Set during the late 1800s in the English Midlands, Dhampir is based on the gypsy legend that a male vampire could father children through a female mortal. The result produced a vampire hunter with all the extraordinary strength and abilities, but none of the vampire father's weaknesses. Born without a father, and having lost his mother when he was five, Caine Griffith is now 25. He is searching for clues to his life and unknown legacy, a legacy of terror, betrayal and revenge he never knew existed outside the safe confines of his home. During the reading of Caine's mother's Last Will and Testament, a stack of diaries surfaces to turn his world upside down. He questions his very existence. Where did he come from? Who is his father? And what is the connection of all this to the mysterious stranger killing townspeople in the most brutal way possible? What will his mother's diaries tell him about his past, his legacy and the father he never knew? Will he survive to find the answers to these questions, or will he also succumb to the stranger's violence before the mystery is solved?
