Frequently Asked QuestionsQ: A character is infected by a lycanthrope/ailuranthrope, but before the full moon comes, they are drained by a vampire and fed blood for the embrace. Would they become a vampire?
A: They are sired like any ordinary human. The vampire has drained the infected blood.
Q: Vampires cannot get sick, but can they be carriers for diseases?
A: For the most part no. Say a vampire engages in a threesome with a one infected female human and one uninfected female human. Right then, he can transfer whatever infection the first is carrying to the other, but within an hour of that encounter the infection dies.
Q: As in some legends, can a dhampir only come from a male vampire and female human?
A: No, according to our mythology dhampir can come from both male vampire/female human and male human/female vampire relationships.
Q: Can a lycanthrope impregnate a human or dhampir?
A: A lycanthrope cannot impregnate a human. The odds are if a woman is engaged in a sexual relationship with a lycan and does not use any kind protection she will soon become infected. In between her infection and her first transformation, she cannot get pregnant. Only after turning for the first time and becoming a wolf can they have children. Dhampirs cannot procreate with lycanthropes. This also applies to ailuranthropes.
Q: Can a lyacnthrope/ailuranthrope infect a dhampir?
A: The child of a vampire and human is immune to lycanthropy. Even a dhampir of 1/4th or 1/6th vampire heritage remains immune. Past 1/8th they loose immunity, but by this point they'd have so few vampiric powers they might not even be aware of their heritage. Any powers they did have would be null after their first transformation.
Q: Can a dhampir sire a human?
A: No, only a vampire can sire a human.
Q: Are dhampir immortal?
A: Some are and some are not. It depends what qualities they inherit from their undead parent. Some get shafted big time and burn up like regular vampires in the sun.
Q: Does dead or poisoned blood have any effect on vampires?
A: The blood of the dead provides no nourishment and has a foul taste. Consuming it does not weaken the vampire, though the sheer vile taste might cause them to vomit the blood. Unless one has somehow figured out how to poison the blood with silver, poison has no effect on the vampire. Poison, alcohol, or substance has no effect.
Q: Can a vampire or shapeshifter regenerate lost limbs?
A: Smaller losses, such an eye, ear, fangs, finger or toe can be regenerated provided they weren't cut off with a silver blade. Something as big as hand, foot, arm or leg cannot be regenerated. However, they can be reattached and the tissue will heal itself 100%.
Q: True Blood posed a very good question about virgins and vampires. Would a woman sired as a virgin regenerate her hymen after every sexual encounter?
A: Tricky, but we're going to say the hymen is one of those things that does not regenerate. Yes, this might conflict with the previous regeneration question. Don't think to much on it.
Q: Those born as vampires age regularly until sometime between the ages of 15 and 35. What about children who are sired? Do they continue to age until they reach adulthood or are they stuck in their juvenile bodies for eternity?
A: Unfortunately, children or young teens are stuck permanently at whatever age they were sired. They can age slightly due to stress, but they would never truly grow up.
Q: The same question of werewolves and werefelines. Does a child infected with lycanthropy stop aging all together or do they grow up?
A: Children infected with lycanthropy continue to mature normally until adulthood.
Q: What are the effects of vampire blood if it ingested by humans?
A: Think of it as an aphrodisiac, causing a sexual high and rush of adrenaline. Addiction and withdrawal are possible.
Q: I read somewhere that its possible for vampires, lycans, and ailurans to age. What causes this?
A: Extreme stress, heartbreak, and loss can all cause immortals to age a few years.
