As a vampire, Night Terror 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.

Carl Blake first gained prominence as an assassin for an unidentified US government agency. He befriended fellow agent Wanderer, and the two became close, forming a blood pack in spite of Blake’s distain for humanity. When the agency targeted a Yardi drug operations head, who turned out to be the vampire Steppin' Razor. Failing to make the hit, Blake was instead captured by Razor, who, sensing Blake’s contempt of mankind, opted to vampirise the government agent rather than kill him. Rendered partly amnesiac by the shock of the transformation, Blake was found and recovered by the agency. Discovering he was now a vampire, the agency began running tests on Blake, whom they dubbed Night Terror, but he soon escaped and without his memories began to wander the streets.
