The so-called Countess and some other entities are simply classified as VAMPIRES for their parasitic nature and ghostlike appearance. They live in a nameless world at the brink of death, leeched-out by its own lifeforms, cold, colorless, its dying sun emitting an acerb, depressing light, enhancing all contrasts. For humans, the appearance of this dimension is dreamlike, the shifting of its occupants seems beautifully vague, floating, ethereal and it's easy to confuse them with our cultural image of "angels". Irrespective of this emotions, the Vampires are unable to foster warm feelings, only cold and libidinal sexuality.

After years of training and meditation a human transdimensionaut can be taught to perceive the true visual appearance of a Vampire, which can't be photographed or filmed. The only existing records are drawings from memory (see the sketches from Viktor Augenfeld's transdimensionautical journals on the right).

Vampires are able to possess a human being from their dimension remotely and to cross over to our universe, becoming manifest in a human body in doing so. Vampires use special mudras to open a portal to other realities. The fact that they normally inhabit another dimension has led the populace to believe that Vampires are the dead, coming by demonic forces from a realm of death and sleeping in coffins. Of course, the pointed fangs are also pure myth from a long forgotten past, a metaphor for the extraction of lifeforce, executed by "kissing" the victim (if the Vampire has corporealized). In the old days the physical destriction of a Vampire was relatively easy: You had to stake him through his torso or shoot/stab him with a weapon made of silver. During the last few centuries evolution separated the Vampires' physical body from his metaphysical one, so the medieval descriptions of Succubi and Incubi are far more accurate by now.To kill a Vampire has proved to be difficult because of their strong regeneration powers and ability to fight as long as they see a chance to subdue their opponent. They are not distracted by any weapon for more than seconds. However, PANTHERION has developed a method to drive Vampires off temporarily, who seem to react "allergic" to crystalline minerals (probably because of their piezo-electric characteristics) and instantly abscond from our reality when confronted with a crystal. A possible procedure for re-humanizing Vampires by the use of a particular tattoo ink has to be further examined.

Each time a Vampire feeds on a victim in our reality the extracted energy is transfered to one of his Supremes, who regularily send their underlings on the prowl. Vampires thus represent a parasitic, colonizing and collectively acting species, moving from world to world like a virus, always in search of lifeforce. So it would be quite sure to assume that their homeworld is not their planet of origin but a colonized world with the utmost probability.

For decades the Vampires desperately tried to find a solution to prevent their worlds from dying. One of their failed experiments involved some occult groups within the Nazi SS in World War Two and their top secret "Vampirlager" ("Vampire Camps") in which the otherworldly leeches had an itch to get to the lifeforce of the moribund human guinea pigs. Another project was to abduct infants to resurrect the Vampire universe using the ultra strong children's energy, but it shipwrecked at the raveousness of the starving Vampire kidnappers who sucked the precious and tantalizing energy too rapidly, failing to give it over to the Supremes, instantly killing all children in the process (One of the children was András, son of Clara Ortrun Baroness of Schwarzenstein). A further perfidious plan conceived by the Supreme Vampire called "Countess" was to crossbreed with a human ... not out of scientific curiosity only, but to create a possible chance for her species' survival. She observes the result of this communion, Alexander Freytag, with mild interest.

The actual origin of the Vampire species is unknown. One theory implies a human ancestry: A very long time ago the Vampires have been humans who succeeded in leaving their physical bodies and exploring other dimensions and alternate realities, consuming a great amount of lifeforce in doing so. This additionally needed energy was forcefully extracted from other lifeforms (animals, enemies etc.).


Due to the nature of their pocket universe netting, which essentially is a vital part of our universe's fabric from the very beginning, these abominable counterdimensional entities are able to unfold everywhere and nowhere; because they live outside the boundaries of dualism, they are basically one being, appearing in countless shapes and forms. Of course, they would have long rendered all that exists in spacetime sense- and consciousnessless, if there wasn't a great obstacle for The Great Old Ones: They need to be called, invoked... which means that anyone who is insane enough to wish for a certainly lethal or at least devastating interaction with them has to learn a certain guttural language, consisting of aeons-old sound patterns, gestures and meditation techniques, supported by meticulously arranged, mixed and then ingested or inhaled chemical substances.

Whoever is able to survive the preparations will open a kind of rift in the membrane of our universe and witness the intrusion of The Great Old Ones or, truth be told, of one particular fraction of The Great Old One, matching the respective ritual. There is no known invocation for THE Great Old One – and hopefully there will never be. So you can call any facet of the entity but you'll never get to invite the whole Great Old One.

As aforementioned, The Space Between The Stars and The Great Old One exists since the beginning of our current spacetime cycle. For this reason, all beings in our consensus reality universe share subbiological, subquantum characteristics with The Great Old One: They can interbreed. Which means that, for example, a human female can be impregnated by an emanation of The Great Old One. The offspring of such abhorrent intercourse will be more than "alien" for human eyes and mind, though; not to mention the sexual act itself which has nothing to do with anything we usually perceive as sex or even as biological. We chose one particularly explicit literary depiction to illustrate the spawn of transdimensional fornication with the Great Old One's pocket universe projections. It's from "The Dunwich Horror", written in 1928 by H.P. Lovecraft:

"The thing that lay half-bent on its side in a foetid pool of greenish-yellow ichor and tarry stickiness was almost nine feet tall, and the dog had torn off all the clothing and some of the skin (...) It would be trite and not wholly accurate to say that no human pen could describe it, but one may properly say that it could not be vividly visualised by anyone whose ideas of aspect and contour are too closely bound up with the common life-forms of this planet and of the three known dimensions. It was partly human, beyond a doubt, with very manlike hands and head, and the goatish, chinless face had the stamp of the Whateleys upon it. But the torso and lower parts of the body were teratologically fabulous, so that only generous clothing could ever have enabled it to walk on earth unchallenged or uneradicated. Above the waist it was semi-anthropomorphic; though its chest (...) had the leathery, reticulated hide of a crocodile or alligator. The back was piebald with yellow and black, and dimly suggested the squamous covering of certain snakes. Below the waist, though, it was the worst; for here all human resemblance left off and sheer phantasy began. The skin was thickly covered with coarse black fur, and from the abdomen a score of long greenish-grey tentacles with red sucking mouths protruded limply. Their arrangement was odd, and seemed to follow the symmetries of some cosmic geometry unknown to earth or the solar system. On each of the hips, deep set in a kind of pinkish, ciliated orbit, was what seemed to be a rudimentary eye; whilst in lieu of a tail there depended a kind of trunk or feeler with purple annular markings, and with many evidences of being an undeveloped mouth or throat. The limbs, save for their black fur, roughly resembled the hind legs of prehistoric earth's giant saurians, and terminated in ridgy-veined pads that were neither hooves nor claws. When the thing breathed, its tail and tentacles rhythmically changed colour, as if from circulatory cause normal to the non-human side of its ancestry. In the tentacles it was observable as a deepening of the greenish tinge, whilst in the tail it was manifest as a yellowish appearance which alternated with a sickly greyish-white in the spaces between the purple rings. Of genuine blood there was none; only the foetid greenish-yellow ichor which trickled along the painted floor beyond the radius of the stickiness, and left a curious discolouration behind it."
