CHARACTER INFORMATION
-
Erick Brooks, the man later known as Blade, was born in 1929. When his Mother was pregnant with him, she seeked out a doctor. Instead she found Deacon Frost, who was actually a ravenous vampire and feasted on the woman as she gave birth, passing on a series of enzymes that altered her baby. Blade survived the attack as half vampire, half human. Determined to avenge his Mother's death, he fashioned himself into a vampire hunter even before he reached adulthood. He served as a vampire hunter with several hunters for hire groups and government agencies.

HISTORY BREAKDOWN
-
Blade came to New Orleans to find a vampire by the name of Francois Chicault to kill him. Running into Gambit, who was looking for the same person, he immediately began fighting him assuming he was a vampire based on his eyes and the fact that they met in a cemetery at night. The two quickly figured out they were after the same thing and fought together to bring down the Antiquary's collection turned vampire coven. Once taken down they went their separate ways even though they do keep in contact to trade music.
