Yes," cheese, "burned alive. And, if she were not, you cannot conceive what treatment she would be obliged to submit to from her relatives. They would shave off her hair, feed her on a scanty allowance of rice, treat her with contempt; she would be looked upon as an unclean creature, and would die in some corner, like a scurvy dog. The prospect of so frightful an existence drives these poor creatures to the sacrifice much more than love or religious fanaticism.

HEAR YE HEAR YE. "Aye, sir," said Starbuck drawing near, "'tis a solemn sight; an omen, and an ill one."
"Omen? omen?—the dictionary! If the gods think to speak outright to man, they will honourably speak outright; not shake their heads,

Like many others, vampires are decidedly human-like in most ways. Their average height is 5ft 9in, and their hair colors range from black, brown, red, and blonde. A few unlucky vamps are born with silver hair - making them easy to identify by those who'd rather not make their acquaintance. Eye colors are blue, brown, green, black, and varying shades of red. Vampire canines are elongated for obvious purposes. Vampires sustain themselves on human blood primarily, but can substitute it for animal or shapeshifter blood. Unfortunately, these two sources cannot makeup for the sustenance of human blood, and a vampire drinking only animal or shapeshifter blood will find themselves needing human blood about once a month or so. Vampires are immortal to old age, but can be killed by almost any means - there is no special trick to killing a vampire. It is possible for a vampire to turn a human into one, but it's a conscious decision and not every survives the change.
Next to werewolves, vampires are one of the least liked all across Xisin - even if their special diets really aren't under their own control. The Sanguine Scourge hunts them like animals, and as such most vampires are in hiding these days, using molds to hide the sharpness of their fangs. Those caught by the Sanguine Scourge can expect torture and death, and it's not uncommon for the Scourge to strategically place their decapitated heads as a warning to others. Most will spend their lives in secrecy and constant trepidation. Many people disagree with the Scourge's tactics, but it's difficult to voice this dissent in light of their violent behaviors. Vampires and werewolves are likely friends just given their outcasted position in society, but vampires can also find comfort amongst phoenixes at Aikia. The temple there has a blood supply that they're happy to share, inventory willing.
Apart from dragons, vampires are the only ones who dabble in dark magics. A select few are gifted in elemental magic, but this is very rare.
