Noted for their distinctive, green teeth, merfolk vampires are cruel undead able to walk about on land in the form of a human or swim the oceans in the form of a shark in addition to their native, hybrid form. A typical merfolk vampire has a connection with fey beings as well as with death, possessing sorcerer levels and a fey bloodline. Though able to drink the blood and drain the energy of the living, merfolk vampires are neither compelled to do so nor driven to do so by hunger. They do, however, commit murder as a perverse form of entertainment.

A merfolk vampire's preferred method of dispatching a victim is drowning. Unless the vampire feels threatened enough to resort to spells and other powerful attacks, it attempts to lure its victims to the shore, grapple them, and drag them under the waves (or above the waves, in the case of aquatic victims). Since this tactic is ineffective against amphibious creatures such as merfolk, those beings are less likely to be targeted by merfolk vampires than creatures that breath only air or only water.
