StatsEdit

BattleEdit

It appears with at least one other Vampire. Vampires have powerful physical attacks and can cast Woundga, reducing the party's maximum HP. Because of this, they should be taken out as quickly as possible using magic attacks, preferably those of a Ravager to take advantage of elemental weaknesses.

EtymologyEdit

Vampires are mythological or folkloric beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence, generally in the form of blood, of living creatures. Although vampiric entities have been recorded in many cultures, and may go back to "prehistoric times", the term vampire was not popularized until the early 18th century.

The name "Nosferatu" has been presented as possibly an archaic Romanian word, synonymous with "vampire". However, it was largely popularized in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by Western fiction such as Dracula, and the film Nosferatu. A few of the many suggested etymologies of the term are that it is derived from the Romanian Nesuferitu ("the insufferable/repugnant one") or Necuratu ("the unclean one, spiritus immundus"), terms typically used in vernacular Romanian to designate Satan (the Devil).
