He is a strong and tall man dressed in black clothing. Due to being a dhampir, half-human and half-vampire, he possesses fangs that are often concealed.
Due to his nature as a dhampir, Blade's eyes are hurt by sunlight, which is why he always wears sunglasses.
He has all of vampiric powers and none of the weakness (beyond his eyes being hurt by sunlight, and a thirst for blood). He has superhuman strength, speed, stamina, senses, rapid regeneration, nigh-immortality & immunity to sunlight, wooden stakes, silver, garlic, and holy water. He counters his thirst for blood by consuming animal blood, blood from blood banks, and a serum that is similar enough to blood for him to consume.
