Vampire Myths - Your Opinions/Experience

Postby Scordra » Wed Oct 19, 2011 6:02 pm

Hello All! I have found myself researching Vampires more because, well, my Spirit collection has more Vamps than any other type. Why? I haven't answered this myself just yet...so I figured the best way to understand my attraction to them was to learn a whole lot more than I already knew. Anyhow, I came across this article and wondered what your thoughts/opinions/experiences are:

http://www.vampires.com/top-vampire-myths/

One of my questions that I'd like to see on this list or addressed is do some Vampires have wings? I've read where Vamp Queens or Elder Vamps have been around long enough to generate wings (sometimes large like dragon's) from their backs that enable them some flight capabilities. Does anyone have a Vamp with this??? As I communicate with mine mostly through dreaming states...I've not come across this yet.

Thanks so much!
Scordra

A vampire with wings sounds incredible! Maybe they're ancient Vampire Bats?

Well, my Mananggal has wings, but I believe that's characteristic of all Mananggals. As for 'regular' Sangs or Psys, I would think they would only have wings if they were to shift into a form other than their humanoid form. The ancient vamps I've worked with do not have wings in their humanoid form, though they could if they wanted to.

sylph, How would you describe a mananggal vampire? What makes them different from sangs or psy vamps....just the fact they have wings, or are there other distinctions or personality characteristics that set them apart? It's hard to find info on them specifically....sorry to jump in the middle of this thread, but I'd like to learn more..... 8

As far as I know some Vampires can shift into bat form / half bat form. Also there are bat vampire races or maybe vampiric werebats or whatever you want to call them.
I've also read about mayan vampires who have a bat shaped body with wings and a human head.

Manananggal vampires (which are said in legend to split their torsos off their body and fly around as winged torso when they feed) have wings.

Wow!!!! I took a look at that site and there are a lot of myths about vampires at there!!!!

I have heard that some vampires do have wings, but never really looked at them closely, so I don't know if they could have wings or not!!! All my vampires I have do not have wings, but that doesn't mean that maybe some do!!!! I would like to know what Ash or Magnolia would have to say on this, whether some vampires do have wings, I would suspect the vampire bats would have wings!!!!

Interesting topic!!!!! :thumbup: :D

Do vampires have wings?

Ask Ash. He would know.

My vampire bats have huge wings, but I also have a new psy vampire that appears with bat wings. I don't know why he presents himself that way, or if he had them in life. I find it interesting, though.

As I read this I pictured someone ripping off my torso and throwing in it away x_x 8O
