They aren't like any of the myths. They are real. Vampires are not like those in the movies or books, we don't drain unwilling victims of their blood. We have kind people who are called donors and they give us the blood or energy we need. Vampires are people who have energy deficiency and need to get that energy by taking it from other people. We don't die in the sun, can't fly, no super powers, can cross running water, garlic, holy water and the cross don't phase us (because we are not demons we are just different to normal people), we can see better at night than in the day, heightened senses, we do age(just not as fast) and we aren't immortal. There are three types of vampires sang vamp, psi vamp and hybrid.
Sang vamp is short for sanguinarium vampire these are the ones that need blood. They get sunburnt really fast(I can only last 30mins before getting sun burnt with sunblock on). They get sluggish durring the day but really active at night.
Psi vamp is short for psychic vampire. They don't drink blood but feed from chi energy instead. They can get this from touching somone or just being close to another person. The person doesn't even know most of the time and only feel a bit drained of energy but that goes away soon after. Most psi vamps don't even know what they are doing and can even feed while they sleep. They can also go to the astral plane.
I am a hybrid myself, we are both sang and psi vamps. I am more sang than psi though and need blood to get my energy but chi energy sustains me.
I hope that shed some light on this for you for more info feel free to email me
