A werepire is a cross between a werewolf and a vampire. Alternate spelling includes werepyre. You might also hear a werewolf-vampire hybrid referred to as a werevamp. Either reference – werepire or werevamp – is acceptable.
The senses of werepires are different from those of pure vampires or pure werewolves – one of the most notable differences is that these crossbreeds have a stronger sense of smell than either the werewolf or vampire. This is probably because both werewolves and vampires have a very keen sense of smell – a crossbreed therefore is predisposed to have an even stronger sense of smell.
