Undead people who survive on blood

For an overview about all vampires in Touch of Magic check out the Vampire-category 

Vampires are one of two main supernatural species in Touch of Magic. They are immortal and feed on blood to survive. Depending on the type of blood they choose, they are classified in types. They are known to either form groups or live rather isolated. They have a minimum pressence in society and mostly live in the shadows of the everyday world.

HistoryEdit

The curseEdit

The oldest vampires were created in the nomadic period ; When a group of nomads travelled by they met another group. The nomads saw that these other people had cattle , so they took the cattle and killed it for meat. The sedentairy group was angry , and since they were witches , used herbs to cast a spell on the nomads , cursing them for an eternal life where they'd only be able to survive if they drank animal blood.

This dozen of 'First Vampires' quickly slimmed down to a handfull , since they either killed eachtother of died of thrist. Untill one of them found the satisfaction of human blood , which made them stronger , faster and better overall. These hunters now became a superior species and they expanded their race as the human blood drinking vampires created a toxic , that turned humans into vampires.Quickly , some vampires began to group and became more and more powerfull and gained in numbers. This main group of vampires was called the First Coven and settled in Scandinavia.

First CovenEdit

Around the 14th century , they ruled most of the countryside of Europe. Their recruitements where masked by a mythe saying every couple should give up half of their children , otherwise it would rain blood.

A few hundred years later , a new power emerged in Europe , called the Miller-coven. But the First Coven didn't take action as the Miller group made the cross-atlantic travel.

The big twoEdit

But with two big vampire-groups on either side of the ocean it was meant to clash sometime. When May Miller ordered the attack on the First Coven , it came as a surprise and May won. The members that survived moved to the South , the mediterainian , where it was torture for most vampires because of the heat. They based on Andros , a small little Greek island , and renamed themselves the Anconi group. They slowly started to grow back in numbers , and were planning an attack. However , they managed to came to an agreement when May gave the Anconi her daughter ; a pure vampire infant baby. Jade was considered a truce offer and the two groups decided to leave eachother alone.

SpeciesEdit

TypesEdit

Vampires are classified in several types, distinguished by their nurture. Along with their diet, several other elements play part in separating different types, such as human interaction and fertility.

For more information about their types, check their pages Type A-vampires
Type B-vampires
Type C-vampires
Type D-vampires

Human FoodEdit

  • Sticktly Type A vampires usually don't eat human food. They might rarely for keeping up appearence , but usually not willingly.
  • Type B vampires despise human food completely and they don't come near restaurants and kitchens. A bright side is that chefs are usually not on their menu because of this.
  • Type C vampires are characterised by their preference for human food. If the type C-vampire makes this comitment, it can fill up the need of certain nutrients they'd otherwise would have to get through the blood. Having to consume less animal blood, they improve the ability to interact with humans (see Human interaction)
  • Type D vampires are born with both human and vampire-DNA and therefore their bodies need both blood and human food to survive. A Dhampir (or type D vampire) usually doesn't develope any bloodthirst untill the age of 12 , when their fangs are developed. However , it may occur that unborn Dhampirs use blood from their mother to grow and most Dhampirs are given little amounts occasionally to maintain tolerance for blood through childhood.</p>

Human InteractionEdit

  • Type A vampires tend to have a pressence in society but avoid much human interaction. They are usually the type of families that 'often make family trips' or 'move around the country a lot' in the eyes of the community in order to explain their frequent absence. But in reality they usually stay very much unde the radar.
  • Type B vampires are overall anti-social towards humans. They will only interact when them to feed on them. Some exceptions are high-ranked vampireleaders who interact with humans to maintain their power (think of lawyers, realators). Some vampires enjoy a thril that comes with the human party-scene. Clubs and bars are a frequent hunting ground for them, which is where they do interact with humans.
  • Type C vampires are specialized by their interaction with human. The lack of any human blood in their system will automatically put the craving for human blood down , which gives them the ability to interact with humans without wanting to slice their neck open. The consequence is that the vampire must maintain a steady amount of human food and animal blood to prevent the bloodthirst from taking over. This can take practise. Vampires who attend schools are usually experienced type C vampires
  • Type D vampires are, because of their genetics, born to interact with both humans and other vampires. They are a combination of both species and have no boundries when it comes to human interaction, like the type C vampires have.

Human ReproductionEdit

  • Type A vampires are not fertile because animal blood contains a nuclei that stops the production of oocytes.
  • Type B vampires are not fertile because human blood contains a nuclei that stopts the production of oocytes. Instead, the human blood will cause the creation of a toxic, that can turn others into vampires.
  • Type C vampires are not fertile, unless they lower their blood intake to the point where their bodies does start producing oocytes. The possibility of this theory on it's own is also unsure since the only known cases of fertile type C-vampires included some usage of magic.
  • Type D vampires are 100% fertile because of their human DNA..

Below are listed all the cases of vampire parents :

  • Alyson and Dylan with their adoptive daughter Aylin McKenzie, through legal adoption
  • Jason Dawson with Alena , AJ and Amore due to low blood-intake and magic (Payton)
  • Seth Dawson with Amanda and Alexis due to low blood-intake and magic (Claire)
  • May Miller with Alyssa and Jade due to low blood-intake and magic (Anconi fertility potion)
  • Grace Miller with Liam due to low blood-intake and magic (Anconi fertility potion)
  • Jared Carrington with Jade due to magic (fertility spell)
  • Alyssa Miller with Damien and Daphne due to being a dhampire and being the product of a vampire pregnancy
  • Jade Miller with Charlotte, Oliver, June due to low-blood intake, and magic (Pierre + fertility potion)
  • Liam Miller with Sophia, due to physically turning human (stripped of maternal vampire DNA)
  • Emilia Brown with her daughter, due to magic (Nick + fertility spell)


Life StagesEdit

New VampiresEdit

New vampires in general are ought a burden and difficult to maintain. The only way a new vampire will be succesfull is if it's trained amongst others. This is the case with the Anconi and The Millers. Other new vampires usually end up killed by their master or the rest of the world. A bad mentoring can also lead to future problems, such as the case of Ivy Woods.

Experienced VampiresEdit

Experienced vampires will have more self control. They are often able to interact and blend in with humans. The First Coven is notorious for their disguises among the common people. They have mastered the art of camouflage in human interractions flawlessly.

DeadEdit

All vampires share the same ways to kill them ;

  • Decomposition if they don't get enough blood
  • Wooden stake to the heart
  • Vampire Toxic

The latter is a toxic in witches blood. It is a secret weapon from the Elders which power was revealed when Payton used it to kill May Miller. She forced them to remove the toxic from all witches in her next meeting with them. It is the best kept but also the hardest kept secret weapon to kill vampires, that has only been used twice (arguably once), in the death of May Miller.

CuredEdit

Since vampirism is the result of a magical element added to human biology, it can cancel itself out by genetically mixing the vampire marker with that of a witch. As a result, people who have a vampire parent and a witch/wizard parent have the ability to undo the vampire genetics. In order to do so they would need to access the genetic markers from their magical heritage, and they would most likely need the assistance of another witch or wizard from that bloodline. 

  • Liam Miller can be cured by being the child of Grace Miller (a vampire) and Christopher Greene (a wizard). 
    • In Liam's case he wasn't cured but instead kept alive by his magical genetics. His vampirism got taken away due to the death of his mom (by a spell May put on herself and her sireline). In Liam's case this did not result in his death because his magical genetics were no longer surpressed which kept him alive. As a result, Liam is alive because of his magical parent.
  • Alena, Andrew and Amore can be cured by being the children of Jason Dawson (a vampire) and Payton Silverstone (a witch). All children were given the choice to at the age of 16. Payton and Jason's children officially have their double last name, but their grandchildren only cary the names of the genetic markers that are still present. Alena chose to name her children Silverstone, Andrew chose to pass down his double name, and Amore chose to name her children Silverstone too.
    • Andrew considered removing his vampirism when he wanted to start a family, but in the end chose not to. 
    • Amore Dawson decided to get rid of her vampirism after she turned 16. Afterwords, she also becomes a permanent resident of the magical dimension which wasn't possible before. Payton channeled the energy from the Silverstone Bloodline to do so, since that Bloodline is strongest. 
    • Alena considered removing her vampirism after she turned 16 but eventually chose not to. When she was 25 she decided she wanted the ability to age when she wanted to start a family. Payton chanelled the energy from the Silverstone Bloodline to cure Alena.
  • Amanda and Alexis can be cured by being the children of Seth Dawson (a vampire) and Claire Silverstone (a witch). They were both given the choice to at the age of 16. 
    • Amanda decided to get rid of her vampirism after she killed the father of her unborn child. Amanda's son Elliot Silverstone carries both genetic markers because he was already conceived at the time. Claire channeled the energy from the Greene Bloodline because she felt a stronger connection to it. 
    • Alexis Dawson decided not to remove her vampirism at age 16 because her child would most likely carry vampire genetics from it's father, Damien Saphire. Their son Kian Saphire's magical powers are dormant, and he shows very strong vampire abilities.
  • Emberle can be cured by being the child of Emilia Brown (a vampire) and Nick Thornton (a wizard). 
    • When given the choice at age 16 she decided to keep her vampirism to honor the relationship between Emilia and Alyssa, who eventually gave her mother the ability to have a child resulting in Emberle's existence. Emberle would be able to have future children because the ability is genetically passed on.

TransitioningEdit

Transition is a state of being that some vampires experience. Transitioning is only noticed in vampires who are in love. After a certain amount of time the heart of a vampire will start to respond to the heartbeat of the person of their affection, if it is mutual. This will cause friction with the vampire body which will not be adjusted to match a human body's heartbeat. This will resolve in lots of violance and bipolar behaviour as two sides to the vampire in question will start to fight for dominance.

In this fight, a vampire will loose the ability to use special powers linked to their cause of death. The raging violance will also disable them from being in proximity to the person they love. Afterwords, the vampire will either desert his or her clan and live on in seclusion (usually turning into a type B vampire if not yet the case) or either return to their love and live a loving and caring life.

In a relationship, only one person will transition, seeing as the process affects both people. It is usually the male, although there are reportings of females.

Notable examples of transitioned vampires :

  • Jared Carrington (May Miller)
  • James Dawson (Elisabeth Dawson)
  • Alyson McKenzie (Dylan McKenzie)
  • Jason Dawson (Payton Silverstone)
  • Seth Dawson (Claire Silverstone)
  • Nate Dawson (Lauren Dawson)
  • Liam Miller (as a vampire - Mila Romano)
  • Alyssa Miller (Justin Saphire)
  • Jade Miller (Pierre Ambroise)
  • Aria Woods (Matt O'Connell)
  • Antoine Blanchard (Maria Delgado)

PoliticsEdit

LawsEdit

Several laws have been drawn up to protect the species from a civil war. The Anconi oversees these laws being followed and executes the punishments if they are broken. Laws are decided upon by the vampire community in a meeting held once in a decade.

  • A vampire can not kill another vampire unless in self-defense.
  • A vampire can not turn more than 10 people within one year.

TerritoriesEdit

North-American ContinentEdit

The North-American Continent knows four significant divides. The Millers control everything west of the Mississippi river up to the Great Lakes and Ontario. Illinois and Wisconsin are grey areas, but technically free territory. They along with several other states form a buffer between other territories. Most notable is Lake Winnipeg (and the province of Manitoba) which acts as a buffer between The Millers and the Dawsons.

The Dawsons territory in the north fades into free territory, and in the south at the Oregon/California border, extended horizontally untill the border with the buffer states, also bordering territory of the independent vampires with Nebraska. Wyoming, Denver and Nebraska are considered a grey area. as a meeting point of three territories.

The Eureka's control most of the south except Texas and anything geographically above it. They also control northern mexico, up until Monterrey.
