Part: 1 Making a plan and preparing yourself!
Part 4: Personal Safety and Protection
How to get rid of a vampire:
By: Chase, Sydney, Brian, and Jenna
"The whole place was thick with dust. The floor was seemingly inches deep, except where there was recent footsteps, in which on holding down my lamp I could see marks of hobnails where the dust was cracked. The walls were fluffy and heavy with dust and in the corners were masses of spider's webs, whereon the dust had gathered till they looked like old tattered rags as the weight had torn them partly down." Pg 251
If there is Dust everywhere
If it's dark and suddenly is infested with vermin.
"We all followed his movements with our eyes, for undoubtedly some nervousness was growing on us, and he saw a whole mass of phosphorescence, which twinkled like stars. We all instinctive drew back. The whole place was becoming alive with rats...But even in the minute that had elapsed the number of the rats had vastly increased. They seems to swarm over the place all at once, till the lamplight, shining on their moving dark bodies all glittering,baleful eyes, made the place look like a bank of earth set with fireflies." Pg 253
If animals act strange around you
"Then a dog began to howl somewhere in a farmhouse far down the road a long, agonized wailing, as if from fear. The sound was taken up by another dog, and then another and another, till, borne on the wind..." Pg 11
If you have a sudden bad feeling
"I am in a sea of wonders. I doubt; I fear; I think strange things, which I dare not contest to my own soul. God keep me, if only for the sake of those dear to me!" pg 19
If they move in an inhuman way
"But my very feelings changed to repulsion and terror when I saw the whole man slowly emerge from the window, and begin to crawl down the castle wall over that dreadful abyss, face down, with his cloak spreading out around him like great wings." Pg 35
If the weather suddenly changes
"For it soon became apparent to all that the
would not sail as we expected. A thin mist began to creep up from the river, and it grew, and grew; till soon a dense fog enveloped the ship and all around her... The water rose and rose; and he begun to fear that he would lose the tide all together...For soon the the fog begin to melt away, and all was clear again." Pg 319
Part 3: Emergency Scenario
In order to keep vampires away from friends, out of your house and away from your belongings:
Tell your friends to beware of rats, owls, bats, moths, fox, or wolves that are not expressing their normal actions.
pg. 238 "He can command all the meaner things: the rat, and the owl, and the bat -- the moth, and the fox, and the wolf."
Do not invite strangers into your house.
pg. 241 "He may not enter anywhere at the first, unless there be someone of the household who bid him to come; though afterward he can come as he please."
Make sure you live near multiple sources running water (streams, rivers, etc.)
pg. 241 "Thus, whereas he can do as he will within his limit, when he have his earth-home, his coffin-home, his hell-home, the place unhallowed, as we saw when he went to the grave of the suicide at Whitby."
Make sure you do not live near any Transylvanian soil.
pg. 241 "It is said, too, that he can only pass running water at the slack or the flood of the tide."
Part 2: Warning Signs
Plant wild roses around your house and put them on your most personable belongings
pg. 241 "The branch of wild rose on his coffin keep him that he not move from it."
pg. 241 "Then there are things which so afflict him that he has no power, as the garlic that we know of; and as for things sacred, as this symbol, my crucifix, that was amongst us even now when we resolve, to them he is nothing, but in their presence he take his place far off and silent with respect."
Always wear a crucifix and always have garlic around your house.
Vampires can shape shift into wolves
"This vampire which is amongst us is of himself so strong in person as twenty men." pg 238
"He can within his range, direct the elements; the storm, the fog, the thunder" pg 238
Abnormal Animal behavior
"He can command all the meaner things: the rat, and the owl, and the bay- the moth, and the fox, and the wolf." pg 238
"His hands grasped mine...it seemed as cold as ice-more like the hand of a dead man than a living man." pg 16
Fascination with blood
"I had cut myself slightly...When the count saw my face, his eyes blazed with a sort of demoniac fury, and he suddenly made a grab at my throat." pg 26
No reflection in mirror
"I could see him over my shoulder. But there was no reflection of him in the mirror!" pg 26
"I stood close to a great door, old and sudden with large iron nails...I could see even in dim light that the stone was massively carved, but that the carving had been much worn by time and weather." pg 15
"..and most beautiful fabrics, and must have been of fabulous value when they were made, for they were centuries old." pg 20
Women Vampires are very voluptuous and like to sexually lure men into their traps!
"All three had brilliant white teeth ...and voluptuous lips. I felt in my heart a wicked, burning desire that they would kiss me with those red lips. The girl went on her knees..bent over me. There was a deliberate voluptuous which was both thrilling and repulsive." pg 38-39
A stake through the body
"...he can flourish when that he can fatten on the blood of the living." pg 241
"... he can only pass running water at the slack or the flood of the tide." pg 241
"The branch of wild rose on his coffin keep him that he move not from it..." pg 241
"... a sacred bullet fired into the coffin kill him so that he be true dead." pg 241
"... as for the stake through him, we know already of its peace." pg 241
"... or the cut-off head giveth rest." pg 241
Use a sacred bullet
Cut off its head
Keep vampire away from blood
Corner the vampire using flowing tides
Lay him to rest using a wild rose
Use garlic/sacred items (crucifix) to repel vampires
"Then there are things which so afflict him and he has no power, as the garlic that we know of; and as for things sacred, as this symbol, my crucifix." pg 241
Vampires are attracted to and live off of blood
