Phenomena in artwork: A vampire

Shown in the series vampires are largely consistent with the classical ideas. They sleep in coffins, can fly and walk on walls, are not reflected in the mirrors. Vampires can turn into bats (or creatures), dogs, squirrels, rats, or fog. They are afraid of the sun and crosses (even the crossed fingers), it hurts to be in Church and with the word "God" (and possibly other with religion-related words) out of their mouth with flame. In contact with a vampire to sunlight it instantly ignites and burns.

In the first series of the second season it turns out that if a vampire, taking the form of a mist gets into the air cleaner, then returned in his true form, he loses its color (becomes white).

Each vampire has their own special ability. Some can remotely setting things on fire, others become invisible.

Vampires can influence people's minds. They know how to contact the person remotely ("over the air"), while he hears the voice of the vampire in his head. They know how to enchant people, and different vampires this skill is developed in different ways. A vampire with a fairly strong skill of hypnosis can cause a person to recall his past lives (Yes, vampires believe in reincarnation).

Vampires feed on blood, preferring human. This delicious delicacy is considered to be the blood of a virgin. After drinking the blood of a drunk person or under the influence of narcotic substances, the vampire also feels their effect. While vampires can't eat human food, from the slightest portion of their extremely nauseous (but the taste of the food they feel).

In contrast to classical concepts, vampires do not rush to collect or recalculate scattered on the floor small items.

In the series there is a special kind of vampire and energy, taking not the blood of people and their energy. From an ordinary person, it can be distinguished only by the eyes, which occasionally glow white-blue. Such vampires do not fear sunlight and can without any negative consequences to come into the Church. Energy vampires can absorb the energy of people through the Internet, doing trolling on forums and social networks. In addition, they can feed on the energy of regular vampires, and in the case of regular absorb a large number of energy vampires getting old. The blood of the victim of the energy vampire in the conventional food to the vampires. If energy vampire gets unlimited power (for example, becomes the boss, and people are forced to listen to him, not being able to refuse), his strength multiplied. He gets the ability to fly, move objects with your mind, to drink from the bottle at a distance, and create copies of itself. When excess food head energy vampire grows in size and his bald head grow thick hair. The absorption of energy of living beings (people, plants) and the vampire takes him less power. Copies created energy vampire can feed on the energy of each other and even drain each other to death.

Vampires have a fairly advanced and complicated designed community. They have rules and laws, and enforces the vampire Council. Vampires who have broken the law on trial and could be sentenced to death. Fugitive from justice stalking and trying to kill other vampires.

Vampires can have sex and occasionally have orgies. Bad Orgy is considered a great shame for its organizers. Most bats are the vampires, who are ashamed to return to human form; such mice are easy to learn, they fly low.

Vampires at war with werewolves for a thousand years. The reason for their mutual hostility, we do not open.

To become a vampire, bitten mortal must drink the blood after the bite (you may dilute it with alcohol). The transformation occurs gradually over a long time. While the new believer feels symptoms similar to a cold, flying in a dream, smokes when exposed to sun light on the skin, spontaneously reacts to a crucifix, but his reflection begins to lead an independent life. To complete the process of becoming a vampire must drink the blood of a mortal.

Vampires are skeptical about the existence of ghosts. In addition, the second series of the second season it turns out that a vampire has his ghosts: when a person turns into a vampire, to others he dies, his soul separates from the body. Energy vampires ghosts there, which perhaps suggests that they are alive.

His body decomposed, he smells like rotten meat and the limbs come off at the slightest touch. The zombies are fast moving and shows aggression. He eats whatever he can catch: insects, small animals and birds. While the zombies are constantly trying to attack and the people around him.

For some strange reason, the zombie gains the ability to move around the ceiling.

The walking dead cannot be killed: it does not apply exit wounds, falling from a great height, folding neck, drowning or electric shock. Is it possible to kill it in the classical way, destroying the brain, or magically remains unknown.

A Ghost is the spirit of a deceased person or animal, who has remained on earth with unfinished business. In the second series of the second season it turns out that ghosts a vampire (except energy): when a person turns into a vampire, to others he dies, his soul separates from the body.

The series shows the classic ghosts that look like a translucent figure, emitting a soft blue glow. They look the same as at the time of death, and have the same injury. The ghosts can change their appearance: to eliminate the injury or to turn his head in the monster's head. Ghosts are intangible, the real world objects pass through them, leaving no trace. On the subjects after this is a thick layer of ectoplasm. The ghosts themselves do not experience difficulties in the interaction with objects of the material world. They can move objects, to wear a hat, to turn on the lamp to move into dolls.
