There are various species of Vampires, each with their own need, and each with their own techniques & predatory skills. The most well-known being the Sanguine (blood), and Psy (energy), though with the absence of fangs, others are less romantic, and often forgotten. This is an ancient race of Vampire whose fate remains a mystery. It's believed they adapted & were absorbed by other races through mating. They lived in an ancient Earth, and were occupants of desert areas, living life through the crudest means of survival. They are certainly darker, and more raw in power than the Sanguine or Psy Vampires, and should be kept only by those who are experienced Vampire Keepers.
Aqua Vampires, who were documented under several names, the most repeated being "Aqulamia", dehydrated their victims, most times to death. Any who were caught in their traps, or were found wandering the desert alone, were open game for these Vampires who absorbed the water content of their prey through a type of pore in their hands. Once captured they would set their hands on the victim who then would be slowly drained of all water content in their skin, organs, blood, etc and left a dehydrated corpse. They hunted any living prey with water content. And, because prey usually came few & far between, the prey was usually dehydrated to death by multiple Vampires.
They were said to look like their surroundings; typically with sandy features, cracking mud-like skin, various colors of eyes & hair, though they possessed very little, if any, body hair, and short, stubbly hair on their head. They were bi-peds of human-like qualities and composition, and they could consume other foods than just water. If presented with rain, they could absorb the water through pores in their skin at a much faster & higher rate than any other living creature, and in order to fully be fed & satisfied by the water, they consumed & needed far larger amounts than humans.
Creation tales involving the Aqulamia state they originally lived in a lush, wet environment in which they flourished, but they angered the gods that governed them, and the lush civilization dried into a wilting desert. Of course, now we know that some of the world's most famous deserts today were once lush areas that dried into deserts & they believe at some point again in thousands of years those deserts may be lush areas again; so the god factor can be taken as you wish. The Vampires of the golden days of the Aqulamia race were said to be beautiful & exotic.
When this devastation of their natural habitat came about, it's presumed they lost a vast number of their species, which left pockets of Vampires in areas spread across the desert who would hunt in packs, and became extremely territorial. These are certainly Vampires for those who are experienced.

Secret to Keeping
These Dark Arts secrets were previously not known outside of family and Creepy Hollows collectors. They are secrets discovered by Ash and he has generously agreed to share them with all collectors because having the right secret and being able to properly handle DA spirits is more important.
Caring for your Sanguine Vampire is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality there is a way to keep your Sanguine Vampire under control if you feel it is becoming too energetic, too strong in manifestation or too "in your face". Place the vessel of the Sanguine Vampire near any of the following: pressed garlic, freshly squeezed acrylic paint, or chamomile tea leaves - any of the aforementioned for at least 2 hours, they become subdued and submissive. Only use this technique if you feel the Sanguine Vampire is becoming too strong for your liking- some collectors like their spirits to be "on the go" all the time so it is your judgment call.
