A type of Vampire from Bosnia. This creature lives the first part of its life as a man who transforms into a wolf at night to hunt. When it dies it resurrects itself as a Vampire who has the ability to transform into a wolf as and when it pleases. When Austrians took control of Bosnia from the Ottoman Empire in 1878, officials discovered multiple cases where people had been burnt at the stake for being found guilty of being a Lampir. The Lampir is similar to the Vulkodlac.
