The Vampires are jellyfish-like creatures with no visible head or facial features other than a huge maw, and bearing several muscular tentacles strong enough to crush a man to death and armed with suckers on the tips through which the aliens drain their victims out of their blood. Normally invisible to the Human eye, the Star Vampires become visible after feeding as the blood of their victims fill their entire bodies giving them a vivid red color. They constantly emit a strange terrifying laughter.
Their extraterrestrial nature is inferred from references of them as coming from the stars, though their exact origin is unknown, the way they can be quickly summoned could also suggest extra-dimensional nature or abilities.
