The character Blade was created in 1973 for Marvel Comics by writer Marv Wolfman and artist Gene Colan and was a supporting character in the 1970s comic Tomb of Dracula. In the comic, Blade's mother was bitten by a vampire while she was in labor with Blade. Thus, Blade was born with a natural immunity to the effects of vampirism, though he was otherwise human.
Blade can speak Czech, Russian and to a degree the Vampire language, and he has a great deal of knowledge about hunting vampires. He is a master of martial arts (probably a mixture of Karate, Kung Fu and Capoeira like Snipes) and weaponry ranging from his acid-etched titanium sword and glaive to a MAC-10 submachine gun. (See Weaponry of Blade)
Blade is stoic and a man of few words. He is a hardened vampire hunter. Though he is by no means irreverent toward life, and is a protector of humanity, he has only ever killed familiars and vampires, with the former counting to 1182 and the latter innumerable. His closest friend was Whistler, who raised him since he was 13, and he has romantic interests in the Blood Pack's Nyssa Damaskinos in the sequel.
