Sucks people's blood not out of absolute necessity, but is actually just a really picky eater. This pickiness extends to the Vampire's social circles. Recently overheard: "Why does this zombie keep texting me to hang out? It's like, dude, just cause we're both undead doesn't mean we're besties. All you do is whine about politics."
NPC, Vampires appear in the Park, Downtown, and Uptown and generally spawn in cabins at the Park or Houses and Mansions at Uptown, one also appears in a cage at the Zoo.
Walking past a Vampire will use Bite to drain their victims' blood including the player. Unlike the Thief, the Vampire doesn't become Hostile and doesn't run away and they will continue to walk off after draining some blood from their victim, however followers witnessing you being bitten will become hostile towards the vampire and will attack them in retaliation, turning the Vampire Hostile towards you. Vampires do not use Bite to drain from Robots or characters with the Electronictrait since they lack blood.
How to fight: Against single enemies, open with Bite if you are not at full health. However, if you have to fight a group or know more enemies will appear, focus on melee combat using your strength and speed.
How to finish a mission: The Vampire works well as a stealthy character. You need to attack from behind to use Bite. You can also invade hideouts rather casually as Camera Shy allows you to traverse hideouts without worrying about Security Cameras. You can also use this to your advantage to sneak up on Goons and other guards within the hideout.
Out of combat, Bite allows Vampires to recover health much more reliably than most other classes, which means that you can take a lot more risks with it. During combat, however, it is very difficult to get behind an opponent, and since you don't have access to most ordinary forms of healing items, you probably won't be recovering much health mid-combat. Try to avoid drawn-out fights.
Bite is considered an assault, so Cops, as well as anyone allied with the NPC you bit, will attack you if they catch you. It will also cause some NPCs that would normally be okay with murder to become Annoyed with you. Some NPCs are still relatively safe targets, however. Slum Dwellers especially are good to eat, as they are plentiful and often walk in the streets alone.
You can ask a Doctor to 'administer a Blood Bag' up to three times per level, then recover the lost health by biting people. You can also buy a bag of blood per level from the Loadout Machine. As long as you have the Jugularious trait, you can use the Quick-Heal button to restore health from these blood bags.
