WIP Vampire Ideas for "Morvathe" by K. Bon


I've been working on this story since 2011. It's about time to, "flesh it out." What it will become is anyones guess. Here are the seeds of my work. "I now know his name is Lord Morvathe. My first uttered word, I called him “father.” He stood pale, statuesque, cloaked in fine raiment, watching me struggle to be free of the ground where he stood… I looked up into his eyes as I clawed away the last bits of my prison. I proudly pulled my naked, wraithlike body up, to stand in front of him, larvae no more. He did nothing. For a moment, our eyes locked, and without a word, he turned, dismissing me. My elder sisters quickly dragged me away, violent and confused, I screamed incoherently. I strained to look back at him in my sister’s unrelenting grip. He called me here! My unformed mind did not understand his reticence. It was here where my education began." excerpt from "Morvathe" by K Bon 2019 ______________SPOILER________________

Who is Morvathe? He is an ancient reclusive monster who, long ago, sealed himself into a mountainside fortress. He raises his "children" both topside, and underground, where only the strongest survive. Their sole purpose is to serve him and all his twisted hungers. 

"Amaranth" Feeding:  A vampire ingesting the blood of another vampire creates a bond between them to the point of being able to read each others minds when nearby.  In addition they can find each other anywhere on Earth.  When a vampire brings another across this is where the eternal bond is forged.  Also if a lower vampire feeds of a more powerful vampires blood it gives them a temporary power boost.  If two vampires were trapped somewhere together they could last for a time feeding off each other blood.  However after a period of time they would begin to lose power, and begin to go mad.  However if one was a powerful vampire such as First Generation, and another very low down on the vampire food chain then they could subsist off each other for many years.  A vampire might drink his own blood if cut off from all blood supplies.  They can last for a short period of time this way however the blood will begin to turn poisonous and they will eventually go mad.
