Dhampir, the offspring of vampire and human, are alluring, passionate creatures doomed to lust without ever knowing love, a mortal mind trapped in an eternal body. Despite their commanding presence, dhampir never feel truly at ease. They constantly struggle with a drive to consume warm, fresh blood. Even surrounded by loyal companions or a cadre of worshipers a dhampir’s blood lust is never sated, only eased.

Most dhampir lead a solitary existence. Never becoming too attached to those around them prevents complex moral dilemmas when the lust for companionship turns to a lust for a sanguine repast. Though driven to consume blood, dhampir do not require it to survive. All dhampir harbor deep resentments towards their parents for bestowing on them a living curse.
