The Vladats are a functionally extinct race of vampire-like aliens from the planet Anur Vladias in the Anur System.
The Vladats originated from Anur Vladias. When it became uninhabitable, they abandoned their home planet and moved to the planet Anur Transyl, the home planet of the Transylians. According to Dr. Viktor, the Vladats used his people as slaves like nothing more than beast of burden and, ultimately, as food. This is most likely due to their ability to create Corrupturas, which they used to control others.
Vladats were destroyed in a war against the Transylians some time before Azmuth started acquiring DNA samples for the Omnitrix. Therefore, their DNA was not originally in any Omnitrix DNA database.
Zs'Skayr revived Lord Transyl using the Alpha Rune and attempted to use his DNA as a template to revive the Vladat species only to be stopped Ben Tennyson and a vengeful Viktor.
Technically speaking, the Omnitrix transformation Whampire and his genetic donor Lord Transyl are currently the only living Vladats left in the universe.
Their main source of food were Transylians, though it is later revealed that they can feed off energy from any other living beings. They also eat insects, as seen with Whampire.
Judging from their past history with the Transylians, Viktor's hatred of them, and Lord Transyl's attitude toward Zs'Skar and others, Vladats are seen to be arrogant, cruel, and bloodthirsty. They consider other beings (especially Ectonurites) to be inferior. To them, other beings are only useful as slaves and/or food.
Vladats possess powers that are similar to stereotypical vampires of legend. They can fly using the bat-like wings under their arms, and can also turn themselves into miniature bat forms.
In order to control multiple creatures at once, Vladats create bat-like creatures called Corrupturas inside their bodies and affix them to their victims' foreheads. By making eye contact, they can also hypnotize a victim, forcing them to obey their commands. The biggest difference between these two abilities is that Corruptura victims are still conscious and aware of their surroundings yet are unable to stop themselves from obeying the Vladat's commands.
Vladats possess enhanced strength, as they can easily hold up their victims and carry them while flying.
Vladats feed on the life force of others by sucking it through their fangs. Normally they feed on Transylians, but will feed on other races if necessary.
Vladats can generate a powerful sonic explosion as a means of self-defense, such as when Whampire battled a Corruptura-controlled mob of aliens.
The Vladats cannot mind-control other Vladats, cybernetically enhanced beings such as Exo-Skull, or members of Hobble's Species.
Vladats can be harmed from exposure to sunlight. However, unlike Ectonurites, they cam withstand greater amounts of light before being burned to ashes.
Vladats are unable to drain life energy from Ectonurites since they are not alive in the conventional sense. Vladats can also be possessed by Ectonurites.
Omnitrix Transformation Edit
The Omnitrix's Vladat representative is named Whampire, who first appeared in the Omniverse episode "The Vampire Strikes Back" after the Omnitrix scanned Lord Transyl. Whampire solely appears in Omniverse.
Vladat is based on Vlad the Impaler, the basis for the original Count Dracula.
- According to Duncan Rouleau, the Omnitrix from the Ben 10 reboot contains Vladat DNA. Therefore, Whampire is one of the countless aliens whose DNA pod was glimpsed in the episode "Innervasion Part 5: High Override".
