Vampires are undead demons that feed on the blood of humans. They are creatures of the night. Vampires exist in a structured hive-like hierarchy ruled by a Queen, who is magically linked to all her children. Vampires were exiled from the Underworld centuries ago, after they attempted to overthrow the Source of All Evil. Vampires can turn other beings into vampires by biting them, though the transformation isn't complete until those turned drink human blood.
Shortly after Cole Turner became the Source of All Evil, a Vampire Queen attempted to forge an alliance, though Cole did not trust them. The Queen then ordered her minions to turn Paige Matthews into a vampire, so the Power of Three would be under her control. Paige then tried to turn her sisters as well, though Cole interfered and vanquished the Queen, thus killing all vampires and returning Paige to normal, as she hadn't drank human blood yet.
A few years later, the sisters tried to form a desperate alliance with the vampires after Zankou had obtained the Book of Shadows. However, Zankou had foreseen the attack and had convinced the queen to betray the sisters.
Irena later became a member of the Brotherhood. Once San Francisco was moved outside of space and time, her hive enjoyed the eternal night and unlimited access to fresh blood. Irena turned Taylor into a vampire and was later betrayed and vanquished by her, making Taylor the new queen.
