As far as a hybrid of werewolf/vampyre, that is difficult to say. Some do believe it is possible to be both.

In the strict folklore sense, the werewolf was a sorcerer who turned into a wolf, and the vampire was a blood sucking corpse with no mind that existed solely as a blight upon humanity.
In the case of the Vrykolakas, a werewolf in life could become a vampire in death.
But in reality, the movies are fake.Where These are genetic mutations whose traits can be passed down like X-men or Fae from Lost Girl or Underworld, and result in hybrid mutations of the two sub-classes of homosapien.
So no, in real life you can not get the horror cliche of the half vamp half wolf beastie.

As for your friend, it sounds like he just discovered Underworld and is pulling your leg.

Dude, didn't you ever wonder: if Lestat was real, flesh and undead bone, would he hang around a forum to answer your dumbass questions? I know the internet contains a lot of information, but this is just absurd. ...Or not. I guess I should be grateful he didn't ask if God was real. Jesus... Twilight fried a lot of bloody brains.

Why do I comment on the fact that there are no real vampires? Because the people who post these questions are always teenagers and usually young teens or even preteens and some of them can be naive. All it takes is for one kid to talk to the wrong person who claims to be a 'real' supernatural vampire or werewolf and agree to meet them and bam, you've got one dead kid on your hands. That or another rape statistic. People need to be careful about what they read on the internet and take everything with a grain of salt.
Do not believe anything anyone tells you on the internet, especially the impossible, without proof and since not a single person in all of existence has ever provided proof that vampires and werewolves exist then perhaps you should be the one to move along.

Peoples obsessions with lycanthropy and the belief they are connected to animal spirits is also fascinating without bringing a supernatural element into it. The myths are what are the most fascinating, and the causes of those myths. Most myths come from primitive peoples misunderstanding of the world around them and how they dealt with that lack of knowledge, especially when it came to death, the greatest fear and strongest taboo of them all.

Proof doesn't need to be out there for their to be proof of one's existence. This is the best I can do though. It's not the original site for the Black Veil, but It's close enough.

Correct me if I'm wrong but it sounds to me that you are claiming to be of the 'gentleman vampire' variety of vampires which is actually a fabrication created in the Victorian era, the first example being that of Varney the Vampire by Thomas Preskett and the most famous being of course Dracula by Bram Stoker. The Gentleman Vampire as I stated earlier was a metaphor for sexual desire and the act of drinking blood and being consumed was a metaphor for sex. Most vampires in modern fiction from The Vampire Chronicles to yes, even Twilight use this formula, usually because it provides a more dramatic, sympathetic character.
'Real' supernatural vampires however are nothing more than ghouls that crawl out of their graves at night in a mindless search for blood. They are walking corpses, not gallant creatures who wrestle with their consciences on whether or not it is right to kill humans for blood and live in torment because they are haunted by guilt over those they have killed in the past.
Traditional vampires were the result of such diseases as tuberculous which is a contagious wasting disease. One person would fall ill and die and soon members of their family would follow. No one understood that these people were dying from what would later be known as consumption, to them it was the work of a vampire who came back to feast on it's family, turning them into vampires as well. A notable case is that of Mercy Brown, the Rhode Island Vampire.
As for Galileo, his discoveries can be proven, he was after all a scientist. He sought out answers and found them, even if they were not accepted at the time by those obsessed with superstition. We can prove the world is not flat, that the earth revolves around the sun and that the earth is not the centre of the universe. His discoveries could be observed, something that cannot be done with vampires, werewolves etc. When and if that ever changes then of course science's understanding of the phenomenon will change as well.

If you scroll through the threads here, you will find links for various interviews, videos, etc. We've even interviewed some vamps here.
