This spell (called the Immortality Spell) was created by a powerful warlock named Aldric Menes and performed by him over 4,000 years ago to turn himself and his family into the first vampires. It was also used by Silas 2,000 years ago and again by Esther over 1,000 years ago. Esther performed the spell in order to protect her family from the Werewolves. Those made into vampires using this spell are immortal beings. Silas performed this spell so he could live with his one true love forever.
