* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Vampires can feed off human blood only, and they also have to kill on a regular basis (how frequent they must kill isnít mentioned, but considering what Ethan says about vampires needing to keep a low profile, one assumes that it must not be enough to attract attention). According to Ethan, during the feeding a certain kind of mental bond as well between the vampire and the victim, thatís why feeding off animal blood or blood bags is impossible. Sunlight burns and kills them, they donít age, and if they cut their hair it grows back to how long it was over the course of a few nights.

* KissOfTheVampire: When Kerry asks Ethan about vampire feeding habits, he tells her that being bitten by one is actually quite enjoyable for both parties, and that mixing it with sex is beyond pleasurable. There are exceptions, since, according to Ethan, some vampires get off on their victimís pain and [[VampireBitesSuck therefore willingly choose to make their bite painful]].

* WeakenedByTheLight: Sunlight kills vampires in an extremely painful manner, and it is ''not'' instantaneous. This kind of death is so excruciating that [[spoiler: when Ethan thinks heís about to die that way, he asks Kerry to shoot him before he starts frying.]]
