Vampires and Being Embraced

Post by CREdarkness on 27.09.18 16:08

This is a topic I know very little about. Iíve looked it up in the past, but I could not find enough detail. I had found a few websites that likened vampiric embrace to the turn of a vampire, by another. I canít find anything on the topic now. Does anyone know anything about it? Iíve read source material in folklore and myth, even those do not say much, if anything, about embracing. What is your information?

Dracula biting his fangs into his victims, I think, often embraced them...? Apart from that, I only know about the concept from... video games. Learn to distinguish fantasy and fiction from truth and reality. Of course, the former can be based on the latter, but often warped, twisted and distorted, so do not take it at face value for deriving its meaning directly from reality. It can be subsequently filtered through the fantasy and imagination of individuals where there happens complete reconstructions from its original source, if there ever was any, in reality... Also keep in mind that many of those roleplayers employ a lot of terminology from games into their supposedly 'vampiric' groups which might confuse people into believing it to be real unless they employ some moderate level of skepticism and only slightly educated level of perception... or any sane mind of rationality...

Well, this is not a forum for roleplay and fiction... I think you have come to the wrong place.

And this is not to put you down. You have just got to understand that we are not interested in this kind of thing.

Oh, this is getting interesting. . . Dracula you say? Do you know where to find this Dracula? Iíve read a bit about him, I didnít know he had fangs though. Most of the reading material Iíve read on Dracula mentions that he wasnít particularly a blood drinker, nor a vampire, just a very heinous tyrant. Do you have any source you can list? Iíd love to read about it. And thank you for answering. I can see where youíre coming from the internet is definitely full of nonsense and it can be difficult to distinguish.

Seems Rhea Kaye was right. Her point was proven from another thread...

Dracula is a fictional character.
Some believe in turning, via some method. Biting to turn is not it though, and ant other hypothesized method has yet to be proven or openly succeeded

I read that he was a voivode and Impaler, and there were multiple ďDraculaísĒ historically. He took over some portion of the regions he lived near/within or something like that, and it had to do with the different rule which was evading (as far as I know). His family ordered him to take aggressive measures towards some other ruler involved due to where they were going with power... and as far as I know he was not ever historically recorded to actually be a vampire. Just a tyrant who resorted to psychopathic measures, although even this is questionable because of rumored witches, posession, and the affects of severe trauma/abuse/enslavement from the time he was young. Iím guessing youíre talking about Bram Stokerís. I didnít catch that at first.

Dracula is the fictional character created by Either Bram Stoker.
Some believe the character was based in the actions of the historical figure known as Vlad the Impaler. His given name being Vlad Tapes or Vlad Dracul III, providing my memory serves accurately. He was known for imposing his political enemies as a way to strike fear in his enemies, driving out and preventing war, and earn the admiration of his people in what is now Hungary. His father was a member in a group (like a social club :p) called Ordo Dracul or Order of the Dragon.

That's the gist of what I kniw/can remember.

Others believe that Erezebet (Elizabeth) Bathory was actually the inspiration for the fictional Dracula.

Sorry for all the typos. Autocorrect sneaks in before I can catch it.

Vlad II Dracul (Dragon/Drake), Draculesti... One source referred to one of Vlad The Impalerís Ancestors as ďThe DragonĒ, and apparently ďDraculaĒ later on. I canít seem to find those articles anymore though. Around 50% of my source information has gone missing, Iím not sure if itís some portion of the web going down, or something else.. Funny though, to mention Bram Stokerís fictional Dracula, when approaching the topic of Embracing. I used to find the mention of actual vampiric embrace. Iím guessing there is no link between Aset Ka, and the original Embracing of a Vampire. I was hoping I could find something which would inform me on the matter.

The bite-to-turn method I remain heavily skeptical on. I am aware of a community of individuals who believe in vampirism being transmitted along the lines of a virus. That's the only Turning I've come across that is not directly tied into the lore, and stands on it's own basis, more or less.

I do think that it could hypothetically be possible to nudge someone toward the light-bulb switch, in a manner of speaking. Less of a direct conduit and more encouraging access to resources and knowledge, which is then the catalyst for the Awakening on the individual's own terms. The seed already there, just in need of watering. But, that does then open up the potential for falsification, lies and manipulation.
