A part-vampire is a being with both human and vampire traits. Part-vampires are therefore a type of half-breed, with human and vampire ancestors. They supposedly resemble a human but with subtle vampire traits such as mildly exaggerated fangs and pale skin. It is unknown whether they will inherit any vampire tenancies, (e.g. an aversion to sunlight). This has been confirmed because it is proved that vampires are related to humans since they are featured in the Ministry's Guidelines for the Treatment of Non-Wizard Part-Humans.
Singer Lorcan d'Eath is a part-vampire.
