Encyclopedia of the Vampyre World

If there is in this world a well-attested account, it is that of the vampires.
Nothing is lacking: official reports, affadavits of well-known people,
of surgeons, of priests, of magistrates; the judicial proof is most complete.
And with all that,
Who is there who believes in vampires?

~Rousseau


The notion of the vampire is hardly unique to our culture or our time. Vampires have roamed the earth since the dawn of man in one form or another. Can an idea so pervasive be completely imaginary? We leave that question for you to decide. We are just the teachers, messengers, of the truth. Conclusions are your area of expertise. Below, we have provided the culmination of the Vampire Mythos in every culture, every reference, they are known to exist. Take care, you may not be prepared for what you discover.

Why do your locks and rumpled head-clothes show
'Tis more than usual sleep that made them so?
Why are the kisses which he gave betray'd
By the impression which his teeth has made?

- Ovid, Amores
