Most living beings see their blood as a functional way to live. For a vampire, it is a food resource that keeps them from falling into fame. Any living being is registered as having blood, even vampires. Although, vampiric blood moves at a much slower rate due to their heart not registering as beating even though it does. Vampiric blood is also considered poisonous if consumed by another vampire.
PropertiesDrinking the blood of a pure-blooded vampire is said to clear the system of any poisons and help to heal wounds quicker. Only one royal vampire has ever been recorded as captured and that is Lucifer, the second-born child of Darkness and Black Hole. Vampires prefer to drink from humans, but they can survive off of other beings. Drinking werewolf blood is considered taboo and is described as "drinking blood from a flea-ridden dog." It is not worth their time, especially if one is of a higher rank. Vampires are also known to rather starve into fame than drink the blood of a wolf and they have the ability to close off their throat to refuse to feed.
TradeVampires are able to get blood from humans within their empires and kingdoms, but when humans are not enough to feed all the vampires, they turn to slaves for nourishment. High-class vampires have the opportunity to sell slaves to other vampiric countries for profit while also feeding their brethren. During wartime, a starving vampire is allowed to capture any human or sapient non-vampiric being and enslave them for food. Wealthy, high-class vampires are even able to use this as means to sell slaves for money or otherwise necessary goods, especially when there is an influx of low-class vampires starving and slaves are an abundant resource. Making quest deals with butchers for blood is another form of trade among vampires.
