In the 1980’s I was told that there are some like you but most prefer company. They said that Rogues tend to live longer because they are careful and discrete.
I was told many unbelievable things about some famous people that were vampires and that were made in the 1960’s, like Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. That they were killed by slayers and didn’t die of drug overdoses including, Jim Morrison’s wife. I laughed out loud even before LOL was invented. But the filled room was silent except for me. They believed Jimi Hendrix could be very dangerous because he had been in the 101st Airborne Division and had military training. But I guess not.
I was told that a famous photographer named Frank Cappa fell in love with one of your kind. She was a rogue female vampire that lived modestly but had great wealth, that she was ancient, she was of Oriental decent and he had taken intimate photos of her and she loved him too. They used to meet in South East Asia. She became very depressed when he was killed by a land mine while traveling with the French Troops in French Indochina now Vietnam. Apparently, he met her through another one of your kind that he took photos of during the Spanish Civil War.
One of the mandates of these groups were to execute anyone that was famous that became a vampire and always make it look like an accident or accidental OD or whatever. They were privately financed. No government involvement.
I was shown pictures of different suits of armor that had been used by ancient knights to fight your kind. They didn’t work. I was showed pictures of swords that killed your kind. I guess that’s how they discovered the blood of dead men worked to slow your kind down.
I was told that killing your kind had always been trial and error and that there had been many errors and many mortal men and women had been killed. I was told that a 7.62 mm bullet and a full metal jacket 5.56 mm can slow your kind down but that no matter what decapitation was fatal and always best.
I was told that there were also different types of beings like you from different continuums, but not like you, some drank blood but some didn’t need to. That the history was vague and many records had been lost or hidden by other groups that didn’t want to share info. Also, that their may have even been some kind of extra-terrestrial involvement in your condition. No one really knew or maybe they didn’t want to say. I laughed too much and didn’t take it serious.
I know that they were beginning to take better records when I left and I believe they were new weapons being designed too. I was never asked to participate in any action against your kind probably because I couldn’t take it seriously. But they were interested in me because of my date of birth day November 1st. I am still puzzled about this. I now its All Saints Day but who cares. They were also interested in the fact that I could eat those apricot seeds like M&M’s and not be affected by them.
I am telling you this because there are others that may hunt for you and kill you just because they believe what you are and don’t like your kind. Even though, I believe in your kind now I don’t feel the same animosity these groups do. So, you should be careful.
