Adri Nital was born in Jaipur, India, the son of vampire hunter Taj Nital. As a young boy, Adri was killed by vampires during an attack on his village led by Dracula.[1] Rachel slew the vampire that bit Adri Nital using her wooden crossbow, and drove Dracula off when he tried to slay Taj.[2] Adri became a vampire after this attack, but his mother kept him imprisoned at her home for five years. During this time, his father Taj was aiding Rachel van Helsing in hunting vampires, but despite Taj’s best efforts to stop them, a group of villagers broke into the Nital home and destroyed Adri Nital.[3]
