Curious or bored vampires might experimentally create spawn from blood-consuming animals. Most attempts fail, but bats can sometimes become true vampiric abominations. The master wields little control over their creation, allowing them to hunt the skies with a ravenous hunger for the living when not called down upon their enemies.
