Upir (or opir) is a vampire species found in the Ukraine. It is quite similar to the Russian legend of the Upyr, or the Slavic Upior, or  the Byelorussian Upor.

In order to become a full Upir, said person must die from their own hand. Meaning suicide as stated by Olivia.




Upirs are indistinguishable from humans, found to be handsome or beautiful


Upirs have a cellular structure completely different from humans 

Upirs still produce waste, and  become pregnant

Full UpirEdit

Full-Upir, however, have abilities that are not possessed by half-Upirs,

  • Enhanced Super Strength -
  • Enhanced Healing Factor-


Upirs are reliant on human or synthetic blood, to satisfy their urges, they will die without enough. They most often can get blood from raw meat or bone marrow or simply directly from the source as seen by both Olivia and Roman.


Upirs are predatory creatures, and are far more brutal than their human appearance suggest. Although they can control themselves in a sophisticated and human manner, duress reduces them to a more feral state. For instance, if they don't drink blood.

Upirs are capable of human emotions, such as compassion, love, and self-control. However, often with age the older they get the less intense these emotions become.


Upirs are immortal, and do not physically age, remaining identical after reaching maturity in the discovery of their powers this may happen at differing ages, for instance, Roman reached full Upir status at 18 it is unknown when Olivia reached full Upir status but can be assumed due to her appearance to be in her late or mid thirties. The only noticeable effects of aging are that they become physically stronger with age, discovering new powers, although these can be self taught.
