The Vampire is one of the eight character classes in Might and Magic VIII: Day of the Destroyer.

"Few choose to become Vampires, but those that do soon revel in the new powers granted them by their new form. In addition to their racial abilities, Vampires can also become powerful casters of Body, Mind and Spirit magic, and can gain great skill with bladed weapons. On the downside, they are limited in their choice of weapons and armor, and suffer certain specific penalties for being undead."

Vampires start with 30 hit points and 10 spell points, and gain 3 hit points and 2 spell points per level. They are immune to mind spells.
