The Vampyre “In many parts of Greece it is considered as a sort of punishment after death, for some heinous crime committed whilst in existence, that the deceased is not only doomed to vampyrise, but compelled to confine his infernal visitations solely to those beings he loved most while upon earth—those to whom he was bound by ties of kindred and affection.” ― John William Polidori, The Vampyre; a Tale

Requires Seasoned
You possess an augmented or inhuman body.
Used by Benny Scappetti, Created by BobDylan530.

Benny is transformed into a vile creature of the night! His skin has faded to a deathly pale, only regaining something close to human complexion in the immediate aftermath of feeding on human blood, and his irises are a dark blood red, though they fade slightly if he hasn't fed in some time. His visage easily fades into nothing when it is shrouded in shadow, leaving only a faint impression of nasty red eyes for those who know where to look.

He withers when exposed to direct sunlight or when he has been unable to feed in the past day, but otherwise has gained inhuman strength, speed, and irresistibility from his devil's bargain.

You gain the following benefits as long as you are not in direct sunlight and you have fed in the last 24 hours.

You are permanently and visibly transformed: into a fearsome vampire, with deathly pale skin and blood-red irises. You are considered to be a Sapient, Non-Living being when targeted. Your Brawn is increased by 2, your Dexterity is increased by 1, and your Charisma is increased by 1.

Your body is adapted to hiding in shadows or darkness. You receive +3 dice on non-attack rolls related to hiding in shadows or darkness.

You are immune to damage from cold. If cold is a substantial component of other damage you would take (e.g. falling from a great distance into a vat of liquid nitrogen), that damage is reduced by 2 (in addition to Armor)

Your Injuries no longer degrade with time.

The Severity of any Injury caused by heat or fire is increased by 2.
