  • King/Queen of Vampires
  • Vampire Lordship
  • Lord/Lady of Vampires
  • Master/Mistress of Vampires


The user either is or can transform into a Vampire Lord, the most powerful form of vampire. Unlike lesser vampires, the vampire lord possesses inherent skill in dark magic and may command legions of undead minions/vampires.

Also, vampire lords are known to have a certain resistance to sunlight for prolonged periods of time and have the fewest weaknesses; on top of that, even if they die, they are powerful enough to be reborn after a specific time period has past. This is because of a supernatural tether binding them to the physical plane as long as its not separated in certain possible ways. Furthermore, depending on the user, they may have a demonic nature, thus granting them access to the most unholy of powers.





  • Still posses all of the natural vampire weaknesses but to a lesser degree.
  • Supernatural Hunter are match against even the strongest of vampires.
  • Though the user can walk in daylight, they need to wear heavy clothing, as the sunlight hinders their regenerative ability.
  • May be vulnerable to those with Werebeast Lord Physiology assuming Vampires and Were's are natural enemies.
