The vampire is the undead creature of the night. He has a hatred of all that is living, as he must rely on the blood of the living to survive. The night is the vampire's kingdom. When the sun sets across Derlith, hordes of vampires come out to feast. During the night, a vampire is able to bite any living creature, doing massive damage in a single strike. He may also transform himself into a translucent mist, unable to be detected until the time of his attack. Contrary to popular belief, a vampire is not powerless when the sun comes up. A vampire is often able to hypnotize his victim, even in daylight. This renders an enemy harmless to the vampire, as the victim perceives the vampire to be a friend and thus will not attack. There aren't many organizations across Derlith which a vampire may join, as many are afraid of his unnatural power. At least one organization solely for vampires is rumored to exist somewhere in Derlith, however.

Note: Vampires must be chaotic.

Abilities: Bite, Mist, Hypnotize
