"V" is a street drug derived from vampire blood. It is highly illegal to human and vampire law. Humans treat it like any controlled substance, but vampire consider it a travesty to their kind and will use their own vigilantism to killed human users and willing vampire suppliers of the drug.Vampire blood straight from the source gives humans the healing and powers of a vampire on a smaller scale. It also bonds the human and vampire mentally. This will cause the human to have sexual dreams about the vampire. This is common knowledge and there are people who process vampire blood to sell as "V."As a drug, "V" lacks the direct connection to the vampire of origin though the user may feel some "understanding" of who it came from. And while vampire blood gives a fraction of power to a human, the drug "V" only gives even a fraction of that.
