Vampires are born just like Humans, the children grow up as humans. They eat this period people eat. It is not until they have reached their eighteenth year of life that the aging process slows down, which is also the age when their bodies reject normal food and they start drinking blood. Most vampires drink or eat juice from a special berry: Bloodberries
The skin of all the vampires is clear, so there will be no pimples or scars on it. If a vampire gets hurt the skin repairs its self over time. Some vampire scholars believe it is one of the many special properties of the bloodberry.

Count Dadrick Ventila has adopted the creature in to his symbol and crest of his school.
Vampires are not effected by the sun, it is only because they are so used to live during the night. That their eyes are a little sensitive for sunlight. Their skin doesn't get touch be the sun not even get a sunburn.
