World Of Darkness
When a mortal is exposed to the Kindred Blood and ingests it into their system, they become a Ghoul. They don’t necessarily need to drink the Blood. So long as the Vitae enters their bloodstream, they are “infected” with it.
The Blood is highly addictive. It makes heroin addiction look like a suburban yuppie’s hangover after a couple of beers at Monday Night Football. One drink or exposure event is enough to Ghoul a mortal and leave them with a craving for more. Continued exposure results in a Blood Bond and the addiction is in full swing. There’s a reason why they call the book about Ghouls – Ghouls: the Fatal Addiction. Please see Blood Bond for more information.
