Poet Laureate







First Appearance:


Last Appearance:


Loren Blake was the temporary Poetry professor at the Tulsa House of Night. The professorship is an honorary position awarded to him because he was the Vampyre Poet Laureate. Professor Blake was unusually young for a Poet Laureate (in actual years he was only twenty-five) and was the youngest Vampyre Poet Laureate in vampyre history. His accomplishments are also extraordinary because he was a man and due to the vampyre matriarchal society, most Poet Laureates are women. He also used Zoey Redbird to get Erik Night to break up with her.


Professor Blake has dark hair and eyes, is over six feet tall, is incredibly handsome (even for a vampyre) and looks like every woman's vision of the perfect man. He also has a deep and powerful voice. His Vampyre Tattoos are a spectacular design of lightning bolts.


Professor Blake has written poetry for as long as he can remember. Poetry writing is his career, his passion, and his hobby. He is an expert on many famous vampyre poets, including Shakespeare and several ancient Japanese masters.
