Becoming a Vampire

There are three main ways to become a vampire; by birth, by bite, and by death. The second is explanation enough in and of itself. A vampire bites and feeds from a male or female, and whether it is the result of recurring feeding or one incident of feeding that led to death, he or she then becomes on of the undead. According to folklore from different cultures across the globe, there are numerous signs that a child is born a vampire, or that a corpse has become one after death. There are signs that one might give that they have been bitten and are turning into a vampire, such as shying away from religious talk, or items, lessening hygiene and foul breath, have newly begun to sleepwalk, as well as anemic tendencies.

Some of the causes for vampirism in a child are being born on certain holy days, new moons, or seasonal equinox, or being conceived on those days, born with a red caul on their head, too much hair, an extra nipple, two hearts. The habits of the child may also indicate vampirism, such as if it was weaned too soon, or if the baby continues nursing even after it has been weaned. Dying before baptism as a baby is another possible way to turn into a vampire infant. There’s also being born the seventh son of a seventh son; but this can also be taken as a good omen as well. Some reasons fall on the mother; if she stared at a vampire, or did not eat enough salt while she was pregnant, her child might be born a vampire. Other reasons are curses, either after the baby has been born, or while still in the womb.

One can also become a vampire if certain customs are not observed after death. In some areas of Romania it is believed that burying a corpse face up will result in vampirism, while others remain steadfast that the only way is to die as a vampire’s victim. Improper burial ceremonies, no burial, as well as shadows falling across a corpse, the wind from the Russian Steppe blowing over a corpse, even having a cat, dog, or other animal jump over the corpse has been believed to be a certain cause of vampirism. Some believe it is the way the person dies that makes the vengeful spirit of the vampire linger, such as those were died violently, with murders that went unavenged, or even death by drowning. In other cultures, the actions of others dictate the vampire change in a corpse; some believe that stealing the ropes used to bury a corpse will cause the dead to rise, while others believe that if the corpse has a sleepwalking brother, it will come back as a vampire.

  19. Vampress6/6/6 July 13, 2009 - 1:20 am Reply

    Hello fellow vampire believers. I just have to say that if you believe in the bible, then you should believe in vampires. Vampires existed since Adam and Eve.
    I bet you didn’t know this: Adam’s first wife is name Lilith and she became the mother of demons and Satan’s wife. She also is a vampire, so the bible says, which is where most myths of vampires come from. Plus, Judas was thought to have turned into a vampire when he comitted suicide, but it’a a pretty vague explanation and theory for his vamprism. If you want to know more, you can google about it on the net.

    Cynthia.

    • VampiresFTW December 13, 2009 - 5:38 pm Reply

      I have never heard anything about Adam’s first wife before!!! That’s very interesting!

  20. Rolfmoa July 13, 2009 - 1:28 am Reply

    hey, um i no this i stupid, but would a vampire be attracted to the blood of… ur period? just wondering coz it b kinda sik if it was so.

    • VampiresFTW December 13, 2009 - 5:39 pm Reply

      Why would it be so? My stomache just started hurting at that comment. It would be TOO sick if I’m wrong….

  21. Enya July 13, 2009 - 1:15 pm Reply

    um vampiress 6/6/6

    none of that is facts.. lilith is the name they gave the could be mistranslated part in the bible when it says “god made man and women” then it goes and later says that god made eve out of adam’s rib. it can be translated 2 different ways. first with lilith where god made man and women then went back and made a second. 2nd that the bible backtracks and retells the story in detail.

    it also doesn’t say anything in the bible about anyone being a vampire.

    and on top of all that no the myths of vampires did not start for from the bible. if you did research on it then you would know that the research as shown that the myths started for decaying bodies. where people would dig up graves to find that the bodies where pale and swollen, with reddish liquid running from the nose and mouth. the liquid was though to be the blood from their last victim and they where swollen b/c they where full of blood. but the truth of that was that most bodies swell up when a person dies.. and the reddish liquid was the acids in the stomach decomposing and where pushed up and out of the body through the nose and mouth. and the some of this research says this started around the time of the black pleag where alot of people where dieing and they often had to dig up graves to put more people in them b/c they where running out of room to put bodies.

    also you need to look into they myths of vampires around the itme of adam and eve as many of those myths are quite different from the one you told…

    anyways… do a little more research…

    It’s sad to see how much most of you want to believe in something that has been misunderstood since it was invented by some severely disturbed individual many many years ago. The word escapism comes to mind. Find real hobbies, people.

    Oh, if there are any pretty girls out there that want to be bitten, mail me. Preferably under 26 years old. Darkish hair is a bonus.

    The second method is false.A human becomes a vampire when their thirst for blood and their rage reaches near impossible limits.This then creates a sub-conscious version of themselves.A human can also become a Vampire if they become conscious of their inner demons.As for feeding,any self respecting Vampire wouldn't hunt for human blood,they would take it from a willing donor.We are not at all like human kind has been led to believe we are.

    Why would any sane vampire give away their identity? That’s the whole point in staying in hiding and not telling the world they exist- because they have to stay hidden. So don’t lie and say your a vampire, because if you were you would not annonunce it to everyone.

    there are so many of you who want to become a vampire. the pain and suffering is over looked. killing people is that of which demons do. you’d never see the sun again. you would have to watch as all your loved ones died. if god is real i pray for you all. he left me behind, and ill walk alone forever. perhaps ill find someone worthy of being as evil as me and ill snatch them away from the rest of humanity.
