Powers & AbilitiesEdit
As the first and oldest vampires in the world, the Original Vampires powers and abilities are the most advanced and, as their advanced age grants them much more strength and power than subsequent generations, by far superior to any other species. It is possible that their powers grow stronger with time. Some of these abilities are exclusive to them, making them among the most powerful supernatural creatures on Earth. In addition to having no sires, the Originals are also stronger than even the oldest of their "children." These are their standard abilities as the first generation of vampires.
