Well, whichever we do, I am still leaning toward the character concept I already mentioned. I'm thinking of designing them to be sort of like a support, for gameplay comparison. Like instead of just draining life from they enemy with Transfuse, they could transfer their own health to allies to heal them. That and things like making their blood pump faster to invigorate them and increase their strength and speed, and so on. They would be weaker than Vlad, and thus afraid of him, since he would kill them if he knew they existed and absorb the power of their line.
