Basic vampire abilities
He was first introduced in the book was when Riley had sent a hunting party consisting of himself, Bree, Diego, and another vampire only known to Bree as "Spider-Man". Bree complained that rather than picking a direction for their hunt, he and "Spider Man" were having an argument over which superhero would make a better hunter: the Incredible Hulk or Spider-Man. Kevin grins widely and jumps onto the middle of the street just as a car is driving by. He grabs the car just as it is about to hit him and flips it over his head so it lands on the pavement upside-down. He goes towards the car to feed, but Spider-Man loses his control of his thirst and they both snarl and fight over the driver.
At the island, Kevin was seen where he snuggles with his mate, Kristie. He was the vampire often used by Riley when he wanted Raoul to do something. This was first showed when Riley called Raoul's name forward; Raoul would not come so Riley called Kevin and stated that he would become a group leader. Raoul would not stand for that and violently shoved Kevin out of the way to stand rightfully next to Riley. Another time was when Riley was trying to get everyone into the sunlight for the first time. No one would come forward, even Raoul. Riley resorted to calling and forcing Kevin out. As Kevin stood out in the sun glittering, Raoul reluctantly came after. That made it seem like Kevin was the first of the newborns to come out into the sun (besides Bree and Diego during their adventures together).
