PostSubject: Vampyric Gods and Goddesses   Sat Oct 13, 2012 7:00 pm

Vampyres who correspond their with the Divine often tend to associate with Gods and/or Goddesses that posses a reknown vampiric quality. While many practicing Vampyres continue to acknowledge Pagan Deities the same as non-vamps, they may feel an attraction to Gods and Goddesses connected with the Underworld.

Lilith. Lilith, also known as Lilitu, is the Dark Mother Goddess for many VampyreCrafte practitioners. She is considered the original vampire and a siren of ultimate beauty and seduction. The term succubus is often associated with Lilith. If she is not considered a Goddess, then she is definitely the spiritual forebearer for many vampyres. Lilith and her heirs were believed by the Israelites to feed upon infants and young men, drinking their life and their blood.

Lilith was probably borrowed by the Israelites from Babylonian lore, where she appears as a wild woman who haunts waste places. She is traditionally depicted naked, with long flowing hair, wings and the talons of a bird of prey in place of feet. As the Lady of Beasts, she is often accompanied by wild animals, usually lions or owls. While many view Cain as the Vampyric God to Lilith as the Vampyric Goddess, many consider the male counter-part of Lilith to be the vampiric man-bird Gelal, noted in the ancient Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh.

However, today the modern philosophy of the Lilith Tradition is a positive one; vampyre or not, many practitioners choose to acknowledge Lilith as a strong female figure and worship Her as a patron Goddess no longer affiliated with the death of children and the source of destruction as the Judeo-Christian myths portrayed. Many of the Lilians drink blood and also incorporate blood into their ritual. Greek God/dess Bloodlust. Many gods and goddesses in Greek stories had to supply spirits with the blood of humans and animals in order for these mysterious spirits to help them. Hera, the queen of the gods, took vengence upon a lover of Zeus by turning her into a creature of the night that devours her children or sucks their blood.

Hecate.Hecate is a Pagan Goddess associated with the Underworld. She is a Triple Goddess and possesses all 3 aspects of the Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone. She is associated with Vampyres due to her blood consumption. However, Hecate is most noted as the Dark Wise Crone who left the Underworld at night and haunted the crossroads with bloodthirst. Statues of her were set-up at crossroads; libations and offerings were made there to appease her appetite in order to limit her human consumption of blood.

The Empusai were believed to be daughters of Hecate, who came out of Underworld at night with equal bloodlust. According to folklore, the daughters were known shape-shifters whose natural form was said to have one leg of a mule and one leg that was bronze. They took the form of beautiful women to seduce the men. Their reputation included preying upon shepherds in their fields at night and men who traveled at night. The daughter Goddess Empusa is the most reknown vampiric daughter of Hecate Cain. To many, Cain is considered the Father of Vampyres and holds a Demi-God status. The lore of Cain is based on the fact that Caine was the first murderer and that when God sent him out to wander in the world, He cursed Cain with immortality. Some Lilithian traditions link Cain with Lilith due to both being thrown out of the Garden of Eden. Cain has without a doubt been a dark individual in the tale of slaying his brother Abel in the Garden of Eden; however, it is unclear if he was ever clearly depicted as vampiric before then. Most Cainites drink blood, although they also supplement this with life-energy. Kali.KALI is a Hindu deity known as the Goddess of Death or the Dark Mother. She is described as a black voluptuous woman with bloodthirsty eyes, which human blood drips from her long tongue - thus the very strong connection for modern vampyric practitioners of all forms of magick. Human skulls hang on strings around her body, snakes writhe around her neck and in each of her 10 hands, there are weapons. Since Kali is the Goddess of Death, she had to destroy everything, including her husband, since no visible thing is eternal.

Kali - Ma.Kali-Ma is distinct from Kali, as She is the ancient Hindu Goddess of change and transformation. Kali-Ma is the energy of destruction that brings forth the new life through death. By facing the energy of change, our lives are transformed.

Set. Many practitioners in the vampyre community link vampirism back to the Egyptian God Set. Egyptologists have recently suggested that Set is just a deification of an Egyptian high priest from very early times, and that the rivalry between Set and Osiris represents a rivalry between competing temples. In the Setians' view, Set was a high priest of a temple who developed a ritual of death and rebirth that allowed the soul to achieve immortality. The Setians believe that the rites described in the Egyptian Book of the Dead are only improperly recollected versions of this ritual. Set chose 72 associates to undergo this ritual with him and to travel eternity as undying spirits which were eternally renewed. The vampiric condition was a side effect of this ritual. The Setians believe then that vampirism is a spiritual condition, and it represents immortality as the soul is immortal and capable of reincarnation. Through pastlife regressions one can recall itself. Setians feed primarily upon life energy and generally abstain from the physical drinking of blood.


Sangomancy is defined in the Scrolls of Elorath as "a path of mixing blood and chaos magick where each initiate takes the best from other paths and combines them into his or her own interpretation." Many adept Sangomancy practitioners find personal communion with the Dark Deities such as Kali, Siva, Oshun, Set, Nepthys, Hadit, Nuit, Babalon, Loki, Cernunnos, and Discordia. It is important to understand that these Deities are not "evil" and should never be invoked with any type of malice intended. Many Deities who are connected with the Underworld in Mythology are prone to "mark or scar" the practitioner for any misappropriations of harmful magick done in the God or Goddess' name. Children of the Angels

The Nephilim.This definition is taken from Lexicon of the Sanguinarium. The Nephilim is a widespread belief within the vampiric community which asserts that vampyres are the descendants of the Nephilim. The Nephilim are demi-human beings who were sired by angels, as related in Enoch I, a book that was dropped from the Bible in the early stages of its canonization.

Some Nephilists believe that the vampyric condition is genetically traceable to these otherworldly fathers. Others are content to suggest that the Nephilim simply represent a higher kind of being which came down and intermingled with humanity. As far as the beliefs of the second order of Nephilists are concerned, vampyres experience their condition because they are more spiritual than most beings, with a higher "vibration" or "frequency" to their spirit which somehow burns their bodies out quicker and makes it necessary to feed. Some Nephilists feed upon blood, while many others feed primarily upon life-energy. Most seem to incorporate blood into their magick and ritual.

Vampiric Spirits

Vetala. A Vetala is a type of vampire, the angry spirit of a dead person whose funerary rites were not conducted. Trapped between life and after-life, the vetala manifest their hostility by disturbing mortals, driving them hysterical, killing them, or killing unborn children. Vetalas may also live inside of the corpses of humans. They may also inhabit the carcasses of animals, re-animating them as though they were alive again.

It is rather indicative of the authors plagiarism and lack of originality that an actual goddess loing associated with vampirism, and still remembered by Slavic peoples, has not been mentioned here.
