Real Vampires? PART 1
This type of vampire is the base of most if not all fictional vampires. Due to ethnic changes there are several species in this category. There is a theory that demonic possession after death was the cause of vampires which would explain why they are said to dislike religious items. No matter the amount of species there are in this category none of them have even come close to the amount of powers of the fictional vampires that are based off this type. Most of the evidence on Immortal drinkers is unconvincing. This type of vampire is the least likely out of all the vampires to actually exist in real life.
Some common humans feel the need to drink blood. Some drink blood for religion while others believe that blood has powers. In some cultures it is believed that drinking the blood of an enemy would give the drinker great wisdom and power.
However there are some people who suffer from a disorder called Renfield's Syndrome (named after the character in Dracula) feel the need to drink from living things to stay alive. Renfields is considered a form of insanity and is responsible for some people to commit violent crimes to get blood.
Most people who claim to be real vampires described traits from popular fictional vampires. Those people are the fakes among the occult vampires. There is a theory that people who fake being a vampire do it because they like the attention or they want to act out a fictional vampire from the stories they loved.
Some of the "mortal" blood drinkers claim to be immortal but they lack the wisdom that comes with the age they claim to be which lead me to believe that these people are also fakes.
Why would someone do ? well they might just like book vampires a little to much or it could be that they think that being a vampire is cool.
The real mortal drinkers might suffer from a psychological need to drink blood. There are also those whith Renfield's syndrome. If a person has Renfield's syndrome they usually tend to show signs of having it at a young age.
How can a person get Renfields?
Most people with the syndrome are male and it is usually sparked by an event in childhood in which the sufferer associates the taste and sight of blood with excitement. As the person gets older the attraction to the blood becomes sexual.
Renfield's syndrome has three stages...
Stage 1 is autovampirism which is when the person will drink his or her own blood even if it means cutting themselves to get it.
Stage 2 is zoophagia, this stage is when the person eats or drinks from live animals. Some might obtain animal blood from a butcher.
Stage 3 is true vampirism. In this stage the person drinks from humans. some have even gone so far as to break into blood banks to steal blood. Most of the people with syndrome that have committed violent crimes are at this stage in the syndrome.
