I make no secret of the fact that Anne Rice is my all-time favorite author. Her work and the narrative behind it continue to inspire me. So, in honor of AMC’s Vampire Chronicles adaption (in which I have stock), I have produced a brief tutorial on vampires and the vampire hierarchy that is currently prevalent in popular fiction, which we can thank Anne Rice for (she also wrote some kickass erotica, but that’s another story for another day).
One of the most important things to know when trying to categorize a vampire is that vampires are classified based on what they use as a food/energy source. Although it is the most popular, not all vampires consume blood.
So, let us begin with the most common sorts of vampires. Keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive list of all vampire types, but rather the most common vampires in popular media. Also, you must try to play this What Kind Of Vampire Are You quiz.
What Kind Of Vampire Are You
It’s that time of year when everyone’s mind wanders to vampires. But they’ve gotten so ingrained in popular culture that it’s fair to argue they’re now year-round phenomena. There’s HBO’s massively successful True Blood, the CW’s The Vampire Diaries, and Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling Twilight novel and the films based on the books.
Vampires, however, are more than just pop culture figures, according to religious studies researcher Joseph Laycock (GRS’13). They truly exist. Laycock analyzes youngsters, stay-at-home parents, grandmothers, and professionals in his book Vampires Today: The Truth About Modern Vampirism (2009), all uninteresting subjects except for one: they claim to feed off of other people’s energies and occasionally consume human blood.
Laycock: I discovered the Atlanta Vampire Alliance, which was doing a 1,000-question survey for persons who claimed to be vampires, while I was teaching high school in Atlanta. I found it fascinating that people defined their identities using survey data, so I wrote a paper about it and presented it at the American Academy of Religion in San Diego. Two journals approached me about publishing the paper, and then a Praeger representative approached me about writing a book. They knew something I didn’t: vampires are in high demand as a result of the Twilight series.
Then there are the lifestyle vampires, who are drawn to the aesthetic. They may enjoy vampire films or the author Anne Rice, and they may own a set of fake fangs or dress up in Victorian clothes to go to nightclubs. But, at the end of the day, they realize they are no different than anyone else since they do not feed.
About the quiz
Real vampires, on the other hand, feel that if they do not feed—either on blood or on energy—their physical, mental, and emotional health will suffer. Real vampires are classified into three types: sanguinarians, psychics, and hybrids. Sanguinarians consume relatively little amounts of human blood, usually only a few drops.
Do they bite humans on the neck?
Not generally, because it is excruciatingly painful and extremely unsanitary. The majority of sanguinarians feed with a syringe or a lancet.
How do psychic vampires get their food?
People have auras that safeguard their energy and chakras, and psychic vampires feed by sipping life energy through a tentacle attached to those auras—though neither the auras nor the tentacles are visible to everyone. Psychic vampirism has been mentioned in esoteric literature since the nineteenth century, and the belief that some people borrow or take energy from others is widespread throughout Asia.
Is it ethical to feed on people’s energy?
Most vampires believe that feeding is OK as long as they travel to a location with a large number of people and use just tiny quantities of energy. Feeding grounds are preferable in places with a lot of energy, such as a rock concert or a Pentecostal church service. Many vampires have willing donors, people with a lot of energy who doesn’t mind giving part of it away. Tantric feeding, which involves sexual intimacy, is another option.
