Anything that needs to take "energy" from another living creature in order to thrive can be a vampire.

Can be a vampire? From my own view, a vampire is just that -- something that needs to take energy from another thing in order to sustain itself.

I actually have some theories regarding vampirism, but that's not for here. But, yes, I would say that a dragon could very well be an energy vampire, especially considering that "normal humans" can have that problem. I would liken it to any other, natural problem that you, being in a human body, can face.

Of course, I could be wrong again on this point >:}

Well, luckily this only flaired up recently, on the bus of all places, and it hasn't been as severe since. Just the normal "be slightly more/less talkative/aggressive/intellectual" type things. It just kinda jolted me when it happened.

I was more or less asking that on a more 'kin side of things. Like a dragon-vampire otherkin. I guess since you would need to thrive off another creature it would be that. Was just pondering was all.

Anything could happen, but my guess is that it would be rare. I get the impression that a lot of dragons have a bit of elemental somewhere in their makeup. Which means they should have no trouble using elemental energy.

Even I can get vampy on occasion if the ambient energies are low. I'm extremely tuned to the seasons and the weather, so dull, cold, overcast days leave me feeling a bit lethargic. I know how to fix that now, but I didn't used to. These days if I snuggle up to someone, it's sometimes a subconscious attempt to dump extra energy on them instead of take it away.

I mirror what Motley said. I attribute vampirism to a deficiency in energy and see most otherkins with a seeming surplus of energy. Of course, this is simply by human standards -- perhaps as a dragon, the energy is lower than normal. In that case, a vampiric dragon, who fed off of other dragons due to its own deficiency, doesn't seem very far-fetched. I just think the condition would change upon moving to a human body.

Kind of works how you said that, since I know for a fact that I really was down in terms of energy during those times. Was actually just after I accepted my past-life and dragon self.

(Haha... whoops. =p Yea, I've been waiting a long time for that site to open up the little game they have going now.)

Re: Fuzzy mental boarders
On various otherkin communities i have come across multiple vamp/[insert otherkin here] mixes.
A few have been vamps/dragons so it happens.

Though not all dragons have an elemental thing going on. I think it's a misconception based on how many dragons have been said to emit different sorts of breath weapons.

That and the various types of dragons associated with elements and colors from the D&D world.

Re: Fuzzy mental boarders
I have a good friend who's a psi vampire as well as a dragon. His condition isn't much different from the other vampires I know. Being dragon-kin doesn't change his inability to maintain his energy levels. That and he's quite adept at using/manipulating energy of any kind regardless of his kin-ness. XD

I've met a good mix of vampire/other kin type but I'd say the percentages change depending on what forum or area you're speaking of. One forum is nearly all human vampires while vampire/anything is pretty rare in another forum. *shrugs* However I will say that this might be due to varying acceptance of these things in each place as well. The more skepticism that exists in an area, the less members will openly admit to identifying as that type.

Possibly. Having more than one person in one's head gives one the unique ability to view one's self from a sort-of outside perspective, so it seems logical to me.
