Introducing The Global Vampire, Donor, Therian, Otherkin+ Community Directory


If you are reading this post and identify as either a Real Vampi(y)re, Donor, Therian, or Otherkin you are strongly encouraged you join the Global VDTORS Community Directory by completing the Sign-Up Form located at the following link.

Sign-Up Form:
Maps & Database:

We are proud to announce the the official public release of the Global V.D.T.O.R.S. Community Directory!  At the link below you will find the most current Identity Type Distribution and Frequency Distribution geographic maps for the 1,036 Vampi(y)res, Donors, Therians, Otherkin, Researchers, and Supporters who have signed up for the Directory as of May 19, 2013.  Anyone signing up for the Directory after 2 PM ET May 19, 2013 will be included in future updates.  If you have not already joined we highly encourage you to do so by visiting the sign-up form linked above (Note; please do NOT complete the form again if you have already done so – if in doubt please e-mail us and inquire).  As more participants join we will be unveiling additional features, demographic correlations, layered map renderings, and other components (once we attain 250+ exclusive participants for both the Therian and Otherkin communities we will provide joint and separate maps for more streamlined viewing along with theriotype(s) and kintype(s) added to the description fields where applicable).

Vampires and donors (+ therians and otherkin) who have requested to be placed in contact with others in their geographic areas will receive instructions via their primary e-mail address on or about May 31, 2013 detailing the specifics of the UID Contact System mentioned in the Database page linked below.  Please review all materials, legend descriptions, database chart at the bottom of the page, and take advantage of viewing the maps in full screen mode.  This has and will continue to be a labor of hundreds of hours of data compilation, revising, double checking for duplicates/misspellings, correlations, etc. and we appreciate any donations you are able to send to keep Merticus well stocked with coffee and libations.  This project will evolve and grow based on the involvement of the communities represented so if you are aware of individuals or groups who have yet to complete the sign-up form please give them a friendly nudge.  Thank you!

w/Provision For Therian & Otherkin Participation

Global Directory Registration Form:

All self-identified vampi(y)res, donors, therians, otherkin, and interested parties who are 18 years of age or older are encouraged to participate by completing the registration form linked above.  If you have already completed this form please do NOT do so a second time.  Thank you!

June 1, 2013 Update:

The Global V.D.T.O.R.S. Community Directory is now active and available for viewing at the following link:

Directory Registrations As Of May 1, 2013:

821Vampi(y)res, Donors, Therians, Otherkin, Researchers, & Supporters

Geographic Distribution:

47/50 U.S. States + District of Columbia & Puerto Rico
52 Countries

67.2% U.S. (552)
32.8% Non-U.S. (269)

Gender Distribution:

38% Male
57% Female
5% Transgender/Other

Type/Identity Distribution:

Vampi(y)res:  Refer To Chart – Pending
Donors:  Refer To Chart – Pending
Therians/Therianthropes*:  110
Otherkin*:  214
Researchers:  Refer To Chart – Pending
Supporters:  Refer To Chart – Pending

*Includes all self-identified (T/O/VT/VO/VTO) Therians, Otherkin, Vampire/Therian, Vampire/Otherkin, & Vampire/Therian/Otherkin combinations

U.S. State & Country Distribution – Valid From May 1, 2013:

Sample Directory Database – Valid From May 1, 2013:

The database (45+ pages) contains the detailed breakdown of identity along with contact/mailing preferences and is still being compiled and edited for duplications, accuracy, and geographic groupings (please do NOT resubmit the registration form if you have already completed it in the past).  We estimate it will take approximately 10-15 days to finalize this process and apologize for the delay — entering and parsing data for soon to be approaching 1,000 individuals is a daunting and time consuming task.  We thank you for your patience!

Sample Directory Maps – Valid From May 1, 2013:

We have selected four (4) sample locations until we are able to finish compiling the information on all respondents to date so that there will be a better understanding on how the Global Directory will appear to the public.  All direct contact information (e-mail) will be distributed internally to those in the specific geographic regions and no monikers/names will be included on the public website in order to afford the highest degree of anonymity.  While we realize some community directories list the name and e-mail of participants as pinpoints on a map, the dangers inherit to using that information to possibly ascertain the identity of the individual are quite real.  We remain committed to providing the highest level of professionalism, security, and comprehensiveness with this Global Directory and appreciate your participation.

We anticipate providing both a large global map and smaller regional maps for distribution frequencies in excess of 15-20+.  A chart breaking down the specific feeding and donation preferences + identities will also be provided.  Differently colored points for exclusive Donor, Therian, Otherkin, Researcher, and Supporter respondents should also be implemented, however, multiple combinations or hybrid respondents will appear in red by default.
