As a vampire, Deacon Frost is a member of the living dead, virtually immortal and only able to be destroyed by direct sunlight, piercing of his heart, beheading, burning and scattering of his ashes, or using the magic Montesi Formula spell. Religious objects can also harm him and items made of silver. He is also bound from entering any dwelling unless invited, and he feels the need to break any mirror he encounters. Most significantly, Deacon Frost is dependant on consuming human blood every night.
Enhanced Abilities: Deacon Frost is a vampire and has enhanced strength, endurance and agility.

Hypnotism and Mind Control: Like all vampires, Frost has the ability to hypnotise most beings just by making eye contact with them for a few seconds. While under his influence, he can force people to do his bidding, though beings of great will power can resist him.
19th century German chemist Deacon Frost was obsessed with immortality. Believing vampire blood was the key, he created an immortality serum in 1863 using the bodily fluids from a recently slain vampire. Too cowardly to test the serum on himself, Frost kidnapped a young woman, Ilsa, as his experimental subject. Before he could inject he with the serum, the womanís lover, Helmut Grossman intervened and a heated struggle ensued during which Frost was injected with the serum. The results were everything that Frost had ever dreamed of: he became immortal, though he was now one of the walking undead.
