For the character, see sire (character)
A vampire who has Embraced childe(r) and monitors their progress; Often seen as the "Parent" of a childe. [1]

A sire is a vampire that has Embraced a childe. The term is unisexual, applying to both male and female vampires. Alternatively, the term may apply to the Embrace itself.

The sire has the responsibility of raising his childe to become a good vampire. A bad childe is a reason for others to look down on the sire.
