All The Types Of Vampires In V Wars Explained!

Welcome to Humor Nation. If you’re a fan of the Vampires and Ian Somerhalder then you must have surely seen the Netflix ‘V Wars’ by now. If you still haven’t then we highly suggest you get on Netflix and watch it today! The Netflix series is based on the V Wars anthology novels which ran from 2012 to 2016. The series depicts the events of a vampire apocalypse from the eyes of Dr. Luther Swann (Played by Ian Somerhalder), he has the responsibility to identify the virus which turns people into vampires, and he has to found a cure. Things get interesting when Dr. Luther’s close friend Michael Fayne is also infected with the virus. He becomes a vampire and instead of being terrified, he starts embracing his new life.

So Let’s Take A Look At The Different Kinds Of Vampires On V Wars!

As the show progresses, many new developments take place in the world of V Wars. Thanks to Dr. Swann, we learn that there are different kinds of vampires. There are two species of vampires- The Bloods & The Vourdalaks.


So what is the difference between the two species? Well, Dr. Luther Swann has a hypothesis that a person’s genes decide if it’ll become blood or a Vourdalak. A pathogen does not affect all humans and similarly, the people it does affect also have variations. For example, Sisters Mila and Danika shared common DNA and hence they both were turned into Vourdalaks whereas Michael Fayne has different DNA which resulted in him transforming into a Blood.



The Bloods are also known as the ‘Blood Nation’. They are the people who have been infected by the once buried in the Antarctic ancient pathogen. They have abilities such as increased healing, super strength, enhanced sight and hearing, and super speed. A person must have the NH47 gene in order to be transformed into a Blood. If they don’t have the gene then they’ll stay human, but ill. The people of Blood Nation have tried controlling their urges, they tried feeding on animals knowing it won’t satisfy their thirst. While some steal from blood banks. Luther works on creating an alternative called ‘BludSub’ for the Blood Nation to use. It works for a little while, but then creates adverse negative effects on the vampires.

Vourdalaks can feed on a person without killing them. Their bite produces a venom which makes their victim feel a high similar to a drug, this results in them enjoying when their blood being sucked out.
