A dhampyr is the liveborn offspring of a vampire and a mortal. As a hybrid, it possesses some traits of both parents: dhampyr are always immune to the bite of a vampire, are generally immune to standard vampire weaknesses (though may still be affected by them to a lesser degree), cannot take on alternate forms naturally and are not undead.
