Intent:
 
The intent and thus focus of this submissions is to further flesh out the approved Sanguinius Vampirika species (in which the submission mentioned the Lesser Sanguinius Vampirika subspecies). This as mentioned is thus intended to provide more story and detailed information for those that decide to either create a Lesser Vampirika or have their characters embrace the change and be turned by a Sanguinius Vampirika. 
 
It is also intended to further show that while a Lesser Vampirika is strong in its own right, it is still much weaker than a Sanguinius Vampirika, and that the further down one goes from the original sire, the weaker the Lesser Vampirika becomes. Eventually, an individual will be so far removed from the original Sanguinius Vampirika Sire that the effects of becoming a Lesser Vampirika are more detrimental than positive.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Name: Lesser Sanguinius Vampirika
 
Designation: Sentient
 
Homeworld:
  • Varies - Due in part to any being potentially capable of becoming a Lesser Vampirika, their homeworld will vary depending on the individual that has been turned. 
 
Language:
  • Varies based on initial species
 
Average Lifespan:
  • Maximum Lifespan: Roughly 3,500 Standard Years
 
Estimated Population:
  • Scattered
 
Description:
 
Those that have become a Lesser Sanguinius Vampirika show no real outward differences compared to other memebrs of their species at least when it comes to those that are Human or of a Near-Human species. It has been noted that some alien species that have become a Lesser Vampirika have noticeably changed features, specifically those with fur have seen it turn from its previous shade and coloration to a more white, grayed or faded color. 
 
Likewise, some Saurian species have been noted as having their scales change, either fading from their previously vibrant color or becoming completely white. Any additional changes or otherwise differences in appearances are purely from a case by case situation, as no two Lesser Vampirika are known to be the same (unless we're talking about identical individuals being turned).

Distinctions:
 
  • The species is most known for its overgrown teeth, specifically the canines and the lateral incisors. In some individuals and bloodlines, this also affects the canines and lateral incisors of the lower jaw. 
 
  • During times of great emotional duress or stress, it has been noted that the upper canines of an individual appear to elongate beyond their usual size; with the lower canines also elongated in certain individuals. This time of emotional duress or stress also results in an individual's eyes appearing to glow a vibrant blue or a bright yellow. 
 
  • Unlike most mammalian species, the Sanguinius Vampirika is a cold-blooded species. However unlike many saurian species, this does not appear to affect their capabilities in terms of activity. Furthermore some members or gatherings of the species often gravitate towards colder worlds (such as Hoth) as a means of defense due in part to the reputation of their species. 
 
  • While their progenitor species, the Energy Vampires, possessed retractable claws; this adaptation has seemingly been lost to the Sanguinius Vampirika. Likewise the Energy Vampire's ability to turn those that it fed upon into zombies is also a capability no longer possessed by this species. 
 
Races:
  • N/a
 
Strengths:
 
  • Members of this species have been noted as having developed Heightened Senses (often manifesting in increased depth perception, a heightened sense of smell and hearing, as well as a natural night vision). However they are not nearly as sharply developed as the Sanguinius Vampirika. 
 
  • Regardless of an individual's physical build, all members of the species have enhanced physical capabilities. These present themselves as enhanced physical strength, speed, agility and reflexes; as well as increased endurance and durability. 
 
  • While the species is still susceptible to physical damage, their bodies are capable of healing themselves due to the species natural accelerated healing. This can often be seen in minor scrapes and burns healing almost instantly (with other more serious wounds taking far less time than it would for other species to heal from similar injuries). This accelerated healing can be further enhanced through the consumption of blood, often tripling the speed of healing. 
 
  • A minor strength of the species is one that aids others in a way. If an individual is gravely injured or otherwise willingly agrees, a member of the Sanguinius Vampirika may offer their blood to the second party. While a Lesser Sanguinius Vampirika can also impart this gift upon others, it causes that individual to become a weaker form of Lesser Vampirika, this due in part to the further one goes from the original sire, the weaker one becomes. Subsequent Lesser Vampirikas are much weaker than their forebears and often only benefit from the longevity of the species while lacking the heightened senses and have a weaker form of the natural healing. 
 
Weaknesses:
 
  • All members of the species appear to suffer from an acute and aggressive form of Photo-Sensitivity, specifically an allergy to the ultraviolet radiation given off by many stars. This allergy results in the individual's skin starting to burn and blister, with more severe burns developing the longer they remain in the source of the ultraviolet radiation. Likewise this photo-sensitivity also affects the individual's eyes, with it being noted that even looking at indirect sunlight causes a strain upon the eye (with the potential of blindness developing from prolonged exposure). They do not however (as seen in many popular Holovids) suddenly burst into flames upon exposure. It should be noted that while minor burns, such as those from brief contact with ultraviolet radiation can be healed; if an individual of the species suffers from prolonged exposure, their healing capability is in essence negated, requiring immediate medical attention as the alternative is death. 
 
  • While biologically immortal, individuals of the species can pass due to sustained damaged, fatal wounds, or dismemberment. Unlike the Gen'Dai, the species is unable to sustain heavy damage and put themselves together or live through the loss of vital organs. 
 
  • Some bloodlines of the species have over time developed a silver allergy. While most 'silver allergies' are usual a nickel allergy as a result of the silver plated nickel jewelry; those bloodlines that do suffer from this allergy reported similar effects as the species shared photo-sensitivity. Upon coming in contact with silver, their skin burns and blisters, with prolonged exposure resulting in more dire and grievous injury. These injuries are not easily healed through their healing capability and require medical attention in order to recover. Prolonged exposure of silver from these wounds will ultimately result in silver poisoning which subsequently will lead to the individuals death. 
 
  • The species subsists on a primarily hemovoric diet, requiring that they consume blood at least once per week. Though this requirement can be overcome, the longer an individual goes without feeding the more likely they will succumb to what is colloquially known as 'hunger madness'. This 'madness' often results in the individual tearing through any populated location, slaughtering and feeding regardless of the species (even turning on their own kind). If an individual gets to this point it becomes a matter of principle that others (usual members of its own coven or bloodline) put the individual down. 
 
  • Mental maladies are often seen developing in older more "ancient" members of the species. Those who do not undergo a routine hibernation period to rest and restore themselves, are often at a higher rate for developing mental health issues (such as alzheimer's and dementia). 
 
  • The creation of a Lesser Sanguinius Vampirika is recorded above, usually involving an individual consuming the blood of a Sanguinius Vampirika. However, while they are capable of passing on this gift, it is also a lottery as to whom survives the gifting. This is due in part to only 10% of the galactic population being capable of surviving, rather than their own body rejecting the consumed blood and destroying itself from the inside out. 

 

  • While they are naturally resistant to a number of toxins and poisons, they are not immune to them all. For instance, if exposed, through either ingestion or introduction through an open wound, to Nightshade (which is highly toxic to the Sanguinius Vampirika) could mean instant death to a lesser member of the species. 
 
  • An oddity of the species is how Spice (no matter the variant) affects their biological capabilities. Much like how Deathsticks were used by Cade Skywalker to suppress his visions of his ancestor Luke Skywalker; Spice in all its variants appears to adversely affect individuals of the species. While accidental contact with Spice suppresses the healing abilities of a member of the species for a few hours, continued ingestion (forced or otherwise) will eventually completely shut off the healing capabilities of an individual until the spice is flushed from their system. 
 
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
..:: Cultural Information ::..
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Diet:
  • Hemovoric
    • ​While capable of consuming prepared foods (and actually often enjoying the cuisine of various species around the galaxy); they receive no nutritional or sustenance from these foods, requiring to consume blood at least once a week. 
 
Communication:
  • Speech
  • Writing
 
Technology level:
  • Galactic Standard
    • ​Hyperdrive Capable
 
Religion/Beliefs:
  • While the species itself has no standing religion that they themselves developed; individuals or covens of the species often worship already established religions. Even fewer establish any new beliefs, with others worshiping more abstract beliefs, or those that match their spiritual inclinations. Depending on the Sanguinius Vampirika, it is not unusual for the Lesser Vampirika to be tricked into or otherwise begin worshiping their Sire as a 'Dark God' or form a Cult or Coven around said individual. 
 
General behavior:
  • Behavior often differs between individuals and from bloodline to bloodline. While some are more focused on family life, others may be more focused on gathering personal wealth or notoriety. Just as the general behavior of various species can differ greatly between individuals and families, so to does this appear to be the case with members of the Lesser Sanguinius Vampirika. The major shared behavior of the species however is due in part to its photo-sensitivity, resulting in the majority of the species being nocturnal (though not out of an evolutionary adaptation so much as defensive measure). Additional this has also caused many to flee to the void of space, with entire covens and extended bloodlines surviving on large colony vessels, only stopping at worlds to resupply as needed. 
 
Sires: 
  • While Sanguinius Vampirika often come together in Covens or based on their various affiliations and bloodlines, an odd occurrence has been noted among the Lesser Vampirika. Individuals of the Lesser Vampirika species will often stay at their Sire's side (out of loyalty, fear, love, or some other driving force it is unknown). While some do stray away or otherwise choose to move on to their own means and goals, those that do stay are likely doing so for training and to better understand the changes to their bodies and physiology. 

 

Reproduction: 
  • While Reproduction is viable between Lesser Sanguinius Vampirika (depending on their exact genetic makeup and the viability between the individuals and their respected original species), it will not begat a Sanguinius Vampirika or a stronger form of Lesser Vampirika. Often the children born this way are of a weaker Lesser Vampirika than their parents, though only slightly more powerful than those Lesser Vampirika Individuals that were turned by another Lesser Vampirika. 
 
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
..:: Historical Information ::..
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Its unknown when the first Lesser Sanguinius Vampirika was created, though it is likely that it didn't happen by any design or actual attempt, rather it is likely that it happened purely by accident. Thus the history of the Lesser Sanguinius Vampirika is tied directly with the Sanguinius Vampirika themselves. While the Pureblooded bloodlines often treated the Lesser Vampirika as just that, or to serve as thralls and slaves, this was not what happened in a great many of the other bloodlines where the Lesser Vampirika were treated just as equally as any other member. 
 
Their history is difficult to understand, as due to their own inherited values, they often didnt deviate from others of their kind. Thus there is a patchwork of stories and tales of various smaller communities of Lesser Vampirika that came together, with some even having flocked to the Akeldama Slave Empire, or other great covens founded by the Sanguinius Vampirika species. 
 
Due to the variety of Lesser Vampirika, it is difficult to give a completed historical information and detailed analysis of their kind. This is primarily due to the simple fact that many of the Lesser Vampirika resembled in someway the Sanguinius Vampirika, and often stayed at their side or otherwise kept themselves hidden. They are known to have served in the various hidden wars, with some groups of Lesser Vampirika joining those bloodlines on one side or the other. 
 
While the Sanguinius Vampirika itself is a scattered species and often considered rare, they are common in comparison to the Lesser Vampirika. This is partially due to the simple fact that the Lesser Vampirika are weaker, coupled with the events of the Gulag Plague and the Netherworld event; much of their numbers have been forcibly dwindled, effectively causing them to be an endangered species.

Just a few things I'd like to clarify/need rectified!

 

 

 

Language: High Galactic Galactic Basic Standard Huttese

 

 First, could this not vary entirely on what the person knew prior, or do they suddenly get an understanding of these languages once turned? I noticed you mentioned the homeworld may vary, but not the languages, so I would need some clarification here.

 

 

 

If consumed, the individual has the potential of becoming a Lesser Sanguinius Vampirika, though as they are a sub-species, they deserve their own recorded codex entry.

 

Perhaps leftover from the original submission?
