I've been thinking about vampires. And I've reached the conclusion that the person who invented them probably went through something like "head trauma". "Undead" is such a good word to describe how brain damage feels.
But the fictional part of vampires is their "want" to turn others into vampires. I bet some very creative, writerly person with brain damage is the originator of "vampires."
I think I might modernize vampires, and make them more realistic. Instead of having teeth, they'll carry metal, baseball bats. And instead of turning others into vampires by biting them on their necks. They'll beat them over their head with their bats.
