I would watch the fuck out of a series revolving around Abraham when he’s younger. His life is so interesting and tragic.
God, I love this character.
Eichhorst needs a new fucking hobby that doesn’t involve him stalking Abraham across countries and decades.
Being a Nazi Vampire - Really insightful interview by none other than Richard Sammel of The Strain, who gives his views on his complex character Thomas Eichhorst, vampires, Eichhorst’s relationship with Abraham, being typecast to play a Nazi and stereotypical roles given to German actors.
Let’s be honest here: we all wish we had a badass grandpa like Abraham.
Anonymous asked: Fuck/Marry/Kill - The Strain Characters!
Lol, these seem to be everywhere lately! Ah well, guess it’s my turn.
Fuck: Since I’m basing this on looks alone…
I feel horrible for saying this but…Eichhorst. Ugh. Horrible excuse for a human being, but well; he’s got that whole silver-fox-hot-older-guy look going for him plus he’s foreign. Now that we’re on it, Gus too - I like his bad-boy cocky face and his very impressive body. Damn Gus!
Both are only good for a romp though, as their personalities leave much to be desired in terms of a partner. And Eichhorst is plain evil.
Marry: Abraham absolutely, though when he’s young of course. (Not that I don’t love him when he’s older, but c’mon, he’s like 90). Anyway, he’s compassionate, brave, smart, good with his hands (helllllooo carpenter/vampire slayer!) and he desperately needs a good cuddle since his life is so horrible, poor baby. Not to mention he’s extremely good looking and has an epic sword that sings of silver.
Kill: This is a no brainer - Eph. Oh boy, Eph. Does he get more unlikable in every episode or is it just me? What a pity he’s the main character - he needs some serious development. There are several other characters I dislike as well, but Eph being the main character and so unlikable - that’s just no good.
Abraham Setrakian, Vasily Fet, Gus Elizalde and Mr. Quinlan need to join forces so they can be the most epic badass quartet in history.
I mean, you’ll have the perfect balance of epicness:
Grumpy Old Mentor
Sassy Almighty Janitor
Half Vampire-Half Human Black Ops
They’ll drive around the city in their
headquarters bread truck fighting crime, kicking ass and ridding the world of evillllll!
Seriously, this shit needs to happen ASAP.
