** Which may add a layer of understanding as to why, if Jonathan hasn't killed anybody, [[spoiler:she chooses to let their mother go]], but still tries to fight him to the death; not just rage over having been murdered in the first place, but perhaps as a form of SuicideByCop. Jonathan, after all, has proven resistant, past that first overwhelming urge to feed that resulted in [[spoiler: Mary's]] death. [[spoiler: Mary]] isn't made of the same stuff, and recognizes that she won't be able to control herself the way Jonathan can.

\n* None of Reid's coworkers ever seem to comment on his looks, despite the fact that he looks like a walking corpse. Then you realize that dr. Reid works the night shift. When they see him, they just assume he's tired from working all night.

* Within the game, it is possible to [[spoiler: turn three different characters into vampires by choice within the story, via specific in-game options; Geoffrey McMullum, Aloysius Dawson, and Edgar Swansea, but these have variable costs to your XP. Jonathan notes himself that there is no guarantee that the transformation will work, but perhaps it has something to do with the general health of the body. McMullum is still in the prime of his life and has just drunken the blood of King Arthur (himself a vampire), so even though Reid has just fought him, is still young and healthy and perhaps even more physically able to endure the transformation, hence why turning him only costs 1000 XP. Dawson costs 2000 XP, as he is literally dying, but this is due to old age, and he has physically and mentally prepared himself for the change. Swansea costs 3000 XP, but has been beaten severely, and is suffering various internal injuries, which will soon kill him by the time you find him]].



* West End has a sizeable population of Ekons (and two Skals ''right behind'' Jonathan's house). Jonathan's mother Emelynn has a tendency to wander off alone due to her schizophrenia. It doesn't take much to realize that she is in constant mortal danger with how much of an easy picking she is.

** As a matter of fact, if you kill Avery the butler unless you kill her yourself first there will be no one to watch out for Emelynn and she will wander off and get turned into a Skal.


* It's show that is also possible by accident by just biting them as seen with [[spoiler:Mary Reid]] without having to exchange any blood. Its inevitable that you gonna have to chomp on a few enemies to regenerate health and gain experience points - specially when playing as an FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire, since this is the ''only'' you can level up. Let's hope that Jonathan makes sure any of his victims stay dead and don't rise as vampires...

The influence of the Red Queen has made them into monsters with a HorrorHunger far stronger than Jonathan's own. Regular Ekons and Skals may be good or evil but the ones created by the Disaster are AlwaysChaoticEvil.]]

* Jonathan doesn't seem afflicted by the Blood of Hate, despite regularly [[spoiler:feeding on Skals]]. Then again, he was sired by [[spoiler:Myrddin himself, a vampire so powerful and ancient his species is unknown]], which likely makes him immune to the effects of the Blood of Hate. That probably also explains why, even as a newly-born vampire, he's able to take apart much, much older and seemingly more powerful and experienced vampires. This would also explain why Johnathan [[spoiler:turning Sean into an Ekon could cure him of the Blood of Hate, since he's just one step removed from Myrddin himself now]].

* Sean Hampton [[spoiler: going crazy and murdering everyone in his district seems out of character given other Skals' behavior who aren't psychopaths. Then you realize he's infected with the blood of hate.]] This also explains why [[spoiler:turning him into an Ekon will cure him; feeding him Johnathan's blood exposes him to the same immunity to the Blood of Hate that Johnathan seems to have]].
* Lord Redgrave only banishes you from the Ascalon Club when you defy him despite Elizabeth's claim he will try to kill you. Later, when you return to the club for William Marshal's blood, he folds like a cheap suit no matter how hostile you are. Then you note he sends Ekon assassins after you, who try to kill you. [[spoiler: This is because Lord Redgrave is of a lesser lineage and you've already killed his chief enforcer. Redgrave is a DirtyCoward!]]

* Lady Elizabeth has no desire to change her daughter Charlotte [[spoiler: because she's infected with the Blood of Hate and would create another monster. Ironically, now that she knows Reid, she could probably have him turn her. We also discover that the change is very often lethal.]]

* Is Jonathan now infected with [[spoiler: the Blood of Hate]] if he drank from any of the infected Skals, [[spoiler: Hariett Jones]], or [[spoiler: Dorothy Fletcher?]]
** Might fall under HeadScratchers since that would make sense. But he never showed any signs of it and didn't [[spoiler: take the antidote]] until the end of the game. Which is especially weird, given his confrontation with [[spoiler: Doris, who was a nascent disaster in her own right.]] But even ignoring everything before the last boss fight, if [[spoiler: the antidote just makes you asymptomatic, he would likely still be infected after confronting Harriet and especially the Red Queen.]]
