Summerset has a quest that puts great doubts in Molag Bal being the only way vampires can come into existance. And in Oblivion there is that one quest with the journel with the vampire plants that might be something that could be a formula for Alchemical vampirism as well. https://elderscrolls.fandom.com/wiki/Amantius_Allectus'_Diary
The Summerset quest involves https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Online:Norasea
being a vampire but not the normal Molag Bal type. In the quest you find out she was alchemically bred.https://elderscrolls.fandom.com/wiki/Haladan's_Research_Journal
Once we arrived at that critical insight, Emile suggested he might have a solution: Porphyric Hemophilia-better known as vampirism. I was aghast at the idea. But I trust his models. Vampirism, as we understand it, drastically alters blood composition. Theoretically, this reconfiguration could make it impossible for the keratous growths to form. We wouldn't be able to restore Norasea's eyesight, but we could very well halt the disease in its tracks. I must think on this.
After long consideration, I've decided to proceed with Emile's plan. I appraised Norasea of the details, and she agreed to go through with it. Now it's just a matter of reproducing the vampiric infection alchemically. The Sapiarchs would never approve of such a gambit, but I promised Norasea we would cure her. Sometimes tradition must make way for frightening innovation.
In Noraseas dialog she mentions this.
Stone abominations, vampiric alchemy …. If the Sapiarchs found out that Haladan had a hand in this tragedy they would strike his name from the histories. Emile would never let that happen.
Read Haladan's notes. You'll see the truth of it."
And at some point she also mentions this.
"Yes. I can feel it creeping up the back of my throat—that thirst. It was just a tickle at first. Now? Who knows how far it will go.
Emile brewed this form of the virus alchemically. Maybe this will pass and I won't need to feed at all. I can hope.
if you expose the truth then you get interesting dialog with this guy on this.https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Online:Sapiarch_Soraturil
Emile is innocent. A deranged stone creature killed Haladan. These notes explain everything.
"This handwriting … yes, I'd recognize Haladan's penmanship anywhere. Syrabanes's ring! How could he be so foolish? Brewing up alchemical vampirism? Experimenting in secret?
I cannot believe one of our own could be so reckless!"
"We will hunt her down and destroy her. This brings me no pleasure, I assure you. But we cannot allow an alchemically-bred vampire to roam our lands unchecked.
You may disagree, but the fault lies with Emile and Haladan, not the Sapiarchs."
Given the way
The way Porphyric Hemophilia works In Morrowind and Oblivion and how it is cured I strongly suspect that it is a strain that isn't connected to Molag Bal. This could explain why Vile was able to alter the Cyrodiilic vampires.What if the decedents of Norasea are those that also the same strain found in Cyrodiil? What are your thoughts what do you think about all this? Because this quest basically means that Molag Bal isn't the only source for the vampiric condition. This basically would mean the mortals themselves have managed to create their own variant outside of him and has some really interesting implications about them and also more questions.
