Holden: Whoa. Did my face just change?
Buffy: Yeah. You look human now. You can do that. Go back and forth.
Holden: Oh, so I'm a vampire. [laughs] How weird is that?
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 7: Conversations With Dead People
The Vampire is able to turn a dying human into a lesser vampire, a pale shadow of a full creature of the night but useful nonetheless. They must allow the dying human to drink their blood, uninterrupted, for roughly 10 seconds, and the person will be reanimated as a shambling, unintelligent thrall.
Spend three Actions allowing a dead but not dying human to drink your own blood, and Exert your Body. If nothing interrupts this, they will be transformed into your thrall. You may have [[maximum-minions]] active at a time. The minion lasts until it is killed, has dog-level intelligence, and cannot communicate back to you.
Minions have the following stats. You have 7 times 2 points to distribute between the following:
Health levels, Movement dice, Attack dice, and alertness all of which have a maximum of 6.
Attack (difficulty 6): 6
Their attack does (successes to hit + 1) damage.
