Frost was the vampire responsible for Blade's creation. It was Deacon Frost who had bitten Blade's mother, while she was pregnant and in labor with Eric. (*Frost feasted on the woman as she gave birth, passing on a series of enzymes that altered her baby. The enzymes entered the infant's bloodstream, transforming him into a Dhampir - a being tainted by a vampire's kiss, but not converted. Frost was driven away before he could slay the child, but Blade's mother died. *) (Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe AZ 2006#4: Deacon Frost) - Embarking on a long period of wandering, Frost eventually reached the U.S.A. and began killing indiscriminate, regarding humanity as cattle to feed his hunger.)
