Vampires are the living remains of a deceased person, often referred to as "the undead." They have the blood of others in them.
Vampires in popular culture includes vampire ballet, films, literature, music, opera, theatre, opera, paintings and video games.
Legends of vampires have existed for millennia; cultures such as the Mesopotamians, Hebrews, Ancient Greeks, and Romans had tales of demonic entities and blood-drinking spirits which are considered precursors to modern vampires. Despite the occurrence of vampire-like creatures in these ancient civilizations, the folklore for the entity we know today as the vampire originates almost exclusively from early 18th-century Southeastern Europe, particularly Transylvania as verbal traditions of many ethnic groups of the region were recorded and published. In most cases, vampires are revenants of evil beings, suicide victims, or witches, but can also be created by a malevolent spirit possessing a corpse or by being bitten by a vampire itself. Belief in such legends became so rife that in some areas it caused mass hysteria and even public executions of people believed to be vampires.
Vampire Counts are one of the two factions of the Undead playable in the tabletop wargame Warhammer Fantasy Battle. The Vampire Counts was the first independent Undead faction split out of the original unified book. At the end of 5th Edition, in 1999, the first Vampire Counts army book was released. The other faction, Tomb Kings, was released in 2002 during 6th Edition. The rivalry between the two main Undead factions was greatly expanded in these first separated releases. The Vampire Counts have access to strong heroes and much of the troops from the former Undead, making it more of a successor to the original unified Undead army than the Egyptian-themed Tomb Kings (although, in the Warhammer story, the Tomb Kings are the original undead).
They are heavily influenced by stories of vampires from popular culture. The Vampire Counts generally hail from the area of Sylvania, though their presence is felt across the Old World and beyond.

Pharmacology (from Greek φάρμακον, pharmakon, "poison" in classic Greek; "drug" in modern Greek; and -λογία, -logia "study of", "knowledge of") is the branch of medicine and biology concerned with the study of drug action, where a drug can be broadly defined as any man-made, natural, or endogenous (within the body) molecule which exerts a biochemical and/or physiological effect on the cell, tissue, organ, or organism. More specifically, it is the study of the interactions that occur between a living organism and chemicals that affect normal or abnormal biochemical function. If substances have medicinal properties, they are considered pharmaceuticals.
