About Me
Jack Van Helsing is the biological son of the wizard Thomas Gabriel Van Helsing, and part of a long bloodline of vampire hunters that dates back to the 12th Century. His mother, Charlotte Dupont, worked in the Department of Foreign Relations in the Ministry of Magic, but unfortunately died during childbirth. His father later died, when Jack was at the age of eight, as he was ambushed in a forest in Romania by a group of vampires.

Jack inherited a special magical ability that runs only in a few magical bloodlines now, as many have died out. This is the ability to communicate with dragons, and those who possess this ability are known as "Dragon Lords". In medieval England, Dragon Lords helped control the dragon population from entering and destroying muggle villages, yet they are not needed as often in modern times due to the advancement in magic.

Recently, Jack was attacked by a werewolf, while tracking a unicorn in the Forbidden Forest, leaving him inches from death. Spending several weeks recovering in the hospital wing, he has almost completely recovered, despite a large, deep scar on his back that is the physical embodiment of the curse that lies within.

Having been without a true family for three years, he was recently adopted by TylerZac and Sienna, despite prior reservations. He eventually decided that he would allow himself to rely on others, having had to be independent emotionally from the dozens of foster homes he was passed between. Although he now has a family, he will have to allow himself to become more open about his emotions, and learn to become a part of this unit. He still keeps the expectations of his family history close to his heart, however, determined to exact revenge for the death of his biological father.
