Personality Edit

Julius is exceedingly terrifying, especially towards his own followers, he installs fear into them, and because of this they obey him and his every command. Julius typically instructs his comrades to do things that he would never do himself. This is not to say that he is a coward but that Julius feels that he's above doing such things. He's always shown a need to be in power, to have more control, even more than Dmitri.

Abilities Edit

Julius possess the common abilities associated with vampires, which consist of but is not limited to advanced speed, advanced strength, longevity and super senses. He is incredibly strong, however, not nearly as strong as his maker, Dmitri, he was no match, even with the opportunity to take him out from behind.

Once Julius is bitten by Vanessa he loses his vampire abilities including his advanced strength. However, because of his past as a boxer he retains his fighting abilities and level-headed demeanor making him a strong ally when fighting against vampires.

After being bitten by two different variations of vampires, Julius has the following abilities

  • Vampire Virus Immunity: Julius, along with the others bitten by Vanessa, is immune to the vampire bite and his blood is unappetizing and does not provide nourishment to vampires. He can also sense Vanessa's presence.
  • Rapid Cellular Regeneration: Julius has been changed into an enhanced human due to being changed back from being a vampire and then bit by a vampire from Scar's bloodline, a vampire who was experimented on. The changes allows him to heal from any injury near instantaneously.
  • Resurrection: After being bitten by a daywalker, a vampire of Scar's bloodline, Julius will resurrect anytime he is killed from damage that he cannot regenerate in time. He will go into a hibernation-like death state and he will eventually regenerate and come back to life. He may be immortal.
