1) at this point I think it is already too late to change a term that is mentioned so much in the text but it might be useful for those who will translate the next books

2) In vampire terminology, "familiar" is a human that helps a vampire; he is not a vampire himself.

I researched it on the internet but I've yet to find a word for it. All I know is that the vampire who turns humans into other vampires is called a "sire", but there is no term for those who get "sired" (or "vamped").
