The Angelkin-Vampyre Connection
Please note that this is a personal theory of mine, formulated from observations I have made but being somewhat of a logical mind, I could not help but see the connection between Vampyres and Angelkin.
To explain my theory to its fullest we must first look as the overall definition of what Angelkin are.
Generally speaking, Angelkin are those who self-identify as celestial beings incarnated into human bodies and sent on a specific purpose or mission on earth. They hold the connection to what they call the Source.
Being of the light they are generally assumed to be good and pure. (Some spiritualities and religions define light and dark as synonyms for good and evil, but others do not teach that light or dark have any deeper meaning other than that of being opposites, or that one defines the lack of the other.)
They manifest an intense longing to be part of the Source, since that is where they spend their existence. They still are linked to the Source as a point of energy and strength on their mission. They posses several skills including manipulation of energy as well as empathy. Claims have been made which relate to phantom limbs, which they feel, represent wings. In addition, they are compelled to go out of their way help and aid those in need. They claim to feel that they are being controlled or guided, with no real free will of their own.
Therefore, in summary the characteristics of Angelkin would be:
So taking the above into account, and looking through ancient texts of angel representation and angels who choose to fall from grace, technically there would be several things which would remain the same and several that would be opposite when one looks at the theoretical concept of fallen angels, which come feel describes the origins of the Vampyre.
Listed traits of a fallen Angelkin:
Now, if you look at these points, I found something very interesting. The number of similarities shared between the fallen characteristics and that of a Vampyre.
If you look at them individually:
So, looking at the obvious similarities between what can be seen between Vampyres and fallen Angelkin, I ask: is it that far a leap to believe that maybe Vampyres are not as much monsters as perceived by the majority of the population but celestial beings who choose to be free from the control and manipulation of a Source and by severing the link and breaking the leash, claiming freedom? Although, with all freedoms there is an ultimate price to be paid. Our price is the constant thirst and hunger to sustain ourselves, our isolation, the darkness, and a longing to be whole.
This is my personal theory, a theory which espouses the idea that maybe we are indeed the bloodthirsty creatures of darkness that religious tradition and also traditional fiction portray us to be. That we are paying a price for our choice to be free and individualistic rather than be controlled and in servitude.
In the dark, we find our true selves.
* The Source is often discussed by most Christian/Judeo-aligned otherkin, it is a recognized Source of Universal Love and Light. This is the thing most Humans recognize as God or a God figure, as the key to their own unconditional love and warmth for the Source and others.
Note: Theological matters, To say that God is merely a spiritual entity/source would offend many people, more existential people would count God as an unknowable being beyond this Universe, others even that this universe is but God itself, a universal mind. Similarly, fundamentalist religious people from other religions would have their own theories and beliefs. Belief is that the spiritual world is so interconnected, so complex, and subtle that it can easily be considered as a mind, holding all the secrets of spirituality with its misty, crystalline form.

Eerie America TV Series
Eerie America could very well be called The Fodors Travel Guidebook for The Addams Family. I read some in-depth information about the show and saw the promo, and from what I can tell, this will be an absolutely AWESOME series if they can get it off the ground. (I'm actually praying they will.) Let others know and see who can help. This is something that should happen! Let's pull together and make it so!
