Fangborn are cultivated weapons created to track and counter the abilities of vampires, even moving about freely in the daylight. Created in much the same way as a dhampir is amongst human societies, fangborn are oft made intentionally. A female elf can give herself as a sacrifice should the need arise for the elves to find and end a vampire. This sacrifice is generally made through being turned while pregnant or through a nightlong dalliance with a vampire considered nonthreatening.
Fangborn have been ingrained to the sight, smell, the feel of blood in order to better track vampires. They are also very aware of the presence of vampires, and their natural elf resistances to enchantments and sleep make them apt hunters of the nocturnal princes.
Ability Score Racial Traits: Fangborn are lithe and winsome, but the frailty of elves is not lessened by the taint of the undead. They gain +2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma, and -2 Constitution.

Type: Fangborn are humanoids with the elf sub-type.
Mixed Blood: Fangborn count as elves and dhampir for any effect relating to race.
Base Speed: Fangborn have a base speed of 30 feet.
Vampire Senses: Fangborn gain a +2 racial bonus on Knowledge (religion) checks to identify vampires and can track vampires by scent. They are treated as though they have the scent quality but may only target vampires.
Bloodborne Frenzy: Once per day, fangborn may fly into a frenzy for 1 minute when the blood of a living creature within 30 feet is drawn. This is often the result of damage, an intentional drawing of blood, or bleed damage. Entering the frenzy does not take an action. While frenzying, fangborn gain a +2 racial bonus to Strength, a +10 foot bonus to their base movement speed, and a -2 penalty to their AC.
Blood Bound: Whenever fangborn are dealt bleed damage, they gain fast healing 2 for 1 round. Fangborn may never heal more than 2x his level in hp from blood bound per day.
