- Complete Monster: Mr. Hood runs a magic house where children can be young forever and gain anything they want. Naturally, it's nothing more than an elaborate spider's web. Hood lures children in under these promises before draining them of life and soul, imprisoning them in the lake forever to prolong his own life. Calling himself the Vampire King, Hood delights in what he does to children and tries to seduce the young heroes to his side. When one of his minions tries to take his place after he believes Hood is dead, Hood seizes him and rips his head clean off.
- Foe Yay: A little disturbing considering Harvey is only ten, but Mr. Hood seems far too eager to convince him to stay as an apprentice, promising to give him whatever he desires in exchange and also often referring to Harvey as "his" (his little thief, his lodestar, etc).
- Heartwarming Moments: "And love... love enough for a thousand Christmases."
- Nightmare Fuel: Lulu is slowly turning into a fish. Harvey becomes a vampire briefly and loves it. The idea of coming home to realize you've been gone for thirty years... the list goes on.
YMMV / The Thief of Always
