The main reason real vampirism is not more widely believed is the failure of the general public to understand exactly what the virus which produces the condition actually is, or how it functions. Most people do not understand, or believe, that human DNA can be altered in such a way as to produce such a being.

Actually, many things can alter a person's normal DNA. Drugs such as LSD and Thalidomide cause DNA changes and many viruses can change the DNA in a single gene. A combination of these altered genes can change the over all DNA of a living human.

The term 'vampire' as used on this site as a medical term, must be separated from the vampire myths. A Viral Vampire is an infected human. Though the DNA in the host human has been greatly altered, the organism remains human in the medical sense as the number of chromosomes has not been changed.

All humans, in fact the entire human race, have the same number of chromosomes. The number of chromosomes is what makes them human (except for those born with Down's Syndrome. These people have an extra chromosome but are, of course, human).

Technically the vampire is still a human, but for sake of discussion we think of viral vampires as non-human or as the next step up in human evolution. This is difficult to believe because many of the attributes of a vampire are, well, considered to be better and more developed than humans'. The strength, speed, enhanced mental and/or psychic abilities, the ability to digest human and other blood more efficiently are but a few of the differences. The reason this happens is the basic human DNA is altered by the virus. The virus, we call it V5 is NOT the same virus as HIV5. To simplify, it is transmitted through a simple infection.

This infection is gained either through birth or infection from one who has the virus and passes it on. The child inherits the infection, passed on from the mother or father. The parent may have picked up the virus from some other member of their family such as a cousin, aunt, brother, etc., and thus the infection is passed on to the newborn child. Rarely are both parents infected, i.e., vampires themselves. More often, they are carriers of the virus, in a similar manner to the way a red haired child is born to a family who, for several generations, have been all blond.

The passing of the virus to the child from the parent produces an Inheritor Vampire child. The V5 is passed on to the newborn much the same way the AIDS virus is passed from mother to child. In such a child, the virus remains dormant until the catalyst of the onset of puberty. The release of hormones is believed to activate the virus system.

The effects of the V5 virus then takes a number of years, as the child develops, to be completely effective, i.e., active in the system from its previously dormant state in the child's body. As in any infection, the child's immune system tries to fight off the infection, and in many cases, if not most, it succeeds. It is also believed that the blood chemical make up of the individual is also responsible in determining if the child will be fully affected by the virus and thus DNA altered. Not all infected people develop the vampire virus, V5, and thus not everyone born with it becomes a vampire.

That is why we are not hip deep in real Inheritor vampires. The only other way to become a vampire is to be given the infection by someone already infected. This would make the person, the subject, a Classical. As with Inheritors, it takes Classicals quite a long time to develop the full blown virus once infected due to the same reasons; blood chemistry make up and the immune system. Also, not everyone who is exposed to the virus by a Classical will be a viable host for the virus.

There is also a theory that a person has to be genetically predisposed to V5.

V5 is actually closely related to many other viruses such as the common flu virus and the AIDS virus. V5 is not the AIDS virus but works in much the same way as to infecting the host. Another reason the reality and cause of vampirism in today's modern world is not more widely believed is because not many members of the public or medical establishment know of the existence of V5.

Why don't they know of it? Because, like Ebola and other new illnesses such as the Flesh Eating Bacteria, which actually have not been named so far, as we do not know what they are as of this date. V5 has only been known for a relatively short time, many years to be sure, but in regard to other illnesses, a short time.

It has been many, many years now that several doctors in different parts of the USA and Europe have known about and been studying the V5 virus and its victims. The studies have been accomplished by long range, personal, one to one research with these infected people.

Why so secretive?

The same reason as with any other discovery. Once released, the doctors and researchers will gain money, fame and reputation. Not to mention grants, and the licensing of new drugs, etc. For the past few years, ImortalN and I have been telling people of the existence of the virus and explaining the ''what and why'' of this illness. We have compared it to other historical illnesses believed to be the cause of vampires in the past.

A few years ago, it was discovered that V5 is related to the AIDS virus. We began telling people then of an impending break through in a vaccine for AIDS. A vaccine for AIDS, discovered from the link to the vampire virus. During the month of June 1998, both NBC and ABC first gave the announcement of a new AIDS vaccine in development.

Just prior to that was released the news announcing a gene, newly discovered, that lengthened the life of a fruit fly by twice its normal life span. OK, laugh. It does sound funny, but it is most important. That gene, in an insect, was gained from gene mapping, isolating, and gene construction, and the same is possible and already being done with humans.


The V5 is accessed because of a special and rare gene some people have and which can be passed on through or by infection into a host. Next there will be further announcements of the life extension program already in effect for humans. Soon to follow, other announcements about gene splicing, genetic engineering and gene manipulation which had already been performed on lesser animals.

The DNA of a jellyfish were implanted into developing mouse embryos. The result? The unification of 2 non-related creatures which resulted in a litter of healthy mice, which actually glowed in the dark, the way a jellyfish glows in the darkness of the depths of the sea. Just 'Google' mice jellyfish. That's all you have to enter, two words, mice jellyfish, (don't use quotation marks) and click search, you'll find the articles! No one believes me when I say these things but they are true.

Genetic mapping, and genetic coding of viruses will explain the V5 more fully to those not knowledgeable in medical or genetic terminology. Discovery of the V5 will make a huge difference when formally announced.

Think for a moment what the full impact of such ramifications would mean.


What would happen to the nation's, to the world's, population if vampires were proven to be real? Real, but not at all like the myths or legends.

First the fear. Vampires are stronger, faster, etc. They could easily take jobs. They tend to be smarter and more mentally adept, more psychic. Could they then dominate and control normal humans?

The hatred. Humans cannot even live with their own kind in peace. How can they live with actual vampires?

The envy, Vampires live longer, stay young looking longer. How many normal people would want to be able to do the same?

Population. So many of them and they live longer. Less housing, less food and what else would they use longer than normal people?

And what about the religious issues? The old church views are that all vampires are evil or in league with evil. How many righteous people would like to see them dead? How many hunters would like to see them dead? (See Real Hunters link elsewhere on this site)

The government would want them for soldiers and laborers and so would other countries. Not to mention forcibly studying them like lab animals.

What about the vampire himself/herself? Their safety gone, they are exposed, people who fear, hate or admire them, and all now know the vampire truly exists.

How does society cope with something that it has been told for a millennium does not exist?

How does the world establishment tell the populous of the existence of something believed to be myth and evil?


How does one go about integrating a newly identified species into the human community?

Very, very slowly and carefully.



To understand how DNA is altered by virus, we shall now look at normal genetic coding. I apologize that there is no way to really simplify this.

Genetic code. The ability to use more than one codon to specify a particular amino acid requires many different (mRNA) as many amino acids as there are triplets. The corresponding number of codon synonyms and (tRNA) results in the correspondence in (mRNA) transcription. The attraction between the (tRNA) and the triplets of the (mRNA) depends on the corresponding codon and the anticodon. The degeneration of the code has a pattern for all amino acids that have 2, 3, or 4 synonyms for the first 2 bases, one or more triplets.

There may be a question as to where the triplets overlap.

Example: a sequence of AUGGUGG Where a non overlapping code 2 amino acids, methioine (AUG) and prypothan (UGG) or could this really be 4 amino acids? Methioine (AUG), cysteiniel (UGU), valine (GUG), and tryptophaine (UGG)? Really bad problems can come from over lapping sequence AAU and AAC which may then read as AAUAAAC. This code could not be followed by methioine because the overlapping codon which resets UGA is a terminator codon.

It was once believed that any one particular codon that specified an amino acid meant the same acid in all organisms. But it has been noted that there are exceptions in humans; to note these exceptions, go to the genetic code. Each (tRNA) molecule has 2 important functions.

1.To attach itself to a certain amino acid

2.To place the acid in its proper place in the protein.
To do both jobs a sort of relocation site must exist in the (tRNA). The anticodon is the compliment of a certain messenger in the (mRNA).

Before you can understand what the vampire virus is and how it works, it is necessary to understand a bit of genetics and virus in general.


Because the vampire virus is closely related to, or you might say a cousin to, both the flu and the AIDS virus or to more properly say, related to the virus which goes on to cause HIV in humans. This statement simply means V5 is a retro-virus. The things which makes it so difficult to believe, and in fact is why most cannot believe in the existence of the vampire virus, is the lack of general understanding of how the v-virus can and does alter the human DNA to permit the vampire symptoms and maladies to take effect on the once human body. Most people do not believe the human DNA can be so drastically altered.

This is a strange problem, since all retro viruses (except for perhaps some bacteria which are, of course, not viruses) and one form of RNA, viruses do most commonly change the cell DNA and take over the individual cell's original DNA. It commonly occurs in the flu virus and in the HIV virus, both of which are related to the V5 virus.

To better understand how this virus works and how genetics plays a part in the inherited factors, we must first look at the basics of human genetic coding and regular and retro viruses.

Those of you who have already had this in class, will see this is basic text book stuff found in any source for the study of genes or genetic coding. You have already read the above basics of genetic coding and how important the sequence of amino acids and bases are to the virus and its function in a cell.


Genetic coding is the means by which hereditary traits are passed from one human, or other species, on to another of its own kind in birth. Genetic code is the exact chemical equation by which the information making heredity is passed on from the genes to the proteins such as hemoglobin or pepsin. These and other proteins are the ladder which structures the human body. Enliens, pollypeptides, and hormones all serve to regulate these chemical reactions in the body. Chromosomes are located in the Nucleic Acids.

The DNA or RNA of each Gene is responsible for making the Protein involved in the development of each trait. Species allow Genes to have the same effect on all its members in the same manner and so effect all its members from generation to generation of that species.

The codon is the main unit. The Codon is involved with the structure of nucleic acid. Both DNA and RNA are composed of a special sequence of individual units called nucleotides. Each nucleotide consists of three smaller units, a phosphate, a slayer, (No not THAT kind of 'slayer') and a base.


There are 4 types of Base in DNA. Adenine, Guanine, Cytosine are double rings called PURINES and the last component Thymine, is a single ring component called Pyrimidines in RNA. Uracilis is pyrimidine in RNA, wherever Thymine would be found in DNA. The key is the bases, and how they are arranged, and in which sequence in a chain of single strand of (rnRNA) or DNA.

There are 20 different amino acids in proteins but only 4 bases. Nucleotide bases that is. This provides for 4x4x4 different and specific bases, 64 codons. There are more combinations actually but these are all we need to look at right now to realize the structure can be greatly varied as to acids and bases. With the exception of 3 of the 64 codons, each specifies one of the 20 amino acids in the proteins.

Most acids have more than one codon but some have triplets as we have previously seen. The codons which specify are known as the synonyms for the amino acid. During the bonding the protein transfers to the genes the information. This occurs in 2 parts, transcription and translation. The transcription acts as the triplet on which the RNA pollynuecliotide chain, called the messenger RNA (mRNA).


The messenger carries the genetic code from the acids to the cell's nucleus, to the nucleus of the ribosomes in the cytoplasms of the cell. During the transcription (mRNA) is attached to the ribosomes which are sections of three actual proteins. (mRNA) CODON determines the sequence of amino acid in the protein. Synthesis each acid is connected to the ribosomes molecule of transcription. (tRNA) which has, in its nucleus, a sequence of three nucleotide bases. Contained in an anticodon, and is complementary to a particular codon in the (tRNA). An attraction hydrogen binding helps alter the RNA and (mRNA). During this bonding a particular amino acid is transferred to the polypeptide chain.

Doctors originally thought that only one strand, the sense strand, of a double strand DNA contained the actual gene transcription into the RNA directly. The other strand, the antisense strand, was believed to function only as a replication. But this has now changed. It has since been learned that in some cases both strands are transcribed. This is considered a newer break through, something not known a number of years ago. Whichever antisense RNA is transcribed into protein or remains as RNA and may be a regulator to the sequence.

This is believed but has not been officially established.

In order for the Acid chain to be divided into sequence, each has to have a specific message signal showing the beginning and end of each sequence. (mRNA) contains a special codon at both ends of this message, one that initiates and one that ends the transcription of the Code. The triplet for the methioine (AUG) is the initiator codon for the protein synthesis. When first formed, polypeptide chains have methinomine as the first amino acid.

During the transcription process or after the protein chain is completed some changes are usually made by the cellular entyines, and these form the foundation protein. One of these changes is sometimes the removal of methioine. There are 2 types of cells, eukarotic and prorkryotic. The difference is prorkryotic cells don't have a nucleus and rarely have a membrane. Both have DNA codons called nonsense codons such as UAA, UAG, or UGA ... carry anticodons and cannot be transcribed. (mRNA) codon is found in the messenger.


A virus is a living organism, a life form.

It invades and takes over human cells. The virus invades a cell, kills it or changes the DNA of that cell and replaces the uninfected cells with replications of its own kind. As it replaces the normal cells or changes the DNA in the existing cell, it takes over the function of that cell. The body fights to kill or destroy these cells, if it fails the body can become ill and eventually die from this invasion, called an infection.

There are 2 kinds of viruses, virus and retrovirus. A retrovirus stores genetic material as RNA instead of DNA in the cells.

Remember that the flu is a virus which contains itself in a protein sphere, waiting for its release when you are more likely to be more confined in the winter months. In the summer although, the flu is also susceptible but one is more likely to be out in the open and less likely to be confined in an area. Thus, spread of this virus through coughing, nasal spray, and contact is more likely during the winter.

In a retrovirus mainly the genetic material RNA is incorporated into the host cell. Then the virus takes over the function of the cell and in many cases changes or alters the DNA of the host cell while replicating itself. Each time the host cell divides it makes an exact and complete new copy of the new DNA along with its own genes. There are hundreds of viruses, the common flu is a virus as is HIV and LAV which are cousins to the v-virus but manufactures itself in much the same way.


Human Immune Deficiency Virus (HIV) is a retrovirus.

A type of a virus that stores genetic information as RNA rather than as DNA. When the virus enters a targeted host cell, it releases its RNA and then makes DNA using the viral RNA as a pattern. The viral DNA then is incorporated into the host cell DNA. Each time a host cell divides, it also makes a new copy of the integrated viral DNA along with its own genes. The viral DNA can take over the functions of the cell, become activated, causing the cell to produce new virus particles.

These new viruses are released from the infected cell to invade other cells. The DNA and RNA factor is the difference between the retrovirus and virus. The vampire virus works in much the same way but does not go on to destroy the immune system. Instead it is coded to replace regular genetic material and alter it in such a way as to cause physical changes in the actual function of several aspects of the human body such as in digestion, slower aging, increased physical strength, mental capacity, etc.

The Genetic Code has certain characteristics which determine how and under what conditions coding is to be read. The sequence of a nucleotide base is to be read in certain sequences which show the determination of the formations of the cell. Most amino acids in proteins- and there are over 20 of them- have at least 2 codons, however some have as many as 6.

In a situation in which 2 or more codon words have the same meaning is called a degenerative code. The ability to use more than one codon to specify a particular amino acid requires many different (tRNA) as many amino acids as there are triplets. The correspondents of the number of codons synonyms and (tRNA) results in the correspondence in (mRNA ) transcription. The attraction between the (tRNA) and the triplets of the (mRNA) depends on the correspondents codon and the anticodon. The degeneration of the code has a pattern for all amino acids that have 2, 3, or 4 synonyms for the first 2 bases one or more triplets.


In Summary
Genetic coding is the means by which heredity is passed from one human species to another member of that species or any Species in fact. Genetic code is the exact chemical equation by which the information making heredity is passed on from the genes to the proteins such as hemoglobin or pepsin.

These and other proteins are the ladder which structures the human body. Enliens and pollypeptides, hormones, regulate these chemical reactions in the body. To understand more of how V5 acts to change the human cell structure in the human body we need to remember just how HIV works on the body. The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a retrovirus, a type of virus that stores genetic information as RNA rather than as DNA. When the virus enters a targeted host cell, it releases its RNA and then makes DNA using the viral RNA as a pattern. The viral DNA then is incorporated into the host cell DNA.

Each time a host cell divides, it also makes a new copy of the integrated viral DNA along with its own genes. The viral DNA can take over the functions of the cell, become activated, causing the cell to produce new virus particles. These new viruses are released from the infected cell to invade other cells. The DNA and RNA factor is the difference between the retrovirus and virus. In a similar manner does V5 also slowly take over the function of the cells while replicating itself. Definition: similarly affect the cell DNA of the infected vampire.


The medical and scientific community will make slowly released announcements in approximately the following order. Release to the general public announcements which have already been made on the TV show nova regarding gene mapping, gene splicing.

Then the release of a newly discovered or mapped gene found to prolong life, a prelude to this announcement was just accomplished on NBC and ABC recent television broadcasts.

Next announcements on a human life extension program, which it has already done but taking another direction as can be found in the site links elsewhere on the main page of this site. The announcement of a vaccine- not a cure- but a prevention of AIDS, which was released on NBC and ABC in June 1998.

Next shall come the announcement of the newly discovered virus which in itself lead to the Aids / HIV Vaccine. And then the announcement of the V5 virus itself. Then finally how V5 lead to the break through for HIV cure and then how the research was actually conducted. Finally telling the world about those people the research was conducted upon. Those actual, living, genuine vampires.

To get the proof you all seek so desperately all you need do is wait for this time line to play itself out. Its that simple.

How long will all this take? I do not know.


Now how does all this relate to the prophecies?

(See the Prophecies link at the bottom of this page. #16)
As you read over the prophecies, think of what happens if the vampires do not want this information getting out. Suppose there is a differing of opinion in the overall world wide vampire communities; for the sake of discussion lets say 50 percent of the vampire population felt this information should not be released as the end result would inevitably lead to a vaccine for V5 as well as Aids. If this occurred what could it mean to the vampiric world?

The vaccine I speak of is NOT the HIV vaccine, or the segment known as HIV5, but could be produced as a derivative of the same.

1. A vaccine, used as part of an Aids preventive, will one day be given to all children under the age of five probably included in their normal childhood shots.
These human children grow into adults and some will become volunteers for vampire feeding.

The vampires who feed upon this blood ingest the antibodies for the V5 as well since V5 was used in its manufacture. Or that there is also simply a vaccine for V5 given to all children to prevent their being infected once it is believed and understood that real and actual vampires exist. Now the vampire ingests this medically treated blood and the antibodies in the volunteers blood begins to activate on the vampire. If his/her DNA is altogether changed, it is only the virus taking over the cell functions which is keeping it alive.

To destroy that virus at this stage, or for the vaccine to affect the vampire DNA at a later date, could mean killing the V5, hence killing the host, death to the vampire itself.

With the general population so vaccinated there is much less of a food source for the vampire and competition for the remaining available unvaccinated humans becomes fierce.

2. The information about the vampire can also lead to hunters making weapons to kill the vampire more easily and efficiently. Why then would a vampire want this information to go to the general public?
Considering how easily and frequently viruses mutate, without a cure for AIDS, in very little relative time many, many millions of humans will die, disturbing the balance of nature. Both their own relation to the environment and the human balance relation to the vampire.

Many vampires feel this natural balance should not be altered, It is a prevailing belief that humans must be saved to preserve the natural balance and order of the planet and therefore it is most necessary to help cure AIDS.

Many vampires feel it is inevitable that humans will one day find the vampire virus and thus a vaccine for it. It is the hope of the vampires that human kind can be taught to coexist and in so doing may find a way to help the vampire survive.

On one hand we have those who wish no knowledge given out. Let the humans die of AIDS or anything else, it is natural selection. Then there are the others. 'NO! we must preserve the natural balance at all costs.'

Now reread the prophecies, perhaps they will now make more sense to you. The truth is vampires are indeed real, they are a product of an ages old inherited virus which alters DNA and creates the differences. These kinds and type of genetically caused illnesses are well known today and new viruses are being discovered all the time.


V5 is an ancient illness only now coming into the light of modern day. Its form and reasons are simple and easily understood by anyone with an open mind and willingness to wait for the medical proof to be announced. It will indeed be made known and no doubt disputed at first.
But, in the end, the vampire will be nearly as common as the human.
The new question then being, if the human cannot live peaceably with its own kind how can there be the needed balance between the human and vampire?
And will either species allow the other to exist at all?


There are many claims that V5 is bogus and part of the plot of a British TV series called Ultra Violet which was aired in both Britain and the United States via the SciFi Channel. The problem is, V5 has either coincidentally or purposefully been lumped in to a series of fictional viruses and illnesses.

The retro-virus I write about is commonly known as V5 (pronounced 'VEE FIVE'), it is NOT Code V (on the TV show it is pronounced Code 'FIVE' not Code 'vee'), K-17, G-17, or Stem Alpha. These are names of fictitious virus and bacterial infections. I don't know where these other names came from. K-17 is the name of the bacterial infection used as a fictional plot device in the British TV show called 'Ultraviolet'. The actual name of the V5 virus is not publicly known and is difficult to pronounce. V5 is what it has been commonly called since at least 1985, prior to the creation of the show 'Ultraviolet' in 1998.

Did it ever occur to anyone that the TV show 'Ultraviolet' took the idea of an infection and the information available on the Internet about a real virus, changed it from a virus to a fictitious bacterial infection and based their plot device loosely on that, plus the use of ultraviolet light to kill vampires? Which was also used years ago in a film about vampires based in Mexico. Neither 'Ultraviolet' nor viruses are new to vampire fiction.

According to a BBC web site 'Ultraviolet' is a fictional miniseries. Here's a brief quote of what the site says.

"Ultraviolet is a stylish, modern thriller set in London in the 20th Century, where a secret war is being waged between humans and vampires. It was released by Channel 4 in the UK in 1998."

The words Code V1, or just plain Code V, (This would be pronounced 'CODE FIVE1 or just CODE FIVE not CODE 'VEE') are used on the show to designate vampires or anything having to do with vampires. It does not, I repeat, NOT have anything to do with an infectious virus and is not the name of the bacterial infection in the TV show that made the vampires ... vampires. That is K-17.

The author of the Code V (CODE FIVE) site in question, does not give his name, does not give the web master's name and does not have an email address or phone number listed for questions or further information. All there is, is a Guestbook with questions and remarks. To my knowledge, none of them are privately answered. Someone I do not know, asked within the pages of that Guestbook if my site was a hoax due to the term V5 and the fact that I give medical information. The CODE FIVE site states that many sites went up and listed Code V (CODE FIVE) and K-17 as being real and publishing a lot of the copywritten fictional medical information claiming it all was real. This person's CODE V site states all those sites were closed down by the producers of the TV show 'Ultraviolet'. My site, which is known as, VampiricStudies, and NOT to be confused with the CODE FIVE site, has medical information. Because of this, some woman mentions my site in the Guestbook and asks if it is one of the hoax sites. No response was given to her publicly in the Guestbook.

I know this is very confusing. Between Code V (CODE FIVE) and V5 (VEE 5). This is because the TV show uses the Roman Numeral V which means 'five' as in CODE FIVE -not Code V. My site states the virus designation as V5 which means the letter V as in Victor - the alphabetic V and the number 5. Gosh, it's even confusing me!! LOL. If all this is giving you a headache, just remember V5 is a virus, Code FIVE written as Code V is the fiction. V5 is not a hoax.

Either it's purely coincidence or they purposefully took information that was available 13 years before they wrote 'Ultraviolet' and changed it a little. You can believe what you want to believe but V5 (VEE 5) exists. It is real, it is not a hoax. I've added a site URL to this notice where you can go and read about the show 'Ultraviolet' 43

The first of the sites to claim V5 was a hoax appeared a few years ago. It was allegedly written by someone who claims to have been part of the production company of UltraViolet. The site itself is very well done and believable. However, it is not written by anyone connected with that TV show. It was written by a woman in the United States, who lumped all those other fictional names together, then added the actual V5. The other sites that took up the claim of hoax were all primarily based on this one site. And, as you will see, it is not the site which I have given you from the BBC. I would give you the URL for the other site but I can no longer find it.

I believe one of the readers of my site said it best when she said. ''Regardless if its called V5 or 'Fruity Slurpie 7' its still the virus''
