Finished the classifications, next thing to do is how to become one. I am leaning towards a blend of ideas there. I think i will go the disease rout though. Except for the Vampire Lords. They might go the possession route. Or something slightly different than that.

Some possible forms of infection that I have encountered watching movies and reading books about the subject:

The most common: Getting bitten by a vampire. (Bram Stoker/TES-lore/etc.).
Also getting wounded (i.e. in combat) and if that wound comes in contact with blood of a vampire or it's bite. (Buffy/Underworld/Sanctuary).
Injection with blood of an ancient vampire. (Sanctuary).
Consuming blood that was stored for this purpose (Sanctuary/Underworld).

There may be more possibilities, that I did not encounter so far.

The wound thing was what i was originally trying to figure out whether or not that was possible. Because the story i was writing could have gone through a different path had i known that much. But I managed to work the bite into the story. Good to know though hehe that will prove useful further on i am sure.

I would like to add one point of attention:
The injecting of ancient vampire blood (As seen in the Sanctuary) did not have a uniform effect on all of the "test"-subjects.

One was indeed transformed to a full vampire (Nicola Tesla).
One got (a number of) the superhuman powers (John Druitt/Jack the Ripper).
One got only the extreme long life time (Dr. Magnus).

Post Re: On Vampires
That is an interesting side point/twist. Having something that could result in various forms of infection. Gives me additional ideas/support for half-breads. hehe
