Vampires 

Nick Knight - The occult police drama FOREVER KNIGHT/CBS/SYN/1992-96 (first aired on the CBS late-night series CRIMETIME AFTER PRIMETIME) starred Geraint Wyn Davies as Nicholas "Nick" Knight, an 800-year-old vampire turned cop.

Geraint Wyn Davies as Nicholas "Nick" Knight - FOREVER KNIGHT

Sired by Lucien LeCroix (Nigel Bennett) during the Crusades. Nick (real name: Nicholas De Brabant) regretted his decision to become a vampire and set out on a road of redemption by doing good deeds. However, Lucien Cross doesn't want Nick to loose his vampirism and will stop at nothing to see he remains one.

Currently, Nick works the night shift for the 37th Precinct of the Toronto Metro Police Department with his partner, Donald G. Schanke (John Kapelos). They report to Captain Joe Stonetree (Gary Framer) and later Captain Amanda Cohen (Natsuko Ohama) and Captain Joe Reese (Blu Nankuma). Nick lives at 7 Curity Avenue, Toronto, Ontario and drinks chilled cow’s blood for sustenance. To get around town, Nick drives a 1962 Cadillac convertible. He uses the car’s spacious truck in sun emergencies [vampires burn in sunlight].

Lucien LeCroix, is the Master of both Nick and Janette. He was once known as General Lucius, the commander of the Roman army. He was turned into a vampire ("brought across") by his illegitimate daughter, Divia during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.


Opening Narration

"He was brought across in 1228. Preyed on humans for their blood. Now he wants to be mortal again. To repay society for his sins. To emerge from his world of darkness. From his endless ... forever night."

                         -- Lucien LaCroix, Forever Knight


Forever Knight Quotes

Det. Nick Knight: I take it you need something.
Javier Vachon: Your doctor friend.
Det. Nick Knight: What for?
Javier Vachon: I've got a sick friend. I need her help.
Det. Nick Knight: She's not that kind of doctor.

      Javier Vachon:Javier Vachon

I hear she's pretty good with the dead. And the undead. Look, I can't take this one to the hospital. In the emergency room, what am I'm gonna tell them? He's allergic to penicillin, garlic, sunlight, crosses, and food. He's about four hundred and fifty and he can fly.

*Javier Vachon is a vampire and "snitch" for police officer Tracy Vetter.

   
Lucien LaCroix:  Les mortels meurent. Qu'importe la façon? "Mortals die. Does it really matter how or when?"
   
Det. Nick Knight: I need a favor, Nat.
Natalie: I don't know, Nick, favors for you usually involve more than "Can I borrow your car?"
Det. Nick Knight: I'll need that, too.

TRIVIA NOTE: The series was based on the 1989 made-for-TV movie Nick Knight starring Rick Springfield as a vampire-turned-cop. In the final episode, rather that remain a vampire, Nick asks LeCroix to put him out of his misery. Which he does. So ends the tale of the Nick Knight.
