Quincy Harker

Search for 'Quincy Harker' on Amazon


Powers:
Harker was a skilled inventor, having designed many unique and helpful armaments to battle vampires such as a silver-tipped whip, a vampire tracking device, and his wheelchair that was capable of firing poisoned wooden darts. Over time, he also built up a worldwide network of contacts and allies who assisted him in his battle against Dracula. England's Scotland Yard cooperated with him and the U.S. military was aware of Harker's expertise in the area of vampirism.

Bio:
Quincy Harker, the son of John and Mina Harker (the same couple mentioned in Bram SToker's novel "Dracula") was a wealthy Englishman who devoted his life and his fortune to destroying Dracula, a lifelong obsession fueled by the many monstrosities the vampire lord had committed against Harker and his family. Little is known about Harker's past except that he used his fortune to establish a world-wide network designed to destroy Dracula and that he used his considerable intelligence to design specialized weapons for use against vampires. Harker's activities achieved considerable success against Dracula, forcing him to flee England and seek refuge in remote parts of the world. However Harker's agents spanned the globe and they harassed Dracula wherever he went. Enraged, Dracula struck back in 1945 when he attacked Harker and his wife during an opera performance. As a result, Harker's legs were destroyed and his wife nearly died from blood loss inflicted by Dracula (TOD #33). Unfortunately, Mrs. Harker never recovered psychologically from the attack and ten years later, she committed suicide. At the funeral, Quincy promised his young daughter Edith that he would never let her become a vampire, a promise he would be unable to keep many years later when Dracula kidnapped Edith and turned her (TOD#13).

Harker persisted in his crusade against Dracula despite the injuries that confined him to a wheelchair. He continued to design new weapons against Dracula as well as to strengthen his world-wide network of vampire hunters. However time was not on his side and as Harker grew older. he found himself faced with the likelihood that Dracula would continue his bloody rampages long after Harker was dead. Several times Harker had slain Dracula only to see him somehow resurrected.

The onset of a heart ailment made Harker realize that he had little time left to destroy Dracula. Fortunately for Harker a course of events in which Dracula had lost and regained his vampiric abilities had left the vampire lord uncertain of himself and vulnerable. Harker siezed the moment and devised a deathtrap with which he hoped to achieve complete victory. He planted explosives around Dracula's Transylvania castle and confronted the vampire lord as he activated a timer that would destroy Dracula's ancient home. Harker impaled Dracula with a silver spoke from his wheelchair during a but deadly battle that saw Harker miraculously rise out of his wheelchair as he defeated his longtime foe. Despite Harker's victory, he was unable to achieve complete victory as the explosives destroyed the castle before Harker could sever Dracula's head.
