Before Eric Brooks was born, his mother, a prostitute, was attacked and bitten by a vampire, dying while giving birth to him. Raised by the girls of the brothel where his mother worked, Eric didn't know that the vampire venom in his blood had made him different from anyone else until he was a teenager. The first vampire Eric ever killed was his own mother, who had been converted by her attacker and killed the girls of the brothel. As Eric entered puberty, his vampiric traits began to assert themselves. For a time, he survived by feeding on the blood of homeless people.

One night, Eric was discovered by a vampire slayer Van Helsing, who took him in and created a serum to help suppress his need to feed on blood. Noah taught young Eric his trade and trained him in the art of combat. Now, as Blade, Eric continues to hunt purebloods that are out there wreaking havoc on innocents.
