Rawbat is a villainous Vampire Cosmic. He is the master the vampire Bloodsports, a regular series of gladiatorial contests to the death performed to amuse King Coldfang. Like all his kind has accelerated healing, enhanced hearing, night vision and can walk on walls. He has displayed a frighteningly advanced facility for healing. Any wound which does to kill him or place him in stasis simply closes nearly as fast as it was created. He lives on the blood of living beings and is burned by starlight. Requires double the blood of the average Vampire Cosmic or his advanced healing ability faulters. He carries the Strike Scepter of a high ranking Striker officer he defeated in personal combat.
