Blood holds a special significance to vampires: other creatures need it to live and a vampire's unlife is entirely dependant on its ability to take blood from others. Some vampires use blood to fuel other ambitions, chiefly necromancy, though other creatures can use the blood necromancy of vampires, provided they can somehow learn the secrets from a vampire. The simplest of such creatures to create is a bloodborn: a creature with all of a vampire's thirst for blood but none of its elegance, entirely loyal to the vampire that created it. A bloodborn lacks fangs, but it still thirsts for blood, so most bloodborn carry bladed weapons, eagerly lapping at the vital fluid of their victims in combat.

Undead Nature. A bloodborn doesn't require air.
