Around the World


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

There are many Old Vampires living around the world, although unfortunately European fiction focuses on those popularised by Bram Stoker or the current crop of feeble-minded fictional vampires who do not hunt humans.

When America and Australia were being colonised some European Old Vampires migrated there.  They keep a tight hold on all Old Vampires.

Old Vampires thrive in China.  There are more of them than in Britain partly because the Cultural Revolution was such a good breeding ground for them, partly because there is more prey.

I have met and have allies among many Old Vampires in China and Europe.  I have gathered information on Old Vampires in other countries from my duties.  There are few Old Vampires in Japan, but those that are still there are mostly very old and have an isolationist policy.

Old Vampires keep quiet in Africa.  Mobs can still be a reality for them and there seems to be no organisation for them.  Some of them will meet up occasionally in groups, but for what purpose, we have been unable to find out.

We know there are many in Africa because of the numerous wars, but many of these are either New Vampires drawn to the chaos and a few non-African Old Vampires moving to a new country.

Vampires are numerous in Asia, especially in India where there is lots of prey and ample opportunity for people to go missing.  Many vampires are still in Cambodia, where they congregated under the Killing Fields.

We know of a few Old Vampires in South America.  Those migrated there centuries ago and have the continent firmly in their grasp.

We do not know of any Old Vampires in the Middle East.  Despite all the wars there is something that keeps us out.
