Black Dagger Brotherhood Character Guide

One of the best known, most powerful series going is the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Focusing on the vampire warriors who defend their race against the evil, de-souled Lessing Society, the series itself has evolved from being straight Paranormal Romance to…something more. It is known for its intricate, multi-layered plotlines, strong action, and intense romance.

All credit for this guide goes to PhoenixFyre, who worked to pull all of this information together. It was a huge undertaking, and I am very grateful she shared it with us.

Black Dagger Brotherhood

Highly trained vampire warriors who protect their species against the Lessening Society. As a result of selective breeding within the race, Brothers possess immense physical and mental strength, as well as rapid healing capabilities. They are not siblings for the most part, and are inducted into the Brotherhood upon nomination by the Brothers. Aggressive, self-reliant, and secretive by nature, they exist apart from civilians, having little contact with members of the other classes except when they need to feed. They are the subjects of legend and objects of reverence within the vampire world. They may be killed only by the most serious of wounds, e.g., a gunshot or stab to the heart, etc.

They have little or no interaction with males, but can be mated to Brothers at the Scribe Virgin’s direction to propagate their class. Some have the ability to prognosticate. In the past, they were used to meet the blood needs of unmated members of the Brotherhood, and that practice has been reinstated by the Brothers. An Ehros is a Chosen trained in the matter of sexual arts.
