Bloodlust (Pad of Definitions)
A desire by vampires for bloodshed. Vampires in most folk lore must drink fresh blood on a regular basis to survive.
While most lore on vampires is not true, the bloodlust however, is true. When a human is first turned into a vampire, they are quickly hit with an intense hunger to feed on human blood. Doing so completes the vampiric transformation, making the infection irreversible. Some vampires have been shown to be able to control their bloodlust, like Lenore and her fellow vampires in 2.03 Bloodlust, who sate their thirst with cow blood, as well as Benny Lafitte, who kept his hunger in check by feeding on bloodbags.
- John: Most vampire lore is crap. A cross won't repel them, sunlight won't kill them, and neither will a stake to the heart. But the bloodlust, that part's true. They need fresh human blood to survive. They were once people, so you won't know it's a vampire until it's too late.
- Dean: Look, until we get the facts, we stow the bloodlust and we work this case right, or we work it separately.
- Crowley: Hello, Dean. Love the crazy bloodlust in your eyes.
- Crowley: Look… you're going to snap eventually. The anger, the bloodlust is gonna build up in you until you can't take it anymore, and then… So, the question is, do you want to spike a civilian or someone who has it coming?
