||Affected by Daylight?
||Die by Day?
|Laurell K. Hamilton
||Strictly human, and alive.
||The old ones, or masters.
||Used to be no, now we're not so sure...they can definitely call shapeshifters.
||Yeah, but different vampire lines are capable of developing different powers. Generically: super strength, super speed, mass mind clouding, heightened hearing and smell, night vision.
||Politics and all. Beware of the Council.
||What do you think? Not without a meal first, at least. Gotta build up that strength. By the way, careful of Vlad syndrome. Baby vampires!
||Yep, but they can wake up before full dark if strong enough. The debate about vampires having souls is still open.
||No, they're hemophages.
||Nope. They are humans with a form of lukemia that develops in late childhood.
||Human, but they can take blood through those donation packet thingies.
||No. People can't fly, silly.
||Uh uh, again the whole human drawback thing. You understand...
||Mind-clouding, super strength, super speed.
||No, not really. Fairly solitary hunters.
||Do humans have sex drives?
||Again. HUMAN. They don't sleep, though.
||Human and alive, or recently dead.
||Errr...we don't think so. You can never tell.
||Mind-clouding, dreamwalking, telepathy, super stength, super speed, able to hear heartbeats, skin and eyes practically
|To an extent, yes. It depends which country you're in.
||No, and what a shame it is. All love is strictly emotional.
||It depends. There are "half-vampires" too.
||Half-vampires aren't, all the rest are.
||Oh buddy, it's complicated. There are time limits on how long things can be dead, and there is a strict menu--animal and human.
||They don't fly, they flit. It's like a form of hopping really fast and far.
||So far, nope.
||Mind-clouding, telepathy, telekinesis, super strength, really STRONG nails (be jealous), super speed, heightened smell and sight.
||Yeah. Little elaboration.
||Darren is still a little kid, you sick freaks.
||If full vampire. Being a mudblood has its advantages.
||No, they are very much alive. Vampires can only be created from humans that carry the belladonna antigen in their blood, and die early (by 30) unless they are changed.
||Hee. Yeah, they explode into an inferno of death.
||Of course, fresh human. But they also take stale blood from blood banks, as well as animal.
||No, but they can jump high.
||The ancient ones can, but we're talking ANCIENT.
||Super strength, speed, sight, and hearing. All emotions and feelings are magnified. Each vampire has unique characteristics, like psychic flashes or the ilk.
||Sort of, more like the vamps take care of each other and have a code against hurting those of the blood. They're loners, but a little more civilized in the sense that they don't try and kill each other on sight.
||Since they're alive, they don't die...they just fall into a really, really deep sleep.
|L. J. Smith
||No, as long as they're wearing a talisman.
||Human and animal.
||Yes, if they're in the right form.
||Yes, at full power, and into any form.
||Night vision, kinetic and telepathic Powers, super strength, heighened smell and hearing. Affected by vervain.
||Nope. Solitary hunters by nature.
||Yep, but no raunchy sex scenes.
||No, but they do need sleep.
||Nope. They're special.
||Animals and humans.
||Again yes, if they're in the right form.
||Yes, into any form, but power doesn't really count here.
||Night vision, mind-clouding, heightened hearing and smell, super strength and speed, able to beat the crap out of you with their auras.
||A loose hierarchy...basically, if you live, you're lucky or one tough son-of-a-bitch.
||Yes, but very rarely, and no elaboration.
||Nope. They don't like the sunlight much, but they can still go out in it without blowing up.
|Vivian Vande Velde
||Humans, strictly humans.
||Not that we know of.
||Super strength, super speed, mind-clouding, night vision. Able to hear heartbeats. Classic vampire.
||Nope, but they do have e-mail!
||So far, we're only sure that there can be sexual attraction.
||Dead as a doornail, baby.
|Annette Curtis Klause
||Humans and animals.
||No. You can never tell with Christopher, though.
||They are nothing without their grave dirt. Otherwise, super strength and speed, heightened vision. Heightened hearing.
||They normally try and kill each other. Troubled pasts, and all that.
||Again, they were only kids.
||As dead as dead gets.
|P. N. Elrod
||You can eat people, but bovine is preferred. Grade A 100% Beef.
||He can turn into smoke. Does that count?
||Super strength, super speed, heightened hearing and smell, telepathy.
||Not that we've seen, he's sort of a loser.
||In closets, boxes, trunks, wherever he can fit.
||Nope. At least we're sure now.
||Super strength, super speed, heightened smell and hearing, soundless movement.
||Seeing as she's the LAST vampire, I'd say...no. There was once upon a time, though.
||Definitely. Very definitely.
