The origin of vampire stories come from people that suffer from cutaneous porphyria.
Porphyria, is a blood condition that makes patients sensitive to sun. If exposed to the sun, their skin can suffer blistering skin lesions. Premodern medical treatments recommended that patients drink animal blood to compensate for the defect in their red blood cells. Porphyria patients can suffer from skin disfigurements that also cause their gums to recede, and make their teeth appear like fangs. Porphyria also causes people to have a high sensitivity to sulfur. Garlic contains a lot of sulfur so people with that disease will tend to avoid it.
I guess that the vampire figure is still useful as a metaphor for exploitation, or perhaps in a social context for describing the psychological abuse from narcissists, which can feel draining as well.
The late Mark Fisher also used a vampire metaphor to explain identity politicshttps://www.opendemocracy.net/en/opendemocracyuk/exiting-vampire-castle/
As far as immortal beings go, that only die if they are shot by a silver bullet, decapitated or impaled through the heart, that's definitely fantasy.
