This subject contains information from the Expanded Cthulhu Mythos, and not based on H.P. Lovecraft's works directly. The Haemovore are a species created by the BBC in 1989 for Doctor Who.


The Haemovores (Homo haemovorax) are vampiric humanoids that serve the Great Old One Fenric and feed on blood, humans being their food source. They are a possible future evolution of mankind, half a million years into the future. The inhabitants of a polluted Earth, mutated by its chemical slime, Haemovores possess great strength, are resistant to bullets, have razor-sharp claws, their hands can weld metal, they can easily climb sheer surfaces, and are able to survive in sea water. Psychic barriers can stop them and the only way to kill one is via a stake to the heart. They communicate with each other telepathically and are able to telepathically control humans. They only hunt in the mist or fog. Haemovores all began as humans whom were changed by other Heamovores. Once they are killed, they quickly decay into charred bones and slime.
