How to become a vampire:
In the vampire diaries, in order to become a vampire there are 3 steps.
- Have vampire blood in your system - this means you need to either have drunken vampire blood or have injected yourself with it.
- Die - You must die while the vampire blood is still in your system. It does not matter how. If you do still have the blood in your system when you die then you will awaken again.
- To complete the transition you must feed on human blood. If you don't you will simply die (permanently).
In the vampire diaries a werewolf can become a vampire. If this happens then they are known as hybrids.
Heretics are rogue witches that have been turned into vampires.
