#27 - DOOMBLOOD - in Let's Get Groovy
Big talk for the first Monster of the Week, Doombitch.
So yeah, we have our first monster, Doomblood, a vampire. Vampires in this setting run the gamut in appearance and power, due to psychosomatic elements, curse variations, regional factors, and many other points. So feasibly, vampires that resemble Bela Lugosi's Dracula, Count Orlock, a human Count Von Count, the creatures from The Strain, Betelgeuse, Count Chocula, a traditional Blutsauger, a normal human, Alucard, and Dracula Reaper could be in the same room in this setting.
Yes, Betelgeuse isn't a vampire but he looks dead. That said, some constants include an aversion to Holiness, garlic, and staking; superspeed and strength; a craving for blood, human, animal, or artificial; and regenerative abilities.
Anyways, I'm gonna be doing 30 Days, 30 Characters, so if you want to get some of the monsters that lurk in LECTRO's and Pine Hill Creature Feature's shared America, check out my publication on every odd-numbered day of April. Even-numbered days are for characters that are tied to the 'verse's superhero side. And since the month starts on April 1st, we're starting with a monster.
I promise you, this is not a trick.
