Essence Drain. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d10+2) lightning damage, and the target's Strength score is reduced by 1d6.

Like the fire vampire, the crimson vampire has little in common with the common undead vampire. It appears as crimson bursts of lightning. The touch of a crimson vampire drains a victim’s live force and also their memories. The victim of a crimson vampire sometimes burst into flames. All crimson vampires share a hive mind and thus have access to a vast amount of absorbed memories. Crimson vampires are said to be the servants of Cthugha, a god that lives on a comet.
