No. No more than the Easter Bunny or the Tooth Fairy. It appears that the V5 myth rose out of the British TV miniseries Ultraviolet in which the the word "vampire" is never uttered. The government backed vampire hunting squad the main character discovers subtitutes "Code 5" or the Roman numeral V to denote cases and targets. Hence, V5. A number of vampire enthusiasts who have taken role playing and fantasy a bit too far…

Yes. the vampires in twilight do have reflections. it is just a myth that they dont, humans just made the myth up so they would think they would stand a chance at defeating a vampire. Some vampires have had trouble in accepting the fact of their new existence and couldn't bear to see their reflections: a reminder of who they were and what they have become. Other vampires have suffered great denial, refusing to see…
The mythological creature known as the vampire originated in the Balkans, likely ultimately inspired by older Sumerian myths. Contrary to popular belief, Vlad Dracula had nothing to do with the myth. Vampires pre-dated him by centuries, and nobody, especially the Romanians, actually believed that he might have been a vampire until Bram Stoker's Dracula was released. Furthermore, Stoker had almost completed his book and had named his villain "Count Wampyr" when he discovered the Wallachian…
Vampires are bats from South America who take some blood from cattle at night. They can obviously breed. Coventional vampire mythology says that they cannot have children as they have given up their mortality for eternal life as a vampire. They are considered dead, and therefore cannot produce new life. Some variations of the vampire myth may have different concepts of vampires that do allow them to have children.
There are such things as vampire bats. Although many bats live off of insects and fruit, there are some larger types of bats that eat small rodents and other animals. They will not, as myth goes, suck animals or humans dry of blood. One could blame Bram Stoker and later vampire enthusiasts and fear-mongerers of starting that rumor.

Vampires are creatures of myth and legend and do not exist. There are people with personality disorders who think they are vampires, but they are not. I suppose the truest living vampire would be the vampire bat, who lives off of the blood of animals, even having an anti-coagulant in their saliva to allow the blood to continue flowing, whilst they are lapping up the blood from the animal's lower leg.
What was the myth about vampires turning people into zombies and not vampires and if that was the myth then how were vampires made in the first place?
Vampires do not exist, therefore they do not turn people into zombies and zombies do not exist. ALL of it is legend created by people who didn't understand the natural world. There are many different vampire myths, not all of them agree in facts; in fact some have no attempt at logic to them whatsoever. Basically vampire are fictional creatures and as such may do whatever their writer wants them to do. (drink blood, turn…
There's this myth that vampires were humans with a disease and if you cuaght it you'd become a vampire and join the dark side. After a vampire died, someone(usually a grave digger) would put a brick in your mouth to stop the disease from spreading. There is evidence of this happening in Rome around the 1600's .
If someone who was a little 'chubby' got turned into a vampire would they be able to lose that extra weight or would they be stuck being 'chubby' for the rest of eternity?
what? is English not your first language? If your asking if HIV can be transmitted by drinking HIV positive blood, it would depend on the quantity, how long the blood has been exposed to air, and the presence or absence of cuts or sores in the mouth and throat. short answer the vampires not the myth ones do get aids from drinking blood.
Sorry guys, there is no scientific proof of the existence of Vampires or Vampyrs. They are creatures of myth and legend, sprung from human fears and misconceptions of the physiology of death in the middle ages, popularised by fiction, movies, television and some very active imaginations. A vampire is a dead human kept animate by 'that something special' that enables him to be a vampire.
