Humans have four types of blood A, AB, B, and O. they can either be positive or negative. “Was not until 1901, when the Austrian Karl Landsteiner discovered human blood groups, that blood transfusions became safer.”(Science of Vampires) The differences in human blood “are due to the presence or absence of certain protein molecules called antigens and antibodies.” (Notes) Vampires are monsters that are known for suck out our blood to live. In society we as humans defend want is living and what death is. Vampires do not fit on this line that we have set. Some questions that I will be answering, how as humans we are like vampires? How Cleopatra a normal human by our standard can try and suck the life out of Hans? How Cleopatra is like are modern vampires? What is the different between modern vampires and classical vampires?
First I should tell you what Vampire means and how I defined it. “a preternatural being, commonly believed to be a reanimated corpse, that is said to suck the blood of sleeping persons at night.” (dictionary.com) There are two types of vampire one is the old classic vampire and two is the newer modern vampire. Now the defects between the two is that a classic vampire “are repelled by garlic, sunlight, hawthorn plants, wolfbane, wooden stakes, silver, crucifixes, holy water, and sleep in a coffin during the day.” (www.shelfari.com) When I thing of the classic vampire the first that comes in mine is Dracula. The film Count Dracula came out the same time the film Freak did 1931 but the book was written in 1897 by Bram Stoker. The modern vampire “fly without transforming, don't sleep whatsoever, are not repelled by any of the classic repellents (except show their true colours when seen in the sunlight), can become vegetarians if they put their mind to it and fight like animal people with incredible speed and superhuman strength.” (www.shelfari.com) Also the more of the modern vampires fall in love with human were the classic on do not even think about having a thing with a human. Now the one modern vampire people know of is Edward Cullen from book and now movie twilight written in 2005 by Stephenie Meyer. Now vampire like Edward is what I am cumbering to Cleopatra.
History of vampires:
In “Slayers & Their Vampires” it talks about how the original classic vampire was based and killed off of Christianity. For example holy water can kill Count Dracula (which is water blessed by a priest.) in the book it also talk about how in the 1930 vampires like Count Dracula, many were there to represent the great dispassion and how the people felt like there live was being sucked out of them. Every decade the vampire has changed. “The idea of drinking blood to be immortal is not a foreign one to the human mind. Indians, Greeks and Christians have all had a part in this conception. Drinking the blood of another is sometimes understood as obtaining the "life-blood" of someone else for yourself. Therefore, the idea of the vampire stems from...
