"Harmony's the leading advocate for Reform Vampirism. Only drain blood with permision... not enough to kill... and no siring."

Reform vampirism, also known as the Harmony Rules, was a movement among vampires to gain a place in human society. Its proponent and leading advocate was Harmony Kendall, who inspired a general reform in the interaction between humans and demons. It was a substantial element for the vampire craze. Vampire Supremacism was created in direct opposition to Reform Vampirism.


Ash: "That's so last millennium, Cyn! Get with the times. We're the heroes now! We're the ones the humans want to be with, the ones they worship! We can't go killing them just because we're bored."
Cyn: "Why not? Just because Harmony Kendall says so?"

Vampires adept to the reform loved the change and said it was the best thing for vampires, since it made them get all the food they'd want. This allowed them to feed without the risk of being hunted, while enjoying the popularity of humans seeking to be bitten. The ones that wouldn't follow the rules were also ostracized among vampires.[1][2]

Still, vampires that weren't adept were able to take advantage of it, as it made the kill easier: "[Harmony] makes the humans think we're all sex and cuddly. It's like shooting fish in a barrel these days. And the more vampires go veggie, the more blood there is for the rest of us."[3]

According to Faith Lehane, slaying vampires followers of the Harmony Rules was a moral grey area, but the bigger problem was it would potentially start a war.[4]

While sane, Drusilla was a temporary follower of the reform. She also turned a Lorophage demon from a predator to a healer.[5]

In order to make an alliance with Buffy Summers, Harmony encouraged Vicki and new vampires associates to abide to the Harmony Rules.[6]

In VampCon, the rules were a condition for participation, allowing humans to share their blood in nonfatal amounts.[7] In its second edition, Harmony reminded the rules' importance in a world that recognizes the existence of the supernatural.[8]
