|“||I'm going to make him strong, fast, like my children. Indestructible. For one final time I'm going to tap into the dark magic I used a thousand years ago. Like my husband Mikael before him I will make Alaric into a true hunter, the vampire to end all vampires.||”|
Enhanced Original Vampire is a term used to describe the type of Original Alaric Saltzman became when Esther recreated the Immortality Spell to turn him. This meant that he could not be killed at all as , thus meaning even the White Oak Stake or the White Oak Ash Daggers have no effect on him at all as it will not even neutralize him. His darker personality was enhanced as well, as Alaric's true personality is now gone completely, replaced by the psychotic vampire-hating serial killer that was created as a result of using the Gilbert Ring to come back to life too many times, and Esther manipulating his mind every time he died.
Alaric was created to hunt down and kill all of The Originals, which made him superior to all regular Originals, and possibly even Niklaus, the Original Hybrid. His physical strength is shown when Klaus and Alaric fight in the school and the latter gains the upper hand by breaking Klaus's wrist, slamming Klaus against a locker, and then throwing him to the floor. After Alaric gains the upper hand, he attempts to stake Klaus with the White Oak Stake while he is on the ground, however Klaus manages to hold Alaric to a stalemate. Elena, fearing for Klaus' life, decides she has to intervene to save Klaus. Especially when she realized Alaric's true weakness, Elena then threatens to cut her own throat and when Alaric refuses to let Klaus go she begins to cut herself. This causes Alaric to lose his composure, giving Klaus time to push Alaric off and take Elena away from the scene. Alaric easily overpowers Rebekah in Before Sunset, and The Departed. as Esther did not intend to have any more vampires roaming the earth after the Originals and their descendants have been killed.The Enhanced Original returns in Home, where after several Travelers were massacred by a gas leak explosion at the Grill, Alaric's spirit was brought back into the physical world using a spell that Silas taught Bonnie. The spell is cast and maintained by Liv Parker, until her brother ends it. His life was saved by Josette Laughlin before he could die from the wound that Esther inflicted upon him back in Season Three.
After the change, enhanced original vampires' physical appearance and muscle mass is enhanced, eye color changes, and they no longer need to breathe, though they often still do so out of habit, and feel uncomfortable without their sense of smell - the first warning of an impending threat. The ability to cut off airflow from their lungs allows them to remain submerged underwater for as long as they wish, and contributes greatly to their excellent swimming capabilities.As they grow older and more disciplined, Enhanced Original Vampires can learn to smell differences between the scents of various humans' blood, as well as scents of other things (like fabrics - the unique scent of denim). The range of their senses can be increased (thought only fractionally) through concentration.
They can hear sounds coming from several miles away, and even with their eyes closed, they can be sure that there are multiple people in a room thanks to their varied breathing patterns. They can hear the sound of a heartbeat, a pulse thudding in a vein, and words spoken too quietly or too fast for humans to detect. Their enhanced vision allows them to see the smallest details, and extends into the ultraviolet region of the light spectrum. Enhanced Original Vampire vision is unhindered by darkness, and is so acute that they view humans as blind, or "mud-eyed", in comparison. Bella describes her sight as being better than an eagle's. Vampires find wearing glasses or contact lenses to be uncomfortable or irritating because they see the miniature imperfections (ex. scratches).
Their scent is based on their venom, and is pleasant, not only to humans, but to other vampires as well. Their body's natural changes no longer occur. They cannot age or grow (things such as fingernails, toenails, but hair will be able to grow - if they are cut they will grow back. However, if an arm, leg, nose, or other such appendage should be removed [still painfully], it can be easily reattached. Since the venom is adhesive, coating the severed end with it will help it heal faster). They show no physical and mental illnesses and defects, and their voice becomes more alluring, melodic, and seductive. Their heart no longer beats. The venom replaces all of the natural chemical processes and functions in the body.
It wets and pools in the mouth instead of saliva. It coats the eyes, burning through contacts after only a few hours, protecting them from damage and thus eliminating all necessity and reason to cry. It also lubricates them, allowing them to move around more easily within their sockets. As Enhanced Original vampires describe themselves, they are unchanging, "living stone" beings frozen exactly as they were when they were transformed. (Though to another vampire, the granite-skin feels smooth, soft, and warm and not the icy-hard touch a human would feel). Requiring little or no change to produce sperm, males can still breed, while female Enhanced Original vampires cannot, their bodies no longer accommodate the changes related to pregnancy. Though, Jayma was able to birth her mate's child while she was a Enhanced Original vampire and is the only known Enhanced Original vampire to give birth. In male vampires, the venom takes on a form so similar to seminal fluid that can bond with a human ovum, making possible the creation of a human-vampire hybrid. The underlying biochemistry and physiology is currently unknown.
Enhanced Original Vampires, although essentially immortal and indestructible, can be killed. Even a human could accomplish it under the right circumstances - venom and venom-based fluids are very flammable. However, humans are unable to compete with Enhanced Original vampires in strength and speed, therefore they are unlikely to succeed. If a human were to succeed in lighting a Enhanced Original vampire on fire (which would probably be impossible due to their reflexes), the Enhanced Original vampire could simply take a quick high-speed bound to put it out. This is why it is necessary to rip a Enhanced Original vampire's body to pieces before incinerating them into ashes, to prevent them from putting out the fire before it can do serious damage. This is the only known way to kill a Enhanced Original vampire. Werewolves and Shape-shifters are very capable of killing vampires, as at least the latter is at a slight advantage over them as long as their combat techniques are up to par.
Enhanced Original Vampires have stronger emotions than humans. Sadness, happiness, envy, love, anger, all emotions are stronger than when they were human. Newborn Enhanced Original vampires are very temperamental and have mood swings because they are in need of adjustment to their new emotions. That is why newborn Enhanced Original vampires are quick to startle and anger. In large groups, they are likely to pick fights (often in what they perceive as self-defense) and kill one another. They will continue to have mood swings as they adjust to their new emotions.Emotions such as love and passion are also heightened - for example, when a pair of Enhanced Original vampires are mated, they are mated for life. Their feelings never fade. Similarly, if a Enhanced Original vampire's mate is killed, he/she will not rest until the person responsible for their mate's death is killed. The immense pain of losing a mate never fades.
Powers and Abilities Edit
Super Strength: Enhanced Original Vampires are much stronger than Immortals, non-original vampires, werewolves, non-original hybrids, and humans. They even possess enough strength to overpower Original Vampires and fight the Original Hybrid on equal ground. An Enhanced Original Vampire like Alaric was able to easily overpower Stefan,Damon and Rebekah, the latter being an Original Vampire. It should be noted that the only Original Vampire that Alaric has faced has been Rebekah. It is unknown how Alaric would perform physically against the likes of Elijah, Kol, Finnor Mikael. they grow stronger with age.also Enhanced Original Vampires have limitless physical strength, especially in direct sunlight. In terms of what they can do, they can easily overpower and kill humans and most galactic beings; bend and break reinforced steel; crush wood panels; lift heavy objects; decimate large structures; and level whole cities. Enhanced Original Vampires strength increases with age, meaning the older a Enhanced Original Vampire grows, the stronger he or she becomes.Upon being made into a vampire, Enhanced Original Vampires strength increased to that of a hundred men; to the point where they could shatter stone and wood with their bare hands, crush/reshape metal, dismantle cars, and single-handedly defeat a small army, challenging and overpowering/killing Humans in combat with ease and/or toss them across a room. they can run into a charging army of 1000 men and trampled them and sent them flying through the air with the force of a stampeding animal. Eventually, they will slaughtered them all, proving themselves as a literal one man army. Enhanced Original Vampires has demonstrated sufficient strength strong enough to tear off limbs, rip out throats bare-handed, and snap chains and casually hurl grown men through the air. their strength is so great that they could stop a werewolf in human form in his tracks with one finger and throw a large equipment that was thrown at them by Frankenstein's Monster.
Super Speed: Enhanced Original Vampires are much faster than Immortals, non-original vampires, werewolves, non-original hybrids and humans. They are also faster than regular original vampires and possibly Original Hybrids. They are able to stop other supernatural species in their tracks and run miles in mere minutes. they grow faster with time. Enhanced Original Vampires have superhuman speed that is greater than humans which allows them to have the supernatural ability to run, jump, and move at superhuman velocity much faster than humans, extremely quick, moving faster than the human eye can possibly see and perceive, allowing them to sidestep/outrun bullets and cover miles in a short time, and werewolves in human form, both in speed, agility, and reflexes, and can out run a werewolf even in wolf form and can move at amazing speeds, to the point where they appear to be blurs. Enhanced Original Vampires are the fastest vampire creatures. Enhanced Original Vampires also move and fly fast enough to run on water. Enhanced Original Vampires can also accelerate their movements to cover short distances in an instant, faster than the human eye can see. When running across long distances, their speed is so great that they appear as vibrating blurs of motion. They can run in excess of 100 miles per seconds. The creature’s sheer speed, combined with its unnatural stealth, makes it impossible for the Enhanced Original vampire’s prey to detect or escape from the Enhanced Original vampire until it is too late. Enhanced Original Vampires are able to avoid gunfire easily, and react with unnatural quickness to any threat, due to the creature’s superhuman reflexes. Enhanced Original Vampires themselves however, are able to perceive this movement. Their vision and reflexes are accelerated like their movement, as shown when Eric Northman was able to perceive a speeding bullet in slow motion, and himself in normal motion while moving at superhuman speed. Just like their strength, their speed increases with time and age, as older Enhanced Original vampires are significantly faster than younger Enhanced Original vampires. In addition, Enhanced Original vampires have heightened reflexes that are similarly heightened. also Being an Enhanced Original Vampire, they possesses superior speed, even to other Vampires, and is much faster than humans, shapeshifters, the oldest of normal vampires, and the Alpha Elders. Enhanced Original Vampires can move too much faster than the human eye can follow and can swiftly chase down animals, dodge/side-step bullets fired at him at point-blank range, and outmaneuver and effortlessly dodge their attacks, no matter what effort the human adversaries put into their attacks. they can exceed the sound barrier when running at full speed.they move around short and long distances rapidly making them look like a blur.
Super Senses: Enhanced Original Vampires have extremely keen senses of hearing, sight and smell. Enhanced Original Vampires have even greater senses again. Being Enhanced Original Vampires, Enhanced Original heightened senses and aura perception are heightened to 11, allowing their to see far into the distance and see the blood in the veins of their opponents. Enhanced Original vampires can hear, see in total darkness, and has superior senses of smell, taste, and hearing compared to vampires that is better than humans and can also sense things that breathers can't. This was shown in "Eclipse" when he knew Sydney was trying to leave the castle. they can taste garlic and vervain in one's blood and hear sounds from afar. they can even see past the night sky to see the galaxy and all the stars in it clearly. their hearing allowed them to hear a spider trapping its prey as if it were large and were echoing throughout the forest.They can smell a drop of fresh blood from a mile away. When a vampire hunts, he uses his sense of smell to find prey and hearing to track its movements. Enhanced Original Vampires can smell objects several miles away in a good breeze. Smell is intense to Enhanced Original vampires, because one can smell the blood of his prey. By not breathing, they feel uncomfortable due to the lack of smell, though they can survive without it.As they grow older and more disciplined, Enhanced Original vampires can learn to smell differences between the scents of various humans' blood, as well as scents of other things (like fabrics - the unique scent of denim). The range of their senses can be increased (though only fractionally) through concentration. Enhanced Original vampires mostly rely on smell to find their prey and take in the environment, which is partly why they find the lack of breathing uncomfortable. Enhanced Original vampire can hear any muted sounds. When Bella completed her transformation into a Enhanced Original vampire, she listened to the sound of rap music until it slowly faded away. She then realized that it was coming from a car with its window rolled down on a freeway, miles away from where she was. When she went on her first hunt, Bella could hear the fluttering wings and heartbeats of small birds flying through the forest. She could also hear the scurrying noises of animals that were beneath the ground, as well as an army of ants on the ground. They also have an instinctive reaction to danger, usually from ill-willed Enhanced Original vampires.
They can hear sounds coming from several miles away, and even with their eyes closed, they can be sure that there are multiple people in a room thanks to their varied breathing patterns. They can hear the sound of a heartbeat, a pulse thudding in a vein, and words spoken too quietly or too fast for humans to detect.While running, a Enhanced Original vampire can see and sense everything that is around them, allowing them to keep tabs of their surroundings and avoid hitting anything unnecessarily. A Enhanced Original vampire vision is incomparable. Everything is much sharper, and more defined as a Enhanced Original vampire, and their vision is unhindered by darkness. As a vampire, colors are much more vibrant. Humans are considered blind or mud-eyed in comparison. Bella described looking back at her human life as like looking through a thick, dark veil because of her new incredible vision. Their sense of sight exceeds by far that of a hawk: They can see objects in microscopic detail, and can see into the invisible spectrum of light. Enhanced Original vampires also have much better depth perception than humans.
Their enhanced vision allows them to see the smallest details, and extends into the ultraviolet region of the light spectrum. Bella describes her sight as being better than an eagle's. Enhanced Original vampires find wearing glasses or contact lenses to be uncomfortable or irritating because they see the smallest imperfections such as very small scratches and optical aberrations imperceptible to humans. Despite being indestructible and hard-skinned, Enhanced Original vampires can feel the things they touch, no matter the softness; such as fur, the coolness of wind, etc. They can feel the slightest changes of temperature around them, though they are not bothered by it. They can feel the heat radiating from a human several meters away. When their skins meet sunlight, they can also feel its warmth. Physical pain is implied when their bodies are being ripped apart by something with similar supernatural strength. Enhanced Original Vampires have a similarly enhanced sense of taste allowing them to taste flavors with much more depth and precision. They can taste the differences of particles in their atmosphere. They can also detect minute differences between similar flavors. Even as a newborn, Enhanced Original vampires are able to taste if the human they are feeding on has recently ingested drugs or alcohol.
Regeneration: In addition to being indestructible, whatever damage a Enhanced Original vampire does in fact suffer can be healed through the consumption of human blood.Being a Enhanced Original Vampire, Enhanced Original Vampire has regenerative abilities and they can heal from all fatal and non-fatal injuries, including disabilities and gunshots, even ones to their head, faster than humans. Enhanced Original Vampire undead, immortal flesh heals in seconds from any wound without causing them any seeming discomfort. Enhanced Original Vampire is impervious to disease and heals instantaneously from any bodily wound of any severity and is immune to disease. Consuming blood speeds up the process. Enhanced Original Vampire can return from the dead by sunlight with some blood, with their body fully restored.
Supreme Beauty: Enhanced Original Vampires are supremely beautiful and use it to affect others. A Enhanced Original Vampire is always, and under any circumstances, physically, personally and socially perfect, graceful and flawless, without anything that would make them look unattractive or distract from their presence. This allows them to attract and seduce their preys.
Venom: When a Enhanced Original vampire catches their prey, they bite into its neck and injects their venom into its bloodstream while feeding. This serves as a way to immobilize their prey while also initiating the conversion from human to Enhanced Original vampire, allowing the predator to feed on his or her prey without it trying to resist, even though it would not have done any good. While the venom is transformative to humans, it is deadly to animals and shape-shifters. werewolves, however, are completely immune to its effects.
If a Enhanced Original vampire loses a body part, they can use venom to reattach the lost limb, though it is able to reattach hair.
Vampirism: In addition to the various mental and physical benefits that Enhanced Original vampires are heir to, they also possess the ability to turn others into Enhanced Original vampires as well. Each new Enhanced Original vampires is traditionally subservient to the one who "turned" them, but some strong-willed Enhanced Original vampires have been known to rebel against their masters. When a Enhanced Original vampire bites a human, the venom will be passed from the Enhanced Original vampire's mouth into the person's bloodstream. If the blood contaminated with venom isn't fully sucked away, the human's heart will pump the venom throughout his or her cardiovascular system and start to infect every cell it passes within the host's body. Over the span of 2-3 days, the venom will have saturated all cells within the host, completing his or her transformation into a Enhanced Original vampire. The process is known to be slow and painful, described with the feeling of being burned alive.
Super Durability: Enhanced Original Vampires can take far more trauma than other vampires, werewolves, and humans can without much discomfort or injury. Enhanced Original Vampires can heal faster than normal vampires when exposed to vervain and wood does not seem to weaken them, even the White Oak stake will not affect the Enhanced Original Vampire.
Invulnerability: Enhanced Original Vampires have few weaknesses compared to the original vampires, so they cannot be harmed by any stake even the White Oak Stake or the White Oak Ash Daggers, although unlikely as the magic that makes Original Vampires and Enhanced Original Vampires bodies completely indestructible is making decapitation or heart extraction impossible.
Superhuman Agility: Enhanced Original Vampires have and possess amazing supernatural-human agility as well. Enhanced Original Vampires are very agile and flexible, as they have shown that they can move, jump very high, climb up walls, scale sheer surfaces, jump very high off buildings without hurting themselves, perform amazing acrobatic and parkour feats and run incredibly fast without difficulty or exhaustion, making them more agile than humans and animals, as well as leap to great heights and are nimble enough to scale sheer surfaces with amazing speed, vertically or horizontally, much like a spider. They are very good at climbing. This makes it much easier to perform jumps, flips and other gymnastic maneuvers. Enhanced Original Vampires also have greater reflexes than humans. Enhanced Original Vampires can jump with their super speed too. Enhanced Original Vampires that feed on human blood can jump much higher than Enhanced Original vampires that feed on animal blood. This ability would allow them to access places that would be otherwise impossible for a human to reach. They can jump further than any normal human, such as from roof top to roof top or building to building. These abilities increase with age.
Decelerated Falling: Enhanced Original Vampires fall from great heights at a much slower rate than humans, almost appearing to float. This power was first seen when Harmony is seen jumping off the top of Oracle’s church and landing on her feet without any ill effects.
Enhanced Emotions: Enhanced Original Vampires experience emotions more powerfully than humans. Emotions like love, joy, and happiness are intensified for Enhanced Original vampires allowing them to live life more intensely. This ability allows Enhanced Original vampires to feel emotions at their peak regardless of their age. Enhanced Original Vampires have been shown experiencing emotions as powerfully today as they did thousands of years ago. Conversely sadness, depression, guilt, fear and anger are also amplified causing most Enhanced Original vampires to "turn off" their emotions.
Emotional Control: Enhanced Original Vampires have the supernatural ability to remove or dull their emotions. They can "switch off" their ability to feel emotions such as fear and guilt allowing them to kill without remorse, go against any opponent without fear and relieve themselves of depression and sadness. A Enhanced Original vampire without there emotions is far more calculating and direct than one who keeps them on. However, the Enhanced Original vampire will become a remorseless killer almost unrecognizable from the person they truly are.
Enhanced Superhuman Senses: Enhanced Original Vampires have and possess much stronger heightened senses than humans and non-pure-bred werewolves. They have all the five senses humans have, only they are enhanced to a higher level. The can and have the supernatural ability to hear, see, smell, and also taste better than humans beyond the human limit, as their extremely keen senses of sight, smell, hearing, and touch are of supernatural keenness that are superior to those of humans, comparable on many levels to a wolf’s, and far exceed those of humans and werewolves. Their senses are heightened to 11.
- Sight: They are able to see better than humans. Enhanced Original Vampires have razor-sharp senses of sight and can see with perfect clarity in the complete and total darkness of the night, to the point of being able to detect the bodily heat emanations from its victims. Enhanced Original Vampires also seem to have night vision.
- Hearing: A Enhanced Original vampire's razor-sharp sense of hearing is much greater than a human's. Their hearing is comparable to a bat or an owl, possessing a level of sensitivity on par with the bat’s own echo-sensitivity. They can hear whispered conversations, even ones in far of buildings and on phones, hear voices coming from another room, and hear a human's heartbeat.
- Smell: Enhanced Original Vampires possess and enhanced sense of smell is much greater than a human's which allows them to smell anything, things that humans would not. Their senses of smell is as acute as that of a wolf or a dog’s, enabling the creature to track its prey for miles by the scent of the victim’s blood alone, a sensation that the Enhanced Original vampire relishes. Enhanced Original Vampires are also able to tell individual people apart by the scent of their blood coursing through their veins or bodily odors. A Enhanced Original vampire can even sense a werewolf's presence purely by smell, as werewolves give off a unique smell that only Enhanced Original vampires can smell. They are also capable of catching the scent off blood from several meters to far away. A Enhanced Original vampire can track a human's blood over long distances. Giles once warned the Scoobies that, "Once a Enhanced Original vampire has your scent, it's for life."
- Touch: The Enhanced Original Vampire’s sense of touch is amazingly acute, as the creature can feel the heartbeat of a potential victim through thick walls, or it can detect the vibrations of a hunter’s footsteps and the direction of the footsteps, enabling the Enhanced Original Vampire to either escape or prepare an ambush for the would-be hunter.
- Sixth Sense: In addition to its five senses, Enhanced Original vampires possess a preternatural sixth sense. They can instinctively sense impending danger, usually posed by humans. The revenant can sense emanations of good or evil, instinctively avoiding the former while congregating in the latter. Like their strength, their senses seem to increase with age as they improve and grow stronger over time, as Luther was able to smell Kate, while none of the younger Enhanced Original vampires could.
- Mind Compulsion: Enhanced Original Vampires have the supernatural ability to influence, control and manipulate the body, mind, thoughts, emotions, behavior, and soul and alter or erase the memories of an animal's or a human's mind. Calling it "compelling", it is an ability that comes naturally with vampirism. Normal vampires cannot "compel" other supernatural creatures, as it does not seem to work on werewolves, ghosts and other vampires, whereas Enhanced Original Original Vampires can compel other vampires and vampire/werewolf hybrids.
- Immortality - Being a the Enhanced Original Vampire, as a walking corpse, like all vampires,they are immortal, is not subject to the passing of time, and has an infinite lifespan, as they no longer possesses a lifespan nor does they age or decay. But the only way they are able to sustain it is to drink the blood of humans. for example Dracula who is over 10,000 years old but looks in his 40s. He made a deal with the Devil, or Lucifer, to live forever. they heal from any wound of any severity and is immune to all forms of illnesses, toxins, poisons, or disease.Enhanced Original undead status makes them exempt from both physical aging and other dangers that would kill a living body, such as toxins and diseases. However, Enhanced Original vampire needs to feed on human blood to sustain that life. they maintain the youth and health of an attractive young people despite having surpassed the lifespan of an average healthy human and heals from all non-fatal and fatal injuries. Consuming blood speeds up the process and will allow them to maintain their vitality. If they are damaged at all, whatever damage they experiences will instantaneously be gone as though there was no damage the moment after. Enhanced Original can even live in a dormant state for centuries without having to feed on people, though when they awakens from these long periods of slumber their bloodlust can be near insatiable.
- Vampiric Weakness Immunity - Being Enhanced Original Vampire, unlike all vampires, even the alpha elders,they can't be killed by silver, stakes, or holy weapons.
- Vampire Demon Form - Enhanced Original Original Vampire has the ability to turn into a large demon bat-like creature unlike regular vampire. In this form, they can fly, move at alarming speeds and is strong enough to fight a werewolf.

- Telepathy - Being the Enhanced Original Vampire, Enhanced Original vampire can hear one's mind. Enhanced Original vampire can also read the minds of humans, shapeshifters, the oldest of normal vampires, the alpha elders, slayers, priests, and hunters.
- Telepathic Connection - Being a Enhanced Original vampire ,Enhanced Original Vampire has a connection with the vampires they have sired allowing their to hear their cries from far anytime.
- Vampire Creation - Like all vampires, Enhanced Original Vampire can pass their curse to others, due to them being Enhanced Original Vampire.
- Bat Swarm - Being Enhanced Original Vampire, Enhanced Original Vampire holds dominion over the night and all its creatures. they can call upon bats to do their will Dracula after feeding on his wife to save their son and can transform into a swarm of bats at will. their clothing and anything they holds, like their sword etc. also dematerializes into bats with them. Enhanced Original Vampire also has the ability to change their appearance by transforming their face to have grey and decayed looking skin, a dislocated, larger and more animalistic mouth and lateral teeth fangs, pointed and sharp finger tips and hands, and bright red glowing pupils, as well as their eyes becoming distorted in color and completely black.
- Vampirism - Being the Enhanced Original Vampire, Enhanced Original Vampire possess the ability to turn others into vampires by allowing them to ingest their blood, which will seemingly poison and rapidly kill them and cause them to have monstrous dreams with images of the people they love the most being in danger or dying and preditoral animals with vampiric red eye and some glimpses of a vampires clawed hands and teeth. They will then awaken in another place hours later and will adjust to their new traits and senses. If they do not drink blood for the span of three days, they will become human again by the morning of the last day. If they do drink blood, their condition will be inreversable and all consuming.
- Hypnosis - Enhanced Original Vampire main power was their hypnotic abilities. their eyes command the obedience of Humans, rats, bats, flies, owls, and wolves. they can make humans do what they wants even with a click of their fingers. This is described as their "thrall". they can activate this power at will without the need of physical contact or even gaining the victims concentration, simply by commanding their victim immediately to do it. With it, they could reduce anyone into a Renfield-like state, making those they control refer to they as their master, dedicated to please they in order to become a Enhanced Original Vampire themselves, turn against their friends, eat insects and spiders and even change their mannerisms and posture into something resembling an Igor. However, Enhanced Original Vampire influence on a Slayer doesn't totally remove their free mind but makes them willing and submissive if not hesitant. This however stops if or when they drink their blood, the shock of its' taste which is 'gross' can bringing them back to their senses.
- Fireballs - Enhanced Original Vampire can create and throw destructive balls of fire. He showed this when he helped destroy the Slayers' super weapon.

When an Original Vampire's true face is revealed, the sclera of their eyes turns blood-red, dark veins appear under their eyes as the blood pumps forcefully through them, and their canine teeth extend into razor-sharp fangs. An Enhanced Original Vampire's true face can be revealed whenever they wish, but it will appear against their will whenever they are aroused by the scent of blood, or are feeling intense emotions such as anger, lust, sadness, etc. An Enhanced Original Vampires fangs are extremely sharp which gives them the ability to tear into any substance (including and especially flesh) and tear off limbs. With the fangs come the darkened veins under the eyes as well.
Demonic-Creature Powers Edit
After drinking from the blood of a Slayer in order to get to full strength and power, Enhanced Original vampires transformed into a demon-bat-like creature and becomes more powerful than before, becoming among the most powerful creatures in existence on planet Earth. they have all their previous powers and some new and stronger ones. These are Enhanced Original vampire powers in their true form, which boosts all of their powers.Enhanced Original vampire not only possesses superhuman physical abilities, but also psychic and magical powers which make them a formidable force. Being a primordial version of vampire, these powers were strengthened when they consumed human blood and may also be augmented . When their in their human form they look completely normal. However, when they calls upon their powers or when their is thirsty for blood, their upper canines grow into fangs and their eyes turn blood-red. they also have these powers in their human form. Also, as the oldest vampire in the world, these powers grow stronger with time, age, and consumption of human blood. their new powers are:
Supernatural Strength - Being Enhanced Original vampire Original Vampire and as the second and oldest of their vampire kind in existence, older than even the Alpha Elders, Enhanced Original vampire possesses the tremendously immense physical strength, even for a Vampire, of 10-100 or more so strong men, which far surpasses that of any other Vampire, including the Alpha Elders.Enhanced Original vampire advanced age and experience gives them a physical advantage over all vampires seen to date, as they is even considerably far much stronger than some demons, alpha elder vampires, original and hybrids, any other average non-original and original vampires, shapeshifters, slayers, priests, supernatural hunters, and humans. their strength is so great they could stop a werewolf, whilst in human form, in their tracks with one finger and throw a large equipment that was thrown at them by Adam. they held/restrained and broke Logan's neck with one hand when coming out of desiccation, when Logan himself possessed enhanced strength. they can single-handedly defeat a large army and overpower Petrova with ease. they are able to decapitate other species, even younger vampires, with a simple, single swiping chop of their hand/arm, shatter windows and doors with even the smallest objects, throw people through walls, tear out the hearts of younger vampires and other creatures, and punch an untransformed werewolf with enough force to tear off one side of his face and was able to single handedly overpower and kill a fully transformed werewolf with ease. they are also able to go toe-to-toe with the Original Hybrid, Petrova, and hold their own and, although Petrova's raw strength is so great, not only Enhanced Original vampire immense superhuman strength, but also superior combat skills allowed them to prevail. they was even able to fight Petrova even when she was in her wolf form, even while they themselves was in human form. their strength is such that they said it once took a three demons to restrain them, even after being continually filled with dead man's blood and right after receiving two further doses of dead man's blood directly to the neck. they are also even able to hold their own against the Turok-Hans, pushing even the Queen away with one arm with great force. their Demon Vampire form boosts their power.

The ability to cause illusions also allows a form of shapeshifting, since he can cause beings to believe that they are seeing Dracula in the form of another. They can be used on multiple people in multiple locations simultaneously. These illusions are convincing enough to actually make an Original like Petrova believe that she's on the verge of death after Dracula made him perceive himself getting stabbed in the back with the indestructible White Oak Stake, and it wasn't until she experienced great emotional upheaval with Harmony that Petrova was able to break herself free from it.

In addition, Dracula can communicate telepathically with all of his "children" (Mia called it his "psychic bat-signal"). Connecting with his children has an effect on them. When he contacts even the Original Vampires (which may have been a world-wide communication), they were each filled with a sense of euphoria and lost consciousness for the duration of his abstract visual message.

- Combat Mastery Skills - Being the Original Vampire, Dracula has shown to be a master skilled and expert fighter even when unarmed in hand to hand combat with centuries of experience, capable of fighting Rayne and even Oracle on almost even footing and even almost defeating them on more than one occasion. When Petrova's army of vampires took him on, despite being overwhelmed to begin with, he was able to fight them, evenly and overpower all of them, through his fighting skills and Original Vampire powers and abilities. In that single fight, he killed roughly twenty four vampires single-handedly, showing his skills as a combatant even further.
As they grow older and more disciplined, vampires can learn to smell differences between the scents of various humans' blood, as well as scents of other things (like fabrics - the unique scent of denim). The range of their senses can be increased (though only fractionally) through concentration. Vampires mostly rely on smell to find their prey and take in the environment, which is partly why they find the lack of breathing uncomfortable.
- Enhanced Hearing: enhanced Original Vampires can hear the most muted sounds. When Bella completed her transformation into a vampire, she listened to the sound of rap music until it slowly faded away. She then realized that it was coming from a car with its window rolled down on a freeway, miles away from where she was. When she went on her first hunt, Bella could hear the fluttering wings and heartbeats of small birds flying through the forest. She could also hear the scurrying noises of animals that were beneath the ground, as well as an army of ants on the ground. They also have an instinctive reaction to danger, usually from ill-willed vampires.
They can hear sounds coming from several miles away, and even with their eyes closed, they can be sure that there are multiple people in a room thanks to their varied breathing patterns. They can hear the sound of a heartbeat, a pulse thudding in a vein, and words spoken too quietly or too fast for humans to detect.
- Night Vision: While running, a vampire can see and sense everything that is around them, allowing them to keep tabs of their surroundings and avoid hitting anything unnecessarily. A vampire's vision is incomparable. Everything is much sharper, and more defined as a vampire, and their vision is unhindered by darkness.
- Enhanced Vision: As a vampire, colors are much more vibrant. Humans are considered blind or mud-eyed in comparison. Bella described looking back at her human life as like looking through a thick, dark veil because of her new incredible vision. Their sense of sight exceeds by far that of a hawk: They can see objects in microscopic detail, and can see into the invisible spectrum of light. Vampires also have much better depth perception than humans.
Their enhanced vision allows them to see the smallest details, and extends into the ultraviolet region of the light spectrum. Bella describes her sight as being better than an eagle's. Vampires find wearing glasses or contact lenses to be uncomfortable or irritating because they see the smallest imperfections such as very small scratches and optical aberrations imperceptible to humans.
- Enhanced Touch: Despite being indestructible and hard-skinned, vampires can feel the things they touch, no matter the softness; such as fur, the coolness of wind, etc. They can feel the slightest changes of temperature around them, though they are not bothered by it. They can feel the heat radiating from a human several meters away. When their skins meet sunlight, they can also feel its warmth. Physical pain is implied when their bodies are being ripped apart by something with similar supernatural strength.
- Enhanced Taste: Vampires have a similarly enhanced sense of taste allowing them to taste flavors with much more depth and precision. They can taste the differences of particles in their atmosphere. They can also detect minute differences between similar flavors. Even as a newborn, vampires are able to taste if the human they are feeding on has recently ingested drugs or alcohol.
- Vampirism Fangs: Vampires have, possess, and can grow, extend, and react a pair/set of sharp, pointed, retractable fangs from their K-9 teeth that extend beyond their human teeth, that which that allow them to use them to feed themselves on the blood of humans and animals, they might come out when a vampire is close to blood or angry. Their fangs will occasionally come out and extend when they feed, are aroused by the scent of blood, or feeling intensely threatened or angered, especially if they are new vampires who have yet to gain complete control over their bloodlust. Vampire's teeth and fangs are also supernaturally much stronger than human teeth allowing them to tear into and rip the limbs off their prey and they can also rip open a human's neck and leave huge bite marks on the corpse of the victim it has fed on. The bite of a vampire can sever the limbs of humans and other creatures. This also enables them to be able to bite another person to turn them into vampires. In addition, if a vampire bites a human, either the human will die or become a vampire. Vampires are said to mainly bite the victim's neck, extracting the blood from a main artery. In folklore and popular culture, the term generally refers to a belief that one can gain supernatural powers by drinking human blood. The historical practice of vampirism can generally be considered a more specific and less commonly occurring form of cannibalism. The consumption of another's blood (and/or flesh) has been used as a tactic of psychological warfare intended to terrorize the enemy, and it can be used to reflect various spiritual beliefs.
- Clairvoyance/Supernatural perception: Like other supernatural species, as supernatural beings, vampires can constantly perceive, see, and hear ghosts. They can also sense werewolves, who give off a distinct, dog-like stench that can only be detected by vampires and other werewolves. Mother was able to sense the three "Orphans" that were hiding, while Aidan couldn't.
- Invisibility: Vampires have the power to render themselves invisible.
- Compelling Animals/Animal Control: Vampires are able to compel a crow to spy on humans, and go through entry ways into buildings. A 150-300 year old vampire can control one, 300-600 year old vampires can control two, etc. This is often useful for spying.
Weaknesses and Vulnerabilities Edit
- Beheading/Decapitation: Dismembering, severing, or removing the head of a vampire will result in instant and permanent death. If the head of a vampire is severed completely, the vampire will perish. Breaking the neck of a vampire only causes mild discomfort. Beheading is by far the most commonly used and effective method of killing vampires. Cutting off the head of a vampire can and will kill any Vampire, no matter how old or how powerful the creature may be. This grisly practice originates from the belief that the Vampire is incapable of existing without its head or heart, as it cannot regenerate these vital parts. Without its head, the Vampire is unable to wander about at night without the head to direct it. As with staking, spurting blood must be avoided at all costs.
- Fire: Fire causes vampires a great deal of pain and injury. If vampires are consumed by fire for a prolonged period of time, prolonged exposure to fire will result in permanent death and then they will die. Vampires can, however, quickly heal from even the worst burns, if given time and blood. However, if a vampire cannot take the time to heal from the burns, the vampire will die.
- Desiccation: When vampires go prolonged abstain periods and extended amounts of time without feeding from blood, their blood and skin begin to dry up and they begin to look like a mummy, as they will eventually desiccate and mummify. A lack of blood for a prolonged period of time will cause vampires to weaken and begin to resemble a corpse.
- Vervain: A mystic herb called vervain is poisonous to vampires. Exposure to or ingestion of vervain can cause a vampire to become severely feverish and weak. Also, physical contact with vervain will burn a vampire's skin. If a human is holding, wearing, or has vervain in their system, a vampire cannot hypnotize or compel anyone who has ingested vervain or has it on their person. Vervain can be mixed with a vampire's drink which, if drunk, will severely weaken them.
- Werewolf Bite: The bite of a werewolf and the poison, which involves injecting a toxic venom into the wound, is extremely lethal to vampires. It will cause them to hallucinate, grow severely weak and go rabid until it kills them. Petrovas' hybrid blood can cure the bite. Vampires suffering from the bite seem to always hallucinate moments from their past. A bite from a werewolf as the venom in the saliva will neutralize the vampire venom in their blood causing them to die and deteriorate. While typical vampires will eventually die from werewolf bites, it isn't lethal to Original vampires, though they still will experience the sickness and hallucination that accompanies it until their body heals.
- Dead Man's Blood: The use of blood from the recently deceased can also be used as a method to incapacitate vampires briefly.
- Werewolf Blood: If a vampire drinks werewolf blood, they began to bleed heavily from their eyes and nose and experience violent seizures. Moreover, a vampire who has drunk werewolf blood will be unable to create other vampires, instead creating defective, vampire-like mutants. The blood only remain in their system for a few weeks.
- Unidentified Flu Strain: If a vampire feeds from a human that had the mysterious new flu strain, then they will typically die within days.
