Half human, half vampire, or a mixed descendant of a Dhampir and another race.  Dhampirs tend to have semi-pale skin and the color of their irises are divided diagonally, the top half is always blood red and the bottom is any available to the other race.  Dhampirs have a deep hatred for their vampiric parents and are more often than not shunned by humans and most other races.  If you are a dhampir a half-elf is always your best friend.  The two races have been allies since the dawn of the dhampir race.
