Thicker Than Blood
The Jiangshi are a race of legendary Chinese creatures, superficially similar to Kindred, in that they feed off of mortals. However, unlike Kindred, the Jiangshi feed directly on the spiritual essence, the life-force of mortals.
Jiangshi are not harmed by sunlight as Kindred are, but do suffer a number of weaknesses, the greatest of which being a supernatural vulnerability to Peach wood. Jiangshi are also terrified of their own reflections.
