Added DiffLines:


[[folder:Vampires]]
!!Vampires

An army of bloodsucking monsters who secretly live in the underground catacombs beneath New Marais. They kidnap Cole in order to use him for a blood ritual to resurrect their deceased leader, Bloody Mary. Upon Mary's return from death, she leads her vampires on a killing spree across New Marais, preying upon its oblivious citizens while they celebrate Pyre Night.
----
* BossInMooksClothing: The Firstborn vampires are [[BatOutOfHell giant bat-like monsters]] who serve as [[MiniBoss mini-bosses]], though most of the time they won't fight Cole unless he provokes them. Also whenever an unhidden Firstborn is near a group of civilians, it will quickly bite them and [[MookMaker turn them into zombie-like vampire minions]] who will try to fistfight Cole or even bite him.
* DarkActionGirl: Harpies are female vampires who fight Cole by jumping and clinging to walls, while shooting guns at him.
* LooksLikeOrlok: The Fiends, Harpies, and Firstborns all look rather demonic and inhuman; though Mary, Cole, and any freshly-turned civilians simply look like humans with pale skin.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: These guys have most of the typical vampire traits you'd expect; they're undead demonic creatures who consume blood, convert humans into more of their kind, can turn into bats and fly; and have fatal weaknesses to crosses, stakes, fire, and sunlight. However, Cole and Zeke speculate that vampires may actually be a sub-type of [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividuals conduits]] who have blood-based abilities. However, it doesn't explain their more supernatural qualities, like their aversion to holy objects.
* TranshumanTreachery: Vampires are AlwaysChaoticEvil, and almost every person whom Mary turns into one become her {{mind control}}led {{slave|Mooks}}s with no free will of their own. Cole is able to (mostly) resist Mary's control over him, and actively fights back against her forces; however if he doesn't kill her before sunrise, he will become her slave permanently. And even then, Cole is unable to resist his [[HorrorHunger thirst for blood]], so he's forced to prey on innocent people until he can remove his curse.
* VillainTeleportation: All of the vampires (except for the infected citizens who got bitten by Firstborns) can quickly move around by changing into a shadowy flock of bats and flying/teleporting from place to place. Cole himself can fly around the city as long as his blood meter is filled up.
* ViralTransformation: Obviously, the vampires increase their numbers by turning humans into more of them. However, it seems that humans will only transform if a vampire quickly bites them or only partially drains their blood (like what Mary did to Cole, or what the Firstborns do with the civilians they attack); if a person is completely drained dry, they simply drop dead (whenever Cole or most vampires feed on people, they never turn).
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: The Firstborns have the ability to [[HumanDisguise disguise themselves as random civilians]] to blend in on the streets. Cole can detect them with his Vampire Sense and instantly kill them by staking them in the back, however any other attack will simply cause them to revert to their true forms and start fighting him.
