It was a dark and stormy night…
We’re rather fond of Halloween here at the Appreciation, and the approaching holiday gives us the perfect opportunity to discuss some of our favourite characters in a more Halloween-y light – that is to say, dark and mysterious, with thunderstorms raging outside and things going bump in the night. Fearless Admin and I had to work quite a bit to narrow our choices down, but we’ve finally decided on our favourite Probable Vampires and Vampire Slayers played by Mr. Malahide. Now, keep in mind that they’re only “Probable” because, of course, nothing has been proven conclusively.
Jack Turner | Edward Casaubon | Mr. Hastymite | Asst. Commissioner Henry |
Sir Hugo Carey-Holden | DS Albert Chisholm
RF: My choices are:
Type of Vampire:
Jack Turner: Being spattered with blood is
all in a night’s work
This is a bit tricky as not only does Jack seem to defy qualification as a crimelord, he’d defy it as a vampire as well. He’d be the type of vampire who wouldn’t care if everyone else knew he was a vampire and was shaking in their boots because of it. He’d also be the sort of vampire who has a hapless Renfield to clean up his various messes, because he wouldn’t want to be bothered with details like that. He probably wouldn’t even normally bother to clean up the mess, except that it might attract too much attention to him.
Does He Sparkle?
Peacocking, yes. Sparkling, no.
Oh heck, no! Haaaa! Although when he’s not sneaking around wearing all black for his mysterious nighttime errands, he does enjoy bright colours. But actual sparkling? No. Perhaps only in conversation if/when he’s trying to be particularly genial. I suspect Jack can be completely charming when he wants to be, especially if there’s something in it for him. He’d be particularly great at wangling an invitation into your house, which is what all vampires want.
