Don't really have much to say about this one. I guess I should mention that under the Vampire rules of this universe, they don't die in sunlight, only become groggy and weak.
I guess being self-reliant might not be as hard when the only food you need is the blood of the innocent. Maybe that's why vampires always have money to blow on gothic castles and bitchin' capes.
Actually intend for the sun thing to not be readily known by humans, but yeah. Not much of a spoiler either.
And worth noting that applies for <i>this</i> universe - being from a different one Gwendolyn plays by a separate rule book and is perfectly fine to operate whenever she wants. Just by night she's forced into the more monstrous form seen so far.
