This is probably the absolute worst place to post this as I forsee a giant argument but I'm stupid so why not. I started a project that incorporates monsters. I'm good with most of them but I'm iffy on Vampires. Dhampirs I feel more comfortable with but my friend who is living with me conveniently has a encyclopedia of Vampires. Lots of Babylonian myths as well as the oldest story written down which is falsely attributed to vampiric activity. The vampires we have today are a very good amount of fictionalization. Interestingly enough some theorize Bram Stokers Dracula as being Anti Darwinism as he openly rejected humanism and evolution which is interesting. But a lot old myths associate demons and vampires. The term Black mass is also a popular one. (A demonization of a Catholic mass seems laughably ironic since the concept of mass is very unchristian.) Any who I chose to use Dhampirs instead and I'm thinking of portraying Vampires as pure villains but what kind of vampire to use might be a tough choice. Or I could just keep Dhampirs and forget the vampire thing all together.
