As a vampire, Topher is a member of the living dead, virtually immortal and only able to be destroyed by direct sunlight. Unlike most vampire’s however, he is not affected by piercing of his heart, beheading, burning and scattering of his ashes. 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, Topher is dependant on consuming human blood every night
