A half-Veela is a cross-breed between a human (normally a wizard or witch) and a Veela. It is unknown if Veela can breed with Muggles, and it is unlikely that a Muggle would ever learn of the existence of Veela, thus most or all half-Veela will inherit magical ability from their fathers.
Inheritance of Veela abilities
From their mother, they gain some Veela traits, such as breathtaking beauty and the ability to entrance men supernaturally. It is unknown if half-Veela are able to shape-shift into bird-like creatures as full Veela can.
Because they are half-breeds, half-Veela may experience the same prejudices that befall other half-breeds, though they are more difficult to detect than other half-breeds, such as Half-giants, because apart from their great physical beauty, they are otherwise identical to humans.
It is unknown if half-Veela or part-Veela can be male, with the same abilities of female part-Veelas. The only known male with Veela ancestry is Louis Weasley, who is one-eighth Veela through his mother.
