Dhampir metabolism and temps

Post by Babywhatsyoursin on Sat May 30, 2015 3:09 am

Given my knack to overanalyze many things, was wondering the other day about climate interacting with dhampir/strigoi body temps.

Core temps tend to run high, so they steam under rain and practically glow in each other's heat-sensitive vision. My musing isn't so much regarding cooler temps as it is really warm ones.

I mean, I know I am probab l y way over thinking this.. I am just wondering how hot their bodies can get while in the case of strigoi sustaining the parasites? Is there a breaking point?  Must be. I don't think they can sweat?

Anyway, this whole thought process stemmed from me thinking about Q working in cold/arctic weather versus the polar (hah.) opppsite.

I have been think about it a lot too.
Quinlan would do better in colder climates than warmer ones.
I think that's true for all vampires. I remember reading that the vamps
did really well in Russia. And Russia is know for it's cold.

I honestly believe that Quinlan would suffer from heat stroke if
exposed to the heat for to long. Do to the fact that Borns have body tamps
just as high as vamps.

Also since his body tamp is just below burning.
It would make being with a woman really difficult.

he'd prolly have to put himself in a tub of ice just to feel remotely normal in body temp before he actually did anything with a woman XD

That or have her in a ice cold shower. She'd wrap her arms and legs around every inch of him, just to keep warm.

I'd totally risk being burnt.... *blush*

*cough* Anyway, does Quinlan see like normal humans do or like the strigoi?

I think it's a bit of both, or at lest I think it's a bit of both.

I see him as being able to bring his heat vision to the fore when needed, otherwise he would be fairly blind in daylight. I imagine him struggling a bit with glare but not being incapacitated.

Because he's a dhampir, I envisioned him as having a body temp of around 110ºF, roughly mid way between human and strigoi (which is 120ºF). He would not be terribly bothered by hot weather. When it's 100ºF out, yeah it's bad for a human (we folks in the south know!), but it's not prostrating. 100ºF to Quinlan would be about 90ºF to us. So he could hack it. And cold temps, too.

I would imagine desert environs would push them close to the edge. But then again, what dhampir or fullblood strigoi would be out in the heat of the day in a desert? They would find somewhere shady or underground to rest.

like Goetic said,I believe he sees in both vision types as well....like how the yautja switch vision types,hmmm maybe all he has to do is blink and it switches lol!!

so goetic,your saying that being with quinlan physically would be making out with someone on a really high fever...that's not so bad i guess.

kind of like a heated blanket....of muscly mass..

As far as switching eyesight, maybe it's more like eyes adjusting to dark/light... maybe, just as it takes our eyes to adjust to darkness, it takes a dhampir a moment to adjust to light.

I wonder how good their color vision is.

Yeah, that's what I meant- severe heat. Which yeah, they normal would not be out and about in. Curious...

That makes me think. If Quinlan can see all the arteries in the body. As well as the heat too. Then I think. That he could see. When Gus was aroused or a woman as hot for him. Embarassed How embarrassing.

You know. He could smell when any of us. Are on our periods. Isn't that wonderful. He knows when it's exactly that time of the month and that it's time to get from under foot.
