The Path of Blood (3.5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
The Path of Blood [Necromantic]
You have learned the dark and selfish rites that create vampires, the legendary immortal blood drinkers of the night.
Prerequisite: Character Level 5
Benefit: You can create Vampires and Vampire Spawn. Your unintelligent undead heal fully at the next sunset following them killing a living creature with a piercing or slashing attack. A spellcaster with this feat has access to any spell with a [blood] component. You automatically control up to your unmodified Charisma modifier in undead created by this feat, but no undead can have a CR greater than two less than your character level.
