The Before Times

Vampire History

The Before TimesBB-16 vampires ate as they chose and reveled in the terror and the last throes of their preyBB-16 Blood Lust/“lost in blood”; old ceremony - forbidden now; reveling in the blood of the victim, painting it on hands and faceBB-25 memory lapse is not inconsistant with blood lust; usually only dulls unimportant thingsBB-26

A Brief HistoryMC-191 vampires were Old World preternatural creatures they'd come over for the same reasons most humans did: to gain wealth, power, or land, and to escape persecution during the Renaissance, vampires had been an open secret; being thought one added power and prestige cities of Italy and France became havens for them their numbers were not great like werewolves, humans who would become vampires died more often than they accomplished their goal most of the princes and nobles believed to be vampires were just clever men who saw the claim as a way to discourage rivals when the Spanish invasion of the New World filled the coffers of the Church so they no longer had to depend upon the favor of the nobles, they went after the vampires as well as any other preternatural creature they could find hundreds of people died, if not thousands, accused of vampirism, witchcraft, or lycanthropy only a small percentage of those who died actually were vampires, but those losses were still severe humans breed much faster than the undead vampires came to the New World, victims of religious persecution they along with the other immigrants (fae and werewolf) destroyed most of the preternatural creatures who had lived in the Americas, until at last, even the bare stories of their existence were mostly gone

From Moon Called: don't play dominance games with vampires; don't look them in the eyesMC-162 the Kiss–to bespell by their bite, to enthrall; some do die of itMC-182

From Blood Bound: only the strongest vampires can live on their own and survive purely on human blood; all the others live in the seethe and are the Mistress' menagerieBB-211 a new vampire is under the control of it's maker; it's not willing serviceBB-169 the control diminishes as the younger vampire gets older and accumulates power; or when their makers dieBB-169 it happens sometimes that a vampire is created and not a thrall, such vampires are always killed upon their first risingBB-169 a master vampire can listen in on his childrenBB-238 when a bound one is made over by someone they're not bound to, odd things happenBB-206 all the businesses in the greater Tri-Cities who weren't affiliated with more powerful groups paid protection money to the vampiresBB-204 some of the vampires have names among themselves; it had to do with an old suspicion that if you spoke evil's name, you drew it's attentionBB-205 can give humans false memoriesBB-28 most vampires breathe because not breathing attracts human attention; some do it because their not breathing is as troubling to them as it is to the the rest of usBB-31 it is forbidden to turn anyone who is not fully humanBB-31 there aren't a lot of vampires, and it takes a long time to make themBB-167 if a vampire is hurt badly enough, there are ways of bringing him back under the control of a more powerful vampireBB-167 vampires can't stand on holy groundBB-228 the older they get the more afraid they are of deathBB-213 with the bound ones the urge to kill is very, very strong–and it only gets worse with time; the urge affects all vampires, not just the one the person is bound toBB-209

hungry vampire fledglings have a tendency to go out and find their own foodRM-11


a vampire likes to keep a food supply at hand, so they live with a small group of humans, usually anywhere from three to sevenBB-207 three are enough to provide food for a month before they die, seven is enough for six monthsBB-207 it takes a couple of years for a vampire to establish a connection strong enough with their menagerie so that they can control themBB-165 the longer a person belongs to a vampire, the harder it is for the vampire to keep from killing himBB-209 a human without protection (wolf pack bond, for example) who was food for the same vampire more than once could become a pet–as all the people in the menagerie were: dependent upon the vampire and ready to follow any orders he might give themRM-14 a vampire's menagerie is made up of victims; most of them die very slowlyRM-27


a wooden stake, holy water or sunlight the stake is better if it's oak, ash, or yew; if you kill them that way you have to cut off their heads or burn the body to make sure they stay deadBB-166 a dead vampire is ashes; if there's a body, it'll come backBB-166 you'd need a whole swimming pool of holy water to kill oneBB-166 fire's bestBB-166
