Vampire[1][2][3] or vampyr[4][5] are a type of undead[4][6] who drink blood[7] in order to sustain themselves. Up until the third invasion of the Burning Legion on Azeroth, knowledge of vampyr was mostly limited to the darkfallen. With the people of Azeroth flocking to the Broken Isles, Sir Finley Mrrgglton of the Explorers' League discovered an ancient vrykul vampyr in Stormheim who upon being woken up from his slumber by human pirates transformed them into vampires as well. This ancient vampyr, Blood-Thane Lucard, was killed by a Class Leader but Sir Finley Mrrgglton had his doubts as to whether vampyr can truly die.[4]

Pirate... vampires... pira-vamp... vampirates?
  • Blood-Thane Lucard, a vrykul vampyr, was discovered by Sir Finley Mrrgglton in Stormheim. His state was specifically compared to the darkfallen by Mrrgglton, who had long suspected that some vrykul had also been cursed like the blood elves.[4]
    • The Red Blade fleet of human pirates found the tomb of Blood-Thane Lucard in Dreyrgrot, who upon being woken up seeped out a mist from the ancient ruins,[8] transforming the pirates into blood-crazed vampires. Sir Finley Mrrgglton gave the order leader a sharp wooden stake to stab Lucard through the heart with, but it turned out to be ineffective.
