Disease File 003: "Vampirism"
rating: 0+x

Case Number: DF-003

Researcher(s): Rosalyn Stradwick

Threat Level: Morphasia

Nature and Origin of Disease: Unknown, spread through bites, first observed in the eastern region of Camulan.


Background: The disease has no known cause other than pre-existing vampires. The nature of the disease is unknown, except that it can be spread through bites, most notably to the neck. Biting is enhanced by the extension of the canines. It is recommended to steer clear of any person with unusually pale skin, and keep the various paraphernalia known to be a weakness of vampires on your person at all times; silver, garlic, crucifixes, and wooden stakes. If you are not confident in your own physical abilities, rely on your speed and dexterity to escape a vampire. While vampires can move far quicker than a mortal, they can only do so in short bursts.

Symptoms: Vampirism is a contagious disease that results in the following symptoms:

  • Pallor of the skin.
  • Difficulty breathing.
  • Joint pain.
  • Increased appetite and thirst.
  • Lengthening of the canines.
  • A desire to drink blood, human or otherwise.
  • Enhanced physical ability.
  • Symptoms commensurate with the stages of death, including rigor mortis.
  • Incredible resistance to injury.
  • Aversion to silver and garlic.
  • Aversion to religious symbols.
