Vryloka are a race of former humans who forged a pact with the Red Witch to take on vampyric qualities. Family ties are extremely important for vyloka, and they will go out of their way to help anyone from the same bloodline. Despite their connection to vampires, they detest actual vampires because they seek eternal life, not the empty shell of an undead existence. Any vryloka who becomes a vampire is either forced into exile or executed by his family to maintain their pride.
Vryloka keep secret societies where they attempt to influence others through power games. The vrylokas' patience can cause this manipulation to last for decades or more. One such society is The Order of the Crimson Rose.
