The Ones who Walk The Path of The Night
Vampires are pale humanoid creatures that need to drink blood in order to survive. They were created when a male made a deal with a demon. The demon listened to the mortal's request and gifted him with much more than power. In the beginning, none of the other species could stand up to the vampires. This was until the other races started discovering the vampires weaknesses. An all-out war was had with the vampires. The war ended with mountains of bodies and the formation of the Blood Pact.
Blood PactThe Blood Pact is a peace treaty that was created at the end of the war. It states that once a week, nearby cities will send people to Nite so they can milk them for their blood. After a week, they return to their cities. In exchange, vampires can't randomly kill people, and can't convert people without their consent. Likewise, people can't go out murdering vampires. In the present day, most vampires live in the city know as Nite. Nite is constantly covered by a black dome that blocks out sunlight. Vampires can leave whenever they want to. However, they would need to find their own source of food and shelter without breaking any of the rules of the treaty.

Vampires have sharpened fangs and don't age. Males are larger than females, but females are stronger in certain aspects of their power.
