"Evil creature that roams the night feeding on the blood of living beings. Cannot go out in the daylight."
—Description[src]

A vampire is a magical humanoid that is famed for biting people on the neck and sucking their blood.[4] They are part of the family of beings known as the Living Dead.[5]

Known vampires

Physical appearance

They are usually pale and gaunt[1] with sharp fangs for puncturing the throat.

Diet

Vampires have an aversion to garlic and can be kept at bay by its presence[10]. They drink blood, though they are able to eat things such as pasties[11], and Honeydukes sells lollipops that taste like blood, presumably for vampires to use[12].

Events involving vampires

  • Professor Quirinus Quirrell claimed to have had an encounter with vampires in the Black Forest during his break from teaching to get some "hands-on" experience with dealing with the Dark Arts. Whether this is true, or a cover to hide his encounter with Lord Voldemort in Albania, is unclear.[10]
    • Quirrell's story about a vampire is in some respect true, as Voldemort at the time was in a state between life and death, and himself admits that he was living parasitically off of the professor. This even includes making Quirrell drink the blood of unicorns from the Forbidden Forest.
  • Gilderoy Lockhart wrote a book, Voyages with Vampires, about his supposed encounters with vampires. The book included information on a vampire that, after an encounter with Lockhart, could eat nothing but lettuce.[13] As Lockhart merely took the credit for other wizards' accomplishments, this encounter was either entirely made-up, or occurred to someone else.
  • At Honeydukes, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger wonder what kind of sweets to get for Harry. Hermione rejects the blood-flavoured lollipops, saying that they must be for vampires.
