Made Vampires
Made vampires are vampires who were originally humans (or witches) and were turned into vampires by exchanging blood with another vampire. Unlike lamia, they are frozen at the age they were turned and cannot have children. The process to become a made vampire is very risky; some people have been known to die or turn into ghouls (rotting, mindless, zombie-like creatures). Only young people can survive the transformation as well, meaning that the majority of made vampires are in their mid to late teens.

     Poppy North 

Poppy North

"The reality is that one way or another I'm going to die soon. And I'd rather die and wake up a vampire than die and not wake up at all."

The main protagonist of Secret Vampire. She is an ordinary teenager...until she's diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, prompting her best friend and soulmate James to offer to make her a vampire to save her.


  • Affectionate Nickname: Her father calls her Kilowatt or Eveready, whilst her mother calls her Poppet. Ash also nicknames her "little dreamer".
  • Afraid of Needles: Poppy hates getting injections, with James making a point of miming someone getting a big injection to mess with her.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Played with. She's attracted to James's 'wild' side, but also likes the more vulnerable and caring side that he only displays around her.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: As a little kid, she beat up a group of boys who were bullying James...then immediately extended friendship to him. If she feels threatened or that her loved ones are in danger, she can be downright vicious. After newly awakening as a vampire, she also initially struggles a bit with the bloodlust; she outright pounces on a poor homeless guy and begins gnawing on his neck, until James yanks her off and talks sense into her, and tried to take a bite out of her twin brother.
  • Black Comedy: After seeing how disturbed and grossed-out Phil is after she drinks vampire blood to stabilise herself for the transformation, she winks at him and says "Don't knock it till you've tried it".
  • Bully Hunter: She was this at the tender age of four, taking on several bigger boys at once in defense of James when she saw them picking on him.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With James. They first met in kindergarten.
  • Cute Bruiser / Little Miss Badass: As an adorable little kindergartner, she beat up a group of bigger boys who were bullying James to protect him. She generally continues this trend as a teenager.
  • Damsel out of Distress: When she realises Ash intends to hand her over to Thierry as an illegally made vampire, she begins fighting back despite him being physically stronger, tries to jump over the balcony they're standing on and also instinctively lashes out at him with her psychic abilities. This attracts the attention of James and Phil, who come to her assistance.
  • Death Faked for You: James and her brother Phil fake that she died of cancer to hide the fact she's become a vampire. She was in on it, but all she really needed to do was lie in a coffin until James dug her up and then make sure no one she knew saw her walking around; James and Phil did all the hard work.
  • Description in the Mirror: Does this in the first chapter of Secret Vampire, though it's kept brief.
  • Doomed Protagonist: "It was on the first day of summer vacation that Poppy found out she was going to die". Subverted, though, as she ends up becoming a vampire (who don't get cancer).
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: She dreams of meeting Ash before actually encountering him in person. The dream foreshadows Ash's attempt to turn her over to the Elders as a renegade vampire, and that she is actually a lost witch.
  • Emergency Transformation: After being diagnosed with terminal cancer of the pancreas, her best friend James (who happens to be a vampire) offers to turn her into a vampire too in order to save her. She agrees, figuring it's better than the alternative.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Averted. Poppy appears to be doing this from everyone else's perspective, but she's actually taking a gamble to potentially live on as a vampire and so can keep herself calm knowing she has a chance to fight. She states that if she knew she had no possible solution, she'd go out "kicking and screaming all the way".
  • Fanservice Pack: Lampshaded by Poppy herself. She wasn't bad-looking before, but after transforming into a vampire, she becomes even more beautiful in a wild, "rock star" way.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Downplayed with Phil, she being the 'Foolish' sibling. She mentions that she doesn’t take her studies nearly as seriously as her brother, prefers shopping and hanging out with her friends, and often uses what smarts she has to worm her way out of trouble with her teachers, whilst Phil is a model student and belongs to several school teams and clubs.
  • Friendly Neighbourhood Vampire: Strongly aspires to be this, suggesting to James that instead of hypnotising people to forget being bitten (which, whilst better than simply killing them, is still morally questionable), they should alternate between feeding on animals and taking blood from witches, who sometimes act as willing donors for vampires.
  • Genki Girl: She's usually very energetic and hyper, to the point where he dad nicknames her 'Kilowatt' and 'Eveready'. She becomes less vivacious due to falling gravely ill, but bounces back after becoming a vampire.
  • Gut Feeling: She often gets “hunches” about things that turn out to be right. It foreshadows that she’s actually a lost witch.
  • Heroic BSoD: She very understandably has one when she first learns she has pancreatic cancer and that there's nothing the doctors can do.
  • High-School Sweethearts: Up to Eleven with James (combined with Childhood Friend Romance). They're both vampires by the end of the first book and so will be together forever. They're fine with this, as they figure out they're soulmates and so were always destined to be together; Poppy actually tells James she knew she wanted to marry him someday right back when they were kids.
  • Ill Girl: In the first half of Secret Vampire. Played with, in that she isn’t suffering from a Soap Opera Disease; she’s explicitly stated to have pancreatic cancer, which is depicted realistically. The disease is also at a stage where it hasn’t left her completely immobilized, though it’s made clear it will be months, tops, when that finally happens. Poppy, however, focuses on trying to become a vampire to prevent her death and enjoying what time she has left as a human,; she only really starts lying around pitifully due to the side effect of the transformation, not necessarily her illness, which is depicted as an Out-of-Character Alert.
  • Instant Expert: She picks up telepathy after only a day or so of being a vampire, which James lampshades, and after an initial hiccup with Ash, also quickly learns how to block her mind from being read and attack people psychically, which both Ash and James comment on. This is actually a justified example, as she’s later revealed to be a lost witch and so already had latent powers she was unaware of, until becoming a vampire amplified them.
  • Interspecies Romance: With James (until she becomes a vampire herself).
  • It's Not You, It's My Enemies: When Ash tells her that James could get in serious trouble and possibly even be executed by the Night World for turning her without permission, Poppy willingly leaves the state with Ash to protect James, not knowing if or when she'll see him again.
  • Lineage Comes from the Father: She takes after her scatterbrained, conspiracy-theorist dad more than her mother, even stating she sometimes feels he's the only family member who truly understands her. After it turns out she's a lost witch, she deduces that she got it from her dad, as this explains some of his weird behaviour.
  • Littlest Cancer Patient: Technically, she's a teen, but she's described as being "small" and "pixie-like" and everyone is devastated when she gets diagnosed with terminal cancer.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Very much so for James (she's even compared to a pixie or elf in appearance). She's a rare example of this who is actually the main protagonist and has her own story arc and Character Development beyond her relationship with the Love Interest.
  • Meaningful Name: Poppies are flowers associated with sleep, recovery, rememberence of the dead, eternal life and resurrection, so it seems quite fitting for Poppy's character arc in the first book. As Ash notes, "Poppy" is also coincidentally a lamia name (they often choose names associated with the natural world) even though she herself is a made vampire although it turns out she was actually a lost witch all along.
  • The Napoleon: She has quite a fierce and exuberant personality and dislikes how her appearance, in particular her short stature, makes her look like a 'cute little pixie'. This lessens after she becomes a vampire; she notes that the physical changes brought on by the transformation make her look less 'cute' and more 'dangerously beautiful'.
  • Oh, Crap!: Upon realising Ash brought her to Vegas to turn her over to the Elders.
  • One True Love: To James. Although she hadn't actually heard of the Soulmate Principle until James explains it to her, she tells him that she'd known since she was a kid that she wanted to marry him and thinks it makes perfect sense.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Phil realises something really isn't right when Poppy begins behaving in an overly aggressive, irrational manner and going into denial about her illness, due to not completing a vital blood exchange with James. This convinces Phil to help James complete Poppy's transformation.
  • Patient Childhood Love Interest: To James. Upgrades to Victorious Childhood Friend towards the end of Secret Vampire.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: After becoming a vampire, she's strong enough to knock down and overpower a grown man with little effort, despite her small stature.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: Subverted; Poppy states that some people think of her and James as being this (and it perhaps was the case back when they were little kids), but she's actually secretly in love with him. James eventually admits he feels the same way and they get a Relationship Upgrade.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: With Phil. They don't look much alike, he being tall and blonde, whilst she's a short redhead. Phil is also generally very levelheaded, sensible and logical, whilst Poppy is very lively, carefree and tends to follow her heart more so than her head.
  • The Pollyanna: She's usually quite cheerful and enthusiastic, and always tries to find the positives in every situation. This is somewhat deconstructed early in Secret Vampire, as she ignores the pains she has been getting in her abdomen out of determination not to let sickness 'ruin' her summer vacation...until it gets so bad she nearly collapses in her kitchen. It gets reconstructed too, though, as her positive attitude helps her cope with her cancer diagnosis and becoming a vampire.
  • Precision F-Strike: When James first tells her he's a vampire, shortly after she told him she was going to die from cancer, she understandably thinks he's playing a sick joke and flips out, yelling that he's a "Bastard!"
  • Protagonist Title: She’s the titular ‘secret vampire’ of the first book.
  • Quirky Curls: Has this hairstyle, combined with Stubborn Hair, reflecting her inner stubbornness and vivacity.
  • Rise from Your Grave: Defied. James goes to great lengths to ensure this doesn't happen to Poppy; he puts her into a deep sleep and tells her she'll only wake when he sends her a telepathic message. He and her brother Philip sneak into the cemetery the night after her funeral and dig up her coffin to let her out (which realistically takes a while, even with James being a vampire).
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: The Energetic Girl to James' Savvy Guy.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: Described as having bright green eyes and copper coloured hair, and is the main protagonist of Secret Vampire.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Even before finding out they were soulmates, she was never romantically interested in anyone but James, and by age sixteen one of her life goals is to eventually marry him. After Ash tricks her into leaving James to protect him and she believes they'll never see each other again, she shuts him right down when he tries to put the moves on her and declares she'll never love - or even want to love - anyone but James, as long as she lives (seeing as she's a vampire at this point, that's a pretty long time).
  • Teens Are Short: Poppy is noted to be quite short. However, her twin brother is said to be tall (which Poppy thinks is just plain unfair).
  • Took a Level in Badass: After becoming a vampire.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: She briefly takes one due to being emotionally unbalanced by the vampire transformation, becoming a lot more short-tempered and aggressive. She's back to her old self once she exchanges blood with James again.
  • Tragic Dropout: She is forced to drop out of high school (and may never get to go to college or university) due to having to fake her death. She admits she was never very academically-inclined in the first place, but she actually expresses regret about this, wishing she'd tried harder in school.
  • Tsundere: Can be a bit of one to James at times (her default being "dere, dere"). In one notable example, James tells her not to worry about him, prompting Poppy to snap "Don't tell me what to worry about!"
  • Unwitting Muggle Friend: To James for most of their lives, until he spills the beans to save her from cancer. After getting over her initial shock, Poppy admits to herself that in hindsight a lot of things about James now make sense. It also turns out she herself was unknowingly not entirely a muggle either.
  • Was It All a Lie?: To James, upon Phil's fight with him and accusation that he's just using her.
  • What Have I Become?: Her reaction when she sees her reflection as a vampire for the first time; she's especially freaked out by her eyes turning silvery. However, she quickly comes to terms with it:
    "She leaned forward to examine her teeth, poking at the canines to make them grow. Then she jerked back, gasping. Her eyes. She hadn't realized. Oh, God, no wonder Phil had been scared. When she did that, when her teeth extended, her eyes went silvery-green, uncanny. Like the eyes of a hunting cat. All at once she was overcome by terror. She had to cling to the sink to stay on her feet. I don't want it, I don't want it....Oh, deal with it, girl. Stop whining. So what did you expect to look like, Shirley Temple? You're a hunter now. And your eyes go silver and blood tastes like cherry preserves. And that's all there is to it, and the other choice was resting in peace. So deal."
  • Your Days Are Numbered: Early in the story, she overhears her doctors telling her mother and Cliff that she has terminal cancer and will probably only survive to the end of summer, at most. And that it will probably be debilitatingly painful and all they can really do is offer her palliative care. Upon learning from James that he can save her by turning her into a vampire, she weighs her options and then decides it's worth the risks and sacrifices if she gets a chance to keep living.
  • Youthful Freckles: She has "four and a half" freckles on her nose and is the epitome of a carefree, fun-loving teenager. After getting diagnosed with terminal cancer, becoming a vampire and having to leave behind almost everything she loves to start a new life, she mentally matures a lot and her freckles simultaneously disappear as a side effect of becoming one of the undead.

     Thierry Descouedres 

Thierry Descouedres

One of the oldest vampires in the world, turned by Maya in the Stone Age. He is a Night World Elder and the soulmate of Hannah. He's also one of the founders and co-leaders of Circle Daybreak.


  • Artifact Alias: His original name is Theorn, though he’s gone by many other names over the years to blend in better. However, he’s primarily referred to by his current name of Thierry, both by himself and by people who know his real identity.
  • The Atoner: Swore never to kill again after he inadvertently slaughtered a Stone Age tribe, including the original incarnation of his soulmate, Hannah and does other good deeds in the hopes of redeeming himself.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: To an extent. He states that when he was still mortal, he had "a vague longing to see the world". In a way, he gets his wish, getting to spend eternity travelling the world in search of his lost love and hiding the fact he doesn't age.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: When he was captured and imprisoned by the Three Rivers Tribe, Hana was practically the only tribe member who showed him compassion and spoke up for him. She even tried to help him escape, offered him food and water, and finally even her own blood when she realized he was unable to eat anything else. Although he already felt a connection to her due to the Soulmate Principle, her kindness to him cements their bond. Unfortunately, this didn't stop him from killing her during his bloodlust-induced rampage. However, realizing he's mortally wounded Hana snapped Thierry out of it, and her forgiveness of him led him to seek a different path besides becoming a monster like Maya. Subsequently, he also spends centuries trying to track her down in every one of her lives and protect her from Maya.
  • Being Tortured Makes You Evil: Subverted and defied. After being tortured by the Three Rivers tribe he temporarily snapped and massacred almost all of them. However, he eventually came back to his senses and was horrified by his actions. He briefly considered just giving in and embracing being a monster, but in the end he refused to abandon his morals and remained a mostly good person.
  • Benevolent Boss: He generally treats his subordinates with courtesy and respect and will go out of his way to help them; in return, they are undyingly loyal to him.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: As generous and good-hearted as Thierry is, you do not want to get him mad.
  • Big Good: Revealed to be this to Circle Daybreak.
  • Break Them by Talking: Does this to Maya in the climax of Soulmate, resulting in her Villainous Breakdown.
  • Broken Pedestal: Towards Maya. He once admired and cared for her, and it's even implied he may have had romantic feelings for her. However, his view of her is completely shattered when he learns she murdered children to become immortal. Her subsequent atrocities, some of which involve him personally or those he cares for, cement his hatred for her.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: With Hannah.
  • Cradling Your Kill: Did this to Hannah after accidentally killing her in the Stone Age.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He was violently turned into a vampire against his will, which was only the beginning of his troubles. Then there was his far from friendly encounter with the tribe of the Three Rivers, which ended with Thierry going crazy with bloodlust after being tortured by them and practically wiping them out. And this isn't even getting into his problems with his soulmate...
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: His flashback of the night Maya turned him into a vampire makes it disturbingly reminiscent of a sexual assault.
  • Easily Forgiven: Hana forgave him very quickly for killing her and almost her whole tribe. To be fair though, it's implied it's because she knows he never meant to do it and he's clearly distraught. She also makes him promise never to kill again, which he instantly takes to heart.
  • Eternal Love: The most prominent example in the series. Due to him being a vampire and Hannah being reincarnated repeatedly, they have been in love for over ten thousand years and will likely continue to be in love forever.
  • Frame-Up: Has been a victim of this, courtesy of Maya, for thousands of years.
  • Friendly Neighbourhood Vampire: He's known as 'Saint Thierry' for his benevolence and the fact he hasn't taken a life since the Stone Age.
  • Good All Along: It turns out that Maya, not Thierry, has been stalking and killing Hannah, tricking her into believing it's Thierry.
  • G-Rated Sex: While making out with Hannah, she desires to be more intimate with him; however, she doesn't feel ready for sex. Instead, she gets Thierry to bite her and drink her blood, allowing them to link minds.
  • Guy of My Dreams: Played with. Hannah dreams of him before actually meeting him in her current life, but had met him in her previous incarnations.
  • Has a Type: Before he met his soulmate, Thierry seemed to have a crush on Hellewise. They're both attractive blondes who are deeply compassionate, forgiving and Wise Beyond Their Years. In fact, Hannah actually reminds Thierry of Hellewise in many ways. Of course, he also apparently had a bit of a crush on Maya as well, who is nothing like either Hellewise or Hannah in appearance or personality.
  • Happily Married: In Witchlight Hannah is referred to as ‘Lady Hannah’, implying he has married her. Word of God also confirms this.
  • Hurting Hero: He's often brooding and melancholy, with a few characters commenting on how sad his eyes look. Considering his backstory, it's not all that surprising.
  • I Gave My Word: The reason he doesn't just kill Maya (even though it would probably make everything much easier) is because he swore to Hannah never to kill.
  • I Hate You, Vampire Dad: He has nothing but contempt for Maya, who made him into a vampire.
  • I Let Gwen Stacy Die: Up to Eleven. His soulmate has been murdered dozens of times (luckily, she keeps coming back) and he blames himself for all of it. And her first death technically was his fault.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Hannah.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: When Hannah tells him to go away and never bother her again, he does just that, despite his deep love for her, because her happiness is more important to him. He comes back in the end though to save her from Maya, by which point Hannah most definitely wants him to stay.
  • Love Martyr: To Hannah for most of Soulmate; she spends a large chunk of the book threatening, insulting and screaming at him to stay away from her despite him being perfectly kind and reasonable; he also goes to great lengths to protect her and even saves her life on at least one occasion. Nothing she can say or do will even remotely dent his love for her. In Hannah's defense, she does spend most of the story believing he'd been stalking and planning to murder her since prehistory and she feels terrible when she realises Thierry is innocent. And she's put up with a lot from him too including him accidentally killing her.
  • Mayfly–December Romance: Played with. He is in love with Hannah, who is nearly 17 during the events of Soulmate, whilst he's thousands of years old. But, as an Old Soul, Hannah has been reincarnated every time she dies and her original incarnation was born in the Stone Age, technically making her around the same age as Thierry.
  • Meaningful Name: Thierry is the French form of Theodoric, meaning "ruler of the people", an appropriate name for a vampire Elder and Rebel Leader.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After going into a bloodlust and killing almost an entire tribe, including his soulmate.
  • My Greatest Failure: He arguably regards accidentally killing Hannah's original incarnation and the rest of her tribe as this, as well as failing to stop Maya from killing her in her other lives.
  • Non-Idle Rich: He's absolutely rolling in it and uses his money to fund Circle Daybreak and try to find his lost love Hannah.
  • The Older Immortal: He was the second vampire in existence, born in the Stone Age.
  • Older Than They Look / Really 700 Years Old: Thierry was turned into a vampire at age 19, several thousand years ago, and hasn't aged a day.
  • One True Love: To Hannah.
  • Pretty Boy: He's described as being tall and "beautiful", with a "well-made" face, "lithe" body, pale blonde hair, soulful dark eyes and a pensive - even melancholy - air about him.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Threatening his soulmate. When Maya alludes to having possibly harmed her, he goes from relatively calm and controlled to violently furious in seconds - the only thing that stops him from killing her in the middle of a hotel lobby is not upholding The Masquerade, but his vow against killing.
  • Rebel Leader: He founded and co-leads the reformed Circle Daybreak.
  • Reincarnation Romance: With Hannah.
  • Rise from Your Grave: Thierry recalls digging himself out of his own grave after awakening as a vampire. Given he was turned in the Stone Age, he didn't have a coffin and was simply buried under dirt at the back of his tribe's cave, so he just has to dig his way out. Vampires are also preternaturally strong. It still wasn't pleasant for him, though, or for the shocked mourners.
  • Romantic Vampire Boy: Tries and eventually succeeds in being this to Hannah.
  • Ship Tease: With Hellewise, although it ultimately doesn't go anywhere. Given that the family tree and fanguide state she married Thierry's brother, this may add an element of Settle for Sibling.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Comes across as this towards Hannah, allegedly making her fall in love with him, then killing her in each of lives. Later subverted, as it turns out that Thierry only follows Hannah to try and protect her from Maya, the real killer who's been framing him, and his love for Hannah is genuine.
  • Sympathetic Murder Backstory: Revealed to have this, which deeply affects him and is a driving factor behind many of his actions even thousands of years later. See Sympathetic Murderer below for details.
  • Sympathetic Murderer: It turns out that the only time Thierry harmed anyone was when he slaughtered an entire village in prehistoric times. However, his judgement was heavily impaired at the time: he was a newly made vampire, suffering from bloodlust and was being tortured by the tribe who had captured him and refused to release him. He snapped and killed them in a thirst-induced frenzy. When he came to his senses, he was horrified and swore never to kill again and tries to make amends for the next ten thousand years or so.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: He has vowed never to kill anyone because it was Hannah's original incarnation's final request.
  • Token Good Teammate: For the Night World Elders, being by far the most benevolent and reasonable of them. Late in the series it's revealed he's formally switched sides and become the Big Good.
  • Vampire Monarch: He's a vampire Elder, which is more or less the equivalent of royalty in the Night World. He is often addressed as "Lord Thierry" and is very wealthy and influential. He comes across as The Good King.
  • Vampires Are Rich: He owns a mansion in Las Vegas (and is implied to run part of the city), casually triples his driver's salary, throws swanky parties every summer solstice and funds Circle Daybreak. Justified, in that he's had plenty of time to accumulate his wealth.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Well, only one in particular. And given how much of a twisted, manipulative psycho she is, it's probably justified in this case.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Played with. When he was a newly made vampire, he fed off Hana's young cousin. However, he wasn't fully in control of himself and was horrified by what he had done. When he's in his right mind, he wouldn't even contemplate doing such a thing.

     Timmy 

Timmy

Rashel Jordan’s Childhood Friend, who she saw being fed on and seemingly killed by a vampire when she was five years old.
  • Adult Fear: As a four year old, he was lured away from his friend by a vampire whilst attending her birthday party, was fed on by the vampire and then completely vanished. His parents Never Found the Body and seeing as Rashel is assumed to have made up the part about the vampire due to trauma, they never find out what 'really' happened (though the truth isn’t much better).
  • Ambiguous Disorder: There's clearly something off about him. The fact he’s stuck in a four year’s body whilst actually being a teenager probably has a lot to do with it, along with the trauma of being attacked, kidnapped and subjected to over a decade of brainwashing by his captor. Rashel isn’t sure if he will ever be able to recover from what was done to him, though she takes him to Circle Daybreak to try and get him help.
  • Awful Truth: In the climax of The Chosen, Rashel is horrified to learn that Timmy didn’t die twelve years ago, but was abducted by Hunter, turned into a vampire – and so is now frozen at the age of four – and twisted him to hate Rashel and treat humans as prey.
  • The Cameo: It’s strongly implied that he was the child-looking vampire seen at Thierry’s solstice party in Secret Vampire.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: If he was indeed the child vampire Poppy sees in Secret Vampire, his survival and fate was foreshadowed four books before he was properly introduced as a character in The Chosen.
  • Complaining About Rescues They Don't Like / Unwanted Rescue: When Rashel grabs him and drags him out of the burning mansion, he kicks, struggles and screams at her, demanding to know why she took him out. He eventually calms down, though, after Rashel replies “Because my mom told me to look after you.
  • The Corruptible / Corruption of a Minor: Seeing as he was a naïve four year old, he didn’t stand a chance against Hunter Redfern’s manipulations.
  • Creepy Child / Undead Child: He’s permanently four years old in appearance due to Hunter making him a vampire, but Rashel states there’s “too much knowledge” in his eyes, he being chronologically around sixteen/seventeen years old. Due to the way Hunter warped his mind, he behaves in an insanely creepy manner.
  • The Cutie: He was a genuinely sweet and shy little boy, who looked up to Rashel as a Cool Big Sis. Which makes The Reveal of what happened to him all the worse.
  • Disney Death: He was apparently killed by the vampire that attacked him at Rashel’s birthday, though they Never Found the Body. As it turns out, he’s alive, though considering what has happened to him, this isn’t necessarily much better.
  • Like Brother and Sister: He and Rashel were like this as kids (to the point where a lot of readers mistakenly believe they’re actually siblings – it doesn’t help that they’re both described as having black hair).
  • The Resenter: Hunter has conditioned him to despise Rashel, his childhood friend, and he blames her for ‘abandoning’ him.
  • Stockholm Syndrome: He seems to have this towards Hunter, who treats him like a son. This is the same guy who attacked him, stole him from his family and friend and basically ruined his life – seeing as he has lived with Hunter since he was four, he genuinely seems to believe Hunter is the only one who cares about him.
  • Walking Spoiler: His character reveals huge spoilers for The Chosen seeing how his survival is a big Plot Twist at the end.

     John Quinn 

John Quinn

"I'm faster than any human. I'm stronger than any human. I can see better in the dark. And I'm much, much nastier."

The secondary protagonist / Anti-Villain of The Chosen. He is the unofficial adopted son of Hunter Redfern and works closely with the family. His soulmate, ironically, turns out to be a Vampire Hunter, Rashel.


  • Abusive Parents: A case could be made for his dad seeing as he tried to kill him simply for being a vampire even after he came to him for help. His surrogate father Hunter isn't much better, seeing how he made him into a vampire without bothering to ask him first.
  • Amazon Chaser: He’s very impressed by Rashel’s fighting skills and determination.
  • Anti-Villain: He appears to be a cross between a Noble Anti-Villain and Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds. He eventually develops into a Pragmatic Hero.
  • Badass Longcoat: Wears one briefly.
  • Battle Couple: With Rashel.
  • Became Their Own Antithesis: For centuries, he's been a loyal servant of the Redfern family who despises humans. By the end of The Chosen, he's fallen in love with a human vampire hunter, no less, helps rescue the human girls he kidnapped in the first place and becomes a Daybreaker, who are dedicated to peace and harmony with humans.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: He's said to have very dark-coloured eyes and is definitely not a Friendly Neighbourhood Vampire...at first.
  • Breaking the Bonds: He slowly manages to break out of a pair of wooden handcuffs after being captured by the Lancers. He actually informs Rashel that he's going to break out of them sooner or later, and that she had better hurry up and kill him before that happens.
  • Broken Pedestal: Eventually to Hunter Redfern after he discovers he's behind the blood feast, despite it being against the laws he himself champions, and that he killed the family and best friend of his soulmate and tried to kill her simply For the Evulz.
  • Byronic Hero: Particularly in The Chosen, though it's hinted at earlier. He has a rather dark and twisted personality, but also a lot of unresolved emotional pain and trauma over his Dark and Troubled Past, has experienced loss and rejection, has no real loved ones, becomes deeply conflicted over his place in the world and comes to be viewed sympathetically by the protagonist Rashel. He's also quite handsome, snarky and a vampire, to boot.
  • Creepy Good: Even after his Heel–Face Turn and joining Circle Daybreak, Hannah finds there's something unsettling about him.
  • Daddy Issues:
    • He never quite saw eye to eye with his father, who was a Puritan minister which got even worse when his dad tried to kill him for being a vampire and killed his innocent fiancee. He regards Hunter as a surrogate father, but has a somewhat love-hate relationship with him seeing as he made him a vampire without his consent and completely loses any respect he had for him after finding out he's nothing but a murderous Hypocrite.
    • His hatred of humans is also rooted in personal tragedy; he despises humans because his father rejected and tried to kill him after he was made a vampire (which Quinn hadn't even consented to), and also killed Quinn's vampire betrothed, Dove, who was no threat to humans.
  • Dating Catwoman: His soulmate is Rashel, the main protagonist of The Chosen. He partly ends up defecting to Circle Daybreak because of her. Ironically, Rashel compares herself to Catwoman early in the novel, unaware she'd end up more like her than she thought.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Loves doing this.
  • Defecting for Love / Defector from Decadence: He ends up turning against Hunter and the Night World in general and joins Circle Daybreak to be with Rashel, although he was already shown to have begun doubting his role within the Night World as it was.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Gender inverted, after he meets Rashel.
  • The Dragon / Number Two: To Lily Redfern in The Chosen.
  • The Dreaded: At the beginning of the series. Because of his reputation for being cold-blooded and emotionless, he was feared by vampire and human alike. Ash (who's not the friendliest of vampires himself) is uncomfortable around him in Daughters of Darkness, and even the fact that Quinn came with Ash to find Ash's sisters scares all three girls.
  • Driven to Villainy: Quinn's traumatic transformation into a vampire is pretty much the direct reason he embraced villainy. It's revealed he was turned against his will by Hunter, at the age of just seventeen (leaving him stuck that way forever) when he asked to marry his daughter. After panicking and fleeing, he decided to go to his father for help and persuaded Dove to come with him. Unfortunately, Quinn's father murdered Dove and tried to kill him as well before the Redferns rescued him. Quinn, unable to bear the grief and guilt over Dove's death and realising that people now saw him as a monster for things beyond his control, decided he'd give humans a damn good reason to be afraid of him.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Has pale skin, black hair and black eyes and comes across as a bit creepy at times.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: As cold and merciless as he is at first, especially to humans, he is privately shown to have become increasingly disturbed and conflicted over his role in Lily's human slave ring, not just because it breaks Night World law, but on moral grounds; he at one point thinks outright to himself that none of the girls deserve what is going to happen to them. This, coupled with his rapidly growing feelings for Rashel, prompt a Heel–Face Turn.
  • Forced Sleep: Is quite adept at using mind control on humans to induce this. Rashel actually compares the feeling to "a karate blow".
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: He went from a lowly minister's son to one of the most feared vampires in the Night World and right-hand man to the Redferns.
  • Fully-Embraced Fiend: Played with. After getting over the initial shock, he fully embraced vampirism and the Night World, feeling nothing but contempt for humans despite having been one himself not long ago. This is largely because of the events surrounding his transformation and by The Chosen he's also starting to have feelings of guilt and doubt about his attitude towards humans.
  • The Heavy: In The Chosen, he's the one doing most of the villains's hard work (that we see on-page), though Lily or rather Hunter as it turns out is the true Big Bad.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: He seems to have this opinion, along with viewing them as vermin and a general waste of space besides being a food source, openly stating he despises humans on a number of occasions. However, The Chosen suggests this view is not all-encompassing, as he starts to feel compassion towards Rashel and the kidnapped girls. In the end, he changes his mind about humans, also realising he was making many of them out to be worse than they are to excuse or justify his own behaviour.
  • I Let Gwen Stacy Die: He at least partly blames himself for being unable to protect Dove from his father.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Rashel. And previously with Dove as well.
  • Last-Name Basis: Only Rashel calls him "John".
  • Lean and Mean: He's described as being "lithe" and "compact", though he loses the 'mean' part by the end of The Chosen.
  • A Match Made in Stockholm: With Rashel. They first meet when she helps the Lancers capture him for information on the kidnapped girls. He later kidnaps her as well, though he was initially unaware they were the same person.
  • Mayfly–December Romance: With Rashel - she's 17, he was born in the 1600's.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Seems to have this attitude towards the Redferns, at least initially. In the end, though, his conscience wins out and he turns on them.
  • Not So Different: To Rashel in The Chosen. Both have spent most of their lives hating a different species because of personal tragedy— Rashel hated vampires because a vampire killed her mother, and Quinn hated humans because his human father killed his fiancee—and in turn have killed quite a few people from the side they hate, all the while justifying their actions because of the aforementioned tragedies experienced. Though when they realize this they decide to put aside their hatred once and for all.
  • Older Than They Look / Really 700 Years Old: He was born in the 1600's, but hasn't aged past seventeen.
  • Romantic Vampire Boy: Eventually to Rashel. Originally, Dove was a Romantic Vampire Girl to him.
  • Sanity Slippage: From everyone else's perspective, this seems to be happening to him in the second half of The Chosen, as he becomes increasingly blasé and even deranged in his manner, seemingly completely uncaring about what happens to him. This is due to a crisis of conscience in regards to the slave ring and his Angst over his growing feelings for Rashel. He is even apparently prepared to let Rashel kill him, but he snaps out of it after he and Rashel realise they're soulmates.
  • Sarcastic Confession: One of his tactics to lure the girls at the Crypt club.
  • Scars Are Forever: He still has a scar on his side from a fire-hardened stake, which he received back in the 17th century when his father tried to kill him.
  • Settle for Sibling: Defied. After Dove’s death, he bluntly turned down an offer to marry one of her sisters.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: When he was human, the only girl he ever had interest in was Dove Redfern. This continued even after she died…at least until he meets Rashel.
  • Starcrossed Lovers: He's a vampire, Rashel's a vampire hunter.
  • Stockholm Syndrome: Towards Rashel a bit, partly due to their soulmate bond, and partly because he admires her sense of honor (she intended to Mercy Kill him to spare him from being brutally tortured, against the wishes of his other captors).
  • Sympathy for the Hero: He comes to sympathise very strongly with Rashel in The Chosen, especially when he learns they're Not So Different.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: Fits this to a tee...well, except for the 'tall' part (Quinn is about average height).
  • Took a Level in Kindness: At the end of The Chosen highlighted when he risks his own life to go back into a burning building to save Nyala, despite the fact she tried to kill him and everyone else in the building.
  • Villain Cred: Quinn has a reputation for being 'the vampire that other vampires fear'. Ash Redfern is actually uncomfortable around him, as he's far worse than he could ever hope to be, in Spellbinder Blaise Harman suggests getting Quinn to kill Eric Ross, saying he'd have no problem with it and Quinn himself claims to have done things which would shock Hunter Redfern or possibly not, considering he doesn't actually realise just how evil Hunter is. Even Rashel and the Lancers are surprised when they recognize Quinn as the vampire they captured.
  • Villainous Crush: Very quickly develops one on Rashel, due to their soulmate bond. He attempts to turn her into a vampire to avoid breaking Night World law and to keep her safe, but she's able to talk him out of it and he has a Heel–Face Turn soon after.
  • Villainous Rescue: He saves Rashel from a werewolf Mook and then allows her to knock him out, effectively saving the kidnapped girls as well, Rashel having been in the process of rescuing them.
  • Villain Protagonist: Despite blatantly being a bad guy throughout most of The Chosen, he gets almost as much focus and development as Rashel, and is also her Love Interest. He has a Heel–Face Turn near the end and becomes a straight-up protagonist alongside Rashel.
  • When He Smiles: When Quinn genuinely smiles, it's described as "beautiful", though also "slightly unnerving" to some.
  • Worthy Opponent: Seems to view Rashel as one before their Relationship Upgrade.

     Maya 

Maya

The very first vampire in existence and twin sister to Hellewise. Her son, Red Fern, was the first lamia and founder of the Redferns.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Maya's demise is treated with a degree of tragedy; even her archenemies seem distressed by her death, with Hannah asking if there's any way to help her. Maya is completely shocked that Hannah went through with killing her and although she's not especially sympathetic, it's still depicted as rather sad that she had basically wasted centuries of her life for very little payoff and that it actually directly resulted in her death.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: There's something clearly off about her. She shows a lot of symptoms of a few specific disorders, particularly:
  • Ambition Is Evil: Her Start of Darkness began when she set out on her quest to become immortal...no matter what it takes. She later tells Thierry she intends to create a new immortal race (the vampires) who will be "better" than the witches and take over the world, presumably with her as their ruler. Her ambition also drives her to try and kill her own sister to seize control of the witch clans when they oppose her.
  • And There Was Much Rejoicing: When she finally gets killed, everyone in Circle Daybreak celebrates and rushes to congratulate Hannah Snow, the one responsible for offing her. Ironically, the only person who doesn't feel like celebrating is Hannah herself; she's mostly just overwhelmed by everything that has happened to her and doesn't feel especially heroic or praiseworthy about killing someone. She even pities Maya and futilely tries to help her in her dying moments.
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: Does this to Thierry in the climax of Soulmate. Thierry, however, dismisses this, due to the centuries worth of abuse she's put him and his loved ones through.
  • Arch-Nemesis: To Thierry and Hannah (though the latter isn't made fully aware of this until mid-way through Soulmate).
  • Bad Boss: Is apparently one to her minions. She’s eventually sold out by a werewolf Mook who “wasn’t happy with the way she treated him”, allowing Circle Daybreak to find her hideout and rescue Hannah.
  • Beauty Is Bad: She's described as being one of the most beautiful people Hannah and Thierry have ever seen, but is bad to the bone, even using her unearthly beauty to lure victims and catch them off-guard. Thierry sums it up pretty well, describing her beauty as being like "the rainbow on oil scum". In sharp contrast, her twin sister was lovely inside and out.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted. When she is fatally staked, she quickly mummifies, leaving her a withered husk.
  • Big Bad: Of Soulmate.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Well, only to Hannah. Everyone else knew she was bad news.
    • It's hinted that she was this to her sister, Thierry and the rest of the tribe back in the Stone Age, as they were genuinely shocked when they discovered what she'd done to achieve immortality.
  • Cain and Abel: Is the exact of opposite of her twin sister, Hellewise, and tried to kill her to usurp control of their tribe (Hellewise won the battle and drove Maya away, but died of her injuries later on).
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: To Thierry. Dear, God, to Thierry.
  • Contralto of Danger: She’s described as having a “husky” voice and incredibly dangerous.
  • Dark Action Girl: Downplayed, as we never actually read about her fighting in her actual appearances, but she fought Hellewise in the past and presumably fought in the initial war with the witches too. It's also hinted she may have fought in the war between the witches and the dragons.
  • Dark Is Evil: She has dark hair, in contrast to her sister Hellewise, who has golden hair. She's also known for wearing black.
  • Deliver Us from Evil: Nope. She intentionally impregnated herself with Red Fern, in the hopes of passing on her vampirism and furthering her Evil Plan to expand her new species and take over the world.
  • Determinator: To an insane degree. See also Stalker Without a Crush.
  • Entitled to Have You: Towards Thierry; when he rejects her the first time, she states that because she "chose" him, he belongs with her by default.
  • Evil Aunt: Was likely one to Hellewise's daughter.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: She is genuinely bewildered when Hannah doesn't go through with stabbing her in the back. She wonders if it's because of her past life when she was a Buddhist or if she's "just weak"...before deciding it doesn't much matter.
  • Evil Matriarch: To the Redfern family (and by extension the entire vampire species). Ironically, most lamia families, including the Redferns, are quite patriarchal and tend to look down on women.
  • Evil Sorceress: Back when she was a witch, delving into dark magic and sacrificing babies to drink their blood and become immortal. She retained her powers after becoming a vampire, in particular shapeshifting and glamours, though she made a point of stating she wasn't a witch anymore.
  • Evil Twin: To Hellewise, though downplayed in that they they don't look much alike and apparently used to get along (Hellewise actually helped her initially in her research into immortality, only to draw the line when she learnt what it would involve, and was truly horrified when she realised Maya had gone ahead with it).
  • The Exile: After being defeated by Hellewise, she and her son were driven into exile by the witches.
  • Fallen Hero: Hinted to be one. She was once a beloved ruler of the witch tribes alongside her twin sister (and may have fought for the witches against the dragons), but her jealousy and lust for power led her down a dark path and made her one of the witches' greatest enemies.
  • Fatal Flaw: Her constant need to "win". She refuses to accept defeat or second best on account of her ego, which directly causes her death - Thierry and Hannah had been prepared to let her go and have peace, but Maya couldn't stand the thought of losing and so tries to kill Thierry. Hannah, acting to protect him, fatally stakes Maya. Also, her spite and cruelty. As well as driving her aforementioned actions - thus leading to her demise - her poor treatment of her werewolf Mook results in him betraying her to Circle Daybreak, which directly leads to all her plans being undone.
  • Faux Affably Evil: She is usually quite pleasant, if not condescending, especially to Hannah (whom she wants to trust her). However, she’s anything but nice beneath the surface and her cheery persona really just highlights how she treats stalking and murder as a big game.
  • Gaslighting: She does something like this to Hannah every time she meets her, telling her that Thierry stalks and murders her in each of her lives, and putting seeds of doubt in her mind about his love for her.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: It's implied her jealousy of her sister prompted her to seek immortality and her jealousy of Hannah is what drives her to continually murder the girl and frame her soulmate, Thierry.
  • Hot Witch: She was said to be "pretty" even as a witch. After becoming a vampire, she's "hauntingly beautiful".
  • Hypnotic Eyes: It's how she tricks Thierry and turns him into a vampire.
  • If I Can't Have You...: When Thierry tells Maya that even if she kills Hannah permanently, he'll still never be her's, Maya attempts to kill him for this reason. Luckily for Thierry (and unluckily for Maya), Hannah is standing nearby with a handy stake...
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: It's implied that deep down, what she really wants is to be loved by someone. Unfortunately, her selfish nature and Lack of Empathy means she can't really understand how love works, resulting in her going to drastic measures to force people into adoring her, and being unwilling to share affection with others, trying to destroy those she views as 'stealing' the love and attention she believes she deserves. This is really highlighted when Thierry rejects her once again in the climax of Soulmate; she seems genuinely upset that he has never returned her affections, as well as confused as to why her actions cannot be regarded as love.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: It was never enough for her to be 'just' a powerful witch; she wanted to be immortal as well.
  • I Love You, Vampire Son: Takes this to very creepy, obsessive levels in regards to Thierry, the first vampire she created. He eventually points out that she's actually got a case of Entitled to Have You and doesn't truly care about him.
  • Immortality Seeker: She was this thousands of years ago, going to some extreme lengths to eventually achieve this. Although she was somewhat surprised that she had to keep drinking blood to survive, she regarded it as an inconvenience at most, and is overall quite pleased with the results.
  • Impaled Palm: While attacking Hannah in Thierry's form, she's able to stop her by stabbing her through the palm with a pencil. Hannah mentions that she could feel the point of the pencil against her own skin, meaning she actually managed to drive it completely through Maya's hand. As it's wood, it doesn't heal quickly and is very painful, prompting Maya to retreat. It's later confirmed that it was actually Maya who's been killing Hannah when she shows off the pencil wound to Thierry, while Hannah herself becomes suspicious when she sees that Thierry's hand doesn't have a corresponding wound.
  • Insane Troll Logic: She seems to believe that stalking and killing Thierry's soulmate repeatedly, or even killing her off permanently, will somehow convince him they belong together. It's also possible, though, that her motivation is based around 'If he won't be with me, I'll just make his life a living hell in the meantime'.
  • I've Come Too Far: During her Motive Rant to Hannah, she says she can't give up now, because she's "given up too much" and "it can't all be for nothing".
  • Karmic Death: She is staked by Hannah, the girl she has tormented and murdered for thousands of years, after she intended to do the same to her and/or Thierry. Hannah and Thierry had actually been willing to let her go, but Maya couldn't accept that she'd lost and tried to kill Thierry.
  • Love Hungry: For Thierry's love. Takes it to Yandere levels.
  • Mad Love: She hasn't stopped trying to pursue Thierry for thousands of years, despite him making it abundantly clear he wants nothing to do with her.
  • Manipulative Bitch: She tricks Hannah into believing it's Thierry whose been killing her in each of her lifetimes and manages it so well, Hannah starts subconsciously warning herself off Thierry in her latest incarnation.
  • Meaningless Villain Victory: Thierry claims that any victory she achieves over him and Hannah will be this: if she succeeds in turning Hannah into a vampire – preventing her from reincarnating ever again - and kills her, Thierry will still love her no matter what and will never get with Maya. If she kills Thierry too, then, as he puts it “no one you hate will be around to witness it” and she still doesn’t get him, making it pointless. It actually prompts a Villainous Breakdown, before she tries to Take a Third Option by killing Thierry and sparing Hannah to spite her, but Hannah doesn’t take this well...
  • Mommy Issues: Implied. She refers to her mother as an "old harridan", but doesn't elaborate on their relationship.
  • Monster Progenitor: She is the first vampire in existence; she turned herself into one using some kind of dark ritual that involved sacrificing and drinking the blood of her tribe's babies. She also conceived and gave birth to the first lamia vampire.
  • Mood Ring Eyes: One of her most defining features, combined with Technicolor Eyes. Her modern-day descendent, Ash Redfern, has them too.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Maya's motivation for killing Hannah...repeatedly.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!:
    • Her mistreatment of her werewolf Mook results in him selling her out to Circle Daybreak, leading them straight to the abandoned mine she's hiding out in to rescue Hannah.
    • In a less direct sense, making Thierry a vampire, seeing as he eventually becomes one of the Big Goods of the series and helps a lot of people. Also, in a twist of irony, if she hadn't made him a vampire, he might never have fled his tribe, stumbled across the Tribe of the Three Rivers and thus met his soulmate for the first time.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: The official family tree states she is known as 'Maya Dragonslayer', suggesting she fought in the war between the witches and dragons and managed to kill at least one. This is never confirmed in the books, though. Her epic duel with Hellewise also counts.
  • The Older Immortal: The very first vampire in existence, born in prehistoric times.
  • Older Than They Look / Really 700 Years Old: She barely looks out of her teens, but is over 10,000 years old.
  • Only One Name: Unlike her sister, Hellewise Hearth-Woman, she's simply called 'Maya' most of the time. The fanguide and Witchlight say she originally had the surname of Hearth-Woman too, though she presumably ditched this after betraying the witches, whilst the family tree states her surname is Dragonslayer, though she's never called this in the novels.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes down to her waist.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Incredibly beautiful with pale skin and long black hair. Sometimes crosses over with Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette. She's also an Evil Brunette Twin to Hellewise.
  • The Resenter: Towards Hannah, Hellewise and possibly her own mother.
  • Sororicide: Though Maya was ultimately defeated by her sister, Hellewise died as a direct result of the wounds Maya inflicted on her in their duel.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: She stalks Hannah Snow for around 10,000 years in order to murder her in each of her lifetimes, in the hopes it'll persuade Thierry to be with her. She apparently stalks him as well.
  • Terms of Endangerment: Mockingly calls Hannah “sweetpea” and “cupcake”.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance:
    • Blaise Harman, a very distant modern relative of her's and descendant of her twin sister, is said to bear a resemblance to her in appearance and personality, to an extent. However, Blaise, for all her flaws, is nowhere near as deranged and amoral as Maya and has a far more positive relationship with her family.
    • Although not commented on or made explicit, Maya also has several similarities to her descendant Lily Redfern - they're both pale, dark-haired beauties with a severe Lack of Empathy for others and goals revolving around vampire superiority. Funnily enough, they also both die within a few months of each other; Maya is killed at the end of Soulmate, while Lily dies at the end of the next book, Huntress.
    • To a far lesser extent, Maya's modern descendent Ash has eyes that change color just like her; Hannah actually thinks to herself when she meets Ash that he "has Maya's eyes" and is slightly unnerved by it.
  • The Unfavorite: Hinted at. She's very jealous of her twin sister and displays a disdainful attitude towards her late mother, indicating that from Maya's perspective at the least, Hellewise is better-liked. Not that Maya really helps to endear herself to others.
  • The Unfettered: A dark example. There are very few levels she won't stoop to in order to get what she wants. She also seems to view people who do have standards and lines they won't cross as being weak.
  • The Vamp: A literal version (though not quite as overtly sexual as some examples, due to Night World being aimed at teenagers). She's strikingly beautiful, seductive, manipulative and definitely deadly. She comes across as quite predatory towards Hannah and Thierry; in particular, the flashback scene to the night she turned Thierry is full of disturbingly sexual undertones.
  • Villainous Breakdown: After Thierry makes it clear to her that no matter what she does, she'll never have him, she slumps over...before trying to murder Thierry as a last 'screw you'.
  • Villainous Crush: Has one on Thierry, to the point where trying to win his heart is her main goal for thousands of years. Thierry, however, points out that Maya doesn't truly love him; she just "wants" him.
    Maya: I loved you[...]Why didn't you ever understand that?
    Thierry: Because it's not true. You never loved me. You just wanted me. Mostly because you couldn't have me.
  • Villain Respect: Gains some for Hannah after she stakes her to protect Thierry, laughing and stating "You had guts after all".
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: She can turn into a giant bat and it’s implied she can take other people’s forms too, or at least create a Glamour to take on their appearance. She’s one of the only vampires who can do this, probably because she’s the original and was a witch beforehand.
  • Woman Scorned: Thierry and Hannah find out the hard way that Maya doesn't take rejection lightly.
  • Would Hurt a Child: She sacrificed four babies and drank their blood to become the first vampire.
  • Yandere: Towards Thierry. She is obsessed with him and enjoys tormenting him when he rejects her...and has been doing so for thousands of years. She is usually quite cheerful towards him and refers to him in endearing terms...even whilst she's doing or plotting to do horrible things to him or anyone that threatens their 'relationship'.
