Morris is Hugh's father and a veteran Vampire Hunter. He and Nathan's parents sealed Count Dracula 10 years ago. Morris does not believe in favouritism, and therefore chose Nathan as his successor instead of his son, Hugh.
He and his apprentices went to Dracula's castle in 1830 to prevent his resurrection. However, they are too late, and Dracula is awakened by Camilla. He lacks his full power, though, and prepares a ritual to drain Morris's very lifeforce to replenish his own powers.
