Name: Vampire.

A vampire is a corpse that is not really dead although it retains more its human qualities than a lich or a zombie would. It arises at night to drink the blood of the living to replenish itself. The word itself originated as the Slavic word obyri or obiri, which evolved into the Bulgarian vampire. Another word for vampire, nosferatu, comes from the Greek nosophoros, plague-carrier.

Vampires do not always fear light. They can stand sunlight for a short period of time, have pale skin, and grow fangs. Doctors believe there may be a medical explanation for the proliferation of vampire stories in Eastern Europe. Porphyria (also known as phorphyic hemophelia), a hereditary blood disease, was once widespread among the aristocracy. Patients were sensitive to light, developed brownish teeth, and had skin lesions. They were often told to drink blood from other people to replenish their own.

Rabies also causes vampire-like symptoms, insomnia, delirium, and strange behavior. A rabies epidemic occurred in Transylvania around the time of Dracula, the world's most notorious vampire.

In romanian, they are called, Vampir. During the proccess of becoming a vampire, the people the vampire was closest to in life will get horrible nightmare's of the creature's return.
