Place of Birth
Normal vampire abilities
Able to produce a "doppelgängers" or doubles of people he infects
Deacon Frost was a scientist who was looking for the key to immortality. For one of his experiments, Frost kidnapped a young woman in order to inject her with the blood of a recently killed vampire. (This is shown in the third picture posted.) However, the girl's fiancé broke into the lab, and in the resulting scuffle Frost was accidentally injected with the blood himself. The result of the injection turn Frost into a vampire. But, due to the unusual method of becoming a vampire, Frost was given the unique ability to produce a "doppelgänger" (a copy of someone) of those he turned into vampires himself. He was able to create an infinite number of doppelgängers by biting each doppelgänger. In addition, these doppelgängers were under his mental control.
Later, Deacon Frost bites a pregnant woman while she is giving birth. This act ended up passing on a series of enzymes that altered the woman's baby. The enzymes entered the infant's bloodstream, transforming him into a Dhampir (a being tainted by a vampire's kiss, but not converted). This famous Dhampir is known as Blade. In addition to Blade, Deacon Frost is responsible for Hannibal King being turned into a vampire. (To learn about Blade and/or Hannibal King, just click on their highlighted names above.)
Eventually, Blade and Hannibal King teamed up against Deacon Frost and his army of Blade and King doppelgängers. Blade and King managed to defeat and apparently destroy Frost in his underground hideout, stabbing him twice and leaving his body to be consumed as his hideout exploded.
Many years later, however, Frost reemerged. This time he attempted to gain control of Garwood Industries through Donna Garth (daughter of Simon Garth--aka "Living Zombie"). But, Blade, Hannibal King, and Brother Voodoo foiled Deacon Frost's plan. (To learn about the highlighted characters, click on their names above.)
Recently, Deacon Frost appeared at the summons of Dracula to defend the Lord of Vampires as he underwent a magical ritual; however, Dracula ended up being staked by Blade. (Click on the highlighted name above to learn more about Dracula.)
Although the Blade movie retains Frost's upstart ambitions, he was portrayed as much younger in the movie than in the comics.
