The Dhampir

Crossposted from my Instagram account (username spearkharier).

The #dhampir or #dhampyr is the half-breed child between a #vampire and a human. In Balkan myth, these babies usually die at birth but when they survive they grow up to be formidable #vampirehunters. As some of you know, I am getting ready to produce my first actual #indiefilm so my research has led me back to an audio book I narrated recently that talked about them.

The last alleged account of a vampire #exorcism by a dhampir was in 1958 Kosovo… however all of the books that talk about this only mention it as if they are just repeating each other like some weird form of #fakenews. I think I have managed to discover what the source of this story is. I will be trying to find that. If I find it, I will let you know!
