A vampire is a magical hominid that is well known for biting people on the neck and sucking their blood. They are part of a family of beings known as the Living Dead[3]. Little is known about them, though they have been widely integrated into Muggle literature.

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[4]. They drink blood, though they are able to eat things such as pasties[1], and Honeydukes sells lollipops that taste like blood, presumably for vampires to use[5]
