|Description||Sucks blood and patience|
The Vampire Brat (Vampirus Vexus) is an undead monster child created when an especially unruly child stumbles upon a graveyard and refuses to return home, the combining of two opposite auras of juvenile stubbornness and eternal undeath creating a metamorphosis in the child's body, but leaving the foul spoiled personality intact. The resulting monster is an undead fiend who, though small and diminutive, will lock onto one specific hero to pester and pester them until they finally play with them. "Playing" usually meaning sucking their blood.
Mothers of Godville, especially in the town of Trollbridge, often warn their children against acting up by telling them to behave or they will become a vampire. The threat of becoming a Vampire Brat is usually enough incentive for Godville children to listen to their parents and steer clear of places they should not be, but children who do not heed the folk legends and warnings often find out the hard way just how true they are.
Because a Vampire Brat is undead, they cannot be destroyed by normal means. And even when they are destroyed they are quick to rise again to continue their annoyance. The best strategy is often to steer their attention to something big and shiny, then run before they realize they have been tricked. Be warned, if a Vampire Brat catches up to you after being scorned in this way, your punishment will be tenfold worse than it was before.
