Soulless husks of their former selves, vrykir feed on the souls of others to sustain their own longevity, usually by sucking the blood of their victims. However, more powerful vrykir have less primal means of achieving such a task, often absorbing their victim's blood using their blood force. Their deadening sense to pain allows them to take extensive abuse before being put down. They're cold, often calculating beings who strive for the preservation of their existence, even if it comes at the cost of others. There are three main categories of vrykir: fledgling, blooded, and lord. Fledglings are vrykir who just recently turned and have not yet learned how to hone their new abilities. When they themselves turn another soul or drain it dry, they obtain the status blooded. Blooded are the most common class, making up nearly 90% of all vrykir. Lords, on the other hand, are the clan leaders, usually the most well-versed and powerful vrykir. The two subtypes of vrykir are drakonian and malefic. Drakonian vrykir are vrykir who were turned under Drakyula's directive or by himself personally. Often these vrykir became lords or praetorians vrykir assigned to Drakyula's personal guard. Malefic vrykir was a term attributed to those who didn't serve under Drakyula or ally with him, seeing them as rouge enemies of his court. A vrykir can be distinguished amongst a crowd upon close inspection of their eyes. Due to their lack of a soul, their eyes turn silver in color but turn red with blood when harnessing their blood force. Their skin if often more pale with their most obvious feature more pale with their most obvious feature being the two protruding fangs from their upper row of teeth, used to pierce the flesh of their victims and drain their life force dry.
