Also Vampires don't need to adapt. THEY DON'T CARE.

 

Being Vampire means you have no conscience or feeling of guilt. You are still exact same person but NOT limited by the concept of your morality and how you understand morality.

 

A bit similar on how REALLY drunk people act. However without drunk part.

That's another thing being a vampire on Buffy kind of stinks. It's funny because every movie before that made being a vampire cool. I rewatched lost boys the other night and I realized that they made being a vampire cool in that movie. They looked cool and they were young which you rarely saw in vampire movies.

Which is the whole point :P

 

There are only two "really cool" vamps in BTVS and both of them are evil :)

This is true, but there is more to it than that. It is stated about a million times that vampires feel a need to be evil from the moment they awake from their grave. 

They looked cool and they were young which you rarely saw in vampire movies. 

Looking young is just a matter of when they are turned. . . They tend to be young because it is directed to an audience of approx 15~. Young people are to shallow to want to watch 40+ year old people.

Opinion based, but i can think of at least 4(IMO).

Not necessarily (as certian example proves).

It depends on their human nature. Who they were, what are they capable of.

 

In nature, EVERY person has evil/primal nature(hence werewolves). EVERY person has Evil inside them.

The Fanged Four(or SADD)are nice and all but only two out of those four I think of as great characters :P

I can't really think of anyone?

Sure Angel, but he got soul and was tormented by it, and more of it and he would kill himself. Then Spike. And with him, it was because of the chip. THE DAMN CHIP :P Since falling for Buffy, obviously changed him, but it started with the chip, and he would have never changed without it. 

The few vampires Buffy talk to(on top of my head, only the psych student), took for granted they where evil now, and needed to do evil things. They didn't express it as something they wanted in particular, but something they needed. Sorta a force driving them.

And yes, it depend on their human nature also, but every vampire is evil, unless the middleway is forced upon them. As it was with Angel and Spike.

Not exactly that. Look at how he was after he was vamped but before the hole "lets hunt slayers" stuff and before becoming Dru's puppy.  

 

Vamps don't "need" to do evil things. They NEED blood and they get off on violence. Like any human without morals would. But if they want to do something "evil" they will do since they don't have the guilt or conscience stopping them. 

 

As I said, in buffyverse, every human being, every being is inherently evil. ANimal. Its their conscience, their guilt, their "soul" that restricts them.

becoming vampire reveals who you are as a person inside. What kind of monster you hide behind your mask.
