"Sometimes the really scary bloodsuckers are entirely human" (Foster 17-18). Micheal Henchard was the first name that popped into my head when I thought of vampire-like humans.  The drunkard-turned-sucessful grain merchant-turned-worker fits the description perfectly.  For instance, Henchard's irresponsible action of selling his wife to the sailor destorys his wife's usefulness.  In other words, by selling his wife, Henchard is basically branding her as second-hand goods which in turn reduces her usefulness to society.Click here to enter a land of magic and wonderment (EL150 site)
