It seems that through the activity of an enzyme known as telomerase, the youth-preserving activity of the telomeres can be extended. In other words, there’s an actual chemical in our cells that may hold the secret to eternal youth, and if so, it may explain how vampires can live forever. Let’s see what the scientists have discovered. In one study, cells of patients suffering from Werner syndrome, a genetic disorder involving premature aging, were treated with telomerase. Generally these cells have a short life span in the lab because they age so fast, but the enzyme-treated cells proved to last indefinitely (at least thus far).
Other authors have recognized the nonsensical nature of this device and discarded it. Anne Rice, for example, shows her vampires preening in front of mirrors, and she explains that putting the reflection back into the mirror was a statement about her agnostic frame of mind. If there’s no God and thus no redeemable soul, then the whole mirror issue is irrelevant. Dracula scholar Elizabeth Miller has also given this issue some thought. “Of course, Dracula is not always a solid entity,” she reminds us.
The name Dracula was actually applied to him, derived from a Romanian word that means “dragon,” which was a reference to his father’s membership in the Order of the Dragon. Vlad was known to impale his enemies on sharpened stakes outside his castle walls—often alive—which earned him the nickname the Impaler. He also led raids over the borders into other lands, and a woodcut from that time shows him dining among the corpses. There was even a legend that he dipped his bread in the blood of his enemies before eating it.
