Hierarchy of the Vampires
Blood Gods- the original Samsarra Six along with Amira and Liadan. There are only eight total. They are the ruling class of Vampires and are the most true and pure form of Vampire. They are completely immortal and cannot only feast on the blood of humans but also eat food. The are invincible. No item known to man can kill them. They can be extremely dangerous due to their true nature. They possess the kiss of the first Vampire Lilith and all of her traits. They were born under an unusual astrological alignment that made them be able to withstand her kiss and become like her.
Blood Borns- vampires created through magical rites. They live extremely long lives but are not immortal, eventually they will die. They possess some traits like other Vampires, a lust for blood, the ability to control others, invisibility. If they drink the blood of a Blood God, they will become immortal but they can be killed.
Pure Bloods-vampires born of the union of either two Blood Gods, two Blood Borns or the union of a Blood God and a Blood Born. They possess the qualities of both parents. Their lust for blood is slightly heightened because of the union . They are extremely sensitive to the emotions of others and are highly empathic, being able to communicate before they are born. They like Blood Gods cannot die.
Half Bloods-vampires born of the union of a human and either a Blood God or a Blood Born. They possess the same lust for blood as other vampires but they are slightly more dangerous than the higher vampires as their blood is not pure. They are only half vampire, with half of their humanity remaining. They often cannot control their human emotions. This leads to bad decisions and they have to be carefully monitored. They act on the moment and live for the feeling.
Hybrids- hybrids are humans who have been turned. The only hybrids that exercise control of their nature are ones who have been infected by Blood Gods. The less pure the strain of vampirism, the more dangerous the hybrids become. Their lust for blood is insatiable. They have lost the ability to live in the daylight. They are easily killed by other vampires, sometimes even humans. Their lack of regard for life is what lead to the strife between vampires and humans.
