Class


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

Of course, we do not let just anyone become an Old Vampire.  Anyone we raise to those levels must have class.

Anyone who has money can mix in the correct circles and buy their way in to the correct establishments and clubs.

Our sort of people will know how to behave in all human upper class situations.

If need be, we can teach Debutante Vampires things such as which knife to use at the dinner table and how to address various people.

What we cannot teach is the ability to be at ease no matter what the situation nor the attitude that we are the superior beings.

We also look for taste; the ability to appreciate fine art, fine wine and other good comestibles from the bad, including music and the ability to dance.

A good dancer will always catch my eye, but unfortunately the only taste so many of them have is in their blood.

Occasionally our butler will inform us that a potential Old Vampire Servant is suited to be an Old Vampire and we will raise her or him.

The training period will usually take longer, which means we have to invest more in her or him.

Investments do not always pay off, no matter how much has been invested in them or how carefully they have been managed.

A Debutante Vampire may, on reaching full Old Vampire status, turn around and ally her or himself with your enemies.

This is usually because the training period has been badly handled, but sometimes the transition from human to vampire is a rough one and as Sire you can be blamed.

This sort of investment is not totally lost, as you have all sorts of information on the new Old Vampire and fully know her or him.
