No offense to twilight fan. Haha. But when me and my guy housemates first watched Twilight, we were like - WTF dude... we have this image of vampires as night creatures that have this craving for blood and will get burned if exposed to the sunlight. And the only vampire I know that doesn't kill humans but save them is Angel. That too because he got cursed by a Gypsy after running amok on almost every part of the world.
The coolest vampire I ever know. I heard the vampires from Vampire's Diary are pretty bad ass too.
