Internal structure and blood
Within the first hour of drinking blood, the vampires feel warm to touch, just as humans. This is due to the fact that, when turned into a vampire a few changes happen to the body’s internal structure.
The esophagus develops micro openings that soaks fresh blood like a sponge, and delivers the blood directly to the heart. The heart no longer beats but it will do so when it receives a fresh amount of blood.
The heart will pump the blood until the veins have filled within every part of the body; thus, a vampire will be warm such as a normal human would be.
Some vampires may continue feeding, upon which, the blood may be stored in the stomach for future use.
After blood fills the empty veins, the vampire’s tissue will soak it in and be replenished and the heart will stop pumping. The process of circulating the blood can take up to an hour or more. Since the heart stops pumping and blood is no longer circulating, the vampire will begin to feel cold once more.
Vampires can only feed on the blood of humans, animals will not suffice. This is due to the curse inherited through Lilith and Dracula.
In the first 100 to 200 years, Vampires must feed every three nights, or the processes of decomposition will eat away their tissue. Blood gives the vampire regenerative abilities, super human strength, speed, and other various abilities. Vampires eventually can sustain themselves a couple weeks before needed to kill again and lilin can go a month without needed to feed depending on powers used.
All vampires have the possibility to gain individual and unique powers upon their transformation. Blood grants them the ability to use such powers as ESP, flight, shape-shifting, controlling the weather, controlling animals, etc. It is a very rare occurrence for vampires to gain these unique powers and usually only those that are second and first generation vampires from Dracula have such powers.
Vampires and Lilins not only must feed from blood to physically keep alive, but the mentality and life essence that remains must be fed as well. The basic needs of feeding and sex must be satisfied. While blood nourishes the physical body, sex nourishes the mind and the dark essence that keeps the vampires from becoming demented beasts. Though not as constant as the need to feed on blood, if a vampire or lilin should stray from sexual energy to long, they eventually suffer delusions, rage, and loss of reality.
Creation of Lilins
Lilith is the mother of the Lilim “night-demons”, created when Lilith left the Garden of Eden.
After leaving Eden, Lilith mated with the fallen angels and bore children. The three angels of God that came to take her back to Adam, threatened to destroy her children if she did not return. Since Lilith was created immortal, they could not threaten her with death. Lilith, refused the angels and a war between the Lilim and Man ensued.
Lilith’s daughters tempted men with the fires of lust and fed upon their blood and the blood of their children. Demons soon joined with the Lilim and the Arch Angels summoned an army lead by Michael to destroy the Lilim.
Lilith was unable to control her lone daughter that began the war, and Lilith feared for the lives of her other children. Using her seductive powers, Lilith gained the help of Sariel one of the fallen Archangels who was still a servant of God. Sariel lusted after the daughters of men, thus he created a pact with Lilith.
Sariel had many names, one being Azrael, the Angel of Death. Sariel mated with Lilith and promised to grant their children immortality, though they would be cursed with the need for blood and to forever roam in darkness. Lilith considered this a betrayal and assaulted Sariel, who cursed Lilith and damned her to an undead life. however, Sariel left her with the ability to create children as per their pact, but she could only do this through her bite.
Lilith become the first vampire and through her anger created many lilins. Michael lead The Sons of Light against the Army of Darkness, which were demons, lilims, and lilins. The dark army was destroyed. Only a few lilins survived, which were hunted by men.
Lilith unable to bare the sorrow of losing her children, vanished.
The few lilins that lived, learned to hide in the darkness and use their powers to feed on humans. Through the years, the lilins’ name slowly spread. Eventually, an organization was created called the Order of the Sons of Light.
These vampires were Ancient and powerful, terrorizing villages for many centuries. They commanded power over the weather and animals. Many could turn to mist or become invisible.
For the most part, these lilins were solitary and vampires hunters learned their weaknesses.
All the ancient lilins were eventually destroyed (supposedly), leaving only the fledglings to roam. The fledglings did not command the power that their ancient predecessors had, and thus were easily hunted and destroyed.
When it seemed the world would be rid of lilins, in 1431 a man by the name of Dracula came by way of a pact with Lucifer. Dracula denounced God and joined with Lucifer who gave him incredible dark powers. He was able to move faster than the eye could see, tear humans apart with ease, resistant to sunlight. He was able to absorb memories through blood, hypnotize and pass through walls. He could shape shift into various forms, including bats, insects, demon dogs, masses of darkness and humanoid forms.
With Dracula the name of the Lilin vanished and the name vampire became dominant.
