Edith Harker was the granddaughter of Jonathan and Mina Harker, whose encounters with Dracula were recorded in Bram Stoker's novel, and the daughter of Dracula's archenemy Quincy Harker. After the death of her mother, Sonya, Edith often accompanied her father as he sought to avenge his dead wife. Frustrated by frequent interference from Harker and his group of vampire hunters, Dracula abducted Edith to lure the team to Whispering Hell, an abandoned manse where the vampire lord was sure he would finish them. Dracula turned Edith into a vampire. Rather than endanger her father and his allies, Edith incapacitated herself to give Quincy Harker the chance to drive a wooden stake through her heart. He did so and Edith died without ever succumbing to her vampiric cravings.
Powers and Abilities
As a vampire, Edith Harker possessed a variety of superhuman physical and mental capabilities common to vampires.
Vampirism: As a vampire, Edith Harker possessed the ability to transform others into vampires like her by draining them of their blood. In the saliva of a vampire is a special enzyme that transforms a victim's body metabolically, resulting in the person being changed into a vampire three days later.
- Superhuman Speed: Harker was capable of running and moving at speeds greater than the finest human athlete.
- Superhuman Stamina: Harker's musculature produced less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of an ordinary human. She could physically exert herself at peak capacity for several hours before fatigue began to impair her.
- Superhuman Agility: Harker's agility, balance, and bodily coordination were enhanced to levels beyond the natural physical limits of even the finest human athlete.
- Superhuman Reflexes: Harker's reflexes were similarly heightened and were superior to those of the finest human athlete.
- Immortality: Harker had the potential to be functionally immortal. If she consumed fresh blood on a regular basis, she would have been immune to the effects of aging and to all known Earthly diseases and infections.
- Regenerative Healing Factor: Harker's body possessed an accelerated healing ability that enabled her to regenerate damaged or destroyed tissue faster and more extensively than an ordinary human. Harker could fully recover from injuries such as gunshot wounds, slashes, or punctures, provided they weren't inflicted with silver weaponry, within a matter of hours. Like other vampires, Harker's healing ability didn't extend to the regeneration of severed limbs or missing organs.
- Shapeshifting: Harker had the ability to physically transform herself in to a bat, wolf, or into mist for the purposes of traveling. As a bat, she was capable of flying as quickly as a true bat.
- Hypnotism: Harker had the potential to be able to hypnotize most people merely by making eye contact with them for a few seconds. Only an exceptionally strong willed individual would be capable of resisting her control.
- Weather Manipulation: Harker also had the potential of being able to generate storms of great power over a limited area of space. However, if she did so, she would be physically drained for several hours.
None known except was is normal for a woman in her age.
Peak Human Strength: Most vampires possessed some degree of superhuman strength, typically 10 to 20 times greater than what they possessed in life. In life, Edith's strength for a woman of her age and size was below normal. As a result, her strength did not reach superhuman levels as a vampire. Edith's strength, however, was increased to the peak of human development. She was as physically strong as a human could be without being considered superhuman and could lift a maximum of
