it’s because they drink so much blood, that over time there skin turns purple, hair goes red and so does there nails. Then over time, it’s a natural thing for the vampaneze to have, that’s why their blood is poisonous to vampires cuz it’s changed over time.

what if it was because blood inside you takes up a blue color, ya know, and they drink so much blood, which happens to be red outside off the body, that it would intertwine with their blood stream, and there be so much of it that it shows through their skin, and what color do red and blue make when mixed…? But it also could just be they drink so much blood it goes through their skin and is a purple color, but i like my theory better, it sounds cooler.

Because they drain the victims of their blood and the vast amount of blood they consumed caused they’re skin to turn purple

They drink so much blood that their skin goes all swollen-ish and I always pictured them with their veins popping out from pressure and all+ that was my theory though

In the book (correct me if I am wrong) it said that it was because they drank so much blood. That would be weird if that really happened to you.
