This aristocratic figure could easily pass for human if not for the grave-pale skin, red eyes, and long fangs.

A mythic vampire has ties to the earliest of its kind, being either one of the first vampires or the offspring of such ancient creatures.
“Mythic vampire” is an acquired template that can be added to any creature with the vampire template (referred to hereafter as the base vampire). A mythic vampire uses the base vampire’s stats and abilities except as noted here.
Mythic Subtype: A mythic vampire gains the mythic subtype, with a rank equal to half the CR of the base vampire.
A mythic vampire gains additional abilities depending on the base vampire’s CR instead of the mythic abilities it would get for having a rank. The mythic vampire gains all other benefits of having the mythic subtype: ability score bonuses, bonus hit points, mythic feats, mythic power, natural armor bonus, and spell resistance increase (if any).
CR: Adjust the base vampire’s CR according to its mythic rank (this template doesn’t increase the base vampire’s CR other than from the mythic rank). Note that a mythic vampire’s abilities on Table: Mythic Vampire Abilities depend on the base vampire’s CR, not the final CR of the mythic vampire.
Tier: A vampire with mythic tiers that becomes a mythic vampire loses its tiers (and all abilities from those tiers) and gains abilities from the mythic vampire template, according to the base vampire’s CR.
If a mythic vampire begins its turn in an area of direct sunlight, it is nauseated (rather than staggered), takes 10 points of damage, and loses its fast healing ability for that round. The vampire is still destroyed on the second round. At higher ranks, it can overcome or ignore other vampire weaknesses or aversions, as follows: garlic (4th rank), mirrors and holy symbols (6th rank), invitation (8th rank), running water (10th rank).
As an immediate action, a mythic vampire can expend one use of mythic power to grow claws on its hands, allowing it to make claw attacks or slam attacks. The claw attacks deal the same damage as its slams (including energy drain) plus 1d6 points of bleed damage.
The claws last for 1 hour or until dismissed by the vampire as a free action.
At 3rd rank, a mythic vampire’s channel resistance increases to +8. At 6th rank, it increases to +12. At 9th rank, it increases to +16.
At 4th rank, a mythic vampire can use its children of the night ability to call forth bat swarms, rat swarms, or wolves once per hour instead of once per day. Once per day, the mythic vampire can use children of the night to call forth 2d6 ghouls or 1d6+1 shadows. At 7th rank, once per day the mythic vampire can use children of the night to call forth 1d6 wraiths or mohrgs.
At 5th rank, a mythic vampire can summon and sculpt mist into realistic shapes as the major 220 image spell. A shape created in this way lasts for as long as the mythic vampire can see and concentrate upon it. In areas of particularly dense mist, this ability functions as mirage arcana instead of major image.
At 6th rank, as a standard action a mythic vampire can see, hear, and speak through the body of a creature it has dominated. The mythic vampire can use this ability indefinitely on one creature at a time, as long as it and the creature under its control remain on the same plane. A mythic vampire using this ability can’t move, but is still aware of its surroundings and can end this ability as a free action.
At 7th rank, a mythic vampire can expend one use of mythic power as an immediate action to gain a f ly speed equal to double its base speed (perfect maneuverability) for 1 hour. When it activates this ability, the vampire chooses whether to manifest bat-like wings or to float unnaturally. If it manifests wings, it gains a bonus on Intimidate checks equal to its rank. If it chooses to float, it gains a bonus on Stealth checks equal to its rank.
At 8th rank, a mythic vampire can expend one use of mythic power when using create spawn to cause the victim to rise as undead in 1 hour instead of 1d4 days. The mythic vampire can expend two uses of mythic power when using create spawn to create a mythic vampire instead of a vampire spawn or non-mythic vampire.
At 9th rank, a mythic vampire can expend two uses of mythic power as a standard action to drain blood from all creatures within 30 feet. Each creature must succeed at a Fortitude saving throw (DC 10 + 1/2 the vampire’s HD + the vampire’s Cha modifier) or be affected by the vampire’s blood drain ability. The mythic vampire gains the normal benefits of all blood drained in this manner.
At 10th rank, a mythic vampire can expend one use of its mythic power to blot out the power of the sun in a 1-mile radius. This entire area is affected by the spell deeper darkness for 1 hour. The mythic vampire’s can see through this darkness.
