Blade also called the Daywalker was a vampire hunter.
When Blade arrived, Dracula had already defected from Mephisto, and had struck a deal with Nick Fury of not turning anyone else into a vampire. Without allies, Mephisto tried to influence Blade into helping him, by offering his help in finding the most dangerous vampires, but Blade ignored the demon's offer and joined the Academy instead.
Blade confronted Dracula and was ready to kill him, but Dracula convinced him to have a truce while they were both attending the Academy, Blade asked him for a list with the locations of the 20 most dangerous vampires and Dracula did so. Blade then went on a trip where he killed 19 of those vampires. Upon returning he told Dracula what he had done, and also that the last one was a female vampire that took control of the vampire nation from Dracula while he was away.
