A vampire is a sinister creature that is feared by many wizards. They have an aversion to garlic and cannot bear its presence. They are, however, considered beings, but are so shady that centaurs and merpeople do not want to be classified as beings because of them. Despite this, there exist Vampire Hunters, people who professionally kill vampires; one wizard at the Quidditch World Cup claimed that he was one, even though paragraph twelve of the Guidelines for the Treatment of Non-Wizard Part-Humans specifically forbids such a thing.
Gilderoy Lockhart wrote a book called Voyages with Vampires concerning his experiences with vampires. Hermione Granger read this book, as it was necessary for that year's Defence Against the Dark Arts classes.
Around the Christmas season, Professor Remus Lupin assigned his third-year Defence Against the Dark Arts class an essay on vampires, which Neville Longbottom had difficulty with due to a misunderstanding about their aversion to garlic.
