Charles Alan Brewster is the main protagonist in Fright Night and Fright Night Part 2. In the comics he hunts vampires and various other creatures of the night with washed up horror film actor Peter Vincent.
Growing up in suburbiaEdit
Vampire next doorEdit
Charley had a very active imagination and was a huge fan of monster and horror films while in high school. When he discovered that his new neighbor Jerry Dandridge was a vampire, nobody believed him.
Charley eventually turned to Peter Vincent, a has-been actor who used to star as a vampire hunter. When Charley asked Peter for help, the actor dismissed the boy as insane. Soon after, Amy and Evil enlisted the help of Peter to prove to Charley that Jerry is not really a vampire, but Peter discovered that Charley was right all along when he noticed Jerry's lack of a reflection. Subsequently, Jerry turned into a vampire and kidnapped Amy.
Charley later broke up with Amy and began dating Alex Young in college. He also started seeing psychologist Harrison and ceased to believe in vampires. This proved troublesome when Regine Dandridge emerged, seeking revenge.
Peter and Charley continue to combat various supernatural threats not just limited to vampires.
