Dhampir Information

The half-living children of vampires birthed by human females, dhampirs are progenies of both horror and tragedy. The circumstances of a dhampir's conception are often called into question but scarcely understood, as few mortal mothers survive the childbirth. Those who do often abandon their monstrous children and refuse to speak of the matter.

While some speculate that dhampirs result when mortal women couple with vampires, others claim that they form when a pregnant woman suffers a vampire bite. Some particularly zealous scholars even contest dhampirs' status as a unique race, instead viewing them as humans suffering from an unholy affliction. Indeed, this hypothesis is strengthened by dhampirs' seeming inability to reproduce, their offspring inevitably humans (usually sorcerers with the undead bloodline).

 

Dhampir Physical Appearance

Most dhampirs are tall and slender, possessing physical grace and unearthly beauty. While eye colour, skin hue, and hair colour resembles that of the mother, they also possess a ghostly pallor which people find unnerving. They tend to move with unworldly fluidity, and have a piercing gaze.

Moroi-Born (Svetocher)

Description

Dhampirs who can trace their heritage to moroi are known as svetochers, and they inherit much of the unnatural charm and beauty exhibited by their vampiric forebears. Svetochers tend to have an easier time than other dhampirs when associating with mortals, though they must be careful That their relatively wanton social interactions do not breed jealousy, resentment, or disdain. They are more often hunted out of covetousness or spite than outright prejudice, so they typically develop social skills that allow them to soothe wounds caused by accidental slights or careless acts.

Svetochers have a +2 racial bonus to Strength and Charisma, a -2 penalty to Constitution, and a +2 racial bonus on Persuasion (when used for diplomacy) and Knowledge (World) checks. +2 Strength and Charisma, -2 Constitution, +2 Persuasion and Knowledge (World).

Nosferatu-Born (Ancient-Born)

Description

The union that results in an ancient-born is too horrific for most to imagine. Even in relative youth a nosferatu is so terrible to behold that any such coupling must be the result of arcane manipulation or insanity. Ancient-born's hatred for humanity is reflected in their appearance; from birth they are misshapen, sallow, and painfully thin. Abuse from their disgusted peers wears deep on ancient-born's skin thanks to their physical weakness. Lacking the gift of immortality to offset the wasting effect of the curse they are born with, their chalky complexion scars easily and bruises like an overripe peach.

Ability Score Bonus

Nosferatu-Born have a +2 racial bonus to Strength and Wisdom, a -2 penalty to Constitution, and a +2 racial bonus on Athletics and Lore (Nature) checks. +2 Strength and Wisdom, -2 Constitution, +2 Athletics and Lore (Nature).

Vampire King-Born (Sacred Ancestry)

Description

Dhampirs descended from the Vampire King are rare in the extreme. Incredibly beautiful but strikingly grim shades that straddle the line between humanity and vampirekind, sacred ancestry dhampirs are often single-minded loners intent on a specific goal.

Ability Score Bonus

Dhampira of sacred ancestry heritage have a +2 racial bonus to Strength and Intelligence, a-2 penalty to Dexterity, and a +2 racial bonus on Persuasion (when used for diplomacy) and Knowledge (World) checks.

Vetala-Born (Ajibachana)

Description

More often the result of curiosity or experimentation Than mating, the dhampir offspring of vetalas are born with sharp minds and are inclined to ask questions. Known as ajibachanas, they are forceful and precocious, but their progenitors' distaste for the devout is mirrored in their weakness around holy or unholy sites. Just like their vampire parents, ajibachanas yearn for knowledge and often engage in scholarly pursuits, but their mortality drives them to work harder and learn faster. In a few short decades, they might gain a better understanding of themselves and their accumulated knowledge than Their eternally childish parents ever could have.

Ability Score Bonus

Ajibachanas have a +2 racial bonus to Dexterity and Intelligence, a -2 penalty to Wisdom, and a +2 racial bonus on Stealth and Use Magic Device checks. +2 Dexterity and Intelligence, -2 Wisdom, +2 Stealth and Use Magic Device.

      If you are a dhampir you can use a wand needed for the lich mythic path to become a true undead it seems, I diddnt try it out but thats what it was hinting at, i'd be interested in knowing if anyone else has done that.

        "all dhampirs possess elongated incisors"

        Could someone fix this? The 'Advanced Race Guide' from whence this originates also goes on to describe that a dhampir "may inherit his father's lengthy canines", the inconsistency clearly suggesting that someone couldn't tell the difference between incisors and canines.

        Or is it to be believed that dhampirs are predominantly bucktoothed?
