He tries to seduce her through dreams, an effort made easier by the fact that just about everyone around her is trying to convince her to be more hedonistic. At the climax, the vampire has put her in a trance and is about to bite her so they can share Eternal Love but then she whispers her boyfriend's name. The vampire tries to convince her to forget him, but she whispers his name again. Stricken, the vampire realizes he has no chance with her and releases her. He then commits Suicide by Sunlight.
