Vampires are very unique magically, as they are energetically well-rounded. This means, with the right persistence, skill, talent, and focus vampires are capable of up to the first couple graduate levels in both general and advanced magic. The down side to this is chances of a vampire ever completing the graduate levels of any magic in order to advance on to their ancient levels is completely dependent on their natural born talent and ancestry. Without this, the vampire cannot magically advance past level twelve in any type of magic. Kind of ironic considering the vampire is the closest biologically to Sarvannia's original ancient magical species. This is the single magical species that all of Sarvannia's native magicals today have evolved from. However, this is also probably why they can use, manipulate, and throw out their internal energies in unique ways that only the vampire is capable of doing.
