Notable Locations & Items

Other Noteworthy Information

  • Vampires (1.2): From what we’re told, bloodsucking is considered barbaric and largely banned but, on a vampire’s tenth birthday, they are allowed to suck blood from a goat, which Irina notes is thrilling.
    • What Do They Drink (1.2): Milk is often a blood substitute
    • Senses (1.2): Vampires don’t have a strong sense of taste or a palette at all but rather enjoy food through their sense of smell and appreciation for certain textures. Also, while they can feel hot and cold, it doesn’t necessarily bother them outside of the extremes.
    • Sunlight (1.1): Sunlight doesn’t kill vampires, but they do suffer from heatstrokes easily
    • Weaknesses (1.1 & 1.2) Crosses and garlic do absolutely nothing to vampires
