Depending on what the non-human takes, the victim may be mildly inconvenienced, sincerely injured or even killed. Some may be able to make a complete recovery, others will be [[ScarsAreForever scarred or crippled for life]], and some unlucky souls will end up an EmptyShell, KilledOffForReal, or even DeaderThanDead. Needless to say, this makes [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire being nice]] pretty [[SlidingScaleOfVampireFriendliness difficult.]]
