Durham Red is a mutant unlike any other. Radioactive fallout from atomic wars gave Durham a unique gift: vampirism. She must drink blood to survive, but her vampirism is metabolic, not supernatural. As a result she is fearless in the face of crosses, not afraid of sunlight or running water, and just loves the taste of garlic! Born in the Milton Keynes ghetto for mutants, she only got out by joining the Search/Destroy Agency as a bounty hunter, a Strontium Dog. But a new destiny awaits Durham Red, a destiny she never expected!
