Since vampire movies are becoming very popular, this Archetype is making a comeback. It can be associated with sexuality, but since it bites on the neck it can bring up issues related to commitment. This is a character who is sustained by ‘Blood’ or the need to get below the surface to find nourishment through feelings. It can symbolize opening to feelings. While it may seem grotesque, there is a message here about how you need to find natural sustenance, allowing your feelings to be expressed. See also Shadow.
