Blood Thief Class

|This article requires cleanup or modification to improve clarity and readability.|
The blood thief class are humans able to ingest and benefit from the consumption of vampire blood. As they grow in strength, they're able to acquire the vampire powers of those on which they feed, albeit temporarily. Blood Thieves have starting stats that are higher than those of a regular human, but not quite as high as a vampire. They do, however, level just as quickly as a vampire character.
Although commonly referred to as blood 'thieves' by vampires, this is often a misnomer. Many humans of this class feed exclusively on willing vampire donors.
Becoming a Blood Thief
In order for an unclassed human to become a blood thief, the human must find an NPC blood thief. These NPCs are willing to teach non-gang members how to use vampire blood to become like them. In order to learn the secrets of the blood thief, the NPC requires your character have $10,000 on hand and that they provide the identities of at least 5 vampires.
Once you have those things, an NPC blood thief will be willing to trade their knowledge with you. Simply follow the instructions on screen.
- Blood thieves are able to steal blood from vampires in order to gain a huge boost in stats, as well as temporarily inheriting the powers of the vampire they drank from (starting duration is 1 day, and can be increased by gaining blood thief powers).
- They do not become vampires, and they are still mostly human. They will be able to walk around in the sun, and are not targets of fae.
- Levelling up will be 4 times faster than normal humans, making you level as quickly as vampires.
- This cannot be undone! Once you have drunk vampire blood, you are forever tainted. You will be unable to take any other human paths.
- Vampires will no doubt target you even more than before.
- You will be unable to use regular human skills, such as Sandman (you feel the effects of daylight, and it does make you weaker, while not harming you) or Hunter Aid (most hunters are unwilling to deal with blood thieves).
You will be able to gain powers in the same way that vampires gain powers. Just click on your PXP stat and you'll find a "Blood Thief" path powers page, with all 10 powers ready to be bought as normal. All Blood Thief powers are constant use, and cost no anima.
Blood Thief: Other Details
- Blood thieves will only be able to feed on vampires they knew before training. However they will still get identities same as normal humans.
- Vampires will be able to catch a blood thief when they are feeding, since it is just the same as attacking them.
- Blood thieves will be able to steal powers from vampires, which is what the anima they will receive will be used for, since their powers do not require any anima.
- Blood thieves can steal power with 100% success rate on those who have them listed as an Ally on the Relationships page.
- Blood thieves can fill up on blood by feeding on vampires if they are wounded, just like how vampires may do with humans.
- Every time a blood thief feeds it will change the powers to those of the last vampire they feed on.
Role Play Tips
Theses are tips that will be added here as more details come out, please keep these in mind as you role play your blood thiefs in the future.
- While they have faster regeneration times than normal humans, they aren't able to restore limbs.
- Blood thieves are designed so they shouldn't get super severe wounds
How do I gain PXP?
Blood Thieves gain PXP by feeding on vampires. They will gain 1 PXP per day after feeding, up to the usual duration totals, then they will need to feed again. For example, if I had duration 1 and 2, my duration total would be 3, so I would gain PXP for 3 days before I need to feed on another vampire.
How do I gain Anima?
Blood Thieves gain anima in the same way vampires do, by staying at max blood (near max will give some anima). Of course, blood thieves will need to either feed on vampires, or wait for a day to gain blood. They will gain 1 blood per day, the same as regular humans.
Can I still be turned?
Yes you can be turned into a vampire.
Can I be wounded? Yes, you can be wounded in the same way vampires can be wounded. You will not be able to receive critical wounds, or limb loss wounds.
What happens when I die?
At 0 blood, you will be rushed to the hospital, where you will have to recover for 1 week. Blood Thieves do not need to be critically wounded to be defeated.
