Line 1: Line 1:
 +Native to the North, **vampires** exert significant financial and legal power across the region. They make up one of the three houses of [[countries#​Sønheim]]'​s government, and their bank accounts nearly [[http://​leifandthorn.com/​comic/​vampire-masquerade-466/​ |destroyed the economy]] until tax laws were changed to compensate for immortal compound interest.
  
 +They also do things like develop [[http://​leifandthorn.com/​comic/​vampire-masquerade-766/​|specialty unicorn breeds]] with spines and pointy tails. When you're immortal, you need a long-term project.
 +
 +Linguists and historians love the older ones...when they aren’t just making stuff up for fun, which is often.
 +
 +**Properties of vampirism:​**
 +
 +  * New vampires ("​tadpole vampires"​) can be turned at any time
 +  * It enhances your existing strength and senses (but doesn'​t create new ones; a blind human would become a blind vampire)
 +  * Some skills, like shapeshifting,​ only develop with age
 +  * There are no proven cases where a vampire was killed and then [[reincarnation|reincarnated]] as a human
 +  * There are also no vampires with [[heartswords]],​ although it's theorized that vampirism changes your soul enough to affect the look of your sword (most likely to make it more goth-y)

 +==== Lady Stanczia ==== 
 +<​html><​img src="​https://​leifandthorn.com/​wiki/​images/​cs-stanczia.png"​ alt="​Lady Stanczia"​ class="​alignleft"></​html>​
 +Appearances:​ [[http://​leifandthorn.com/​character/​lady-stanczia/​|Lady Stanczia]]
 +
 +Vampire royalty, one of the oldest in existence. Longstanding member of the House of the Moon in Sønheim. Has good taste. Got stuck in a rut about 200 years ago, then Imri cheered her up.
 +
 +Her name comes from a linguistic tradition that no longer exists, and her native language isn't spoken except by a handful of her peers. At the time, family names weren'​t standard; when they became a legal necessity, she picked Fågelson.
 +
 +  * Age (first appearance):​ almost 1000
 +  * Likes: Politics, goth decor, O positive
 +
 +==== Lord Imri ====
 +<​html><​img src="​https://​leifandthorn.com/​wiki/​images/​cs-imri.png"​ alt="​Lord Imri" class="​alignleft"></​html>​
 +Appearances:​ [[http://​leifandthorn.com/​character/​lord-imri/​|Lord Imri]]
 +
 +Stanczia’s partner. A financial analyst by training, but has big plans for writing novels in his spare time.
 +
 +Imri was [[http://​leifandthorn.com/​comic/​only-900s-kids-will-get-this-3-17/​|a 14-year-old human]] when he first met Stanczia, approximately 200 years before the comic starts. He was hired to manage her accounts in his twenties, and turned at age 32.
 +
 +He's trans, with a self-chosen name from Stanczia'​s era. At this point most people assume he's a contemporary of hers, and he lets them believe it because it's more fun that way.
 +
 +  * Age (first appearance):​ ~230
 +  * Likes: Melodramatic YA, dapper fashion, testosterone
 +
