Vulkods are bestial and primitive vampires. Vulkods are recognized for their immense strength and size. They extremely territorial by nature and will attack those entering their space.
It is possible that an intense rage, or extreme loss may cause some sort of effect, or influence that can cause someone to turn into a lesser Vulkod (like the sewer beast). One example, is that when you embrace Thelma Howcraft, Thomas Elwood goes missing. However, you can find him nearby at the abandoned morgue, transformed into one of these beasts. However, one unique trait, is he'll actually talk to you during the forced fight you go through, with him.
Some visual identifiers include dark skin, white or gray hair and large and hulking figures with uneven limbs. Their physical appearance can be likened to that of werewolves.
