The vampires in my novel are not that different from the vampires in pop culture. They’re pale, have visible fangs, don’t age, cannot appear in the mirror, can only drink blood and will burn under the sunlight. However, religious symbols don’t work on them, so does garlic and salt. They have superhuman strength, and during full moon, they can even float.
For centuries, they’re not able to procreate, until the creation of Jean-Philippe d’Auvrecher. Since then, it’s believed that the vampires who were made from 1770’s until now can procreate due to human evolution. Their offspring will only age until the parents’ human age. Say the parents (or one of them) turned into a vampire at 35 years old, then their children will grow until 35 years old and then stop aging forever. Unfortunately for Jean-Philippe, his own children cannot procreate. Therefore, he keeps fathering many children to help him build his wealth, which includes Erebus University.
In this university for supernatural and magical beings, vampires are part of the nocturnal students alongside ghouls, incubi, succubi, and some of the shapeshifters. They learn how to be part of human society and how to appear as humanely possible in addition to earning their degree.
