Q
How can Vampires be hurt and killed?
A
Vampires refer to their own destructions as "the true death". This can happen by a wooden stake through the heart, beheading, or direct prolonged contact with the sun. The younger the vampire the longer they can survive in the sun, though they begin to burn immediately. Older vampires burst into dust faster with sunlight.In this series, vampires killed by beheading or a stake through the heart melt and sometimes explode into a gory and often sickening mass of blood and entrails which has to be literally scooped up with shovels to clean.Vampires can be physically harmed like humans, but they heal almost instantly. Regular bullets cannot kill vampires regardless of where they are shot, although they can "hurt like hell". Their bodies physically push out bullets, knifes, and other small objects when they heal. Vampires must feed regularly to heal and feed on more blood when they regenerate large amounts of damage.Vampires are burned by silver, and can be constrained with it. In spite of their superhuman strength, they appear unable to break free or even struggle against silver chains. Silver bullets or metal fragments like knifes or spears can cause more harm to a vampire than normal metals, but are not certain to kill. Vampires push silver bullets out of their body when they heal in the same way they do regular bullets, however, apparently more slowly. However, when hit in the heart with a wooden bullet it will kill them.
Q
What does the title, "True Blood," mean?
A
In the show, Tru Blood (spelled without an "e") is a synthetic blood substance sold in bottles for vampires to consume. It was invented in Japan by Yakonomo Corporation from a business deal with The Vampire Authority made back in 1986 and was one of the major factors in why vampires decided to reveal themselves to the world 20 years later when Tru Blood was finally released.
Q
Why does the world know about vampires?
A
The vampires "came out of the coffin" in an event called The Great Revelation. The exact date of this has not been mentioned on the show, but it was about two years before the events of the first episode. One major step for vampires to decide to come out was when Tru Blood was invented, since it would help the human public understand that the vampires were not a threat.Although a vampire can live on Tru Blood, it is kept secret that Tru Blood doesn't taste as good as real blood nor does it give vampires a sense of fufillment like feeding on humans. As such, some vampires feed from willing human mates (called "fangbangers") and others secretly hypnotize unwilling victims into forgetting they've been feed on. Still there are other vampires who opposed the Great Revelation continue to feed on and kill human victims who society will not miss. This keeps the world from knowing that not all vampires are friendly.Even though vampires are public knowledge other supernatural creatures like shape-shifters, were-animals, witches, and faeries are still hidden from the world. Vampires have been shown to dominate over most other supernatural creatures. This is likely because vampires are the only creature shown to organize societies on the scale of humans, integrate extensively with human history, and because they appear to be the most physically powerful of supernatural beings.
