(Tomb of Dracula IV#1) - Hiding under hoodie to conceal his true identity Blade followed Divinity Drake to a bar catering to vampires. While he was standing at the center of the bar he was approached by the vampire Hector, who started a conversation with him. Hector introduced himself to the hooded man and told him that he knew he wanted to see a real vampire. Hector was going to show him one and went over to the counter to Divinity, whom Blade believed to be a vampire. Hector introduced himself to Divinity and tried hitting on her, but when she saw in the mirror in front of them that he didn't have a reflection; Hector decided it was time to attack her. Blade took off his hoodie, grabbed Hector by the shoulder and tossed him into a well of blood inside the bar. Hector now recognized him and saw it as an opportunity to become famous. Hector quickly drew his sword and cut Hector to pieces. The patrons were shocked when the vampire fell apart in front of them.
