Talos is the name of a modern Vampyric Coven, established 2005, in North America. However the majority of traditions and beliefs are derived from Ireland. The Talos were founded on the principles of Psychic Vampyrism, primarily that of Sexual Vampyrism. As a result of its tendencies towards Sexual Vampyrism and feeding habits, the members of the Talos Coven often identify themselves as being "Incubus (s.)" or "Incubi (p.)" for males or "Succubus (s.)" or "Succubi (p.)" for females.
Philosophically, The Talos follow the ideals of respect for all, especially towards those from which they "feed," or derive their energy via sexual actions. Also, the ideals of Chivalry are held high amongst its members.
The Talos were founded by Morrighan Bathory Talos. At her right hand in assistance in leading The Talos is Cassius Vicios Talos. Numerous others belong to this Coven, and as of February 2010, there were 21 individuals who dedicated and were bestowed the Talos name.
As many of the practicing members of the Talos Coven are distant from one another, the Coven meets regularly via Internet chats and forums to discuss matters on multiple levels. These meetings occur primarily on www.IMVU.com in the Public Rooms. These rooms can be found by searching the name "Talos".
Most Vampyric Houses or Covens still practice archaic forms of feeding, whereas houses such as The Talos believe in a more refined and efficient feeding through energy.
