The Monk is a vampire who wears a red, monk-like outfit, with a hood that bears a skull and crossbones. He is leader of a cult called The Brotherhood, based in an abandoned castle/manor house on the outskirts of Gotham City. His followers, among who is the gothic Dala, feed upon the blood of captured victims. Only the most devoted acolytes are transformed into true creatures of the night however.
