Dampyr, based on the first two albums of the comic series created by Mauro Boselli and Maurizio Colombo (published by Sergio Bonelli Editore in 2000, now numbering 300 albums), is scripted by Mauro Boselli, Giovanni Masi, Alberto Ostini, and Mauro Uzzeo. It is set during the Balkan war, in the early 1990s, and follows the adventures of Harlan. Persecuted by horrible nightmares, Harlan makes ends meet by pretending to be a Dampyr (in Slavic mythology, a being half-human and half-vampire) capable of ridding villages of what the superstitious inhabitants naively believe to be terrible curses linked to the world of vampires. But when he is summoned by soldiers attacked by bloodthirsty creatures, Harlan discovers the truth: he really is a Dampyr. While trying to confront a terrible 'Master of the Night,' Harlan must learn to manage his powers and discover his origins. Accompanying him is a renegade vampire and a soldier seeking revenge.

The cast is international: Dampyr is embodied by Wade Briggs (the Still Star Crossed and Please Like Me series), Emil Kurjak by Stuart Martin (Army of Thieves, the series Jamestown and The Medici) and Tesla by Frida Gustavsson (Tigers [+see also:film reviewtrailerinterview: Ronnie Sandahlfilm profile], the series Vikings: Valhalla).
