Eric Brooks, better known as Blade to his friends and foes alike, is a half-human, half-vampire hybrid. He has the same superhuman strength, stamina, and senses as the vampires he dedicates his life to hunting, but doesn't share their vulnerability to sunlight. In Marvel's Midnight Suns, Blade trains other heroes for combat in the Yard outside the Abbey, and is a powerful damage-dealer during Tactical Missions. In our latest Prequel Short, we're excited to show you how Blade deals with fang-heads, as well as how he was recruited to the Midnight Suns by Caretaker.
"Our Blade has a long history with Caretaker - or Sara, as he knows her," explains Firaxis Games Narrative Lead Zach Bush, who authored this Prequel Short. "After years of losing himself to the vampiric beast within, Caretaker helped him regain control to become the Blade we know and love (and who vampires fear and hate). She’s one of the few people he respects, and it’s largely because the feeling is mutual."
The Daywalker is the fourth of five Prequel Shorts that explain how and why the Midnight Suns heroes have united to oppose Lilith. Check back next week for the fifth and final Prequel Short, Nico TV, in which we'll hear from the youngest member of the Midnight Suns: Nico Minoru. In the meantime, be sure to catch up on any of the previous Marvel's Midnight Suns Prequel Shorts you might've missed below.
