Although the idea of vampires being sexy is generally associated with the Gothic Horror novels of the late 1800s, even before that, in the Balkan region of Europe, it was believed that some vampires would come back from the dead and have sex with their wives - sex that could lead to the birth of half human, half vampire offspring. Known various as Dhampyres, Dhampirs, Dhamphirs or Dhampyrs, these mythological beings were believed to have certain vampiric strengths, which made them excellent vampire hunters, but none of their vampiric weaknesses, such as an aversion to sunlight or need to feed on blood.

In /tg/, dhampyres are a comparatively rare sight; they're considered too much the natural fit for "edgelords" - the kinds of players who usually migrate to drow or tiefling PCs because they think the "dark, brooding, angsty character" is awesome - or else they're seen as too rooted in Gothic Horror. Others even think they're too fantastical to believe in their existence, even by the standards of your typical fantasy world. But, they do survive here and there.

Dungeons & Dragons has had a couple of attempts at a dhampyre race, but none have really taken off officially; there was a "Katane" race in Dragon Magazine #313, and assorted "Half-Vampire" templates, most notably the Dhampir and Vorlog templates in Ravenloft 3rd edition. Ironically, the closest time D&D got to it was in 4th edition; the Dhampyr as a feat-based "pseudo-template" was one of their earliest racial experiments in Dragon Magazine, whilst the Vyrkoloka of Heroes of Shadow was essentially a Dhampyr with its name taken from another kind of vampire.

The sun was beating down mercilessly but the challenge must be met. One hand reached up and grabbed the edge. The fingers curled over the edge and gripped tight. The muscles became taut as arms pulled up the weight. The other hand reached up for the next level and the pattern repeated itself. It was rhythmic like everything else in nature.

Angela grunted as she reached for the edge and hauled herself over. Standing up she could see a pretty nice landscape even with the junkyard cars lying all around. However, her eyes were on something else. Taking a breath she ran forward and leapt off, feeling the thrill of free fall from about fifteen feet or so; certainly a distance to break someone's back.

She trusted her senses and reached out to grab the pole in front of her. Her fingers curled tightly and she felt the muscles in her wrist contort through her gauntlets. She let the force of gravity carry her and she swung her body forward like a gymnast on the high bar. With momentum, she released her hold on the bar and back flipped as she dropped to the ground.

Adrian Fahrenheit Ţepeş [3] (also spelled as Adrian Farenheights Tepes [4] ), better known as Alucard , is the dhampir son of Dracula .

As the offspring of an unnatural bond between Dracula and a human woman named Lisa , Adrian had special powers and was destined to be stronger than any human but not potentially as strong as his father. After Lisa was killed, having been mistaken for a witch, Adrian grew up under the influence of his father, whence he was taught in the dark arts and molded into a warrior who would one day fight for the side of evil.

Alucard is an adept swordsman and typically wields one-handed swords. Alucard's other attacks use dark magic. As a shape-shifter, Alucard can change himself into a bat, a wolf, or even mist.
