responsible for teaching and guiding those of our kind whom you have awakened
to their true natures. You must guide them through their transformation, helping to ease
the transition from one level of awareness to the next.
Those who you guide in this way will be as your children and will share a deep bond with
you like no other.
You will know their very heart and soul. The mysteries of their Essential Self will be
unveiled to you. No distance will separate your awareness of them.
The link goes both ways, and they can communicate with you and know your feelings
when they choose. You may use the link to feed from them at a distance, to borrow their
strength as your own.
Their thoughts will be yours to know; their actions will fall under your control if you so
choose -- but do not seek to abuse this power you wield over them for as dearly as they
may love you and revere you while under your control, they will just as thoroughly hate
and revile you once that control has slipped away.
VIII. The Beacon
Our kind has ways of recognizing its own. Often this recognition occurs on an unspoken
level and is very subtle, so you must learn to trust your impulses and allow your greater
Self to guide you.
Especially in the unawakened, this recognition manifests itself as a Beacon which calls us
to them so that they may realize their Potential. The Beacon calls to us on a very basic
level, and often speaks purely to our unconscious minds. Thus we find ourselves
inexplicably attracted to a Potential, stricken with a sudden fascination for him and a need
to draw him closer to us. If we listen to our perceptions and trust our instinctual reactions,
we can refine this awareness of others until we can consciously pick out the Beacon in
those around us. Sometimes, even after such a refinement has been achieved, the Beacon
still slips past our conscious actions and we find ourselves simply responding to its
unspoken pull. The pull of the Beacon drives us to feed from the Potential, thus
awakening him to the most basic aspect of his hidden nature.
We must learn to recognize the Beacon in others, to judge its varying degrees of strength
so that we may go about the awakening in a deliberate manner. We must learn to
recognize when it is appropriate to awaken a Potential and when that awakening will bring
only grief to all involved.
We must let our judgment rule us in this matter and we must sometimes resist the merely
instinctual pull of the Beacon for awakenings that are not appropriate. Not all of those
with Potential are fit for the awakening, and if we act rashly we may unwittingly loose the
beast of our destruction through a careless move.
The Beacon is present to a limited degree in those who have already become. It is strong
enough for us to recognize one of our number when we come into contact with him, even
if this recognition is the barest hint of perception.
We may also be known by our distinct auras: deep purple sometimes shot through with
red, surrounded by a nimbus of black or grey mist. The outer layer often stretches into
tendrils that extend far beyond our physical forms, reaching out and feeding from those
around us. To those who can perceive that level of reality, we often appear to be a nexus
of such tendrils.
The tendrils are varying shades of grey, with a smooth, rope-like appearance. They are not
perceptibly present in everyone; they can be filaments so fine even the most experienced
seer will have difficulty perceiving them.
We are often noted for our pallor, but more often it is the intensity of our eyes which gives
us away. We tend to be thin with a powerful and often intimidating presence which wraps
about us like a shroud.
Our hands are often very cold. This is a cold which saps heat away, and lingers where it
has been touched. It is a symptom of our constant, low-level energy draw. If we
consciously channel energy through our hands, they grow very warm. It is not the
temperature which is important: it is the responsiveness of our physical bodies to subtle
effects that is distinctive.
We are sensitive to strong odors and tastes, as our senses are often acute. Many of us can
hear in a more than normal human range. Some of this is physical hearing, some may be
limited clairaudience, as our subtle senses extend far beyond our physical selves. We are
almost always much stronger and quicker than we look, for the body is merely a vessel for
a much more powerful Will.
We are sensitive to light and to the excessive heat of the sun. This is symptomatic of our
acute sensitivity to energy. The radiation of the sun is an overwhelming form of energy
which our systems have trouble assimilating. Many of us burn very easily in the sun.
Almost all of us are made sick by it. When required to be out in full daylight, we develop
headaches, nausea, dizziness. The light saps us of our strength, leaving us exhausted and
drained. The night is our natural dominion, for in the mythic imagination, it is the realm of
secrets, of magick, and all that the day-lit world rejects.
We carry ourselves with a proud determination and can seem arrogant, detached, and
cold. We are often of a predatory nature, and with difficulty avoid using those around us.
To most we seem unapproachable. There is an air about us which seems somehow to set
us apart. Even those ignorant to our true natures react to this, treating us with respect,
attraction or fear.
The unawakened stare then look away from us and are unable to meet our gaze. They are
disturbed by our presence but rarely will they understand what disturbed them or why.
Instinctually, they fear us.
The Awakened will know us for what we are, though they may hesitate to put a name to
it. Still, on an unspoken level they will understand and attempt to define us through the
filters of their individual beliefs and symbol systems.
Children will know us, though rarely do they fear. In their innocence, they have not yet
learned to doubt, and thus are open to a clear perception of the world around them.
X. Subtle Body Changes
To the Awakened who can perceive energy or the subtle body, we may appear flawed or
incomplete. This difference in our energy bodies can be mistaken as illness or disease. In
truth, most of our kind partially or completely lack an energy center. This is most often the
one located in the belly, just below the navel. It is because we lack this center that we need
to feed, for our subtle bodies cannot sustain the energy necessary to maintain our physical
forms. There is a schism between our body and our spirit, and while this schism places us
in our threshold state, it creates weaknesses along with many benefits.
Our physical connection to life is thin and weak. In those of our number who have not
become, this may manifest itself in actual physical debility or illness. Severe allergies,
immune system malfunctions, and other birth defects are not uncommon. If they gain
awareness of their powers and at the very least learn how to feed, they may learn to
compensate for these weaknesses. However, once you have learned to compensate, if you
are unable to feed enough to sustain yourself, this weakness will return with greater
severity than before.
Often well-meaning Awakened will offer to heal you so that you need not suffer the
drawbacks associated with this lacking. Their efforts should be discouraged for they do
not understand our nature. The absence of this center defines us as what we are and is
carried over from lifetime to lifetime. It cannot and should not be "fixed." In this respect,
vampirism is a condition of the spirit, and it is the spirit which predisposes the body to
physically manifest the characteristics associated with vampirism.
Occasionally damage can be done to the subtle body of another that will partially or
completely destroy an energy center. Such damage may be more permanent than the
physical flesh, and thus will be carried over from lifetime to lifetime. This damage is most
often the result of an accident, yet it produces much the same results as that which we
Those who have been damaged in this way will find that they need to feed. Their subtle
bodies can no longer sustain their physical forms, and if life energy is not taken from an
outside source, they will suffer debilitating effects associated with the lost or damaged
Though these are not our children, they are technically of our number. It is our duty to
help and guide them in understanding what has happened to them and what this may
entail. There is however hope that such individuals will eventually heal on a subtle level,
and thus recover from their state of vampirism.
Our strength and our weakness is life. We depend upon the vital force, for lacking enough
of it ourselves, we are forced to glean it from others.
In this we are self-serving and self-preserving, though good and evil cannot be applied to
our state. We know what we need, and we know we must take it, sometimes to the
detriment of others. This is an unavoidable fact of reality.
We are predators at heart, even though we are physically indistinguishable from our prey.
The spirit within us sets us apart. Our perceptions, our passions, and our powers make us
strangers among ordinary men. Even if we refuse to act upon our more destructive
impulses, we keenly feel the difference between us and those who do not share what we
are. No matter how hard we try to blend in, we can never truly belong.
This is a blessing and a curse. The lives we live are fuller and more dynamic than anything
most others might imagine. The levels of reality we are privy to make the world a
profound and wondrous place. Yet there are few who can share our insights. Thus, we
tend to be solitary, feeding alone, rarely interacting with those who would not and could
not understand. Our utter separateness drives us to seek out companionship among our
own kind for it is here only that we find true acceptance and understanding.
We may find friends and allies among the Awakened, but they can never truly understand
what we are and what that means within the context of so many different lives. There are
some experiences they can neither accept nor share, and thus there is always something
lacking when in their company.
Thus we should always treasure those who are of our nature. They are our companions
throughout the many, many long years. Time and again, we will find one another, for the
bonds between us are never broken or worn thin.
We can love and hate one another with great passion, yet we are forever loyal to our own.
XII. Basic Feeding
We may gain what we need through feeding, drawing in life as we would breath.
When we are the center of attention of a whole group, we may feed upon the emotions of
those around us as they are directed toward us. Those involved in the group are unlikely
to notice the loss of energy, and oftentimes feeding in this way only increases their focus
This is an activity many Potentials engage in, though they do not often consciously
understand what it is they do. This is one of the main reasons many Potentials are drawn
toward the stage. Many become actors, storytellers, musicians or other performers so that
they may achieve the kind of focused attention they crave.
For those who have Become, this is a pleasing activity, but rarely satisfies more than the
most superficial of needs.
Even when a group is not focused upon us, we may feed generally upon them. No physical
contact is necessary: we simply expand our awareness to encompass the group around us
as if throwing out a net, or visualize ourselves at the center of a whirlpool, drawing
everything in. Thus our energy extends beyond ourselves and, like embracing good
friends, we pull bits of everyone about us into ourselves, breathing them deeply.
This is less satisfying than a focused group draw but can sustain us in a time of desperate
need when no other option is available. Places with high energy and many emotions are
preferable for this activity, and thus we are often drawn to dance halls and clubs. Once
again, this manner of feeding is subtle and easily overlooked, and those being fed from are
unlikely to notice the loss. High energy places often have enough ambient energy floating
loosely in the atmosphere that you are truly taking little from any of the individual people
The two above techniques may be focused variably upon a single person for a slightly
more intense effect. The individual in question does not have to be aware of your
activities, and they do not even have to be close for you to feed from them. With
concentration and focus, you can easily reach out across a room and draw off energy from
a specific individual. At most, this person will feel a little tired from what you have taken,
but most people are so desensitized to the subtle reality that they will pass this off as
ordinary fatigue, stress, or too much drink.
Taking from unawakened individuals has its drawbacks, however. Certainly there are more
of them, and they are far less likely to notice what you are doing than Awakened
individuals. However, they are almost wholly ignorant to the energy that courses through
them and they do little or nothing to cultivate this aspect of their spiritual selves, and so
the quality of their energy is very poor.
Feeding from the Awakened is far more rewarding, as they cultivate their energy bodies,
and so the quality of energy is purer and more intense. However, feeding without
permission from the Awakened runs you the risk of getting caught. Many also perceive
this as a psychic attack, and your actions will rarely be responded to kindly.
To this end, willing partners are the most advisable as they will not retaliate for anything
which they consider an infringement on their person.. Having a willing partner who is
Awakened is more fulfilling anyway, since the more feedback you receive from your
targets, the more satisfying the drain, especially if they have some awareness of what is
happening to them. It is like making love: the best partner is the one who responds to your
touch, whose reactions guide you in increasing their experience of the exchange.
Single target, long-distance draws are convenient for establishing a connection to someone
in order to draw them closer to you but before it is socially appropriate to engage in actual
In general, energy coupled with some strong emotion is more fulfilling than simple energy
alone. One of the most intense emotions we can feed upon is fear, but the negative
repercussions associated with inspiring this emotion make it inadvisable to pursue. The
next most intense emotion is passion or ecstasy, and this can be very fulfilling for both you
and your partner. Any emotion that is transformative in its power and depth pleasantly
satisfies our needs.
We may also feed upon energy gathered for religious purposes. This will sustain us in a
time of need when no other sources are available, though often it is meager fare.
When people gather to worship, they generate a strong force of energy but few, if any of
them, ever know how to properly direct it. Thus it curls up like smoke directionlessly
through their place of worship or clings around those items which served as the foci for
the group's attentions.
Whether we sit in on the actual worship or appear shortly thereafter, we may affect a
general draw using the net technique which pulls the undirected energy into ourselves. The
objects which were focused upon by the crowd can also be drained of the energy endowed
in them, either from a distant, general draw or from the more direct drain of physical
Many find such activities scandalous and unforgivable, but in truth the groups that can be
preyed upon in this fashion have little awareness that they have been victimized and suffer
not from our predations. The energy of their worship was undirected anyway and would
dissipate eventually on its own, having served to benefit no one.
XIII. Breath and Life
We can adequately feed from a distance, extending our subtle bodies and our wills beyond
the limits of our physical bodies in order to touch the energies of others. Such techniques
can be satisfying in their own right, yet we are not solely beings of energy. We are a
balance of spirit and matter, as are all things, and so contact with more than just energybodies
is necessary for us to feel truly satisfied.
Physical contact coupled with that extension of our Selves that creates energy contact is
the main method used to feed.
The primary centers for achieving such contact are our hands and our mouths. The hands
may tingle when used for this purpose. Our touch at this time is intense, often very cold
but also shiveringly pleasant. As we draw forth more energy, the cold gives way to
warmth which in turn gives way to heat. The heat is a byproduct of the energy exchange.
In extreme cases, we may leave traces of our feeding, even when feeding solely with our
hands. We can draw blood up through the very pores or leave barely discernible bruises at
our points of contact.
We draw energy in like breath: this is a controlled breathing technique which encompasses
much more than our lungs. Even when the primary focus is our hands or if our target is far
removed from us physically, this breathing helps focus our intake of energy. It is one slow,
sustained inhalation, almost like smoking a cigarette or sucking air through a very small
straw. If done correctly, it will seem that your are breathing in far beyond the capacity of
your lungs. Like breath, energy is drawn in, filling us with life and vitality. You will feel it,
like a rush, spread through you, tingling down to your fingers and toes. You will achieve
an altered state of consciousness while doing this, where body and energy body are both
clearly perceived. Time may seem drawn out and distance will be altered. Your
perceptions can expand to encompass a whole room, seeing everything inside and out all
Like breath, energy may also be expelled, exhaled into the person you choose to give it to.
This secondary function of drawing energy is used in healing. It is the necessary
counterbalance to our function of taking energy. We are creatures of balance above all
else, and even as we can sap the energy of those around us, so too can we build it up in
order to help and heal.
XIV. Assimilating Energy
When we feed, we must take the life energy of others. It cannot be given. It can be offered
freely, but still we must do the taking. This is fundamental to the way in which we must
process the energy for use ourselves.
When we draw in energy from another, it is transformed through the feeding process into
energy we can assimilate and use. If another, however well-meaning, seeks to force energy
into us, it will do us little good. The energy must be assimilated to match our own if we
are to benefit from it.
It is very difficult for us to assimilate any energy beyond that of life. Others may draw their
strength from the earth, the elements, even the stars, but we are bound to life by our lack
of it. Some of us are more disconnected from life than others, and this is reflected in what
and how much we can feed from in order to sustain ourselves. Few of us can feed from
alternate sources, but when we can, it is a blessing which should not be ignored.
XV. Blood and Life
Do not mistake mere blood for life. We feed upon something far subtler.
However, do not be surprised if, in feeding, you taste blood within your mouth, for blood
and life are intricately interwoven.
We are creatures of both matter and spirit, and thus we affect others on both of these
levels. Blood is the physical substance of life, and so we are bound ever so slightly to this
material expression of our spiritual need.
Do not be misled by the juxtaposition of energy and blood. No cut or puncture is
necessary for the transfer to occur. Our ways are far subtler than that. As you draw out
life, you draw out a minute amount of blood with the life. Even when there is no physical
contact between you and your partner, when the draw is deep enough, this will occur.
For this reason, always take care in who you feed from, for a taint in their blood may carry
over to you.
Never feed from the ill or diseased. Never feed from those who have drugs or alcohol in
their system unless you wish to partake of their intoxication for yourself. The taints in their
bodies will transfer over to you. You will know those who are tainted by the sensations
you get when near them. You will have an instinctual aversion to touching or getting close
to such people. Likewise, your senses will warn you if you attempt to initiate a draw.
Much of your awareness of the taint will occur on an unspoken level, so be attentive to
your impressions and intuitions.
Given time and careful observation, you will learn to discern these sensations in order to
identify the taint. This knowledge, however, may bring you great grief, for there are few
left in this world who are not tainted in one manner or another.
XVI. Geography of the Energy Body
On the body, there are certain centers where energy is concentrated. These have come to
be known generally as chakras. We can easily make a connection to a person at any of
these centers, bridging the gap between body and energy-body, physical and spiritual.
Indeed, these centers are like junctions between the two bodies and one can affect the
body on either or both levels simultaneously through the skilled manipulation of these
The function of the chakras are like subtle body organs. Each has a different purpose and
affect on the subtle and physical form, but for the most part, they all gather, process, and
circulate energy. They have been described as "wheels of light", which is indeed the literal
translation of the word chakra, and each one has a distinct frequency at which it resonates
energy, keeping it constantly spinning, pulsing, and in motion.
These centers and their usage has been known to cultures from ancient Egypt and before.
The energy flowing through these centers is known as prana in Sanskrit. It is chi to the
Chinese, ki to the Japanese, the ba or "breath of life" to the Egyptians. The energy has
been described as a fluid and has been equated with breath, blood and life by varying
cultures. It is the essential stuff of life and it is etheric yet fluid, mutable, and in a constant
state of motion. It is the spiritual mercury of the ancient alchemists, the element most
crucial to transformation and the creation of the Philosopher's Stone.
Different systems depict these centers at varying points in the body. The Hindu system of
Chakras has been most widely accepted by the West, and it depicts a set of seven "wheels
of light" which occur in a centralized line throughout the body. The Tibetan system, which
may have more purely inherited the ancient wisdom that went before, recognizes only five.
These five correspond to five aspects the Egyptians attributed to the human soul. As our
heritage is Egyptian and pre-Egyptian, we have chosen their words to describe these
Different systems depict these centers at varying points in the body. The Hindu system of
chakras has been most widely accepted by the West, and it depicts a set of seven "wheels
of light" which occur in a centralized line throughout the body. The Tibetan system
recognizes only five, so it is important to be aware that not all systems agree. We
recognize major six centers within the body, and their location and characteristics are as
The first energy center is located at the crown of the head, and is accessible from either
crown or forehead. This is often depicted as two different centers, but due to their
proximity, these are affected as one. To the Egyptians and those that preceded them, this
center was known as the Akh. The Akh is the immortal body, that which contains our
undying, Essential Selves. This energy center is the point at which the immortal body
crosses over with the physical form.
The next center is located at the throat, and is accessible from the mouth or the sides of
the throat over the veins. This is known as the Khu. The Khu is the voice and will of an
individual. It is the seat of individual determination and magickal power for it is through
the word that our Wills are enacted.
The next center is located above the heart. This is the Ab. It is accessible directly above
the heart, between the breasts. The Ab is the center of the physical being, where the
physical stuff of life is circulated throughout the organism. It is a very powerful center of
raw life energy. The Ab is the dynamic opposite of the Ba. Where the Ab is the center of
the physical life-force, with the heart and all its pumping blood, the Ba is the center of the
spiritual life-force and serves much the same function as the heart with circulating and
directing the subtle life energies.
When doing energy work or doing visualizations, it will seem that the center of power is
located in the chest, just beneath the very base of the sternum. This is the Ka. It is the
dynamic opposite of the Akh, so that where the Akh is the immortal, higher soul, the Ka is
the body-soul, tied to the needs and hungers of the physical form. It is here that a strong
sensation can be felt during feeding. The Ka is interlinked with the very capacity to feed. It
is the seat of the spiritual hunger, as well as the bridge between the subtle energy and the
point in the body where this is drawn in and made useful.
The Ba is located in the belly, just beneath the navel. The Ba is the center of the spiritual
life force. By its action, it sustains the life of the subtle body and connects the subtle body
to the physical, transitory form. It is further the tie which connects us to the wheel of
death and rebirth. Altering or severing this center completely will affect the way in which
the soul travels through the wheel. Most other energy traditions such as Yoga describe
this center as the seat of the subtle power. It is this area just beneath the navel that a Yogi
is trained to focus on when gathering power. For us, this center is significantly altered.
Many of us are disconnected from it partially or entirely. Our center, as a result, is higher,
and lies in the Ka.
Finally, there is a center at the root. This is the Min, the sexual force. This center is most
completely tied to the body and is the dynamic opposite of the Khu. Where the Khu is the
word and will, this is the instinct, that which has the power to rob us of our wills and
transform us into beasts. This center is accessible through the genitals or just inside the
joint of the thigh.
Minor centers exist at the wrists, the insides of the elbows and the backs of the knees. The
palms of the hands and the soles of the feet also contain minor chakras. Any of these can
be used to create a connection, although we are hardly bound to reach out to another's
energy body through these sites. Any physical contact will do, and as mentioned before,
even physical contact is not necessary to feed.
XVII. More on Feeding
Our energy actually pierces the subtle body of our partner and penetrates it, drawing
energy out as if through a straw. Afterward, a wound is left in the aura of the partner,
though this will close on its own in a few days. It can sometimes be echoed in the flesh in
the form of a small rounded bruise. In the case of long-standing partners, the wound can
become a permanent weak spot in the aura through which we can easily penetrate and gain
access to their energy.
Generally speaking, feeding is not harmful to the partner. They have a connection to the
universal force; this will replenish them in time, usually overnight. Most partners will just
feel a little tired and fuzzy-headed after being fed from. Many have described it like a mild
drug, something that is pleasantly mellowing. Some experience euphoria during feeding
and feel they are riding intense waves of pleasure. Others can achieve an altered state of
consciousness with intense dream-like visions.
Feeding partners may be a little hypersensitive to bright light afterwards and they may
experience a sudden feeling of cold. They may be a little more tired than usual the next
morning, and they may have a headache that is much like a hangover. However, under
ordinary circumstances, these are the most severe side affects feeding will produce in a
Some caution should be used when feeding from those who are not accustomed to it,
however. If fed from too quickly or too deeply, the partner may experience difficulty in
breathing. Irregularities in the heartbeat may follow. The partner's body will tingle all over,
though this may quickly give way to feelings of numbness and cold. Some find this
pleasant. To others, it is alarming. It may become very difficult for the person to move and
the limbs will feel heavy and uncoordinated. In very extreme cases, the partner will
experience a general depression of the entire sympathetic nervous system. This includes
lowered body temperature, lowered blood pressure, slowed heart-rate, and a general
lassitude which may manifest itself in extreme cases as an all-over muscular weakness and
trembling or partial paralysis.
When feed from extremely deeply, it is almost guaranteed that a partner will partially or
completely lose consciousness. Do not panic if this occurs. Make certain that they are in
no immediate danger, and if they seem to be breathing all right, just let them sleep it off.
With their connection to the universal life force, there is very little permanent damage you
can do to someone by overfeeding, so long as you do not make it a habit to do so.
Consistent overfeeding will evoke in the partner symptoms similar to those which we
experience during periods of starvation. The continual shortage of energy will begin to tax
the immune system. They will be tired all the time, sickly and weak. They may sleep a
great deal, or they may find themselves unable to actually sleep despite their overwhelming
lethargy. Putting constant demands upon one partner will eventually put them in a position
where their system can no longer compensate for the loss of energy fast enough to meet
your needs. This is why it is always wise to have at least one other reliable source which
you can feed from. The best strategy to keep you and all those close to you healthy is to
have two or three partners which you feed from, rotating through them so that no single
one of them must bear the full weight of your needs.
A draw can be enacted in conjunction with tantric magick. Your primary contact is made
at the mouth or the throat, and a tendril is inserted into the subtle body of your partner.
Through intense visualization, this tendril is guided down through your partner's subtle
body to the root chakra. Here the Kundalini energy that is so crucial to Tantra lies coiled.
You can grasp onto the Kundalini energy and manually pull it up through each successive
chakra. Draw in only a little during this process until the drawing up of the energy is
complete. Once you have brought the Kundalini through all the chakras to your primary
point of contact, you will have generated an immense amount of energy from which both
yourself and your partner can benefit. You and your partner will sense something like an
explosion of light and energy within yourselves, followed immediately by a bursting
sensation as if you had just been pushed through some barrier. This will consummate in a
powerful sense of climax on the subtle level.
Feeding in this manner is very productive, as it serves to energize both yourself and your
partner. Your partner will almost invariably experience a prolonged and impressive
orgasm, and one may feed upon the torrent of energy that results from the climax to
increase mutual stimulation. It is almost impossible to exhaust a partner when feeding
from the root: whereas prolonged or deep feeding from any of the other major energy
centers can cause trembling, weakness, dizziness, and an overall depression of the system,
feeding from the root seems to only increase that which you feed upon. The partner, after
recovering from the intensity of the drain is almost always energized and while they still
feel the effects of physical exhaustion, they are driven by a fevered desire that can sustain
them for hours. The process is very difficult to master, however, and if the coil of
Kundalini energy slips from your grasp, you will simply end up initiating a deep feed from
all the chakras in succession.
Remember, we can feed through a touch, but our spirits extend far beyond the limits of
our body. Long-distance draws that are just as intimate and intense as feeding flesh to
flesh can be achieved.
When you are starved for energy and no opportunity to adequately sate your needs has
arrived, you may find that you will send yourself out in dreams. This is much like astral
travel, although it is largely an unconscious activity. You will dream of someone close to
you. This can be a family member, a good friend, a current or a former lover. This person
need not be located physically close to you, as the subtle reality does not know distance as
we know it in the physical world. Your body may be confined to your bedroom, yet your
dream-self may wander hundreds and even thousands of miles away.
The dream will seem unusually vivid. It is very likely that the dream will also be lucid, and
you will realize at least in part that you are dreaming, but that this other person is
somehow actually present in the dream. In the course of the dream, you will have an
exchange with the target person. The exchange can be overtly vampiric, or it may manifest
itself in an erotic context. The person who you have visited this way will wake up tired
and worn just as if you had fed directly from them that night. Often, they will recall the
dream as well, and if it is possible to compare experiences, you will find that certain
elements of the dreamscape were shared by both people involved in the dream.
With practice, you will come to be able to distinguish between your ordinary dreams and
these dream-walking experiences. The process does not always have to be unconscious.
You may gain mastery over this ability and dream-walk at will. However it remains a
survival technique inherent in the vampiric nature. Therefore, especially in periods of dire
need, you may find your soul wandering regardless of your personal control
XX. Choosing Donors
In crowds or when performing a general, long-distance drain, it is nearly impossible to
assure that your victims are willing. When physical contact is not involved or when the
drain is weak enough, such consent is unnecessary.
However, when you feed deeply upon someone, especially through physical contact, it is
advisable that you make certain your partner understands what is being done to them so
that they know the risks and cannot blame you for invading their person. Lying and
dissembling to someone you must be so close to will only make their reaction to you all
the more violent when and if they discover your true nature.
This requires us to choose our long-term feeding partners with great care. Casual feeding
is discouraged as too many partners may gossip and eventually learn what you have done
to them by comparing notes. Two or three regular partners are suggested, so you may
establish strong links with them and rotate them as the need arises, so no single one is
exhausted by your demands.
Our partners ideally must be awake enough to understand and accept what we are or else
our explanation of what we do to them will be met only with scorn and incredulity. You
must carefully build a relationship up with a prospective partner, sounding out their beliefs
until you feel comfortable in entrusting them with the truth of what you are. If you cannot
feel comfortable in telling them what you do to them, you should not use them as a regular
We must select partners who are emotionally strong and mentally stable. Those who are
versed in the arts of the subtle reality are preferable. The bond that we must share with
someone in order to feed deeply from them is profound indeed. It encompasses all levels
of being, physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional, and it can be more than most ordinary
folk can safely handle. Our lovemaking and often even our casual contact touches them
profoundly on a more than physical level. Even for those who have had some experience
with the subtle reality, this is something they have probably never experienced before and
will never experience with any partner save ourselves.
For some, this is too much. It ruins them for everything else. They can easily become
obsessed with us, and especially they will become obsessed with what we can do to them.
Such an obsession is unhealthy for them as well as for us. Thus, we must give our love
carefully and diligently watch those whom we are close to for signs of instability so we
may protect them from the destruction our nature inevitably wreaks.
XXI. The Kiss and the Curse
We do not bring only pain and loss to those we feed upon. The experience of our touch on
levels far deeper than the physical can be transformative to those strong enough to bear up
Let others condemn us, call us evil or perverse, but let them never speak of love or an
understanding of it. For we love and share with one another in way so profound that those
not of our number have never imagined it before. Ours is the kissing of souls, unburdened
by the limitations of physical flesh. Ours is the deepest knowing of another soul. Ours is
the truest communion.
Those we feed upon experience waves of ecstasy, like riding the crest of a prolonged
orgasm, though one which is not located specifically in the flesh.
Our draw is like a drug. Our partners are overcome with a soothing sensation, until they
relax to their very core. They feel they are drifting in an ocean of pleasure. They are filled
with a golden, melting sensation that is almost narcotic in its intensity. Our draw can bring
visions and it can bring rest and sleep even to the most restless of souls. The pleasure we
give is not wholly physical but occurs upon all levels, and serves to bridge the space
between these levels of existence in our partners, raising them up into an apotheosis of
Self. Our touch is mystical, and it changes our partners profoundly on levels they may only
Like a drug, however, our draw can be addictive. We understand too well the
overpowering desire our need inspires in us, but our partners can also come to be reliant
upon the pleasure that we give to them. They can become trained to be responsive to our
touch, and their physical and subtle bodies can grow so accustomed to our drain that they
overproduce vitality in anticipation of having it drained away. Thus we must always take
care in how often we feed from our partners, and try to guard against obsessing them with
the pleasure that we give to the exclusion of all else.
XXII. Subtle Links
Each time you feed from someone, you forge a subtle link with them. This link is like an
astral tentacle or a silver cord. It connects your subtle body to their subtle body. Every
time you feed from this person after forging the initial link, you make this link stronger and
deeper. The link can also be strengthened simply through casual contact with the person,
so whenever you come together socially the link is reinforced bit by bit.
This link serves as a constant connection to the person. Through it, you can sense where
they are, what their emotional state is, and if they are in any physical danger or distress.
The deeper and stronger the link, the easier it is to travel down it in order to sense the
person on the other end.
Through a strong link, you will be able to pick up stray thoughts in addition to emotions.
You will also be able to implant suggestions and emotions. By tugging gently on the link
with the person, you can make them think of you and draw them to you.
With concentration, an especially strong link will enable you to extend your awareness
completely enough so your are able to perceive through the other person's senses.
XXIII. Feeding Through Links
Once a link is forged with someone, you may use the link to feed from them at a distance.
The deeper and stronger the link, the more efficiently you can draw energy through it.
With most such connections, you do not even have to concentrate to draw forth from the
person. To a certain extent, you are in constant contact with that person, and while the
energy you gain from them passively is only minimal, a number of such connections with
various people will help sustain you in times of need as well as prolong the time you can
go between more active feedings.
If you choose to actively drain through a link, there are two good ways of doing so.
First, you can simply concentrate on pulling some of that person's energy to you through
the link. Center yourself. Focus on your connection to that person, then visualize the
person clearly. Visualize yourself reaching out and touching them to feed then breathe in,
drawing in energy as well as breath.
You may also extend yourself down through the link, initiating a deeper contact with their
energy body as you do so. This is a more direct way of feeding from those you have subtle
connections to, and it is also much more obvious to the person on the other end. As
before, concentrate upon the person and get a clear image of them in your head. Then
focus on extending your subtle senses to that person, much as you would if you chose to
see through their eyes or perceive their emotional state.
When you are successfully focused on them, it will seem you are in two places at once.
Part of you will be sitting or standing wherever your body is, and you will retain some
awareness of these surroundings. Part of you will be focused entirely upon the other
person and will feel as if it occupies the same space that they do, or is somehow enveloped
around them. Once this has occurred, you may initiate a drain, pulling their energy in
through your breath as you had done before.
The target of such a drain is likely to become aware of it at least on a semi-conscious
level. They may suddenly find themselves thinking of you for no reason they can explain.
They may smell your perfume or catch sight of you out of the corner of their eye. If they
are asleep, they may see you enter their dreams. This is a lot like conscious dreamwalking.
The technique behind it is largely the same. Sensitive targets may actually
perceive your presence, seeing you, ghost-like, hovering somewhere nearby.
Of all the things we can do, this has historically frightened people the most. It serves as the
basis for all the myths and legends of demonic and vampiric nightly visitations.
