Vampire Butlers


*** DISCLAIMER – THIS BLOG IS FICTION AND THE AUTHOR IS NOT LIABLE FOR THE ACTION OF ANYONE WHO PERSISTS IN THINKING IT IS NOT FICTION ***

Old Vampires like to employ Vampire Butlers with more Status than them.  There are many advantages to this.

Firstly, and most importantly, is that the more Status your Vampire Butler has the better your establishment is and the more people will want to come and see you.

If your Vampire Butler is five hundred years old or more, they will know everything about everyone in your current country and have many contacts abroad.

It is not unusual for other people’s servants to visit a Vampire Butler they have served under for advice in what can literally be a sticky situation.

If I went to see my butler and he was advising a servant I would pretend I was going elsewhere.

As an employer, I am expected not to know what the servants do unless they are serving us.  Some things do leak out, but I erase them from my memory.

A good Vampire Butler is worth double his weight in gold and many peccadilloes are overlooked.

Secondly, a Vampire Butler with more Status than her or his employers can advise them on subterfuges and strategies for dealing with other Old Vampires.

They will sometimes spot a flaw, sometimes say their former employer tried that and it didn’t work and sometimes say that the plan is perfectly sound.

Once a Vampire Butler has moved establishments, we do not ask him about anything that went on at his former establishment.  Discretion is absolutely necessary for a Vampire Servant.

Vampire Butlers generally prefer to stay in an establishment for a couple of centuries.  Some have been known to stay in the same establishment for five to ten centuries.
