VAMPIRE

Appearance

Perfect beauty. Considered to be astonishingly beautiful and physically perfect in every way.

Diet

Only blood. You find the idea of eating human food the equivalent of a human wanting to eat dirt. To you, blood is 10,000 times better than your favorite food and wine combined. Your sense of smell allows you to smell what a person's blood type is. And different blood types have different tastes(A, B, AB, and O). And each person's blood is a unique type of blood that taste's like noone else's blood. Thus, blood is an endless supply and variety of food for you. You can survive off of animal blood, but it's like tofu-it keeps you alive, but it's not fully satisfying(you strongly prefer human blood).

Lycan 
It would be cool to control my aging process. It would get kind of boring looking like the same 19 year old for thousands of years. If I were a lycan I could stay '19' for a while, age to my mid twenties, stay there for a while and so on. 
Plus I still get pizza

Good point. I change my mind. Lycan's are entirely uninteresting with the exception of their options for diet.

vampire because they are stronger than van helsing lycans but if a have to chose between a vampire or a lycan from underworld i would chose a lycan

#31 Posted by kajitatsu (532 posts) - - Show Bio

Lycan. I like the versatility they have; wolf-like senses would be helpful (smell and hearing). Being a human with more strength, speed and durability is basically a free pass for blending in but playing dog would be fun too. Vampires suck haha, I don't like that having to take from people or missing out on the warmth of the sun.

does the van helsing wolf have enhanced senses while in human form? i can't remember, i know the underwold lycans do... 
 
Also, i change my previous answer (again) back to vampire, werewolves tend to lose their clothes when they change..i dont wanna have to wake up naked in a field somewhere
#35 Edited by majestic99 (8638 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Stegman: Yes. In the movie at some point he was easily able to carry the two main supporting characters(can't remember their names at this point) while running up a wall.

To the phasing: 1. You change at will

2. When Van Helsing changed he wasn't completely naked.

@majestic99: oh cool, haven't seen that movie in ages, but yeah, if i recall he lost at least his shirt...and the transformation (in any werewolf lore regardless) looked quite painful, the only downside i'm seeing in being a vampire is lack of sunlight...and i like the night better anyway, soooo yeah, put me on team Fang

That is fine. But for me, it just is one other "benefit" I am uninterested in as far as I am concerned with Lycans.

@The Stegman: I've noticed there aren't that many pro-lycan films(I mean that a lycan is the main character or shown as superior to vampires):Underworld,Blade,Twilight,Vampire Diaries, every show/film seeems to always be focused more so on vampires.

@Erik: I'm guessing since you picked vampires you can deal with the lack of sunlight.

#42 Posted by The Stegman (23033 posts) - - Show Bio
@majestic99: yeah i think it's because America is so obsessed with vampires, the idea of being one...or in some horrible cases, falling in love with one, is very appealing to audiences, Underworld Rise of the Lycans /tried/ to show the good side of werewolves..and did a decent job, but yeah, i don't think they will ever be as appealing as vampires.

@OblivionKnight: In the Van Helsing film, Van Helsing was able to run up a wall while carrying two people at the same time while in human form with no problem at all.

For me, lycans all day,every day. I wouldn't be able to stand having to give up sunlight and food for an eternity. That would be unbearable.
