Higher grade vampires differ from their lower grade counterparts in a few ways depending on the species.

  • True Higher Vampire (Vampires Superiores)
    • Camouflage- A True Higher Vampire is capable of appearing just like a human though their canine teeth are a little longer than a normal human's.
    • True Higher vampires don't need to drink blood to survive. Rather, it's like an addictive alcohol to them, in that they can become drunk from it. Additionally, drinking blood increases the strength of their abilities. Though the also suffer the effects of whatever is in the blood itself (i.e alcohol, poison, etc).
    • Can turn invisible, bewitch with their gaze and possess telepathy.
    • Immunity to sunlight to the point of not being bothered by it though it can somewhat hamper some of their powers.
    • Polymorphy (Limited)
      • Can take on a human form, in this and all other forms at will, a True Higher Vampire can evade detection from magical charms such as a Witchers medallion or a Mage's magical senses.
      • Can take on a humanoid-bat hybrid form, in this form, a True Higher Vampire has the ability of Claw Retraction, as this is one of the main offensive abilities of this form, along with superhuman speed and strength, a single True Higher Vampire can tear apart squads of men in seconds.
      • Can take on a huge bat form. This form can also fly, but this ability can only be done during a full moon.
      • Can turn into mist to access areas that wouldn't be accessable by normal means.
    • True Immortality- A True Higher Vampire can only be permenantly killed by another True Higher Vampire.
      • In the event the True Higher Vampire is 'killed' by someone or something that is not another True Higher Vampire it results in a regenaritive coma, though the amount of damage done to them determines their recovery time (may take months, years or decades depending on the damage). This coma can be sped up by another True Higher Vampire 'nursing' the other back to health accelerating the process by leaps and bounds.
    • Unique powers- A True Higher Vampire usually has a singular unique gift that they alone possess, for example:
    • Immunities:
      • Silver- Does not cause discomfort or pain by touching, though higher levels of damage with this medium cause pain.
      • Fire- Does not cause discomfort or pain by touching, though higher levels of damage with this medium cause pain.
      • Most mainstream ways of extermination. (Cuts, blunt force damage, etc) If it does damage slower than the vampire heals its not effective.
    • Resistances: Iron and steel do not cause as much damage as silver does to them so using a silver sword is preferable when fighting them.
    • Weaknesses: True Higher Vampires do take damage from strong fire spells/signs, Black Blood Potion and Vampire Oil.
  • Alp
    • Alps don't need to drink blood to survive. Rather, it's like alcohol to them, in that they can become drunk from it. Additionally, drinking blood increases the strength of their powers.
    • Alps are supposedly weaker than their cousin species of Bruxae but are faster than them.
    • Alp saliva makes one fall asleep but causes horrible nightmares.
    • Alps are capable of limited polymorphy.
      • Can take on a womanoid form, usually with red hair and pointed ears like elves. They have been known to infiltrate elven society to avoid suspicion in olden days.
      • Can take on their hybrid form, with yellow or red eyes, and what appears to be scab like growths on their chest and limbs, this is confirmed to be unhealed damage from the sun, though they are resistant to it, they can appear almost black if they get too much sun.
      • Can take on the form of animals such as a great black dog
    • Prefers to feed on sleeping people and creatures.
    • Like their cousin the Bruxa, an Alp is capable of emitting a shrieking sonic scream whose shock wave can incapacitate its target.
