Turbine's official Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach website has been updated with another monster profile feature, this time detailing the Vampire.
Never underestimate a vampire. Scheming, relentless, and wicked, the evil vampire is a force to be reckoned with. Unlike so many undead who are mindless minions of darkness, vampires are a different sort. Rather than being complete slaves to dark instinct or pawns of some evil power, vampires themselves are very often the evil power that is in control. If a vampire is enslaved to anything other than his or her coffin, that master is nearly always another vampire.
Vampires are always keen to manipulate others to further their own ends. When open confrontation becomes necessary, vampires will fall back on the power of their will and attempt to mentally dominate their opponents. If this fails, vampires can be extremely capable combatants.
