Ancient Vampire Symbols

Updated on December 15, 2008

Ancient Vampire Symbols: An Introduction

So, you want to learn about ancient vampire symbols? Well then you've certainly come to the right place. On this site I've compiled a basic history of vampires and a few symbols, plus links to other valuable resources on vampires. The term Vampire originally comes from Slavic origins, from the worth obiri. Eventually, it evolved into today's bulgarian word, "vampir", and from there into the English language as we all know it, "vampire".

A Few Ancient Vampire Symbols/Letters

Ancient Chinese symbols for Vampire.

Japanese characters for vampire
Japanese characters for vampire

Above, we have the chinese characters for vampire, and to the right the japanese characters for vampire. Both of these names are incredibly old, even in these ancient languages. The concept of a vampire is not foreign to either of these cultures.

      a real vampire doesn't reveal. fakes do. codes are important. and telling people is a childish way to get a thrill of a reality they wish was theirs.

      I'm naturally a curious person. I just want to know anything anyone can tell me about vampires and being a vampire. I would never want to become one. I'm just curious as to what is expected of vampires, what they have to do, rules to follow, ect... Can anyone tell me?

      Ok this is just madness. People need to stop bitching about how the want to be like us. Stop. Trust me u wouldn't servive. I am queen selena degos. Queen of all full blood vampires. And ya ya I get it. Everyone wants to be like my uncal dracula but he doesnt like anyone. Is that how u really want to live ur life? Hateing everone? And some of the others on here r right. We r forced to live day to day not knowing wen we might get fresh blood. It may be exstreamly hard to do wat I do but it is still just as hard being a normal vampire on this planet. So for all u humans u should think many times before u say that u want to be like us. U have a choice. Be happy. I didn't. I was born a vampire and I am over 14 thousand years old.

      Oh! This is so sad!!! Will I be the last to comment on here! It took me two hours to read this page and all the posts! My favorite was freakyvamp and shadowhearted and archeron and incubus and lord appolyon and Andremelech(sorry. I know I misspelled it!) When I got to the end and saw that none of you were conversing anymore, it made me sad!!! I'm not sure I believe about the vampire thing, but, I love all things paranormal. I'm writing a few paranormal fictions right now. The Carpathian thing smacks of Christine Feehan's Dark Series, which I LOVE!!! Oh, if it were true! To have a sexy Carpathian warrior and be lifemates!!! But, Alas, I have yet to experience it myself. So, while I love reading this page (even the naysayers were humerous) I am afraid I cannot say I believe in paranormal vampires. But you guys are so sweet and funny and caring. Sorry to see you've all moved on, but hope you all are happy!!! Enjoyed the humor and the drama. Peace out my nizzlefangs!!!

      To most of you on here. Learn to spell and use correct grammar, being illiterate doesn't make you look very convincing. For everyone saying they want to die and life sucks, get over it. And Nargles - most Christians are like that because they fear the unknown, and want to 'control the masses'. Do what you feel is right, don't be brainwashed to other people's beliefs or opinions.

      Being raise in a Christian/ catholic family I do believe in the supernatural. Thing is. I'm supposed to believe they are all evil soulless creatures damned to the pits of hell to burn in purgatory for the rest of eternity. Only I don't. Would I like to be turned??? I'm not sure. I don't think I could leave my family behind. But the supernatural has always called me. I know I have magic in my blood. I've been told by many witches that I have a lot of raw potential. But can I leave all those I love and take a path that in my families eyes will only lead me to hell???

      I think before you go asking to live foreveryou should read what you are writing. Living forever wont solve any of you problems. Chances are if life sucks for you now than it will suck even more to lie forever. You think its all perfect to be a vampyre but it is a curse, its not made to be enjoyable. There is alway going to be a reason that life gets you down and living forever wont slove that.

      Such imbeciles, mornonic idiots commenting on this article, claiming to be vampires yet, they can't even spell a simple word like 'legit' the correct way or even spell 'our' instead of 'are'. I suggest you mindless masses learn how to write correct English before you claim to be vampires. P.S ...Vampires never go online and announce themselves in public for no specific reason and they especially do not spell like Kindergardener's...how lame and pathetic can you be.

      To luke 231

      I'm sorry to say that but vampire who are supposly weak with silver and sun is rubbish a lot, they do not die from sun and they have no weaks with silver, garlics and anything. Vampires doesn't want the humans to know because it is that way that all, they don't want to make humans to believe they're existance cause it would make just too much trouble for them. They have something more to do then killing people and all stuff.

      i believe in vampires exist but why make it up, who would think of it vampires who cant deal with sun light and silver who would just think that on the top of there head unless they do exist but keep it hidden so thats why they make films of it to make us believe in just films not real life.

      my own opinion is they do exist but we will never no 4 sure

      Vampire is a disease not a power, you thirst for blood uncontrollably and whatever abilities you've learned you have always had. You do not live forever, in fact you die much quicker. It is not something any human should want.

      Everybody can believe what they want to believe. Nobody is stopping you from believing, but nobody is making you believe, so to all of the believers out there; do what you want to do, and for all of the non-believers; Just because you don't believe, doesn't mean you have rights to "bash" the believers. I am not going to say I believe or not, I am just putting that out there. Plus, if you don't believe then why post on a website such as this one? I came looking for ancient symbols for a school project. I am only posting this to try and keep peace. Okay? End of story. (( Sorry if I ruined your glorious day with one little post you will probably never read again. If this made your day better, then you are welcome. :] ))

      To Jade

      Vampires have different races: a lot diffenrent races arent immortals, few of them could live many years longer and the rares ones could be immortals. But they could be only 10% to 20% immortals then the rest of the other races. Why this question? If I had a chance to be immortal, I will never except such a gift. Seeing all the people you loved, born, growing and dying every long years passed, Would turn your life into depression and sadness... Being vampire looks very awesome and all but it could destroy everything you loved, wanted and dreamed the most. Even for a women turned into a vampire could never get pregnant.

      ok, so i see alot of interest in vampires.... trust me, the thirst and rage alone are not things to take lightly. you may think that you will be able to control it quickly, it takes years of intense training. So before you guys go calling out real vampires to change you, i would highly reccomend taking a few months atleast to think about it, remember. theres a good chance they may say they will change you but in the end they could simply use you as a snack.

      honestly i dont think any of you believe what your typing. you all wish they were real but ultimatly dont believe and those retards who say their vampires shut up if you were really a vampire you wouldnt shout it to the world on the internet for fear of being hunted, if you ARE a vampire commenting and saying your a vamp then your still an idiot. i no their real, ya i want to be one however i learn about them ive read 13 different sites about docummented of vampires i dont look for nor plan to look for them. they have hidden for thousands of years and will hide for thousands more. people arnt ready and i doubt they'll ever be (including me for those who i no will ask) theres no reason to come out now espically with all the stupid tv shows and movies like twilight that makes them glorified murders and lovelorn freaks. so let it go for gods sake ................. see what i did there xp (srry had to releive the tension, but im completely serious and this is alot longer than i planed :/)

      Oh oh what an insult "Ruby". If vampires exist why is there some pathetic humans knowing that they exist when they are not suppose to believe that they are real. They keep they're secrets and still people believe without seeing one in real life but only in movies that doesn't make sense at all. I won't shut my big mouth for you just because you think I am treating you like a crazy person. Yeah you sound crazy in front of everyone if you say that vampire exist. So what if they exist? Get over it okay it is really annoying that human is beggin for getting change into a creature that they still doesn't know at all about it and what it do. So stop pretend to be a "vampire" if you don't know a lot about them, OTAKU.

We are humans who is living in a planet name the earth. Only animals and humans live there and you have no proof that other creatures then us exist on this little bity myni planet. Seriously you guys are crazy to thing like that. NOT because they are movies like dracula or twilight that means that they exist, it is just a movie, a story invented by a simple human.

      Nevermore 5 years ago

      Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,

      Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,

      While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,

      As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.

      `'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -

      Only this, and nothing more.'

      Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,

      And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.

      Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow

      From my books surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost Lenore -

      For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels named Lenore -

      Nameless here for evermore.

      And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain

      Thrilled me - filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;

      So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating

      `'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door -

      Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door; -

      This it is, and nothing more,'

      Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,

      `Sir,' said I, `or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;

      But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came rapping,

      And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,

      That I scarce was sure I heard you' - here I opened wide the door; -

      Darkness there, and nothing more.

      Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,

      Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;

      But the silence was unbroken, and the darkness gave no token,

      And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, `Lenore!'

      This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, `Lenore!'

      Merely this and nothing more.

      Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,

      Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.

      `Surely,' said I, `surely that is something at my window lattice;

      Let me see then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore -

      Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore; -

      'Tis the wind and nothing more!'

      Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,

      In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore.

      Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;

      But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door -

      Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door -

      Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

      Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,

      By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,

      `Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,' I said, `art sure no craven.

      Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore -

      Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!'

      Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

      Much I marvelled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly,

      Though its answer little meaning - little relevancy bore;

      For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being

      Ever yet was blessed with seeing bird above his chamber door -

      Bird or beast above the sculptured bust above his chamber door,

      With such name as `Nevermore.'

      But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only,

      That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.

      Nothing further then he uttered - not a feather then he fluttered -

      Till I scarcely more than muttered `Other friends have flown before -

      On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before.'

      Then the bird said, `Nevermore.'

      Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,

      `Doubtless,' said I, `what it utters is its only stock and store,

      Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful disaster

      Followed fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore -

      Till the dirges of his hope that melancholy burden bore

      Of "Never-nevermore."'

      But the raven still beguiling all my sad soul into smiling,

      Straight I wheeled a cushioned seat in front of bird and bust and door;

      Then, upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking

      Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore -

      What this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore

      Meant in croaking `Nevermore.'

      This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing

      To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom's core;

      This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining

      On the cushion's velvet lining that the lamp-light gloated o'er,

      But whose velvet violet lining with the lamp-light gloating o'er,

      She shall press, ah, nevermore!

      Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer

      Swung by Seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor.

      `Wretch,' I cried, `thy God hath lent thee - by these angels he has sent thee

      Respite - respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore!

      Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe, and forget this lost Lenore!'

      Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

      `Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil! -

      Whether tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,

      Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted -

      On this home by horror haunted - tell me truly, I implore -

      Is there - is there balm in Gilead? - tell me - tell me, I implore!'

      Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

      `Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil!

      By that Heaven that bends above us - by that God we both adore -

      Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn,

      It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels named Lenore -

      Clasp a rare and radiant maiden, whom the angels named Lenore?'

      Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

      `Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!' I shrieked upstarting -

      `Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore!

      Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!

      Leave my loneliness unbroken! - quit the bust above my door!

      Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!'

      Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

      And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting

      On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;

      And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,

      And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;

      And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor

      Shall be lifted - nevermore!

      Thought i'd share this poem, by Edgar Allan Poe, what are some of your favourite poems?

      I never made any claim to be a vampire. I am something else completely irrelevant to this conversation. I eat the same things you do, I imagine.In fact, I have an affinity toward pizza. And as for remaining secretive, The more people see them in movies and books, the more that believe them to be nothing more than fiction. Do you understand? Why broadcast something that should remain secret if it's real? Humans disbelieve and fear that which they don't understand. It is so easy to remain in the shadows, figuratively, if one is hiding in plain sight. It's easier to hide in this day and age while in earlier times it was not. Computers and technology make it so simple to simply change identity when it becomes time to move on.

      I don't know about any movie or book that you're making, but I do know this much. The one Law that all hold to is the matter of secrecy. Humans MUST believe that they aren't real. That monsters are imaginary. The more terrible they seem, the less people will believe. Understand? From what I have seen, there are many breeds of vampires. Each with their own set of strengths and weaknesses. Some breed overlap in their abilities and weaknesses, but they never have the exact same of everything. Vampires are some of the most arrogant creatures that I have ever met. Each breed believes themselves to be the only one out there. Very few actually believe in another. Some are governed by some type of a council or royalty, while others simply govern each other. As I stated, The main Law that they observe would be to keep their Silence and anonymity. Though, some may have other lower laws. Some breeds are solitary, while others prefer to live in groups. There are the typical vampires that feed on blood. Others feed on human souls. Others feed of the life force, while still others feed on youth causing a mortal to age and die anywhere from a few seconds to minutes. I hope this was helpful to you.

      Anytime, Shalimar... and ihatevamphunters? I don't think anyone really cares if you are only twelve, or if you "still remember what it is like to be human." You should  still have a certain degree of maturity.

       Perhaps  the best course of action you can take is to leave the conversation and take your worries somewhere else, or learn to keep them to yourself.

      Azumi 5 years ago

      I do believe Shalimar means your arguments about if Vampires are real, what their opinions on humankind are and the matter of those wishing to be turned are rather petty and self-centered. Your wish to justify yourselves... Only further details the fact you have rather youthful mindsets...
