Orphan?[edit]

I believe Mina may be an orphan judging from a letter she sends to Lucy Westenra. From Chapter XII, Letter Mina Harker to Lucy Westenra, 18th September : "I never knew either father or mother...". Count de Ville 01:57, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Hair Color[edit]

The article state's that in the novel Mina is blonde. Can anyone point to a reference, as I don't recall it ever describing that. Maybe I overlooked it. I shall have to read through the book again this weekend.-- Balcerzak 18:56, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Image-Mina Harker (Peta Wilson) in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen 2003.jpg[edit]

Image:Image-Mina Harker (Peta Wilson) in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen 2003.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

A couple of inaccuracies[edit]

Dracula also feeds Mina his blood, destining her to become a vampire at her death. The only way to forestall this is to kill Dracula first and the rest of the novel deals with the main characters trying to achieve this.

Dracula doesn't feed her his blood to make her a vampire - in Dracula simply being killed by a vampire is enough to make you a vampire, as happened to Lucy Westenra. So why does he do it, then? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.127.198.49 (talk) 11:48, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Mina then uses her inherent telepathic abilities to track Dracula's movements.

Inherent telepathic abilities? Where does that come from? Mina is linked to Dracula because she has drunk his blood, and Van Helsing uses hypnosis to get information about dracula out of her.

Pronounciation[edit]

How is "Mina" pronounced? Is the i "long", as in mind, minor or minute (very small), or "short" as in mink, mini or minute (60 seconds)? --Austrian (talk) 09:37, 30 March 2009 (UTC) minute

Should't we add this information to the article? Preferably with a source (e.g. a movie in which the name is pronounced in this way). Note that the word mina (unit) is pronounced with a long i, as in "mine". (According to my dictionary)]] --Austrian (talk) 13:43, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
