Here’s something I find interesting about Vampires, and, by extension, humans: they make magic juice.
They turn water into wine, wine into blood and blood into rocket fuel.
A Vampire drinks a pint of basic, common or garden blood, instantly runs it through their dried out, dead and dusty veins, and suddenly it’s magic blood, full of mystic potential and arcane energies.
How do they do it?
I have a theory that humans are already magic, eldritch dynamos pumping out constant, low level enchanted radiation. Like prayer wheels, forever turning, each rotation generating a fraction of a spark of power.
Vampires extract this power, enrich it and condense it.
Then we milk them, bottle it and ship it fresh to your door.
