Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me. In an upcoming story which I hope I will be able to start with in the next month or so *Fingers crossed* I was wondering if anyone could tell me if vampires had shadows or not? Thanks!

Depends on the school of thought your into.
If you believe the reason that vampires cannot be photographed or cast a reflection in a mirror is due to the absence of the soul then you can reasonable assume they cannot cast shadows (as shadows can be seen as representation of souls - think Peter Pan).
Otherwise sure they can cast a shadow! They are still a human body even if a demon is inside of it. For that matter they could always cast a reflection of what the demon looks like instead of their human form in shadows.

That makes sense I was thinking they couldnt because they didnt have reflections so it had to be kind of the same thing.
Thank you so much =)

I think it depends on which myths/legends you draw from. Most everything I've read, they cast a shadow, but don't have a reflection.

I never even thought about vamps having shadows before lol. So I could go either way? That will definitely work for my story thank you =)
