As a vampire, Bloodstorm 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, Bloodstorm is dependant on consuming human blood every night.

Bloodstorm One was to be the first of a line of vampiric shocktroopers utilized by Hydra's D.O.A.. He was cloned from DNA taken from Dracula and created in a lab by Lt. Belial, but as soon as he emerged, he began slaughtering all the Hydra personnel present, including Lt. Belial at the hypnotic command of Varnae.
