Now to determine how many hoaxes Nixie got wrong. lol

Good thing vampires are obsessive compulsive. It isn’t as we’ll known a trait but in the original central European folklore on of the best ways to distract a vamp was to leave things ying around or to scatter stuff in front of them, especially small things like seeds. They would then have to stop, and count plus pick up the items before continuing.

Yes! Not many people know that one. Scattering seeds, or beads, or pretty much anything that a vampire might feel compelled to count is a good distraction. For now, he gets to focus his obsession on analyzing Nixie’s previous cases!

This was also the inspiration for Count Von Count on Sesame Street. in the earliest seasons of the show, he was even more vampire like, having hypnotic powers and doing stuff like laughing maniacally while lighting and thunder flashed after he finished counting. they toned that way down when they realized he was scaring kids.

Vampires don’t get hungry???
Unless this universe’s lore is different, he’s in for a very rude awakening over the next few days. =(

Oh geez! Avi is homeless? That bites the big one. He’s so getting the short end of the straw here with being a vampire and all.

But back on subject, I imagine that Avi is going to somewhat disprove all of Nixie’s previous hoaxes but will probably have no way to prove it to her satisfaction.

I like the pensive expression you game young Ames there in the last panel.

So if he follows all the classical rules of Vampires, shouldn’t he have a limited power of hypnotism, no shadow, no reflection, be unable to die from drowning, but be knocked unconscious by running water?
