Topic I personally am in no way a Vampire in any shape or form, but, I am always interested in exactly how the people that are 'Vampires" view such and explain it. So I think it would be rather interesting to get a discussion going on about this. My ResponseWell personally I have multiple view points on this.. I mostly blame energy-based vampirism on a select few things. Damage, as damage can cause the person to have a shortage of energy, Otherkinity, some kin are naturally Vampiric Want and/or Addiction. While for non-energetic vampirism (Physical-vampires in reference to people who supposedly need to drink blood.), I view it a tad bit differently.. Mostly one being that it is some form of curse, which, is more then possible I would say as curses can effect you physically to a degree. That, or a mental-related thing. Could also be something genetic but I am not fully sure on that.
