What is a Day Walker?
Within my world of the paranormal there are two species of vampires. The Day Walkers and the Night Stalkers. Our story is that of Claire, a young girl who at the eve of her senior year is transformed into a vampire. She awakes a Day Stalker, an almost superhero being. She has all the great abilities of a vampire, speed, strength, eternal youth but with none of the draw backs. A day walker is much more calm than their Night Stalker counterparts. Although they survive on blood the addiction is not there and they may go several weeks, even months if need be without drinking, with little to no side effects. They are capable of walking in the sun light as well, an ability that all night stalker’s wish to possess. Any Day Walker is easy prey to a Night Stalker, although faster, and stronger than any one Night Stalker the Day Walker’s are few and a dying breed usually taken over by the sheer numbers of Night Stalkers.
What is a Night Stalker?
The night stalker’s are the typical kind of vampire we see in most every telling. They can only emerge in the night as they are “allergic” to the sun’s rays. They are bloodthirsty animals who will stop at nothing to quench their evil thirst. Their ultimate goal is to become a day walker, they believe that if they had the ability to walk in the day light they could dominate the world.
My novels look at the relationships between these two species of vampires, one in particular. Claire, or Claire Bear as she is known finds herself way over her head when a friend of hers drags her to a feeding. Cowering in a room she is found by a vampire and turned. If her problems weren’t big enough, as soon as she emerges from her change Claire realizes she is a Day Walker and in a great deal of trouble.
