Dhamphiri (also known as dampires) are half-human, half-vampire. In some sources,Homo Sapiens dhamphiris nocturnais the technical name of these creatures. In Serbian mythology, they are the child of a Vampire and his widow.
It has been said that dhampirs often have powers similar to a vampire, but none of their weaknesses (though the reverse can occur, as well). It is also believed to be unusually adept at killing and detecting vampires.
