*Drinking real blood is discouraged by most elder vampyres as it is an extremely dangerous fetish! However, some vampyres claim that you are not a REAL vampyre unless you drink/crave blood. These web pages were created for educational purposes and were not meant to clarify who is or is not a real vampyre.*

***A QUICK NOTE TO CLARIFY AN ISSUE: No where on these vampire/vampyre pages does it classify the vampire/vampyre lifestyle as "goth" nor is it my intent to represent it as such.***
