A new vampire is created when another vampire drains the life out of a living creature. This vampire is a fledgling until it intakes Vitrium to become a neophyte. At this point, the neophyte is vulnerable to moon/sun damage and susceptible to corruption by elder vampires, to whom they feel a commitment and abusively-conjured debt and kinship.
