    Default Index of Vampiric Variants

    I'm trying to compile a list of different varieties of vampires/vampiric monsters. The list includes variant Vampires, creatures with vampiric traits, anything with "Vampire" in the name, and a small number of conditions inflicted by Vampires. Pathfinder and 3rd Party are a-okay.

    Here are the ones I've got so far and the book they're from as well as a brief description.


    WotC

    Blood Fiend - Fiend Folio: Demon strain of vampirism.
    Blood Ghoul - Ghostwalk: Creature who has gained enhanced strength by ingesting a Vampire's blood. The Vampire in question is granted control of any Blood Ghouls they create. Very similar to the Ghouls from White Wolf's World of Darkness setting.
    Blood Mummy (Hijarjany) - Dangerous Denizens: The Monsters of Tellene: Mummy who feeds on blood to maintain the appearance they had when alive.
    Demon Vampire - Web Article: A glabrezu with the standard vampire template.
    Drider Vampire - City of the Spider Queen: A drow that got cursed by Lolth, and then got cursed again, and now they have too many legs and drink blood.
    Fire Vampire - D20 Call of Cthulhu Core Rulebook: Diminutive aberration that is made of fire and feeds on the "essence" of living creatures. Not associated with more traditional Vampires.

    Psychic Vampire - Libris Mortis: Vampire that drains Wis instead of Con.
    Savage Vampire - Dragon #348: More brutish variety of Vampire, not to be confused with Libris Mortis' Savage Vampire.
    Savage Vampire - Libris Mortis: Vampire that has increased Str and two claw attacks, but no Dominate ability.
    Shadow Sun Ninja - Tome of Battle: Initiator class with a capstone ability that can turn the player into a unique variety of Vampire that is not harmed by the sun.
    Shadow Vampire - Dragon #348: Vampire with a variety of shadow themed abilities.
    Sharjan - Dangerous Denizens: The Monsters of Tellene: Pseudo Vampire that that is created in a ritual that involves drinking Vampire blood or by being drained by a another Sharjan. Has fewer powers than true Vampire as well as fewer weaknesses. Not Undead.
    Star Vampire - D20 Call of Cthulhu Core Rulebook: Naturally invisible aberration that feeds on blood. Not associated with more traditional Vampires.
    Swarmform Vampire - Libris Mortis: Vampire that can transform into a swarm of rats or bats, instead of the standard, vampiric alternate forms.
    Terror Vampire - Dragon #348: Vampire that feeds on fear as well as blood, and has abilities that reflect this.
