- "Newborns! I mean, just so... succulent."
Nigel Beckford is a recurring character in the fifth season. He is played by guest star Henri Lubatti and debuts in "Authority Always Wins". He is a grotesque-looking vampire, with a disturbing appetite for babies blood.
Nigel was once a nurse practitioner in a maternity ward, but instead of delivering babies, he would eat them, leading to him being arrested by the Vampire Authority, and imprisoned in the cells beneath their New Orleans headquarters.
Nigel is seen in the cells locked away with Eric, Bill and Nora. The UV machine they use to burn vampires has taken it's toll on Nigel. His skin is now badly burnt. ("Authority Always Wins")
