Doll– A Human who has been consuming a Vampyre’s blood for a long period of time. If the Vampyre is experienced, long term of in taking blood will result in the human craving that specific Vampyres blood. As time passes the craving will go down. However, the human will begin to lose their appetite for food. They will become slightly stronger than the average human. Their strength will increase, they will become smarter, keen to details and their bodies will simply begin to slow down the aging process due to the continued use of consuming Vampyre blood. When a ‘Doll’ is established, the human and Vampyre becomes emotional open to one another. They can sense each other’s presence and talk to each other from miles and miles away. The Vampyre can control the human easily. Make them do whatever they want.
