According to legends, the Gypsy people found in the Carpathian Mountains had many tales of vampires, or the Strigoii Vii. Reportedly, they lived peacefully for years with the knowledge of the vampire. The Strigoii Vii chose only one to feed on for life-a mate of sorts. I grabbed bits of the lore from several different documents and books to develop my own relationship between vampires and the gypsy people of Romania.
Incorporating these facts, folktales and legends was the hardest part of world building for Piper's Fury, but I'm happy with the results. And, I like the idea of a vampire feeding because he or she wants to, not because they have to, although Slade needs blood on occasion. That's the fun of creating your own world, anything is possible!
