Q: Do they sparkle (like in Twilight)?
A: No. They do NOT sparkle like Edward or any other Twilight vampire. That's just an exaggeration. Vampires skin DOES glow, but it doesn't sparkle. Their pale skin shines brightly in the sunlight.
Q: Do they have fangs?
A: Why yes, they do. Their teeth. Not all vampires have fangs. The fangs are to help pierce through whatever it needs to get through to get their nutrients. The fangs are commonly used for biting through the skin of a mammal, and drinking out the blood. They do NOT drink through their fangs. Just like a straw, they suck out the blood.
Q: Aren't vampires dangerous to humans? Don't they kill their victums?
A: Not necessarly. The ones who were just turned usually do because they don't have any control over their feeding habits and are constantly hungry. The older vampires have more control and know when to stop drinking to not danger the human's life. Some vampires, the corrupt ones, enjoy killing their victums. These vampires are disposed of quickly, in fear of being discovered by the human's.
Q: Don't they burn in the sun and turn to ash or get set on fire?
A: They DO burn, but not as severly as turning into ash or fire. Depending upon the species, they will either burn like a normal human does *just at a faster rate* or their body will start to disintergrate. Older vampires, ones that have lived for thousands of years have a weaker defense against the sun unless they feed regularly.
