Blood hunger: A symptom most common to a
Sanguinarian Vampire. Similar to an addiction or craving.
This can happen to a psi vampire as well, however, they
generally have to be greatly starved for energy. Psis this
will feel a hunger that is more geared towards energy.
Charisma: Vampires are often reported as
being heavily attractive to other people. They tend to have
a slightly higher charisma than most "normal" people.
However, they can also repulse others as well.
Usually this is a trait of a psi vampire due to the fact
that when attracted to or repulsed by someone, you are
unknowingly giving them energy. A psi vamp will take this
on naturally when they are hungry. Chemically, the
pheromones in their bodies increase causing such an affect.
Digestive trouble: Many vampires admit to
having digestive trouble. This may be for a variety of
reasons but may also be rooted in their constant hunger for
energy/blood. A vampire's body reacts differently to the
environment and that includes food. It is a very rare thing
indeed when a vampire has an "iron stomach".
Dual-personality: Not to be confused with
schizophrenia or Disassociative Disorder. You're still you
but you don't act or feel like it. Generally, this is when
one is 'hungry'
Heightened Senses: Sangs do tend to have
this. Self-explanatory I think.
Medication Sensitivity: Either a high tolerance for or
they affect you differently. Most vampires cannot take
medicine for this reason. A pill that would make someone
slightly sleepy can knock a vampire out for hours!
On the same note, important medicine such as antibiotics
may have no affect at all!!
Migraine headaches: Many vampires report
having these. Also associated with hunger. Usually
psi vampires are the ones who get it the worst. Their
sensitivity to energy makes them susceptible to all sorts of
feelings. When they are hungry, this sensitivity grows to
an extreme amount. Migraines are usually caused from
either this sensitivity or the lack of energy itself.
Comparable to a hypo-glycemic.
Night time activities: Because most vampires
are sensitive to sunlight (see below) most of them are more
inclined to be active during the night. Even for those who
aren't sensitive to the sun all that much, they tend to be night
time people as well. It is suggested that this has to do
with the chemicals in a vampire's body and how they react
differently at times.
Psychic Abilities: Many vampires have psychic
abilities. These include but are not limited to: healing,
premonition, energy manipulation, empathy, sensing auras, astral
Sunlight: Many vampires feel uncomfortable to some degree in sunlight. Most have to wear sunglasses because their eyes are so photosensitive to the light. All too often vampires will wear sunscreen as high as 60SPF or higher. Some will even wear long sleeves and pants in the hot summer months. The burns can be anywhere from just a painful red to blisters and sores. Usually with only being in the sun anywhere from 5 min. to an hour.
