Vampire Servants and Common Vampires

Servant vampires, are sired by purebloods. They will look human, until they feed, then their eyes turn red, veins feather across their features and their mouth contort to take the fangs that grow. They are not under the influence of the pureblood but if they serve well they can be given the opportunity to drink elder blood to become a pureblood,.

Purebloods will also look for good swords or people with influence to sire. When they sire good swords, as well as being a servant vampire they are then forced to become a cleanser. The elite guard for vampires and also hunters for anything not pure. This is why servant vampires are called servants as they serve the purebloods and elders.

Others, also known as Common Vampires are vampires sired by servants and each other. They are the lowest ranking vampire in the hierarchy and are looked at like outcasts. There are covens in large cities that will take others and servants, some may have cleansers but these are usually swords sired by servants or others. They are the most common of vampire and the ones that humans will come across the most.

How to sire a vampire

The way to make a vampire is the nonvampire must ingested vampire blood, then be bitten by a vampire in minutes or within a few hours. Then they must die with in an hour of the bite. This will then make them a vampire and they will awake from their death within a day. They will then have the abilities of a vampire but will need to drink blood. 

The way of siring is the same for all types of vampire. The difference it what blood is ingested and what types bites them.
