Real Name: Teresa

Identity/Class: Vampire

Occupation: Unknown

Affiliations: Don, Rich, Ian

Enemies: Rocco

Known Relatives: None known

Aliases: None

Base of Operations: Penthouse apartment, San Francisco

First Appearance: Bats, Cats and Cadillacs #1 (Now, October 1990)

Powers/Abilities: Teresa appears to have the full gamut of vampire powers - she is superstrong, can turn into a gigantic bat and fly, and can hypnotise people with a glance. From comments she makes it seems she can heal major injuries in a few hours. Presumably she also has all the traditional weaknesses.

History: Teresa has been a vampire for at least three hundred years, possibly more. She is a native of San Francisco, but left after somehow angering a local gangster vampire called Rocco. Sadly the series ended before we could get more details about her past. While she goes in for wearing a cape, she doesn't otherwise overdo the dead schtick, at least not compared to the gangster vampires. She isn't a hero though; she has no qualms about eating from a live victim, and then disposing of the resultant corpse. Basically, she's not a "good" vampire or a "bad" vampire. She's just a vampire, period.

Comments: Created by Tony C. Caputo, written by Diane M. Piron, and illustrated by Hannibal King.

Teresa sleeps hanging upside down in giant bat form. She is a sports fan, and so prefers to eat jocks.
