Vampires[1][2][3] or vampyr[4][5] are a type of undead[4][6] known to drink blood.[7] Up until the third invasion of the Burning Legion on Azeroth, knowledge of vampyr was mostly limited to the San'layn. 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 an order champion, though Mrrgglton had his doubts as to whether vampyr can truly die.[4]

Types

Captain Broketooth and the Red Blade were turned into vampyr by Lucard

San'layn

Stormheim

  • Blood-Thane Lucard, a vrykul vampyr, was discovered by Sir Finley Mrrgglton in Dreyrgrot in Stormheim. His state was specifically compared to the San'layn 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 Lucard, who upon being woken up seeped out a mist from the ancient ruins,[8] transforming the pirates into blood-crazed vampires.[9] Sir Finley gave the order champion a sharp wooden stake to stab Lucard through the heart with, but it turned out to be ineffective.
