Stereotype


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

New Vampires fully embrace the stereotype of a vampire.  I hear one was killed for being a vampire in America.

The person who killed him is believed to be mad, which is a belief that will have been encouraged.

New Vampires are always careless; running around in black hair (mostly dyed) and black clothes with piercings everywhere.  We are careful to hide and not arouse suspicion.

I myself have blond hair, take care to cultivate a full tan at all times and am short of stature.  Most of us dye our hair blond, but mine is natural

All this acts as camouflage : it eases suspicion among prey and keeps we vampires from becoming recognised.

Of course, the goth scene has done a lot to mitigate recognition of us among humans, but old habits die hard with we Old Vampires; especially habits which have evolved to keep us from dying.

If you went to an Old Vampire party, where only Old Vampires and sometimes prey are allowed, you would find a room full of blond-haired people with short hair in the latest fashions.

We do not wear black.  As I have said, old habits die hard and since black is what everyone knows vampires wear we eschew it.

A male Old Vampire will be seen in a sombre brown, dark blue or grey suit, but never in a black one, unless she or he was forced to attend a human funeral.  The suit would be bought for the occasion and burned afterwards.

What is true to the stereotype is that we are beautiful.  We have money and money buys people who can choose your fashions and cut your hair well.

My servant, Jane, has to do this for me because my lack of money means she has to fulfil all functions of Vampire Servants.
