History:

(Morbius#18-19, 22 - BTS) - Stoker was a member of the Vampires Lair Club. (see comments)

(Morbius#25/2 (fb) - BTS) - At some point Stoker found an underground entrance to a labyrinth that led him to a place he decided to turn into a hideout for himself and his followers the System, who had decided that the Vampires Lair Club had no vision. With their leader Stoker, who was now known as the Blood Leader, they turned their hideout into a temple for Morbius, torched the Vampires Lair Club and then hunted down homeless people and drained them of their blood at their temple. The murders eventually made it to the news and Morbius began to search for the murderers.

(Morbius#25/2) - Stoker welcomed Morbius, who had followed two System members, at his temple. Stoker explained to Morbius that they killed people for kicks and that the temple was created for Morbius, but Morbius wasn't grateful and told Stoker that he would go to prison for his crimes. Stoker just laughed and told Morbius that nobody would believe him. Moments later some homeless people that hunted Morbius, because they had seen him with the corpse the System members had dropped, broke into the temple. They saw their people hanging from the ceiling and attacked Stoker and the System. Stoker ran away, but couldn't get to the surface when a lattice blocked his way. Morbius had followed him and took Stoker's sunglasses. Stoker pleaded for his life, but Morbius told him with a big smile that he would now show him why he had been called "Blood Leader" at the Vampires Lair Club before Stoker.


Comments: Created by Karl Bollers & Max Douglas.

It is possible that Stoker had appeared before Morbius#25/2, but I just couldn't identify him as one of the Vampires Lair Club members present in Morbius#18-19 and #22.

To quote Stoker:"My soul is blacker than Mephisto's earwax" I'm not sure, but maybe Mephisto would like to proof him wrong.

System

They were former members of the Vampires Lair Club. They followed Stoker because he had a vision the club lacked. With Stoker as their leader they torched the Vampires Lair Club and killed homeless people to drain them of their blood at their secret underground temple. They wanted to be like Morbius and wore Bela Lugosi masks during the hunt. One night Morbius followed two members, who were carrying a sack with a corpse into the torched Vampires Lair Club. He followed them down an underground entrance and into the sewer system, where they had dropped the sack with the corpse. Morbius soon had to run away from homeless people, who thought he was the murderer. He soon found the systems temple, which was filled with blood, corpses hanging from the ceiling and the very alive human members of the System, including the Blood Leader. The System members stared at Morbius while Stoker tried to explain everything to him. A short time later the homeless people found the temple as well and attacked the System members when they recognized some of the corpses hanging from the ceiling. It is unknown if any System members survived the assault of the homeless people.
