Some vampires sunburn more easily than normal or get migraines or weird rashes from bright sunlight. These traits are most common in sanguinarian vampires, but some psychic vampires have these problems too. A few psychic vampires, however, actually like sunshine and get energy from sunshine.
People think psychic vampires feed on emotions, especially negative emotions, but this isn't technically true. Psychic vampires feed on prana or chi, the vital force of all living things. When someone is emotional, they radiate this metaphysical substance, so it becomes easier for a psychic vampire to take it in. Most psychic vampires learn subconsciously how to obtain the energy they need. Some do it by provoking strong emotions in other people. This can be anger, fear, frustraion, disgust, hate, devotion, infatuation, desire, lust or any strong emotion.
Most psychic vampires tend to favor or work most easily with a small range of different emotions. Their personality may affect their choices, and their choices will probalby affect their personality. Those who favor negative emotions can be a$$es sometimes, because they might enjoy stirring up negative emotions in others. Those who favor infatuation, desire and lust, will usually be charming and highly sexual. There are all kinds of variations, as there are all kinds of personalities.
