Supernatural nutritionGeneral information
⌈You were like a leech, sucking the life out of me till there was nothing left⌋
TW: This is a minor trigger warning, as this guide have to do with blood as a food source
So while we know what most of the speices eat due to their closeness to the human race, there haven't been made any clarifications on what the less human-like speices eat. Though we know that vampyres drink blood and daemons eat souls, all that have to come from somewhere. So fear no longer, this guide will tell you exactly what you need to know about the production of blood and souls for those pesky hipster races that just cant help themselves!
While general food such as cooked meals and vegetables can taste great to most species, those that dont need it for survival can eat it but since it bears no nutritional value to them, eating it would be more of a choice of politeness or belonging. The food won't necessarily taste like it would to those who need it and some vampyres/daemons would even find the taste somewhat repulsive. This is simply to avoid having the two species eat something regularly that doesn't really belong in their system.
While nutrition is something all races need, an issue appeared in the year 350 AH. A group of rivaling clans, one vampyre and another daemon, was trying to keep a hold over their respective areas. However mass killings took place, and the royal family had to act quickly. While at first the outcry from the families of the deceased roared to ban these two species from Kaleidoscope, it wasn't as easy as just sending them out of the country. With the help of the arrived humans, a group of scientists discovered the key ingredients that made the vampyres and daemons lust for their respective food source. This is how the idea of alternative nutrition for those who wanted it, could seek it out instead of giving in to potential murder.
To simply put it, this world have found means to make a mass-production of souls and blood with the goal to stop the two humanoid-feeding races to stop preying on the public. This doesnt mean that it is necessarily without it's consequences. Just as meat production have it's outrage from humans that choose to be vegan, so does this for the people that believe it is wrong.
É-vi (Élan vital - Soul production)
Élan vital is a huge company in the production of souls for daemons to buy from. The company itself revolves around creating and sustaining these so called "soul-bearers" that are humanoid creatures who have been genetically modified to reproduce or "heal" the part of their soul that is harvested. Many have questioned the company whether it was a cruel practice, but so far have the company claimed that these soul-bearers have little to no brain activity as they are just vessels to the means of production. There's not an official owner of this company, though it is known that most funds from sales are going to the temple of daemons. The product itself is sold in small vials, each vial containing what equates to one soul. Daemons often describe the difference in taste, quoting that it tastes like life, while a normal soul has flavors such as memories and feelings.
Pri-San (Primus sanguis - Blood production)
While Élan vital works on self-produced humanoids, Primus sanguis have a different and more humane approach. Willing participants show up to their blood donation centers and offer their blood for a proper sum of money. The blood-business revolves around the reliance of volunteers, but it haven't always been so. Pri-San was founded by the participation of every vampyre clan, at least financially. It isn't known whether it was from good-will or by force, that all vampyre clans put their money into the company that today is run under the council of every vampyre clan's representative. The product is often sold in what looks like plain wine bottles, making it a more descreet way for vampyres to shop for. A bottle could potentially keep a vampyre alive and out of hibernation for three days, and the taste is often described as aromatic like an aged whiskey.
