All the Different Kinds of Vampires in V WARS
The world of V Wars changed when all of a sudden a group of people started turning into vampires and killing various humans in their path. However, thanks to Dr. Luther Swann, some more details about these new vampires and what makes them become who they are have become more clear. Unlike any other vampire show or TV show that you've seen, there's actually more than one type in this world.
The new vampires of the world are able to be split up between Bloods and Vourdalaks. While one of them tends to be the typical vampire that we're used to seeing, the other is one that's not seen or heard of so often. So what's the difference between them? And are there other vampire types in V Wars? Find out about the different types of vampires in V Wars here...
What are Bloods in V Wars?
The Bloods are thought to be normal vampires that we're used to seeing in everything. They are able to feed on anyone and everyone, although, those who they feed on don't survive the attack. They are also able to infect someone just by being around them through the pathogen that was discovered in the arctic that also affected Michael. According to Dr. Swann, the pathogen only turns some people into Bloods and it all links back to their genes that get altered once they come close to the pathogen.
Bloods typically look like humans except for when they feed and they seem to take on another form that includes their face changing into a creature and their teeth getting longer. They are also able to heal, particularly after feeding. After killing their victim, they have a chance of turning them into a vampire or, if the pathogen doesn't affect them, they stay dead.
What are Vourdalaks in V Wars?
The Vourdalaks are a different kind of vampire species that are separate from the Bloods. They are able to feed on someone without completely killing them and they produce a special kind of venom that gives their victim a similar high to a drug, making them actually enjoy getting their blood sucked by a Vourdalak.
Unlike Bloods who are able to feed on anyone and everyone, a Vourdalak is only able to feed on someone who they have a deep connection to. Danika realizes that she is able to keep her victims alive by not completely draining them of their blood and also keeping them hooked to her venom. However, if she accidentally kills one of her victims and they become a vampire, they also become a Vourdalak and the cycle continues.
What determines who becomes a Blood or a Vourdalak?
Dr. Luther Swann mentioned that it all comes down to genes. Just like how some people are not affected by the pathogen that Dr. Swann found in the arctic, others are affected in other ways. Since Danika and Mila are sisters, they share common enough DNA that it makes sense that they all turned into Vourdalaks. Meanwhile, Michael and the other Bloods' DNA turned them into that species of vampire instead.
Are there other kids of vampires on the show?
There's a good chance that these won't be the only kinds that fans will get to see. According to the V Wars graphic novel, that are more kinds of vampires out there depending on their DNA and where they come from. If the show does come back for season two, then we might get to explore them more and meet other kinds of vampires along the way.
