Okay, so to start I have to list off the character types. This is a very specific rp, and the character types are meant to be balanced very well. And while I have a very good idea of what I want the limits and abilities of each character type to have, I realize that I always forget things that people catch, and I beg you to bear with me.
Humans are pretty simply. They are people. They make up roughly half of the worlds new population, and have a distrust of all those who are not human. They are fearful of most things, and physically weaker than all the other races.
Humans with elf blood in them have the ability to tap into ley lines, making them weak ley line wizards. They have no where near the potency to store and use energy as a witch or an elf.
Humans can also become a 'low blood vampire' by drinking from a true undead vampire, although they gain nothing but the ability to pull an aura and become an undead if completely drained of blood.
Vampires are divided into three categories.
Low Blood Vampires are humans who have been bitten and then drank from and undead vampire themselves. They are the lowest of the low, and are often passed around by other vampires as chew toys or favors. They have almost no special abilites, though are at a very high risk of dying. What they can do is use what is called a hunters aura to strike fear or desire into those that they wish, though only at night, and only during times of high emotion. The aura itself is also very weak, and only truly useful against other humans or the weak willed.
[hider=2. High Blood Living]
High Blood vampires are those born with the vampire virus inside them, due to one or both parents being living vampires of some sort. They are gifted with the strength of the undead, albiet, a much smaller amount. Even the smallest of high blood vampires can kill humans with ease. Snapping bones and the like do take some effort, although it is within the ability of even the youngest vampire. High blood vampires also crave blood with a nearly insatiable lust that comes upon them stronger when they don't feed. Yet, it is not beyond control. A living vampire only has to feed every 3-4 days in order to keep it under control.
High blood vampires are a little different than other vampires. Their aura is able to be used at any time of the day although it is significantly weaker during the day. Also, it has the same limitations, being unable to affect those with strong wills. High blood vampires also exude pheromones that stick to everything they touch. These build up over time, and trigger hunger fits if matched with someone who can be food. It is an instinctual response and is uncontrollable. The smell of the the vampires natural scent mixing with the other persons is a powerful aphrodisiac for the vampire.
Also concerned with feeding is fear. Strong emotions like fear trigger a reaction in living vampires much stronger than anything else. With all these scent based instincts, they are much stronger on a non-practicing vampire, who has not fed in awhile, than in a vampire who feeds often. If you live with a high blood vampire, you should make sure they are practicing on other people if they are not feeding from you, or you will end up dead or a slave. Within college environments, high blood vamps are always roomed with other high bloods for safety.
High blood vampires can give the virus to humans, although they cannot turn them fully, as it requires an undeads blood to do so.
The undead are true monsters, devoid of soul and emotion. They have no concious, and care for nothing more than their next meal. Yet, they play by the rest of the worlds rules, because it is a game to them, and keeps them from growing bored. In each city, the vampires population is often seperated into one or two camarillias, with an undead master vampire. The larger the city, the more powerful the vampire.
An undead can do just about anything, moving faster than anything that is mortal, and can break a person without a second thought. This makes them very dangerous.
